Nice try, but *I* was the one who proposed it, *I* was the one to
organize it, *I* was/am the one who claims to always be concerned
with managing projects well.  What's more, there weren't people
who (seriously) offered to help and then backed out.  It really
was completely my fault.

Granted, the projects are well on their way, and (not counting
translations) might be finished by the end of Sep.  It wasn't a
*disaster*, but it was still a royal screw-up, and a good lesson
for me to remember in the future.
