New Contact Info

For many years, a good friend of The HeliOS Project has paid our phone service for us.  Due to a stagnant economy and diminishing returns on his retirement investments, he is no longer able to do so.  We want to warmly thank Ed Timar for his contributions to our effort.

If that name is naggingly familiar, it's because Ed gave us just short of ten thousand dollars to rebuild a computer lab for a Montessori school in South Texas two years ago.

He has been beyond a friend...

Unfortunately, Ed killed the account and the number we've had for years was reassigned before we could make arrangements to have it moved to our account.

I've obtained an older Sprint Palm Centro for mobile use now.  Not really ideal for our needs but it will do until I can get something better.  Because we spend 80 percent of our time in the field, many of your calls and emails are answered on the fly.  Many of them require action long before I would be able to get back to the house to answer them.  We will make due with this phone for now.

We are now with Sprint so if any of you have a better phone, please contact me and we'll make some arrangements.  

Our new number is 512-689-6556.

As well, we are faced with having to vacate our donated space and we might have a short-term solution in the works, but for now, all snail mail correspondence should be addressed to:

The HeliOS Project
308A Highland Estates Drive
Round Rock, Texas  78664

The new number is posted on our website but the address change won't be changed for a few days.  Please make note.

Also, we are having a hardware drive on December 11th.  If you are local and would like to help, contact me and we'll add you to the volunteer list.

All-Righty Then...

why not get a google voice number right now so that you can assign that? Then when the landline or mobile line changes, you don't have to worry about changing the number because the google voice number NEVER changes?

Too late...amazed that I didn't think of this myself. I could get the number and make sure those who don't get word of the change can still get through. I will see if I can't get that number assigned via Google Voice.

Thanks a bunch...

I don't think it's going to be practical to try to have your new number be transferred to Google Voice. Instead just pick a nice Google Voice number which will auto-forward to whatever phone, Sprint or otherwise you happen to be using that month.

Google Voice integrates really nicely with Android. You can set it to automatically route your outgoing calls through GV and replace your cell's voicemail service with the GV one. Unfortunately, I don't have the means to send you an Android phone at this time.
