Hi coderman,
Just to say...how much I enjoy your quest...and research... :-). Your
postings are always interesting...and informative. I knew very little about the
US Freedom of Information Act, until you started using it and posting the
progress (or lack of it) on the list.

no update on progress for FBI file on my person.

added new language for request:

"Any and all records, including cross-references and indirect mentions,
including records outside the investigation main file. This is to include a
search of each of the following record stores and
interfaces: the Central Records System (CRS), the Automated Case Support system
("ACS") Investigative Case Management system ("ICM"), the Automated Case
Support system ("ACS") Electronic Case File ("ECF"), and the Automated Case
Support system ("ACS") Universal Index ("UNI"). I also request a search of
"ELSUR", the database containing electronic surveillance information, for any
and all records or activities related to my person for any on-line account or
address or associated service. In addition, please extend the search criteria
across any external storage media, including I-Drives, S-Drives, or related
technologies used during the course of investigation. Please include processing
notes, even if request is denied in part. Please identify individuals
responsible for any aspect of FOIA processing in the processing notes, along
with explanation of their involvement if not typically assigned FOIA
responsibilities for the record systems above. Please include materials
responsive to this request from the San Francisco, California and Oregon field
offices if possible, to reduce overlap with field office requests."

as per https://www.muckrock.com/foi/united-states-of-america-10/foipa-17315/

this language is based on an article regarding an FBI FOIA legal contest. see

note that individual field offices may need to be queried individually, and
directly. currently MuckRock does not support requests to FBI field offices in
this manner.

i have date/times, locations, context for interactions with FBI back to 2001;
these intrusions which are the subject of the FOIA/PA search.
we'll see what it takes to get them... :P

best regards,
