Onewoods.net login

For those of you who still have an @onewoods.net login for the PW Classifieds….. We moved the email for that to google mail back in the end of 2008 I believe. Recently google has colapsed what they called google app accounts (which included our @onewoods.net accounts) with their traditional google mail (gmail) accounts.

What this means to us is that if you go to http://email.onewoods.net you log in as before with just the first part. For example if you have ‘someone@onewoods.net’, you log in with ‘someone’ and your password.

HOWEVER! If for some reason you mistype the password or for some reason get bounced to the regular gmail.com page, you now log in with ‘someone@onewoods.net’ and your password.

I apologize for any confusion. If they had given me a choice, I would have opted not to mess with it.

Thanks,
Chris

Website Irregularities

From Monday afternoon through early Tuesday several of the Pennswoods.net websites were behaving somewhat erratically. As some of you may be aware, most of the network is run from Amazon’s EC2 service. However a small portion is still run from other data centers, and one of those became unstable on Monday. Monday evening I moved that service over onto Amazon’s EC2 network as well, and most of the issues resolved. There have been some delayed emails, and some bounced emails. At this point the network appears stable again, however some emails may yet be held in queue and be delivered in the near future. My apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Chris

Radio on the Internet

I’ve recently had the opportunity to work with some of Pennsylvania’s finest radio talent wit hthe launching of the AIR Network.

There are frequent updates by Dave Shannon on the AIR Network Podcasts, as well as an appearance by the infamous Steve Austin. I even contributed a piece on gardening. Check out Dave’s overview of Memorial Day, it is 6 minutes of your day that will be well spent.

Thanks,
Chris

Update on Renewing Ads

In February I offered some choices on what people would like to see added to the site next. The overwhelming choice was the ability to more easily repost ads. I’ve been working on this since then. While it has taken me longer than I’d hoped, last night I released an update that brings us closer to that goal. Under ‘My Ads’ you will find that recently deleted ads can now be called up. Only expired ads and self-deleted ads will show up. If they were removed for violating the posting guidelines, the ad is simply gone. I’ll keep working at it until I’ve completed the promised update.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying the day. I remember with fondness my days of working in Harrigan’s at the Holiday Inn in Indiana. Mother’s Day was one of the biggest events of the year for us. Man am I glad I don’t work in food service anymore. I still have dreams about that place. Sam Kenly, if you are out there reading, it is NOT funny to hand a waiter 2 twenty tops within 5 minuets of one another!

Speaking of Indiana, I was there the other day, stuck in traffic right in front of the parking lot of Uncle Sudsy’s. As you might imagine, Uncle Sudsy’s sells six packs. (Say that 5 times fast.) Also like you might imagine for a six pack shop embedded practically in the heart of a college campus, they sold over priced six packs. Unlike you might imagine, they tended to be rather hostile to college students. To young people in general, actually. I suspect they just got tired of a constant stream of fake driver’s licenses.

Anyway, I was positioned perfectly to turn into the parking lot, which I did. It was either that or sit there and get grumpier about the traffic. Turns out that May 7 was their last day in business, and everything was 30% off. Even at a 30% discount the beer was still over priced. However they had two examples of barley wine (which may or may not be the same thing as an “old ale”) and so I did in fact walk out with beer. I haven’t gotten around to trying either one, but if anyone is interested, I’ll post here when I do get to try it.

Hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day, mom!
Thanks,
Chris

Happy Easter!

Thanks again for bearing with me while the website was unstable. A few people emailed me to let me know that the logout was not working. I believe I have this working now.

Happy Easter everyone!

Thanks,
Chris
