Postage Due

Apparently I sent out a batch of Pennswoods.net T-Shirts without sufficient postage due.

The postage meter at Atlantic Broadband was shorting the weight of the packages, and wedidn’t’ apply enough postage. Some of them came back to us and we corrected the postage, though the bag still had “postage due” stamped on it.

If you had to pay to receive a t-shirt from me, please contact me and let me fix it. classifieds@pennswoods.net

My apologies for that.

Open Carry Walk in Brookville March 17

On Sunday March 17, 2013 there will be an open carry walk on Main st in Brookville, PA. Starting at 1 pm and followed by a meet and greet at the Pinecreek Firehall where they will have hotdogs, hamburgers, French fries, and drinks available for purchase. This is a peaceful gathering of people to show their support of their second amendment rights and to show that firearms are not and not all firearm owners are scary, dangerous, or a threat.

For more information, visit the group’s Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/333986836702525

services restored

As of approximately 2pm yesterday password changes and new account creation were restored. If you’ve been waiting on an account for more than 24 hours and still haven’t received an activation email, please contact me.

It’s been just about 24 hours, and I see new accounts being created, and I’m not hearing about problems with creating new accounts at this point, so I’m going to take that as confirmation that things are working as expected again.

Thanks,
Chris

computer troubles

Last two nights I’ve had people indicate that they are having some pages error out. I think generally hitting reload a couple times is doing the trick, but I’m looking into it.

I’m also having a separate issue with the registration server. At this time I am unable to accept new signups, and I cannot approve existing signups. I’m working to resolve this as quickly as I am able to do so.

Thanks.

Obama Demands

Among the things Obama called for in his message just a few minutes ago, he wants a 10 round magazine cap, increased prosecution for crimes (straw purchases in particular), he wants his buddy (B. Todd Jones) to be confirmed as ATF director.

Oh, and he wants to re-instate the 1994 assault weapons ban.

No armed guards to protect the schools. Apparently that is only good enough for politician’s kids.

No re-vamping of the ATF to figure out how things like Fast & Furious can happen, and no plans to fix it.

Call your representatives. The political shell game is still in full swing.

Obama and Gun Control

Obama is saying he’ll come out today with a comprehensive gun control agenda. Depending on what source you read this is likely to include as many as 19 executive orders, magazine capacity restrictions, and increased background checks.

It looks like an outright ban on all semi-autos is off of the table. FeinStein was going to introduce this legislation on Jan 3. Then it was “the end of January”. Now apparently it is Obama who is going to try to be the face of this movement.

I can only assume that the changing tactics is in response to the strong pressure being exerted by those of us calling our legislatures and expressing our views on the idiocy of passing laws that only impact law abiding citizens. Murder is aleady illegal, regardless of the tools used to achieve it.

Keep your eyes peeled.
