When I think about donating a little extra, then it gets blanked out. I don't ever know how long it will last or even if it will come back. Please let us all know if something is going on and if you need our help.

We are the future. Literally. And I guess it took some time to tranport us into that future.

I’m waiting for “4:00PM”, so I can see how the dow closes and make some quick investments. This seeing 2 hours into the future could be a lucrative thing.

And BTW, I still cannot fathom what types of programming or other system errors cause FreeRepublic to always have a bad clock value. I work with computing systems a lot, and I don’t think I could MAKE my systems behave this way if I tried.

Maybe they need to take a couple hundred from the “upgrade” pot and invest in an NTP server box. :-)

I know I'm gonna get banned, but I thought it happened this morning.

I'm not sure I want to self ban {it was too tough this AM}, I think I'll just state the truth according to gorp, and get banned by the mods.

I will vote for Newt next Tuesday in PA but if he that is not to be named gets to 1144, sorry, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

I've been talking to some local TEA party guys and it seems that they think that Evan Steinberg has an outside chance over Tim Murphy in PA district 18.

He is a real young, very conservative guy so if you live in PA 18, consider him in the primary next week.

Jim responded to a question about that on the Yahoo Groups site this morning saying when the quarterly goal went up is when they started saving for new servers. None have been bought and installed yet. Expects it to take two quarters.

Half of the amount of the new servers was raised in the last FReepathon. The other half is targeted with the current FReepathon. So, it’s my understanding that we’re still using the old servers.

You’re telling me there’s no new servers yet??

What was all this recent “upgrades” that was supposed to make FR speedy? of which the speed only lasted a week or two then it was back to a snail pace again.

Murphy should be tossed, I know I won’t be voting for him during the primary, but whether enough folks are paying attention to kick him out, who knows.

Looks like our db server is down. John’s trying a remote restart, reboot, so far no luck. He says he may have to drive up and get hands on. If so, will be down awhile. Sorry. Jim

FReepathon. Happens every time.
I think the servers overload because all the ex-FReepers and DUmmies come over here to see if FR made it’s goal yet and gloat back on their own playground.

Ross Denton: Well Mr. President, this is Matt Crandall. He was cheif engineer when the “surprise” occurred.

President Jimmy Carter: Okay, Matt. Give it to me straight.

Matt: [ nervous ] Well, the water level began dropping in the core, and the pressure neared critical in coolant pump #2, and a negative function in the control panel prevented us from preventing the, uh, minor explosion which occurred in the main housing.

President Jimmy Carter: Hmm. Sounds to me a lot like a Pepsi Syndrome. Were there any soft drinks in the control room?

Matt: Okay. You’ve got me. You’re too smart for me, Mr. President, sir. I spilled a large Coke to go on the control panel.

Ross Denton: Well, there you have it, Mr. President. Human error. No offense, Matt.

Rosalyn Carter: Well, I guess that’s it, Jimmy. We figured it out now. Let’s get out of here please.

President Jimmy Carter: Just a couple more minutes, sweetheart. I don’t get to do this everyday. Matt, right now, what is the level of radiation inside the containment vessel?

Matt: Well Mr. President, we don’t know. The large Coke knocked out all our monitoring systems, and no one’s been able to go inside of the room.

President Jimmy Carter: Well, I’d like to go in and check it out. I’ve never seen the core of a water cooler reactor.

Ross Denton: Uh, Mr. President, it may be dangerous in there.

Rosalyn Carter: Oh look, Jimmy, why don’t we just visit the Hershey factory?

President Jimmy Carter: Please, huh? I think I know how to handle myself around a nuclear facility. Besides, I’m protected. [ lifts his leg to reveal he’s wearing rubber boots ] I’ve got my little yellow boots on. I wanna go in and take a peek.
