Archived News for the Month of May 2006

News of the Day

 

5-31: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for May: Armed Citizen, Standing Guard, and The President's Column. Each of these features are valuable, information packed columns that you will find extremely helpful and interesting even if you are not a firearms owner yourself. For one, it keeps you apprised of the relative honesty and the intentions of the politicos you vote for. For another, it shows you the value of owning your own firearm for protection, recreation, hobby, business, and because for now anyway... you can. The Archives are available any day of the month from the NRA page in the Extra department, look for the link down at the bottom of the table of contents.

5-30: OK, so I took yesterday off. You probably did too, thanks to the veterans who gave their lives in order to help keep the planet a better place for others to live. Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department weighs in a day late however I took it's pulse yesterday so it is not skewed by the extra day. 2,805 points were earned by crunching 23 units, putting us ahead of 35 more competitors! Not a bad weeks work.

5-25: MaraMag Friday bursts from the starting gates with a butt load of classic Marathon docs, control panels and maps! Check out Marathon in the days that went on to make it famous amongst Mac gamers. Visit the MaraMag page in the Battle Cat's Litterbox and tell them that the Battle Cat sent you!

5-25: The Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary is updated today. Looks like some backup seedlings are going to get planted tonight. Read all about the doing of a certified hot-head in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department.

5-24: "The state of firearm ownership and privileges in other countries can teach us much about both the value and fragility of our freedoms." So says Sandra Froman, President of the National Rifle Association. Read more in the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

5-23: Transitional Tuesday brings forth June 2003 as the next victim candidate for conversion to HTML 4.01 Transitional. You can view all the golden oldie news in the News Archives.

5-22: Team Crunchinator is back in the saddle and kicking butt like Randolph Scott. Last week we earned 2,852 points by crunching 23 work units thereby besting 37 fellow competitors. We bad. View our badness in the Hobbies department.

5-19: The November 1995 MaraMag is uploaded to the MaraMag section of the Battle Cat's Litterbox. An early Marathon 1 solo map with terminals is in the download plus lots of other nostalgic goodies. Check it out.

5-18: The Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary is updated today over in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department. The 8 days in Hawaiian paradise may have been the undoing of this years Habañero crop. Read all about it. Or not.

5-17: "While the Brady Campaign proposes that people should submit to violence, we say to Americans that you have the right and the power to resist lawless force with constitutional force." Read Wayne LaPierre as he fleshes out this thought in the Standing Guard section of the NRA page in the Extra department.

5-16: I have some sad news for you raving Transitional Tuesday fans out there. It looks like this feature may be coming to an end soon. Be brave. For now though you can rejoice in yet another page you don't care about being converted to HTML 4.01 Transitional, mainly July 2003 over in the News Archives department.

5-15: Team Crunchinator is back in the saddle with another big week of power crunching Folding@home data in the Hobbies department. 2,936 points were earned by crunching a whopping 24 work units and bulldozing through 39 fellow users. It seems that Termie does better work with a lei around his neck and a plumeria flower behind his ear!

5-12: I goofed up last week in the Battle Cat's Litterbox and instead of supplying you with the September MaraMag, I linked you to the August MaraMag again. I fixed the link and now not only is September really there, so now is October MaraMag for 1995. In addition, I've added the MaraMag to the home page menu system, another oversight that is corrected.

5-11: The Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary is updated and uploaded to the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department. Live vicariously in the shoes of a hot headed gardener's season long focused and epic effort to burn his stupid mouth.

5-10: "Armed Citizen" is an article in the "American Rifleman" very similar to one of my favorite feature articles in "Guns & Ammo" called "Armed Response". These articles consist of short newspaper accounts describing the use of firearms by private citizens to protect lives and property. These are the stories that the mainstream media ignore because they are not so much interested in presenting the truth as much as they are interested in furthering their anti-gun agendas. Some very interesting reading here. It's going on in the NRA section of the Extra department.

5-9: Boy I bet you missed Transitional Tuesday while I was on vacation! Not to fear, it's back in all it's glory as I convert January 2003 into HTML 4.01 Transitional over in the News Archives department. Please, don't crowd - there will be room for everybody to view this - women and children first. No shoving, no running, no shouting. You will be allowed to bring food and drink, hell it's YOUR keyboard.

5-8: Looks like we are paying for all the fun and games we had in Hawaii for the last week and a half. Rather than forcing ourselves ahead of competitors in the Folding@home project, we fell behind by 25 and only folded 20 units since April 19th. Pretty poor showing on our part but we intend to make it up in the weeks ahead by non-stop dedication to service to our fellow man. View our disgrace on the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.

5-5: Warning - Cinco de Mayo, the day all the millions of illegal aliens have a drunken celebration of their own countries independence day... only they do it in the United States. You might want to boycott the highway in protest today because they will be driving drunk all over them and they won't be insured. - Warning over. In other news the Battle Cat's Litterbox is updated today with September 1995's MaraMag. All the files are intact in this one, including a HyperCard terminal editor!

5-4: Another entry into the Pepper Gardener's Diary has been added in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department. See how Hawaii makes millipedes brave and how peppers can be weeds in a pepper garden!

5-3: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for April: Armed Citizen, Standing Guard, and The President's Column. Each of these features are valuable, information packed columns that you will find extremely helpful and interesting even if you are not a firearms owner yourself. For one, it keeps you apprised of the relative honesty and the intentions of the politicos you vote for. For another, it shows you the value of owning your own firearm for protection, recreation, hobby, business, and because for now anyway... you can. The Archives are available any day of the month from the NRA page in the Extra department, look for the link down at the bottom of the table of contents.

5-2: Yay! New month and I just got back from 9 days in Hawaii so eat your hearts out!
