4-29: 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.
4-27: Folding@home seems to have gotten into gear again and is updating user stats regularlly. Last week Team Crunchinator completed 10 work units and earned 2,636 points. It's all going down in the Hobbies department today.
4-24: The Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary is back online for another year of the trials and tribulations of a garden variety hothead looking for new and innovative ways to burn the begezus out of his mouth. I'm growing a new chili a friend sent me seeds for, fresh from the slopes of the Himalayas ... by way of the Netherlands! It's going down in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department.
4-22: "Spring is here and it's time to get outdoors. It's also time to talk about the one sport that sharpens the mind and muscles, secures your freedom, prepares you for hunting and ensures your ability to successfully defend yourself, your home, your family and your country-that's competitive shooting!" Read more about getting involved in competitive shooting on the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.
4-20: Maybe Folding@home has started updating their statistics servers more often. I'll check more often now. Meanwhile, during the last month we crunched 69 work units and earned 16,790 points! Watch our progress in one of the worlds largest distributed programming projects on the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.
4-15: "Every gun owner, every veteran, anyone in the military-no, every honest citizen of this nation should be outraged by what happened in the District of Columbia to U.S. Marine Cpl. Melroy H. Cort, a decorated, severely wounded Iraq war veteran." Read why on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.
4-8: "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 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.
4-6: The House of Wacks would like to wish you a happy and prosperous April Fools Day. Just kidding, we want you sad and poor, with your hand held out to the House of Wacks like a socialist to their nanny government. Just kidding, we don't care about you! Just kidding, we don't care about anything! K, enough of this BS, the House of Wacks is rolled over for a new month. Welcome to April, don't let March smack you on the butt on the way out.
