Re: ROUTINE ON THE ROAD – REFUGE BY THE RIVERSIDE

Well, I can talk about the road... a lot. I travel constantly for work (and play). And I hear the comments often... how can you do it.... must be lonely... that is a long trip... All true. But... in this condemned age filled with offended, stationary, non-evolving, anchored tormented souls, the road...

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

The pace is slowing down soon. Other than a trip to Quebec City tomorrow for a few days, and a quick trip to Toronto the week after, I advised my boss that I am closing my 2019 work travel calendar.

It will be a welcome change to get things realigned pin-wise at home. My pin-chi is out of whack.

Re: Blocked by SPAMHAUS? Here's what to do...

Ok. So we are open to suggestions. But keep this in mind... 1- 15% of people fail to answer the security question... what is the name of the city in the site’s name. So to make the question harder may make it too hard to people. What can I say... 2- we have day jobs and lives. We cannot spend hours ...

fight it. or at least send an email asking them why ? I did write to them. Not a peep back. Why would they care anyways. They would most assuredly counter with the fact that I agreed to pay and that is that. It is pointless debating with them. The best solution is just never shop there again. Perio...

Not to sound like a party pooper but mentioning "Popadiuk" and "purchase" in the same thread is pretty much like pouring salt in a still-open wound for a few people... I would personally stay VERY far away, unless a distributor has some in stock, cash and carry. No pre-orders... ...

Ok, I admit... I haven’t bought anything from Marco’s in years. I thought I would give it a try. So... I ordered a set of drop targets for Mystic, and some small stuff for Black Pyramid such as new pop caps, coindoor decals, backglass channels, and 2 sets of coindoor bolts. So... nothing heavy, righ...
