    Folks, if we gain even about this many folks per day over the next year, we will be almost 10,000 strong!

    Here was the article giving us this burst of membership: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07324/835296-85.stm

    Keep up the good work, and check your profile - at least tell us your state so that we can report how many OCDO members are from each state when we do press releases.

    Thanks!

    Mike & John

    Nice... though how many of those are anti's with a morbid curiosity, or "L"EOs hoping to find out "who all the extremists are"? But, I'll hope that all or most of them are freedom-minded Americans wishing to join our cause.

    Got my state and town... If the government wants to track me that badly, listing my town isn't going to slow them down.

    Huh? The web site is open for review to anyone without registration, even to view attached documents.

    Anyone can figure that out without joining.

    Of course, stupid is as stupid does.

    Fair enough, I'll admit I entirely forgot that it wasn't necessary to register in order to view the forums. It's just been so long... :shock:

    It may be helpful on the profile page to have city & state vice city only. I have updated my profile to include my state of residence.

    You can do city and state separately...

    The "State" option is in the drop-down menu above the "City" text box.

    Well, mine displays properly, correct?
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Weird, the State drop-down box doesn't load in Opera.

    It does in Firefox, though.

    Then again, PMs don't work in Opera. (FF is ok, though)

    Why is the link to PDO still shown. It has been history for months now.

    Why not change it to Handgunlaw.us?

    FTA:

    "Good Lord," Mr. Rendell said, "under one gun a month, you as an ordinary citizen can buy 12 a year. It you're married you can buy 24 a year. Who would need more handguns?" And it doesn't affect the purchase of rifles, he added.


    So why in blazes are you trying to get it passed, if it isn't going to do anything?

    IE only for transactions with M$/N and because it is integral with Windoze. When WinXP is obsoleted then I will be on a Linux distro. http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut00...vista_cost.txt

    XP has been obsolete since it was introduced....this is evident by all the patches to fix all the "holes" that came in all the upgrades......which started before XP was "on the shelf".
    Just one of those things to make you wonder.......anytime you access a M$ server, it sits "behind" a Linux server that has the "net" connection......M$ servers have no direct connection to the net. This was the only solution they could find to keep "Blaster" from wrecking their system a few years back.
    I switched to PCLinuxOS about 2 years ago... http://www.pclinuxos.com/ ....one of the best computer related decisions that I've EVER made.
    For an idea of how significant that is, my first computer was considered fast at 12Mhz (yes, twelve Mhz), had 384K...that is K, not M, of RAM and no hard drive......and, no such thing as M$ Windoze then.
    If you have any questions that I might answer regarding my "swap-over"...drop me a PM
    BTW...Mozilla Firefox is a great replacement for IE if you have a need to stay with "doze".

    I would also like to add that I have noticed the following.

    Not everyone from Indiana is showing when you click on the map "Indiana", only the people from "Indiana, USA" show up. Anyone else noticed this?

    One thing I've noticed is a lot of folks have their City and State combined, instead of typing in their City and selecting their State from the drop-down menu...

    Well, I've apparently gone stupid or something, but the only drop-down menu I see is for "country" not "state" so I just added my state to the 'city' field. Sorry if that isn't helpful, but then neither is the profile screen, as it appears on my machine...

    Try using different browsers and/or computers with diff operating systems. The state should list in the second line under you name when you post.
