    Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The Whole World !! | The Canteen Crew
    ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS Most of us become familiar with the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," fairly early in our childhood days. Significant others, who happen to be adults, seem to stumble over themselves in being the historic "first" to teach the young child this bit of wisdom. Hmmmmmmm, I stumbled upon a quote for those of us who are adults with a burning desire to pass the Golden Rule on to our young children of today: "We have committed the Golden Rule to memory; let us...

    While organizing my basement a few weeks ago, I discovered an incredible trove of Sore Loserman bumper stickers, almost 200 of them, which are not doing any good at all in my basement. They are very much like the white version at the link. So starting now, for every $30 contributed to Free Republic, the contributor will qualify to have their very own piece of history mailed directly to their domicile. All you have to do is freepmail me your address and the link to where you brag about your new acquisition and associated contribution in the fundraiser thread. So...

  • And yet another underground antifreeper campaign being conducted via freepmail

    07/17/2017 9:48:56 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 127 replies
    Received a copy of the message pasted below that apparently is circulating via freepmail. In response, all I can say is John is my son and my partner in FR along with Chris and Amy. None of us make a six figure salary. I designed and wrote the original version of FR back in '96, but it was my very first internet project ever. It worked, but codewise it was a dog. And virtually impossible to maintain. When John came in with me, he rewrote the software and made it work greater than ever before and included maintenance tools that...

    ~The FReeper Canteen Presents~ Road Trip: Watervliet Arsenal, New YorkThe Watervliet Arsenal is an arsenal of the United States Army located in Watervliet, New York, on the west bank of the Hudson River. It is the oldest continuously active arsenal in the United States, and today produces much of the artillery for the army, as well as gun tubes for cannons, mortars, and tanks. It has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966. The arsenal was founded in 1813 to support the War of 1812, and was designated as the Watervliet Arsenal in 1817. It occupies 142...
  • Response time seems to be back to normal (for now). Prayers up.

    07/16/2017 6:00:14 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 34 replies
    Response time seems to be back to normal (for now). Sorry, don't know why. The system was dragging all day, but started working normally for the past hour or so. Thought maybe John had found and fixed the problem, but he said no. He doesn't know either. We have several servers running at the data center and most of them have been running fine. Could be the network switch or the front-end router/server (but it seems to be working fine). The database server isn't even breathing hard. The webservers are getting bogged down occasionally, but don't know yet if that's...

    U-571 U-571 is truly an "on the edge of your seat" film about a US Navy crew trying to sail a Nazi U-Boat to England in 1942 (won't explain how that happens, see the movie). In one scene, the boat is attacked by depth charges from a German destroyer. The crew turns to the young skipper for guidance and asks what they should do to save the boat and their lives. He says he doesn't know. Somehow they survive this attack. The wise, crusty Chief then has a fatherly chat with the skipper in a quiet...

  • Possible temporary workaround for our recurring response time problem. Also, John has checked in!

    07/14/2017 1:31:10 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 57 replies
    I'm very sorry (again), but our recurring response time nightmare is back (again). The good news, though, is John has finally checked in. He's been out of town a lot in the last couple weeks dealing with some urgent family issues regarding his other half's adopted child. Praying that works out soon. He also says his phone needs to be replaced and has not had time to get it done. The bad news is, he has not been able to resolve our server issue yet. He suspects it's some kind of intermittent error in our network switch or router and...

    I'm very sorry about the response time problems we've been having recently and now this page loading problem we're having today. I've called and left messages on John's phone, email, freepmail and facebook several times per day since Saturday. No luck. He seems to be off the grid. Don't know if he took a trip or his phone is broken, lost or turned off and he has no internet service in his new apartment or what, but I've been unable to reach him. Also do not have his new address. Hopefully, he'll check in soon and get it fixed. Don't...
