Justin,
I tried what you said MULTIPLE TIMES and got no closer to having it work. I took Patrick's "ill-advised" workaround and used a newly-created yahoo mail account to get myself signed in.
I realize being the sysadmin for a project must be difficult at times, but terse snappy emails to me and thinly veiled snobbery at my lack of ability to follow simple directions were not appreciated.
I'm willing to let this all go if we can just forget about it and rejoice in the fact that another lover of freedom has joined the rolls of the FSP and is waiting to make his move to NH! :D

Frustration can oftentimes be multipled by personal situations -- my regrets at losing my cool over this whole thing. A good healthy meal, combines with a few cold beers and a great night's sleep to give me a better outlook, I find.
I registered under a new email address, and am trying to shrug off the previous day's stuff as, well, just stuff. My apologies to the forum for my temper tantrum, but being rejected for 3 more jobs and having my bank account down to $5 was pretty unnerving.

TexasRHCE,

Welcome to the FSP!!!  :)


Justin,

Thanks for trying to get things fixed and for dealing with the DNS problem.  Maybe TexasRHCE was just experiencing a rare glitch or something.  You never know nowadays!  :)

Texas,
I know of a person who is looking for some labor possibly (in NH) if you would like to participate.  it would amount to getting there and having food and a hat-hanging place... a foundation, so to speak... email me if interested...

Don't feel bad, Texas.  I was removed from the member list I believe and can't seem to join either.  We'll see what happens.  If I get it working, I'll try to pass anything helpful on to you.

Hey Texas
I will be in NH by May. I can't offer you a job, but since I am a novice Linux user I will ask you for free sysadmin advice advice as soon as you get here. ;)

I realize being the sysadmin for a project must be difficult at times, but terse snappy emails to me and thinly veiled snobbery at my lack of ability to follow simple directions were not appreciated.

Sometimes, when dealing with people over the internet, it's hard to remember that there is a human being on the other side of the conversation.

I find myself wanting to flip out on my customers sometimes (I sell stuff on eBay full time).  I have to bite my tongue so hard sometimes, I'm amazed I haven't needed stitches yet.

This is an unacceptable way to treat people and it certainly is not representative of the majority of the FSP membership I've met through these boards.

We argue and disagree with each other all the time, but we're usually pretty civil toward one another.

Thanks for signing on to the cause.  See you in New Hampshire.

I'm not sure you really need to be worrying about employment all that much.  From what I've seen NH has a very healthy economy and is likely to be one of the best places in the country to find a job by the time the move is made.  Also, with 20,000 new people, comes new business.  I am sure that many people are planning to do exactly what I am when the time comes and liquidate their current businesses and investments, then reinvest in the NH economy.  I foresee a staggering growth for NH's economy after the move has been made.  Especially when you consider that the there is likely to be a very high percentage of FSP members who are actively involved in the economy.  With the ideals and constitution required to do what FSP members have agreed to do, usually comes a hightened appreciation and involvement in the economy, meaning either business owners or investors.  I would be willing to bet that NH's economy gets a huge shot in the arm as a result of 20,000 dedicated individualists moving there within a 5 year timeframe.

P.S.  Speaking of business in NH after the move, is there currently any kind of oraganization or alliance of businesses within the FSP?   This might be something to consider once the move has been made.  A good profitable commercial backbone can do wonders for political activism.
