PLA Wiki

Wikipedia“Rbcp, you should start a PLA Wiki, so us forum goons can edit and write stuff about PLA, when you are too lazy to! The software is open source, so what have you got to loose?” – Raptor

“Okay!” – RBCP

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The wiki is gone! The wiki was causing serious issues with WordPress and I can’t figure out why so I had to take it down. I do plan to put it back up once I get things figured out. I saved the wiki database file before I deleted it, so once it’s back up you can continue where you left off. Sorry about this! Hopefully it will be back very soon. -RBCP

Shirts and Stamps are here!

If you’ve ordered a new PLA t-shirt in the past couple of weeks, your orders are being shipped out today. Expect them by Tuesday or Wednesday. And there are still plenty of them left, if you’d like to order one. Expect new sizes and colors to be available soon.

3/5 UPDATE: Grey shirts have been ordered! Sizes available are S, M, L, XL, XXL, and XXXL. You can order a grey shirt from the store now, but it will take 2 – 3 weeks for delivery. Black shirts are also still available. A huge thanks to everyone who’s ordered – the original batch of shirts is nearly paid off already!

Also available now are PLA rubber stamps, which Jersey and some other PLA Forum members convinced me to make available for lots of unethical stamping. You can spend all your free time, stamping the hell out of everything in the name of PLA for just $10.00 too! Click here to order one.

Who wants a new PLA tshirt?

A limited quantity of the photoshoped tshirt you see above is now available. As of now, they’re only available in black. But I plan on using the profits to buy more colors and sizes if I can at least sell these. So you should buy them to encourage me! They’re $15.00 each, plus $4.00 for shipping and they’re available in S, M, L, XL and XXL. If your fat ass needs XXXL, then wait a couple months and there might be one available. These are professionally screened shirts.

I’ll even knock a dollar off if you promise to send me a picture of yourself wearing the shirt. So send your $19.00 (or $18.00) via PayPal to rbcp AT phonelosers.org. Or you can mail it instead. Your shirt will be shipped right around the 1st of March.

National Inane Answering Message Day

According to Holiday Insights, today is National Inane Answering Message Day. They say, “An inane message is a senseless or meaningless message, or a prank call. Or, it could be an insane message.” So I guess…call up some strangers and leave them a few messages.

And if you’re looking for a good stranger to call, I have just the person! Sarah Manolis, a 19-year-old girl from Oregon! She’s spent the past four months collecting random voice mails from strangers and posting them to her website at www.sendmeavoicemail.com. As of this writing, she’s received 679 messages from around the world. Leave her a message about anything you want, as long as it’s not obscene and doesn’t involve singing.

503-766-2959

Sarah asks that you only call once per day, since she’s got a lot of messages to filter through and wants everyone to have a turn. Be sure to visit her website and listen to the other messages that have been left.

phonelosers.org WordPressized

Wordpress PLA LogoYou may not have noticed, but about a month ago phonelosers.org went through some major changes. About 75% of the site now relies on the popular WordPress platform, which probably opens us up to all kinds of brand new security holes! Not much has changed in the overall look of the site, though.

The good news is that the commenting system for every page is working again. RBCP’s shoddy PHP code is gone forever, and replaced with WordPress commenting. And hundreds of dead links have been fixed on the site during the process. Also, you can now subscribe to updates on phonelosers.org by using http://www.phonelosers.org/feed/. You can even register for an account if you’d like, but you don’t need one to comment. In fact, you don’t need an account for anything. It’s pointless to get an account. Why are you bothering??
