OA Images – Mainly Back Up

The Internet Guide to OA Insignia

John Pannell continues to work to bring his site back up and has added the following update:

2/21/2008 4:00am: After agonizing over trivial details, knowing the solutions had to be easy but were still escaping me, lots of progress has been made in the past couple of hours:

  • The original home page of this site, along with the rest of the public side of this site including the lodge pages are now back online.
  • The members area (price guide) is online.
  • I’m probably the only one that really cares, but “nice” URLs are back in use on the blog

Hopefully full functionality will be back soon.  Kudos to John for maintaining the site and working to get it back up as  quickly as he can.


Need a New Computer?

Perhaps a Univac?

UNIVAC is one of the earliest commercial computers and was easily the most famous computer of the 1950s. This film, produced between 1950 and 1952, shows how the UNIVAC computer was used in business, defense and by the census.
