Next Tuesday, the 8th of November, one of the nations
most prolific and hard-hitting economics writers,
GERARD (“GERRY”) JACKSON of http://BrookesNews.com
will be our guest @ the Free Market Roundtable.
Due to Melbourne Cup frivolities and holidays, PRODOS Thinking Club on Monday, and Free Market Roundtable (and Discover Capitalism™) on Tuesday will be cancelled for this week.
I have been testing and comparing message board scripts for several months now and have settled on using FUDForum.
“The 1776″ message board is scheduled to be set up this coming week.
Tonight I’ll be attending the monthly meeting of the Richmond South branch of the Liberal Party. (The Liberal Party of Australia is similar to the Republican Party in the USA or the Conservative Party of the UK)
[Later note on Tuesday morning: Everything seems to be running fine again.]
I have been intermittent connection problems over the last couple of days. The cause seems to be my ISP. I’m investigating the matter. It’s meant that most of today was taken up with running tests and checking with both my server supplier in the USA and my ISP, BigPond, here in Melbourne on possible causes. I will be sending the ISP traceroutes shortly.
I have just commissioned a coder to build the new iLOVEprodos.COM (“iLp”) online shopping system.
This will be phase one, consisting of an easy-to-use shopping system to help raise some funds for projects.
The products and services of iLp will be advertised across nearly all PRODOS project sites.
I’m expecting completion of work in about 5 weeks.
I have commissioned a coder to extend some of the functionality of the Web Editor, allowing the Web Editor to edit CPL profiles.
The new functions should be available within 7 days.
[Later note: This project will take a few more days to complete.]
Once they’re done I will be able to start getting CPL Applicants online.
Tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon I have an appointment with an audio technician from 3SSR – the Swinburne University radio station – to get some advice on some of the technology and possible scripting that might be needed for going to the next step with the Rational Voice project.
My wife and I attended the Kingston-Heath liberal party branch meeting this evening. We are both members of the Richmond South branch.
The President of the Kingston-Heath branch is Tim Warner who is a supporter of both the Discover Capitalism™ and Free Market Roundtable projects.
Dr Anna Blainey also attended. She’s not a Party member.
