  • Rich Hoffner (17 Jun 2017 2:30pm EDT) : Q. Is it possible to have the missing posts archived? Last time an outage happened, the posts were archived and that cleared up the glitch. Was there a different problem this time?
  • RIch Hoffner (17 Jun 2017 2:27pm EDT) : Error in Log. I have an anniversary cover for DC#4 in the Log for JEFFERSON CITY, but the Log says it is Decommissioning. It is not. Sorry for any inconvenience. Many have sent orders and I have returned them.
  • RIch Hoffner (17 Jun 2017 2:25pm EDT) : I have some skinny that the FDC may go a week earlier. But, Commissioning Committee still lists 7-22-17.
  • esink (16 Jun 2017 11:04pm EDT) : more detailed info on the USS FITZGERALD DDG-62 collision:
  • esink (16 Jun 2017 10:51pm EDT) : Thanks for the info, Neal...a good reminder to send covers soon.
  • esink (16 Jun 2017 10:49pm EDT) : Info about today's USS FITZGERALD collision with a Philippines container ship;
  • Neal Mills (16 Jun 2017 6:20pm EDT) : Noticed today that the Commissioning Committee's web site is now listing July 22, 2017 as the commissioning date for PCU GERALD R. FORD.
  • Rich H (16 Jun 2017 1:42pm EDT) : My bad! Elgin you may be correct and all that data gone, nothing archived between Apr 1 and June 12. Not sure what happened to those posts? Not sure if those posts have crashed or if they are recoverable.

    We should try to get an answer to what happened, if the posts are still recoverable and how we can prevent this in the future?

    Many come aboard and scroll through the posts to learn of new ship cancels. That data seems to be lost for now.
  • Rich H (16 Jun 2017 1:35pm EDT) : Large turnout last night at home of Phil Schreiber for the USS New Jersey Chapter meeting. Thanks Phil for your hospitality and for hosting the Quakers from Pennsylvania! Hundreds of covers changed hands. Thanks to Stew Milstein for supplying a large number of circuit covers and to Howard Tiffner for bringing several boxes of covers for us to "finger" through.
  • Rich H (16 Jun 2017 1:29pm EDT) : There should be an archive of posts somewhere on this site.
  • Thad W. Kaczkowski (15 Jun 2017 2:46pm EDT) : Site is up after a few days down..great. Covers received over the past few days - USS DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER CVN 69 - June 8, 2017 - Unit # and ships name - excellent cancel but date somewhat light, USS SHILOH CG 67 - May 23, 2017 - excellent cancel - Unit # 100149 - no ships name in cancel, USS MILIUS DDG 69 - big messy blob on both covers - terrible, but it was returned.
  • esink (15 Jun 2017 1:38pm EDT) : Thanks, Steve...guess we can no longer see previous postings anywhere, right?
