Um, it's 7:41 P.M. central time on July 17, and I can't seem to log into the AC website. Is anyone else experiencing this same problem?

Me too. Got "Account Suspended, Contact Billing Department". Thier alternate address does not work either.

I believe they're doing some kind of upgrade, either to the software or to the server.

If you missed the announcement yesterday, we're switching to a more powerful server. Thats why we're having the outage.

Ignore the billing thing - the bills are paid.

So, while we're waiting for the AC to come back on line.

Who makes the best reciept for tarring a haversack and what do you put into it so your tin cup (or canteen) dosen't rust and you hat doesn't stand erect???

Sorry, all the NCO's in my unit are dead and I forgot there was a search function.

:rolleyes:

"Goodnight Gracie"

Pay attention, class: It's "I" before "E", except after "C".
Just another example of the less than 5%'ers being unable to spell or drill properly. ;)

Receipt for haversack tar: Take one large, dead dinosaur. Immerse in slimy ooze for several hundred centuries. Heat til mixture is smooth. Dunk haversack into mixture. Allow to dry thoroughly before using in the field.

Best way to keep your tin cup/canteen from rusting: Become a Hardkewl. They never use them, anyway. Pristine is as pristine does. Do not remove the price tag, so everyone can see how much you paid for it.

How to keep your forage cap from standing erect: Either stop foraging for Viagra with it, or wear it on your head like you're supposed to instead of that "other" place, at least when you're near attractive women.

The reason all your NCO's are dead: Look who they had to try to train. Most likely, they all jumped in the officers' latrine and committed "sewercide".

What's a search function?

Actually the word y'all are looking for is RECIPE, not receipt. A receipt is what you get at walmart after paying for stuff. A recipe is a list of ingredients for creating a product.

Dam_n, that was funny. I do have one question. What is the most authentic dinosaur? And, someone besides me recognizes the 19th century use of the word "Receipt."

PS Hardkews don't have to drill. They never leave their keyboards.

Why grumpy I still have my receipt for my receipt book on cooking bubble and squeek (that should get some interesting replies) :-)

Bubble and Squeak, you say? A nice way to start your morning out in the field. Also nicknames for my two cats.

Probably a Sgt. Major who committed sewercide and has been stewing in the ooze for a few hundred centuries.

Ah, but you forget that most onerous subgroup of the hardkewl: The Poser. He must be seen, and seen often, or all is for naught!

Careful Doc.

That dinosaur haversack stuff will explode right on your back. Could even explode right here on the screen.

Sez so in my receipt book.

Hallo!

"And, someone besides me recognizes the 19th century use of the word 'Receipt.'"

My grandmother (1906-1977) used "receipt."

And on the flip side, which is the most farby dinosaur - the penguin or the ostrich?

I think cassowaries are way overrepresented in the hobby. Passerines are way more PEC.

My vote goes to the collared lizards used in 1950s-1960s sci-fi movies.

Can't argue with that in a modern sense, but in the Civil War a "receipt" was how "recipe" is spelled today, so yes, Grumpy was correct in a reenactor-speaking type of way.

And he has an incorrect number of stitches per inch.

We won't even talk about the anachronistic materials and construction methods.

That's why he's here now: No self repecting tar pit would take him.

That's understandable, but wasn't the original post mocking noob reenactors? So unless they are historical language majors they wouldn't know that word is the correct usage for the time period.

So now you want to actually have instruction and redeeming social value here! Next thing you know, reenactors will be showing signs of improved impressions, book learnin', and bugle/drum call recognition. Oh, the horror of it all!!!!!!!

No, the original post mocked units that don't mentor their new people because basically, all they care about is numbers on the field and; people who, for some reason don't know how to, or are to lazy to use Google or a search function on a website. And, now for the gazillionth time, this has been beaten to death on a forum. Guess why the Mods on the AC forum get cranky? If folks who register there would care to read the "sign up" information, they wouldn't be so angry or, act so stupidly (on their keyboards) when their posts get locked or deleted.

I have the "grumpy" hat on this morning.
