Cade Thacker is raising money for a Ron Paul billboard in Atlanta:
Over 250,000 people will see this per day. We have 3 different locations we are scouting on the Cobb I-75 parking lot between 575 and 285, but depending on how quickly we can raise the money will depend on which option is available to us.
Take a look at the Liberty Billboard and donate if you can.
This is being done purely through Atlanta locals without the approval of the Official Ron Paul Campaign.
I noticed that a lot of my older posts had a comment count of one, even though there were no comments associated with that post in the database. On closer inspection, I found that the
comment_count field in WordPress for table
wp_posts actually had negative numbers for these very posts. I have no idea how this transpired, but it was easily fixed with the following query:
UPDATE wp_posts SET comment_count = 0
WHERE comment_count < 0
Update: Of course, I now have incorrect comment counts on certain posts, so I need to find a fix for this as well.

From LewRockwell: Americans are looking to turn on its head the English celebration of the foiled Gunpowder Plot on Guy Fawkes Night, as a goal to make the largest political donation event in history for one of the greatest anti-statist candidates in history.
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
Today is the day. Ron Paul 2008.
The Northbridge chipset fan has stopped functioning on my Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe. On system startup, the BIOS presents the following message:
*** Warning:Your Computer CHIP Fan Fail or speed too low***
You can also disable this warning message in SETUP
While the motherboard is under warranty, forum discussions indicate that even the replacement fan is likely to fail. A recommended solution is to instead install the Zalman NB47J, which is passively cooled and has no moving parts. It is listed as $4.99 on Newegg.
If you still want to replace the original faulty part from Asus, see the following e-mail:
