02.25.10 VERIZON OUTAGE FINALLY OVER AFTER FOUR DAYS
2600 has become the victim of what is either an example of epic incompetence or sheer malice on the part of Verizon. Whichever it is, we have suffered devastating losses as a result of their inability to restore connectivity to us since severing our Internet connection on Monday. As our website is run at a different facility, we're able to get this information out to the world in this manner. However, all of our email as well as access to vital files necessary for the completion of our Spring issue has been cut off since Monday. In addition, orders on our store and ticket sales to The Next HOPE have been seriously disrupted.

We've expanded our delivery area into Westchester, Staten Island, and northern New Jersey this time! Full details can be found at http://club-mate.us or you can email contact@club-mate.us. Those of you outside this area can see what your options are by visiting http://store.2600.com/clubmate.html.

This is a meeting of the Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchise and it's the last one we know of where the issue of Vornado's proposed demolition of the Hotel Pennsylvania will be addressed.

It took us a while but we've gotten our leftover merchandise together from The Next HOPE and finally thrown it onto our store. We've got a limited supply of t-shirts from the conference in whatever sizes are still left and at a reduced price. We'll even throw in a badge for good measure! (This is all in addition to The Next HOPE DVDs that have been available since early August.)

In addition, we've got more of those Nikola Tesla bills from Serbia that were such a big hit at the conference. Yes, one of the greatest hackers and inventors of all time has money designed in his honor and somehow we've become the main source of these bills for the hacker community. Funny how these things work.

We got an early start this year and we think that's probably best for everyone. In addition to the back issues, we have all kinds of other cool deals, suitable for nearly everyone.

In our continuing efforts to corrupt the youth of the world, we have created hacker t-shirts in some of the smallest possible sizes in order to entice toddlers into the world of hacking at an early age.

New hackers are being born every day and we're happy to be able to help provide suitable attire for them. We've modified our famous blue box shirts to fit six different kid sizes, all the way from one year to the age where your child is likely to be capable of significant mayhem.
