Good News / Bad
First, the good
It is always nice to receive good news. The
good news is that J.A.I.L. has grown so big that normal emailing services are
stretched thin, or cannot handle the volumes of email J.A.I.L. sends out, and we
are having to go to an industrial email system.
J.A.I.L. has been using dial-up service
to send out its emails, but it was slow and sometimes we are thrown off-line and
cannot tell whether our emails were delivered or not.
Because of this drawback, we decided to
"move up" to DSL service. However, the DSL company we hired has admitted
that they cannot handle the volume of emails we send, and we had to terminate
We are now limping back using our old
Further, we have found that we have to have
at least a DSL level connection in order to network our computers of several
keyboards into one common data base. (This is not possible using dial-up.) The
software is called MS-Exchange.
I have made inquiry as to what we may be in
for in order to support our current volume of sends, and to anticipate our
ever-growing expansion of our outreach. It appears that we are in for
approximately $60 per month, and we are open for other offers to handle our
volume needs. We are very pleased to see J.A.I.L's growth, and anticipate that
our email load will greatly increase with our active operations in the
state of South Dakota.
Now for the bad
We made a mailing last month to all of
our JAILers everywhere that it was September and everyone was due to send
in their $10 support, which, of course, is twice annually. The fact is that in
the last approximate month and a half we have received only a
single donation of $20. Divided by the number of days, this means our daily
support amounted to only 50 cents.
Obviously, our message failed to be
delivered, which draws us back to the point that our email service is
inadequate, and needs to be upgraded.
So, again, I am notifying all JAILers
to send in their $10 support for September, to:

P.O. Box 207

If the Lord has blessed you with the
substance to send more, it is greatly needed. If J.A.I.L. cannot keep
connected to the internet, it will lose its now effective voice. We have sent
out nearly two million emails, and we are a very powerful and influential voice
to this nation. So, folks, get out those check books and write a check in
support of keeping J.A.I.L's voice heard.
As a suggestion, if anyone wishes to assume
this project of keeping J.A.I.L. connected to the internet, it would be a
worthy project. We are talking about $60 a month. God bless.
