News: Long time no update...
Posted by: Admin on Monday, September 26, 2005 - 08:43 PM
Site News Well, it has been a while since I posted some 'news'. Added a bunch of new tokens - a total of 1443 online. Of all the tokens I have acquired recenly, the best are probably the NY630C, NY630Dc, NY630G, NY630K, and NY630O.

I am still working on the vecturist.com website, which, with any luck, I'll have online soon.

Site News I added about 50 new tokens from Iowa. This means that I have 1351 tokens online!

Not much else new. Heading down to Washington, DC next week for a conference, then down to New York City for a wedding.

News: Yes, I am still alive!
Posted by: Admin on Saturday, July 16, 2005 - 07:51 PM
Site News Yes, I am still alive!

I disabled the forums because I do not have the time to patch up the security holes. Not sure if I will have time to patch them up, and get them online. I'll try though.

I have 1308 Tokens online. Check them out!

Thanks to everyone who has sent me email recently. Not a whole lot new. I had my 250 gig Maxtor drive crash (again). That is why there was downtime for the website. I am looking to buy a new Dell to host this site. Once I do, I'll migrate over to the new system, and try to add some new features.

Sorry - not real talkative tonight. Sitting out on the back porch, having a nice cold one.

News: Not much new...
Posted by: Admin on Tuesday, May 31, 2005 - 09:07 PM
Site News Not a many new tokens recently, although I should have a few dozen arriving soon.

I did add 3 new error tokens from New York City. The first was an unpunched NY630AO, the second was an unpunched NY630AS, and the third was an Off-center Y NY630AS.

I think I still have a few unpunched NY630AP tokens if anyone is interested in trading.

News: 1278 Tokens online
Posted by: Admin on Tuesday, May 24, 2005 - 01:48 AM
Site News Well, I have 1279 Tokens online! I just acquired 2 new error tokens from NYC. One is an unpunched 16mm token, the other is an unpunched 22mm token. I'll try to get scans of them up online sometime this week. Thanks to Steve from NY for these!

I am going to try to start rewriting a lot of this site next week. There is a lot of code clean up that I need to do before I can move the site to it's new home. I probably have a good 2 weeks (80 hours) of work to do before I can move the site to it's new Linux box.

I am still working on the vecturist.com website. I want to put up information about the AVA there.

I was curious, so I checked my google page rank. I currently have a google page rank of 3. The google page rank ranges from 0 through 10. Sites with page rank of 10 include sites like google.com and yahoo.com. I suppose that a page rank of 3 is good considering that I have only had this site online for less than a year!

Well, it is almost 2am, and I probably should get some sleep...

News: site updates
Posted by: Admin on Monday, May 16, 2005 - 10:32 PM
Site News I now have 1249 Tokens Online! I still have a bunch to go too...

I received 78 tokens from Marilynn in Kentucky. None of them are transportation tokens, but there are some coal, tax, arcade, and good-fors. There are a bunch of duplicates that I would be willing to trade. I'll try to scan them in sometime 'soon' for all to enjoy.

I bought a few hundred random tokens from eBay as well. Mostly arcade, carwash, parking, and other misc tokens. At $0.02 each, they were hard to pass up.

Sent a hundred or so tokens out to people in the mail recently - either trading to AVA members, or 'freebies' to my newest exonumist.com members.

Well, that's all for now.

News: Back from vacation
Posted by: Admin on Monday, May 02, 2005 - 10:46 PM
Site News Well, I am back from my vacation. The wife and I spent a week down in NYC, while the boy was off sunning himself in Aruba for spring break. (Somehow I feel as though he got the better vacation.)

While in New York City, we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The New York Transit Museum. The transit museum is located in an old subway station in Brooklyn. There are old restored subway cars that you can venture into, as well as a wealth of information about the building of the New York subway system. It was actually quite a lot of fun.

We had some very good food while we were down there as well. Most notably: Nocello's, and The Butterfly Grill. Of course, what trip to New York is complete without a stop at Carnegie Deli - home of the world's best corned beef and pastrami.

I added a bunch of new traders and a few new tokens last week. I still have a box of stuff to go through. Rik from dutchtokens.com sent me a few hundred tokens from the Netherlands for my collection.

Unfortunately, because I just got back from a week long vacation, I have piles of things to do at work. So, I probably will not have time to make any updates to the site for a few weeks...

News: A few new tokens, and a few traders...
Posted by: Admin on Thursday, April 07, 2005 - 11:55 PM
Site News I added 8 new tokens, and 2 more traders tonight. Today's tokens thanks to AVA member Ed V.

Heading down to New York City tomorrow after work with the guys. We finally all managed to get permission from the wives/girlfriends to take off for the weekend. It should be a lot of fun, and no, I will not be checking email, so don't waste your time mailing me...;-)

Well, now off to pack for the trip.

News: a few new tokens added, Forums online
Posted by: Admin on Monday, April 04, 2005 - 11:10 PM
Site News 4 more tokens added tonight. Added a nice KY480M (and a few duplicates for the trade list), thanks to Marilyn T. She also sent me 5 other tokens (sales tax, game, and 2 others), which I will try to scan and post up in the forums - perhaps someone can help me identify them, so that I can pay her what they are worth. The other 3 tokens are from Little Falls, Minnesota, thanks again to Dennis P. 7 tokens from the trade list where sent off to Alan (chickengrabber).

At least one of you have noticed that the Forums are back online. A slight snafu with cookies was causing some issues to my Internet Explorer friends. I also fixed the file attachment problem. You can attach up to 4 images to every post.

If there is anything you would like added to this site, please feel free to email me.

It's past 11:00, and I still have a dozen emails to answer. Luckily, I have my good friend Bud Powell and Dos Equis to keep be going.

News: 1169 Tokens online, forums working (again)
Posted by: Admin on Saturday, April 02, 2005 - 07:09 PM
Site News Well, I have 1169 tokens online. Latest trades thanks to AVA members Alan C., Dennis P., and Joe S. I also added a few new traders to my trade list.

I think I have the issues with the forums resolved. This effected all users of Internet Exploder. Firefox users (such as myself), were not effected. I plan to move to different forum software sometime this month. I need to order a few new Dell Computers for the webserver and Forums. I am planning on separating them, and running the exonumist website from one, and the forums from another. Eventually, when I get time, I will do something useful with the vecturist.com domain - for now, there is simply not enough time...:-(

Not much else new. Trying to plan a trip to New York City for next weekend with 'the guys'.
