    I’m trying to pay by paypal and I can not.
    It is experiencing an error.
    I used paypal for another purchase in another site and was all right.
    I try again later.

      There’s something screwy going on with my blogs today. Not really sure why yet. Tech support thinks it’s something like a denial of service attack, some bot or other is over-querying something.

  • The link between the APR site and PayPal seems to be screwed up. When I tried to “continue shopping” one of the two sites crashed, it was hard to determine which. Thankfully PayPal preserved the shopping cart and I was able to check out by logging into it directly.

      Just “bought” all three issues from the APR blog posting, and everything went smoothly. I think there was something temporarily screwy going on at the server

    Looks like the Boeing Orbital Bomber is incorrect in the bottom view. The bombs should be showing their topside not bottom as in the other views…

    • Scottlowther

      The bottom view shows the bombs in the correct orientation. However… the deorbit motors were inadvertently left off. Hmmmph.
