I haven’t followed Tan Range in a while. At least they’re going into production. To say that it takes a long time to develop a mine…

I guess they’ve changed their name or else … TRX New York exchange and everything.

yes the jrs have found a profitable way to carry home the water to their benefiet ..

several years ago i exited all gold stocks ..all stocks hit the sell range on an atomatic sell .. i just kept raising that sell order .. and did okay

i think tan range soon could bring forth a double .even a triple . i will probably grab a few shares soon

i read that some disparage sinclair my opinion he is one of the good ones

and has developed some mines and real gold prospects  that will pay well in a couple months as he goes into production,,

What ticks me off is when the officers of some barely surviving junior are being paid exorbitant salaries. Sometimes more is going to the management than to exploration.

A small company was written about recently that had been in business for something like 30 or 40 years without mining a single ounce. The company officers were doing just fine but all the stock holders were getting screwed. I forget how many times they’d done reverse splits. Amazing!

Rick Rule, as clever wordsmith, enjoys harping negatively on the mining stocks as a losing venture. He points out that if all of the Junior Miners together were pooled into Junior Explorer Co as one giant single firm, the company would lose $2 to 8 billion a year. He concludes that miners and explorers are best at finding money in investor pockets and mining it to pay salaries. He said, “Most of the walking dead Juniors, the zombies, are a bunch of liabilities disguised as public companies. Their assets are liabilities; their financials are liabilities; mostly their managements are liabilities.” Their executive compensation packages are also liablilities. Their deposits when in high risk jurisdictions are liabilities. Their entire properties become liabilities when the output is over-committed to the big banks and gold exchange marts. Rule once told the Jackass back in 2007 that the newsletter business has an element of entertainment to it. To which he was told, “Yes possibly, but good solid analysis and writing style make for a better foundation to laugh and hold interest.”

Floridagold re RMB developing quickly as major world currency and things look Worser and Worser for the dollar

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 20:59 on July 21, 2014  

Imo regarding my reversal observations, what is going on is not a coincidence. It has to be the global powers, behind the scenes, changing things around. The global agenda that started after WWII ENDED in 2008.

The USA got screwed when it was determined by the global PTB, back in 1945, that the USA was getting key currency status. England had key currency status before 1945. That status has many advantages, but like in any machine shop, “wherever there is a plus, there is also a minus.

The prime disadvantage is the USA after the foreign war, was able to import goods from other countries at very steep discounts, (a plus) but at the same time we lose businesses and jobs. (a minus)

The other bid disadvantage, constant ongoing trade deficits. Those deficits were settled in GOLD at $35/oz until 1971. After 1971, instead of exporting our gold, their system made us export jobs and industries.

Bottom line. That trend (embezzle the USAs wealth for the have not countries) has ran its course. They took and took and took until that meltdown in ’08. The  final DRAIN. Nothing left to take. The middle class was finished.

It makes sense that the USA is now a “have not” country, and the global master planners finally got it thru their thick heads in 2008, and are now in the process of making some other “have” country or countries, be “blessed” with key currency status to enable THEM to import cheaply, and drive up THEIR deficits.

You could even say globalization (integration) is in reverse. Look at all the separatist movements. Various people and countries seeking independence. Nobody with a brain wants to be merged with some other country that has “baggage”.

Big crowd all of a sudden…

Wow, looks like moving has it’s advantages!

Thanks all for the tips for purslane – I’d heard about it’s nutritional value, but wasn’t ready for eating it yet.

I’ll give it a try.  Also, one of the links you left to Wikipedia showed that purslane is good for conserving soil moisture, something I’d observed, but with no credentials, could not say for certain.

No fear, it’s got hold of my plot this year, we think it came in with a bad batch of compost, as other gardeners have it too. (My patch is in a community garden).

Next time, I’ll harvest and try a sauté!

Also, while I’m here, I read that post from the supposed old timer who is going, with other legions of us, to take back the country.

Well, we’d better get some people on the ballot who can really make a difference.  My battles to get Ron Paul to the ballot in 2008 and again in 2012 showed me how corrupt and entrenched the morlocks who control, at least the Republican party machinery are.  I have no reason to expect anything different from the Dems.  There is a line of hacks and operatives waiting to run for office.  Access to the ballot -names put up for the voters – is strictly controlled.  The salvation of the country will IMO, have to come from  the people themselves, independent from the FedGov.

Something else caught my eye in the posts, folks looking for a PM source.

I bought some one ounce silver dragon bars from Ampex on Ebay a while back.  The shipping charges were small, maybe $5, and they packaged well and delivered quick.

Unfortunately, I have no idea where the silver dragons went once they got to me.

They were on the table for a while, and then they got consumed by the ever-present mess, and now, I think I may have thrown them away with the recycling.

I do a periodic clean-up of all the accumulated stuff on the table – magazines, appeals for donations, things I think I am interested in for the moment., etc.

Regardless, Ampex was good to me, I wish I could treat myself as well.

Finally, THANKS MAYA – love those train pics, I remember them from the days on the other, other site – Dr. whomever, who deleted stuff he didn’t approve of.

Let’s hope this new spot will bring back that old original renegade bunch who struck out from the clutches of the evil Dr. V (?) to have opinions and thoughts aired in the bright desert light.

When Biden looked into Putin’s eyes and saw no soul he must’ve been looking into a mirror. He is a complete scumbag.

We must be the worst, most corrupt nation on the face of the earth. Nary a word mentioned in the gov’t controlled MSM about how the US inadvertently shot down a Korean Airlines passenger jet years ago.

I am so sick of war and conflict around the world, regardless of who initiates. Unbelievable. Like gold manipulation, it just never ends.


BUSH & Putin….Biden & Putin

BIDEN :” I  looked into his eyes and saw he had no soul ”  …Russia is a Creditor Nation now

When we decided to try a Pay site for Rambus after he posted his charts at Goldtent  for many months

We had no idea what would happen . It was an experiment amongst 3 completely inexperienced neophytes

The amount of bandwidth required for the basic set up was miniscule compared to That used by Goldtent

which had archives dating back for several years and 2 million hits a month

Audept and I were just tooling around on the server with no real idea what would come of it

It was just an experiment and we knew there would be no  detriment or influence on the server

So we just went ahead

Hindsight is 20 20 and If we knew what we were about to create would be a permanent site

we would have (should have) broadcast our intentions immediately..


For the first year nothing much really happened…we had maybe 25 members if that

We had a forum that went unused and the amount of bandwidth was negligible


NOW ….I never asked for reimbursement for many monthly fees charged by the 2  host sites

Host Monster in the early years and Lunarpages over the years

for things such as monitoring and licencing fees and domain fees …these were just charged to my card

monthly…one was $9,95 a month another was like $119 every 3 months..I never kept track of all that

and the tentathon never paid for all of that..(with the exception of the latest server migration where they charged it all up front

and in one package)..

…so net net I personally paid probably about $ 400 to 500 over a period of the first 4 years of the tent

No problem..no concern…my choice

I felt this more than compensated for the miniscule bandwith for Rambus Year One Plus

And at that point it was not certain we would even be viable or continue


Yes we set up Rambus on the same server as Goldtent…and we didn’t feel it necessary to discuss it

…We felt It was just an experiment and did not interfere with anybody and didn’t cost

anybody  …we had very little action for over a year….. maybe 25 members .

Then all of a sudden after Rambus made a great call the place stated growing exponentially

because Jim Sinclair joined the site and started promoting Rambus at his seminars

That’s when I sent the infamous email to Todd (and inadvertently to wanka)

The intent was to tell him we will pay our portion of the server costs

Of course we would let you all know what and why,,,but you found out this way instead !

My bad ..

Subject: RE: International
We got to be careful here re Rambus Just you and I know its on the GT serverI think we should pay any increase from Rambus accountdo you think it will be ok to keep this version of word press

and just go with 2 more Gigs ?

or would the new server perhaps be better…even if more expensive


Obviously we were growing  suddenly and were wanting to take responsibility

for our % usage

…the bottom line is Nobody ever paid a red cent for the Rambus portion of the server

when we migrated last May the usage was still about 50:50

but we paid $2200 and the tentathon paid $840 (unused portion from the Jan 2013 donations)

We paid more than our share …and rightly so


in May this year we paid the whole server fee in the expectation it would pay for the whole year

May 2014 to May 2015 for both sites

…We of course fully expected the tent to continue and  theserver  fees  were to be paid 100% by Rambus Chartology

even though  % usage was about 75% Rambus to 25% Goldtent  by then

there was to be NO tentathon to cover this !


Wanka and I discussed this and he insisted we find out the exact server usage and pay accordingly

I agreed…. but then Todd and I discussed it and decided we would cover 100%

so I paid it all…. $3000  ( to be reimbursed by Rambus)

Now of course You have no use for the old server but May thru July Goldtent had the server usage .

So lets summarize here

1…For 1 year plus we developed the Rambus Site and had a miniscule portion of the server usage

2…The site started to use a lot more of the server AND at the same time Goldtent was Increasing server usage

so we migrated to a new server ..at that point the usage was 50 50 ..Rambus Chartology paid $2200 and there was a credit

from the previous period (paid for by the Jan 2013 tentathon) which covered the Balance…so Rambus paid More that 50%

3…Rambus Chartology paid forward the whole server fee for May 2014 to May 2015…of which Goldtent used only 2 months

before being migrated to the oasis

Where is the robbery in all this …

Nowhere that’s where


Its kind of ironic isn’t it…this site is filled with Conservatives who abhor Obama and the Libtards who think

For Profit Enterprises are evil…(Communists in effect)

I of course share this view

BUT now Rambus Chartology is receiving the same attitude !!



We worked very hard and still do to make the site interesting and useful and we get paid for our work

NOBODY here has paid a red cent towards the portions of the server we used

We used a common server during the experimental stage and when the experiment was successful

We openly  paid MORE than our fair share ! (yes OPENLY…obviously from that email our intention was to pay)

Wanka never once during this whole migration process questioned our integrity and intentions

He and Audept and I all worked hand in hand with Lunarpages to achieve a smooth migration


The real reason for the Oasis superceeding the Tent is simple

At some point Audept had a Falling out with Wanka ..

Wanka asked him to do some basic server maintainance and repair

but effectively Audept resigned..and the tent was left with NO webmaster..an untenable situation

I tried to mediate but with limited results

To this day I do not know what the Falling out was all about..but at this point it doesn’t matter


And there you have it Buygold


The net result is You all have a wonderful new site..many old valued members have returned…the site is revitalized

It will thrive I am sure under your guidance with Wanka and Floridagold and Ipso facto

and I am happy to be an Author with no other responsabilities .

That is why I am here posting…that and also to answer any questions about the Evil Pay Site known as Rambus Chartology












In hindsight If We had known we were a viable entity WE would have had  a separate server day one

Hindsite is 20 20 !

I know some will still question our integrity and others (many have already contacted me) will see this was a misunderstanding amongst

basically good folks…


I note that Ment17 is back…wow what a resilient fellow he is

I believe he said it best in a post here yesterday…When you point the finger at somebody there are 3 more fingers pointing back at your heart

All the best

See you at the Oasis
