But for goodness' sake, can we take the date, now >1 week in the past, off the placeholder page? Just put "closed for remodeling" or something.
I know it's been said many times before - we are all volunteers. Joe does IT. Since Joe is the only one who has volunteered to do that, it's up to when he can get it done. (Insert many times before mentioned plug for volunteer help here.) Normally things go pretty well but life takes precedence over hobby as I'm sure you all know. Joe is buried and will fix the store ASAP.
I am a stickler for detail and so I don't like to see things that aren't "right" when they could be, on the other hand it can't be because Joe is busy existing so we understand. On behalf of AMSAT I apologize for any grief but I ask you all to understand as well.
In the meantime the date really is kind of irrelevant, while I agree it would be nice for it to say something meaningful the fact that the store is closed remains the same. Kinda like going to a shop where the sign says "Will Return at 1PM" and it's 1:30 PM so what do you do? Wait, or come back later... cursing the sign won't get you inside. But wait! In this case you have an alternative, please just call Martha. Unless you were just planning on browsing, she can get you whatever you wanted from the store. She does it anyway, when you order online.
