i think there should be a M.A.I.L. store at http://www.cafepress.com. They provide a digital printing & production service - they have everything from coffee mugs & tshirts to baby bibs and underwear. You provide image(s), and tell them how you want the images to appear on the product. They charge a base price for each product - for example, coffee mugs are 11.99. You set the price you want to charge for the item, anything over the base price. When people order from the site, they pay the full amount, and CafePress sends you the remainder (after a delay to account for thier return policy). No other charges - they make what they need from the base prices.

An example is my storefront at http://www.cafeshops.com/maillesmythe.

I for one would LOVE to have a M.A.I.L. stainless travel mug. Especially if it would help the board stay alive.

I'd be happy to help administer this fundraising effort if necessary.

No, you were right the first time...it's referring to maille's tendancy to make us crosseyed. Uber

Not the best of them, but maille jokes are hard! *chuckle* My personal favorite is 'Maillers do it with tools' Uber

BTW, it's http://www.cafePRESS.com

Aderamelech is gonna head the 'get us the funds to continue' show, but I'm more than sure he'd love some help with our CafePress store. If you have experience with it, Kahuna, email Aderamelech about it and he'll probobly approve it. If he does, email me and I'll get you set up Uber

The movie is probably Tombstone

"Hey, look it's the drunk piano player. He's probably so drunk he's seein' double!"

"I have two guns. One fo'ah each of ya."

I had them, but I can't say I still do 8(. I'll keep looking, but I'm getting the nagging feeling they're lost.

It's not absolutely necessary, but having the originals as a template would expidite the process of updating the urls on the images so there's valid stuff now.

The MAIL, or the Wanna? And what would you like to see it on?

Note that dark colored items, such as shirts, aren't currently available because of the process they use - I can make a dark mousepad or sticker though.

Here's a visual representation of all the products available to print on:

it also sounds like it could be part of a movie dialogue, just can't remember what movie.
