PTO went "live" on 12-02-2001- we're long past our first birthday, but we're glad you found us

Default HisStory Lesson

(Pun intended!)
Wow...Super interesting to see what one person's dream can accomplish for so many others!
I joined the site a few months ago....have to join the bandwagon with others...this site SAVED my sanity!! (what I have left anyway...) Anyways....can't sleep so thought I would check out the history of the site,,,,,,I am so impressed! And so very, very thankful that those of you involved in getting this site up and running persevered (to the point of almost going back to prison??) and made your dream a reality.
You have made HisStory with your generosity!
Great Big HUGS!~

Default Happy Birthday PTO and Thank You Dave!!!!

I can't thank you enough for creating this site. I knew when I found it that it was a Godsend, just didn't realize when I joined that it was 7 years old. Seven is the perfect number, all the more reason I know it was a Godsend for me to find this wonderful family. I do not think I could go through this without the PTO family. You have been my calm in the storm, my refuge from darkness and my shining light to see ahead. Thank you.

I understand that there are a great deal of inmate's families and friends that still do not have their own personal computer, but that day is moving towards an end. In the mean time more places of business, schools, libraries and other locations are providing free internet access every day in which we all can utilize to access information.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Since you are located in California I am going to assume that is the system you are looking for information re: swine flu.

David, I was completely lost one night and had nobody at all to turn to. I was searching online for something to help me and stumbled across this. It took me awhile to register and it is the best thing I could have found. I tell everyone I know in my situation about this site and how much it helps. Thank you so much.

Can anyone tell me why this site said I have to make 15 posts before I can add a web link to my messages? Then once I made 15 and tried to add a web link it then told me I have to make 25 posts before I can add a web link?

This thread is really just here because it is such a deeply important moment in our history. It is NOT a useful spot for getting information or for connecting with other people.

Also, this site does not function "in real time" the way a chat room does- you post a message it might be a few minutes, a few hours or even a day or two before anyone replies and again, this thread is a terrible place for trying to interact.


If you scroll down the Forum Index, you'll surely find a forum that is relevant to your interests and concerns.

Click on the forum title to enter the forum , then click on a thread title to read that thread.
Reply by either typing your reply into the "Quick Reply" box at the bottom of the thread or by clicking on the "Post Reply" button just above the "Quick Reply" box, then click "Post Reply" when you've finished typing.

To create a new thread, look at the top of the thread list in any forum for a button marked "New Thread", click on that and it will open a window where you can give your thread a title and type up what you want to say or ask. When you are done, click near the bottom where it says "Submit New Thread" and your thread will be posted.

If you ever have trouble finding a post you made, go to the upper right corner of the screen and click on your name. This will take you to your profile. Then choose "Statistics", in that screen, click on "Find all post by..." and you'll get a list of all of your posts/threads.

Lastly, for now, if you ever get a message saying that your post or thread has been moved, all you have to do is click on the thread title within that message and you'll go right to the new location of your thread or post.
