Cool PrisonTalk Online is ONLINE (Site's First Post)

I want to take a moment to Welcome everyone to PrisonTalk Online. I am still in the process of adding quite a bit of content to other regions of this website but the community discussion forums area is now fully operational.(less messages & visitors at this point)
In the following months as traffic grows, it is my hope that PrisonTalk Online will begin to fill the gap in communications between all of us in the Prison/er Support System by providing a medium everyone can use at no charge.
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.

David

well David, I would like to be the first on this particular
post to say well done with setting this site up, it really must of taken up a lot of time and effort to do this, I am amazed that there have been over 100 persons viewing this post but not one of them have bothered to reply to it, well guess this is a start and is well deserved for all the time and effort that you have put in it for the good of us all. nice one. well done
and keep up the good work, you deserve it to be a success and I am sure it will be.
Its good that someone cares enough about his fellow mates and other convicts and ex- convicts or prisoners to go to all this trouble. keep up the good work.

Talking PTO Birthday

A quick note nearly a year later!

This is the first post made at Prison Talk Online. It was made via a little Toshiba Protégé' laptop and my cellular phone while in the half-way house. I did most of the technical design work while I was supposed to be looking for a job. To me this was much more important and in the end I was about 10 minutes away from going back to prison for lack of having a job. Honestly, I didn't care all that much as long as I had this baby up and running. Lucky for me I had someone save my rear from the fire at the last second. The marshals arrived but I was covered.

Since this is the actual first post made on PTO, I hope everyone will agree that the official birthday of PTO is December 2nd. We're almost 1 year old now and we have come a long way in that time. I'm proud of our baby!

I don't think it could be called my dream any longer.. (Though I am very proud) Too many other people at play in this one.. More like our "dream" or "baby"

Wow, Four years!

I met PTO before I went in, but barely, David and the rest of our PTO family kept Linda company and supported her while I was gone.

The night I came home, she told me to log on again, and I did, after that well, David, your realizing your dream of PTO has made Linda's and my dream a reality:

No one will have to go through what we did alone.

Happy Birthday PTO! Every life you touch, every fear or pain you ease, every loved ones' heart that you ease the burden from is the reason you are here.

David, it truly has been a long road getting from there to here, it has been a long time, and because of your vision of PTO - and with the help of the PTO family you brought together - all of us know that our time will come!

Patti

Thank you David for showing me a world I never knew existed, people who thought of inmates as human beings who should not be forgotten. Thanks to PTO, I have made friends, inside and out, all over the world.

Now I need a support group for those who are addicted to PTO.
