The bill, H.R. 1865, is euphemistically named the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act” (FOSTA), despite the fact that there’s nothing stopping state authorities from punishing sex traffickers and their allies at present and despite the fact that trafficking victims can already sue abusers in civil court. FOSTA’s actual targets are adults consensually engaging in prostitution as well as web platforms that allow user-generated content.
H.R. 1865 creates the new offense of intentional promotion or facilitation of prostitution while using or operating a facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce, such as the internet. A general violation of this offense will be punishable by a sentence of upwards of 10 years.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Missouri), has had bipartisan support in the House from the get-go, despite objections from a wide range of stakeholders, from victims’ advocacy organizations to the U.S. Department of Justice, which has already declared the bill “unconstitutional.”

Maximal Eclipse visible in LawrencevilleThe maximum part of the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close under the horizon. The best time to view the eclipse in Lawrenceville would be around this time.
Since the Moon is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to West-northwest for the best view of the eclipse.
Made my first box joint, not a full box though. The joint on the first try was really loose, The pins were too small I think, re-aligned and made the “kiss” on the blade a bit closer and then made the “fit” of the slot a bit tighter. I think I measured the blade without making sure the tooth was at it’s highest point. I kept forgetting to tighten and un-tighten things as I was setting stuff up.
I need to get what I need to do if things are a bit tight, or loose.
Need to get more .5 by 2.5 inch poplar tomorrow and possibly get over to Woodcraft to pick up some clamps.
Overcast and chilly in the a.m. then by noon it was sunny and highs in the 70s.
Spent the morning putting on the roof rack wasn’t so hard just kind of tedious and I start getting really hot ended up changing into shorts and a thinner shirt.
Over to Bass Pro and I picked up another pair of cameo pants and a belt. I wanted to look at Kayaks but they didn’t seem to have any. Looked around a bit and then went over to TMac for some double credit Monday. Went to Suwanee, got to chat with Beverly and a bit later Ellis and the JeffT both arrived about 2pm. They had some samples from Blue PAnts Brewery in AL that were pretty good.
My late lunch turned into an early evening and then I headed home about 4pm. Only had about 7 nooners.
Messed the rest of the evening watching TV and feeling like it was much later than it was since the time change back to regular time. It’s getting dark at about 5:30 now, shit. By six it was totally dark. It’s a great time
Built my Anet 3D Printer on the weekend of Irma, started on Saturday evening and ending on Monday. Mostly.
Printed two things, the new fan nozzle and a part for the feather robot. Both seemed to have gaps and holes, googled that and got this info.
1. You are under extruding. Raise the extrusion multiplier by at least 5%.
2. Slow down print speed.
3. You have loose belts and excessive play in the printer (the A8 has tons of play it’s really junky but fun). If you don’t add a tensioner to the belts, it’s tough to keep them tight.
4. Raise the temperature to 230. The A8’s temperature probe is off on my unit.
