Volunteers?


Since the "New Look" change mid 2011 - we are still thirsty for feedback but sadly get very little. Can we ask for one or two regular visitors to volunteer to regularly report, mentioning any link or display problems, and Email us with info. Some errors can be hard to track down and so outside help is most useful.

"Gun of the week" has been running for some time - let’s hear from you. Like - not like? Any other suggestions?

Thank you - JPFO Webmaster.

Alerts & "Bounces"
Points to note with the JPFO alert emails.

Alerts can sometimes bounce!


Note - (July 2011) We notice sometimes that out of the thousands of alerts sent out, there can be rather high numbers of "bounces" - on checking with our provider it would seem that now and again an ISP makes some change to their email settings and that can result in non-delivery to those using that ISP.

If it happens to be something like Hotmail, Yahoo or even gmail - then many can be affected temporarily. For those who miss out on one of our sendings, we apologize, but the provider does try to stay ahead of things when they can by making changes in their own settings to reflect ISP changes and so control the bounces, which we like to see as zero!

If in doubt, please check the alerts archive to make sure you have not missed anything. Also, if you get alerts do please open them!

Chris, Webmaster.

Why Join JPFO?


JPFO tries to be an educator by supplying "intellectual ammunition" - the idea being that we provide information for folks to use the best they can, to further the fight against "Gun Control". We are tax exempt and cannot lobby or endorse but, for sure we can give you the fodder you need such that you can do your bit the best way you can. The fight to preserve our 2A is vital.

Researching to find data, writing articles, as well maintaining the site - all takes time and expense and so, help towards keeping this active and vital is essential. We would encourage anyone who finds our efforts worthwhile to become a member, or even donate - it all helps us survive and continue the hard fought battle.

Please dig deep, use the search, explore through our menus - find even old pages and pass them on. Dissemination of material is invaluable.


Burning an .iso file for a DVD

Some suggestions for this process

Windows | Mac | Linux Ubuntu



With the September 2010 launch of JPFO's new film "No Guns for Jews", we are bringing you the option to be able to download a large .iso (image) file, (as well as other formats and depending on your connection speed). The benefit from this is that with suitable software, high quality DVD copies can be burned and so enable (for non commercial use) the wider distribution of this important film.  At a later date we may manage to offer image files for "No Guns for Negroes" and "2A Today for the USA", so quality DVD's of those can be made. To find about about options for downloading the very large files, check out this page.

The process is relatively straightforward and manageable by many but we do not necessarily suggest undertaking this if you are totally unfamiliar or uncertain.  That said a friendly “computer geek” could well help you out!

An example of a free application worth considering is "Active@ ISO Burner 2.1". It is a simple-to-use dialog-style software to burn CD/DVD/Blue Ray ISO images compatible with the ISO 9660 standard. Automated burning is also supported, which is most helpful if settings are not well understood.  There are many other applications out there and those who might consider burning their own DVD's from our image file may well have something installed already.  A few other examples are ...... "NTI Media Maker", "Ashampoo Burning Studio", "Need4DVDBurner" etc.

The two standards for DVD are R plus and R minus — these days most burners will handle either, and it is worthwhile to use good quality media. Much further information on DVD and CD burning can be found via a web search.

How to Burn .ISO in Mac OS X:

Choose "Open Disk Image" to select your .iso file.

It’s an obvious hint for those who are using Mac from ages, but for someone who just migrated from Windows will Google a third party app like Nero or Power ISO to burn .ISO or Image files in Mac OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard. Mac OS X has a inbuilt Disk Utility created by Apple for performing disk-related tasks in Mac OS X. Disk Utility is able to create, convert, compress and encryption of disk images from a wide range of formats read by Disk Utility to .dmg or—for CD/DVD images—.cdr, which is identical to the .iso format. So if you ever need to burn a Image file or .ISO file then simply launch the DiskUtility and perform the following steps.


Choose your required .iso file.
  • Insert a blank disc in your DVD Drive and start Disk Utility.

  • From the File menu, choose Open Disk Image and select the ISO to be burned.


In the list of volumes, you will now see an item representing the ISO file. Select it.


Click the burn button and follow instructions.
  • Click the Burn button and follow the instructions.

 


Burning an image file with Linux Ubuntu:


This default box may come up - it can be closed

The procedure may differ slightly depending on which version of Ubuntu you are using.

1. Insert a blank CD into your burner. A 'CD/DVD Creator' or 'Choose Disc Type' window might pop up. Close this, as we will not be using it.


Find your.iso file and right click on it and select "Write to Disk"

 

2. Look for the downloaded ISO image in the file browser.
3. Right click on the ISO image file and choose 'Write to Disc'.
4. Where it says 'Write disc to', you may have options such as 'File image' as well as your CD drive. Choose your CD drive. Your CD drive may show as something like 'BD-MLT UJ-210S'.

 

5. Select the write speed. If you are burning an Ubuntu Live CD (one that you may want to boot from), it is recommended that you write at the lowest possible speed.

Have your chosen file showing and your DVD burner location.
6. Start the burning process.
7. After burning is completed, verify that your CD contains multiple files and folders and not just the ISO file. This way you will know the process was completed correctly.
