No doubt you've noticed some changes around here. Yeah, this is has been sometime in the making. We had to enslave an entire wing of the local library to find the nerd-power necessary to get this far. And on top of that, we had to buy majority shares in Jolt Cola to make sure everything launched on time.
This was all Wanye's idea. And when I asked him to help test the site tonight, he just yelled, "IHAVETOGOTOPOKER!"
So I tested it — along with developer boy-genius Jeffu.
And we registered and re-registered on the new sites. Until it was perfect**.
And when we phoned Wanye to tell him we were live, all he had to say from his poker game was, "What the f&*$?! What time is it? Holy crap, it took forever! You poor bastards working through the night..."
This was said in between loud cursing and the sounds of breaking glass.
But as sure as the sun rises, so do we... Ahem. I didn't mean for it to sound like that.
Welcome to the dawn of a new Nation (or Army depending on your timezone).
We'll be rolling out new features (and importing our old content) over the next little while, so stay tuned. In the meantime, register, comment and enjoy the sexy new look.
** I was joking about perfect. It's still something of a work in progress. If you find any bugs, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh yeah, we have real email addresses now.
More on that after I finish this mickey of cough medicine and pass-out in the kitchen.
