Out of the Blue

Getting the Blammo archives back online is taking longer than originally anticipated (at this point I think furn is combining this project with addressing that knotty Unix year bug so they are both fixed in time for 2038). In the meantime, we have popped up a temporary news archive with a bunch of static pages each covering a single day going back to the beginning of September. These are just flat dumps of a day's news page, so not only are they not searchable, but the inserts are all whacked, offering time machine looks at what the popular threads and .plan updates were showing at the time the page was saved, but they will serve as some point of reference while we try to get everything else in order.

Link of the Day: An new era of entertainment is dawning on SimArena. A new nutty music video. Flash required. Thanks To The Game.
Wild Science: Real-Life Cyborg Challenges Reality With Technology. NY Times free registration required. Thanks Jonathan C. Forster.
Media of the Day: There's a new Lord of the Rings movie trailer on Apple's Website. Thanks Joshua and Bagpuss.

It was the second time in as many days (Motor City Online demo available at EA's ftp site, only FilePlanet was listed.)
If you had checked the MCO story again a few hours after it was originally posted, you would have noticed that the EA ftp link (and two other sites) were added as soon as we were aware of them.

Next time you are aware of a new download before it's mirrored on FilePlanet, please don't hesitate to let us know right away, rather than days later. Maybe, with your help, just maybe, we can then reverse this trend that apparently irks you so much.
