Out of the Blue

Another new function is live here, thanks to the ongoing efforts of Frans. We now have the ability to add breaks to stories, so it will no longer be necessary to arbitrarily cut the length of longer posts, as we can now offer a link to read the rest of the story. A few of today's posts already make use of this, providing the chance to offer feedback on this if you are so inspired.

Speaking of feedback, I'll repeat a request for HTML advice from the forums yesterday. We want to make the default instructional text gray in the "post a message" text box for our forums, which we have not been able to work out. If anyone has any insight into how to make this happen, we'd appreciate your help.

That composite image of the galaxy is very nice. Seeing things like that gives me hope, because I can look at it and know that somewhere out there, among countless stars, is a group of individuals even more gullible and dimwitted than video gamers.
