Out of the Blue

Today we celebrate the 12th anniversary of this site moving to its own domain, as went live on October 9, 1996. This seems like a good opportunity to offer some thanks. From this side I thank 2 for creating the custom logos that we've resumed displaying, as well as the main logo on which the custom ones are based. I also once again thank Frans, who has been so instrumental in so many things we've done around here for years, and most recently for devoting himself to clearing up some issues on the server side of things and implementing lots of helpful new features. Finally, most importantly, thanks to all of you for your support all these years.

A Dozen Years of Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Quantum Of Solace Game. Includes prizes.
41st Reality.
Link: 16 Game Cliches That Must Be Destroyed.

Ditto to all the well-wishes and well-wishers, this is still the best site on the web.

Even though I don't post very much any more I still come here every day. Keep up the great work guys!

Oh and Frans, the "Preview Message" feature is great. For some reason I don't see most of my posting mistakes until I see them in their final form.
