Out of the Blue

Though it hasn't come up lately, Frans has been working very hard in the background on some further improvements around here. The main focus lately has been to whip the forums into better shape with some new and/or improved functionality, including something we've had a lot of requests for, which is the return of more general forums to handle ongoing conversations outside the realm of the news forum. We expect a roll-out of these improvements today, and you can expect a bit of forum downtime around when that happens.

MOGs, particularly struggling ones, need to start giving away their clients - and lowering their monthly subs wouldn't hurt either.

Ultimately all this (nearly two weeks' work) should make future extensions easier too.

Thank you for your continued efforts.

An "ignore poster" function
No, that is still on my to-do list. This release brings plenty of functional and visual improvements/changes, but even more changes under the hood. Many of those were needed to allow for additional forums where users can start their own new threads, while still keeping the news comments tied to the news stories. The code was also tightened up, centralizing duplicated code in one place (e.g. the nearly identical post and edit forms), squashing a bunch of bugs, and many other little tweaks. Ultimately all this (nearly two weeks' work) should make future extensions easier too.

I second that!

 
There's no place like 127.0.0.1

For anyone interested, Atari is having a 50% off sale. Among other things it makes Champions Online $15, so you'd basically get the client for free if you wanted to try it out for cheap.  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.

Pretty much sums up my experience with etrade and dell.

Does anyone know a good racing game for the PS3? I mean a racer with extra cars, career mode, circuits, etc, but a pure racer. Not the wackiness of Burnout or something.

I'm not super big into racing games, but I have been having a blast with Need for Speed: Shift. It doesn't have Gran Turismo levels of detail and accuracy, but it's definitely towards the opposite end of the spectrum of Burnout. It's got enough cars and customization for my tastes, and if nothing else, it's absolutely the most visceral racer I've ever played.

It's a little bit more of a wait...but sounds like GT5 would be what you're looking for.
