Out of the Blue

Today we celebrate the 12th anniversary of this site moving to its own domain, as bluesnews.com 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.

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.

Don't remember if you were banned before, but you are banned now. I'm sure there are forums where your antisemitism is welcome, but this ain't one of them. Bye.

Oh, well in that case, Enahs hates you, also.

(He hates everyone, though, it's nothing personal.)

Ohh no, it is VERY personal that I hate everyone. Why are you trying to downplay my hatred for you people?

Not reading these forums, obviously.

Indeed this is my one and only PC gaming and tech news website and I'm here daily (often many times each day) going through new info, watching new videosifts via links, and more. Blue and his team have been doing a bang up job for more then a decade and I've been a fan since those early days myself.

It's often the first sight I log into in the morning and the last before I go to bed at night, like the many other massive decades-long fans of this website there's simply nothing else as clean, concise and intelligent as bluesnews.

Uber-jaded forum base not withstanding.
