Blue, I know you need to make money for advertising, but whats with the multiple video ads on the main page... honestly, two video ads that never stop loading (keep loading new videos) really is enough to adblock the site.

I have been working on the provider to curtail the way these ads reload, as well as the occasional sound blips. I apologize for the issues, but also hope you understand what a struggle it is to make the return on ads work, as in spite of your complaint, we are running fewer ads than most sites.

I do appreciate the honest feedback, and as I say, I am working to try and get what ads we do run to mind their behavior. Do not hesitate to let me know if this does not end up helping.

How cruel.. didn't Blue know he was dead already?

Bad combo... I saw that link somewhere on social media and briefly thought "I thought that happened already," before thinking I must have had him confused with somebody else (I actually posted about it at the time here). I'm getting better at forgetting things all the time.

On some level I guess I'm wallowing a bit in all the recent dead musician news, and was predisposed to accepting another.

I can't believe I've never heard of this. I have it big time.

I had the same reaction. MrsBlue is always getting on me for intimidating people with some sort of glare that I have no intention of giving off. My resting face apparently gives off a very strong "don't fuck with me" vibe.

Wasn't this site blue and gold - the logo at least - way back yonder? And whatever happened to some of those old logos? You bust them out once in a while, Blue.

The name and DICE reference implies a BF type game, but then they reference Medal of Honor and Call of Duty?! Which one is it?

The DICE reference was me.

Blue, I'm curious about why you deleted the Battalion 1944 post.

Because I am incapable of reading, and failed to note the announcement was embargoed. Please pretend this never happened and act surprised tomorrow.

Is there a game called Blow that I don't know of, or did Blue mean to say Braid?

These aren't the 'droids you're looking for.

blue is there any chance you'd be willing to ship your chili? i think a lot of us would be willing to pay for it. the curiosity is killing me!

I keep talking about getting a pressure cooker and doing some canning, but I never have managed to get to that point. Of course to send someone some of this stuff I'd probably need a good legal waiver up front too.

But the recipe is pretty simple... it just cooks a really long time.

I'm not quite sure I understand how an object that large could go unnoticed due to the gravitation effect it must have. Not to mention the occasional blocking out of stars it must cause.

The article begins by stating this was first theorized a century ago based on gravitational effects.

Any score is now achievable (4 points would just be 2 safeties).

Weird brain short circuit there... never mind.

Only if Arizona defeats New England in the big game do I have a chance.
It will be you and me on the tie break if this happens. You have 48 points, I have 49....

That tie-breaker certainly caused confusion. I saw one pick was 4. Besides being maybe a little on the low side, it's actually one of only two scores that are not possible (the other being one). Not sure why they offer invalid options.

Anyway, good luck to those still in the running.

Dacron wrote on Jan 14, 2016, 14:32:
The ads (the video player ones) are now intermittently playing sound at 100% (a pick up truck/suv commercial.) for split seconds with sound disabled in the player. Every 12 seconds or so I hear noise for a split second and can see the speaker icon (in chrome) on the bluesnews tab indicating it's coming from there. It also lags/stutters my browser even in other tabs when it happens.

Okay, that's messed up. Thanks for the report, I will get this taken care of as soon as possible.

I've heard nothing but wonderful things about the game (that is to say it's portrayal and storytelling, the subject matter itself obviously isn't wonderful), but I don't think I could ever set through it.

Hope it does well for the guy.

Same... I can't imagine what it would be like to deal with one's child being ill, so I understand the author's motivation. But the dragon took both my parents, and it's a painful topic I can't see myself intentionally delving into.

I keep getting redirected to bullshit garbage adware sites when accessing Blue's from my iPhone. It started today. Usually takes me 3 tries to actually read the site instead of the browser jumping to an ad for a Kim Kardashian game or "you've maybe won an iPhone 6s!". Been checking the site quite a bit today to see if it's stopped. Nope. Still doing it as of the time of me writing this.

I don't' get them frequently (maybe one a week), but when it does happen, it redirects me an app download on the itunes store.


Been happening on my Galaxy occasionally too, so don't think you Apple guys are special. I have to kill the browser and reload in order to get to Blues when it happens.

I'm very sorry about this. I am told this is being actively addressed and should be stopping, so feel free to tell me if it keeps happening so I can stay on the case.

Oops... pool has a password.
