Out of the Blue

Frans made a couple of posts about this yesterday: We are experimenting with a Blue's News game server, which is now online running TrackMania Nations Forever. This racing game may seem an unusual choice at first, so this post outlines the process behind this decision. This post describes how to get the free game client and access the server, which is located in California (the Blue Tower is in New York, but the web server is on the west coast as well). If you play you will likely run into Frans and/or myself on occasion, which will provide differing levels of competition, as Frans is a veteran driver, and I am a hopeless newb. I've been surprised how much I am enjoying the game, however, as the time trials remind me of one aspect of Motor City Online (R.I.P.).
