Out of the Blue

Well I'm sorry to say the BlueTower is black thanks to Sandy. We lost power overnight, and I don't have an estimate of when to expect it to return, though historically they tend to be pretty quick at restoring electricity after outages here. Otherwise we are fine, and hope all the rest of you are equally safe. I don't picture being able to update the site through my phone, so I'm afraid I'm offline for the time being. Apologies, hopefully this will all be sorted soon enough.

At some point Bluenews should get a redesign... at least drop all the nested tables :).

I'll take this opportunity to say thanks for Blues! The best gaming site on the web by far.

Nice to hear people are safe.

Yup, exactly.

10 years of the best gaming content on the web, bar-none.

Thanks blue! Now that you're down for the first time I remember, I realize how much I love this site!

Good luck east coasters!

BTW, looks like front page is down except for the 1 entry...

There is actually more to the front page than just today's Out of the Blue, you just need to scroll down to see it. This happens because the left navigation bar and "today's" news are within the same table. "Yesterday's" news is in another table below the left nav... so if "today's" news is shorter than the left nav, the page requires some extra scrolling.

At some point Bluenews should get a redesign... at least drop all the nested tables :).

Good Luck and Best Wishes. I hope the inconveniences are remediated as soon as possible.

He never tells us what he plays other than Guitar Hero - but hopefully he has a generator hooked up to his gaming rig and can catchup a bit!

He doesn't show logged into steam in months. We might need an intervention, once the power returns.

On a side note, is there an easier way to see what threads have new posts in them? A way that doesn't involve me getting lots of email?

No wonder they don't have power. 6 feet of seawater and electric transformers, yeah, that's not a good mix.

Yeah, I know that station. It's close to residential parts of Alphabet City. Luckily nobody got fried.

It's pretty big and fixing it might take a while.

Wow. YouTube was acting weird earlier. I assume it is related to Sandy!
Youtube is actually down for me, our ISP's cache(TS1) and direct service to youtube aren't loading at all.
