Fruit of the loon

Assuming nothing went horribly wrong at the last minute, our new news comment system should be up and running. Our new system was written by Richard Smith, and it uses a modified version of his Chatbear system, much like the Blue Tracker is based on the Webdog codebase. It's not 100% up and running just yet, but posting should be working just fine, and all your old settings should be intact. Currently we don't have the functionality in to change message board settings, but that should be online at some point this weekend, as will the Popular Threads listing on the top of this page (it already works on the comment pages). Those that posted on our old system will notice a number of dramatic changes, and we are now supporting anonymous posting, and through special tags (which are listed on the post a message page), we're also supporting bold, italicized and colored text. It's neat stuff. Like I said, we're still implementing this fully, but we should have non-news message boards up and running early next week. Stay tuned, and by all means, post and let us know what you think!

Link of the Day: The Tomb Raider page on Rotten Tomatoes. There are lots of good quotes here, including, "Highly anticipated, highly disappointing, and patently ridiculous."
Story of the Day: Japan corners the market on square fruit (CNN.com). Thanks to everyone that sent this in.
Bonus Story: Fart-fighting underwear invented (Ananova). Thanks Chris Johnson.
Weird Science:
Fish in 'suspended animation' (BBC News). Thanks antonye.

Hallelujah! This makes me very happy. I never realized how much I enjoyed the message boards until they went missing.

Thank you.
