As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
i was walking down a desolate financial street this evening - not past 10pm - when i saw neat stacks of tomorrow's newspapers in front of a newsagent which would not open for another eight hours
it made me think - who reads a physical paper anymore?
to have been written to be edited to be typeset to be printed to be distributed by ten at night, how fresh can tomorrow's news possibly be? or is it worth it to see those delicious critical reviews and political essays in the flesh?
have you abandoned it completely for the digital age of instant, rss fed updates? as-it-happens news, full of typos and bad html code and dodgy copy-paste journalism?
or do you go for the middle ground and grab the free commuter rag on the way home, with it's reuters and associated press and imdb.com sources, sacrificing unique journalism for the most googled articles of the day yet still having the raw nerve to put in a cryptic crossword? like it means something? you horrible, horrible, person?
i only watch the international channel's bolivian news hour at 4am
