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 had braces when I was a freshman in high school. I only had them for about 9 months and got them out but when they took them out they put a permanent retainer on the back of my bottom front teeth. I didn't even ask about it then, I guess I just wasn't thinking very far ahead at that time in my life but apparently I'm supposed to have this thing in my mouth forever. It bothered me at first but 9 years or so later I'm 23 and the wire part of the retainer just snapped as I was eating a bagel. I've already made an appointment with the dentist to get it fixed and whatnot so that's not a problem but I'm wondering if there's anyone else here with one of these who's had more experience with them. Is it a common thing for these to break and need to be repaired? Am I going to be checking in to the dentist every decade or so for rebuild?
