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!

Inaug YOUR ation

barack_speech.jpg

So it turns out that this guy is going to be president in two weeks and two days, and there's going to be somewhere between two and four million people hanging out in Washington D.C. to see it happen.

A lot of them will probably be wearing those garish shirts that have pictures of Obama on a pink background surrounded by images of every major civil rights icon imaginable and probably some really saccharine slogan and you'll think it's hideous but then you'll feel kind of guilty because you'll wonder if it's a black thing you don't get.

Some of them, like me, will be staffers who get tickets reserved in the good seats and who get to go to the Staff Ball where Barry will be making an appearance, and where us superior types will hob nob with movers and shakers in Washington. Also Kovak is getting my guest ticket I guess.

If you're going to be one of the people standing in the freezing cold, nipples patriotically erect in salute, you should post here so we can all hang out at some point either on or around the 20th of January.

    God I love that rogue chum so much. (Campaign staffers call anything unofficial "rogue" and shirts, stickers, and other merchandise "chum")

    It's uniformly hideous, sold out of the back of vans or on tables that mysteriously appear on the sidewalk of every Obama event ever, and absurdly ghetto. The best is when they actually have the little rhinestones glued on all over it.

    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.
