1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Great excuse for a cocktail party! If it weren't a school night, I'd have my official housewarming.

    I'll have a drink to celebrate.

    The wikipedia page currently has a great piece of tomfoolery. See if you can find it!

    Drinking would have been so much more fun if it were illegal.

    I'm always reminded of the scene from Once Upon a Time in America where the gangsters are holding a mock wake for Prohibition. That, and the final scene in The Untouchables when the reporter asks Kevin Costner's Elliot Ness what he'll do if Prohibition is repealed, and Ness responds, "Guess I'll have a drink."
