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.

    Right now, I think Thompson is the best of a bad lot.

    Am I nuts?

    Is all the Quinn hate from the left sourced from her flip flopping on term limits? Surely not. That seems pretty conventional political back-scratching by NYC standards. What other liberal sacred cow has she stuck her dick into to get them all frothy? On a related note, it's kind of amusing to see the NY Times endorsement mean jack shit.

    I was at a political thing last night, or at least a thing with a lot of politicos, and they all said 1) it's a term limit repeal backlash; 2) the libs just feel it is finally their time; 3) she was a lousy candidate with no rationale beyond "It's my turn."

    Her accent.

    She sounds like Jackie Gleason minus the charm.

    That survey just became the definitive research paper on the limits of democracy.

    I was standing on the subway and a cop made me move away from the door in an uncrowded train so he could stand by the door. I was irritated by this and other passengers looked confused as well. My girlfriend stood up for him and said all cops stand by the door. This is true I do see them standing by the doors, but, come on, it was a practically empty train.
