holy pink and yellow spandex batman!

City of Heroes launched publically today, much to the fanfair of it’s players. Never have I bore witness to such a smooth launch. We’ll see if the NCSoft billing servers hold up as well as everything else did so far. Thread In Progress <– edit (10/3/07) I actually had forums when I wrote this. durrrr

Rebecca Romijn (now single) […]

postNuke, while robust, is not the content manager that I would have liked. Having a hojillion options at your disposal when all you really needed is something to dump nicely formated text is just silly. I’ll rip the phpBB forums out sometime next week and restore the proper functionality to them. Oh, and pretty up […]
