Yes, it is quite obvious that it is not maintained because there are several formatting problems. I still use the classic style anyway, but the moderation button is no longer shown at the bottom of the page unless you allow to run scripts. This also makes the story day navigation at the bottom of the front page go away.

How about fixing it so that I do not have to turn on JavaScript just to moderate? In the past couple of weeks I noticed that I have to turn it on in order to moderate. The result? I don't moderate.

I prefer the old style discussion system because it didn't use JavaScript and I still don't want to use it. Thanks!

Now, we're happy to announce that all of the GWT source code is available, including the Java to JavaScript compiler and the debugging browser, under the Apache 2.0 license. If you'd like to see how we pulled off letting you avoid dealing with nasty browser quirks, you should take a look. More importantly, we're running this like a true open source project now: we'll be developing GWT completely in the open, as per our project charter. More info on the GWT blog"

I see lots of random features and some great vision, but that does not translate into great products." He also said that he'd use a Mac if he didn't work for MS. Vista may have changed his mind about security , but will he stick with it after his retirement at the end of the year?

My Wii has managed to boot uClinux and I've laid the path out for other hackers to continue. Here's some instructions on how to get your Wii running your own code. Instructions: 1) Run DNS server and point shop to local Apache server 2) Run Apache server with index.tmd added as an index. 3) Place TMD file, which is not being distributed at the moment, in server root. 4) Use your DNS server on the Wii internet settings section. 5) Go to the Wii shop. 6) A channel will be added that boots your custom content.bin 7) Profit. Don't ask me for the TMD file, I'm not sending it around as I don't know the legalities of this. uClinux works fine and I've even got a USB keyboard working. The next step is to get drivers for the Wii which isn't my area so I'm going to be leaving the Linux train here. Later, Hexxeh"
