In other news:

  • All my NationStates are dead. I missed the 28-day update deadline by 48 minutes, around 02:30. Sorry, yodge - I've restarted only Wibbletrask for now, but if you want me to restart Yojopia, I will.

  • I've pitched an idea to nobuddy69, dashamus, and hempknight for an MMORPG. Details and an opinion meme are to follow. (No, it's not really badger-based.)
