Nate. I fixed Java so now I can load chat.
BUT. Chat is so cool. I hope it never leaves. OMG it's cool <3

*Edit*
It stopped working again
So. I'm going to change from google chrome to something else. I'm sick of this.

*Edit edit*
I made main chat pop out, and it worked. PM works fine :D

*Triple edit*
Chatroll won't work now, but PM works perfectly fine.
Maybe I should just give up... >.>

For a minute, I thought Nate meant '4th July'.

I guess 14th November is YWS-Creation day and 4th March is Apollo day?

Hey Nate, this is absolutely random, but I think it would be really neat if there were a flash fiction category for super short stories. Would that be a good idea or no?

I apologize everyone for not doing anything last week. It got really hectic work-wise. Fortunately, I managed to find two awesome employees.

Anyways, the March 4th event is still on, and I'll be sending out a lot of details about it tomorrow. One of the things I'm thinking about doing is having a live screencasting event in which I show how YWS is programmed and put together. Mainly though, it's really just an excuse to put some balloons on the logo ;)

Screencasting sounds exciting -- like a spell! I hope the awesome employees are able to lighten your load a little.

I can't wait. I don't mind you not doing it on time, but the two employee choices are wonderful and shall help make things even more spectacular! The screecast sounds like an awesome idea. I've always beem intrigued by programming languages and was so excited when I learnt we were doing programming as our first IT unit. I also know a bit of html, so I might be able to learn a few extra things from the screencast.

Everyone, this is inexcusable. I apologize profusely for my delays.

Unfortunately, the grand re-opening will be delayed. This past week proved to be more troublesome than I foresaw, but hopefully next week won't be. Hopefully.

I can't thank everyone enough for their extraordinary patience, and I completely understand any and all frustrations. I'm afraid that at the moment, I just can't balance YWS and work. I also promise that I did not give up YWS for Lent!

Of course Nate :) The YWS can hold. And we'll be patient. But remember to observe Lent, too, its always good to turn on a new personal leaf :) Good luck on the following days Nate. :)
