I haven't posted a blog for a while, but that's mostly because things have been pretty quiet behind the scenes here. Our transition to two new servers at the beginning of November went relatively well. We have survived the hordes from slashdot and digg on a couple occasions while maintaining good site responsiveness. With that taken care of, I can start focusing on some of the new features Scott would like to see added to the site.
PC gaming seems to be in a bit of a slump lately. I've never played the Battlefield series, and BF2142 didn't seem like the time to start. Enemy Territory: Quake Wars seems promising, but isn't here yet. A friend of mine got Neverwinter Nights 2, and while he had nothing but praise for the graphics, he felt the gameplay and interface were a big step back from NWN1. On the other hand, we got a Wii on launch day and it's been incredible fun for everybody in the family.
There are still a few lingering issues from the server move. The most visible is that, currently, jazz comments are not immediately visible after they're posted. I'll be looking into that and hope to have it solved quickly.
