A few little changes on the site this week. The secondary menu is over in the left hand sidebar. That opens up some more options for menu use... so I might be tweaking what buttons are up at the top and which options are at the left. The goal is going to be to be a simpler more intuitive set up options for new and less frequent users. I know changes like that aren't always welcomed by our veteran users who are here all the time, but we need to be easier for new folks to get involved with... or eventually it will only be a handful of veteran readers and the authors. And while we like you veteran readers... we want more hits than that. :P
Speaking of hits... you're definitely going to want to check out today's new content. First off, we've got the long awaited Part 3 of E.E. Nalley and Bek D. Corbin's "Road to Whateley" introducing their 2nd Gen characters with the crazy counterpoint tale to Calmari. For those of you who missed out on the confusion, "Road to Whateley" and "'Calimari'" were the integrated stories designed to introduce the 2nd Generation to the readers. Unfortunately, mid-way into the process of releasing the stories, E.E.'s health issues prevented him from being able to successfully work on his parts of the story and Part 2 and 3 were stalled. They managed to push Part 2 through... but finally, with his rapidly improving health, E.E. has dug in and finished this one to get it off the checklist so he can have more fun working with the very active currently planning and writing that is going on. So here it is: Part 3 of "Road to Whateley" now available in the 2nd Generation Stories collection.
And from Elrod, the continuation of Kayda's story, Part 4 of "There's No Place Like Poe" ... which you can find in the Original Timeline section.
Enjoy! And Please remember to comment!

Sorry, everyone, my day is running a little behind. Between this morning's staff meeting, some speaker repairs, and getting my groceries ordered so I can stop wasting money grabbing something from the corner store (where everything is marked up about 120% over the prices at Safeway... which are marked up a good 50-70% over the prices at the placed I'd go shopping if I had time to go grocery shopping). Fortunately, we live in a world where even peoples like me can fill out a little online grocery list and get someone else to bring the stuff to my door. Too bad I mostly resort to buying the cheapest frozen dinner style calories per dollar I can get these days... I really do enjoy cooking and experimenting with different spices and ingredients. I simply don't have the time and budget to do it. On the bright side, the Boston Market frozen dinners were on sale... and while they weren't quite as cheap as the Marie Callender ones, they're generally pretty tasty. And even the Marie Callender ones aren't bad. Could be worse... I could be eating Banquet and Ramen... I've done that...
So... now that its late and I'm rambling on about my crappy meal planning... let me get today's story release announced: it's going to be visible over in the Original Timeline stories, it's by Bek D. Corbin... and its Part 2 of the story "The Final Trump." Enjoy!

Bump in the Night
Had a little bump in the night last night... forums software update made a few little changes that needed to be cleaned up with CSS tweaks. You might see one or two things that don't look right if your browser doesn't automatically update the cached .css files. How do you 'force' that? Well a 'hard' refresh can work, assuming your browser supports the shift+F5 method of clearing the cache for just that site. Clearing your cache completely can also work... but can be a nuissance for other sites you use. This will get you past any odd glitches that result from your browser trying to use old style info with new/altered site code.
For today's new release content, we have some Morpheus and some JG. In the Gen 1 time frame, we have the third (and final) part in Morpheous' "A Little R&R" that wraps up Ribbon and Roulettes' arrivals at WA. And over in Gen 2, a late student arrival integrates a character from JG into the mix "Reinforce: Don't Call Me a Pretty"
Enjoy! Comment! Cause mayhem!
Choose at least 2 of three... :P
