Join me live on The Greenlight Supershow

Greenlightfinal

We're part of a mega livestream on Saturday called The Greenlight Supershow.  I'll be talking about the game and hopefully we'll have some new players from the interwebs joining us to play live.  It should be a lot of fun, and it'd be awesome to see some of the community playing along.

Our slot is 10pm EDT -- click here to get the broadcast time in your local timezone and a calendar invite.

Be sure to swing by... I may even give out a token or two live on the air ;)

Emote support added (/me)

I realized yesterday when wolfhoofs suggested it that I had never actually gotten around to adding emote support.  (Oops :P)  So today I've added a /me command you can use to perform roleplay-type actions in chat.

Example:
/me adds emote support
would be broadcast as :
* Sim9 adds emote support

News sidebar works again

Apparently Twitter, in its infinite wisdom, decided it would be a great idea to remove the feature that lets us display tweets on the sidebar.  Instead they're trying to get everyone to use their ugly widget.  Fsck that.  So I signed up for a free wordpress site, added news syndication to there via my hootsuite account (which I love), and hacked up a javascript reader to pull its RSS.  Hopefully the resulting news pipeline won't be too easy to break.

TLDR: Newsbar should work again and I officially hate twitter now.
