The site will be down for up to three hours today as we flip the switch over to the new design. Bear with us…thanks.

Pins and needles over here. Just so you know.
Change is scary .... someone hold me!
Paging Mr. DeMille . . .
Yo, thelarmis, drumroll please!
Just to be clear, it's not going to be "down" as in "not working" (knock on wood). Rather, it will be a little bit messy and/or slow for a while.
Starting ... NOW!
I really hope no one with the user name "What?" signs on in the next hour!
(Sorry...The Tick reference. What! Hey! What! Hey!)
My theory is that the site is being optimized for the hard of hearing.
Oh, god, is this what it looks like, or is this just temporary?
So busy-looking with the red time code there like that.
It's A-Rod's fault.
Ooh ooh! I want to post a wacky comment too!
What's the name of the man on second.
Ok, I'm going to flip the switch here in a minute. It will still be semi-broken for maybe an hour, so be patient with the new look for a little bit.
I don't know...he's on third and I don't give a damn.
I hope we still have comment numbers. Otherwise it'll be harder to respond in game threads.
Rats, first attempt didn't work. Will need another 15 minutes to fix it, then try again.
[1:11pm] Ken, knowing that you've had a big hand in this makes me feel very comfortable with the whole thing.
[1:15pm] I'm sure they'd be easy to add in - and if not, we can adapt, right? ;)
Where were you when the switch was flipped?
"With a flick of the switch ...."
"Let there be Banter," he said, and there was, and it was good.
Getting ready to try again in a minute or three...
OK, here we are...a few things still broken...
Wow, looks good so far.
Got a new post up. And Ken still has some bugs to work out. But we're up and running!
 But do the links work?
I like this a lot...looks fresh and clean!
Sidebar needs cleaning up.
Ken, you, sir are the mothertrucking MAN
  And a return of bracketed comment linking! This is awesome!
 Indeed. Cool beans AB and Co.!
