The drabblecast uses a donations model to support itself and to prevent its message from being compromised.

What's with this?
Couldn't we at least add:

...but we are not incorruptible. We might blush, but we would probably accept a 567 million dollar Energy Department stimulus package.

I have to jump in there and say that i was away for some months and came back and i am flabbergasted by how awesome awe inspiring, how awesome (i say again ) AWESOME all the changes you guys made to the site.

It no longer looks like a mixed up project that obviously started in norms basement/garage/attic (because the kitchen is for loving) into something really snazzy and easily accessible. It makes me so glad to donate money here. Thinking about making/stealing more money to make give. Also by steal i mean pyramid scheme or lottery compared to violent actions towards Kobolds as is my preferred method.

Glad to have you back! Thank ye' kindly, we were pleased with how the new site turned out. It is the time to proselytize and look bona fide doing it! And yes, you have it nailed - rid the whole production of that 'basement'y' feel - easier to trick people in to coming down to the basement that way!

It is not tricking them down that is the problem but making them drink from the dis-used sink that was the drabblecast main page. Also now that i know he was down in a basement rather than in an attic it make me wonder "Whats he building in there?"

Sorry I've been MIA weirdos, I got a promotion and I was drowning in 1 and 0's for a bit (bit. Heh)

Good job all around!

The only thing besides kudos I can say is that when you search a story, the "ads" between the results are visually confusing to me. If they must be popped between story results, at least have more of a visual 'spacer'. It's not so much that I object to their existence, its just I find it hard to scan to see what story I searched for.

I don't see them now. How very strange.

A few days ago I'd run a search and get something that looked like: episode, episode, buy the drabbelcast CD collection, episode


Or did I have a stroke?

You probably used a search criteria that included the Kickstarter to Norm's new CD posting.

Hmm, could the search term also have returned the Merch page?
