Website Downtime

At some stage during this week there will be some downtime as my webhost moves all the content to a newer and faster server. I've been warned there may be some data loss, which might mean some of the newer members lose their details. I'm backing things up at this end, and until we are up on the new server locking down new memberships.
 
If all goes to plan all you'll notice is that the site becomes unavailable for a few hours/days. The web address and everything else should stay the same.

New Addition: Commenting System

I've finally added a commenting system to the fantods. You'll need to register first, and then log in (bottom menu on the left) to add your comments. I've added the ability to comment on some of the more recent news items. If you follow the 'read more...' link it should be ready to go. I know some of you wanted to post about 'Good People' , so that might be a nice place to start.

Translation of the ZEIT Online Interview!

Before heading to bed last night I posted a link to the ZEIT Online David Foster Wallace interview (in German) along with a request for an English translation...
 
By this morning Stefan had translated the interview and sent it to the fantods for all to read. Thanks, Stefan! {comment}
