You’re a fantastic and loyal and excellent readership, and we love you all (except for performingmonkey. But since some of you have shown up more recently, you may not know about our Other Website, Noise to Signal. Well, it’s about to (*checks watch* in about twenty minutes, in fact) relaunch, with lots of NEW EXCITING fantasticness, and we’re really looking to hit the ground running and get the site back to the way it used to be, with regular well-written content and a strong community of commenters (who don’t have to sit there for half an hour while Movable Type processes their comments). So if you’ve never visited before (or you used to be a reader but since got bored) why not stop by this afternoon and let us know what you think?
The old NTS was getting kind of stale and predictable, so we’ve introduced a wise-cracking four-year-old cousin for Seb, Cappsy’s adorable Chihuahua who wears a different hat every week, and my own rapping grandmother.
Uh?do we have to register again? Can?t it be arranged to have NtS & GnT share a user database?
Yes, you do – although remember that a) There wasn’t a registration system there before, so you don’t have to do it “again” as such – and also you can post comments without registration, it’s just that they’ll have to be approved before appearing. It is a separate site to G&T!
I did consider letting G&T logins work on NTS, and maybe it would have been wise – but… I wanted to emphasise that NTS has its own identity, apart from G&T. Maybe that was the wrong decision in retrospect, but that was the idea.
I want OpenID support really, but I didn’t have time to implement it. It’s on the to-do list – which, amazingly, is actually being worked on for once.
Aww, really? I’m remembering improperly. That’s kind of disappointing that we only managed to upset two people.
Well, three now that we can count James. He must be very upset over my negative Venture reviews, or Seb’s venomous hatred of the upcoming Watchmen film, or the fact that Capps gave The Dark Knight negative five million stars OH WAIT NONE OF THOSE THINGS EVER HAPPENED AND WE HAVENT REALLY MOANED…AT ALL
Well yes, Phil exploding is always fun to watch. And yes it was a bit of fun. Personally I find NtS a very well written site, with many in depth reviews that go waaay beyond a paid writers comments, not only that give a personal reprise, and many I find interesting. And the new update is lovely, but I do miss the large banners.
Why do you use a knife Monkey? To get your winkle out?
