    Happy birthday, #bulbagarden

    #bulbagarden (the chat) is officially ten years old today. I started it in early March of 2005 - sadly, the exact day is lost to time - so I thought I'd make a note here. I don't really have any impressive speeches or anything, but I would like to say thanks to all the people who have...

    Arcade cleanup

    I was bored, so I went through and cleaned up the arcade high scores. I dealt with two issues: 1) For some reason, sometimes people had their score duplicated (like one dude had his score repeated 200 times). I removed all but one of these scores. 2) Some people had multiple different scores...

    Ben Bernanke confirmed for second term

    Looks like Bernanke was too big to fail. :B (I didn't make that joke up, I wish I had). After all the storm und drang, the confirmation was 70-30, easily breaking a filibuster (the cloture vote was 77-23). Here's a graphical interface showing how the senators voted...

    What ingame team will you use?

    Okay, I don't see a topic for this, but if there is (recently), feel free to tell me x) Anyway, this topic is to list what Pokemon team you're going to use for the storyline. I plan to use Meganium, Heracross, and Miltank - mainly because I've never used those Pokemon in a GS playthrough. x)

    Vermont legalized gay marriage

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090407/ap_on_re_us/gay_marriage_vermont Vermont has become the first state to legalize gay marriage legislatively, despite the governor's attempt to block it. I think this is truly a great day for gay rights.

    We've been having server problems related to a conflict with Bulbapedia and the forums, and we've turned off Bulbapedia until they're resolved. This will hopefully be short.

    i had a random thought

    i was using bulbapedia, and i noticed that, at the bottom, there is a really cool box that links all the other parts of bulbagarden. I was thinking how helpful it might be to have that box further up on the page and more accessible.

    Oil prices hit bear market territory

    Oil dropped to less than $117 a barrel thanks to a strengthening US dollar. That means it has dropped 20% in the last month - the technical definition of a bear market (by contrast, oil rose by 200% in the previous year). Oil has been dropping precipitously for the last month since reaching a...
