New entry Mar 20
Network speeding up
I'm switching the connection over to a new, shiny 10X faster network because of all the load. There might be bits of downtime as your boxes learn new addresses and things. Should be brief. Let me know of any prolonged outages you see.
Preditors & Editors Changeover
With the very sad passing of Dave Kuzminski, who ran P&E, I've taken over the P&E duties. Lots of what I hope are improvements; check it out at pred-ed.com.

How Many Crits Can the Critters Ship, if the Critters Ship out Crits?
Recent # of crits per story. If you see one that looks lonely from this week, feel free to, y'know, have a look at it. (How lonely is lonely? Well, 15-20 crits is about average, so anything less is "below average".)
