Roundup of Unusual Size: Ben Abraham, you have broken my digital heart.

Sssso not much got done this weekend, regarding layout redesign and updating feeds and such like. Actually, completely unrelated to my Internet Marriage and subsequent Internet Divorce (sniffle), I came down with a sudden case of intense pain. Which is totally a legitimate medical condition; you can look it up.

Anyway, a couple days of nausea and hibernation later, I’m back. It’s all good because yesterday I was supposed to announce that the ROUSes will be taking Sundays off anyway, since it’s such a slow news day. Still debating what to fill the gap with, but as I’m going to be gone in New Jersey this weekend (hello, Eric) at a games studies conference, that will just… have to be looked at later. Trust me, you’ll be the first ones to know.
