After that bad patch GH went through the middle of last year, I'm glad to see that the community has rallied around, and emerged even stronger than ever.

Many examples of generosity, so community spirit, very awesome proposals, much friendship.

Wow!

It is a pleasure to be part of such a positive and vibrant community.

Sorry it is late, but audio version if anyone wants it, had to stop because I hurt my voice  :'(

https://soundcloud.com/user558259308/and-here-we-go


Apologises for any name butchering, and talking in quotes was actually more difficult than I anticipated,
[trying to define them and all] and I abandoned the idea of accents because it just sounded really really wrong haha.

Any all all critique is appreciated

I'm really liking the audio blog posts. I laughed hearing my quote in Tym's voice, its weird to hear my words in a different voice. Thanks Tym![/td][/tr][/table][/td][/tr][/table]

Just listened to the blog, and I like Tym's voice narrating it, don't know why I haven't listened to the audio version before, and I also liked the many topics it covered.

I had hundreds of those! I really wish I knew where they all went.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Thank you kindly :) Means alot

Any critiquing is more than welcome!
unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS)

One thing I would like to ask for in regards to the blog, is an option (or something) to switch the text colour and background colour so that the back ground is white and the text is black, as light text on a black background properly messes with my eyes lol

Someone please tell Tym it's pronounced "jif" not "gif" :p

Wrong or not, I've always followed this philosophy on the acronym.

"Graphics Interchange Format. Graphics. Not Jraphics. #GIF #hardg," wrote Web designer Dan Cederholm.

if saying it gif is wrong, i dont wanna be right

whats even worse is how you are meant to pronouce imgur, that is really ****ed up

Yup, definitely Gif with a G.

That's unfortunate because i love dark backgrouds, that's one of the reasons i never venture around DT, because i couldn't find the option to change the color theme so i gave up cause i can't do black on white, i need a dark background.

Nice entry guys, Thanks Tym for doing the audio, it was great!
Sent, nice entry as always. I know you're worried about quality and such but i think it's perfectly fine but maybe that's just my fanboi speaking lol
