Comments Are Always Appreciated

Ahoy SP Pirate Mateys!

Alex here, announcing a new feature of the new SP. Comments! At the bottom of each of these here posts there will be a link where you can play along with us. We always appreciate hearing from everyone, and if something we say strikes a chord, we want to hear it. We’re all about open dialogue, and sharing, and playing well with others.

And eating paste. And running with scissors. Definitely running with scissors.

Ahem. Anyway, please do chime in when the mood strikes you. Carry on.

Welcome In.

We have a new home. Please, wipe your feet. Better yet, everyone please remove your shoes. But do come in.

The very observant among you are no doubt noticing the new look. We’ve moved into the 21st century and are allowing some automated software solutions to take the place of the hand-coded and abacus-aided way we ran the site before.

There’ll still be some dust around the place for the near future, but before you know it we’ll be offering you daily content and plenty of reasons to keep coming back. Frankly, we’re really very excited.

And since I’m here, I’ll make a little announcment. The 6th Annual Austin Bar Crawl went off without a hitch last weekend. We’ll have a recap up just as soon as is humanly possible. It’s my favorite article of the year, and this year should be quite good.

So welcome in, welcome in. We’re glad you’re here.
