I thought for sure that some of those DDOS'ing pirates had taken upon themselves to forcibly make a statement regarding SH5 and its dumbing down to a console level.

Nah... I've got more faith in Neal's server management skills than that.

I do appreciate that he left the subforum names intact.

What is everybody talking about? Is something wrong?

Got me too! The sad part is I was prepared for it....tomorrow....not realizing I logged on after midnight.

"There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits. "
