Ew...

I just have one request for those of you that get on cross-country flights: please shower first. I'm begging you. I'm not kidding either. You may not be able to smell yourself, but I can. For the love of god, just take a shower.

You've Got Sodium!

I'm currently watching Super Size Me and among the disturbing facts it brings up (oh, and there are many), it mentions that Sodexho is one of the low-bid providers of food to the children of this country. Oh really? Sodexho is also the food provider for the cafeterias at AOL, my former employer.

I'm a big fan of soup (and I eat like a bird) so I'd check the offerings on most days during the week. The average (and I'm not kidding) sodium content listed on the nutritional cards for each soup was around 1800mg per serving. Per serving. Let me say that again. Per serving. Average. Yes, Virginia. That means some were higher. A lot higher.

What's the USDA recommended daily allowance? 2400mg. So they were giving us pretty damn close to our entire daily allowance for a single cup of soup. It's not like this was a rare occurance. This was the norm. What are they trying to do? Kill us?

Holy high blood pressure, batman!

1.0 Beta 1 Released

Pushed the 1.0beta1 bits to the ftp site about 4pm EST. It's now our new "stable build" so that people will download it instead of the (year old) 0.8.4. Hopefully we're not too far from 1.0 final. The end is in sight.

Kudos to everyone in the community for getting us to this point, and beyond. Your efforts do not go unnoticed.

Where's beta?

We noticed a late-addition somewhere, somehow caused IFRAMEs to show up in global history, so we're holding off beta until we can get it resolved. Soon, I promise. We really want to get this updated version out to the masses.
