12-20-10 Squeezeballs and Silver Spoons must go the way of paper boys. Now it's time for another year of Wok talismans.
12-19-10 The Twilight Development council is petitioning to turn Ursula's old warehouse space into some sort of flea market or collection of shops. There may be a few days of paperwork and cleanup before the space is ready, though.
12-12-10 It's time for the final showdown with Ursula. Time to show those stuffed animals who's boss!
12-12-10 We had some maintenance earlier. Things seem clear, but if you see any errors or unusual behavior, please let me know.
12-11-10 New chat features! Chat will tell you if someone else sends you a message, buff, or trade request. (This is just notification -- you still have to load a main page to actually receive the buff, or an item from a message.)
12-05-10 Uh-oh! It looks like Ursula's gifts was a front for a villainous attempt to take over the casinos. There's evil animatronic toys to fight, all week long!

10-20-10 Psions now get to have 1 aura every 6 levels, instead of the 1:8 that other classes get.

09-30-10 (original version) New item of the month, with (insert Scottish joke here).
09-25-10 Retcon! Retcon is here! Twilight has gone beyond beta, and into uh, gamma, or something. To get started, talk to Rand about your next quest. Time to fight the Mick!
09-25-10 Sugar has received the same treatment as caffeine. No notable exceptions, just a wider range around the average returns.

08-02-10 Many more pages in the game will now recognize that you have a pending message and alert you to this fact. (A few still do not for technical reasons, but most do.)
07-31-10 August's majestic Item of the Month is in the wok.
07-31-10 The City of Lost Robots zone is a bit less challenging than before, and computer parts will be a bit easier to come by.
07-21-10: On the heels of all that good stuff ... the jetpack and VHF-1 fighter (and future flying gadgets) require the Passable Pilot skill to operate.
07-21-10: Somerset has a new beginner-friendly zone, which collapses with 2 other easy zones into a subzone once you hit level 3--don't be surprised by the locations shuffling.

06-20-10 Two new items in the criminology lab, courtesy of Gwen Chen and Leyonne MacDuff, respectively.
06-19-10 Changed some back-end things on caffeine and sugar, most of which shouldn't be noticeable. The popup display is a little more forthcoming now about fullness, and the use things page differentiates the two.
05-31-10 N instances of June's Item of the Month are available in the Wok of Stars, for various values of N. (You'll see.)
Thirdly, there's a little /whois update for chat.
