|Argon||Connecting to SpinDizzy through your web browser|
Long available but rarely noticed, SpinDizzy can be accessed without a muck client. Although folks often visit via their favorite client on a USB stick if they're not at their home computer, if you find yourself wanting to stop by and your memory stick is someplace other than you are, just go to the SpinDizzy web site and click at the link on the bottom of the navigation bar on the left where it says, "Connect to SpinDizzy through your web browser with this web client."
This will connect you to a Java applet created years ago by someone very clever who's name I can't recall. This will open a real client in your browser. You won't have all your buttons and client based presets, but you'll be able to connect and interact.
So give this a try and see how it works for you!

|Town Hall of the Muck -- Thursday|
As it's been several months I'd like to take the time to call a fresh Town Hall Meeting. The purpose of this is just to give everyone in the community the chance to talk about what Spindizzy is, what it does well, what it does poorly, and get into bigger, argumentative quarrels with the wizards. As always, attendance is a purely voluntary affair, but one of the things which makes Spindizzy strong is the continuing interest and feedback from everyone here, so please share your thoughts. We'll have one meeting for the morning crew and another for the evening shift, and I know the hours aren't quite convenient for our Europe-based residents but we can't quite spend the whole day in these.
Meeting times will be 8 am and then 8 pm (The editor assumes this will be muck time,) on Thursday, 8 February 2007. We'll meet in the Park of the Day, 'park' from anywhere on the muck.

|Coming soon, to a casino near you! Boggle Battle.... Portia vs. Ray!
Join us (date to be announced soon) as we see who has the best boggle
skills. Because it is a casino, after all, the 'ticket' to the IC
event is to place a bet on who will win (Portia or Ray). Those who win
the bet will get money, and those who lose will have to pay up (ICly).
You can even place a bet if you're unable to attend. Of course, if ICly
you are unable to pay up, you may be... paid a visit.
More details soon.
