Daleks are back!

cb writes, Just saw this on Slashdot. The BBC and Terry Nation’s estate finally came to an agreement over using the Daleks in the new Who series. BBC story here. UPDATED: Spelling mistake fixed. (It now reads “BBC” in place of “BBS.”)

    That should end with “BBC story here.”

      I should have spotted that, too. Well, unlike comments, stories can be edited by the authors after they have been posted. As for the story submission preview feature, that should really be taken care of on the Bureau 42 end when we’re evaluating the submissions. (I admit I’ve been getting lazy lately, posting anything that’s on-topic, since about 65% of our submissions are off-topic spam. If anyone’s looking for a good lawyer, we’ve got a few names to not choose.)

        Really? That’s horrible.

        On the other hand, yay, Daleks! : )

          I wonder if they’ll be “enhanced” Daleks?

          Does this mean I have to cancel my planned review of the guy promising me larger erections if I transfer my money to a nude teen lesbian in Nigeria?

      What, you want me to do more actual WORK on the site? :-)

      There’s a lot of stuff that’d be nice to have. Unfortunately, most of it would only come at the cost of rewriting the whole site. If I were gonna do that, it’d almost be easier to start over with something like Nuke. But then the site would lose so much of its unique character. And get h4x0r3d twice a week.

      A story preview feature is just one of many things on the shopping list. Unfortunately, I do this same kind of stuff 50+ hours a week at work, so I don’t want to write still more code on evenings and weekends. Besides, the girlfriend would have me shot.

        No, not really. My primary focus was on the fact that I made a stupid typo, which is why “I’m an idiot” was the main part of the subject.

        I like the site. This seems like a good time to say thank you for making it, and running it, and giving it to all of us. Keep up the good work.
