I have been approached by someone who is not only going to fix the code, but will also help me handle at least some of the day-to-day administration. This is pro bono so I don't have a date for when it will be complete, but at that time we will do a soft-relaunch with the updated software. Until that time, +4 will remain open unless/till we get a nastyspam, and then it will go read-only either for a short time or until improvements are complete.
For when read-only mode kicks in, here are some temporary refugee** locations set up by others:
Ever since I gave Tiki advice on getting a new desktop, I've been wanting to share my experience with how my own build went, and I figure I ought to do that already.
I think I got a pretty solid design here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZWHvRB Portability since I want to lug it between my parent's houses, decent in most areas of performance, very solid power supply, damage resistant motherboard. Unfortunately I hadn't ordered anything online before, and asked my mom for help. After some confusion with credit cards, we ended up going with a different case, this one to be exact: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-sstps07b
Don't know how well my first choice would have done, but I'm having some issues with the one I went with. There's two fans on the case, but the connectors won't hook up directly to the power supply, and the motherboard only has one fan connector. This leads to some overheating problems that aren't helped be the generally cramped nature of the case of the thick cables used the power supply taking up so much space - thankfully most of them were taken out since it's modular, but that's probably why they're so thick. Not to mention the door over the intake that I need to remember to open whenever I set the computer down.
Not as bad as long as I don't run too much as once, brush the dust off the intake filters and keep the door over it open. I'll have to see if removing the dust lets me get past that one level of Quantum Conundrum (Road to higher Learning) that's been making my machine crash by the time I reach the end. Other than that, performance it pretty good. Windows 8 in nicer than Vista but I don't like what it's done to Search, I like having the pane and being able to use advanced search without going to a separate window. Backing things up weekly to the other hard drive is nice.
In addition to looking for a way to hook up both fans, I'll want to see if I can put the solid state hard drive in a removable case and just move that between similarly built machines instead of moving the whole machine around.
One of the best TPS I've ever played, I've been playing this in the last 10 years and this game never gets old. It's amazing all the different things you can do and the different game modes you can play.

Between Ol’ 45’s desire to use nukes, North Korea’s launching of missiles, and the rolling back of environmental regulations, we are basically one disaster away from living in a goddamned wasteland. So…yeah.
It goes like this: you post a photo of some part of the world, and others will try and guess the country. Nature is preferable, but cities are okay, I guess. If 5 posts get it wrong, someone else can post another photo.
Naturally, I'll go first. Hint: it's somewhere in Europe.
