Continuing my trend of recognising random holidays, today is apparently World Graphic Design Day - celebrating... well, graphic design, obviously. Therefore, we will have to encourage lots of pictures and artwork today. Here's what else we're thinking about:

  • Perhaps in the future, yesterday should forever be known as Newhickey Day. We discussed the Doohickey problems in the comments and came up with a way forward. Mr C put in a good few hours work and lo and behold, the doohickey is back. I will update the wiki with new instructions soon, but essentially it is the same doohickey we know and love. The two main additions are a thread drop down at the top - which selects which thread you can reply to (whilst still seeing other incoming comments), and a quick comment button, which will post to that thread if there is none to reply to in the doohickey already. I'm sure that's as clear as mud, any questions, let us know.
  • Whilst Mr C was busy writing code, others were busy writing great blog posts. Here's a couple of them: Lukeh takes us on a tour of what he loves about the BBC coverage, whilst Scott needs help making a purchasing decision. If you're in the blogging mood, share your links below.
  • In F1 news, well, there was very little news. iSport may be thinking about joining F1, Button is worried that Red Bull are the real threat, and Bernie Ecclestone is still rich.

That'll do it for now. I'm sure there's more to discuss than the few things I have mentioned above, so don't feel limited and just say what's on your mind. I will see you in the comments.
