I am in mourning - Sims 2 site is gone

I think it actually happened some time ago but I wasn't paying attention. I am mourning for 2 things. The first is that I didn't get a chance to copy some of my material from the forums for reposting to the little Sims 2 blog I have. Damn. Nor do I have a spare copy of my Sims 2 bachelor challenge story.

But the main thing I mourn is that means that Candi's Uglacy is no more. That uglacy was the first legacy story I ever read and one of the funniest Sims stories around. Last time I had checked, Candi was still working on a Apocalypse challenge which was done in the same style. And it's all gone.

Cool new blogger feature

One of the updates to blogger is adding a 'lightbox' facility to all blogs. Basically, if you click a single image in a blog post, you get to scroll around all the images in that post in a separate window at a larger size. A nice way to concentrate on the images and easy to use.

Some of the recent changes to the blog interface are good, a few are annoying. Like some of the advanced settings aren't available - you have to go to the old interface to choose if you want people to type in the word verification or not. But this one is cool in my books.
