Welcome to the newest station in the DynaMars Corporation family! Cycnus Station is a state-of-the-art campus with all the amenities you'd expect back home on Earth -- only here on Mars! DynaMars Corporation has spared no expense making sure Cycnus Station is as safe and comfortable as is humanly possible.

Some of you may have heard some imaginative stories about Cycnus Station's predecessor, Ares Station. Contrary to the sensationalized media coverage, Ares Station was actually decommissioned due to a massive stationwide bed bug outbreak.

DynaMars Corporation has taken extensive precautions to ensure Cycnus Station operates smoothly and free from human error. Thus, the station commander role has been eliminated. Cycnus Station is overseen by an infallible, impartial artificial intelligence called LOGMAN, or Logistics-Oriented Global Martian Administrative Network.

Please wave to LOGMAN! He's watching you at all times from an array of 2,305,072 sensors located all throughout Cycnus Station.

LOGMAN reports a satisfactory first day of operation. Areas of particular interest include the fine work coming from Sector C Quantum Labs. Resident #012's research into reverse-baconization protocols warrants further study. Please congratulate Resident #012 at your earliest convenience.

DynaMars Corporation wishes to inform all Cycnus Station residents of a change to tonight's scheduled dinner of smoked brats. LOGMAN determined a 57.02% likelihood of stationwide stomach discomfort, and has therefore revised the dinner menu as a preventative measure.

The Sector I Mess Hall will be serving salad every day until further notice.

On behalf of the DynaMars Corporation, LOGMAN has declared Resident #012 Employee of the Month. Due to his strong work ethic, sharp mind, and impeccable grooming habits, Resident #012 readily surpasses the high standards DynaMars Corporation expects from all its employees.

Please congratulate Resident #012 at your earliest convenience.

LOGMAN wishes to remind all residents that the Complaint Queue is not anonymous. Complaints about LOGMAN, the revised dinner menu, and Resident #012 are not valid uses of the queue. Further abuse of the Complaint Queue will result in salary penalties.

This update is primarily directed at Residents #011 and #013.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
