No new content today because, as everybody knows, today is NATIONAL BANNER AD CLICKING DAY! Yes, today is the day where everybody shows support for their favorite website for clicking the hell out of the banner ads! Then, when they're done doing that, they come to Something Awful and click the banner ads here as well!
Seriously though, I would appreciate it if everybody out there clicked the ads a few times to "find out more" about whatever the hell they're selling. Every click helps make sure this site stays alive, and I welcome all the help you guys give me. This whole event with... you know, that one company... has left me in a really crappy position. You never really know how terrible things in your life can become when a company you work for decides not to pay you for two months (and then you have to go without pay for an additional month because you have to switch networks). Hopefully this is just a bump on the road and everything will smooth out soon, but until that point, I appreciate all the support you can show by repeatedly hovering your mouse over the banner ad and clicking until your nose bleeds.
PS: I've been getting some emails asking me if clicking on the same banner ad repeatedly helps. Please don't click on the same ad repeatedly, as the ad server only counts your IP clicking on a specific banner ad once... so clicking on the same banner ad once or 1,000 times still counts as one click. Hope that clears up any confusion.
Oh yeah, just because I haven't written anything doesn't mean that Jeff K. isn't still updating his hardware site, "Jeff K.'s Hardware Block"...

Maria Mitchell is shown holding a telescope to each eye, using them to ogle passing hunks on the street below. OOOGA! Her tongue rolls out like a firehose, her eyes comically bulging through the ends of the telescopes.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
