Over Labor Day Weekend, our repository server gained sentience and walked away.

It's back and said it just went for a walkabout and didn't mean to cause any distress. What is interesting though, is it will neither confirm nor deny the existence of these "motorheads" we've heard about.

Thank you all for your concern, and batteries.

The motherboard manufacturer sent a replacement part and we have put the repository server back together. We are back up and running and will now continue our regularly scheduled programming. (please pardon the pun)

Lenses to help Color Blind individuals.

Hi all,

I found this article today and I wanted to share. I know some in our community are color blind and it seems like these lenses could make a whole lot of difference for them.

I'm not color blind, but I'd love to hear thoughts from the community, especially from those with color blind issues.

Yeah there have been several

Yeah there have been several different companies and/or research groups making progress in this area over the last few years. The costs for the technology involved keep coming down and I'd expect in a few more years pretty much everyone will be able to afford some version of color blindness correction if they want it.
As far as CoT goes it still might be a bit too early to assume everyone who wants to play this game will have access to third party color blindness correction. I understand the Devs of CoT are planning their GUIs around the needs of those people who deal with these types of vision issues and I'm sure it'll be satisfactory.
