So, the site has been undergoing a recent barrage of spam. You probably didn't notice anything, because anonymous comments require approval, but I've been deleting them by the dozens daily for almost a week. Blocking IP addresses has also helped somewhat. Just in case you were wondering why you need email verification on the site, and why you sometimes have to fill out captchas... it's really the lesser of two evils.
Otherwise, I have been not terribly productive. Or rather, I've been exceedingly productive on things that aren't related to this game. Just a few bugfixes, and slow progress on some of Alison and Wend's stuff - nothing worth a release. Mostly this has to do with the fact that my other job (a startup currently in stealth mode) has gone crazy. We'll be launching in a little more than a month, and until then, my energy will be somewhat drained. I don't hate it - it's kind of fun for a change of pace - but I'll be happy to return to a more sedate pace of both work and play. I don't play any real-time games - only turn based - and I'd far rather jog with someone than race against them.
