New Stuff!!

So, I wanted to get AU Week out of the way before I announced this, but I might as well do it now.

Me and Zed were talking a couple of weeks back about the fact that there was no way to get digital only content, like Orange Is The New Black and The Tick, in Milliways. I talked to our very awesome mods, and our ideas have been accepted and approved.

This means that Milliways now has a repository for web originals located in the library next to the DVDs and Blu-rays, and your pup can now get a terminal to access the new computer network. The network is designed to allow sharing of content, inter-Bar emails and stuff like that. Still no true internet, though.

Hope you guys enjoy, and thanks to Zed for the repository idea, as well as the invaluable advice.

Happy RPing!

>_> I have to confess to being someone who constantly forgets the lack of internet in Milliways and totally has my characters look things up on Wikipedia and YouTube all the time.

<_< But thank you for sorting this out!

Inter-Bar content? So, like, no cat videos, right? Unless Joly wanted to upload them?

Both Teja and Galen will totally upload cat videos. And I would bet that Bodhi might, too.

I feel like it's a safe bet that Joly's cat videos have already osmosed onto there. Joly just magically radiates cat videos.

Baze has no interest in cat videos, but thanks for letting me know! Thanks also for setting up the network.

I always labored under the assumption that everything already existed within Milliways's own internet-esque network. A network that only works within the bubble that is Milliways, but somehow it already *has* everything, like the library already has all the printed material that ever existed. Is...that different?
