Permalink Anniversary Bash 4 February 27th 2002

The fourth anniversary bash is coming up in April, so it’s time to start organizing!

If you have a suggestion for a battle level which is not your own, send it to newspaz@home.nl. Similarly, send your CTF suggestions to michael_gagno@telus.net.

EDIT BY EVILMIKE: I seldom check my email, as I get about 70 junk mail messages a day (I am not kidding, in fact, it could be more). I strongly advise you to Private Message me or contact me by ICQ (UIN: 36911191) instead.

Permalink Picture Section February 17th 2002

In the spirit of J2S, we have a new section, jj2 pictures and voice. It is meant for people to show their real face and to let us all know what you really sound like.

So, head on over to the picture section to see what’s there. And, if you have a picture post it. Please, follow the rules for posting pictures and try to not spam the thing, its not a message board. :)
