Apparently our publication system doesn't actually support HTML format after all and I might have to write that part myself. :ohno:

The power light on my 7 year old work MacBook has gone out, but it still works. Hang in there buddy!

First time I ran into a situation where I can't even buy a role-playing game because it requires you to use either a Google or Facebook account.
