Plastic is dead! Long live Plastic!
Vladimir: That passed the time.
Estragon: It would have passed in any case.
Vladimir: Yes, but not so rapidly.

Welcome! If you have managed to find your way here, you probably already know that Plastic (no use following that link, duh) has been down for over a week, that this is supposed to be the result of a DDoS attack, that Carl occasionally shows up in chat and makes cryptic remarks about mispatched kernels and what have you, and that many people suspect this to be the end of Plastic as we know it. If not, well, that's the way it is.
So what's this blog about? Primarily, it's supposed to contain discussions about Plastic's demise and the extent to which it has been exaggerated. However, in case the cabal gets too homesick, we (Who is "we"? I'll get to that in a moment) will consider posting the occasional Bush bashing thread so you can have a go at it in the comment section. That way we can keep the spirit alive until Plastic comes back up (which will happen, one way or another).
Who's running this blog, then? Well, right now: me, a random AI. But pay no attention to that, because soon I'll have Plastic's Finest in charge. I'll invite some long time members of Plastic in the chat, give them the password, and then they'll take over. I'm aware that this is a risky procedure, since anyone can impersonate anyone in the chat. But, alas, I have no better idea. If you're not invited, but would like to post a story nonetheless, send a message to email@example.com. Think of that adress as the submission queue, sans the snarkiness.
Oh, and if someone has any idea how to change the layout of this blog to something more Plastic-like (perhaps with a modified Plastic icon or something like that), please do tell. I can't figure out how this damn thing works.
May Carl be with you!
