We're going to get some attention this week

We're going to get some attention this week

Hey everyone-

Just wanted to let you know that we're gonna get a LOT of media
attention this week. I spoke with a woman from Slate a few months ago,
who's writing an article about _why's disappearance, and she used
Hackety to program a bit. So I told her all about _why, Hackety, and
Shoes.

Let's hope we see some new faces around here, and let's be
extra-careful to be extra-awesome to the new visitors!

-Steve

That explains the google alert I got which turned into a 404 link over
on slate.com... :D

  i really think that one of the things that makes Shoes so "special" (yes,
we're special) is the community that builds and supports it.  you folks
rock...

  Shoes On!

A little correction for a bit of source code near to the end - Random = 
Rochambeau[rand(rand.3)] really aught to replace rand.3 with just 3.  

It's a nice article. ^_^
