Tribe.net friends: Due to increasing outages…

Monday, October 13th, 2008

…and Tribe’s seeming inability to maintain RSS feeds without users force-refreshing them after each post (kinda defeating the concept of the RSS feed, yes), I’m finding it difficult to justify bothering even checking the website any longer.
