I couldn't put a link for every single project. That would make the
Resources list too long and make it a forest-through-trees problem to find
anything. But for Starkiller the only link I have is through the

SSC reorganized the Resources section and took out some links. They
said they did that to make it conform to their in-house editorial style
guide. Since we do the same thing (although not as strictly), I
couldn't complain. It did give me a taste of what that's like from the
author's perspective though. The links were originally arranged in four
categories. One of the links they took out was to the session papers.
I complained that this was one of the most vital links, and they put it
back. It's now the third link. So if it wasn't there when you read the
article, it's there now.
Lessee, other censorships.
"maybe it needs a big 'subscribe!' button"
"maybe it needs a big "Blondes click here to subscribe!' button".
I'm surprised they didn't censor:
"reading the Deferred HOWTO three friggin' times"
"my shiny metal arse"
('frig' is actually in the dictionary as a Middle English word for "to
copulate". So 'frigging' is not just a euphamism for 'fucking' like I
thought, it actually means 'fucking'.)
There was a guy who worked in the editorial dept years ago. Jason
somebody. It was when Margie was Editor. He'd write articles with
page-long Stallmanesque rant diversions, kind of like reading
unabriged Tolstoy. Margie always let him write whatever he wanted,
and then she'd cut out the rants. It was kind of amusing.
