We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better … stronger … well, maybe not faster.
Well, BlitzGirl is experiencing a bit of a title wave.

I still get 5f5475caf6010dfdbb9f747bdaa7b81200fec32e15a70c19651b4bfa2fe163fc, and yours 404s for me.

So what's the deal? time.png still redirects to 5f5475caf6010dfdbb9f747bdaa7b81200fec32e15a70c19651b4bfa2fe163fc.png, and the Javascript gives the non-existent 99d67c40662fe2db377c9f7c8d6a5b1b82566b24b7d9a665638e16b299747325.png?

I'm staring at a white Newpix
Not like the ones I used to know
Made my sad eyes glisten
And Waiters listen
To hear the DONG and watch the show

I'm staring at a white Newpix
With every PresentPost I write
May your thoughts stay merry and bright
And may Time
Fade back once more from white


So glad you made it, BlitzGirl! We've all been anticipating your arrival.
