Once again I’m sorry for the heinous lack of updates, but I have a very reasonable excuse, I swear! I’ve been on a job search and it has paid off, I am now practically employed. All they have to do is finish the background check, where they can find out about this blog and my sordid affair with pastamancery. Nah, I doubt they care what games I play or what I write until it flags something for the government.

In other author related news, I am almost certainly going to KoL Con III. Hurrah! Of course that makes Otakon a remote possibility, mostly due to being hired. Speaking of being hired…

Congratulations to The DREAD Pirate Wesley on becoming Radio KoL’s newest DJ! Her first show was yesterday, which I missed, but I caught a bit of today’s show. It reminded me of sharing a room with my sister, but in a good way because my sister is the main reason for my love of 80s music. Besides, how could I not love a fellow Princess Bride fan?

So Meranna mentioned on today’s show that the Radio Free Gear is no longer being made.  Apparently the new radio items have officially taken the place of the old radio gear as far as contests and giveaways go.  That’s not to say that they will never be given away, but it will probably be along the lines of DJs giving away ones that they already have, purchased or ones that have been donated by users.  Much like the Crimbo items.

As far as the Radio Button Candy goes?  NSurgnie has told me that no one knows if the DJs will continue to be given the RBCs, though ADeadHeart says she thinks that the DJs will still recieve the Radio Button Candy, but that “we all know things are subject to change.”

And as a bonus note, the three new servers are up and running!  You can now use servers six, sever or eight.  That means www6, www7, and www8.kingdomofloathing.com

GrokTheMad (#459384) has confirmed that Amp sent the new Radio KoL items out the the DJs last night, but that the items had been “in the works for nearly a year.” Thanks Grok! Everyone else I asked seemed to have missed my question. Busy, busy DJs!

And I promise that I will write that post on the new items, new inventory feature and that new mini-quest involving Doc Galaktik! Soon, I swear…

The radio does not exist to give us free crap, but that doesn’t prevent us from jumping up and down if we win something. And now? Now we have more things to squeal over like the geeks some of us are! Aside from the updates and new mini-quest related content New Radio KoL items have been rolled out and I have to say they look pretty neat.

One rumor was that the new rkol items were actually introduced on July 7th in honor of Radio KoL’s second anniversary, but I hadn’t seen anything about the new items until today. I’ll try my best to figure out why this is when I was told that they were in the system on the 7th. Click the ‘more’ link to see the items.

I also apologize for this not being as entertaining as I try to make my posts, but it is two in the morning and WordPress ate my previous post on this topic. Trust me when I say that that post was funnier. (more…)
