Jack : gravatar silence

Gravatar is a "global avatar" service. In essence, you pick an avatar (a small square picture to represent yourself) and then you can expect it to show up on any site that supports gravatars (my personal blog is one of them).

Gravatar2 is supposedly coming soon. Honestly. Except their last blog post was a month ago. And the admin last posted to the forums in August. And the server is constantly down.

But we've been assured! In the old blog posts, he states in no uncertain terms that Gravatar is not going away! That they're close to a reliable serving mechanism and everything is going to be awesome! You know what would be really awesome? An update. So everyone can stop standing around holding their breath and hoping that a website they thought were awesome dicks them about.
