Never let it be said that was ever in a state of non-development. If anything the video is yet another demonstration of the effect you and Ross had on the site. It was like a game of space invaders in there from mid 2009 onwards, Ross was a bit lonely before that

Haha, it looks like I went into shock shortly after Conor arrived; he banged into a bunch of experimental modutils stuff and I just sorta poked at the CSS/JS and watched
