We're down to the last week before the CIC turns seven years old. We hope that many of you can join us online next Wednesday to celebrate. The release of Standoff Episode 2 has already been announced, and a few other contributors have been working hard to prepare other things to share with fellow fans. When we official begin the party at 7:00 pm Eastern US (4:00 pm Pacific US and 11:00 pm GMT) in #Wingnut, a 60 minute timer begins counting down to our actual anniversary. Although that focal point is where we update the CIC, prizes will be given out for an hour before and after that time. Each year a few people get time zones mixed up and come late, so we strongly recommend checking in early and matching up your time zones personally with us. Wednesday evening in the US works out to Thursday morning in Australia. Everyone will eventually be able to enjoy what we feature on the front page, but the online party is a particularly unique event that only comes once a year. It's the biggest simultaneous gathering of Wing Commander fans anywhere, and all kinds of fun stuff always develops because of that.
