Over the weekend, Fortnite in its entirety was sucked into a black hole, leaving everyone clamoring for when they’d be able to rejoin one of the most popular games on the planet. Logging into the game currently only displays a black hole, and all of Epic Games’ social media accounts have gone radio silent. The only thing left for gamers to do is to play a minigame that is activated with the Konami Code. But Epic can’t leave gamers in a lurch for too long – the software developer is going to need to bring Fortnite back online sometime soon.

I have a soft spot for Netscape.com. AOL purchased the brand name back in 1999, probably trying to get a little goodwill from people like me that remember when Netscape was THE web browser. The Netscape.com portal has used a"social news" format for submitting and voting on the prominence of news stories for over a year now, but parent AOL has decided to return to having an editorial staff present the news.
