    German Pirate Party Displays Pony Names
    Some time ago, the Pirate Party in Germany made headlines by actually attaining a seat in parliament. Apparently the telephone lines they have in their campaign office are quite uniquely named. Ponies in government, huh? Well, just another step to taking over the world I guess!

    Voice of Equestria Podcast Semi-Break

    Have some copypaste as I work on that personality chip:
    "Sorry, folks, there won't be a regular episode this week.  Working my plot off last week left me too drained to bother messing with setting up and recording a regular episode.  Combined with the fact that Scorch's voice is shot due to being sick and Dalken's internet crapped out, and this just hasn't been a good week.
    That said, I will be recording and posting a "Not-VoE" episode in the next day or two.  This will be much less organized and more akin to a couple of guys yammering aimlessly for a while.  I don't have to work on show notes and there's much less editing involved.  Expect it to be far less coherent than usual.
    (If I can figure out how to do get the Skype call to feed into the broadcaster properly, I might try streaming this live.  We'll see.)"

    Successful Meetups

    Middlesbrough Meetup

    Have some copy paste:
    Last sunday 15 Bronies (and three others) met at the bottle of notes in Middlesbrough. There was a pony hunt, pony discussion and tons of fun had by all who attended (even the non-bronies we'd dragged with us had a good time) We didn't find much in the way of merch, but a few of our number did pick up an item or two. It was a successful meetup regardless, as everyone enjoyed themselves and made some new friends. Hopefully we'll plan another meetup in the near future.

    Groups/Meetups/Guilds Looking for More
