With all the new users this has become a pretty expensive thing to build, and it was being built on every page view, even for people who aren't logged in. #
So I removed the sub-menu. Hopefully it will be able to come back in some other form in the future, or perhaps as a separate app. #
While I was there I also removed the link to the Recent users page. There's already a link for that in the first menu. I imagine it might be referenced in the docs now, if anyone wants to have a look that would be helpful. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
