Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

What others think

Blue watch dials are also very http://www.publicenergy.co.uk/ difficult to photograph. This is because of how the light plays with them. In some instances if you didn't know the dials were blue you could just http://www.angina-monologues.co.uk/ assume that they were black dials reflecting light in a particular way that makes them look a bit blue. A perfect example can be seen with the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue James Cameron http://www.replicasrolexs.co.uk/ watch (hands-on here). On that unique dial, you have blue that goes into a gradient which turns into black. The effect is quite subtle, and it is http://www.firstreplicarolex.co.uk/Cartier.html difficult to pick up in photographs. Even seeing that in person, you aren't quite sure if the dial is two colors or just playing with the light http://www.joinwatchsale.com/ in an interesting way.
