Good news, Rescue Bots fans - Transformers Rescue Bots is primed to get a fourth season. Rumours that the show might end with season 3 had been circulating with the Hasbro Studios webpage listing the show only had three seasons, but a press release today
on the Discovery Family Channel corporate website talks about the network's 2015-16 season - and among the listings is one for a Transformers Rescue Bots Season 4.
While this is not completely unexpected - Hasbro have gone on record saying the show is popular among younger age groups - it was never a certainty given the show has more than hit that magic number of episodes to put it into syndication.
With this news, it also means that Transformers Rescue Bots is poised to overtake Transformers Generation 1's record for number of 22 minute episodes, assuming this fourth season is 26 episodes long like the previous ones.Read Replies (0)

It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas time, right? Either way, Hallmark is starting to show off some sneak peaks of their upcoming 2015 line up. You may recall last year Transformers fans were treated to a Generation 1 Optimus Prime ornament
, it goes without saying that Prime would of course need his nemesis to battle with while hanging from the tree. Thanks to Hooked On Hallmark
, we have our first look at the Generation 1 Megatron ornament.
No prices or release date info is released yet, but make the jump for now to share some initial thoughts.Read Replies (0)

Sad news to report today of the passing of Roger Slifer. Mr. Slifer has ties to our franchise as being a producer and story editor for many Sunbow Entertainment properties, including the original series of Transformers (seasons 2, 3, and "season 5" as well as Transformers: The Movie). Mr. Slifer is best known for co-creating DC's Lobo (with Keith Giffen) in the Omega Men comic series.
TFW2005 sends our condolences to the family of Roger Slifer.Read Replies (0)

Botcon have revealed the first toy for their 2015 convention in St Charles, Illinois. The first of the five to be revealed is "The Thief", a new version of classic Botcon character Packrat, who was a blue version of Rattrap - and so, in that same vein, this new Packrat is a blue recolor of the Generations Rattrap.
Check out the review video below, and watch this space for future convention reveals as well as the all-important registration, which we hope with less than three months to go until the convention will be posted soon.Read Replies (0)

writes Today one of my fellow workers has announced he has found another job and will be leaving our company in two weeks' time. This is all above board and there is no disgruntled employee scenario here; he is simply working through his notice period and finishing up some jobs. I have already set some fileserver folders to Read-Only for him and taken a backup of his mailbox in case he empties it on the last day. Which best practices do you follow that will prevent a resigning user from causing any damage (deliberately or not) in these last days of employment before his account is disabled?Read Replies (0)

writes As with any content management system, building a website using Drupal typically requires extensive use of its administrative interface, as one navigates through its menus, fills out its forms, and reads the admin pages and notifications — or barely skims them, as they have likely been seen by the site builder countless times before. With the aim of avoiding this tedium, speeding up the process, and making it more programmatic, members of the Drupal community created a "shell" program, Drush, which allows one to perform most of these tasks on the command line. At this time, there is only one current print book that covers this tool, Drush for Developers, Second Edition, which is ostensibly an update of its predecessor, Drush User's Guide.
