If you're looking for something to do over the next few days, the AbsolutePunk Podcast released our AMA episode for Christmas, we've got a thread up in the general forum for "best of 2014" lists (the staff feature will be up on January 5th), and there's a pretty fun "what did you get for Christmas" thread up as well.
