It's a DNS/Nameserver issue, and I have been bugging Jake about it. Sorry guys! It will be back as soon as some technical issues are sorted.

Get it together, Metallus! I'm having to suppress my natural urge to update Sam & Max news!

Okay, so, the domain samandmax.net (http://www.samandmax.net) is pointing somewhere now, as some of you might have noticed. Jake was kind enough to put up a mini-site to replace the mini-site that was there before.

Basically, I'm still really fuzzy on the details, but I guess that while the files and other viscera of the site are intact, the database--which almost every aspect of the site was tied to--was not transferred over to the new server location for some reason (a billion shifty eyes). That means that I'm going to have to rebuild a lot of what was there from various sources.

I have an old backup from last November, and will crawl through google caches and other places to plug the missing posts back in until we're back up to the point where the site was taken offline. Sorry for the lameness, guys, and I promise that things will be revived as soon as they can be. Planning to get started this weekend.

Also, I will begin work on a new site design this month for sure.

Metallus, there's only like a couple of weeks left in this month though! But count me as excited.

Of course, this means I'd need to get access to the site again. Feel free to start a petition and send signatures to tabacco.

don't really

Yeah, seriously, no one mess with Tabacco. He's busy foiling Blofeld right now even as we speak. (Acceptable use of in-joke because no one comes here anymore.)

Some new site design would be nice, really I think it would.

Eric, I've missed you! Where have you been?! Your father and I have been very worried, young man!

You didn't utilize italics so I'll assume it's not the fun kind of night work. Still having meaningful conversations with underwear ladies at least?

No thankfully I was moved out of softlines and away from my bitch trainer. I talk to blenders now.

Sorry for the derail, but the site is back (http://www.samandmax.net).

At least the derail wasn't as bad as Derailed (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0398017/). That one made me sad for Clive Owen.

This is awesome, now there is a full guide to everything being released.

Aw, thanks Gerbil! It's people like you who make it all worthwhile.

I wonder if Purcell will include his Toybox comics in the new version of Surfin' the Highway... I know it's a long shot, but you guys should go bother people about it.

Uh, Dark Horse?

I don't know why, but for the last few years I've thought that Dark Horse was owned by Hugh Hefner.
