Oh no! Not the guestbook!

Oh wait. The guestbook has been down since 2012. I still have all the posts and I've been meaning to put up an archive, but the fact that you're the first to mention it (I think) should help explain why it's been a back-burner thing.

Ah, Bob and George. Good times...

Right? I really miss that comic. I was there almost from the start (came in around Bubble Man). On the plus side, every so often Dave adds commentary on more strips. The most recent batch explains the ending of the X storyline, which I never quite got at the time. I assumed the one talking about ice cream in this strip had to be Dr. Light encouraging George to leave, but it's not -- read the commentary on that strip and the one before. While it still doesn't really explain why everyone's minds got returned to their bodies, the gap is easy enough to fill (we've seen Mega Man make impossible things happen before through sheer force of stupidity).

Also, guess what was a Trek reference all along? I never guessed because the characters were so dissimilar.

By the way, bet you don't know there's a bit of B&G content on this site! The Election '04 event included this easter egg (the first one I did), and not everyone found it.

"What's up with the site?" has just become a relevant question again! As you may have noticed, we were gone for about a day. Tech guy says the server was "totally cleaned out" -- he's looking into how and why. Luckily he makes frequent backups, so we're back now.

I'm guessing it'll turn out to be related to a second problem I was informed about shortly earlier. This one involved our forum database accidentally getting rolled back several months. It's been recovered, but a couple of posts from Sci Fi and Misc were lost. Sorry to their authors.

Now I gotta redo the "Mudd's Women" post!

*Cue shaking fists at the sky*

Seriously, though. Ugh.

Ouch! I was relieved when I heard it was just a couple of posts -- I forgot you were making those huge posts lately. That's rough.
