Wow, a downtime? That's rare ;)

Remember when the site used to go down at 5 AM for maintenance?

You could only play Samurai Asshole and a few others...

memories. :D

For those of you with nowt else to do during those four long hours...

Why not get a decent IRC client and come to NG Chat?

I just wanted to let you know that CityPaper in good old Philly had an article about the success of newgrounds and Alien Homonid. It's really worth the read.

To tell you the truth, I absolutely forgot that you were from this area, being the Bucks Montgomery area. I lived in Sellersville, then moved to Lansdale, and now I am a student at temple in beautiful north philly.

enough of the nostalgia. Keep up the good work and if you want to, I'll mail you the article (postal service so you can put it in your secret scrapbook). email me or message me or whatever you do.

I'm prepared for it. So during the downtime, I'll go to another site. No big deal, even though NG is better than pretty much all the ones I can think of.

Tom, will you ever be coming out to Los Angeles? If you ever are, please post it and I WILL be there. Also, what are the changes that you are making on the site? Four hours... hm... I guess I'll have to continue work on my game. Should be out in a week or two.

Tom,
I'll be up in Austin this coming Friday.
I'll try and stop by and see what's happening.
By the way, is this your first time to Austin?

Can't wait for the new improvments, I don't care about the hours because I'll still be sleeping.

A lot of people would also love for the BBS text search to return.

I would love it if they had an area in the Golds menu
where you can see if someone quotes one of your posts
rather that going through all the topics/pages to find it

just like the "responses only" in the reviews

Well you wait for the downtime to end. You can go to this site

http://www.everyvideogame.com/

and play old NES games for the next four hours. Note, it requires Java to work.
