I was going to post something long and deep, with things like "remember that time when" and "we've laughed and cried together" and "It seems like only yesterday" and "oh sweet Buddha, didn't that huge crash suck?"
However, if you've been here for a while, you probably know all that. It's much more interesting to mention that today I'm going to release some awesome new creatures and something else of equal or greater wonder.
Edit: I've increased growth rates for today, to help those of you that still have snowballs and whatnot.
Edit #2: A DDOS attack caused some network issues, but we survived the party crasher.
Edit #3: We also have a beautiful new banner. The painting was done by Yannick De Smet
and the navbar and text was done by Glasswalker.
Edit #4: There is some site slowness and I'm trying to fix it. It's not easy. If you notice the site going down for a couple seconds, that's part of the fixing process.
