April Fool's!

Posted by madhack on Apr 1, 2000

As many of you guessed, the tour announcement was an April Fool's prank. Many thanks to Leslie Johnson, who helped me out a lot when my creativity was running low. We tried our best to make it just believable enough to be funny, but too unbelievable to be true. Hope you all enjoyed, and we now resume our regularly scheduled programming :).

Downtime approaching

Posted by madhack on Feb 27, 2000

It appears that The Fandom will have some downtime. I will be moving cross-country for a new job. I've arranged to have it mirrored on another server; however, functionality will be greatly decreased and there will be no news updates during this time. I will also be unable to answer email during this time. With any luck, most people should not see any problems; I just want all the people who have made the Fandom so popular to know what's going on.


In the Flesh '00 tour dates soon
