    Wow. I was afraid we'd get a radical shift in the style, but that is really close to Jamie's work, and very good to boot.

    In the back of my mind, I was wondering if this was going to happen. Though I can only cite as my evidence that Jamie didn't update his plug on the Erfworld website while Rob was always updating his.

    So who thinks the guest art during the summer updates was Rob's way of finding a new artist?

    I was starting to wonder if the Summer Updates would ever end. Not that I don't like them, but it's the middle of October!

    Yeah, looks like the comic is too popular for it's own good!

    Has anyone else had problems getteing the affirmation-mail for the forum? I don't seem to be getting one even though I tried twice (not today, some time ago). Is it because I use a hotmail account?

    There are reports of problems with hotmail getting the affirmation-mailings, yes.

    Presumably, it will be hard to upload stuff while the server is being hammered, thus delaying things even further.

    I like everyone else am anxiously awaiting new Erf updates. but rather then focus on the negative side of their web servers/databases being crushed by the frenzied horde.. This is like throwback jersey day... back when Erf was only found here.. Perhaps we should dig up a dragon donut of doom debate? or some rampant speculation about who we think the pliers will actually attune to?

    My bet is Sizemore, because letting wanda get the pliers makes absolutely no sense.

    Nonsense, it'll be Bogroll, you mark my words. Twolls have the Fabrication special; the 'pliers would be an ideal fit with that.
    To speed up forum loading, you can turn off Signatures, Avatars and/or Images separately from one another. See 'Visible Post Elements' under 'Thread Display Options' under 'Edit Options' in the User CP (Control Panel). Only works once you're logged in, though.

    Nope it'll blatantly be a random Decrypted archon who also has the Fabrication special (because we're told they pick up other specials as they level, and we're not told that fabrication isn't a special they can pick up).
