kitten upgrade!

Friday, March 25th, 2005

the kitten has a new toy to play with! let me know what you think.

if you already adopted a kitten, you don’t have to do anything to get the upgrade–it should happen automatically! (you may have to clear your browser’s cache in order to see the updated kitten.)

new pet!

Wednesday, March 9th, 2005

the adoption centre now has tiger cubs! rawwr!!

brief update

Thursday, March 3rd, 2005

just a brief update:

our cyber pets now work with myspace! they used to not show up on myspace, but i fixed that a week or two ago. to use your pets on myspace, you must use the “livejournal” version of the code.

and, after far too long, i am actually working on a new pet! i hope to be done within the next week. what animal is it? you’ll just have to wait and see :)

pet F.A.Q. updated

Friday, January 7th, 2005

i finally added some more questions and answers to the cyber pet frequently asked questions page, including the popular question, “how do i put my pet on my xanga?”

monster attack attacked! ;)

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

i’ve temporarily taken down the monster attack page. it got linked to from metafilter and my ISP suspended my site due to the massive amount of traffic. for any metafilter visitors, welcome! sorry about the monster page being down. i’ll probably put it back up after that metafilter entry drops off the front page :)

in other news– i regret to tell you that i am not going to be updating the “adopters list” page any longer. you may have noticed that it hasn’t been updated for over a month, anyway. i was using a mix of automated and manual techniques to keep it updated, but i had to do too much manual clean-up for each update. sorry about that. the adopters list might return if i can figure out a better way of having it updated. this might require user logins, though.

thanks to everyone for their patience! and i’ll try to get back onto making more pets soon!

brief update

Saturday, August 28th, 2004

unfortunately, i have been extremely busy with work recently. this doesn’t leave me with as much time or energy to work on this site, and the pets, as i would like. my apologies.

i am aware that some of you are having trouble loading up the second page of the adoption centre. i am looking into this issue now. sorry for any inconvenience!

i know i’ve been promising dragons for a long time, and you’re probably sick of waiting, but as i mentioned above, i really haven’t had the time to work on them. they are going to be more complex than the current pets. on the other hand, i have been working on some of the basic technology that will be going into the dragons. for example, multiple colours in one pet. the first pet that will have this feature will be a cockatiel! i hope the cockatiel will be ready within the next week or two.

for those who have emailed me asking to put your pet on the adopter list: for me to do this, i need you not just your name and your pet’s name, but also the page where your pet is living. if your pet does not have its own web page, i need the HTML code for your pet. that way i can be sure i have all the correct info for the list.

thanks everyone for visiting the site, and for adopting pets!

(ps. i am behind on responding to your emails, sorry about that…)

more adopter list delays

Saturday, July 24th, 2004

i had a very busy week, so i am a week behind in updating the adopters lists! my apologies. i am working on a more efficient system.

thanks for your patience…

adopters list slow updates

Wednesday, July 14th, 2004

sorry for being so behind in the adopters list. i’ve updated it some but not completely… i’m about 4 days behind! thanks for your patience…

also, i think i may add a search function to the adopters list, since it’s so crazy long now! and maybe some sort functions.
