virtual pet catalog

Thursday, May 20th, 2004

the adoption centre now has a small catalog of virtual-pet-related products available from amazon. it’s just barely started, check it out. any purchases you make from that page will help support the site, too!

some site tweaks

Monday, May 17th, 2004

first, biggest change is that the home page has been revamped, woo!

second change: there’s a new tech section, which doesn’t have much in it yet, but stay tuned…

in pet news: work on the dragons is proceeding slowly. thanks for being patient!

apologies for activeX popup ads

Wednesday, May 12th, 2004

apparently, the ad server has been serving up ads with “activeX popups”; that is, ads that prompt you with a dialog to install software. i did not approve of these ads, and i am currently working with the ad server agency to resolve this.

in the meantime, i would urge you to NOT install any software that says it’s from “GAIN Publishing” or “FlashTalk”. i don’t know what this software does (possibly adware and/or spyware).

i apologize for this nuisance!! and i’ll do what i can to fix this…

UPDATE: i haven’t seen those offending ads in a while… has anyone else? plus, if you have already installed the spyware, try downloading and running ad-aware. it’ll search your system for adware and remove it.

thanks for hanging in there.
