  1. Hi! Um, I’m not sure how often you check up on stuff like this, but…for the XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Warlock Let’s Plays, the images are just not there. Like, the text is all there and stuff, but the screenshots are gone.

    Most of the jokes end up working because the captions for the screenshots are there, but still. Dunno if you’re aware of the problem or not.

    1. Heya! Thanks for the message! I am actually aware of this problem: when I ported the Let’s Plays over from Blue Screen of Awesome, the image links kept pointing at that particular site. Which, er… is now dead forever. So those links are all pointing at the eternal void.

      I have the images backed up, so getting them to work again is simply a matter of re-uploading them and editing the pointers. And I used to think this would take eight eternities, but recently I’ve stumbled across a way that would maybe actually allow me to do this sooner. I’ll try to see if I have time for that this weekend: stay tuned!

      (In other words: I knew it was a problem, I was just too lazy to fix it.)

  2. Revisiting this page in early 2016, I can’t believe I wrote ‘John Freemans’ instead of ‘Johns Freeman’.

    Past Jarenth, you really let me down here.
