New Synapse Stuff n’ Stuff

Well. Hello there. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Have have you been doing? How did that thing end up going for you? And those mutual acquaintances of ours? All doing well, we hope. Except for that one mutual acquaintance. You know, the one with the eye patch and kangaroo. I don’t know about you, but I never could trust that guy.

And where have we been over the past month? Right here, actually. It’s not that we’ve gone anywhere, it’s the extreme opposite – we’ve been pretty hardcore at staying put and being extremely busy. You might have noticed that the website has changed a little bit. And by ‘little bit’, we mean ‘completely’. Our old site got a wee bit long in the tooth, so we brought in some fresh blood. But as is the tendency with the youngin’s, you have to keep an eye on things. We’re currently doing our best to iron out the bugs that seem to be popping up, and we have a slew of new features in the works too. We appreciate your patience through the transition, and can’t express enough gratitude to those of you who write in and give us details of any problems you stumble across.

But on with the show, yes? You’re here to see some new stuff!

Aaaaand that pretty much covers it. Hopefully this makes up for our absence over the last couple of months. Well, at little bit, at least. We’re aiming to get back into the swing of things, though, and we have plenty more new items comin’ down the pipe.

What kind of pipe, you ask? A green one. And every time a new product comes out, it makes a ‘bloop bloop bloop’ sound. You know, like Mario. Yeah, you know exactly what sound we’re talkin’ about.
