I'm still recuperating from the madcap fun of Comic-con....but I did get to compile all my photos and upload them. :) The whole thing was a blast--it's the first time I got to attend all four days of the con. The highlight of the trip was hanging out with George R.R. Martin for a half hour at a cocktail party, where we talked Daenerys from Game of Thrones. He is full of awesome! Anyway, here are all the photos:…

In other news, I still haven't been able to fix the hacked Fuzz Academy site. I'm so sorry, guys. This is really bumming me out, because whatever happened to the site happened to every single page on the site.....and all the code has been messed up. Sigh. I have a "back-up" but it is sadly outdated to the point where things would probably be broken if I uploaded it because the versions of PHP and MySQL on my server are different now. I know, I know. I should've had a more recent back-up. Definitely my mistake there. So at this point, I don't know when, or if, I'll be able to get Fuzz Academy back online. The static site is still there, the Flash one that has the cadets and the image gallery, but the game site is missing. I just don't have the strength to reprogram the entire thing from scratch...there's simply too much, and I'm exhausted.

Maybe it's for the best....the site had been in hibernation for a long time, and wasn't going to be getting updates anymore for the forseeable future. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise, so the site can be taken down until the day when we can get a real game company interested in reviving it. A site like FA simply can't be run anymore by 2 people--I think it needs a team working full-time on it, to make it something worth playing. Anyway, the hacking still makes me sad. Really sorry about that, everyone. I know some of you were still using it and it sucks that you can't access your cadets. :(

At any rate, Fuzz Academy still holds a very special place in my heart. It's down, but not out. For now, I will keep it on display and on the shelves, and hopefully the right opportunity for it will come someday.

To end on a happier note, I bumped into :iconianflynnbkc: at Comic-con when I went to get a signed copy of the Sonic: Genesis comic issue #1! How cool is that. :)

And to end on an even happier note....Legend's UK/Australian cover has been officially revealed! It's epic and awesome, thanks to the talented team at Penguin UK/Australia!! :heart:

I know! I feel so bad, especially for you loyal members. :( I'm very sorry....I wish there was something I could do to make it better. Maybe I can post some things on the forums. Sorry again. :(

awwwwwwwz its fine *hugz* we all just have to stay on the forumns :) and if i knew how to do programming i would otally help out but you know Xd i don't know anythin :P

It sounds like you had a lotttttt of fun, I'm really happy for you!! I will definitely visit you at your table one day ^^!

And "Definitely my mistake there" - it has nothing to do with you! Whoever hacked into the site is such a bum, I don't know why they would ever do that. We all understand that you've been busy and that it'd be really difficult to fix it, so don't worry about it. I really do wish you luck on everything though - dealing with the problem and feeling better about it!

Can't believe you got a signed Sonic comic! That sounds awesome!

Poor Fuzz Academy. It's okay Marie, you've got so much else going on maybe it's better to focus on them for now.

That UK/Australian cover is beautiful, I'm so excited for these novels ^-^

Yeah. I've had to let go of a few projects over the years. :hug:

Awww Marie, that's okay, about FA. I really miss it but I know it must be a chore to deal with that and everything else you have going on. I wish the forums still worked somehow, at the very least. ):

I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to get away from my table to find you. We'll have to try to meet up sometime.

I still wish I could've been at comic con! It's just not easy to go to a con on the other side of the country when you have a 1 year old. Oh well... at least I can re-read Legend to keep me happy.
