Mark and I email back and forth just before each page is updated. The most recent page's discussion went something like this:

Mark: Here's the page.
Me: Awesome. It looks like our heroes went to the cheapest rental agency at the starport, since they're driving Trabants. Nice touch. I'll mention it in my Jon Sez column.
Mark: By the way, I'm going to hold a contest for our readers to guess what cars the characters are driving. The winners get to promote a website of their choice.
Me: Um...I think our mails just passed each other like ships in the night. My column gives away the answer to your contest. Delete the first paragraph from my column before you put it up on the site, please!
Mark: You win the contest! What site do you want to promote?
Mark: Those hacks? Forget it, they don't need our help.

I love working with Mark.

So several people wrote in with correct answers to the "identify the cars our heroes are driving" contest, and since I'm such a soft touch I declare that you're all winners and will post all the links you sent in for me to plug.

  • John Reiher is advertising the Emerald City Gamefest, which organizes tabletop gaming in the Puget Sound area of Washington State.
  • Nicholas Szlenk suggested plugging Girl Genius Online, Phil Foglio's mad science comic. I'm more than happy to do so, especially since they were big supporters of our previous comic, A Miracle of Science, and I neglected to thank them on the final page for which I still feel incredibly guilty. Sorry, guys!
  • Martin S. wanted me to plug the indie game Iji. I've played it -- it's quite fun, and an impressive effort.
  • Volker Armin Hemmann, who has the most awesome name I've ever heard, just wanted to say hi from the Clausthal University of Technology in Lower Saxony, Germany.
  • Dara is advertising her shows page for upcoming performances of Dara Korra'ti/Crime and the Forces of Evil.
  • And last but not least, Rone is plugging Protrade, a "sports-based stock market."
