Oh well, the site is breaking, spambots are now attacking the contact form sending nonsense emails 60 times a day, lulu.com has erased the Go For The GOLD projects (yeah I have the source files, but not the motivation to re-upload old books to print for a new stash to sell when there is no reason to), and the site has been inactive for at least most of the last 2-3 years as priorities have shifted, tumblr killed blogs and then promptly shat its own bed, and nobody has read blogs for 10 years, I guess. Anyway, meathaus.com can sign off with “We had a good run.” Thanks for reading!
