The Dark Sword Miniatures site is back online

Dark Sword Miniatures have posted an update on their website problems. From their announcement:
Hello everyone I am so sorry about the site issues. It turns out our site "was too big with too many images" according to our hosting company, even though we have an unlimited hosting plan and were well under all of our allotments. So they disabled all of our images without even giving notice. I then called to see what the issues was to learn that they wanted to move me to a new server. So they moved the Dark Sword site to a more powerful server which should be good to go. So the site is back up and running (thank goodness) and I feel like a drained man after 2 days of this. It is beyond stressful to have a business with an online presence be taken offline like that. I do apologize.

New D6 Generation podcast posted

The latest episode of the D6 Generation podcast has been posted. From their announcement:
Cryptology, patents, Warmachine Mk 2 and even the CIA all get discussed this episode. Yep, we're not sure how that happened either. First up, patents: how do they work and why do you need them? We had such a great response to our show about Trademarks we asked Romeo from Battlefoam to come on and talk about the how's and why's of patenting something like a fancy pants laser system to cut foam. Later Total Fan Girl chats with Elonka Dunin, a world renown expert on cryptology who has done work for the CIA. But more importantly, she's a gamer. Finally, the D6G team takes a hard look at Warmachine Mark 2. The book has been out a couple months now, Force books are on the streets, and the boys have played more than a few games. Is it everything we hoped for? Oh, and listen close to the beginning of the show for news about a new product from our friends at Lone Wolf Development.
