The GPF site may be down briefly sometime this weekend for planned maintenance. During this upgrade, the entire server will be unavailable and will not respond to requests.

[[Nick is dumbfoundedly looking at the monitor, together with Fooker. In the background, the slime mold is withdrawing behind the picture frame. The change of camera position also brings a poster of Mischief into view]]
