Happy Birthday, Heretic and HDB!

Happy Birthday, Heretic and HDB!

It's birthday time again and this fine December 23rd celebrates the birth of both Heretic (1994) and Hyperspace Delivery Boy! (2001). Both of these guys were released to the world at the very edges of the day: Heretic was uploaded at 11:30pm and HDB was uploaded at 2:30am.

Uh, I haven't been able to test it yet since my iPAQ doesn't reach the Net this far out, but if you could email me [...]

My favorites at the show were [...]
