It just shows up as 404'd for me for whatever reason. Cleaning my cache doesn't work.

Loved it! An awesome explanation of the warring factions of independent filmdom.

I'm going to submit a guess that :sb:'s background image will be different each email.

The Compe's typing sound and the paper icon could take some getting used to.

The opening of :pom:'s film was very Junoesque :-D

I'm gonna miss the strongbad_email.exe at the start of every email. And the giant pixelated mouse is annoying.

Also, coincidence or not, this email started with a joke pretty much completely lifted from a Zero Punctuation video (short answer: no, long answer: NOOOOOOOOOO!!). Though it's probably just them both coming up with the concepts on their own.

I think my ISP needs to refresh its DNS or something, according to the H*R FAQ.

Try holding shift before refreshing.

Yes it does. I watched it. Quite good - the first SBEmail in a while that actually made me chuckle.

4/5.

I like the Compé but a GUI? That's cool but so not Strong Bad.

Thank you for your advice, but I just tried and it doesn't work.
Maybe something on the website is broken? I mean, the quote of the week was glitched, maybe this problem is just another symptom of a bigger problem with the site.

It sounds like more of a problem with your Isp because the website is fine for me and probably others as well. Maybe all you's who are having problems are on the the same ISP...?

This email rocks. I love the Compé. Strong Bad's finally gone GUI! And we still get the visual appeal of seeing him type in a white-on-black display, because his mail client is ancient! Hooray!

I approve. :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: / :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb:

Lovin' the GUI.

Heh heh, he's all Vista'd-up.

I like it. Yeah, I've seen the NOOOO thing on ZP before, and the "no festival for you because I hate you" thing seemed a little Maddox, but overall it was pretty solid. I could get used to the Compé.

It's one of those toons where I only get a chuckle or two, but it's still enjoyable. Great start for the Compé.

Awesome. :D The Compé got a great start, and the Digital Paper made me chuckle.

5/5.

I'm getting nothing but "404'd" no matter what link I'm given and there is no link to it on the Official site.

What gives? :eek:

This was nice. Not the funniest it could have been, but they adjusted to the new computer excellently (I'm liking the new paper), and you have to give them credit for finding a topic that could incorporate Pom Pom. I'm a little disappointed that they didn't go with something more like the easter egg with Strong Sad and Homestar, but maybe that's just because I'm such a huge fan of Homestar.

That "long answer" joke was totally used by Zero Punctuation before. They couldn't really have known that, so I'll let it slide.

3.75/5, so 4/5 on the poll.

I don't like that computer anymore...

That non-paper paper sucked.

2/5

That computer is WAY to freakin modern for SB. That wierd paper at the end? WHAT'S THAT EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE!!!!!!!

I mean, the actual email was good, but with that computer and paper... I don't know wether to puke or have a siezure...
