December 1, 1999 - Four years! Four years of C&H:Unplugged. (Actually, I started under a different name, but it is still four years.) There are two new tributes for you to see, including an interesting connection with Zits. I promise, I will get around to updating the ICHE soon... and I know that I have the principal's name wrong.
January 6, 1999 - Another major re-design. Like the new logo? Instead of trying to dable in a lot of C&H areas, I concentrated on only three: The ICHE, In Search of Bill Watterson, and Calvin and Hobbes Tributes. Rather than explain everything thats new, please take a look around the site.
May 1, 1998 - Some big changes. The Cartoon of the Month, a feature that started when I opened the site on December 1, 1995, is closed. I could not keep up with it. It's archives are still available.
New this month: The Calvin and Hobbes Indubitable Encyclopedia opens its doors! Also, a new C&H Tributes page opens up.
January 1, 1998 - Well, we're here in the new year, with another update. Today makes two years that "Calvin and Hobbes" fans have been going without seeing the duo daily. We may survive just yet. Sorry to those who couldn't get the Gallery links -- I just realized the problem and fixed it. (That includes the last comic.)
November 15, 1997 - Ahh!! I did it again! Maybe I should just try to update once every 3 months... Actually, the problem is I've been doing a show , so this month's Cartoon of the Month reflects that. Happy C&H Birthday on November 18th!
September 1, 1997 - Apologies to everyone for not updating the page over the summer: too much to do. Take a look at the new FAQ. Also, the Backdoor has been changed to work with UPS's new archives format.
May 30, 1997 - Site recieves CHAMP Certification.
May 22, 1997 - Site repoens as an information and links-only site. They can tell me to stop posting them, but not from telling you where they are.

April 1, 1997 - As you can see, almost everything is new. I redesigned the entire page, taking away frames and adding back the graphics! (Shh! Don't tell UPS or they'll make me take them down. Remember, they are for sample purposes only.) I also added a few new features that I've been wanting to do, including poetry and information about Bill Watterson.
