The 24th of October, 2005 saw a new patch released for
Crystal Caves with the purpose of fixing a potentially
dangerous bug found in the game when running under

Nothing too major to report in this post, although you might have noticed a domain name change. We've moved from Toxicsheep.net to
Rewound.net. Grafix is still graciously hosting PCCW and was nice enough to promptly provide me with some login details when it occured

(in case you didn't know).
