Minor updates right now

I think I fixed all of the pages - they would just show the menu and a black screen - they should all work now. Also I noticed some stupid things I left off of my page - the webring info - I own the webring, I should have it on my own page ;) - and my EMAIL address! How dumb is that to not have an e-mail address on your page! Well its there now :)

Ron Gilbert stopped by #monkey-island yesterday!

He had alot to say about Monkey Island, his current projects and Grim Fandango!

Holy Cow! I can’t believe I’ve neglected Cafe Calavera for this long

I'm sorry about that. I changed the layout of the page (again) and gave it a much needed new logo. I also changed the MIDI to The Skyskraper roof - the old midi was getting tedious. I have been surfing the internet with my Dreamcast, and it is really fun! It gave me some new ideas for the site because I got to see it brighter and bigger than usual.

Cafe Calavera has moved back to The Grim Fandango Network!

I am putting the people who did the voices for the characters in the character pages, and putting wavs up so you can hear them: Just click on their names! Plus, I added a character profile for Raoul the waiter

Salvador Limones sent me a Plus! theme

Get it at the downloads section. Also, visit his page if the server is busy and for help installing the theme. I added a link to his page as well. Oh, and keep clicking that banner!

I have decided that it is time to take my sites to the next level

So I added a banner. If everyone clicks on this banner once a day, I can earn enough money to get a domain name. When I get the domain name I will have exclusive interviews, more CGI games, plus contests and prizes. One click a day is all it takes. Thanks :)

Mega Monkey Updates

I finally have all the characters on the left finished! There are no longer any repeats. Maniac Midis: My new LucasArts MIDI page. Have a look. Also, clicking on the Mega Monkey Logo is like a webring, each Mega Monkey page has a different Mega Monkey Logo Link. Here is a list of the current Mega Monkey Pages: The Skolarian Device: A Zak McKracken Fan Page The Mega Monkey Maniac Mansion Page Cafe Calavera

Sorry for the long delay between updates

I fried my motherboard (stupid static electricity). Now, I'm back, although $200 poorer, and can return to business as usual.

Font Change

Rottingbeef suggested on IRC the other day I shouldn't use the dango font so much on my site because it is hard to read sometimes. So I decided to use Comic Sans MS instead. It is alot easier to read this way. Hope you like it.

Tuesday, February 23, 1999

Sorry for the long time between updates

GFN has moved to Adventure Gamer, and I was waiting for the switch to update. As you can see, there are more characters to the left than before. Since they are Icon-sized, I will be making an Icon set and a desktop theme as soon as I get them all done.

Grand Opening

Welcome to the Mega Monkey Maniac Mansion Page. You are one of the people to put the hamster in the microwave since February 13, 1999.

Friday, February 12, 1999

I have decided to finally get the Mega Monkey pages to where I wanted them to be in the first place

A complete coverage of ALL LucasArts Adventure games.
Not just a few pictures, reviews, and downloads; complete fan pages for each of the games.
AND I plan to update them regularly. How can I do this you ask? I have no life :).
For now there are two Mega Monkey Sites Up:
The Skolarian Device - Zak McKracken
Cafe Calavera - Grim Fandango
