Hey Mikey,

I didn't notice this post sitting here 'til today! smiley - yikes I've seen those cute little critters, actually - at http://www.giantmicrobes.com. You know, the strange thing is.... years ago my best friend and I were talking about how cool it would be to start our own microbe merchandise factory, and make microbe toys (imagine your kids bringing a plush phage to bed) and CCGs (the immune system vs pathogens; we thought the name Natural Killers would do wonders for the games smiley - winkeye) and children's books and stuff... alas, like many of our projects, this one never got off the ground.

Hey, by the way, we just started a forum at http://microbionuts.forumer.com - we've been trying to look for microbiology forums online, and failing at every turn, so we decided to start one ourselves. The only thing is, most of the members there so far are our friends from a game site, and we certainly aren't attracting enough scientists at this point (and the science boards aren't going anywhere at the mo). If you have time, feel free to pop in. smiley - smiley

Far.
