The New Sockscast Site And A Couple Changes
April 18th, 2017

After last week's kerfuffle, we have a new Sockscast site up and running. Sure, it's not as spiffy and doesn't offer the same organizational tools that blog software features, but it does look more in tune with the site's overall design, and it's a lot more secure. So, all new episodes going forward will appear there (and on the mainapge, obviously.)

Secondly, I've removed the "Random" and "Links" pages because they were horribly out of date and served no purpose. Currently they go to empty pages, but I'll be updating the functions to link to the podcast and our Discord soon, along with a new banner and set of buttons to kinda spiffy the place up a bit.

That's all for now!


So, Here's What's Going On...
April 13th, 2017

Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net's webhost has been going to the shitter for the last three or so years. They were sold to a larger entity, and over time I started noticing that the site's overall speed was dropping, we were experiencing more downtime than we had previously, and customer service expediency and willingness to help in situations where the site needed it had plummeted. The latest outage, having lasted over 24 hours, was met with no response at all from customer support, informing me that the site had been "suspended" but nobody seemed to know why. Even the email I received made no mention of what was actually the issue. And so, it was time to pack the ol' bags and head for (hopefully) greener pastures.

And so, here we are. On a new host. Go ahead and drink it in.

Anyway, since we've moved to a new host and I'm still in the middle of getting everything back up and running, there are likely things on the site that are probably broken or perhaps missing. We're working on it. Right now we're in the middle of trying to sort out the Sockscast situation. The biggest issue at the moment, is the Sockscast's blog system had to go. Too many damn security holes and I honestly don't have time or patience to deal with them. But we're working on a solution that should be fully realized within the next week or so.

In the mean time, Sockscast episodes can be found here. It's not elegant, and it may never be quite as elegant as what we had, but for now we're just gonna use the page the Sockscast RSS feed scrapes for updates. Alternatively, you can use the Sockscast RSS feed directly to keep up with and listen to older episodes. (NOTE: As I'm currently in the state of getting everything back up, episodes may not yet be available. This will all be sorted soon.)

That's all I can really think of at the moment. I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience and confusion this has likely caused. I'll be sure to post critical updates and what have you on the SMPS twitter feed @SMPS_Updates, so there's another way you can keep up with things.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

And have I mentioned that god damn, you're lookin' FINE today?

Getcha some!!


Her Lullaby is Now Available!
February 14th, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day from myself and John Thyer to you!

Today, me and John are launching a pretty big project we've been working on since the first week of December, and you can grab yourself a copy of it right up there in the ol' linkeroo.

Her Lullaby is a horror-themed visual novel full of mystery, drama, violence, and emotion. It draws from many of our influences and personal experiences and is a game we're both very proud of, and we couldn't be happier to finally be sharing this thing with all of you.

We had a lot of help along the way and we want to send a huge shout out to the following people:

Carmichael Micaalus for his awesome character art and designs.
S. Broka for the amazingly moody and atmopsheric score (which is included with every download!)
Shiori Haino for all the extra coding help.
Andrea Ritsu for one of the game's final key pieces of art.
And After5, Ghosty, S. Broka, and wasnotwhynot for beta testing and offering lots of great feedback.

Most of all, Her Lullaby is a big fat "THANK YOU" to everyone that has inspired us to want to create. Without your wonderful creations, this game wouldn't exist. You've given of yourself and put cool things out into the world for people to enjoy, and we offer our thanks by doing the same.

We hope you enjoy and feel free to send feedback!

Loves to you all.

-Polly and John

People actually reading websites these days. HAHA! God, can you even imagine?
