Hey everyone. There were some problems with the sliders and FF2/IE6 in the newest build, so I had to regress to a week-old version of PadMapper which seems to work better. Sorry about that, hopefully the newest version will be back up soon (plus some of the stuff I've been working on over the past … [Read more...] about Falling Backwards

It's recognizable even when shrunk, the colors are pretty muted don't clash with the existing colors, and it matches the name. I'm pretty … [Read more...] about PadMapper gets a logo
