Well have our new design up soon. For now, this works. Our new name is Phoenix Labs.

It's good to see everything is returning to normal. I'm sure we will all see some more excellent work from Phoenix Labs as time goes on :-)

Well that's good. I especially like the name change. Everytime I would mention Methlabs to someone they would get the wrong idea of what the site is about. For some odd reason. lol.

Congrats to them for getting their site back. Very happy to hear that and hope that all goes well in the future. I have been wondering whether or not to start using PeerGuardian...and this turn of events makes me very pleased to see it in the hands of the rightful owners. Hope all goes well with them in the future and keep making PeerGuardian even better! BTW...I'm with change is pretty kewl! :)

I use PeerGuardian2 myself and I didn't even pay attention to the name when I downloaded it. Now I just clicked on this article expecting a police report.
