A few quotes from our readers:
"Like some people usually read a news paper in the morning, I usually start with Max Underground :) Keep it up."
"I seriously missed you guys, and just about fell out of my chair I was so happy to see you are back! Why dont you guys put a ‘Donations’ link with a paypal option? I’d be happy to help keep you online!"
"I’ve recently switched to Maya and yet I continue to read your RSS feeds since they are so informative. Have you ever thought of expanding the Underground line by making ‘mayaunderground.com’ or even ‘XSIunderground.com?’"
