Button Effects

  • Toons — The museum button falls down to the bottom of the screen and takes out some words on the navbar. Placing the cursor over the button a second time returns it to its normal location.
  • Games — The right side of the table turns black and has a red wireframe grid on it, while the No Loafing sign turns into HTML code. Part of Peasant's Quest becomes visible on the right side of the screen, and we can see the lake with the old man fishing. Placing the cursor over the button a second time returns things back to normal.
  • Characters — Homestar speaks in the loud, distorted noise that Marzipan had in the email virus (possibly a clip from the song "Satisfaction" by Benny Benassi) and the computer on the desk changes to one of several other computers (see list below; each computer is accompanied by the relevant version of disk media, except with the Pom Pilot).
  • DownloadsHomestar Runner's head switches to the old drawing style, and several popups appear on screen saying "Click here to WIN an e-Vacation!!" and "Make millions doing nothing!!" with Biscuit Dough Hands Man saying fhqwhgads (in Visor Robot's voice) on "Make millions doing nothing!!", along with Cory from the That A Ghost toon, and Monte Negro on "Click here to WIN an e-Vacation!!". The sandwich from Main Page 5 appears with the sound clip from that page saying, "Quarter cheese plate scattered-smothered-covered," and eventually the startup screen for Edgar the Virus Hunter covers the whole screen. Bubs (in his Powered by The Cheat style from mile) gets superimposed intermittently over Edgar's face and says, "Some of my buses."
  • Store — Homestar says "All right!" instead of "Store!", and his head floats to the right and into the black. Also, the "Store" button stretches out horizontally a little more each time you hover over it. It will stretch twenty-one times, and will revert to its original size on the twenty-second, but it will only change size when you hover over the normal-sized icon.
  • E-mail — Homestar's head returns to its oldschool drawing style again, and a very misshapen Strong Bad with Marzipan's ponytail appears in the black to the left and says, "Things were just about to start getting crazy-go-nuts!" A duck from Duck Guardian appears in the lower right in the black and explodes, revealing some HTML code, and another duck appears over Strong Bad's mouth and explodes.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • Like the Strong Bad Email on which the page is based (virus), the navbar is in the same Flash file as the page itself.
  • The main link at the bottom always leads to Main Page 1.
  • The Store button does not change colors when hovered over. This is the only instance of this on any main page, aside from Main Page 15's E-Mail button.
  • You can click on the museum link after it falls, but not the navbar links that it crushes ("sb email" and "contact").
  • There is a Shotgunned Compy in the background, yet if it had been shot, it would seem to suggest that the viruses would be gone.
  • The sound made when one of the popups opens when you mouse-over Downloads is the same noise Strong Bad made when a "Message Thyme" window opened up in marzipan.
  • Until Main Page 23 was released, this page and Main Page 21 were inaccessible using the "main" link on the navbar.

Remarks

  • In order, the computers you can get from the Characters button are as follows (starting with the Shotgunned Compy 386):
  • The floppy disk in the Floppy Disk Container says "Oregon Trail 2" for the Broken Compy, Compy with system report, and The Lappy. For both of the Tandys, it says "Oregon Trail". There are no labels on the CDs next to The Cheat's computer.
  • Each button has a different font and/or style.
    • The Toons button has the regular button font (Bauhaus Thin).
    • The Games button has the navbar button font. If you view the Flash file and zoom in, you'll see the Games text seem to change to bold. This is because the text isn't embedded into the Flash file, but rather being read from your computer. To put it simply, zoomed out it's a 12 point font, but zoomed in, it's 72. It also changes font type when clicked.
    • The Characters button has the "Last Updated" font from the upper-right corner of the main page (Comix Heavy). The word "Characters" turns yellow when hovered above and it also changes green when clicked.
    • The Store button has the font from the "Latest Updates" buttons (Potrezebie). Also, when it is clicked, only the word moves downwards, not the button.
    • The Downloads and E-mail buttons are the older-style buttons from Old Main Page 6, Luau Main Page, and Main Page 10. These have a plain, solid-colored background unlike the newer style with shaded button backgrounds.
  • The HTML Code revealed when the duck from Duck Guardian explodes is "<html stuff><body><href>combledon".
  • When the random toon link ("rando") was added to the navbar, The Brothers Chaps forgot or chose not to update this page, as it does not use the regular navbar.

Glitches

  • The Quote of the Week, Sketchbook, Fan Stuff, and Random Toon boxes appear slightly to the left of where they usually are. This also affect toons that pop up, like Biz Cas Fri 1.
    • This is because the menu has some black space on both sides, altering where the boxes are supposed to anchor themselves.
    • This glitch also pops up on the Strong Bad's Room Main Page for the same reasons.
      • Because of this glitch, you can see a quirky thing happen when you click the quote of the week button. For a Split second you will be able to see Homestar's face and a short blurb saying "Oh Haldo! This is my funniest word style ever times that I've said! Hope all is on to it even more lately! And I wish the chicken & msg place was open on Somedays."
        • A previous version of the Quote of the Day page read "Oh Hello! This is my funniest word style ever that I said! Hope you're into it!". It was changed sometime in mid-April 2005, probably the 15th (the date reported in the "Last-Modified" HTTP header for qod.swf). The reason for the change is as yet unknown.
  • When Peasant's Quest appears, you can still click on the covered "First Time Here" link and the hidden area of the What's New button.
  • There is a sound glitch in the characters button. If you repeatedly play the glitched sound by hovering over 'Characters', all the sound in the file will stop for a few seconds.
  • If you roll over the Store button 16 or more times, to make it grow, then roll over the Downloads button, you can still see the left edge of the Store button when Edgar pops up.
