Drop a train on 'em!

Main Page featuring virus Homestar, The Virus(es), and glitches abound.

Starring: Homestar Runner, The Virus(es), Bad Graphics Ghost, Old Man (Peasant's Quest), Biscuit Dough Hands Man, Strong Bad, Bubs, Monte Negro

Page title: "Drop a train on em!"

Date: December 5, 2004

  • Toons - The museum button falls down to the bottom of the screen and takes out some words on the navbar. Mousing over 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. Mousing over a second time returns things back to normal.
  • Characters - Homestar speaks in the loud, distorted noise that Marzipan had in the email virus and the computer on the desk changes to one of several other computers (accompanied by the relevant version of disc media).
  • Downloads - Homestar 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 Coach Z's voice saying "quarter plate cheese 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 over Edgar's face and says "some of my buses".
  • Store - Homestar says "Alright!" 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 original sized icon.
  • Email - 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

  • Released: December 6, 2004
  • In order, the computers you can get from the Characters button are as follows (starting with the Shotgunned Compy 386):
  • Strong Bad's line is from the toon The Luau.
  • 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 Quote of the Week, Sketchbook, and Fan Stuff boxes appear slightly to the left of where they usually are.
    • 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
  • "Drop a train on 'em!" is what Strong Bad said when he ran Edgarware in virus.
  • The floppy disk in the Floppy Disk Container says "Oregon trail 2" for the Broken Compy, Compy with system report & 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.
    • 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. That 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. The word "Characters" also changes green when clicked.
    • The Store button has the font from the "Latest Updates" buttons. 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 and Luau Main Page. These have a plain solid colored background unlike the newer-style shaded button backgrounds.
  • The pop-ups' page titles are:
    • With Biscuit Dough Hands Man - "Make millions doing nothing!!"
    • With Monte Negro- "Click to WIN an E-vacation!"
  • The "fhqwhgads" sound clip is from Everybody to the Limit.
  • When Bubs says 'some of my buses', this is a referal to sbemail #87, mile.
  • Homestar's quip of "Alright!" is taken from the Homestar Talker.
  • 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.
  • The Store button does not change colors when moved over. This is the only instance of this on any main page, aside from Main Page 15's E-Mail button.
  • If you stretch the Store button very far out, you can see the tip of it sticking out from underneath when "Edgar the Virus Hunter" fills up the screen.
  • 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.
  • You can click on the museum link after it falls, but not the links it crushes.
  • There is a Shotgunned Compy in the background, yet if it were shotgunned, that would mean the viruses would be gone.
