This is a secret area on the Homestar Runner website. You can access this by watching the email website, then entering Strong Bad's page, scrolling to the bottom and clicking on the F10 button. It was updated for the first time in 17 months on August 5, 2004. Apparently, Strong Sad forgot the password for a while. It's "gray_n_grey584".

  • For a short while on August 12th, 2004, heading to the front page of Homestar Runner (that is, the "come on in"/"watch intro" page) would instead bring up Strong Sad's blog. It was fixed before long, however. It's not certain if it was an accident or intentional, but given that it blocked all access to the site for a short period of time (without sneaking through the "404'd" pages), it's likely an accident.
    • Or was when the aforementioned accidental front-page mix-up occured, and will be again when TBC reupload it to the correct URL. Currently it's in the main directory (www.homestarrunner.com/lydia1.jpg) but it links to it from the Strong Sad Blog folder (www.homestarrunner.com/sadjournal/lydia1.jpg).
