UPDATE: Thank you to everyone for participating in the Indiegogo Campaign last December. We got up to $3,005!!! Alas, not enough to green light the reboot. Sign up on the form in the sidebar to get on the list for the next campaign. This time we’ll do it right! When we get 300 people signed up who we know want the fabulous magnets - we’ll re-launch. Spread the word! More info on the campaign below. Your feedback welcome!
