Dear Cubists,

Thought you might like to know that there was a big spike in traffic to
our home page back in May. This was caused by the then announcement of
the original Rubik’s cube’s 40th birthday. That story was picked up by
our old friend Slashdot
on which someone jokingly asked whether the good professor had invented
a 4D version yet and someone else posted the link to us. As a result, we
got 8,666 page views on that day which is nearly what we’ll get in a
typical month. Thanks Slashdot!
