After a Long Wait.. I Update :D
I added a new video to 'Videos'; Ham-Ham Heartbreak - Full Japanese Commercial and new versions for these videos; Ham-Ham Heartbreak - Japanese Commercial and Tottoko Hamutaro Opening 4. One 'Fan Art' is revived which is by Mimitchi. Since I made new screenshots of the 4th opening which is the only opening that Spat and Harmony appear a while back I replaced them with the old ones, the new versions are in better quality and there's one more added as well :) Since several Spat pics and Harmony pics could use a better version I made redo versions for these images; Harmony 46, Harmony 48, Spat 54, and Harmony 85. I also took a few screenshots of new Spat and Harmony pics from Ep 130 and 244. I've noticed this a while ago but in 'Enter/Hiatus Signs' the text in the Spat hiatus is barely read-able so I went over the text in black, which looks a lot better though I don't remember what kind of text style I used and used a simple style. Since there's many broken images that I can't revive because of Majhost's fall, I have cleaned up the following pages; Fan Art and Free Layouts by removing the broken images. Though since all of the images that I used to create the free layouts are broken I'm going to start that section from scratch and just make three layouts instead. Maybe I'll make one more later on, who knows. For the fact that I only have the thumbnails of the coloring pages, I have sadly deleted 'Coloring Pages'.. There's also the fact that it'll take too long to redo all of the ones I did, lots of work was put into them, which includes all but one. It might've been a while since I noticed but the Free Online Users html code doesn't work anymore and the link in the code takes me to another site than the one that the code connects with. For those of you that don't know, Free Online Users was a way to know if anyone was on SHHB. If one person was on it would say "1 Ham-Hams" but if two people where on then the number would change to 2. Now it just says 'Ham-Hams' despite the fact that I'm online so it's defiantly broken.

Sorry about that but when your celebrating Yulemas and mostly everyone around you is not celebrating the same thing, then people might ask questions. Though I've recently noticed that Yulemas is actually a word and not made up by me XD I actually came up with the title by putting Yule in instead of Christ since I don't think that Christian stuff is needed. If you don't believe that Yulemas isn't an actual word then Google it ;) Even though I'm not like some people when it comes to this holiday, I say celebrate it however you like, I would just like you to respect my meaning of it and if you do, I'll do the same so let's not fight over whoever is right and celebrate Yulemas/Christmas with peace and harmony cause it's not the way of this holiday if people fight, right? :) And even though I don't like the common title.. I still bare with it so it's hard for me to be all mad about it but as I said before it's the shoved Christmas story thing that hits into Yule is what bugs me, but if you guys wish to believe in such a person then go ahead. I'm just explaining why I chose the update title to be Yulemas, that's all. Since that's out of the way on to the updates; Like I said on the previous update, I've added the English Ham-Ham Heartbreak commercial pictures to both 'Spat Pictures' and 'Harmony Pictures' which follow up from the Japanese version and added the actual commercial on 'Videos' below the original. SHHB's old affiliate; Sunflower Garden has returned, which used to be in the Inactive Affiliates section! So, it's in the original section of 'Affiliates' and has returned to the navigation and on top of that, a new button ^^ Though since it's bigger than the other buttons in the list, it's been sized down but it's only like this in the navigation. Though since HHF sadly hasn't updated in over three years, it's traded place with Sunflower Garden :S But if Ham-Ham Friends ever becomes active again, I'll gladly return it to where it used to be ^v^ For the rest of the updates, it seems that I was able to upload Harmony's Yulemas AMV but.. I tried uploading Spat and Harmony Tribute (Redo) and Spat and Harmony - Defeated to Photobucket but the site isn't accepting them.. and I tried twice, it does upload the AMVs but they never get added to the album.. -_- Since this is happening, they're available to upload on Mega just like I did with the episodes. This may be permanent since finding a suitable host, is a drag (Shikamaru's word! Yay! XD). Spat and Harmony - Defeated is the replacement for Spat and Harmony - 7 Things since I couldn't handle the fact that I would have to use that song again lol Sorry to those who wanted a redo of it.. not being a redo like the others, it's a brand new AMV <3 Before I go.. Happy Holidays everyone! :D

Added Eng HHHB Commercial in 'Videos'
For 'Spat & Harmony Merch' I found out that the original images the HHHB guidebook is actually the images for a book that is about the game, so it turns out that a new item is listed; HHHB Book which I have little info to go on :/ For 'Sprites' I noticed that I accidentally added doubles of a Harmony sprite, so I restored a missing sprite to replace the double. One that I remember having on SHHB before the broken image storm lol Now it's back, yay! 'Episodes' has been updated since Kristopher has given me more awesome stuff through an e-mail, it's not a recent one but I now have the full view of Ep 130's cover so now that thumbnail can be linked and the back cover has finally been revealed :D For the fact that I have that, I removed the Cantonese cover for the episode since I rather stick with Japanese ones, Japan is where Tottoko Hamutaro came from after all :P I also made better thumbnails for Ep 130 and Ep 232 by removing the black borders to make it look better =3 I also updated 'Credits' a little. I'm planning on adding a AMV redo for Harmony - Where Are You Christmas somewhere around December at least if not around Xmas.. maybe I'll make a small update next time just so I can add it near a proper date instead of outside December. I'll probably do that.
The first Halloween image! I did many Xmas ones in the past and thought of doing a Halloween one for this year :D I downloaded those cool looking brushes to go with it too :3 The 17th layout (the only Halloween layout), was the inspiration for making this since orange and black are key colors on there too, just like this image. The images on there aren't on the site yet but they will be on the next update in full view, which are from the English Ham-Ham Heartbreak commercial (which is on HHP). Planing on adding more pictures from that commercial and the commercial itself on the next update as well.

New Harmony Layout And More!
More info for the update Changes/Restorations; During the hiatus I have encountered pages that either needs changes or restorations and these are it.. 'Music': Corrupted Files Fixed for; Harmony's Theme, Harmony Tower, Duet and Couples, and Ham-Hams. Tottoko Hamutaro Opening/Ending changed to Third Opening/Ending since the old files aren't from the episodes, might be from the Cantonese version of Hamutaro (Used to have the Cantonese version of Ep 130 many years ago). 'Free Layouts': Layout Templates now only have a link to get to them, instead of linking them to thumbnails since the thumbnails are gone being hosted by Maj. 'Ham-Ham Heartbreak': The image above the Story section is now removed since it's hosted by Maj. 'Blogs': The last Spat and Harmony blog is in storage aka hidden since the image is hosted by Maj. 'Avatars': Since I have no idea what the last three 100x100 avatars look like they are all placed in storage aka hidden since the avatars are hosted by Maj. Maj is Majhost by the way, just wanted to type Maj to make it easier. Now I have some important things to type about the affiliates; For some reason Ham-Ham Friends is down.. I doubt this is a Webs (that hosts HHF) problem so it's probably because of Free Domain.co.nr which hosts HHF's site address since I tried going to that site and saw that it's down. Because of this problem, SHHB's second address is gone as well being hosted by the same site so the free domain button is temporary removed including the second address on 'Splash' until further notice. This also deals with the hiatus page when SHHB is on hiatus again. I've known about this for a long time but Hamtaro Friends 4 Games is down too since Sunset, the owner is moving the site to another host. I thought it would some day return in so many months or more but it hasn't. So, Hamtaro Friends 4 Games has been moved to Passed Away Affiliates..

Goodbye Chat Box..
I'm sorry to say this but the chat box has been removed. Why? Because of drama, aka a whole bunch of crap that makes this site look bad. Years ago, Ham-Ham Paradise had a chat box, like mine because that's how I got SHHB's chat box in the first place. A whole bunch of crap was going on there as well and soon, the chat box was removed, for good. I could have gotten rid of SHHB's as well in the past but I didn't. But now, I can't stand it any longer. It's a shame this had to be done, I was actually planning to let the chat box live on until Version 25 and just like this layout (Version 23) I had a special Harmony chat box header, just like I did with the Spat layout.. since the next layout is going to be all about Harmony. I thought it could survive until Version 25.. but now the time has come to end this crap, once and for all. For the fact that the chat box is gone, that Harmony version of the chat box header, won't be included.. Oh, and I'm sorry to say that the chat box won't return. It's gone for good, just like HHP. You all have a 'special' someone to thank for because of this. Yeah, I can try to get rid of this someone but that someone keeps popping up.. And what's the use of doing that when I'm the bad guy just because I'm trying to not kiss someone's butt. Some people just need to know who's boss and being annoying and stupid doesn't mean that person should get away with it. I've been dealing with this 'special' person ever since Version 7, the early years of SHHB's chat box and it started when the site had three drawing boards, which where places where people could draw and chat but that soon got filled up with crap because of that 'special' someone. I thought I could try to reason with that person, I tried, failed, I tried again, and failed again. It just kept going on, and on, and on. I amaze myself for dealing with that crap for that long. But as the drawing boards went down, so should the chat box. If you want to label me as the bad guy, then go ahead but just so you know, I'm not the one that started this crap train. I didn't create SHHB to deal with people's crap, I created the site so fans of Spat, Harmony, and Hamtaro could know more about these two awesome characters for the fact that the English version of the episodes stopped never showed them, only Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak did, at least not outside of Japan. I wanted to spread what I know and what I saw on these lesser known characters to those who didn't. And so, this rant has come to a close.
I'm really sorry for those who didn't cause any of this crap. I've been in situations like this when something bad happens because of someone else so I know how it feels.. and it sucks :/ I had no choice but to do this, I hope you guys understand. By the way since the chat box is removed, it's rules are removed as well.
During my months of AMV making, I went to Youtube and stumbled upon the full version of that Japanese Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak Commercial <3 found out that the one that I saw was the short version of that commercial and in this full version new things happen 8D Spat appears out from the shadow and smirks at Hamtaro and Bijou. For Harmony, she flies happily while Hamtaro and Bijou do a little dance upon the tree trunk and then the game's title falls in front of them as Harmony turns to the two with a worried look at how the title almost crashed the two ham-hams. When I saw this commercial, I was all "I must do screenshots! :DD" especially for the sake of Spat's part XD I may not have a crush on him but he's still a cutie ^3^ I got 3 screenshots of the devil-ham and 2 for the angel-ham, Spat got the most since he had more movement than Harmony. Along with this update, I re-added the Spat and Harmony smiles since I could revive them thanks to the forums for keeping them, despite Majhost going offline. Yay forums! And revived many more pictures, Merchandise Section; Full picture of the Spat UFO Plush (Though it isn't the original one), The rest of the pictures for Spat Chocolate Bar, The rest of the pictures for Harmony Chocolate Bar, Harmony UFO Plush pictures, Thumbnails for Tottoko Hamutaro Poster and Tottoko Hamutaro Puzzle. Picture Galleries; Ham-Ham Heartbreak Commercial pictures for Spat and Harmony.

In other news, I'm willing to redo the many Spat and Harmony AMVs that have been deleted. The Windows Move Maker 2.6 which I used to make all of my AMVs has freezing issues so I downloaded an old version that is only one step older than 2.6, which I used for other AMVs for a while but then it got accidentally deleted x.x I searched Google, trying to bring it back so I could start redoing Spat AMV and Harmony AMV but Norton, my anti-virus was blocking it, automatically deleting the file which I tried a few times but now I have issues where I can't download that old movie maker since I don't have the right version of Windows, I have a Vista but it needs XP to active it.. Since I got into these two issues, I'm going to try using 2.6 again. If that doesn't work I'll have to try getting the old one again or use the version that I get when I buy a new laptop, since this one that I'm using, is really old now and can have problems but it still stays strong.. <3
A Little Bit of New Info Added to 'Spat's Page'
A Small Amount of New Info Added to 'Harmony's Page'
SHHB Revived & New Spat Layout! :D
I even ended up finding out that Rapid Share (that hosts the episode downloads) have been secretly removed since the download page says 'contains' no data' though there used to be 'data'. And Vimeo has betrayed me by taking down all of the AMVs that used to be hosted there, including the watch online episodes. I thought I could trust Vimeo too but no, I can't O< So, Vimeo wants to be like Youtube but unlike Youtube, all of my videos on that account weren't removed T_T Since this has been done, watch online episode links are gone since it's a pain to find a reliable host (though there is Photobucket but I'm not even going to try) but the episode downloads are still available and have been moved to MEGA which is what HHP uses, so that's how I got the idea. I'm sorry to say this but.. thanks to Vimeo, Harmony - Where Are You Christmas? was the only video that I couldn't revive... thought I saved it on one of my flash drives but I didn't.. >: So, yet another video is gone! T_T All of this bad news is SHHB's greatest down fall.. ever.. During SHHB's revive, I made other updates that are listed below. Now for some good news :D This is the greatest Spat layout I ever done.. I was going to try using a style switcher, where it's possible to have two styles and have Harmony's new layout added as well but the progress was getting slow and it wasn't working >.< I was getting tired of the small content so I made it bigger 8D and created a new disclaimer, and changed/added some stuff which can be explained in 'About this Layout' and tells a lot more about this spatastic layout <3

Added more History of the Site on 'About the Site' and added a new page below Fun Stuff called 'Extra Fun' I could tell you more about it but I'll leave it as a surprise :3 For Affiliates, Maxwell's Library and Sunflower Garden are inactive so I moved them to the Inactive Affiliates list.
And last but not least, I have a sad announcement to make... one of my affiliates.. Ham-Ham Friends has been.. removed :< I think it's Web's doing since I doubt that Kitty-Ham would do such a thing, no matter how inactive her site was. I should add HHF to the Passed Affiliates list but I'm too much of a pussy to do it, sometimes the truth can hurt and this truth hurts me... Darn it, Webs, you jerk!! Despite the bad news, I wish every one a Merry Christmas ^-^ Hope everyone has a good Christmas! ^^ I didn't do a Merry Christmas image this year since I think I've done enough. On a side note.. I can't use the update blog anymore since the manage blog page has been removed!! T_T Meh, I knew someday something will stop me from using it. I can't make any updates on it but at least it's still here. Oh and that chat box on choosing a good song for a future Spat layout has been removed months ago since no one was using it.
Edit: Ham-Ham Friends is back!! YAY!!! 8D
