So a few weeks ago, the UmpBump anniversary came and went without much fanfare. In years past, Coley had compiled the UmpBump birthday spectacular. This year we felt we needed to do something more than just a post, so we set out to redesign the site from the bottom up.

The plan was to coincide the new look with our birthday, but you know how it goes, life, wives, girlfriends, day jobs, promotions, babies, Japan, bacon, etc.

Although we totally missed launching on the actual anniversary date (by almost a month), we’re kinda still good for opening week. Sort of.

Anyway. Here it is! If you like, or don’t like, what you see, or have any problems with the site, post a comment below, that way we can give the new “reply” engine a try, or if you prefer, shoot us an email: get @
