Hello. I'm Eve Heidel, HERG Director.
HERG, founded by my husband in 2004, was established to study the Hollow Earth, and the curious creatures native to it, which we have dubbed "PsyPets".
Their ability to learn is nothing short of astonishing. Since coming here, PsyPets have learned to do everything from painting and sculpting to chemistry and electrical engineering!
To study these creatures in detail we rely on volunteer help from people such as yourself. We provide a place for you to live, and even a little spending money.
Interested in signing up?
- Offer to help!
- Offer to help! FOR SCIENCE!
- Ask to see some of these "PsyPets".

turns out psypets.net - and several of my other domains - got hit by some kind of virus! it's unclear what exactly the virus accomplished while it was around, so just to be safe, I've reset everyone's password to random nonsense. I can't tell you what your password is: you'll have to reset it!
the virus was probably targeted at WordPress - a blogging system that I have installed for a personal blog of mine at telkoth.net - but happened to worm its way into other files, causing pages to not come up. I've since patched up WordPress, mediawiki, and other third-party applications, to make sure this particular virus can't get in again!
since it was probably targeted at WordPress, it's unlikely it did anything to PsyPets, but I've done the password reset just in case. better safe than sorry!
sorry about the inconvenience
it's possible some other pages are still down due to infection. the methods it uses to execute itself have been neutralized - the virus can no longer accomplish anything - but the pages it's on won't pull up until it's cleaned out. I'm working with DreamHost to locate all of the affected files.
it's also worth noting that PsyHelp - the psypets wiki - is still not coming up. I'm working on that as well.
sorry again about all the trouble!
