It's that time of year again. Snapecast has an owl on the way to wish everyone's favorite snarky professor a happy 52nd birthday...

How will you be celebrating?

Due to a problem with blibbering-humdingers in the server (that may or may not have had anything to do with one snarky professor), snapecast.com was down for a while. We've called in an expert to take care of the infestation and are back. Stay tuned for further Snape-ing!
