Ho-boy, fun, fun fun.
Thursday before last, my main computer decided it would just restart whenever it felt like it. Soon it just kept restarting in a continuous loop. So I spent the rest of the day and a good portion of the weekend fighting this and trying to determine the cause of this sudden attitude change in my dear workmate. Turns out I was hit by some nasty trojan and virus combo. sweet. Not killer, as I've already had the 'higher consciousness through data loss' moment and backup all the important stuff. Then the rest of the computers were found to have similar nasties. So much for the two different anti virus programs we were using. One in particular is just about worthless. (BTW, I have a new curse word that starts with 'N'). Our two best machines are in the shop being resuscitated. I envision them hooked up to machines that go 'bing'.
This most recent Friday, my infernal combustion carriage refused to start as I attempted to leave to pick up my daughter from school. Whee! All of this on top of the theater of the absurd that is my current family drama. Ultra-mega-extreme-Whee!
At this point it has gone so far past just really pissing me off, that it has become freakin' hilarious.
I mean, what else can one do but just let loose with a full chested, gut straining, maniacal peal of laughter. Legally, I mean. Sure lots of other reactions occurred to me first, but orange jumpsuits don't compliment my complexion. And straight jackets are so last century.
Soooo... I'm a little behind. again. Three days lost trying to geek through computer issues on my own (I'm not as geeky as I would like to be, or would be good for me) plus seven days while the professionals exorcise the beasts from my silicon-brained buddy.
For the next two weeks on the comic's site, please enjoy some very early character sketches during the intermission while I finish laying out the next 36 pages. If you would rather see something else, by all means let me know.
Thanks for your patience, and a big thanks to all who have contacted me to appear in the next chapter. It has been wonderful meeting you all.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, comment to this post before February 15 with your email address (all posts are moderated, and I will not post your email address) or email me a photo or two of yourself that I can use for reference. The better the reference, the better the chance you will appear in the comic ( I have no idea how many will submit photos, and there is a limit to how many I can put in). If you do make it in, I will let you know in advance and send, via email, a high res copy of the page you appear on.
Hope to see you soon.

Watching as Barack Obama officially becomes the President of the United States of America, I am profoundly moved. I look forward and with hope to a world where we respect each other, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or faith. We are all citizens of Planet Earth. We are all members of the same race: Human.
Certainly we may not all agree on every issue. But I hope we can agree that all of us deserve and are entitled to fairness and justice.
One of the most wonderful things about the internet is it's ability to cross the boundaries of geography and allow people of different nations and cultures to learn about and experience each other. I am touched by the warmth of the good people I have been fortunate to communicate with through Oltrecomics.com in Italy, to name just one of the international forums I enjoy. I love the world communities that flourish in cyberspace (I just had to give them a shout out ;D). They just go to show that we have much more in common than we have real differences.
To my fellow Earthlings: I sincerely wish the best for all of us, together.
Peace, and respect to you all. Wherever, and whoever you are.

For my own pleasure, I am going to tighten up some of the old pages and print some hard copies through one of the PODs that can produce comic books. Anybody else want one?
I appreciate all the feedback I've received so far, keep it coming.
