Technical Difficulties! We’ll Be Right Back!

Certainties of life: death, taxes, and the inevitable burnout of a computer. Two out of three became a prominent part of my weekend, but it’s the last one there that requires an update from me here. I knew it was coming but alas, not the day nor the hour. It’s an old PC and for ages it’s been giving me signals that it’s not as healthy as I’d like. Saturday was the day when I could no longer ignore it, and it was a pretty major and sudden failure. BOOM.

Fortunately I still have my laptop so I could at least post the comic (which, also thankfully, was complete enough that I didn’t desperately need my PC), but next week’s is in question. I have a new computer to replace the old already (yes, the explosion was that bad) but it’s the rigmarole of getting it pieced together, running, everything installed, all the files back in place, and happily connected and functioning while I script, draw, and paint the next comic in the time that remains on the side. I’m optimistic (as well as a slightly crazy breed of stubborn) but there’s a tiiiiny chance that next week’s comic will be late. Probably not skipped entirely, but yeah, late. I’ll keep you guys posted as the weekend draws nearer.

It’s also a given that I may be scarce this week, which is awful because I’m already badly behind on keeping up with correspondence.

Aaaaahhhhh somebody stop time for me just for a while… XD

    Oh man, I certainly know where you’re coming from! I’ve had so many computer troubles over the years that I scaled down my online activity to practically nil, just in case. I’ve only recently gotten back in to commenting on webcomics for fear that I’ll strike up a few friendly acquaintances only to disappear for months on end and look like a jerk, haha.
    If such a thing as good luck exists, I wish it all to you! 🙂

      Computers! They’re awesome, and then they explode. =P Gah.

      The good luck seems to have helped. If that was you helping it run smoothly, I thank you.
