Bloblog? Blob log… blow blog? bloblob?

The title of this blog is pronounced ‘Blob-log’ and not ‘Blow-blog’ btw. Glad we finally cleared that one up!

Hrrrm… Maybe I need to re-do my little blog banner there, just to make it a bit clearer…

Grrr… Major downtime for the site today… and not so much as a word of explanation from the host company.  No acknowledgement …nowt!  My first thought was that they’d fallen prey to the ravenous recession currently stalking the land, and that they’d never be heard from again, stuffing what’s left of their loot into their 2007 Audi A8 and torching our (my) files before making a dash for Greenland, and debtor’s asylum. Three hours later things were back to normal… again without so much as a word!  I could have sworn I heard nonchalant whistling, faintly, somewhere in the tubes, but it might have been in my mind…

Beset by Pedants!

Thank you to all those sharp eyed folk out there who noticed that in the last panel of last week’s comic (December 12th), Faraday was speaking into the telephone receiver upside down!

It’s amazing that you can look at something for literally hours, and not spot such a basic and glaring mistake… Gah! I checked the archives, and lo and behold in the strip of September 26th (‘Darth Blob‘), Faraday is using that very same phone in the correct manner… oops.

Keep up the good work folks. Keep me on my toes!

Happy Yew Near

Well – here we are in the far future again – Happy new year to you all!

2008 was a mixed bag, but it certainly had its moments – saw some cool places and fulfilled some lifelong ambitions.  And finally got this site up and running, which I think was the one new year’s resolution I made…

This year? keep it up and running!

I plan to refer to next year as Twenty-Ten, because it sounds futuristic!  Just one more year to finally confirm whether or not Arthur C. Clarke (RIP ’08) was talking complete horse most of the time or not!

Have a good ’09 folks!

Ps: Apologies for the downage over the last few days, my host company were victims of a massive DDOS attack, apparently.
