January = unnecessary

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Still January it seems …a cold and thoroughly pointless month stuck between the fun of Christmas and the brighter evenings & vague optimism of February.  It seems you can’t ignore it, though I have tried.  Maybe I should start a petition to have it abolished… Hmm…

Technical Difficulties!

Don’t worry, don’t worry – There is a new comic on the way today!  Please check back in the afternoon.

Thanks for your patience!

*Edit* …and here it is!

Mind the corners

The technical diffiiculties referred to below have been at least partially resolved – my trusty old laptop is back from hospital and seems to be working again…  It seemed to be having critical graphic issues that were preventing Vista from loading.  It was diagnosed with a damaged motherboard, but when I asked the guy what might have caused it (y’know, to avoid repeating the trick), he suggested I might have ‘put it down on a corner’.  I’m not sure that’s a thing you can actually do, but in any event he was able to repair it so how and ever.

It’s been carried around the world and has been through so many airport/security scanners that I’m surprised it’s lasted as long as it has.  the only problem now is that Vista had to re-installed, so I have to put everything back on and download all the service packs and updates from Microsoft all over again – Zzzzz.

Congratulations to my sister Orla and her husband Paul on the birth of their son Colum on Wednesday! I know he’s only two days old, but I expect him to be clicking onto this site for his very first dose of Blob action today…
