Hello boys and girls and men of all ages.
Yeah, this post is late again but I have a good excuse (again). The content management system I use is called "Grawlix". It works, and it was really really cheap, but the guy who made it moved on to bigger and better things (I can only presume) and so he stopped updating it. So, when PHP got updated to version 5.6, Grawlix just broke and all the pages returned a 500 error (totally blank).
I talked with my ISP and he fixed it and I thanked him for it.
In other news, gee whiz that virus from China is causing all kinds of trouble. One crisis at a time, I say. Let's address what's going on right now, and later on, we'll discuss other things.
In the meantime, I live in the sur-reality of American life. This has happened twice before, where a historical event provoked a range of emotional feelings. First was September 11th. I lived in Illinois at the time but all that week I was looking up and there were no planes in the sky, a reminder that this Islamic terrorist-driven mass murder had created a big effect. Second was the 2000 election. That dragged on until December, and I remember thinking that I wanted for there to be a President.
I'm practicing social distancing as best as I can. My neighbors sure aren't. The youth sure aren't. This is how people are, and I guess maybe this is why China ended up putting 50 million people under house arrest to stop the spread of this virus that they lied about for a month.
Or, to look at it another way, China locked down 3.6% of its entire population of 1.3 billion.
Also, in this week's page, I changed the dialog a little bit from the original. In the second panel Charles Biro had Iron Jaw say something like "Not yet, Rodent! If I'm goin', brother, you're going first." Using the word "brother" made iron Jaw's dialog sound too much like Daffy Duck, so I changed it to something a bit more German-y.
Okay, see you cowboys on Friday when we get back to a regular posting schedule. Saddle up! Yee haw!
