This is just a raw deal. I stayed up till 1 am working on the comic, and I run into the same uploading problem as I had with Lena’s. So, I suppose it’s going to have to wait till tomorrow morning at work. If dialup is going to do this to me now, I’m going to have to do the upload-at-work thing until the 9th, when our DSL will be operational again. :( Sorry about that, guys. I want to keep the comic up with a degree of professionalism that is eluding me at the moment, and it bugs the crap out of me. *sigh* I’ll see you guys tomorrow morning at 8 am PST.

Allright, now I’m pissed. There are a few things about ioncomix i DON’T like. One of these is the uploading protocols. For some reason, if you try to upload a somewhat large file (depending on your connection speed, I’ll wager), if it takes too long, it will simply cut you off and not let the file finish. Due to my extremely slow dialup connection, this means that I cannot upload the strip for today. At least, not from here. I’ll have to wait till tomorrow morning at work to upload both today’s guest strip and tomorrow’s strip. Oh, and no, I don’t have FTP. *sighs* This is just looking to be a crappy morning, and I’m sorry to have to do all this, but I don’t have a choice. *grumbles* Anyway, take care, guys. See you tomorrow morning, i guess. *kicks ioncomix in the ass*

Hey folks… update on the strip situation for today.

So, as many of you know, this weekend (specifically, sunday) was moving weekend for us. I knew this, and attempted to work on monday’s strip whilst at work on friday. Unfortunately, for some reason everyone in the great state of California decided that the Rancho Murieta Airport was the happenin’ place to be, and I got very little more than the dialogue written, even while trying all day long to work on it. And I didn’t get another chance to work on it, either friday night, saturday night, or last night, despite trying desperately to do so.

So, last night as she headed home, our friend Lena said she would do a guest strip for me. Thanks to my e-mail situation, i told her to PM me the link through the forums, but it seems this morning that geocities is being a total bastard and not letting me download the image. So, crap. :(

Wait..wait…this just in… we got the guest strip, and are ready to roll! Mmkay…putting it up now, and new stuff should be arriving tomorrow as usual. :D Take care, guys!
