Now that the site exists again, I can start a proper comments page.  Stupid websites.

  3. Mercenary Pen: Hurrah! I was told it would take 24-72 hours to propagate, so it’s on schedule. It reached Newfoundland last night. No word yet on whether it’s hit Asia and Australia.

  4. ohh! mouseover works for me now on http://www.westofbathurst.com with chrome (I don;t know why it didn’t work before, but I was using “inspect element” to see the alt text.

  5. Rin: I asked my friend House to fix the alt-text error I had been making for seven years. I’ll post a note about it when I manage to get the Friday comic up.

  6. Still no Friday comic?

  7. Mercenary Pen: It’s coming. You need to understand that I was up for FORTY HOURS. I slept for quite a long time. Then I had some urgent spring-term-related stuff to do; for instance, one of my courses starts tomorrow, and until this afternoon, the information on the website was a year old. Students kept e-mailing me in puzzlement, but I couldn’t do anything about it because I was so far behind on the marking. Today, I’ve been working on that AND the comic. The comic is almost done; with luck, it will be up within the hour. I’m sorry for the delay, but sometimes, silly old paying work gets in the way.

  8. I can understand that (I know enough about paying work getting in the way of things)- I just wanted to check how things were progressing.

  11. It would appear that the penguins were not shiny enough Casey…

  12. One of theses days, Casey is going to create a distraction so shiny, so weird, so objecty, that the whole universe will collapse in on itself into the ultimate weird shiny object.

  13. Well, you can always try changing your voicemail greeting. That actually did it for my family, once. Our last name is Robbins, and someone kept calling wanting to know if Robin was there. So we had my dad record a new one, trying to make it clear that there was no one there under the name “Robin”, just a lot of people under “Robbins”. Seemed to work.

    Either that or you can get caller ID and have someone with a large, loud voice call them back and try to forcefully offer them a whopper.
