On this day, 24 years ago, I was born! It's a strange feeling, this... getting older. It's distinctly different from the feeling I got as a teenager, when I was always looking forward to my next celebration. There's no denying it now - I really am an adult. This year, for the first time, I am considered an independent in the eyes of the law (as far as my college is concerned, anyway).
Yet, I don't feel like an adult. To be honest, I'm still not sure how an adult is supposed to feel. Often times, I find myself pretending to do what I assume are mature things normal adults do. However, In my head my self-image hasn't caught up yet. It still wants to think I'm the same kid who, 8 years ago, put pencil to paper and started drawing comics for the first time while watching cartoons on TV. And I'm not sure I want that to change.
I'm happy how my life has been turning out so far, and I'm constantly thankful for the opportunities I've had. And while I know growing up is all part of the process, I think I still want to continue secretly enjoying Saturday morning cartoons and drawing comics til all hours of the night. I guess the only thing I can really do is wait and see what the future has in store for me in my next 24 years of life. So thanks for all of you aging along with me. I'll see you there. :)
As some of you might have noticed, the forums were having some problems today. The server which hosts the forums went down for what was suspected to be an update, but in the process interrupted the database. It resulted in the loss of the forum's topics data. On top of that, the forums were not properly backed up, and thus could not be restored. However, thanks primarily to the work of chatroom resident ktemkin, the topics were restored by referencing the post data, which remained intact. It took nearly the whole day, but eventually, the forum was completely put back together. And from now on I've learned my lesson - daily backups are being made to preserve forum data in the future. I also want to thank AJ for providing his backup data, and avwolf for his insight on the problem.
Now that the forums have been rebuilt, everything can go back to normal. Unfortunately, working on this problem has put me behind on my normal duties as comic artist. I apologize - and I promise the comic will be up as soon as I manage to finish it. On an unrelated note, tomorow is my birthday! So, as a result of this minor delay, you guys will likely find an update right on my yearly celebration of birth, on July 28th. See you then!
There's going to be a small delay before the next page is posted. I was caught up in work and couldn't start drawing until quite late Tuesday night. I've worked for as long as I could, but I had to stop at 5am to take a nap. I'll start back up and get it finished once I wake up Wednesday. It should be up Wednesday night/ Thursday morning.
Edit: Okay, new comic is up now! Enjoy!
Another down! Just ten more to go before I'm caught up. Hopefully I'll be able to plow through them pretty fast now that school is out. I'm excited to get this chapter underway so expect more to come.
Good news! Thanks to the help of aj - whom you might remember as the person who also optimized the archives a while back - the RSS feed is once again supplying the necessary links to current and past pages. For those of you who rely on RSS feeds for your comic-viewing pleasure, I hope you will enjoy this re-established feature. And for all of those who sent emails offering support, I truly appreciate it.
