I've been planning on resuming new strips on Tuesday, but I'm going to have a big problem achieving that. Last week (a day or two after the hiatus began), I upgraded my machine to WinXP. Although it's the most amazing OS I've seen with the letters "MS" attached to it, it's not supported by my scanner. Stupid parallel port.<P>I discovered that pretty quickly, and immediately went about ordering a new scanner (intending to sell this old one to someone who's using Win9x). Unfortunately, that order's not going to come in until the middle of next week. Suffice it to say, I likely won't have a scanner on Monday night.<P>If this is the case, I'm going to have to figure some way of getting the comic(s) scanned so it can go up on Tuesday. I have a feeling Business Depot might be my only recourse, unless I can find a friend and get to his/her place somehow in time.<P>Anyways... I guess the entire point of this is that, if there isn't a new comic up on Tuesday, it's not my fault. ;-)<P>JOSH.<P>------------------

I've got dibs on your scanner if you're selling it for a reasonable price, Josh! How much? <P>------------------

I have a scanner.<P>Though I'm not sure if any of my family would be pleased if some stranger came to our house and asked to borrow it...

Those emoticons can be pretty heavy.
When you take them out, the posts feel a lot lighter.
