Help stop policeware! (Off-topic)

Postby FistBuzzsaw on Sat Dec 28, 2002 5:15 pm

This has nothing to do with webcomics, but it effects every one of you who are reading this right now. In case you haven't heard, certain members of the American government are attempting to pass a bill demanding that all new operating systems include government-approved "policeware". This would prevent ordinary people from downloading so-called "illegal" files, which, by the way, are perfectly harmless. You can face five years in prison and a $500, 000 fine just for downloading an mp3, as well as whatever the government doesn't like. And that's a lot of things.

There is a petition at that Americans can sign to help protect privacy. I can't sign it since I'm not American, but there are thousands of Americans who visit Keenspace. If every American here signs that petition, and then passes it on by word of mouth, the privacy of your average computer user might just be saved.

You posted to a zombie forum with only three people (four if Meyers tunes in from time to time to laugh his ass off at his loser fans). Great way to spread the word. What's wrong with "legs"?

Oops. Guess I was wrong on the number of viewers estimate. Looks like over 10 people take a little time out of their lives (that you'll never ever get back) to check in here.

Seriously, has anyone heard anything about Meiers? I emailed Clint Hollingsworth (Wandering Ones strip), who's posted here before but haven't heard anything else from him on what's happened. Mayber Meiers is in a coma, in a hospital, after getting run over by a cliche?

no, I'm not in a coma...

Although, compared with what I've been going through the last 6 months, a friggin' coma doesn't really sound all that bad...

Since July (when I posted the last "new" comic), things have been rough on me, at least by my standards. The comic had always found a way to continue during my previous bouts with misfortune, but this time I had to take it off the plate. Ultimately, I will return to some sort of regular updating again, but probably not for a while longer. Sorry...

I'm especially sorry for not offering some sort of explanantion as to my disappearence. Especially considering how long it has gone on now.

I am still drawing, and logging new ideas for future comics, and really, why would I be doing that if I wasn't planning on returning, right?

See you guys soon...

Great to hear from you. Am sorry to hear big problems. Anything we might be able to do to help?

we are really contemplatives

bump up

I believe that we are not real social workers. We may be doing social work in the eyes of the people, but we are really contemplatives in the heart of the world. For we are touching the body of Christ twenty-four hours…And I think that in our family we don’t need bombs and guns, to destroy, to bring peace, just get together, love one another, bring that peace, that joy, that strength of presence of each other in the home. And we will be able to overcome all the evil that is in the world.
