What's happened, of late...

Postby Aaron M. Holm, esquire on Fri Jun 21, 2002 7:20 am

Hey, all.

Just wanted to give you a situation update, since a lot of you haven't read my LJ lately, and I figured this might be another way of getting the word out.

Two weeks ago, my Computer had a debilitating stroke, and would addle through even the most simple functions as if it was supposed to take weeks to change the damn desktop background. So, I had to take it to the Mom & Pop Computer repair shop to get the hard drive wiped and start over from scratch. It's been since repaired, although the repair guy said that he wasn't able to get my modem up & working again... And, the driver disk to my scanner is MIA. Subsequently, strips are drawn and ready to put up, but at this point, I can neither scan, upload, or even post up a notice on the site that I can't meet deadline, due to technical problems, which is yet another reason why I'm once again behind.

I hate to keep making excuses for myself. I hate that I'm not able to be consistent because real life keeps getting in the way. More is going on than I'm even telling you all, and I gotta tell you that it's really hard to keep being jazzed up about doing strips that are costing me more than I'm getting in return and are sucking up what little bits of free time I have. I'm sorry that my stuff tends to be disappointing to you all because of my continued absences and flubs. I AM working on strips, and I DO plan on returning, once I get these problems solved. I do this stuff because I love drawing and enjoy sharing my work with others, and I WILL get back on that horse, once again. :cry:

Bummer....

Well as long as your using your 'free time' to build up a nice reserve of future strips once you do get back up....

I understand that Jeff Darlington of GPF started predrawing his strips, partially in anticipation of his current storying and is now about 8 to 12 weeks ahead on his strips....

No worries

As long as your not dead or something, then I will not worry about the delays. I just want to keep reading your comic, and as long as your still planning on doing it then I will keep checking back.

OK, here's an update.

We're on the right track now!

I've got my modem working again, so getting the scanner to work shouldn't be too far behind. Thanks to everyone who's stuck with me during this current mess.

Help if I can...

Dude both my wife and I find your strips to be damn funny and although I can't draw stick figures myself, I see the effort my son expends on his work. So tell ya what. Tell me what kinda scanner you got and I'll look for the drivers for ya. Seems the least I can do. Well not the least, plenty enough ppl doing that already apparently. Heck might even get lucky and have it turn out you use a scanner I already have drivers for...

OK, here's a NEW update.

Scanner's working again! Everything's in running order. All I need to do now is get my uploading info again from the 'Spot Mucka-Mucks, and I'll be back to updating again this week!

Thanks to everyone who's been behind me on this. I really appreciate this and the fact that I'm back again is because of your support.

Cheers,

- A.
