Howdy folks,

Another busy week, I ended up working a double shift on Saturday, so I wasn't able to stay up and finish the page I was working on. That also meant Sunday was a slow day for me as I needed to catch up on a little sleep, so I didn't get as much done as I would have liked.

My computer gave me a small heart attack when it shut down while I was coloring strip 40. As it turns out there was a glitch with the wacom tablet, and it took me a while to figure out what I needed to do to get my computer to boot up again. I ended up having to unplug the tablet. That seems to work, and now I only plug back in when I'm working with it. I had recently saved my work, so I only lost the last 30 minutes  which wasn't a big deal since mostly I was cleaning up the shade work. Everything seems to be working fine now and I'm grateful for that!

In even better news, Fridays strip went over really well with a lot of people, and sparked a couple of discussions about the good old days of MMO's and doing a corpse run to retrieve your gear. By the end of the week I had even managed to hit the #3 spot on the 'Popular Now' page, right behind Mad Dog and Datachasers! (Which are two really great strips you should be reading. I do!)

This week I am back at the drawing board since I have caught up on all the inked pages I had scanned in. I'm hoping to get three pages done this week, but I do have a few plans on my days off. I want to go see the new Judge Dredd movie, and I have a D&D game Friday night.

Other than that, things have been going pretty well, the comic is getting some attention and I'm happy with the art and story. All and all, I am having a pretty darn good time with this!

I hope everyone has a great week, and I will see you next update!
