BRIGHT house?

My Cable Internet provider - Brighthouse - is busy demonstrating why American companies are losing their competitive edge overseas (I'll give you a hint - most Americans don't know the difference between theory and hypothesis). As such, I have no internet. Should The situation regarding Brighthouse change, I'll alert you all without delay.

Should the situation with the American education system change, I'll be making snow angels with Lucifer.

Even odds as to which will happen first.

What one can accomplish in 24 hours.

About twenty hours of work.

That's it. Despite my best efforts to the contrary, apparently one needs to sleep. Funny, it happens whether you want it to or not.


I'm doing strips and trying to get them finished and posted but I am allowed between fifteen and thirty minutes a day to devote to my craft. Tonight I'll post a new strip. Monday's strip. It is likely that I will have time tomorrow to get two strips done and caught up by Friday.

Oh what dreams...

Avast ye!

As this be INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY, I intend to confound and bewilder any and all folks with whom I parlay this day.

Yee Hardy! Hoist that Main sail! Look lively ye scurvy dogs! Bring us about and set us into the wind!

Perhaps I be needin' an eye patch!

Maybe two!

When done isn't DONE.

So my deadline was met. Then in a burst of inhuman cruelty, I was given not a paycheck, but another week to achieve additional goals. Based on the work I had completed, the scope of the project...well...was expanded.

So now I have a larger task to be completed in less time. Having already given up sleep and food, I find that the only area left to cut out of my time includes Vexxarr.

So as soon as I finish destroying my life with ACTION SCRIPT, I'll upload some Vexxarr for you. At least I get to double my rate for this...

It's not enough.

Vexxarr later today

I'm still laboring under the onus of Action script. I lost what amounts to a day to inaccurate documentation. You'll have to ask the (extremely young) boys over at Adobe for me why all of their official tutorial information reads:

"select the keyframe in the Interactions layer that contains the
question preceding the interaction you are about to insert,"

While an amateur third party site offered the more helpful and more specifically accurate:

"Select a frame across all layers of the timeline (except the layers with items
that are supposed to appear only on specific frames such as the opening

I took away from this that Adobe doesn't actually know a great deal about FLASH. The giveaway for me was the posting of instructions which are specifically and functionally damaging not only in print but and across several individual pdf documents from their official site.

I'll say this: it's the first decent argument I've encountered against piracy of Adobe products - don't steal Adobe. You'll loose your F_____G mind!

I have a beard.

I've been working in FLASH action script for nearly five days now.


Without breaks or interruption.

I find that action script is poorly documented and that FLASH has a tiny problem with displaying any script associated with a given frame, instance or movie.

I long for death.

I bought the FLASH 8 professional Bible Sunday. It said only one thing.

Late, Late, Late

I'm teaching myself FLASH (again). So I'll have a comic up tomorrow. Things progress on the shirt front and a new archive is on its way.

In other news, I'm told that that the Sci Fi channel is distancing itself from Sci Fi programming. See, the network is actually part of the USA family of networks. The programming executives don't "get" us and think we like Megasnake and cow patties of its ilk. I am told that any treatment involving spaceships, time travel or robots gets directed toward the circular filing cabinet.

I'm thinking that we may need to let them know that we watch shows about spaceships, robots and Aliens and unless they start showing us a little love, our DVD dollars are all heading like guided missiles over to the BBC.

by the way, been watching Jekyll?
