A belated Merry Christmas!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed the holiday and what time I got to spend with my family, even though I had to work most of the day.

I had intended to post more coming up to the holiday. However, it has been very busy at home and thus I did not get all that much accomplished online.

Heck, I did not even finish my gift wrapping until the night before.

Happy Holidays!

Missing Comments

One of the nice things abut having a Blogger ID is that I can leave comments on other blogs. 

Well, I could do it before but this makes it much easier. 

However, I've noticed a disturbing trend.  Many of my posts are not showing up.  I'm not too sure why. 

What do you do when your post does not show up?  Re-post it would be the most obvious, but often I don't realize that it's not posted until several days after the fact. 

Gareb Shamus

I read a lot of web comics.  One in particular is "Gutters" which is written by Ryan Sohmer.  Recently they did a comic on how Gareb Shamus, affiliated with Wizard World, has been able to "destroy" every thing that he's dealt with.  Kind of like the revers Midas Touch. 

Now "Gutters" uses a rotating pool of artist talent.  Apparently, Gareb Shamus threatened the artist who drew the original comic at their full time job, and said artist requested that the strip be taken down. 

You can see the replacement strip here. 

Gutters - Issue #222

Parody is parody.  Get a thicker skin. 

And I agree with Sohmer.  Don't threaten a part time employee at their place of full time employment.  Go to the publisher instead.

Checking in

Thus, I've been away a bit.  Mostly due to Thanksgiving.  More so due to my daughter.  Hard to type when she want's to be in my lap or when she just wants attention. Not that I'm upset with that.  Everything comes second to my daughter.  Including cleaning.  And raking the leaves.  And changing the belts on my wife's car... 

OK, my daughter is very important to me!  And I'm getting behind in my chores at the house.  But the dishes are clean!   

I've had plenty of ideas on what to write.  Just little opportunity.
