Whoa, double interrobang. This is getting serious here.
Well, new work schedule has me working over Labor Day Weekend. Crumbs. On the plus side, working on a holiday means time-and-a-half pay. On the other hand, this may impact my update schedule if I have less time to work. Just to play it safe, I’m calling the next update for Thursday.
Ace, hope you’re feeling better!
EDIT: Sorry, everyone. I called the new work schedule throwing me off, but what I didn’t anticipate was Rosh Hashanah ALSO throwing me off. I need one more day with this thing. So, l’shanah tovah to all of you, as well as my sincerest apologies, and comic comes up Friday.
Ace was right. This does not seem good.
Sounds like he should set fire to the mayor’s car….
We will see how that goes.
Or will Angelkitty be sent as protector for the mayor?
I’m pretty sure the best protector for the mayor at this point is his would-be assassin’s own bad luck. 😉
Or the total disinterest of the assassin in harming anyone.
He just wants a large explosion with a big dark cloud springing up from it.
Apart from blowing up a mayors car, this looks exactly like my first
Only that I had to find the troubleshooting documentation myself. Any
documentation, actually. And nobody told me about a plan b.
I feared being forced to draw it out of thin blue air on the fly,
since I had only the foggiest idea of my objective.
Remember, all relation of the current strip to my current job is purely coincidental.
But BOY is it coincidental!
Nice to see I’m not the only one!
I’m perfectly fine; the operation went very well. But the eye still doesn’t focus properly yet, and it feels as if I’ve got a huge piece of grit stuck in it, but I *mustn’t* rub it. I can only look at a computer screen for maybe ten minutes at a time, and then I have to close my eye. It’s very hard to just keep one eye closed – the other one keeps trying to close also. Which means I wind up lying down in a darkened room with both eyes closed… and that is SO BORING! As soon as I can, I”m going to buy an audiobook reader…
So, that spherical thing was an EYE?
Well, I guess that hatched area was supposed to be the iris, then. And I thought the iriscedence is just an artifact of the pseudo-color processing.
But you’re alive and, by and large, well. Aren’t you?
I say! The AI of that surgical bot is pretty impressive. Don’t you agree?
What a shame that the source code is not available, since the documentation ain’t much and is in some places downright misleading.
If you’re talking about my Gravatar, that’s a LiveJournal user icon, designed to be used at 100×100 pixels, shrunk down to whatever Gravatar uses as a standard. It’s a photo of a calligraphic button that says “Don’t try to outweird me.”
And the surgery was performed by a live human being; I was awake through the whole process. Fortunately, he’s far more skilled than the (presumed) human being who did the original cataract surgery ten years ago. That one failed, and has now been repaired.
Ace! Glad to see you again! But yeah, if all this computer time is affecting your eye, best to limit ‘net time until you’re better. I think if you focus too hard and it falls out, you void your warranty. 🙁
It won’t fall out – but it might fall *in*. That was what the doctor told me about the old implant; it had gotten so far out of position, it was in danger of falling *inside my eyeball*, which would take a far more complicated operation to fix.
But, yeah, I can only stare into the screen for a few minutes at a time before I have to rest the eye. It’s getting better every day, though. And your strip was one of the very first things I looked at, as soon as I could look at anything! (LiveJournal and Gunnerkrigg Court were next.)
Meanwhile… it seems as if Lolo is setting up Demonkitty to fail, for diabolical reasons of her own, no doubt. Fortunately, he has a guardian Angelkitty… maybe….
Ace, I didn’t know that you had a operation in real effing live.
Please take my apology for my poor sense of humor.
No offense taken. I try to maintain my sense of humor as much as possible. I had two unrelated forms of cancer, last year and the year before, which were cured by surgery and radiation. I got myself a T-shirt with the yellow-and-purple symbol for radiation on it, and wore it to my radiation treatments. And a friend of mine gave me nail decals that said “FUCK CANCER!” 😀
Thursday! Where is my beloved comic!
ahhh, junkie going crazy here!
(Are you alright?)
