Well, I'm still not happy with the page redesign. I'll probably move the entry to another page, but I'll put a nice link ABOVE the strip that'll tell you when the entry was last updated. How's that?

In other news, you may or may not have noticed that I converted the entire Schlock archive to PNG format. Why? Well, the PNG format reduced the size of my graphics by an average of 27%, and my graphics were already pretty well optimized. If you can't see the comic, it's because you have an old browser, or because the browser is letting another plug-in (like QuickTime) handle the PNG files, and the plug-in is failing.

So, if you can't see the comic, email me. I'll do everything I can short of visiting your house personally to help you get back on track. You may need to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. Right now it looks like there are about 3,000 Schlock readers out there, and I've been emailed exactly twice about PNG problems.

Finally, I'd just like to say that I need to get seriously busy. The buffer is at 13 days (as of Monday morning at 12:00 am Eastern Time) which is one day BELOW my acceptable minimum. I've taken too much time away from the strip and need to figure out how to hold the pen again.
