Veronica’s Commentary

Once again, posting without Taeshi makes things hard when I have to come up with a page description! Instead, I’ll use this post to quickly explain WHAT TOOK SO LONG

The site is now running on a new server, one of Joyent’s new Solaris things. So it should be faster and nicer! More importantly, I took this opportunity to add a few things to the site. You’ll notice that your comments are automatically converted into proper punctuation (smart quotes), that badly written tags aren’t going to break the layout anymore, and that links are automatically linkified. Also, once we get more than 15 comments, some will be hidden so the page loads faster and is easier to catch up on—but don’t be discouraged from commenting, the last five comments are always visible and an Expand button makes everything appear instantly! You’ll also notice there’s a voting link section for you to patronise. Try it out! If you wonderful people can click daily, perhaps we’ll get a lot of hits out of it.. so in exchange, we’ll start posting incentive sketches on the Top Webcomics site. Besides all this, there’s a special iPhone (and other similar touchscreen device) version of the site only visible from such devices, please check it out. It’s a good way to catch up on chapters in the archive, as it loads a bunch of pages at once. Beside all this, there have been a few minor tweaks to pages in the archive, though nothing of consequence. There’s more to do on the site (specifically, fixing RSS, adding a forum, adding comments support to the iPhone version, and other things) but this should tide you over for now — and make comments a lot nicer to use.

Anyway, enjoy the first page of the chapter. It’s a good one! —SuitCase

Dunno if this was on purpose or not, but it looks like Yashy is in the upper right of that poster like “Wait what. No! Get me outta here!”

I think she has the pictures of McCain because remember when she held that meeting of forgotten characters McCain and her got along really well? Not sure if they like each other or not, but I know they are friends.

Nice page. Though I wonder at Sue using a paper and pencil for a final draft at this computer age. Surely she could have typed up something on MS Word instead of having to scrunch up a bunch of papers?

SAVE THE TREES!
