Alright, it’s a quote. Who Said it? Where? When? Yes, it’s a movie quote. For ‘Where’ I am looking for the movie name. For bonus points tell me where in the movie?
And now it’s time for Modem Problems by Matthew McAndrews. First, an apology. I forgot to upload the new strip pages to the website yesterday. And I don’t have time to do it right now. I will update it when I get home. So this time if you are reading this before 7pm PT on Friday the 28th of December 2007, the link to the Dec 27’th strip is going to be broken.
Also, I am working on doing a face lift for the Modem Problems site. It will mostly look the same, but be fractionally better. Most of the updates will be behind the scenes, but allows for some new content to be coming soon! But in the meantime, the old ‘index’ method of viewing all the strips will be broken. It will be back, under ‘The Archive’, but not immediately.
Health and Well-Being: Nothing changed from last week. Except a lot more relaxation time.
Eve Online: Still playing. All three of my characters have gotten quite skilled. My ‘main’ is now earning more ISK fighting things and selling the wreckage she collects after the battles than my miner does mining asteroids all day. I’ve started to enjoy the PvE aspects of the game now. And the PvP aspects have not slapped me down yet. I’ve been playing this a little more as the Winter Event on CoX gets in the way of things on that game. So, at the moment, the $ I am paying for this game is worth it to me.
City of Heroes/Villains: As mentioned above, the Winter Event that is going on has sort of stalled some of my interest in the City. All the things I mentioned in last week’s post are true. Nothing truly new with this Winter Event, and just going through the Baby New Year mission again and again and again is not of interest to me, really. Though I have been going through all my characters on all the servers and making sure they have this year’s Winter Event badge (just for connecting to the game). While I was at it, I have been playing through one mission with each of them, and getting their tray and panels set up for the way I currently like to play the game. But all in all, the Winter Event has taken more out of the game than it has added… for me. I look forward to when it is over and people will be ready to continue on missions like we were doing before the Winter Event.
Well, that’s really it. I have work today, so I need to get going. I want to get the work day dealt with so I can get back to working on the Modem Problems site. It’s a lot of repetitive work, as it involves rewriting 440 html pages. But when I am done, I will be able to update the site without having to upload so very many pages. The only side effect is that it’s going to break all the links in my journals to the images when I am done… and so all those journal entries will have to be edited to point to things correctly. But it’s all worth it! And will allow the site to grow in content and quality in the future, as it will make the old pages not need ANY changes every time I add a new strip… unlike the current design.

Thanks for reading… time for me to get to work… last work day for me for the year! I’ll write again next week.
