Sorta bonus comic
We are loath to publish strips on a Friday night, as the audience for that is... well... nillish. So loath are we, in fact, that you might say we loathe the practice.
But we did one anyway and rather than save it for Monday, we went ahead and, with much enthusiasm, posted the shit out of it.
It is here that you see what's up with Bobbo and World of Warcraft. This time the tables have turned, or shifted, or been rendered legless, or however that expression goes. When it comes to WofW, it is I, not PJ, who is the true sloth when judging the influences upon these simian characters.
While you're there, please vote for us on Buzzcomix. We're slipping out of the top 100, and that is very dangerous for our egos.

During the great Terribly Happy Blackout of 2005, another new Space Monkeys! strip was posted, along with some associated news posts, which are much more fun to do now on the new layout/system.
After some troubles with what should have been a simple domain transfer, Terribly Happy is back.
It's sort of nice to have other places to write when this site goes down, sort of like emergency writing bunkers for when there's a personal network disaster.
Speaking of disasters, I'd been downloading some Howard Stern archived episodes from a newsgroup (my commute: it is long. It is uneventful.) and stumbled upon the 9/11 and 9/12 broadcasts from 2001. It was chilling to hear a normal Howard Stern episode suddenly turn into a chaotic, heartbreaking news program. It's over five hours long and it's sort of been very strange to have my mind in that place this week, reliving the uncertainty of those hours when none of us knew how much longer or how much more devastating the attacks could get.
This is the counterbalance to having this really nice week where we celebrated the one-year anniversary of ˇahora sí!. I grouse about work sometimes, but they were nice enough to throw us a little part complete with non-alcoholic margaritas, pan de polvo, mariachis, some dancers from Roy Lozano's Ballet Folklorico and even pinatas that HR wouldn't allow people to hit with the bat they brought us.
I've also been heavy into World of Warcraft lately, so if anyone wants to party, I'm "Oakface" on the Dark Iron server. Yep, the one that's been flooded with Penny Arcade players. I'm the CTS Dojo guild.
And that's it for now. Thanks to the folks who gave me feedback in the iBook issue. I think I'm going to take the plunge, maybe as early as this weeken.d

Nope, it didn't get ganked.
Over the weekend, Terribly Happy was down for a bit because I accidentally changed a setting in Network Solutions that I shouldn't have. No big. It's changed back.
I am transferring the domain over to a new registrar, though, so that may cause some wonkiness in the next few days. Don't worry. I'm renewed through like 2007 at least.
