Congratulations on 900 episodes! Thanks to the archives, I think I've read them all at least twice.

I don't think your tactics work, Cap'n -- no-one here seems to be the least bit upset about the death of all these puppies. I think you need to find you something else to kill that people would be genuinely traumatised about.

That said, I'm surprised that you've not had the SPCA on your case by now ... they're going to give you something a lot less fun than Pamela Anderson and RoboReptiles ;-)

I can't believe I've read 900 episodes already. Now, if only we could get 900 episodes out of AY2K, all would be right with the world (a tedddt bear-dominated world, of course). [Smile]

Congrats!

You have cheated by two ways :

You use sometime same number, adding a letter
Some of your comics are recycled ones. For example, the one used last wesnesday has already been used in 2003. Lokk at the copyright and the old iMac G4 desk lamps. Do you thing Santa Claus would use so old computers ?

Wow... and the two are connected. They don't increment the number and add a letter instead when they re-use a comic, which would keep the number count in synch with the number of original comics. It's almost like it was planned to work out that way! [Roll Eyes]

(sorry for 'entering' twice but... grrrr)
