Wow. Never thought I'd see somebody post in this forum anytime soon. Well, so far so good. Things are still going well. Much better than this time last year. I'm due for my one year review. Working in the IT Department is pretty nice. I do get paid decently, but remember, it's government (local gov. at that) so it's definitely not a killing. In the last year I've picked up quite a bit when it comes to web development. My skillset used to br primarily of a graphic and fine art bent- but in the year I've been working here I have picked up quite a bit of ColdFusion and learned some PHP as well. Keep an eye out for a new Barclay site design (if I can get the KeenLords to grant me either PHP or SSI) that will hopefully quicken up the load time and streamline the site. From there... who knows. I've thought about penning some more Barclay stuff. Gotten an idea here and there. Maybe in the coming year I'll stop being so apathetic and do something.
PS: Thanks for writing. As one of the underlooked originals (by original I mean first 25 comics) I really do appreciate any bones thrown my way, as long as they're not at my eyes.
