I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Kota's World might not be updated for a few days. Yesterday there was a storm, and the power went out at Kevin's house. Aparently, when the power came back on it took out his computer's power supply, and fried his primary hard drive. He didn't loose any comics, just his OS and programs. Please bear with us in this time of great loss.<P><P>------------------

Does anyone still doubt Kev's identity as the REAL Disasterboy now?
OTOH, Kota ol' bean, you failed to observe the First Law of Home Computing...when there are storms in the area the puter MUST be off AND unplugged. Modem too.
A rather harsh reminder.
Luckily the OS, programs and drivers are easy to reload, and none of the irreplaceable stuff was lost (I hope!)<P>Get well soon, effendi!

Hey folks. I'm in the process of replacing my lost stufflies at the moment. I realize this is inconvenient, but at least it was during Guest Week! Hopefully all will be back to normal in time for next week.<P>Kev<P>------------------

Hey! Does that mean you don't plan to run the Guest Strips??? Dang, it took me 4 hours to do that thing, even if it doesn't look it!<P>You have a fine career ahead of you as an editor, Kevbo <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>Come to think of it, can't you run the updates from one of the other guys' puters? Mike did say the comics survived...

Actually, they'll be picking up again tomorrow! I didn't get one for Wednesday from Max, so we were a day short and I'm just gonna save Warren's until he sends me a completed version of his. We pick back up tomorrow with Greg's!<P>------------------

He did say on Sunday that his powers were causing him problems. Maybe you should just stick to drawing Kev, and keep your powers away from anything likely to break. <P>------------------

Congrats on a quick recovery. It must help knowing these puter geeks! *L*
As for the comics, you really ARE getting valuable editorial experience if half of them are late.
