An update on the current crisis: Because of how we produce our comics, I'm going to have to inspect all 365 photographic plates* of all the comics published in the last year, each and every one, individually. Do you know how long it takes to make one of those plates? And do you know how long it takes to re-factor one? Until that fault is rectified, we're not going to be able to publish any more website polls**.
* Don't ask. We're working with some very old equipment here.
** Look, I didn't code the site. In fact, I didn't even know that the image delivery code even interacted with the web-poll code in that manner until last week!
