My screen was suddenly covered in jagged lines. The computer seemed to be working all right, but the monitor was paved in horizontal white lines. Quite pretty - but very unhelpful.

My techsupport (son) diagnosed that the graphics card had gone "pffft!" (this is apparently a technical term). Fortunately, I am well ahead with pages, so this isn't going to bring the comic to a grinding halt, but don't expect any new TWC voting incentives for a few days. Even so, please keep voting for it - it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to see people voting for Vale!

Tech support tells me a new graphics card is on its way from Amazon by pack mule and I should have my computer working again by the end of next week. I can survive without it. Honest. <ignore the shaking hands and twitches - they aren't withdrawal symptoms. Really.>

The last vote incentive is really nice anyway.

Withdrawal symptoms remedies: a walk in the woods, a good book by the fire, a few children laughs, a warm chocolate with marshmallows... (Hey, but don't forget to come back soon).

Thanks for the kind words! I have survived, and the new graphics card seems to be working. Phew!
