When i had trouble getting up Monday morning, i should have realized that my physical coil was desperately trying to tell me something. It could see what was coming, where my unobservant brain could not. It was going to be A Bad Day (TM).
It was a day where not one thing went wrong, but just about everything went wrong. It was one of those days where after a while when a new thing went plooie, it made me laugh. Each new disaster would give me a chuckle. It was a day where by the end of it, my stomach demanded Comfort Food, and even that tried to kill me (I almost choked on it).
I had debated telling the tale, as a kind of cathartic exercise to maybe promote healing, but... no, I can't bring myself to do it. The experience of it is still too close, too recent, and i need to think about positive things...
(... like the new Magical Girl Sasami-chan anime. That counts as a positive thing, right? Is it wrong that i really liked the Mahou Shoujo Pretty Sasami TV? I liked Misao, she always made me happy, even if she was a warui shoujou... i wonder if she's show up in the new series...)
Ok, I feel a little better now.
Well, the DSL here at the office is working again, which means that we were finally able to process and ship orders today. We apologize for the delay caused by this glitch, we had to scramble to could today to get everything out, but we managed it :)
We're almost ready to launch the new store, but there are a number of things i have GOT to get done before we can launch, and i have to get them done today. I'm going to take a cue from the fact that monday's comic didn't really go up till tuesday, and do the same thing with Wednesday's comic -- put it up on Thursday. Not sure if i will go for a comic on Friday too, it all depends on how smooth the transition is for the new store.
See, the MegaGear store is what supports this site, and in the crippled condition the current store is in... it's just not good. I feel very good about the new store -- the software is solid, it has a new look and feel that both Seraphim and I are much happier about, and frankly, i just want to get things moved over as soon as possible. This is our third store, and here's hoping that third time's a charm. :)
If all goes well, it should be up and the transition made within the next few days. Thanks for your patience and your support, and hopefully this time i can put the effort spent constantly building new stores into things like, products. Yeah. :P
