Apologies for the uncharacteristic radio silence regarding VFQuest. I was hoping
to get this issue sorted out last week, hence my unfulfilled promise for a Saturday update, but nothing's ever simple.
I wear glasses, and my vision without them is pretty awful. Unfortunately, my glasses are busted. As a result it's gotten very difficult to work at the computer, particularly for the long hours required to do comics--I'll spare you the details but currently I can only focus one eye on the screen at a time which has interesting effects on my technique. I saw the optician yesterday and paid for new glasses (thank you, people who bought minipaintings recently), but after
I'd coughed up the money they told me it will take up to two weeks to get them. If I am lucky they will arrive on the exact day I need to leave, which will bring the total downtime to over a month.
I do not want to leave things dead for that long, so I think my only option at this point is to make it happen, somehow
. I can probably work in short shifts if I'm careful. One update a week might be manageable, and of course VFPrime will be sitting pretty on its buffer for a good couple of months yet."And that, Frodo, is the end of my account. May Elrond and the others forgive the length of it. But such a thing has not happened before, that Gandalf broke tryst and did not come when he promised. An account to the Ring-Bearer of so strange an event was required, I think."
