TWC is not Waterproof

Few Things

Time Warner Cable is not waterproof. When it rains, there's a very real chance that I'll go without internet service until the rain lets up and, I can only assume, my neighborhood's hub has had a chance to dry up. And it's not just me, everyone in my neighborhood that's with Time Warner loses internet. Others show a very noticeable decline in connection speed and quality. What gives, Time Warner? Not enough plastic bags to cover up the works? Rainy weather tends to keep people indoors. While indoors, people nowadays tend to entertain themselves with the internet. What about the rain is preventing you from delivering on your agreement to provide customers with internet service? Am I expecting too much from you, Time Warner?

Today's the last strip I'm doing as Squishy Comic's regular writer. I think Squishy is unique as I don't know of any other webcomic that's had as many writers as this one. Here's a bit of trivia you may not be aware of: Arturo was the first writer for Squishy Comics WAAAY back when. In 2002-ish, Squishy Comics went live for a few months, with Arturo as the writer, James as the tech guy, and me as, well, you can probably guess. Sadly, real life got in the way back then, and it wasn't until many years later that Squishy was given another go, with Dan as the lead writer. Mike and I both had our stints after Dan. I thank each one of the previous writers for their contributions to the strip, and I thank you readers for following us through each transition.

Admittedly, while I have some talent as an illustrator, I have nothing beyond basic literacy when it comes to the craft of writing. So, starting Monday, Squishy Comics will be featuring someone who has devoted a great deal of himself to the written word. Also, unlike before, this writer is not from the Squishy crew, so this guy benefits from being able to see the Squishy cast from several steps back. I.E., he doesn't give a rat's ass that these characters are based on real people, he sees them for who and what they are within their own world, so he'll bring a much needed breath of fresh air to the strips. His name's Paul Yim. You may know him as "Trebuchet" on the forums, and you can check out his movie reviews here.

See you on Monday.
