Still In Between Home Machines...

... and, between the time for delivery of the new all-in-one and the time that will be required to set everything up, I probably won't be able to post anything truly substantial until this coming weekend at the earliest. I WILL, however, provide some newsy notes:

(1) The first Stevenson home football game on Saturday night was an amazing experience. It would have been first-rate theater regardless of the outcome, but SU actually WON the game, a double-overtime thriller that ranks right up there with the ND-Michigan Harry Oliver game of 1980 as the best game I've ever seen in person. You can see pictures from it here. Nicky and I took some extended movies which I'll be converting into YouTube format and posting as soon as I can.

(2) My brother-in-law Terry was involved in two car crashes within the space of one week. Neither was his fault, and he wasn't seriously injured, but both of the family cars were totaled. How much the combined insurance will pay for is still an open question, and the family needs two cars...

(3) DUCKTALES #4 is indeed slated for release this week, according to ComicList. So is the delayed reprint of THE BARKS BEAR BOOK from IDW. Those of you who have the original paperback, however, would be well served to hang onto it. Apparently, this tome will not reprint the full contents of the original, no doubt for copyright-related reasons. Still, half a loaf, and all that...
