A couple of days ago I went to start up my computer in the morning and: nothing. I’ve had computer crashes before, so I tried all the tricks I know. Still nothing. Telephone tech support wasn’t helpful. My local computer repair service did their best, but it still didn’t help. I finally found a place to send my computer to for repair, but it’s going to take a couple of weeks.
Now, I have a travel laptop that I can use to do critical things and I have backups of essential things like financial documents, but all my fun stuff is on that computer, all my AFR images and the text of Father’s Shield. Until I get my main computer up and running again, I’m afraid AFR and Father’s Shield will have to go on hiatus.
I haven’t missed a comic since I started posting AFR weekly. I’m proud of that. You all keep coming back every week; the least I can do is have a new joke for you. But there’s nothing I can do now but wait, and it’s frustrating. I’m sorry. I feel bad about leaving you all in the lurch. I will get back on track as soon as I can.
Thanks for being patient. If all goes well, I should have the newest comic and chapter for you in a couple of weeks.
