The spambot won't tell us how it (I don't know its gender) found out about Terror Island. That is sad.

Really? Looks to me like it was a very simple four-step process, in which each step involved that website it links to.

Hey there,

I got linked from the forum for the webcomic XKCD.
I think it linked me to comic 125, but I am not entirely sure.

Anyway, it was a great experience reading through it, although it did end kind of abruptly.
The ending was all worth it though, and in retrospect I am glad that I read it.

I am really looking forward to your next project,

Christopher.

For the record, I will admit I was pretty impressed with how the ending seemed abrupt, but really did manage to tie together all the loose ends--at least, those that I can think of.

One of our motivations regarding the way we did the ending was some commentary on a Newsradio DVD. They didn't know when they were working on the last season that it was going to be the last one, so it didn't get the sort of ending it might otherwise have had. One of the writers mentioned that he has a recurring dream where they know the last episode is coming up, and he's struggling to write out a script that will give a satisfying ending for all of the characters.

That's why before the very last strip, we did about two weeks of more or less one-offs tying up various character and plot arcs. We still didn't manage to work all of them in (I would really have liked to have another Bartleby appearance, but I didn't want that enough to pad things out fifty more strips), but I think the main highlights all got covered.

You should do a prequel strip 0 with Bartleby in it.

I think Lewis's position is that in the TIverse, time itself was created at strip number 1, so talking about a hypothetical strip #0 is as meaningless as asking what the universe was like a second before the Big Bang. I may be misremembering his position, though.

I request more Bartleby in any form, whether it be in TI or Request Comics or a cameo in some other comic.

Also, it turns out that the Vancouver BC mission is fairly lax on its internet policy, so I will probably be able to check Request Comics every week on Monday. (But thanks for the offer, William!)

Great to see you on here!

I've entered your request for more Bartleby into my official request database. (Actually a text file and not a database.)

I found out about Terror Island from my brother, Chenjesu. It may quite possibly be the greatest web comic out there.

On a side note, I completely disagree that Pluto should not be a planet, and not just because it is a planet in Star Control 2 (though that is a convincing enough reason on its own). My argument is thus: Space has already become boring enough, what with NASA completely failing to send people to Mars, or terraforming the moon, or discovering intelligent life, etc. etc. Now if we remove a planet from our solar system, the layperson now knows even less about space, feels like NASA is doing a terrible job, and spends his extra dollar on a twinkie instead of donating it to scientific research.

Continuing the previous hypothetical (http://factitiouslj.livejournal.com/11937.html) where an alien visitor discovers our planet, I think they would be much more disappointed that our space program had flopped because we were all nitpicky over whether our arbitrary definitions of planets were out of wack than if we had crazy definitions of planets and the firepower to back up our definitions.

That's why we have gallons and not liters. :idea:

More importantly, what little I have seen of your forum is awesome. May I continue to be stunned.

Man, MC Fantastic, you're an awesome poster!

Actually I think you're the only poster in a long time. This place is as dead as nails.

Are nails dead? Does that not imply that they were once alive? Are you sure you have asserted yourself correctly?

Watch out for what exactly? I'm neither dead yet, nor in fact actually a spider.
