episode 15 strip

That promise about doing better with ELER? Yeah, well. Doesn’t all this stuff just bore you to tears? Go do some coding or something.

I’m on holiday next week so you’ll probably miss another strip, but you should be used to that by now.

Hey, also, feel free to join #newworldodour on Quakenet and say hi.

UPDATE: No new ELER this week, I’m on holiday. This message is brought to you from an Internet cafe in Moscow. I can’t speak Russian but I’m having a go.
