So, after new year's eve I was somewhat tired - ok, it is more correct to say I was very stressed. It took me a while to slowly go back to work at sustainable rates and I accumulated, as always, a ton of things to do.

Today, I figured out it was a while I didn't check SHD-WK and I found out there are 5 new strips. Wow, that's mildly scary.

By the way, I truly didn't notice up to now ak-ryuu uploaded a comic on Jan 1st. I suppose there must be some sort of automatic magic at work here because this would have taken incredible amounts of willpower to me! It's indeed somewhat impressive.

As a side note, one of the comics I used to buy seems to have reach its natural conclusion (at least for now). I think I should seriously start thinking about reading more books (or "reading books" and nothing else :) )

That's surprising? My planned and already announced 3-month hiatus isn't until much later this year, so why wouldn't there be new comics now? Two updates per week! :)

I'm drawing and uploading comics in advance, and they're indeed automatically posted on midnight my time Tuesdays and Fridays. (You can always check how far ahead I am on the buffer status page, currently linked from the front page I think.) But the accompanying forum posts, I do by hand! Even on New Year, a few minutes after midnight :)

And I haven't missed or been late for a single update since it all started in 2003. No filler strips either! If nothing else is, I'm sure this is a pretty good accomplishment for a webcomic :)

This is not so surprising in itself, as you say, it's just a scheduled release. I didn't realize my break has been so long. Checking a webcomic is just a matter of seconds and reading it takes a minute, it looks like I was really tired.

Maybe I should get regular, easier goals as well. Most of my tasks are long-term and sometimes difficult to monitor for progress.
You're right in being proud of your perseverance. You rock!
