Preparing for the Big Night

Comic for Feb­ru­ary 20, 2009: Prepar­ing for the Big Night

Milo is work­ing on a pro­to­type for the Sus­tained Tem­po­ral Fault Unit. Rather than zap­ping things through time, it lets you create a sus­tained portal between two points in space-​time. It is sub­stan­tially more con­ve­nient.

    Just read through the archives. Really well done, impres­sively weird story with art to match. Added you to my Piperka.net list.

    I can’t wait for the next comic. I want to see what makes them send back so many Stan­leys.

    I can’t promise that the mys­tery will be resolved in the very next comic, but we cer­tainly are get­ting close.

    Also, I hadn’t heard of Piperka before now, but I have to say that looks very handy. Not sure if it’ll replace my RSS feeds, but the book­mark­ing func­tion­al­ity is a def­i­nitely a nice fea­ture. Thanks for the link!

    I think it’s pretty obvi­ous that Roy will be send­ing all the Stan­leys back in time to get rid of them, thus cre­at­ing a Stan­ley time loop (and a fair amount of irony).
    Or maybe not…

    Really, I think for some­thing like this to work you’d have to first figure out if the space-​time con­tin­uum is mal­leable or not.

    “How are you going to figure that out? Poke it with a stick?”
