#100HappyDays — Day 28 — Fish 'n' Chimps — Comic #46 — Getting Ready to Come Out of the Closet
If you thought my humour was juvenile now, you should’ve seen me back in 2003!

It was my son’s 4-month “birthday” today, but I barely got to see him.

In a day preceded by three hours of sleep, fraught with everything from a site crash to slow progress with work things due to the March Break coworker exodus to the site files that refused to migrate, I came home to a kid ready to sleep from a day filled with visitors and stimuli.

My day wasn’t as exciting as his, though. It was all about:

  • Finding a hidden cache of old posts that were properly formatted, which could replace some old ones on my site that needed some touching up
  • Trying to delete the old posts, only to find that my site couldn’t handle all the load of deleting 100 posts at a time, crashing the site for a few minutes and making me finally decide to make the leap to a Virtual Private Server (VPS) to handle the stress I put on my site
  • Realizing that I’d tried all this before, and the ones that were there before were the result of the very same course of actions I was trying
  • Delete these “new magical files” I came across so I never make this stupid mistake again

But though I nearly obliterated all the stuff I’d worked so hard on (again…), I was happy that my plan to reintroduce Fish ‘n’ Chimps to the world was coming together.

So what if iI made them in an age where 1024 x 768 was the standard resolution, giving me comics that are way too small for the modern monitor?

So what if they show the humour of a Casey Palmer in his late teens and early twenties, utterly juvenile and devoid of a solid storyline?

So what if in 2003, I was acting like this:

It’s progress. I’ll take it.

#100HappyDays Day 28/100, parfait!
