Update: The Saga of The Cursed Episode!

OK, who hexed this episode? :)

Was set to program the weekend away, so, of course, all of my notes vanished into the ether. All of them. The numbers I need to code all of the animation? Eaten by some strange note-eating monster in my house. !@#$^%(*&^%$#@ I spent the 90+ degree weekend scouring the house, to no avail.

So, I just recreated the notes. Will work on coding over the next few days. Will get this episode done if it kills me.

Hi there.

No, it's not finished yet. I'm sorry.

This episode has been rather challenging. I had LASIK surgery in January with mixed results, limiting my ability to stare at a computer screen for the required time. A cast member had a death in the family. Seasonal depression was extended by several weeks because I live in the Grey Hell of Upstate NY. I'm learning a new tool that, in theory, will make editing easier but there's a steep learning curve and I'm slow. I'm about halfway through the worst of the programming right now, after which there will be a week of editing. I'm hoping to get the programming done in the next couple days, but expect it to be closer to another week as I've hit a really thorny snag and have to decide how to work around it.

On the plus side, I've managed to sketch out the remainder of the first story arc, and will be able to write scripts and record audio much faster. So, hopefully, this will be back on a more frequent schedule very soon.
