Doc Rat: Heal Thyself

In a previous post, I described Doc Rat's unintentional posting of a week's worth of strips.

I notified Dr. J by email, and he wrote back that he had had an unfortunate date glitch while uploading, coupled with a rare absence of his webmaster to fix the problem. He indicated, however, that he thinks he has fixed the issue by himself, and from what I can see, it's back to normal. I was reminded of this passage from The Thirteen Clocks by James Thurber: "Tinkers and tinkerers and a few wizards who happened by tried to start the clocks with tools or magic words, or by shaking them and cursing, but nothing whirred or ticked." I had this great vision of Jenner mumbling incantations over his server, or perhaps listening to it with a stethoscope. I wish I could draw what I see... Shaking things and cursing - that's my preferred repair style.

Jenner closed with, "Some people have had a sneak peek of the coming week's story. Ah, well, call it a teaser. Just when the story's about to get really exciting!"

I love the one-off jokes, but I really love the arcs, and Jenner is a great storyteller.
