Erase & Rewind.

So! It's been a while. I think the last time I attempted this, I produced 7 comics (Technically, 6, as I never posted number 6) over the course of six months or so. It's a weird feeling to have someone--with genuine amusement--quote something to you that you wrote. I liked it. Still, there was room for improvement, so here goes attempt number 2.

Layout stuff. I decided to experiment with some alt text, which isn't really alt text at all, as it's under the title attribute, but let me know what you think. You may also find that there are no tables on this page, and I'm going to try to keep it that way, even if this is a far cry from validatable code.

The Useless Words thing is true. You can read about it at CNN , though in my brief digging I haven't turned up the original material--perhaps it's one of those unfortunate nuggets of information that isn't actually posted in full on the Intertron. Having struggled for years with our natural inclination to judge language and attempt to divert its direction with Style Manuals and Dictionaries and other things written by Old Dead White Guys (or ODWG), I've gotten a lot of entertainment out of people's rants. It may be noted here that my personal pet peeve is the term "pet peeve." So, a couple of notes on the "Useless Words" list:



Anyway, thanks for sitting through that, rant-like though it may have been.
