20100121 (16) – Removed Salon Nu Vo logo from panels 9 and 12.
20100130 (8) – A couple of minutes into the 31rst, actually – but almost all of the work was done on the 30th, so. Rewrite-wise… wordier. So. Much. Wordier. Not as wordy as the next page, but man – look at those GIANT PILES OF WORDS. At least, unlike -13-, it all fits.
20101225 – Original page metadata:
In 1997, only the rich suit types had cel phones. Everyone else was still using pagers.
2008.04.19 – All glory to the minor glasses cleanup.

Strip 070, 20060709 –
“Break” is something of a misnomer, in that this section of the story only deals with part of the gap between Spring and Summer quarters… but it’s about as accurate as it gets, really.
Strip 071, 20060710 –
Don’t you just hate waking up in the mens room? I know I do.
Sign of the times: in 1997, everybody had pagers. Specifically, the big-pants and stupid visor ravers, the ghettobeasts and the homies. Cell phones hadn’t reached prole pricing yet.
And the date is accurate – June 11th was a Wednesday. iCal++.
Strip 072, 20060711 –
Well, it ain’t fuckin’ Shakespeare, that’s fer shure. It is a transitional strip done at 4 in the morning, though – and I can’t think of a better time to do the unfun-but-necessary bits.
Panels 2-4 were part of the DCR Background Shoot I did on 20060707 – downtown, during rush hour, during the weekend of the allstar game*. That I managed to get reasonably empty shots in the location in question – close to ground zero – is something of a fluke.
* If memory serves, that game gets played the day this strip is supposed to go live (the 11th).
Strip 073, 20060712 –
On a four-per-page count, dropping all static and squelch after the first two strips, this is the end of page fifteen. Woot!
Mastering notes, 2016.12.07 – Name change. Whitehouse’s VP instructor is now MacMillan, and is not abbreviated.
