A riveting story

Those of you who ever had to rivet something on an airplane can probably relate to this strip. I can’t say I have had the pleasure, but Mike, who had the idea for this strip, tells me that it can get quite noisy when you have to hold the rivet die (is that the correct name?) from the inside of a tail boom. But then, many things in aviation are noisy. One of the most ear piercing noises I have heard in this regard was an Alouette 3 helicopter landing about 50 feet away from where I was. Goodness gracious, great balls of fire, was the sound of that turbine sound annoying. But I was told that most older turbine engines make a similar noise. It sure is a great thing that airliners have become so much less noisy over the years!

New Website!

I did it!! Yay!! I pulled the trigger, took the leap and after years of procrastination, finally revamped our website!

While on the front end it probably just looked antiquated, the back end of the site was an outdated and botched mess. Those behind-the-scenes changes should make the website faster and more reliable.

The biggest change you should be able to notice is that the comics are now bigger and the website is responsive, so it should scale down nicely on mobile devices.

I haven’t gotten every detail right yet. The main function (the comics) should work okay, but the whole thing is still a work in progress.

A few functions that we had on our old site will no longer be available, or maybe restored at a later point. E.g. our email feed had a reach in the single digits. The „link list“ was something straight out of the 90s and the advertisements were just a distraction with no significant revenue. Another prime objective was to de-clutter the site, so don’t expect as many buttons and gimmicks as on the older version.

I hope you enjoy the new look! Please be kind and overlook some of the glitches! I appreciate bug reports though!
