Today’s strip plays homage to another trope – “Forgot I could fly”. I call it Techo-Amnesia, from my days of nit-picking Star Trek episodes. (How often can the crew forget they have access to transporters? Answer: Very often.)
I was actually several episodes downstream scripting Scotch and Whiskey talking to the club owner when the owner asked “have you tried…you know…calling them?” Up until that moment it’d hadn’t occurred to me.
Luckily there was still time to adjust the earlier strips.
And speaking of Technical Issues – my host has been having Database problems lately. I’ve been assured they’re working on it. In the meantime, sorry if the site is sluggish (or even down for hours at a time.) I’ve installed a caching plugin that should help.
