So here’s something odd that happened today. Someone sent me an email addressed to Nick. Not the Nick in the story, but some Nick who has the same last name I do and appears to go to college somewhere in California.
I have no idea what’s up with that.
To me, it seems obvious that this is a web serial and not a personal blog. I can’t imagine that anyone who read very far could confuse this for reality–especially not someone with a doctorate.
The email appears to be a note from one of his profs.

It’s late, but it’s here. It’s also a bit longer than normal.

This one’s not even arguably on Thursday. As I write this, it is Friday, but you know what? I’m cheating. I’ve just edited the timestamp to have this post show it was posted on Thursday anyway.
One more thing I should mention. I’m shocked that I’ve managed to get eight updates into this story without anybody getting punched. In a story about superheroes there’s got to be something wrong when that happens. Thus you’ll be happy to know that someone finally does get punched in this installment.

On the bright side, I did get to finish it off this morning. That’s a good point about snow days…

This post is late for a variety of reasons ranging from a nasty cold that kept me home from work to personal responsibilities that needed attention…
On the bright side, it’s up.

Lightning Strikes Twice: Part 3? There’s a title for you. At this point it should be Lightning Strikes Thrice…
Anyway, the funny part about having a Tuesday/Thursday update schedule is that you have many more days to write the Tuesday update than the Thursday update. To my relief, this update came pretty easily.

So yeah, first day for a twice weekly update and it’s later than I intended. That bodes well. Mind you it was mostly finished Sunday. I just didn’t have time to upload it.
Incidentally, here’s something for my near term “to do” list–arrange things so that the next and/or previous post is listed at the top or bottom of the page. Unlike some people writing, I’m a web developer (programmer/sysadmin) and therefore have no excuse.
