´Fraid so. Don't say you weren't warned. I had a lot of er, "material" left over for future episodes, so we'll see how it goes. But hardly the same volumes and regularity - drove me nuts in the end, plus it was getting seriously in the way of earning a crust.

Last LT was on 4 March 2009. Doesn't time fly? And we're no closer to collaring the Asmatutakoizena Killer:

And if you're relatively new and are wondering what the wavies are:

Wow! Aug 9, 2017

I remember I downloaded the whole saga and waited with bated breath for new episodes...
If I can't find it in the archives, it would warrant reviving my old XP computer, where it will turn up.
I knew there was a good reason for not scrapping it!

Have a good summer yourself!

TOPIC STARTER
Should be out ... Sep 4, 2017

... some time tomorrow or the next day. Worra slog. A bit longer than I'm used to, and maybe a teensy bit darker than I'm used to as well. Thought about putting it out in two parts, but just couldn't figure out how. The lighter bits will be in the middle, though. Prepare yourselves for some dreadfully bad plays on words.

Gotta get back to 9K for Friday. Worra slog again.
