A last minute change of plan (or rather, change of comic) this week – which doesn’t bode well considering this is only the second comic we’ve posted.

We had a different comic lined up for this week: one with an Easter Egg in the form of some animation. That comic was created a few weeks ago, and the animation was tested in the version of Opera that was on my machine at the time. Since then, however, I’ve upgraded my operating system (to Ubuntu 9.04) and installed a newer version of Opera… and now the animation won’t run 🙁

The intended comic will appear some time, I’m sure – I just have to work out whether it’s an Opera problem, an SVG problem, or some other problem… or just give up and post it without an Easter Egg.

In the meantime, have this offering instead. We dedicate this comic to anyone who is currently learning to drive. Luckily for us, we passed our tests before the introduction of parallel parking on the syllabus, so we never had to go through the grief encountered by the antagonist in this strip.
