In a fair world, I would not have to write this post. In a fair world, I would finally be preparing the long-awaited “Welcome to the NEW Hunter Black” blog post. In a fair world…well.

This isn’t a fair world.

The site redesign is all but ready. There’s one thing that needs to be taken off and that’s it, we’re done. Taking things off is usually pretty easy, too. Of course, THAT is not the source of the delay.

I’m sure that many of you have been dealing with some version of the nationwide heat wave in recent weeks.The last few days, it has taken up residence in Los Angeles, and MAN, has it been hot. #Squirrel and I went to see Ant-Man and the Wasp on Friday night, and when we were driving home at 10:30pm, it was still over 100 degrees out. We actually had a power outage earlier that day, and I sat and waited as our apartment got slowly hotter. But we’ve been keeping the blinds closed, so we had a reserve of cold and dark to fall back on…and luckily, the power was back on within a few hours.

Our new web designer hasn’t been so lucky. Her AC unit crapped the bed, and she hasn’t been able to get anyone out to repair it, mostly because it’s the weekend, and probably because HVAC technicians are working overtime right now. Her place is well over 90 degrees INSIDE. Needless to say, she’s not staying at home, so she can’t put the finishing touches on the site, let alone transfer the new framework onto the old URL.

Will and Jacob and I are all trying very hard to be patient, and thankfully, we’ve been able to keep putting out the comic. But man, it’ll be nice to stop working getting to the next thing, and start actually working WITHIN the next thing.

    Good luck. When I was a kid in Los Angeles, the city still over-built infrastructure (and made the plan too spread out and car based, though at the time that made housing quite affordable even for the poor) and despite the horrific weather, THAT at least didn’t happen. Smog’s better these days, but a single nuke plant could make that even better and take care of most of the water issues even while making brown-outs and black outs a thing of distant memory.
    I’d never have thought back in the 1970s that California would go anti-nuclear, f only because it causes so much less cancer and/or rare animal slaughter than almost every other source of power (the fish in the intakes issue is solveable).

      Isn’t it vehicle pollution that makes the most part?
      Also, i agree with you about the benefits of nuclear power, and also that most of the small issues can easily be solved. But there is still nuclear waste that can not be refined, but only transported and buried somewhere very far from living zones, and that’s a main thing. Nuclear plant itself isn’t a clean thing either, even a modern one, and it will always remain a possible nuclear threat to the area (if you know about Chernobyl incident).
      There are quite a few unobvious details that make me think anti-nuclear solutions have weighted reasons.
      Yet though, it’s a strategic thing, and ecology doesn’t get any place at this level. After all, the whole world should’ve already been bathing in the pristine energy of hydrogen splintering, which was developed like half century ago and already declared technically possible.
      Unfortunately, there is still oil economy, it doesn’t want to go and it never will unless SOMETHING.
