The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

[Comic for Thursday, February 2, 2006]


[[Nick is in a forest, sitting against a tree.]]
Nick, thinking: Deducing my true location would certainly be easier if I had the MUTEX's remote, but it's missing... Along with my watch and PDA. My "host" must want to keep me unplugged.

[[Nick frowns and puts his hand to his chin, concentrating.]]
Nick, thinking: And she chose a low-tech fantasy setting to minimize my chances of hacking the VR. Clever. So I have to play her game for now. At least now I'm actively playing and not just being played.

Nick, thinking: I can't let her know that I know. If she knows that I know, she might change tactics. But how do I know she doesn't know that I know? I know she knows that I know I'm "in" the MUTEX, but does she know that I know she knows that I know?

[[Nick puts his hand to his forehead. His face looks partly tired, partly sad.]]
Nick, thinking: Oh _NO_... Now I'm doing bad comedy routines by myself in my head. Maybe I am getting a bit too exhausted...
