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.

[[Otto is commenting on one of the plans in the tech manual his father is showing him.]]
Otto: Dad~!! I think the vertical flux capacitor needs to be placed FORWARD a bit more!!
William: Forward?! Yes~!! I'll suggest that, son!!

[[Greta pulls William a little ways away from Otto.]]
Greta: I know the boy's a GENIUS, Will ~ and if not for him FINE-TUNING the designs behind the scenes ~ we wouldn't have developed much of the technology we have in the last THREE YEARS~

[[The scene widens, and we see Greta gesturing toward Flavoura and her huge "tracts of land."]]
Greta: ~But, don't you wish that ~ just for once, the boy'd take an interest in the things OTHER boys his age are interested in?!!
