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.

Socrates: But we can't link! I'm "tainted!" I--
[[Fred interrupts by merging a pseudopod with one of Socrates.]]

Socrates: I... I'm... fixed. I can... feel it...
Fred: [crossing his "arms" smugly] I don't normally make house calls, but I'll send you my bill.
