Please see the attached file for details

Listen to me very carefuly. There is a virus floating around called SOBIG.F. It arrives as a file attachment to an email with the message "See the attached file for details." When the virus infects your computer, it searches all your files for email addresses, including any archived websites in your temporary internet files folder. It then spams those email addresses with copies of itself non-stop. I have recieved over 500 copies of this virus today. I recieved 11 copies just in the time it took me to write this update. My anti-virus software protects me from the infection, but not from the annoyance of 500 freaking spam messages.

Understand that if you are infected with this virus and you read Sam and Fuzzy, you are spamming me with it right now. Please download the patch that finds and removes the virus. I don't want to wake up to another 500 stupid emails. And for the love of pete, get some anti-virus software if you don't already have some! Yeesh!

On a much happier note, I have two extremely rad pieces of fanart in the gallery. The first is a neat one that comes from Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content. I probably find the notion of Sam and Fuzzy discussing copyright rules funnier than I should. The second drawing is an insane rendition of Sam and Fuzzy anime characters, complete with a giant taxi-mech, and was made by my own sweetie Alteka. I wish I had a taxi-mech.

But all I have is SPAM SPAM SPAM!

Rinse, lather, repeat

There's another nifty piece of fanart in the gallery -- this one comes from Glee Studios' Alex C.
I know that most other webcartoonists don't individually announce every single piece of new fanart, but I can't help it. Maybe it's just because the novelty of it all hasn't worn off yet, but I still get pretty excited when I see someone else's interpretation of my characters.

I've seen the lights go out on broadway

(Expect to hear that Billy Joel song a lot in the next little while)

Why, are you asking, was the Sam and Fuzzy website down all day? Well, although I live in Victoria, BC, Canada, Sam and Fuzzy live on a server in sunny New York, New York, and as you may have heard, a massive power outage hit a huge chunk of central Canada and the eastern USA today.

Since the site is back up now, I guess power must be restored in parts of New York, at least. I never like it when my website is down, but it's difficult to feel hard-done-by when other people are stuck in subways and elevators. I guess all we can hope for is that everyone makes it home OK.

Without question, our current power grid systems are simply too prehistoric to meet our needs. But still, there wouldn't be such a strain on the grids if it wasn't so abnormaly hot this year. Personally, I'd be worried about the record high temperatures if it wasn't for the fact that there is no such thing as global warming. I feel safer already.
