Well, it’s that time of the year again. First I want to apologise for the sparsity of comics these past few weeks. I have actually been ill for a while (I still am as I write this), and lately with more than one disease.
As I’m heading to London for the holidays, I want to thank you all for another great year and wish you a lovely, blessed Christmas. I look forward to drawing in the New Year!
PS. Do you remember the burglary back in October? Apparently the police in nearby Geneva have arrested two men for a series of break-ins and property damages, and apparently they’ve charged them with the burglary in our house as well. I mention this because a LOT of you were concerned at the time, and I kinda left you with the impression that the police weren’t doing anything.
Scientists at EPFL provide the first ever experimental evidence that a magnetic field can be generated by a temperature gradient. Why is that important? Because it might change the way we do electronics. And can also give a purpose to all those overheating laptops.

Burglary update: They’re not catching anyone. I’ve made my peace with my stolen laptop. I’m now shopping for a new one. It’s OK. Don’t have to eat food every day.
Many thanks for the moral support, everyone! Your comments here and on Facebook/Twitter prove that the Internet can be used for good. You guys rock.
I promise to get back to drawing ASAP.
