Thieves Jargon 198

First off, huge thanks to --Ed. Dan Scannell, who undertook the site redesign project. We've been talking about this since before he came on board, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Paramount for me was changing the font from that tiny Arial to something bigger and easier to read. Everything else was more or less his idea. I like the new organization of the authors and artists and links. The horizontal layout is a nice touch. We'll see if we get any traction on the ads. Like the new color scheme. Something for Dan to be proud of accomplishing.

But everybody knows that looks aren't everything, so I'm happy to know there's some substance underneath that pretty head of hair as well. Personal favorites from issue 198 include Renaldo's All-Night Shave, Having a Heart Attack, and Brown I. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time in a long time that we've had an issue made up entirely of first-timers.

And dig that innocently innapropriate cover art. Promise mommy you won't sit on Uncle BJ's lap.

Issue 200 is coming soon. Any special plans?
