It's getting silly now; before we know it, it'll be 2020, and that's a year that's unquestionably the future. The Machine Man comics that were backup strips in Transformers in 1985 were set in 2020, and in another couple of years they'll be historical documents set in the past.
Anyway, I really should make a resolution to post more regular blog updates. Quantity is, in every case, better than quality, so I'm going to make an effort to post something every night, until I next forget or simply can't be bothered. Look forward to it!
