    Heh, nice callback. I'll have to look to see if I can link the strip where Florence talks about ways to get around the programming locks, since one of them was 'stealing air'.

    I strongly recommend the use of this webpage when binge'ing freefall.

    Kinda wish it was available in more webcomics, but it's the only one I'm aware of.

    That is a very neat site. I shall have to avoid it lest I spend all my time binging freefall.

    ... and now Sam is attempting to start a war between the fundamental forces of nature. I don't foresee that ending well.

    Och, they'll just chase him around for a while and then break for ice cream. Like everyone else.

    Sam never faces real consequences for the stuff he pulls.

    Is it wrong of me to hear Ship's voice as the PA system from M*A*S*H?

    I've somehow had the impression the ship's voice is female.

    Probably because most starship voices are done by actresses. Aside from HAL and Aliens Resurrection, can you think of a ship with a male voice?

    Also the (non-absolute, with abounding exceptions) tendency of declaring ships to be 'she's.'

    As the Scottish Maritime Museum is learning right now, attempting to change that tradition is more trouble than it's worth.
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    New Freefall, in which Sam learns a lesson about gravity and shows some grasp of practicality.

    Your link is dead. The comic is still there, somehow the link doesn't reach it.

    The link is correct, it's just that some browsers won't use the strip number when the strip is also under the 'default' page url.

    That's a very interesting definition of "correct".

    Not my fault some coders ignore two of three valid urls for the same page. Heck, I can't even remember the third, since it takes up to a month to work on a Microsoft or Google browser.

    Since the URL will work properly in all browsers once a new strip shows up, it is indeed correct - it is just some browsers that have a problem. On the other hand using the "default" URL will make the link incorrect the moment a new strip shows up.

    In what browser does it work before that? Because that is a weird bug to be browser specific and I am curious about it.

    Edit: Interesting in http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff3300/ no fc03273.htm is listed though the gif is. If that actually exist and is accessible for some browser something is screwy with access limitations. Going by last modified dates the htm pages are always either created or modified days after the gif.

    I'm pretty sure this is an issue on the server, not in any browser. It is the server's responsibility to recognize that X url means Y page, and that's the issue here.
