    And 20 years later, Tory Belleci did something similar with a bicycle and a little red wagon….

    How many of us thought a situation would knock us on our butt only to surprisingly land on our feet ?

    Nice Calvin. No one can trip over a crack in the sidewalk more gracefully.

    Slow Page Loading on GoComics (Update #247)

    Here is a message that I received from GoComics yesterday:

    Hello,

    We apologize for the intermittent downtime and/or slowness on www.gocomics.com.

    If you’re still having the problem, can you please try holding down the shift key on your keyboard while clicking the refresh button in your internet browser?

    Sincerely,

    GoComics Support



    Note: The above message is for Mozilla Firefox users. GoComics is talking about reloading the page while bypassing the cache.

    If you are using Internet Explorer, hold down the Control key and then click the Refresh button.

    If you are using Google Chrome, hold down the Control key and then click the Reload button.



    I’ve been wanting to test this out, but every time I open GoComics to try to test it, the site is running super fast. When I want the site to run slow, it simply won’t cooperate. How frustrating.

    If you are experiencing very slow page-loading and you find that these instructions help to improve loading time, if you find that they have no effect, or if you find that they cause your computer to spontaneously combust, please post your findings, and I’ll feed back a summary of the results to GoComics.

    Technically, Calvin didn’t have enough forward momentum in panel 1 to be able to flip completely over. He needed to be running, in order to have sufficient kinetic energy that could be translated into potential energy in the form of height when he tripped, not to mention also translating forward momentum into rotational momentum. But, we’ll let that pass….

    Let’s have a sitting round of applause for Hobbes (TPPC) for going to bat for us (finally).
