    “GoComics Slower Than Molasses In Winter” @Dogsniff (and others)(Hint) Here’s a tip for GoComics subscribers (PROs). Once you have loaded your comic page and find a strip upon which you wish to comment (or read the comment of others) don’t click on the COMMENTS button. Instead do the following;

    Right click on the strip’s title and select Open in a new window from the menu.This will not speed up GoComics, however it may save you time as you’re not reloading your comic page. If the strip is slow in loading, you can go back to your comics or you have a comment in mind that just won’t hold still, you could switch to a word processor to compose it.

    Contributors to this hint are; SusanSunshine and x_Tech

    Looks like Calvin gets his news from the Hot Sheets.

    I didn’t think Calvin’s parents would go in for that tabloid trash.

    Is that a British paper or something? I was thinking National Enquirer.

    Thanks, @x_Tech. Can you tell us whether GoComics is making progress addressing the problem? Yesterday the site ran OK early morning and late evening, but during the day it was the slowest many of us have ever seen. In general, during the past 2 weeks, it has been a lot slower than previously. So something has changed very recently. Will GoComics be increasing server capacity?

    Calvin is all about family values—could have been “Space Alien Divorces Two-Headed Elvis Clone!”

    The Enquirer.. Yes as about as useful as fox news and as about as legitimate.

    Calvin the future agent for the Men in Black…. LMAO

    @ x_Tech, I think too many comic lovers are on at the same time, the servers can’t handle it. :-(

    Back in the ’80’s I heard it said that the National Enquirer will never let that facts stand in the way of telling a good story.

    @towerwarlock – why is there always one…

    This is about a comic strip – a really funny one – not modern US politics.

    Go comics was really bad yesterday (Sunday 27 Nov), but to day it is OK, it could also be because I’m looking at it late morning, not early AM when most people are on it.

    Most of the lies, propaganda, and WMD stories came from Saddam himself. Problem is, the powers that be believed him or couldn’t take a chance that he was lying. Come to find out, he was just all talk which is typical of petty insecure cowardly dictators.

    I remember in a Creative Writing workshop, we looked at the headlines in such periodicals. The teacher pointed out how well they served to tell a full story and draw the reader in for more details in just a few words.

    You are ignoring the inconvenient truth of the hypocrasy, corruption, distort the facts, and “screw the people” attitude of the for right. I voted for the party of Lincoln and TR but got the party of Hayes, Harding, and Hoover. For shame!

    That sounds a interesting story, Calvin.

    Elvis always was a handsome man.. I don’t listen to his music but my mam is obsessed with him. I only like the " Viva Las Vegas" song. Only one I’ve heard.

    LOL xxx

    What I do is go to “comics a to z” and search each comic individually—they come up right away.

    If tabloids are not ‘news’, why do they seem to get the scoop on so many celebrities? And the frequent lawsuits which they often win? Does no one remember the wisdom from Men in Black?? Oh, the travesty!

    You can tell a lot about a person by what they read first in the newspaper. Read the Comics first, you will live longer.

    One “paper” is reporting the lifestyle of Lindsey Lohan, while the other is reporting on Barny Frank. Which of these is reporting current event ? And more important, which “paper” is more honest about what they are reporting?

    If’s not just tabloid writers who take a course in creative writing. The shack next door to me was for sale a year ago, and the real estate listing made it sound like a palace! Realators have to be good at writing fiction.

    The kind of stuff printed in The New York Times could use some explaining as well. An explanation of how the alien met Elvis might take quite a while, I mean, what kind of lifestyle do you have to have to meet aliens?

    It would have been funny if he took an actual “current event” as this was from 1986… or if it was about a VCR or Beta-Max. ;-) LOL!
