There's no column tonight. The reason there is no column tonight
is that literally every single letter I got tonight just answers that SotN question. Those boots
increase your height by like 2 or 3 pixels. It says this if you read the item description in
fact. Measure it if you want. 8) Anyway though, I know that someone is going to send me a nasty
e-mail when they read this, yelling at me for "giving more stupid excuses instead of doing a column".
I will gladly forward the entire contents of my mailbox to this person if they need the reality
check. I care VERY MUCH about having a column for you people every day. I feel completely awful
when I can't give you one, despite the fact that it's never my fault. Heck, that's why I put up
these little appologies. That way you at least aren't kept in suspense. I don't get anything in
return for doing these columns remember. It's all for your benefit. Anyway, the reason there
is no column today, and far too many days in the past, is that Brad printed a question without
answering it. Many many of you sent in the answer instead of asking questions. I'm not blaming
anyone, just stating a fact. Now then, I've explained all this to Brad (more than once I believe)
but it will probably happen again. So, here is what I ask of you. If Brad prints a letter with
no answer, or the wrong answer, give me a day to answer it myself before you say anything. If
you DO have an overwhelming urge to send the answer in, please include an unrelated question
too. Like, say, "How does the magic system in Final Fantasy 27 work exactly? P.S. Those boots
from yesterday's column increase your height by 2 or 3 pixels." That would be great. Now then,
I'm going to be going, hopefully I'll have a nice plump mailbox of unique questions tomorrow night.
Oh yeah, don't send me anything about Brad's columns this weekend. Some rather nasty stuff is
in there, but I personally don't want to deal with any of it.
