The 'scripts' for the comics (the words and stuff) are actually a good deal harder to do than most people think. My basic litmus test is that it makes at least one other person laugh. Yes, I've got a few unlucky victims who act as a test-audience for all of my failed attempts at humour.
The problem is that a joke that works just in words doesn't always work when you lay it out on the page, so some perfectly funny gags just don't make it to the Web-site. Things that work in text just don't always work in comic form -- or at least, not without a whole lot more work.
Linden Lab, as you likely know by now, have dropped in excess of 30% of their staff, and apparently more to come. Predicting record revenues and record usage, the focus is on the consumer. The Lab, however, has laid off most of the staff who deal with (or have dealt with) end-users, and more have jumped ship recently.
So, this might seem like a bit of a harsh gag, but technically, the Lab's writing this one, not me.
