Fulfilling a Promise to Myself
Update 4/22/11 – Following a bit of serendipity, I have received permission from the author, Meghan O’hara, to continue to house her work. Thanks, Meghan!
A while back, I managed to download the excellent webcomic Hammer of Grammar to my hard drive, just before the website went dark. For months I kept it on my rotation hoping it would revive itself.
It never did.
I promised myself that I would make those comics available somehow, but before I could, I felt the need to try to get permission to do so. Two years ago, in 2009, I found a lead and made inquiries, but never got a reply. Gweryc, the blogger in question, has not posted in over a year and a half. The last surfacing of Auden was over 3 and a half years ago. I don’t think we’re going to hear from them. I hope they’re well and happy together.
That leaves me with my unfulfilled promise. I have now delivered on it; up there in the menu you will now find a page that contains the entirety of Hammer of Grammar except for #1 – that one disappeared from the main site in 2007.
A couple of things:
I don’t have permission to do this.The page is a labor of love, and is borne of desire to share the wry wit of this most excellent series, however short it was.
- I could be contacted and issued a takedown notice by the creator. I will comply if that occurs. I have no desire to go against the creator’s wishes.
- I am considering additional rescue projects. I’m looking at you, Scout Report. How long has it been? ((And, incidentally, if anyone has contact info regarding Scout Report, please pass it along.))
That’s it. Take fifteen minutes of your life and enjoy yourself.
