#167 – Vacation

If you see some strange stuff happening in the next 24 hours it’s because I’m moving Biff to a new server. The first 10 days of this month have maxed out the bandwidth of the old server. So during the next day some of the comments may end up on the old server and seem to disappear when you start connecting to the new one. After I shut down the old account I’ll move over any stragglers so that everything is here with the new stuff.

    A wonderful way to travel, provided you’ve got air. I’m sure not many will mind being on a new server.

    now that’s odd. only 2 days ago i had a conversation with a friend about whether her boyfriend was getting delivered by UPS and them loosing his luggage and delivering the box upside down and slightly battered despite “this way up” and “fragile” stickers. the only serious problem with this form of travel is if there is no one home at the address you post yourself to then you get taken back to the depot and can’t get picked up until the weekend because they are open at ridiculous times.

    The new location seems to transfer noticably more slowly, but whatev. Probably just the move. I doubt anyone will really care (your comic is definitely worth waiting for, imho).
    Haha, great concept. I love his expressions… I think I may have said that already. πŸ˜›

  4. Chris says:

    That’s interesting, for me the site now loads a lot faster. Perhaps it depends where on the interweb you are connecting compared to where the new server is. I guess the new one is closer to me and farther from you. :p

  5. Chris says:

    Yeah I’ll be doing some contests eventually. There are some other projects for Biff I have to finish first. πŸ™‚

  6. I am Satan, I am Jesus Christ says:

    Ive always wanted to try that.
    Site seems to be going faster for me though. Its great, i can get my fix of Biff a lot faster when i need it.

  7. Chris says:

    Good, we have 1 vote slower and 2 votes faster. πŸ™‚

  8. I am Satan, I am Jesus Christ says:

    Woo majority vote wins. So we all agree it goes faster. But…this isnt a democracy. Chris is the Dictator. LONG LIVE CHRIS. LONG LIVE THE BIFFiet UNION.

  9. J says:

    hehehe, i suck at drawing with a mouse.


    also, dont ask me where his pelvis went, because i distinctly remember drawing it in.

  10. In regards ta the “Server Move” message:
    That’s what ya get fer advertisin’ with Bob & George! πŸ˜€

  11. Knownimus says:

    I used to try to do that when I was little. Nobody put me by the mailbox though…and I still want to do it.

  12. DeiMiles says:

    Yeah, sorry, it loads much faster now. It was loading slowly for a while, and it would randomly stick an IP address into the URL bar, and when I tried to navigate anywhere else it would yell at me. *shrugs* It works now, that’s all I know.

  13. some kid says:

    i finaly finished reading and it took me foreverandaday
    my brother knocked me out once and tryed to mail me to canada but he forgot the stamps and i woke up

  14. Chri says:

    the new first class…..

  15. Gordy says:

    He would probably pack some pudding with him. Some candy, and maybe a book. Oh, and an air hole maker.

  16. CJ says:

    Wow. I have to say, nice comic as a whole. I only wanted to read a bit, but ended up reading from the start to this one in one sitting.

    Reading this comic makes you feel smarter in some ways… and a bit awkward if anything in it has happened to you.

    Anyways, keep up the good work. I will defiantly keep reading as you update.

  17. Chris says:

    Thanks CJ, I hope you didn’t share too many experiences with Biff. I guess you wouldn’t be here to type this if you did.

  18. Neyro says:

    I wonder what Class that is, as In first class or whatever… Probably Biff Class… πŸ˜›

  19. Greywolf says:

    “Hi, I’d like a round trip ticket to Sydney, Australia and I’d like you to send my luggage to Bombay.”

    “Sir, we can’t do that.”

    “Sure you can — you did it last time!”

  20. Wayne says:

    No matter how you travel, they’ll find a way to lose your luggage…

  21. zantarath says:

    Biff probably was well supplied with toast for the snail mail trip.

  22. Avarie says:

    Wasn’t there a guy who actually did this?

  23. Mint Sharpie says:

    Ad in a French (?) airport: “We take your bags and send them in all directions.”

  24. Radical Edward says:

    This reminds me of a man in Eastern Europe who mailed himself to his mother.
    She was very sick and he didn’t have money for the train. He brought some water and sandwiches for his trip in the box and arrived safely the next day.

    Funny how life and art imitate each other…

  25. Darkpheonix XIII says:

    To have real fun with airline people, bring two bags, buy a ticket for, let’s say Honolulu. Then, tell them to send one bag to tokyo and the other to paris. If they refuse, tell them they did it before without being asked.

  26. DemonRex says:

    Imagine how bad it will be if we develop interstellar travel. “I’m sorry, sir, but it appears that we send your luggage to Alpha Centauri. Enjoy your stay on Mars.” You’d be seperated by thousands of light years…

  27. Hoboapple says:

    Pshhhhhh… just goes to show you that you can never trust the shipping company!

  28. Rachel says:

    cant he just take an airplane?

  29. Korota says:

    I’m surprised he was able to get on a plane at all carrying a boxcutter! =P

  30. Torg says:

    Actually, DemonRex, Alpha Centauri is “only” four light-years away. That still translates to around 30 trillion miles, though.

  31. Torg says:

    And Korota, maybe that’s why he had to be mailed instead of using a proper plane.

  32. Hornswaggler says:

    Wow…this is brilliant. XDD His face is priceless.
