It was!

The lack of printers made it a million times easier than last year.

Which is not supported!

And not an acceptable exemption!

You should be wearing your big black hat.

THen you could say, "I'm a BLACK HAT HACKA!"

However, props on wearing shorts to this event. Very west coast of you.

My Kingfox Conundrum

If there was one person I thought I could count on it was Russell. Though we may have totally different lives and few chances to cross paths, our experiences together made it clear that this kind of friendship would not have to be questioned. It would just always be.

Or at least, I thought so.

See, back in senior year we did a TV special called Janet Wong Night. We also did a second hidden camera tape called simply 'Riddler Raw.'

Although not a part of the production itself, Russell enjoyed the tapes so much he asked me to borrow them, oh, some 2 -3 years ago, with the arrangement he could get them burned onto DVD.

Numerous times over the next few years I would ask Russell about the tapes. There was always some excuse or another reason why they haven't been burned, or why one of them was at work while he was in Hoboken, or whatever. I let it go, always trusting Russ to come through in the end.

Fast Forward again to right now. I have my own tools and have seriously begun work on the burning process. Now I really need those tapes.

In the last month I have attempted to contact Russell numerous times through these methods:

* Multiple voice mails at work, home, and cell.

* Posting this panel:

* Multiple instant messages. He ignores me or immediately switches to Away.
At one point I told him that at this point I didn't know if he seriously had beef
with me about something I didn't know, or if the tapes were lost or destroyed and
he didn't want to tell me, or if he was cutting out me out entirely. I told him
at this point I would just like some kind of response.

* I even resorted to asking his roommate and his girlfriend to help me.

* Now, Russell always said the best way to contact him was via e-mail. So here's
the e-mail, my last ditch effort:

I think the only medium I've haven't tried to contact you is via e-mail. I am, after numerous voice mails, IM requests, and a funny panel, still requesting 'Janet Wong Night' and 'Riddler Raw.' It has now been years since you've had them. The original agreement was for you to burn them onto DVD and make copies for us. For whatever reason, that did not happen. I have requested the tapes back numerous times on many occassions. I have always been polite in my requests. Now that I am in a position to burn them onto DVD, I am asking again that you mail them to me. You have consistenly ignored me. I still do not know the reason. If the tapes are lost or destroyed, I would like to know. If they are not, why won't you reply to me and/or throw them in the mail? Please consider that not only are they my property, they are very important to me for personal reasons you obviously understand.

I IMd with Pete the other night and asked him to mention this subject to you. I only did so because all other attempts to reach you have failed.

Russell, please respond.

--Towel Boy

I don't understand why my good friend would COMPLETELY IGNORE my every attempt to contact him. Russell Sprague...legendary character, good-hearted soul, and friend to all. Why would this person I've never had any falling out with, that I've lived with, that has pretended to be asleep on the other bed of a hotel room in AC while I tried to have sex with a hooker on coke...why won't Kingfox answer Towel Boy?

Sure it makes you angry. But it really makes you hurt. It's sad to think of someone who you genuinely cared about just never responding again, without even knowing the reason.

With friends like these, who needs Mr. Box?
