Then how come the publisher there can decide anything to print based on
"they think the story will be too complicated for the readers"??? Another
example of wrongfully market research and rating perhaps. I'm sorry but i'm
still confused how the publisher there can think that a story may be too
complicated for scandinavian readers and not with the non-scandinavian ones.

Huh? But i thought you only do a story one at a time. Then this means you're
doing a new Lo$ *and* the 3C, am i wrong about this??? Or perhaps you have
finished the Lo$ one?

Confused??? No, what i meant was:
Another 3C than the original, meaning you want to do a 3C story but never
done it before.
Another 3C than your pre-scripted one, meaning you want to make "another" 3C
story which means you'll end up making 2 3C stories.
It seems that i don't give quite an explanation, maybe this will still be
confusing since i was unable to say in a more correct way, sorry for my bad
english. Anyway i know you know what i was trying to say.

That was a stupid question to ask after i think for a while. I mean what
kind of a story will fit in before the Lo$ chapters, make no sense, oh

Yep:-) Currently one of my favorites.

No-no-no, saya yang seharusnya minta maaf. Maafin yah? Pleaze...BTW the
reason i said something about drugs is because in Indonesian drugs have been
sold to elementary kids. Imagine that. X( What will my next generation be?
This drug business is really bothering me now. Well, i'm sure no one in this
DCML use drugs except well medicine drugs;-)

Ups, i'm really really sorry about that^_^;; i must have "looked" like a
fool trying to be a wiseguy babbling without even knowing what i say. I am
really sorry about that. Luckily you looked like the kind of person who can
understand my "little" mischief. ^_^;;

> Second, you might need a couple of books.
Ah, yes, i might have to learn more. i really don't know about Capra cause i
never seen his movies played here, at least as far as i know. And the
"lining" thing i never heardof it before too. Mostly is "silver lightning"
in the clouds that i heard most so please forgive me for my stupidity.

i must put more efforts to my vocabularies, there's so much more i don't
know. But i really appreciate that you have broaden my horizons, thanks and
sorry of course.

> "Put it in your pipe and smoke it!"
Well, errr, this.....errr...i don't know the meaning of this one. Anyone can
tell me what's the meaning of it.
Man, i feel like a jerk. Sorry all:-) for tryin' to be a wiseguy or somethin
like that, i mean.

BTW one question i am curious about. Since this is the year 2000 now and
the comic coding usually used the last two digits only before 2000. So i
wander any example of the new coding? Couldn't be D 00120 right? That will
mean it was published 1900 cause it's not Y2K ready;-) Anyway i'm curious.
Perhaps somebody has the answer.
