Completely off-topic: How to colorize a classic strip......

As you will no doubt recall, Lynn tends to behave as if the recoloring job that Kevin Strang does is some sort of technical wizardry that's so complex, it is the reason that she failed to synch up the Sunday strips. I'd like to remind us that this is not quite the case. To that end, I'd like to share with you the results of a little experiment I'd performed. First, I selected a Sunday strip at random: this strip from when the strip was still readable seemed the most appropriate jumping-off point.

The first thing I did was save the image file to my hard drive. Next, I'd used Paint.Net to add in the modern-day logo so as to simulate what I think the first stage of modernization must be. Next, I added in the backgrounds so as to emulate the ones we associate with the new-ruin era. After that step came hair color, skin color, clothing and, finally, the gifts Elly was wrapping. All told, it took me about half an hour to do.
