Penguin hiatus 2018

Post by opusthepenguin » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:24 am

My annual retreat is upon us. Today is my last day on the board until Monday, April 2. I'll be going dark after tonight's game. I'll still be reachable via PM (or, of course, shining the Penguin signal in the night sky). I think. Gmail started marking JBoard notifications as spam. I think I've got that sorted out, but maybe not.

But I've been saving this toon for a Titanic clue to show up on J!. Sorry I don't know how to insert the graphic, maybe someone will do it for me:

Math works out. (Or maybe just the board?)
