News post – Catch-23 No. 958 Blu-Ray Remorse

You Blu-Ray owners know what Jaffa’s talking about. It’s a gamble, when you pay a bit extra for better picture, sound and behind-the-scenes extras, but if the movie sucks, all that stuff is worthless.

Perhaps Jaffa should have just watched it on Netflix or something first. Hindsight is 20/20 and all that.

I’m off on holidays so there will be a couple of weeks until the next comic strip.

News post – Catch-23 No. 957 Daylight savings

There’s always something amiss after the daylight savings change, some routine thing that catches you out. Our devices are getting smarter and will update the time for us, but there are still a lot of dumb devices and it seems like every appliance has a clock that needs changing twice a year.

When I was brainstorming the strip, the old ‘spring forward, fall back’ phrase stuck out – it’s so useful, but it could work both ways and really mess you up if you misremember it, or some ginger cat steers you wrong.

News post – Catch-23 No. 956 Sportsball

There’s two football grand finals on in one weekend and I would be hard pressed to tell you who was playing in either.

The term ‘sportsball’ got it’s start back in 2010 with this video. Since then, it’s become internet shorthand for any sport that has ‘ball’ in the name.

May your chosen sportsball team score all of the points.
