I was checking the stats for the site just now when I saw a lot of hits to my page about the Moon being up during the day (http://badastronomy.com/bad/misc/moonday.html). Turns out, a rather popular web comic called Mac Hall (http://www.machall.com/index.php?strip_id=326) links to it.

ADULT LANGUAGE WARNING at the Mac Hall link, thanks to some poster named "A Gerbil".

Otherwise, that's great! Good to see someone linking to a real science site.

He's Ian McConville - very vocal, isn't he? :wink:

Quite.

You know, when I first glanced at the Subject of this thread as listed in "BABBling: The BABB Community", I misread "Hall" for a similar word, and thought the thread might be about the BA having left the world of PCs and migrated to the tiny domain of the Mac, which can be "heck" for persons who had spent all their time in PCLand.

I'll never forget when I found out in the 1980s (having been forced to work in both worlds) that the way to eject a floppy disk when using a Mac was to drag into the trash. Now that's intuitive!

Mac Hall is a great little comic. Nice to see him keeping up with your site. :)
