Oh, pfftt. Second post for this, I think the first one went to
private email rather than the list.

   But... I'm still in /trauma/ from being yelled at after killing off 
Needs-A-Shave-And-A-Haircut-And-A-Bath Man...   :-)

Tsk. Isn't that just so like human nature? You create not one, but two 
perfectly good Public Domain series, and everybody ignores them while 
using one of your non-PD titles.

Thank you. I apologise for the confusion and hassle.

Fair enough. Keep in mind that I was after the format though, so
other people might decide simply create their own daily series.

Okay. As far as I can tell that was the only reference to Cain that I 
was planning on using in any case, so the point should be moot.

I was thinking of the main character from the Omen movies. Making lots 
of bad sock puns would probably lead back to the Sockforce Mortai gag, 
and... we probably don't want to go there.
