Poor chibi-Jes. How does she reach the foot pedal? To be fair, Perfect Drug is a bitch on drums. Like all NiN.

We'll be relocating to our hew home this weekend. So theres a good chance the comic might be held back if I don't get it done before this weekend for next week.

Side note. CJ7 is pretty awesome.

George is a terrible person.

So remember that Cherub and Bear image I made the video of for Genericon? And how it was inspired by some bloke named George? Yeah, the comic is an example of what I ment.

He's known for saying terrible things while at the same time still being totally awesome. It's like having the physical manifestation of your evil conscience, that has no concept of the word 'subtlety', hang out with you.

Random note, last week's comic was was some what inspired by our quest around here to find housing. Happily that hunt came to an end this weekend. As nice as that is, I'll continue to worry about the the whole thing until we've moved in. So much to take care of.

But more on that later.

Yeah, cleats, I guess.

Nicholas Gurewitch is putting the Perry Bible Fellowship into retirement.

He's the best at what he does, so it's sad to see him hang up his cartooning cleats.

Epic'ish

What is it about 'To be Continued' that makes things seem epic? All I wanted to do was make sure people understood this last two was a pair, but I think I made things worse.

Aw well.

Bonus Tracks

So Animation on Display was this last weekend. I think Matt and I gave our absolute worst 'Mac Hall' panel to date. Guh, so out of practice with these cons. If you were there, I apologize completely. However, thanks be to Dom and Jes for adding director's commentary to our bombing panel.

Wide-Eyed

GDC has moved into the convention hall across the street from my office. Which would explain why there's been random parades of students coming through here this week. Nice folk.

Stealth

Man, while adorable, this ninja's outfit must be drafty.

Store Stuff X: The Final Reckoning
February 14, 2008, 21:48 EST
 
The new store is ALIVE!

Now you can save by bundling your orders with swag from other comics that are actually sort of better than this one, comics like Dr. McNinja and Dresden Codak and others. It's a strategic alliance.

(Prints will be making the transition to the new store tomorrow-like.)

Almost forgot to mention this, but we should be at Animation on Display (AoD) this weekend. Man, we really need to announce this stuff sooner.

Even more store stuff
February 7, 2008, 04:36 EST
 

We've put up a temporary store for the prints.

The new and improved Topatoco store is actually going to be coming up over the weekend after they do some security testing, so we're just using this in the meantime.

Once the new store is up, you'll be able to bundle a whole bunch of stuff from a whole bunch of other comics and save on shipping.

There's also new inventory tracking and whatever, but you don't care about that.

Surprise! A Chibi-Comic Attacks!
February 7, 2008, 04:27 EST
 
Hey look at that, another comic spawned. Must have had a server restart.

A while ago, I asked for input on Tablet PCs. I promised to report back when I made my final decision. Just wanted to give a heads up that my plans for such a purchase is on hold for now but the info you have fired my way has been archived and is very much appreciated. Until I am able to settle on a choice, I just thought I would mention the overwhelming recommendation of the Toshiba models or a Cintiq. While the Cintiq looks to have great sensitivity, I still would like a mobile solution.

Anyway, that will be something to mull over down the road.

Also, Wakfu Series. The last two artists I've talked about actually work for that game company, in case the art style wasn't obvious. Two things about this though... This guy is a living portal gun? And, this girl is twelve?

Thanks to everyone who sent in iPhone hints. I knew about the ringtone exploit and the IM web apps, but I didn't know you could get wallpapers on there by setting a photo folder to sync.

It's still irritating to me that I have to jump through hoops for a lot of these things. In short, I like all the parts where it works properly, I hate all the parts that look like someone from the phone company insisted it not work properly. And all the parts like menu-based voicemail where the iPhone manages to stamp out some entrenched cell phone obnoxiousness? I love those.

The coming SDK will hopefully render most complaints moot.

Ok, got the iPhone.
January 31, 2008, 04:11 EST
 
Now, some impressions. Timely, I know.

I'm in Apple's corner to begin with. My G4 iBook has been my main work computer for years. I like OS X because if I think it should be able to do something, it probably can. Plus, whatever that something is, the process for doing it is usually my first guess.

So when I fired up the iPhone, I figured, hey, this thing must have some kind of IM application, right? I've seen commercials for other fancy phones with that feature. My ancient battered phone could do that, even if it was too clunky to use.

Well, no. You have to use SMS, and pay a fee for the privilege if you send too many.

And since this thing holds all my music, I can set some of it as a ringtone, yes? I could upload MIDIs to my ancient phone via bluetooth.

Nope. You can only use 99 cent iTunes Store music files as ringtones, and even then you have to pay another 99 cents to enable it.

Uploading custom wallpapers? Not that I can tell.

This feels like the most un-Apple-like product I've ever used. Everything I think I should be able to do, I either outright can't or have to find some workaround.

That said...

For all the gripes, it was invaluable during Genericon for finding directions on the fly, checking email and approving Project Wonderful ads, especially since my aforementioned iBook's power cord finally frayed to pieces. It's the very definition of "I wouldn't pay for it, but I use it every day."
