We were feeling cooped up in the house, so we found a much smaller one to stay in for a few days.
Patreon reward idea: Every 3 months you get a different “Incredible Doom” floppy, with a new label design & files on it like characters’ emails to each-other, their ASCII art, etc. + a clue to a secret URL to download those files if you don’t have a drive. Fun? Not fun?
Birthday presents from girlfriend. She got them with the help of the good folks at Books With Pictures. They are great. (The books, my girlfriend, and the folks.)
I get to talk about my log secret project this week. Stay tuned.
I worked at a computer store for years and years, until just recently. It’s remarkable how much of this interaction feels the same today.

I’ve oficially entered the phase of life where I have to midigate RSI.
All it took was a pandemic for girlfriend to watch an Apple event with me. (jk. I don’t blame her)
Stopped by here as twitter was giving me heart problems. (had a video call with a doctor & everything) I’m not sure I have a lot to post, but I have to say … this place is so nice. Thank you to everyone I follow here for posting thoughtful, kind things.
Oh gosh. This hold music for Ting customer support is the end credits music for Buckaroo Banzai.
Anyone want a free Incredible Doom post card? Just order anything from your local comic shop, let me know what you bought and your address and it’s on its way!
I did some fan art from readers suggestions. Here’s Hector and Ari from Bloom, The Tick, Ralph from The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Amy Racecar from Stray Bullets, Matt Feazells Cynicalman, and Magnus Robot Fighter (featuring Tara Bot).
