If you're wondering where all the updates are... well, I can't say as I blame you. Unfortunately for everyone including myself, I've been sucked into creating Emergency Security Documentation for my day job, and anyone who has ever done Security Documentation will tell you that it is an event horizon of stress and despair. It's eating up pretty much all of my time and everything else has been pushed to the side.

18 years ago today the first ever Help Desk was published in the archives of the OS/2 e-Zine! webzine. It was 12.8kb in size and the editor was still a little nervous the graphic was too big, because back in those days we had to use dial-up modems to--

What was dial-up, you ask? ... um, well, it was when you used your landline phone to--

... What's a landline? Seriously? Oh. Um. Well, OK, it's  like when you try to use your phone to tether your laptop, but your phone company throttles your bandwidth when you tether, only it wasn't a business decisions, it was an actual technical limitation.

Anyway. 18. If you'll excuse me, I think my comic needs to register for selective service...

Congratulations that is actually quite an accomplishment. Shows amazing will, determination and tenacity.Oh and IMHO that first Help Desk might actually be funnier today then it was when you wrote it. Good job.

I wasn't for Pistols, neither Clash. Tom Verlaine and Richard Hell and Costello and Ian Dury were the stuff.

So one of the side effects of Help Desk turning 18 is that I published a new PCtown. PCtown is my computer-noir mystery set in the 30s sort of don't think about that part too hard it'll just make your head hurt. It's also the most difficult of my comics to work on, because it requires that I actually make an effort to draw. So, for example, the script for this comic has been sitting around in various computer files for FIVE FREAKING YEARS but I could never bring myself to try to draw that first damn panel.

(Those of you who actually do the drawing thing may view the first panel, squint, cock your head to one side and mutter "really? That's the hard part?" To which I can only say: well, that's fair enough. But consider the original script required three panels of people on strike, one of which included a parade with  a banner held between two guys, down main street, with Pinkerton detectives standing to one side. Those extra panels were abandoned when the first panel of this comic took me FIVE HOURS TO DRAW. What can I say, my goals are fundamentally impractical.)

Work is merrily kicking my ass all over the place. To clarify: it is being merry. I am caught in the wake of my ass being kicked.

That aside, there's a new Help Desk today.

re: kernel panic
I'm tempted to share this with some co-workers in Alaska and on the North Slope.
I would probably be yelled at.

I'm trying out Scribl, a new publishing site that uses a "crowdsourced" model to set the price of a book. I put Pay Me, Bug! up to see how the service works. Since it's a new, untested book it's currently free.
