I've not been doing too much with the Google Plussing, but I made this JoCo/Star Trek mash-up today and I'm quite proud of it. What think you guys?

Hey, Tokyo people!

I'm looking to sell my year-old Mac Mini while I'm in Tokyo near the end of this month. There's nothing wrong with it, I just want to get one of the new Minis before exchanging my yens for worthless dollars.

I bought it for ¥68000, and then recently put ¥5000 worth of memory into it. It's pretty blazing fast for everything except brand new video games, but who does that on a Mac anyway?

I'm looking to sell for ¥30000, or best offer. I think that's fairly reasonable considering the age of the computer and that I'll deliver!

If you want to know more, or if you're interested, just reply to this post, send me a private Plus-Post, or, I suppose email me at gregoryharbin@gmail.com. Also feel free to Share this post or tell any of your friends who might be looking for a cheap new desktop.

Are you reading this comic? Because you really should be.
It's Wednesday! I updated my comic (4 pages)! I don't have much else to say!

I've not been as active on G+ as I'd like…Twitter's so much easier to use.

But you G+ folks should really check out this latest episode of the Star Trek podcast I do with +Christopher Jones. It's funny, engaging, intelligent, and really, really long. Yeah, it's over two hours. Split it up. Listen in chunks. Even if it takes a week to listen, that's fine.

We talk about getting Marina Sirtis on Dancing With The Stars, I stump Chris with a trivia question, Chris tells what he'd like to see changed for the TNG Blu-Ray, and then we discuss Star Trek: Generations, which somehow turns out to be one of my favorite Trek films. Dunno how that happened.

Let me know what you think!

Cute!
In between updates update! I needed a new comic on the front page, so you get the 20th early. I can't believe how fast this month is going.

Project 500.

Today's the first official day of my 'write 500 words a day' project. I've been talking about it some on here, and I was considering posting everything on here, but I think in the end G+ is just a little too fuzzy for what I'm wanting. So I made a Wordpress blog.

http://gregharbin.wordpress.com/

The posts will be password-protected, at least at first. If you want the password, please just ask me for it, I'm going to be pretty loose.

The plan, my veritable pledge to you the reader, is to write 500 words a day, 5 days a week, for the next 5 weeks. If this goes well, I'll extend it to 5 months. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Today's 500 words are from a science fiction story that I've fully outlined, but keep having trouble actually sitting down and writing. Consider this the 'first, rough draft' version of a novel that will hopefully be out someday. And that'll be true of everything I write. While some non-fiction might slip in from time to time, my plan is to throw several stories up into the air and work on juggling them as long as I can. The stories that interest me (and hopefully, you) the most will get written more, and get closer to that awesome finished first draft phase, which is where the real fun begins.

So, please, join me on this adventure of productivity and creation. I hope it'll be as fun for you as it will be for me.

Now there's a Venn diagram I can get behind! Looking forward to being one of those 'streaming only' customers when I move back to the States next month.

I love this drawing!
Love, Life, and Earthquakes is getting updated tomorrow. However, here's the page from the 18th for your previewing pleasure. It features +Emi Lenox's Ocean Girl. I'll admit that I have no clue what the official Ocean Girl colors are...

Is there any way to use my iPad as the display for my Mac Mini? Not a second display…the only display. During the transition between Japan and America, I'm going to be without a monitor for a couple weeks, and I'd like to be at LEAST able to mess with iTunes so I can sync my iPad and iPhone from time to time.

Aside from that…anyone in Tokyo want to let me borrow an LCD screen for a week?
