Shiny New GoComics

GoComics, the home of Brainwaves online, has been redesigned with various new bells and whistles - check it out!

GoComics has carried Brainwaves for a long time, over 5 years 6 days a week. That's a whole lotta cartoons. I really appreciate their support.

By the way, I hear that the emailed version of the cartoons is getting smushed into some rectangular shape for an unknown reason - I've alerted them that this is happening, so I hope the pixels get moved back to their proper places soon! But the cartoon looks just fine on the site.

I think online and phones and Kindles and such are the future of cartoons, particularly the single-panel type -- since they display the best and don't require you to scroll or anything. I'm hoping for a day when people can pull up one of my cartoons or a collection like I've got for Kindle, then turn around and send it to a friend to brighten their day. We're getting closer all the time!

Your call is important to us...

Ah yes, it's such fun to go back and look at the early ones.

I'm thinking of this one because I'm about to try to turn off two TiVo boxes. You see, I've upgraded to the monster big HD TiVo - which you would think is a good thing, but they really really want me to keep paying for service to the two smaller boxes that I'm not using. The whole DVR thing is pretty weird - you get a box, there's a number on it, there' s a service attached to the number... anyway, I'm going to dive into the great ocean known as Customer Service, and they are counting on me giving up and continuing to pay them. This is a Business Model.

UPDATE: That wasn't so bad! I retired Bruce and Bono and am keeping Gigantor. Yay for unexpectedly easy customer service experiences! I will continue to love TiVo.

Cartoon Humor, Working stiff files (part 2)

Here is another installment of the working stiff files. This one comes to us from a place I was about three years ago, a place that many people have been or are currently at today. Yes, the dreaded micro-manager…..the guy who can’t do the work themselves but knows exactly how, when and why you should do it. I always thought that was ironic in nature. I think back to a time when I was required to do be on a conference call on Christmas day to talk about some technical stats that I could not have any effect on that day because no one else but the management was working that day. Long story short I ended up in a place that my cell did not work and missed the call. Oddly enough, nothing ever happened as a result except the birth of this cartoon. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.
