Well, after the computer problems we went through last year killed the annual calendar…we made up our mind to get one done this year. Well, we got it done. The link to it is on the left hand side of the page. Hopefully, you’ll all like it.
Well, we made it this far anyway….;)
And thanks for sticking with us for so long. To celebrate we have two wallpapers for you….
And this little thing called…
As for the state of the hardware, we just got done upgrading our main render rig over here (new case, graphic card, more fans, power supply and cooler) and recovering from three wisdom teeth being pulled (and one partial dry socket ) Let me tell you, there is nothing quite like dealing with computer wires while on Vicodin. Now I just need to come up with a final name for her…
As for the state of the strip: Right now, we’re coming into the final 25% of the comic right now. Things are coming to the end (at least for this strip. Of course, things will be continued with various members of the cast in Requiems followup (you won’t get rid of us that easy )
And to put some questions to rest, the ending to Requiem has already been written…as has most of it’s followup. The ending for that has been done as well
Right now though, we’re going to be with The Gage Household for a while longer, and then we’ll be back in the Southlands.
See ya there!
Work machine is in the shop again, along with the comic files for corrections and such. So, if you notice something off, let me know on the comment section as usual, and it’ll get fixed when my machine is back in the house.
My main work rig is giving me hell again. It will be going into the shop on Friday the 16th. I will not have access to some of the stuff that I use to create this comic, which means that errors won’t be fixed until I return. I’m on my backup right now. We have two weeks of Requiem in the can, and DGN is covered until the end of the year. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I guess that sums it up better than about anything else I can say. Things have been more than a bit chaotic with things. Two and a half weeks of being without my work computer (which occurred right in the middle of what I’ve come to call the ‘Four Hotties In a Bar’ sequence) set me back more than a bit. Not to mention the persistent flu symptoms and inner ear problems that have left me sick to my stomach and generally irritable as all hell. And if that wasn’t enough to dance with, I’ve been fighting off the first onset of carpal tunnel as well. (Squishy wrist rest mouse pads, and switiching over from a metal watch band to a Nato Strap has helped a hell of a lot.)
Sorry for the general grouchiness on my end, and the chaos that seeped into the creation process as well. For a while, I was genuinely afraid that the main files (and backups) of the comic were not going to be accessible when my PC went China Syndrome. Which also helped contribute to my ‘sick stomach’ feeling.
As for what is going on now….DGN is still updating again, and there will be some art gifts on that project…..And I am desperately trying to get next years calendar done….and, and, and, and, and…. Well, you know how it goes. Things are stil crazy, and I am desperately trying to get my buffer back again.
At any rate, thanks for reading. I hope you all survive the holiday season coming up, and I’ll try to be a little more vocal in the comments section with what is going on in the future.
Oh, and on a tangential note, the Hamilton Khaki King on a G10 Nato Strap is one of the most comfortable wrist combinations you can get (especially if you wear your watch on the right wrist like I do.)
