Is your keyboard Sith-approved?
I must have one to go with my Pistol Mouse.
If you thought you were a touch typist then prove it!! Use a keyboard without the burden of key labels. Heh.
Now that I have a place to put my quasi-technical babble over at MSDN, the space is reserved for me to spew my political bile and enjoy all things sci-fi. Heh.
Comp sci grads turn away from tech
With U.S. jobs going away, consulting becomes popular
Not to say I told you so (to all of those ignorant sl--, nevermind, in high school and college who missed out on MY opportunity), but survey sez, "I told you so." Heh. Besides, this little piece in the NYT is simple validation. Today, Darth Reed is no longer unemployed! I'll try not to gloat. Heh.
There are three that I read daily (sometimes I have to check the slacker of the three several times because he’s always late - somebody wake up Kurtz!). These three by far replace any newsprint “comic”. The Darth Reed clan doesn’t even get a daily dead tree news source anymore; we haven’t for more than six years… When the Washtington Times and the Journal start selling RSS feeds, I’ll buy those.

I’ve bought more than my fair share of their paraphernalia (collection books, comic books, t-shirts, etc) for myself and as gifts. I think they’re a totally different niche from Peanuts, obviously, and far less irritating than Doonesbury and the rest of the whiners… [Cathy did have a funny strip once… It was about REALTORS®, which was what made it funny — but tomorrow’s my last day writing software for REALTORS®, so it won’t be funny for much longer, I hope.] As for me and my family, we’d love to see somebody with Rush Limbaugh’s wit and politics take to the web comic scene. Heh!
There are two others that I read whenever the author is sober enough and can find the Wacom tablet with both hands:
http://www.bugbash.net/ (off to a good start weekly)
http://www.dorktower.com/ (highly irregular posting schedule and somewhat niche — even I don’t play paper-n-pencil RPGs anymore)
Checking up on my favorite web comics is just part of the daily stress-relief routine. Just like everything else, they miss more often than they hit, but I am REALLY, REALLY glad that y’all take the time out of your lives to share your humor with us!!
Long live the Empire.
