Cry Havoc, and Let Slip The Dogs of War...

I submitted Comic 194 to Webcomic Battle. The site shows pairings of comics and readers vote on which is funnier. They only prize for winning is going on to the next day's competition, and perhaps lasting enough days to end up in the Hall of Fame. If you'd like to help out, click the button below. You may have to work your way through the sets of comics (click the "Battles" button at the top left until you see the "Please Understand Me" comic that is today's competitor (you'll have to scroll down to see my comic), then click "Ask Dr. Eldritch #194 - Says You" at the bottom).

Vote For Us on Webcomic Battle!

If you have any favorite comic(s) that you think would be good to enter into competition, feel free to post a comment!

And BTW, I'm doing this for the exposure, not for any sense of validation that I'm funnier than the other webcomic artists. You know that, right?

Must Be Thursday

Somehow, despite hardly being at work all week, it’s 5:30 pm on Thursday, and I haven’t gotten tomorrow’s comic ready. Instead of working on that until all I have the strength for is watching TV, I’m posting to LJ first. All part of the service, but tips are appreciated...

This morning, sanguinity and I experimented with Hiveminder and RememberTheMilk a bit. They seem to do well as task managers for one person, and can handle groups, but neither was providing the information the way I’d hoped to see it: high level project lists for multiple participants, with the ability to drive down to the task lists of individual projects. We may come back to the Wiki idea.

Then it was time to go check in at work.

After I got home again, I rediscovered the experience of being too tired for anything I was supposed to be working on. And like Tuesday, I napped for a while, and felt immensely better. This poor-sleep cycle feels like a resurgence of candidas, brought on by a fondness of Holiday Food (especially vegan pumpkin pie). I’m hoping that reducing my sugar and wheat intake, and increasing my level of exercise, will help normalize my sleeping patterns again. I won’t have the luxury of Nap Time next week.

So now to work on the comic. More news, as it happens (and when I get around to posting about it)...
