Cat’s face in panel 2 is hystaricle!
The cat’s face in panel two is adorable XD. And I wonder how many people don’t have their title yet.
EVIL CATS! I think that one is feeling guilty. hehe =D
Pure gold, as always. Also, is it illegal to trade animal intestines for WoW gold? Because me and the kitties might be able to strike up a deal. *shifty eyes*
Very good today, wish i had my own portal gun
ANOTHER GREAT COMIC!!!! great job merry!
what server are u on?
Thanks for the comments guys! Drathar, I’m on Lothar…but I probably can’t play for a while. My laptop’s overheating a lot, but I’ll be back in NYC and on my trusty desktop in mid June.
RE: overheating laptops – try cleaning the fan – that does the most for laptops that are running hot. Hint: you go in thru the keyboard in most – so cautiously loosen and lift the keyboard and you should see the fan assembly. I cleaned one of the well-used kids’ laps the other day and there was a feltlike mat of dust across the exhaust port. It has worked loads better since!
Thanks for the tip Sombraa! I’m on a Macbook (first gen, so bad for WoW, I know), so I can’t remove the keyboard, but there are other ways of taking this hotcake apart! I might try to get a few more comics done before I risk it.
Ah, another Macbook user. A wise lady indeed.
As for the overheating issue, from what I understand they tend to run rather hot, and even worse when under intense use. My Intel Macbook Pro frequently runs at 180º-190º F when I’m playing WoW; and I’ve even had it hit the emergency shut off a few times from running too hot. I know its unsolicited, but a couple tips for ya: First off, I downloaded a program called smcFanControl to help make sure my fans are running at top speed when things get hot. Secondly, whatever you can do to minimize surface contact on the bottom side of the laptop should help your laptop stay cooler. And lastly, turn down whatever graphics settings you don’t need (ESPECIALLY the “Specular Lighting”) and/or limit the framerate [/console maxfps #] to reduce stress on the processor.
Hope that helps. Oh, and BTW, thanks for the great comics.
Thanks Galmr! Tips always appreciated. I’m not totally sure if it’s restarting because of overheating, but I assume it is since it gets really hot when I run WoW, and also when I stream video, during which it also restarts. I have it propped up and already have smcFanControl (discovered it last week), and the fps set to 15. I’ll double check the specular lighting!
I never had this problem before, it may just be because I’m in a pretty warm apartment. It’s been happening since the patch. If I can fix it before heading back to New York I’ll definitely Tweet about it!
Hasn’t Blizzard sent you a cease & Desist Letter yet?
seriously mary,, i just found your comic tonight at work and read every one of them.. you have literally made me laugh out loud numerous times ^_^ this is awesome definitely keep this going!
if my cats gave me a working portal gun it would be a VERY big mistake… MWAHAHAHAHA
An Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device?! If I had one, I would never be late to school again! Of course, I would spend more time at home playing Neverwinter Nights and Pokemon HeartGold…
i read your comics on patch day… starting from number 1 to the newest every time and they never get old! also when i am high-jacking the local grocery store’s wifi for patch downloads… (Verison has a 5gb limit for 60$ pluss 20$ if u have insurance Dx highway robbery! if u go over that limit they drop you down to a little higher then dial-up) i often giggle a bit too loudly and a few of the old grandmas look at me with worried faces :3
btw, just because you have a macbook doesnt make it impossible to open up, theres a secret way, i would have that thing open in 2 minutes
For some reason I decided to re-read the old comics, and saw Bink saying he’s gonna call his DK “PuppyslAyer” even before I started reading these comics I named my DK “Meowmix”
