*cough first comment cough* Please don’t shoot me for that. Anyway, I love the art style you’re using for the humans now, and great little touch with the nose ring! I have a feeling Lisa is going to need another Tetris chill pill soon, lol. Keep up the good work! ;3
Think he plays wow? Anyway, love the comic. Keep up the good work.
Ouch, using CS4 on a Panther machine? Sounds like a recipe for disaster! I actually happen to have a 2004 PPC, but it’s running Leopard (and CS4 works okay.) I doubt Panther could handle CS4. I like Lisa’s nervous reaction to talking to Patrick again. The twiddling fingers are funny
ha! That is why I bypassed the administrative structure and went straight to IT when I started my new job. It pays to be nice to the IT group. Now I have the fastest CPU, a nice GFX card and two monitors. When I started working, I had the computer equivalent of a sundial. It couldn’t even load a PDF, much less photoshop.
Gary, good idea. Be nice to IT, people!
A place that I freelance at has a few Power PC hold outs, and I get put on them all the time. I don’t complain as Lisa does here, but man, doing HD compositing in After Effects on those things is sloooow.
I wonder if they read your comic? 😛
Mary, as a long time IT guy (20+ years now…sigh) I can tell you there are exactly two types of IT guys. The hardcore mac-centric, gadget pr0n, linux booster that doesnt play games and can show you the most convoluted and difficult way to do anything, but hell he drives a prius! And the Gamer that took a job in IT so he can get parts for his rig at wholesale. Every company should have at least one of the former and a couple of the later. The former will likely be in the server room trying to figure out a way to make his desktop users suffer for supporting pc, while the later will be the guys with their monitor strategically facing away from where you can see them, randomly giggling and repeating stuff from the most recent internet meme. These are the guys you should utilize. Tell them your a gamer and the fact that your also a cute girl will instantly insure you get anything you want by just whispering at your desk that you might like it. Hell they will probably end up competing to see who can give you the coolest stuff! The down side is they will also take every excuse to come to your desk or corner you in the lunch room. Just act interested and they will take off running like you sprouted a two extra heads.

I’m now thinking about every IT guy I’ve worked with and filing them away in one category or the other.
Hahaha! I have this same problem at my job! I animate and design in Flash and having an old, so old, computer makes work so slow! I’ve been with the company for a year and we are finally getting upgrades this year, I can’t wait!
