So here’s a funny joke.
Turns out the tablet may never have been broken at all.
Dad took it to work and tried fixing it, never thinking to check if it worked on his computers at work. To his credit, I was pretty convincing in my “is borked” arguments. So he gets it to power on, new USB cord and such, brings it back, it won’t work on the laptop. Take it to the living room, it powers on fine, acknowledges when the pen touches it, but now it’s not relaying that to the computer.
Basically, over the past few weeks, my laptop has lost the following all but completely: USB support, the ability to consistently read and eject the CD drive, and I think my SD doesn’t work either. I still have the Internet, obviously, and the the PC is working fine on it’s own, it’s just the external parts that let me, like, put anything on it.
If the tablet gets fixed, I’ll probably have to work in the living room. Until it gets fixed, I may have to invade LM’s already ludicrously impossible schedule to use his computer somehow, which would be completely evil of me… so I’m not sure how to go about this right now.
What this means to you guys is next week there probably will be a comic. This Monday’s is already done and set up, the tablet died a couple days later, and I’ve roughed out the layout for the week after, it needs sketching and the line work. What the lack of a tablet here means is I’ll probably have to work on the next page at LM’s by some manner of magic voodoo, so until further notice, don’t expect any color after tonight’s page. I’ll try and keep you guys in the loop on this.
Moar con photo! (anyone know why i simply can’t get these to center? It’s annoyin’. Guess i should go eyeball my CSS or somethin’)
