    Yay Beav. Sounds awesome. I'll be doing the hunt soon. Living with my mum after being out of home for 6 years is totally, uh, cramping my style, shall we say.

    I'm just curious as to why CAD is still around. It's such a pile of crap, I can't believe it has a fan base to begin with. Let alone a good sized one.

    it's like a little 3 level country home inside an apartment building. It's 3 levels, well.. 2 and a half, the top floor is just a really cute loft. all tile and dark colored laminate (fake hardwood)
    the residents that are in there now are clean, very nice professional women, and I can move in as early as next week.
    I AM SO RELIEVED RIGHT NOW!

    You can afford that on artist money?

    EDIT: Wow, I just realized that's kind of an invasive question.

    But it stands.

    Funnier, though the original was still one of CAD's better strips.

    I blame the fact that someone getting their skull beaten in with a book that thick is ALWAYS funny.

    Based off of my own anecdotal evidence, I prefer doing art'stuffs on a mac because the OS seems far more intuitive for it than a PC. Does this mean the same level of art done on a Mac can't be done on a PC? Not at all, it's just become my own preference to do design work on a Mac when I can.

    Wait, you mean people like different things for different reasons? I'm shocked! Shocked, I say!

    I ALREADY MADE THAT JOKE/STATEMENT!

    In other news, I'm 9 sheets to the wind and loving it! Just got back from a Murder By Death concert and my ears are still ringing!

    The man's a marketing genius if you think about it. The more of an ass he is and the shittier he makes his strips, the more people bitch about it in forums - hence giving him more exposure and site traffic than he deserves

    Atleast here the chello players look more convincing. SOS / Apocalyptica. Out of the local acts I think they are one of my favourites.

    naw i'm pretty open about this stuff
    I make 36,000/ year in my entry level graphic art position.
    I don't know how that compares to other artist salaries?

    I also still do freelance work which gets me around 400/month depending on what sort of jobs I'm doing/how many jobs I'm involved with at the time.

    thanks for the well-wishing all!

    Nah I think that's about right on Beavo. I don't make quite that much where I'm working right now, but the job I was planning on having out in San Fran. was exactly that much. Plus I've got a few other friends who are in Graphic Design and all started out in the 30-38k for design type jobs. More than that for starting out is rare as far as what I've seen.

    Edit: Is that true Beavo? Do you consume infants, if so... this could complicate our interrelationship.

    Tonight was Prom night in the city, and you could tell who the spotty teenagers with no chance of getting laid were because instead of dressing up nice and dry humping each other on the dance floor, they were wearing guy fawkes masks and holding up internet memes on the street in "protest" of scientology.

    I had a pretty good laugh at their expense.

    Go with the 4GB memory option. But make sure that you have an OS that can utilize all four.

    That footage is certaily from the nineties Grifter. Those are normal russian police uniforms and they probably couldn't afford color film. I'm also pretty certain that all pop music is composed by swedish elves in University of Upsala University.

    Call in to see if you can get an XP option - sometimes it doesn't show up online as it's a special request.

    If you go XP or 32-bit Vista then the 4GB of RAM is a waste - XP can only address 3.25GB.
