While I’m still ramping up at the new gig, I’ve found a love of code again and recently launched new side project. I may still work on it yet, but chances are I’ll leave it be for a bit while I pursue other interests (hey, it works well as is and I’m not shipping it :-p).

I just got back to work after a lovely, lovely break, and will get back to blogging Real Things soon. In the meantime, recording a milestone:

This weekend I treated myself and bought the first Deluxe Set of Y: The Last Man (issues 1–10, I had the second set before by a happy accident). It’s really a marvelous comic, and suggest people take a look at it.
My friend Lyn has a comic of her own, which I also greatly enjoy. I keep petitioning for the inclusion of another character, and maybe one day my calls will be met.
