Rushed again this week, but here’s the latest page. You might notice I’m not the best with lettering sound effects, but hopefully the idea gets across…

I’m late this week again, sorry. I usually post these every Monday morning, but things have just been busy lately.

In the comic, the battle begins…

A long, tiring week of a new role at my day job. DSCOMIC is a hobby, as you can tell from the slow weekly posting and lack of much blog content below (other than lamenting the changes at Entrecard causing me to drop their widget).

But the show must go on, and the webcomic will continue…

Goodbye Entrecard

Filed under: 3 — Tags: , — admin @ 6:45 pm

I just received an email from Entrecard, and this is the final straw for me…

“Advertise on the ENTIRE Entrecard network for only $10!

We’re running a super special promotion on the Entrecard network. Right now, for only $10, we can run your ad across our entire network with a total of 40,000 ad impressions! This usually cost $25 so you’re saving over 60%! If you got $10 to spare and need more visits to your site/blog, take advantage of this offer today! Offer expires soon.”

I wrote back to tell them that I can’t agree with this. I’m closing my account. There are FAR too many entrecard ads that I find objectionable, and the novelty of EC was being able to control what you can and can’t approve of. So I’m taking the EC code off my sites right now. It’s not worth it anymore.

USPS Proposes No More Mail Delivery on Saturday | This Would Have Bugged Me 20 years ago…

Filed under: 3 — Tags: , — admin @ 5:05 pm

The news headlines today are talking about the US Post Office possibly ending service on Saturday, and you know, 20 years ago this might have bothered me, back before email, and back at a time when I still looked forward to letters, magazines and newsletters.  But thinking about it, that’s all nostalgia now, and really all USPS ever brings me these days are bills, catalogs of material I can’t afford anyhow, and the occasional media rate book.  Would I really care if Saturday was cut?  Nah, not really.

Back in high school, and even into college, I enjoyed corresponding with several different people via postal mail, and in a strange way there was something fascinating with the post, back in those pre-email days.  It seems odd to me, thinking back, that there was ever a time when I looked forward to getting mail.

But if USPS wants to cut Saturday service, then I really don’t care anymore.  The post office locally already closes early on Saturday (the ONE PERSON working the counter only works until noon then leaves, I guess) so that’s no big deal, and I really don’t care about the mail on the weekend anyhow.

Besides, I’ve noticed that I usually get bad news in the mail, like a massive medical bill or a cryptic note from the IRS, on Saturdays, oddly, to ruin the day with a notice that I can’t do anything about until Monday, so maybe eliminating service that day wouldn’t be all bad.
