I have a bit of time to think about these things at work.

On the technical side of things, up until this point, I've been producing all the pictures in high resolution and assembling the comic itself in the web-resolution. This sped up production time, but now if I ever want to go back and put together either a print collection or get a print of the strips I'm going to have to rebuild them from the individual pictures in a higher resolution. Today's strip, however, was made in a hi-def resolution of 300dpi.

My question to you, my dear readers, is this: does today's comic look any worse or better when compared to any of the strips you've seen up to this point? The only major difference I've been able to spot is that the fonts all seem to look bolder, but that required some flipping back and forth between several examples, so it may not be apparent to the casual observer.

I know I'm rambling at this point, but as a final aside, I'd like to say that if you produce a web comic I strongly suggest you give the guys over at Blambot a once over. Their fonts are fantastic and they have a great usage policy for small-time artists. The font I've been using for speech lately is from them. I love it.

As you know, i haven't been able to be online much lately, and consequently am way behind on my comic reading. (On the plus side, i'll have some fine catch-up reading to do soon)

But not reading doesn't mean i don't vote when i get the chance, and just had to stop by to say how much i liked the new vote incentive.
You sick bastard, you.

Thank you sir, I'm kind of sad that I haven't had a chance to update the incentive in a few days. Very soon I'm hoping to take the vote incentives off into an actual loosely woven story. Essentially they'll be a comic-in-5-minutes SMBC kind of incentive. I'm hoping to use that to help improve my story-telling skills.

I work at a grocery store too, so its nice to see that I'm not the only one who has noticed this sad fact. So yeah.
Side note, regardless of peoples Careometer, I got accepted at the college I want to go to. Pretty damn excited about it.

Yeah, it is weird. I'd call it an obligation compression effect; they pay by the hour but the contents of the hour are left up in the air as a sort of blank cheque. Thus they can keep insisting on more from you, for exactly the same amount of money, yet act as if they are saintly and your bad if you don't do it. Without some sort of agreement on what is done per hour, they always come off looking as if they are the wise, beneficial employer. When they are just jerk arounds.
