Dateline early April 2011:
Oh man! Previously this entry was postdated out to April 22, 2011, because seriously like WOW that is so far in the future surely it will stay at the top of the page forever. What is with the passage of time. (Now I'm totally going to leave basically all of the rest of the post alone since what I really needed to do was move the date. Will I seriously still be using LJ in 22 years? You'd think we'd have the Internets in our brainpans by then.)
Free userpics here. Credit anyone who I note the art as belonging to.
Four Panels is, uh, kind of officially dead. It's been a bit long to call it just a hiatus, and now I has other things to do.
One of those things to do is the Zombie Rights Campaign, where we fight for the equal rights of all persons, living, dead, or at any state in between. One of the things we're most excited about there is The Lurch For The Cure -- head on over and check it out. Right now we're selling t-shirts, and all proceeds from each shirt go to the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation. These folks pay other folks to fight breast cancer so you don't have to. That is good stuff to do.
As of July 2008, I am working at Epic Systems Corporation, outside of Madison, Wisconsin, as a software dev; and I still say I've totally found the Nerd Mothership. It's like being raised by wolves, and then finally being rescued by your tribe, who on the way back to the village proceed to talk about how this is totally like that one episode of Star Trek. Then they ask you if you have your towel.
We gave up on fixing my old computer, and now I have a monster of a laptop and wilsonator's drive in an external drive housing dealie. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite named Osterman. Naming a Satellite "Osterman" is a two-layered reference that you probably have to be me to get. Hint: one half is musical, one half is a major motion picture. But anyway! I now have access to all my old files and things! This is good, even if I do have to put up with Vista on Osterman. But I guess it's worth it, since now I can come home from my job programming healthcare software and spend my evenings programming hacked objects for The Sims (that would be The Sims I). I fully intend to get a working set of bunkbeds in the game eventually!
There, that should take care of the twice-yearly-if-you're-lucky top-of-the-page update. Dash dash dash. Dot!
