Hello From Mach5

As I mentioned a while back, GORT was driving me up a wall, so I bought a new computer, which arrived today. It's a shiny red-and-chrome thing that looks a little bit like it should be on the hood of a muscle car, or possibly like it's one of Optimus Prime's shoulders, or both. However, as I'm just not a Transformers guy, I named it the next best thing I could think of, "Mach5."

It's a big, beefy machine, which is cool; unfortunately, it's also running Vista, which has had the unfortunate side-effect of killing my Wacom Tablet. Granted, the tablet is going on 10 years old now and I got it for free to begin with, so I guess I really don't have much room to complain, but I'm going to anyway. ;P

The net result of all of which is that I probably won't have comics in the upcoming week or two until a new tablet arrives, just because I couldn't bear to go back to trying to draw with a mouse. -.- If I get really desperate, I've still got GORT and I can put him on the dining room table to work on, but I'm only prepared to do that as a last resort.

I'm going to keep drawing in the meantime in any case, so hopefully if the strips do get stuck I can use the time to get ahead a bit (not to mention working on the books). But until then, I've got a long weekend of installing ahead of me.

Still, I can't wait to see LotRO on this thing. :)
