"Doomed to Obscurity" - New Web Comic Launched

Filed under
Humor

For a New Year's Day surprise, I'm finally launching the webcomic I've always wanted to do. It's called Doomed to Obscurity and if you give it time, it'll grow on you. Strip #1 is up today; subsequent strips will be published every odd-numbered calendar day.

This is all in Inkscape, and with characters, props, and templates already saved in SVG, reusing parts of drawings becomes trivial. There's still a few details that might change over time, but then that's half the fun of a comic is watching it evolve! I've agonized the most over what graphics platform to use, but Inkscape has consistently given me the best results in what I think a comic should look like, while keeping the characters easy to pose.

Lets hope like wine, it gets better with time.

re: new comic

well, it works in konqueror. Ole pete's having some issues, but he thinks he's fixed 'em. However, they still ain't showing up in Firefox.

Weird. I usually have to crank FF up when Konqueror gasps and chokes.

Mining cryptocurrency with Raspberry Pi and Storj

I'm always looking for ways to map hot technologies to fun, educational classroom use. One of the most interesting, and potentially disruptive, technologies over the past few years is cryptocurrencies. In the early days, one could profitably mine some of the most popular cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, using a home PC. But as cryptocurrency mining has become more popular, thanks in part to dedicated mining hardware, the algorithms governing it have boosted computational complexity, making home PC mining often impractical, unprofitable, and environmentally unwise.

  • This open-source, multicloud serverless framework claims faster-than-bare-metal speed
    The move toward fast, serverless computing technology got a boost this month from Iguazio Systems Ltd. The data platform company (named from the Iguazu waterfalls in South America) announced the release of Nuclio, an open-source, multicloud serverless framework that claims faster-than-bare-metal speed. “We provide one platform, all the data services that Amazon has, or at least the ones that are interesting, serverless functions, which are 100 times faster, and a few more tricks that they don’t have,” said Yaron Haviv (pictured), founder and chief technology officer of Iguazio Systems. “We do fewer services, but each one kicks ass; each one is much faster and better engineered.”
  • CORD Says It’s the De Facto Choice for Edge Computing
    The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) today released 4.1 of its Central Office Re-architected as a Data Center (CORD) code. CORD has only been around as an independent project within ONF for about a year and a half, but with this release a couple of things have gelled for the project. First, it has merged its residential-CORD, mobile-CORD, and enterprise-CORD into one overarching project. Secondly, the ONF has realized CORD’s relevance in edge computing and edge cloud data centers.
