Don't Hit Save The webcomic that dares to take on the gritty world of software, technology, and indie game development (by Jeff Lofvers). en-us Free Tool Fri, 12 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0700

I’m in the “honeymoon period” of my move.

When relocating, there’s always a few months where nothing is annoying and everything is fresh and new. I’m enjoying it as much as I can. Hawaii is… nice.

I just went Kayaking in the ocean, hit a planetarium, and snorkeled around a coral reef. There are worse ways to spend a week.

I know I’ve been kinda dumpy lately in the news, so I’ll say this: Nothing is perfect, but for the moment, I’m quite... [read more]

Well that was dark.

Apparently, I’m keenly aware of my age, my relationships, and the news this week.

Aside from that, things are going extremely well. I was able to catch up with missed work, get over an illness, and even acquire furniture for my new island lair.

Oh, and the place I’m living now? The new home that was a plane ride away?

Freakin’ Hawaii.


It's as good as you think.

I'm trying not to sneeze.

I've been coughing, sneezing, and oozing out of every pore for several days now. This isn't a hobby of mine, it's something I do when I get sick.

I'm already much better than I was, and I'm avoiding most fellow humans. Unfortunately, that wife of mine is stuck in the same home as me… and she doesn’t like my sneezing.

So, out of deference to her, I will try to hold it i--

Too late. Sneezed.

Anyway. ... [read more]

Don’t Hit Save is 3 years old!!!

I know that doesn’t sound like much. Yet while you've been living your life, having kids, and accomplishing things... I’ve been writing comics to entertain YOU. What a waste of everyone’s time!

So how are you celebrating the 3 yeariversary?

I spent this week officially moving into my new island lair. Yes, I’m on an island now.

Oh and on this island, I’ve decided to celebrate this year the same way I do... [read more]

Yes, I’ve been spending too much time in the offline world. We all know that's a problem. I am hoping this will come to an end in the next few weeks. (That’s a hope, not a firm timeline. I’m still dealing with moving weirdness.)

Neglecting readers is probably not the best way to build or keep an audience, but that’s never stopped me before. In fact, Twitter seems to like the comic more than ever now that I’ve gone a month without posting. Maybe I’m onto... [read more]

No desk, no desktop computer, no internet access, no home.

It’s been an interesting week.

Those conditions probably sound stressful. That’s because they are. I’ve had an extremely chaotic and dramatic summer. Too much crap going on in too little a time. Too many ups and downs to count. Almost too many to deal with.

It got to me.

Buuuuuuut, things are getting better. I'm starting an all new adventure.

By this time tomorrow, my wife and I... [read more]

Lots of life changes going on.

No news today. Life is in the way. Expect the same next week.

If and when you try moving out of your home, be sure to sort everything into boxes BEFORE you sell your furniture.

Bookcases, dressers, nightstands, and file cabinets hold more than you might think. And maneuvering around disorganized piles of crap takes more dexterity than you might be capable of.

All of this is hypothetical, of course. If I was moving, I surely would've mentioned it in the news sooner.

Or would I?

Asynchronous Fri, 10 Aug 2018 00:00:00 -0700

Short news today. Possibly next week as well.

If you missed Tuesday's announcement, I'll be going to a weekly schedule for the foreseeable future.

Everyone I've discussed this with seems to think it's okay for me to halve my posting schedule.... REALLY okay. Like, they've never seemed happier.

So, yay?

It's good to have such supportive readers.
