Don't Hit Save http://donthitsave.com The webcomic that dares to take on the gritty world of software, technology, and indie game development (by Jeff Lofvers). en-us Bills Fri, 21 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/07/21/bills

Hey Instagram fans, guess whose comic is now available on yet another social media platform. Do it! Guess!

Give up?

It's MY comic: Don't Hit Save. It's on Instagram now.

Duh. I can't believe you couldn't figure that out. Sometimes I worry about you.

I have very few followers, and even fewer posts, so now is certainly your chance to get in on the ground floor. What... [read more]

Heartbeats Tue, 18 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/07/18/heartbeats

In light of today's comic, I thought I'd give you something to click on...

It's been a while since I last gave you a new webcomic to check out, so today is the day I bring up The DaneMen.

I've seen this comic on Reddit quite often, and it's freakin' weird. If you appreciate odd, non sequitur, humor that doesn't involve reading a single word... [read more]

Complexity Fri, 14 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/07/14/complexity

I broke my soda-free streak earlier this week. It’s been since late March that I last had one any sort of acidic liquid candy bar.

I didn’t really want one. But I was in a restaurant, surrounded by my peers, and they were pressuring me. I cried a little, but it was worth it for the coolness factor.

Actually, I made a quick 48-hour trip down to Central FL to visit relatives. While there, I stopped at... [read more]

Video Chats With The Parents Tue, 11 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/07/11/video-chats-with-the-parents

I made today's comic while sitting in the passengers seat of a car. This is the 5th or 6th time this has happened... I'm clearly a stellar planner.

In case you ever find yourself in a similar situation, allow me to give you some free advice: It turns out that it's NOT a great idea to eat a huge, spicey meal before reading, writing, and adjusting comics in the car. Even those with relatively strong stomachs maaaaaaaay start to feel nauseous by the time they finish writing the... [read more]

Intelligence Fri, 07 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/07/07/intelligence

Today I discovered I had four rare and magical hours all to myself. My wife was out, the comic was done, and the day job had just ended. I had few responsibilities that were pressing, and none that could be accomplished in a mere four hours.

So what did I do with this precious time?

Did I go to that restaurant my wife never lets me visit? Did I play one of the dozen games I purchased during the recent steam sale? Did I put effort into some inane comic-related... [read more]

The Problem Solver Tue, 04 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/07/04/the-problem-solver

The greatest compliment I ever received from a member management was that they thought of me as a problem solver. You’d think it would be something about my nice shoes, my fancy hair, or my crooked smile… but nope, it was that problem thing.

In retrospect, my boss may not have used the word “solver”, but that’s how I choose to remember it.

Late Night Conference Calls Fri, 30 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/06/30/late-night-conference-calls

“Yes sand.”

That's what they're teaching me in my improv course. I'm only three classes in, but the instructor insists that we say “yes sand” to any situation. I'm sure I'll eventually find out why sand is supposed to be important. So far, I've only learned how to be a good listener.

Did I mention I started taking improv comedy classes? No? Well, if I seem any wackier/sillier/zanier/punnier than usual lately, it's because I'm two and a half... [read more]

Job Security Tue, 27 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/06/27/job-security

My day started off with a bang.

I woke up around 6:30, let the dogs out, then heard a loud crunching noise. I immediately looked in the backyard to see what the dogs had knocked over, but couldn't find anything. No broken gutter, no smashed windows, and the dogs didn't look nearly guilty enough. I gave up my search and headed back into the house. As I neared the door, I saw what it was:

A car had driven into the ditch across the street.

I wasn't two minutes... [read more]

Steam Sale Fri, 23 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/06/23/steam-sale

Today’s comic is dedicated to a friend/coworker who CONVENIENTLY sprained an ankle and couldn’t come into the office this morning. We all believe you, and hope you “get well soon”.

The Steam Summer Sale, for those who are unfamiliar, is one of the largest PC Game sales of the year. This is not an advertisement, just one of the many consumer crazes that I get excited about. Thousands of games from thousands of developers can be... [read more]

Amazon's New Patent Tue, 20 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/06/20/the-amazon-patent

I have to thank my wife for telling me the news about Amazon's new patent. At first, I didn't believe her (the key to a happy marriage is denying anything your spouse tells you). Sadly, though, she was right. AGAIN.

So the great mystery of this news is: has Amazon patented this technology to use it themselves, or to stop others from using it? I'll give you one guess as to which one I... [read more]
