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 Happiness Fri, 22 Jun 2018 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2018/06/22/happiness

Sometimes, it helps me to write gibberish as a warm up to the real writing.

Sometimes, gibberish is all that comes out.

I’ve been traveling a lot in the last two weeks, and I’m finding myself a little... off... today.

I spent 2 minutes trying to remember my Windows password. The same password I use every day, 2-3 times a day for nearly a year.

Travel is over for now, but I should probably catch up on sleep. I’ll tell you all about my... [read more]

Whoo hoo! I broke 100,000 karma points on reddit this past weekend. Rest assured, some of the finest commenters in the world were there to help me celebrate.

All the classic reddit comments were there, including these actual statements:

  • I really don't get why this is funny
  • Still has the lazy style of drawing one panel, and then copying... [read more]

    It’s comic mentioning time!

    Drop what you’re doing and go read the latest King of Slackers. There’s something magical about that particular strip. Seriously. You can leave my site for this. I don’t mind.

    When you’re done there, go read Molly Beans and its spinoff,... [read more]

      My tummy is upset this evening. I'm going to bed, there is no news aside from that.

      I suggest you use the time you saved from reading my news to do something nice for yourself.

      You're welcome.

      Well That's Just Great Fri, 01 Jun 2018 06:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2018/06/01/greatness

      I was so proud of myself tonight. I wrote the comic with time to spare. I typed up the news and started getting ready for bed. It was then that I decided that, instead of posting the news to the site, I would overwrite the text in my phone. This erased everything.

      Not ideal.

      The comic is safe and sound. But here’s attempt number two at writing Friday’s news, complete with extra grumpiness:

      Fancy Equipment Tue, 29 May 2018 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2018/05/29/fancy-equipment

      Every day, I have meetings via my webcam.

      Every day, the above situation plays out exactly. All my fancy equipment, everything I've bought over the last decade, all the money I've ever had and then some, and nothing seems to work as well as two cans and a piece of string.

      It wasn’t always this way. Just one month ago, every piece of hardware I owned worked flawlessly. Now, they’ve decided to all fail at once.

      Sigh… the important thing is that I... [read more]
