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 Project Management Fri, 22 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/09/22/project-management

Patreon!

Oh yeah, I’m bringing it up again.

If you’ve missed my blurbs on social media, and skipped everything I wrote on Tuesday, I am now running a Patreon campaign to grow this project.

If you like this comic (and you know you do), please consider throwing a few bucks my way. This is totally optional, but it will go a long way towards adding more content. ... [read more]

Ahem... Patreon Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/09/19/patreon

Hey, look at that! Don't Hit Save turned two yesterday. Where did my life just go?

I'm not sure if you figured out my subtle message in today's comic, but Don't Hit Save has (finally) launched its own Patreon campaign. Patreon, for those who are unfamiliar, is a way for creative artists and people like me to get paid for projects we're already producing. I'll go into more detail on Friday, but this seemed like a decent way for... [read more]

Website Client Fri, 15 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/09/15/website-client

I have a messy desk.

It’s only been a few days since I last cleaned, but the clutter has built up beyond my monitors and into eye level. The usual stuff is all there, layered and compacted into a fortress of papers. To the untrained eye, it may look like any other mess. But this is the rare and elusive “marathon mess.”

Loading the desk with papers, pens, books, toys, and hardware is not shocking for me. I’m not a filthy person, but my desk is no stranger to... [read more]

Patch Tuesday Tue, 12 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/09/12/patch-tuesday

Apologies for the late in the day comic. Patch Tuesday struck again.

My wife’s laptop was kind enough to automatically update today. Like any good update, this one completely disabled Windows. Yay.

I love it when the tools we buy to enhance our lives decide, on their own, when and if they should be used.

If... [read more]

Equifax Fri, 08 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/09/08/equifax

I didn’t want to do another news-related comic. But Equifax, one of the country’s top 3 credit agencies, went and had a major data whoopsie. Don’t worry, though, it impacts 143 million people. So if you live in the U.S. like me, you finally have something pleasant to talk... [read more]

Apple vs. Qualcomm Tue, 05 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/09/05/apple-vs-qualcomm

The Apple/Qualcomm battle has been going on for a few months now. It’s tricky to summarize in 4 panels. Feel free to read more here.

In non-Apple news, you probably noticed something about flooding in my last (non) news post. I had typed up a very very very very long summary of my weekend, to be posted today. Sadly, my stream of consciousness writing needed a great deal... [read more]

crazy flooding + intermittent power = no news today

Streaming Content Tue, 29 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/08/29/streaming-content

I so wanted to enjoy The Tick.

The first half of season one has been available on Amazon since Friday. The reviews are mostly great, my friends all seem to love it, and the internet wants to make out with it.

Sadly, I’ve watched it all, and I am not a fan.

I’ve been following the Tick since the 90s. I’ve read the comics, I watched the cartoon, and I watched the 2001 live action show.... [read more]

Team Player Fri, 25 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/08/25/team-player

Today’s comic happened twice this week. Twice.

Two different employees simultaneously completed the same work as me. Guess who checked in their work last. Did you guess me? It was me.

Anyway, that’s been my work recap. How are things with you?

Seriously, how’s it going?

Feel free to speak up any time. Aaaaaany time.

Nothing?

Really?

I’m just going to have to sit here, typing in silence? Pretty... [read more]

Tip Jar Tue, 22 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/08/22/tip-jar

I’ve been dreading this week for years.

Oh sure, you probably heard about the eclipse. Crisscrossing the US, total darkness, first eclipse to be viewable in the US since the 70’s. Blah blah blah. You know who else heard of it?

My parents.

Back when I lived in Portland, OR, they reserved a space on my air mattress. This was 3 or 4 years ago. Portland, you see, was just north of the path of totality. They wanted to see a total solar eclipse.

Freaked... [read more]
