Cardboard and Steel, Part 4

Page four of Cardboard and Steel is now available.  Only two more to go, I’ve passed the rest of the scripts on to Gabe so my involvement is pretty much over.  I didn’t actually know he was doing each of these pages in full color and then switching them to gray-scale, he tried other methods apparently but this produces the desired result.  He’s already well into the one for Wednesday, which means that barring a meteor strike you’ll have what you came for when you came for it.  Unless, of course, you came for the newspost - in which case, I abuse you regularly with late product.  That porn’s not going to watch itself, people.  You need to get an early start.

I would like to tell you all about the daring runs we made from the Cortez system in Freelancer last night, hulls pregnant with valuable Polymers and Engine Parts, but that would be something of an exaggeration - and here at Penny Arcade, we frown on hyperbole.  Just as things started to get interesting, the game just stopped working and kicked me to the wallpaper.  It’s a nice wallpaper, so I didn’t mind all that much.  It’s not Digital Anvil’s fault, either - the game actually works much as presented on the box!  If Motherboard Monitor is correct, there is a new sun is forming inside my case.

Believe me, I’m as surprised as anybody. 

And it’s not that I don’t like suns, I just like them a bit farther away is all.  God only knows why it was an average of ten degrees hotter in that case than it was the day before, but clearly I need some kind of valuable goo or piece of modern art in there to offset the Goddamn star.  My e-mail is still pretty screwed up from my move, as anyone who has tried to mail me is no doubt aware - but dammit if I couldn’t use some advice at this point.  Actually, shit - it’s out of character, far out of character in fact, but I’m going to start a forum thread about it, and if you know what the hell I need to do about cooling this thing I’m all ears.  I’ll put all my hardware in the post over there.  Is it a problem that I’ve stuffed every modern piece of equipment into a mini case from 98?  Please write back!   

There is a con at the end of this month in Kansas City, and I think we will probably go to it.  We started to feel bad that all the things we go to are in the extreme west of the country, and so we have a two-step plan to balance that out.  For one, like I said, this Kansas Con should get us much farther out than is typical.  Gabe knows the site of that con, on the 29th or something, I’ll just let him handle it.  Also, in addition to the annual Necrowombicon - taking place this summer in Vancouver, BC - there will also be a Necrowombicon Dallas that should get us somewhere else we haven’t been.  People have come so far to see us at the events we’ve held, it is high time we returned the favor.
