This is from Tezuka Osamu's アイエル (also known as "I.L").

A wondrous masterwork.

Highly recommended!

Here's a little composition I wrote and called Jōmon

Glad to see that the Goethe Institute India included , my ancient webcomic from , in their collection of so-called Graphic Travelogues.

The website’s a fun assembly of (mostly German-speaking) artists and their autobiographical travel from all over the world.

An offer to my -concerned bubble:

If you’re a bit freaked out about ’s content scanning plans and feel like it would be interesting to test the waters with alternative OSes, I could help you set up Linux-based .

Admittedly, I’m not very techy and can’t guarantee that we’ll get there, but I have flashed a few devices and all ended up running the Finnish OS without problems.

DM me if you’re interested.

In the mid-nineties I went to a signing at my local comics store.

I brought my first paperback from home because I couldn't afford to buy anything from that signing, and stood in line with my best friend and fellow nerd.

And I remember being awfully proud that Neil, after taking a quick look at us, advised my friend to “Dream a little,” whereas he signed my comic with an encouraging “Dream On”.

Speaking of , I've now re-read the whole series ahead of the coming Netflix adaptation and will share a few random thoughts and impressions in the coming weeks.

It aged surprisingly well, all in all, and holds its ground as a comics classic.

The latest version of the thoughtful, capable, and ethical replacement for Windows and macOS is here. elementary OS 6 empowers you to be in control and express yourself, continues to innovate with new features, and is both easier to get and more inclusive.

2021 – just helped a kid set up their brandnew , and boy, what a nightmare!

If you don't uncheck a box unmentioned during setup and hidden deep down in layers of preferences, the PS5 is always listening and remotely analyzing everything that is said to “improve its services”.

And to ensure this, yellow LEDs in your controller alarm you when the built-in microphone is _muted_, which was very counter-intuitive for the kid.

Yikes! Peak

re: Guilty/Onions (Img text) 

Q: What's the kindest thing a stranger has done or said to you?

A: Oh God! I can't even tell this story and not cry.
I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when bookstores were still a thing. One night, a caller says he thinks he might be gay and is considering self-harm. We were not a crisis center!
But as long as we're talking, he's safe, right?

So I talk to this guy and I answer questions, and I try to be encouraging and I'm maybe sounding a little frantic and I'm definitely ignoring the 4--5 customers in the store, and this angel of a woman puts her hand on my shoulder and asks for the phone.
"My turn, she says".

And SHE, this 50-something lesbian talks to this stranger on the phone. And a LINE FORMS BEHIND HER. Every csutomer in the store knows that call, knows that feeling, and eveyr person takes a turn talking to that man.
That story comforts me so much to this day.
