Dumb dsl again!!

Instance listeners waiting for a stream, know that I am working hard to fix the latest DSL outage at my house. My timing is reducilous lately. Might have to find a new provider. I will keep trying so hang in there. (posted from my iPhone)


UPDATE: Still dead even after swaping out for a new modem. Thinks it’s something with some underground fiber now. Not very hopeful. 🙁

UPDATE 2: Turns out anyone in my whole area that has DSL is down. I am just the only real power user. Everyone else thought the wind did it, or they don’t hardly use it…whatever. Called them back, told them they had a huge overall outage, we will see what they do.

Bonus comic: Stack Overflow

You might have seen the rejected version the other day. This is the one they went with. I do this comic for these guys once a month, and it’s lots of fun to work on a tech centered comic once in a while.

EDIT: Some others that were posted over time.

Cheech and Chong to reunite.

Their feud finally having gone up in smoke, Cheech and Chong say they’re eager to get back on the road for their first comedy tour in more than 25 years.

“We had such a legacy, such a history. We couldn’t escape it, even if we tried,” Tommy Chong told reporters at a news conference Wednesday at the Troubadour, the Los Angeles nightclub where the pair were discovered more than 35 years ago.

The duo said their “Light Up America” tour will kick off Sept. 12 in Philadelphia.

“It’s going to be very theatrical,” said Cheech Marin.

I guess this is good.

CONTEST: Where can you show your EL pride?

Another contest? Heck yes! Here’s the deal. You can choose any single print of a comic in the archives (12×18 inch signed by me), or any print in the print store that is 12×18 or less in size, again signed…all free, IF you win!

Here is the contest. I want to see the most creative example of ExtraLife in the wild. If you can get a famous person to hold up an sign with ExtraLife on it, or wear your EL shirt in some crazy place somewhere, or print a comic and stick it somewhere funny, famous, etc.

There will be three winners chosen, each to get a free print of their own. You have to take a picture of whatever it is you do and send it to myextralife at gmail dot com. And if I think I see photoshopping going on, yer out of the running! Also, you can enter as many as you want.

Deadline is August 13th, 2008…couple weeks from now. Be creative, don’t break any laws, and get me your entries. This could be fun. (Gotta thanks Stephen at Majorspoilers for inspiring the idea in the first place.)

EDIT: Does NOT have to be with someone famous…just something creative is the goal here.
