Turns out, the place from which I normally order custom stickers has started offering holofoil material. That's quite neat and all, the only problem is the minimum order for those is 25 stickers, and I've only now run out of a stock of 10 nasal fly stickers I made a couple years ago.

Well, that was one of the smoothest Ubuntu upgrades I've done. Probably largely due to me using the wipe-and-reinstall method (besides the home partition), but still, works nicely.

Y'know what? I'll say it: I'm proud that I just drew a comic that contains a very glaring reference that only very few friends and myself will recognize, and said recognition isn't even remotely required to understand the comic as a whole.

I have suddenly come to the realization that I have run out of 9"x12" sketchbooks (yes, of the good ol' Strathmore yellow variety). Sure hope Dick Blick's shipping isn't badly affected...

I would normally complain that my printer's color toner cartridges are running low, but checking my order history, they've lasted around seven and a half years, so that's pretty good.

Oi! The various 'buntus won't have a direct upgrade path from 18.04 to 20.04 until around late July or so? Weird.

Maybe I should do a full wipe and reinstall. It's been quite a while.

For whatever reason, I googled "lyrics jump around house of pain". In addition to lyrics, one of the suggestions was "what is that sound in jump around?".

And I thought to myself, y'know, I never really considered it, but with just that much context, I know exactly what that's asking, and I've never had any clue what the answer is. Shame nobody else knows, either.

And for my next trick, I learn Kotlin on-the-fly as I code up a new Android project...

Mastodon 3.1.3 installed. I think I'm getting the hang of the upgrade process.

Richter absolutely did a stint with Dodo Airlines.

Hm. I just had ideas for a couple more DoM-related vinyl stickers. Soon my laptop will be nothing but my own custom DoM stickers, and then I'll no doubt get a new laptop and have to start over.

There are some things I still have yet to get used to out here, such as the fact that the local super-mega-ultra grocery store seems to stock only one variety of non-microwave popcorn, and they don't stock it all that well to begin with.

Like, seriously, I recall there being actual options at Meijer, at least. Does nobody know how to make popcorn without a microwave out here?

Welp, guess it's a good time to check if the grocery store's home delivery service (which is still operating) is any good...

I am slightly disturbed by the fact that, when dusting, most of the dust in my apartment has a distinct smell of dryer sheets, and now I'm starting to wonder if I've been seriously screwing up my laundry for a long time now.

Okay, I think I know where the immediate next DoM strips will go. I know how the chapter needs to end, per se, in terms of the events that need to happen, but specifically getting there has been the trick. More to follow. Eventually.

In today's test sketch, the tricks I've been missing with this pose have always been the shoulders and the fact that the wrist should sit BELOW the level where the hand is.

Well, that and the fact that my style doesn't usually give distinct hips on which a hand can sit, per se.

Y'know how I mentioned I should rethink the CSS and layout of the DoM site? I should also consider a more mobile-friendly site. The problem there is that the comic images aren't particularly mobile-friendly, and that's pretty well the entire point of the site...

I mean, the RSS feed exists for a reason, so maybe just directing people to their feed readers is a better solution?

Another Mastodon software upgrade, preferably non-breaking again. Yay!
