Hello Readers,

Here's a new comic.

I think I should take the time to state for the record that I have read and enjoyed books by Michael Crichton, John Grisham, Tom Clancy, and Dan Brown.

Come back next week or else.


From Peter:

Hi everybody,

I wanted to talk to you today about something a little more serious than we usually do here. Next Sunday I'll be riding in the Hub on Wheels bike ride, the beneficiary of which is a charity called "Technology Goes Home." TGH is a program through the Boston Public Schools that provides underprivileged students and their families with computers, software, and training that they might not be able to get otherwise. Maybe fifteen years ago you could have gotten along in life without knowing how to use email, word processors, spreadsheets, and the like, but in the 21st century it's just not an option. These people help to make sure that even the poorest kids have access to a level playing field.

That being said, I would love it if any of you wanted to make a donation sponsoring me. We do a lot of work here at The World Wasn't Meant, so if you appreciate the things that we produce three times a week, a hope you would consider giving what you can. Think of it this way: today we posted our 85th comic. If you spent 30 seconds reading each one, that amounts to 42.5 minutes of your life spent staring at our stupid faces. That's roughly half the length of a typical movie, so if you feel like you've received more than half a movie ticket's worth of entertainment value, I would encourage you to give what you can. Anyway, here's the link to make a donation. Any little bit helps. And here you can find out more information about Technology Goes Home.
