If you buy your copy today, youâ€™ll get to see me draw in your book (only $20 + shipping). If you buy an Artist Edition ($30 + shipping) , I will also stream a custom autographed PC Weenies drawing (that I create LIVE tonight!) that I will print on 8.5â€³ x 11â€³ 100 lb quality cardstock (suitable for framing) and send to you with your order.
Now, plugs aside, itâ€™s time for our main feature!

A retro look at the old Computer Chronicles TV show, and a rather young John C. Dvorak (aka the Cranky Geek) in the hotseat. They should have called this show â€œStuffy Geeksâ€ given the formality. It looks like Johnâ€™s having a blast taking apart the IBM PS/2.
Iâ€™ve used my share of PS/2 machines when I was a college student, and (putting it mildly) they were slow (even back then). I did, however, like the action on the keyboard.

I received a note from a long time reader who felt that he was enjoying the PC Weenies less as a multi-panel comic than when it was a single panel comic. It was sad to see him go, because invariably when a cartoonist loses a reader for good, it makes the artist question his own abilities.
While I enjoyed the heck out of my 8 year run as a single panel comic, itâ€™s something I donâ€™t want to revisit on a regular basis. Two years ago, at this time, I was getting incredibly burnt out with single panel comics. I had contemplated throwing in the towel.

60 more copies need to be sold before I sport a dapper mohawk. The deadline to order books is December 17th. Iâ€™m off to India on the 19th and the 18th is allotted for head shaving (provided readers come through with their end of the bargain, that is.)
Donâ€™t forget the special deal for the Virtual Book Signing event this Sunday at 7PM EST!

After months of frustration with my old Plantronics headset, I have purchased a new microphone, the Snoball Blue. Itâ€™s a solidly built device, but Iâ€™ve only had one chance to test it so far. The unit was very easy to assemble, and Iâ€™m looking forward to having more opportunities to use it. (Iâ€™d love to appear on more podcasts, *hint! hint!*)

The script for todayâ€™s strip came to me quite naturally. Itâ€™s like Bob and Apchukâ€™s conversation took place and I was merely recording itâ€¦

Iâ€™ll be having a virtual book signing event this Sunday evening starting at 7PM EST over at JustinTV. If you order an Artist Edition of â€œRebootus Maximusâ€ between now and Sunday, in addition to the signed, numbered book, you will also receive an 8.5â€³ x 11â€³ autographed print of a custom sketch featuring your favorite PC Weenies character. The print will be on 100lb cardstock and suitable for framing, stamped with an official PC Weenies mark so you know youâ€™re getting a unique piece of PC Weenies history. Artist Edition orders will also receive the PC Weenies / UNcubed Sampler #1 (first print), while supplies last (I believe Iâ€™m down to about 20 or so copies). Get them before theyâ€™re all gone!
