Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-01-23

  • @nowgamer_dan I'd like one of those STO Beta Keys, please! #
  • The CA government is irreparably broken. They're pushing through a law mandating 9 months in jail and $20K in fines for underinflated tires #
  • Said legislation is based on "science" that was made up by one of them who has a "degree" from a diploma mill. They know and don't care. #
  • This same person is also responsible for truck & bus owners being forced to replace their engines due to laws based on his fraudulent data #
  • I guess now they're going to require that cops check peoples' tire pressure when they're patrolling. As if their job wasn't hard enough. #
  • Chuck Norris is trending right now, so in the spirit of the trending topic: Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas. #
  • I got a Star Trek Online beta key from @NowGamer_Dan. Click here to find out how you can too. http://twurl.nl/ixh65a #
  • While my copy of Star Trek Online downloads, now I have a difficult decision to make… what will I name my ship? LOL #
  • @super_spock But will they acknowledge that Human Target is a DC book, or will they just ignore that he lives in the same world as Superman? in reply to super_spock #
  • Time for a shower. Then off to run a Monsterpocalypse tournament for @MrShimasaki, since he's out of town this weekend. #
  • @walshcaitlin I prefer to vote for those with the L next to their name in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • @walshcaitlin I've been a "big-L" Libertarian (ie registered w the party, not just philosophical) for about 12 years now in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • @walshcaitlin Led to some… shall we say, interesting, ah, "discussions" with my mother, who's an absolutely dyed-in-the-wool Democrat in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • @walshcaitlin Yeah. It's at the point where I rarely talk politics with my mom anymore. Just as well. Politics and family really don't mix in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • @walshcaitlin One-issue voting is always a mistake, esp if you disagree on other issues. Vote for whoever best represents you. in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • I am now Captain Dunsel of the USS John Rodgers on Star Trek Online. My username is jharlan1977 – friend me! lol http://myloc.me/2YW3z #
  • @wiggyndc Dude what's with the minute-by-minute updates of black photos? in reply to wiggyndc #
  • @super_spock Heeere's yer sign… in reply to super_spock #
  • OK, I've settled on a name for my comic. Since Union of Heroes was taken, and to avoid future conflicts, my comic is now The Protectorate #
  • The Protectorate logo. Many thanks to @blambot for the fonts! http://tweetphoto.com/9000040 #
  • Think I may have gotten Star Trek Online to run under WINE in Linux. Patching now, will try playing once that's done http://myloc.me/3072i #
  • D'oh! It got as far as the Cryptic and Atari logos with the Loading bar, then crashed. Guess I have to keep rebooting into Win7 to play #
  • @ArcticMandy Yep, listened to it within minutes of its release last night. Lots of STO goodness in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • @Tymethief So do I, but two tacos and a medium Dr Pepper broke the bank for me http://myloc.me/30pW0 in reply to Tymethief #
  • Good thing I came early. I spent 30 minutes circling the parking lot. I knew it'd be a zoo on the first day, but geez…. #
  • @gadgetdoll Yep. Already got a phone call from Elizabeth http://myloc.me/31Cbn in reply to gadgetdoll #
  • Finished page 5 of The Protectorate today, about 1/4 done with page 6. If I can keep up this pace, I should finish the comic in 2 wks #fb #
  • Is his name Johhny Depp? Then, no. RT @USATODAY: Brad Pitt and his often beaded beard. Can he pull it off? http://bit.ly/8YbDxf #
  • It's all about the Pentiums RT @alyankovic Glad @BillGates is finally on Twitter. It takes forever to get him on the phone for tech support #
  • Fox is adapting Torchwood for the US? Here's hoping they don't f*ck it up like when they did the Dr Who TV movie in 1996… #
  • Yay! Did a search of the US Patent & Trademark Office's database for "The Protectorate" and it is NOT currently registered #
  • Now I must leap upon the paperwork for that with great alacrity so that I may claim it before someone else does. #
  • Coming April 2010: The Protectorate #1! #
  • Spent an hour hunting for a parking spot before class. Another week or two, half these fools will have dropped & parking will be easy #fb #
  • RT @Mefran: New swag contest: Caprica 2GB USB key. To win, RT this message by 12 noon ET on 1/22. http://yfrog.com/4illpej #
  • The Protectorate page 6 is done. Starting page 7. I might be able to pull off two pages today… #
  • Wow. Already nearly done with the bluelines for page 7; one pose was giving me trouble, but it looks ok now #
  • W00t! RT @gimliaxewielder: Got my photo published on the online edition of The Orange County Register!! http://shar.es/aTvow #
  • @gimliaxewielder Link worked for me in reply to gimliaxewielder #
  • @super_spock are you saying that you have one, or that you want one? in reply to super_spock #
  • FYI, I've totally redone http://bandwidthcomics.com in preparation for the upcoming release of The Protectorate issue 1. #fb #
  • We're getting our 2010 quota in 1 week RT @dannymcguffin: I am just blown away the amount of rain we have had in the last 16 hours… #
  • There's a bucket outside my room in the back yard. It was empty on Sunday. It now has nearly a foot of water in it. #fb #
  • Ugh. It's gonna cost $500 each to register any trademarks #
  • @Entil_Zha actually, that's for copyrights and according to snopes it's a myth. I can use TM on my stuff but to get the (R) I have to pay up in reply to Entil_Zha #
  • @Entil_Zha Well, until I can afford it, I'll just be using the TM notation. I also will need $260 for the DBA paperwork in reply to Entil_Zha #
  • @Entil_Zha oh, and a PO Box for a business address would probably be helpful, too. Oh, so much to do… #
  • Everything I've read about self-publishing comics stresses you're more likely to lose money doing it. And yet, I still want to do it anyway #
  • I've dreamed of doing comics for 20 years now, and I've got to give it a shot. Who knows? Maybe I'll succeed #
  • I mean, hell, even Rob Liefeld has managed to make a living off comics. :p #
  • Lost track of time playing Star Trek Online… good thing I don't have class on Friday; I can sleep in. Kicked some Orion bootie though. #fb #
  • @Quarksbartender Agreed. That would be awesome, walk down the aisle and get jabbed with painstiks before getting your first set of orders in reply to Quarksbartender #
  • @spookannie I need to register the TM as soon as I can afford it. Fortunately, I'm a sole proprietorship so there's not as much paperwork in reply to spookannie #
  • RT @TalonNYC: @snipeyhead I think we can now use the expletive "UNICORN!" to replace "WTF" where "WTF" just doesn't cut it. #
  • RT @scifigeeks: Tonight is the season premiere of Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel! Who's going to be watching? #
  • RT @PaulRieckhoff: VA says 1/3 of GI Bill calls to the help hotline did not connect. http://tinyurl.com/yc3khva Yeah, we know. Unacceptable! #
  • That's just wrong. Just heard a radio commercial for "corrective surgery" so women can fit into shoes that are smaller than their feet. WTF? #
  • OK, so here's my plan: I'm going to try to keep drawing about a page a day. I should be able to do a monthly comic book that way. #
  • Once the first, 5-part arc is done, I'll release a trade as well; Ultimately, I'd like to try to get the story optioned by Hollywood #
  • There'll be some stuff on the web site not in the monthly issues that I'll adapt for the trade, as well as stuff exclusive to the monthlies #
  • I'm also considering digital-only sales (PDFs?) that would be a little cheaper than the printed comics #
  • Quick break for a chicken pot pie dinner, then back to work on The Protectorate page 8 now that I got some Star Trek Online outta my system #
  • Pencils for page 8 are finished. Will scan momentarily #
  • Page 8 is scanned and lettered. Now just needs inks and colors (just like pages 2-7 lol) #
  • At long last, my paycheck has hit my bank account. Thank God. Tomorrow: put gas in the truck and get the windshield wipers fixed. #
  • @super_spock You would if you could. Admit it. in reply to super_spock #
  • Watching the Caprica pilot in HD on Hulu. Surprised to find it there already. http://myloc.me/37M15 #
