"too damn bad"

Wednesday - November 22, 2000

[Piro] - 00:00:00 - [link here]

I believe that Largo has received quite a few recommendations regarding 'how to keep piro from typing so much'. well, too bad. :P It's part of my nature. What bothers me is that everyone I know tells me 'there has got to be a way to shut you up' - including the people I work with.


Oh well. I suppose I could lop off these useless appendages called 'hands'- if I do that, i wont be able to type anymore. (yes, i've been browsing Japanese CG art sites again. The talent some of these guys have is so fricking amazing that it depresses me to no end.) Or I could stick my hands into a cuisinart, but I worry that might ruin the blades on my food processor.

As this week's sketch illustrates, I might just do the world a favor by 'pureeing' my hands to prevent artistic travesties like what i did to Tohno-chan.. I wasted more paper over the past few days, it's sad. I should be shot for wasting precious paper resources.

(sigh) well, i think there is only one thing that will get me out of this funk. Gonna go home and dig out my Hime-chan no Ribbon manga and sink into Himeko-induced bliss for a while. Everyone have a great holiday. Largo's going to be out of town for a few days, but I'll be around - I have a doujin deadline Saturday (oh my god... and i just realized I can't draw worth a crap right now... perhaps they will understand if do have a kitchen accident) and really - a few surprises planned for y'all.

have a good one, folks! Enjoy your holiday, and, er, keep your hands away from sharp knives and food processors, ok? :)

Well, I'm flying out of town to visit family and friends for the holiday this weekend, and so I before I split I thought I'd leave you with some of the suggestions I got on how to make Piro type less.

Suggestions Submitted:

"If he has no fingers he cannot type, therefore, his updates will be veryshort (typing with toes, or a tongue just doesn't cut it).....howeverwith no fingers he could also not draw, so that would put a slight crampin the comic, and his drawing. Hmmmmm, I'm gonna have to re-think that."- Ned Elwell

"Well since he draws the strip I'm goingto assume that hacking off his fingersetc.. is out of the question so howabout this - coat the tops of the keyson his keyboard with a conductive pasteand then connect all the keys to thepositive input voltage off the PS2 port,then connect the case of the keyboard tothe negative ground on that port.granted this requires that he has akeyboard that is mostly made up ofconductive componetns, or one that youcould make conductive. But shocktherapy is always good to keep people inline." - Adam Zilliax

"Take away his keyboard.Unplug is keyboard when he's not looking.Disconnect his monitor.format c: /qNew anime videos.Put HIS arm in a sling this time. ;-)Lock him in your trunk and forget he's there. :)" - Matthew LeClair

"Let's see. A number of devious plans come to mind but the one that sticksout is quite interesting. Have whatever editor he uses to write the rantshave a small sub program. After he reaches a predetermined number of wordsPiro will receive a "fatal exception error" and blades would shoot up fromthe keyboard loping off his fingers and or hands. Immediately there afterhis system will reboot into Linux with an incorrect monitor setting causingthe convergence set beyond the limits of the monitor. The phosphor guns willhit a single point in the monitor heating it greatly till the small amountof explosive set at that point go off sending a shower of sparks and glasswrite anymore and make it unable for him to use any "speak and type"programs." - Steve Lesiak
