darn it, i don't know WHY i keep attending this 'second-rate book fair'. no matter how you parse it, it's always second-rate!
The haps: I've been intending to link to this article for a while! It's a story with some good coverage of webcomics and interviews with myself, Nick of The Perry Bible Fellowship, Dorothy of Cat and Girl, and Joey of A Softer World. Nice! I hope you like it.
So the last comic about steganography did indeed have a hidden message in it. The comic was larger than usual and in a different format, but that's because I was describing a way to hide information in JPG files, and so felt like I had to use a JPG file. I made the compression on it really low so that it wouldn't look ugly on the site. I got a bunch of emails from people who figured it out, and am sending the fellow who emailed me first with the solution a free t-shirt. It was a "contest" that I "didn't announce". Congratulations, Jeff!
FINALLY but most impressively, I wanted to point you to this news story from Howard County, where two teens wrote a perfect SAT. Ultra mega props go out to one of the teens, Russell, who in the video that goes along with the story, not only got the cameraperson to shoot a close up of his Professor Science t-shirt, but ALSO got a shot of Dinosaur Comics included too. Russell I don't know how you did it, but that made me very happy! Thank you. I will refer to you as "Russell, the coolest guy at Reservoir High School" to anyone who asks. I am already doing it mentally. Russell, the coolest guy at Reservoir High School, I hope you enjoy your education! Congratulations on the perfect SAT!
