RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


September 2nd, 2010: Down beneath the comic, even below these very words, there's a section called "big ups and shouts out" where I link to the Dinosaur Comics distributed computing team. It's something you should join! BASICALLY, modern computers are awesome machines with tons of power that goes idle most of the time while we use them for writing emails or, um, reading comics. This software lets you use those idle cycles to do Actual Science: protein folding, running simulations working on cures for AIDS or cancer, and so on. It's free and runs in the background and lets you know that you're helping to cure diseases while you sleep, which is pretty awesome, I gotta say.

Anyway you should join! The Dinosaur Comics team is the 10th biggest team on the network, beating out teams for Ubuntu Linux and also THE ENTIRE NATION OF FRANCE. Hah! Too bad, France!!

To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!

December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe.
December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January.

One year ago today: T-REX YOU HAVE MADE OUT WITH PRETTY MUCH EVERY VISIBLE CHARACTER IN THIS COMIC; YOU'RE LUCKY THERE'S A FOURTH WALL BETWEEN US RIGHT NOW
