Ooo, I missed some of your updates. Very nice job there, grats.
My brother just got accepted for an internship at the company that makes Liseterine... so now we can buy all their OTC products at 10% the prices.

And love the funny nonsense the comic just jumps into... Is Stan real?

I had a rough day so had to read it twice to understand where you were going exactly with 'stan' but it is a great idea.

Hi there, been reading your fine work for awhile now and decided I'd finally register... if only to point out what no one else has... [removed by mod] :shock:

[edit by mod], no actually, you know what? I'm going to remove that. Not because it offended me or anything, but because now that is ALL THAT I CAN LOOK AT in the damn comic and I don't want others to be ruined in the same way.

Well gee, guy, thanks. It is indeed the frills of the skirt that did that, but that is the problem with working analog and not digitally. I only have one shot at most of these lines. But yeah, I guess the big secret is out. I HAVE A VAGINA.

I never noticed that. And now it's hard to miss.

:( I'm terribly sorry if I've offended or ruined the comic or just generally lowered the tone... I just happened to think it was funny :)

Sowwy.... I'll just retreat to the dark lurk corner from whence I came :oops:

So... you are going to use Stan as a mouthpiece for your coworkers/boss, and you're going to criticize them through the comic?

Have fun getting fired.

Where did you see her saying that? Seriously, I want to know because up to this point all of the comics that have been work related are just cute little anecdotes, but with things as they are now, people dont like themselves to be shown online, thus the need for stan.

Stan is a everyman so that when Jam wants to do a comic about an amusing event at work, its not a specific person getting pointed out. Shes never criticized a boss or coworker before (only the code books), so I don't really see her doing that now with a job she genuinely likes.

Also, seriously folks, were you looking THAT closely to notice the since edited feature? Really? I had to really look in there and even then it looks like a stray line, which is common when you ink by hand. Its all very depressing, really.

tl;dr: think before you post.

Richek: The introduction to "Stan" said it all. If she really enjoys this new job and does not want to lose it then it would be best if she did not discuss it at all; no matter how humorous the event was for her to talk in LOLCat vocabulary. How can you not think this has a high chance of affecting her negatively in the future? Like it or not, companies and businesses make it a regular task to look at their employees' online life to see how they portray themselves.

No, I'm sorry. I could have chosen my words better, I'm rather cranky before breakfast. =_=

To everyone else: I'm very VERY aware of the risks of what I'm doing, but thank you for your additional warnings (criticisms?). I have given the nature of this comic as it relates to my work a great deal of thought. A great, GREAT deal of thought. It's because I take my work as an engineer so seriously that I feel I can't be as candid about my life as, say, "DAR" or "American Elf".

But by that same token, making this journal comic has been a very positive thing in my life, and in the lives of others. I don't want to quit unless someone makes me some kind of ultimatum. I *could* completely cut out work-related humour, but work IS my life now, and I feel that removing that part of the comic would not be fair to the readership of technical-minded people that I've begun to attract. Also, cutting out 90% of my week would make for a seriously boring-ass comic.

I'm not intending to use Stan as some kind of mask through which I can criticize the "regime", so to speak. Richek is right, I intend to continue with my stupid anecdotes that just happen to be in a work setting now. Stan is just an extra layer of security that I'm using while my co-wokers get used to having a comicker in their midst. This way they can safely get a feel for my sense of humour and I can get a feel for how comfortable they are about it.

tl;dr - if I get fired, it's my fault anyway and what the hell do you care?

Hello there mew ^_^, I've been reading your comic for quite some time (The cute couples one really got me hooked since my g/f and I act just like that) and since I saw all these people getting in on this hot commenting action I figured I'd create an account and just tell you how awesome you are and how I love to read your comics. Woot!

Thanks Daemion!

Radikal, yeah you're right I think I got my expression wrong in that panel. Feeling like I'm making a difference just makes me feel powerful, I think that's what's responsible. ^_^

Oh dear God, that's hilarious. Especially the final "I'm dead inside" edit. Gold.

Also, I just can't see whatever it was that ruined the comic, supposedly. Am I missing something? That said, you should create Generic Carbon Units for other, miscellaneous background workers. Or something. It's late.

I never really understood the "We spy on our employees and fire them because they're living their lives outside the office and online in a way we do not find appropriate" thing. I mean, they're basically dictating how their employees live, isn't that illegal? I guess it makes sense if the person is dumb enough to post REAL names of fellow co-workers and such, but a lot of them use fake names so I don't see how companies have been getting away with this. I haven't kept up with it yet, but has anyone tried to sue yet? Maybe the companies are allowed to fire employees for whatever reason they see fit, but it just doesn't sit right with me.

Also I guess I came in late enough to miss the whole "stray line" thing and I'm greatful for that.

That's a good point, Tenchi! Red made a thread about it in general to further discuss it http://www.wastedtalent.ca/node/895

I actually noticed it subconsciously at first, but then I'm like, "Hey, wait a minute..." and looked back at the older comics, and it seems to me that Angela's nose is somewhat more noticeable. The last comic was completely devoid of noses, and...yeah. :P I liked the comic, though! I hope you do well at your new job!

You remind me of me. Or actually you're probably definitely older than me, so I guess I remind me of you.

I'm also going to do engineering, it's "Sustainable and renewable energy".

I hope you do well at your job!

QC recruit here, just went through your archive! Awesomeness is everywhere.

Is it just me, or does it look like Jam has a splat of ice cream on her head in the last panel? :P

It's sad she had to do that, but with good reason.

See: Dooce.

Thus. Good reason, yes.

Hubby actually understands some of the stuff you say. Me? I get the WoW jokes. I am so lame.
