Sorry folks, looks like I need a new hard drive… and just back from Ireland and off to Denmark straight away for a couple of weeks, for my Celebrated Lectures on Bovine Locomotion as Interpreted by the Animation Artist, It’s Attendant Joys and Sorrows. Should have the ol’ machine up and running by then though so this interruption shouldn’t go on too long! Life does interfere with comics so!

While I fiddle tiny screws and drop them under the sofa, please enjoy stunning super-duper hires images of the Magnificent Difference Engine, and some great video:

    Aww, that’s a bummer. I hope you can rescue your work from the old hard drive??!?

    I shall endeavor to wait patiently, consoling myself with repeat views of the previous episodes. :-)

    Aaaargh! Rogue apostrophe alert! (Just there, in front of “Attendant Joys and Sorrows”.) Blast it with the eraser gun before it breeds!

    I feel your pain. I just went through/am stuck in the Hard drive/powecord/laptop battery hyeck.

    I love your comics and can’t wait for Lovelace and Babbage (and George) to return. Rock those moving cows in Denmark.

    The xRez link recompenses us adequately and more while we wait for free ice cream.

    Happy Birthday Ada Lovelace

  10. Today’s Google Doodle (at least the one presented to U.S. users) celebrates the 197th birthday of Ada Lovelace!

    See http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/honouring-computings-1843-visionary.html

    Kevin Laughlin designed it. It shows Ada writing algebra, with a quill pen, on what I think is intended to be a long string of Jacquard cards. (That’s not how you punch Jacquard cards but, hey, artistic license.) The cards loop around to form the cursive word “Google.” Balloons touching the word contain a Hollerith punchcard reader, an electronic computer programmed by plugboard, a microcomputer CRT display, and a modern laptop and tablet issuing musical notes.
