This is the first cartoon (or anything else) that was scanned, colored, and uploaded from my new computer- which has a new scanner/printer and a new Wacom Intuos on it.

It’s taken all day… ALL  DAY… to get the thing up and running.  Thanks much to John Beckham of Memphis Computer Shop for all the hard work and good nature.  (Yes, Allan, you may certainly tell everyone that you are Hubris’ computer supplier.  You are.  But John’s my computer supplier.  You live too far for house calls.)

New systems make me nuts. I’ve done some work on my laptop and finally sort of gotten used to it.  Now I’ve got to do it all over again with this thing.  The Wacom tablet doesn’t feel like my old one, the screen looks different, the scanner is definitely different.  It’s a whole new world, and I’m just old enough to resent that.

On the other hand, I have a neat new computer.  So what the heck am I moaning about?

Now… how the heck do I get spellcheck turned off?  It’s making me nuts.  The last time I had to do this was, like, seven years ago.  I don’t remember how.
