Don't Hit Save http://donthitsave.com The webcomic that dares to take on the gritty world of software, technology, and indie game development (by Jeff Lofvers). en-us Patreon Service Fee Fri, 08 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/12/08/patreon-service-fee

The Jeff draws a random reader’s face contest generated quite a response. No more submissions will be accepted as of…. NOW!

Thank you to everyone who entered. I will admit, I was a bit surprised by the response. More of you read this news than I thought.

No winner has been selected as of yet. I need to devise a grand way to choose one of you, but I’d like to get it out of the way soon (I hate drawing). Check your email every 30 seconds over the... [read more]

Cracked Tue, 05 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/12/05/cracked

Bummer.

I woke up today to discover that cracked.com, one of my favorite humor websites, has removed nearly all of its best people. Combine that with It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia leaving Netflix, and it’s a dark week for... [read more]

Meeting Moving Fri, 01 Dec 2017 08:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/12/01/meeting-moving

Look, it’s been an extremely long week. Right now, the only thing standing between me and relaxing for the night is this news post.

So, rather than neglect you entirely, I have a deal for you:

I will choose one reader at random and draw their head in Don’t Hit Save style.

If you’re interested, write to me and say so. I’ll be picking a winner in one week, and drawing that... [read more]

I type at about 65 words per minute-- without looking at the keys!

Holiday Week Fri, 24 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/11/24/holiday-week

Don't give me that look.

I'm not the one who ruined your holiday week. You're thinking of the FCC and Google. I merely made a comic about it.

So aside from that,... [read more]

Thanks Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/11/21/thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, I know it’s two days away. No, I don’t feel like writing a longer news post.

(I have a lot of prep work to do if we expect to feast on the traditional goblin meat)

EA's Star Wars: Battlefront II Fri, 17 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/11/17/star-wars-battlefront-ii

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm a few years back, I was cautiously optimistic about the future of Star Wars. The franchise desperately needed someone to breathe new life into old concepts, and they have accomplished this with some degree of success.

One thing that struck me as weird, though, was the decision to grant Electronic Arts (EA) exclusive rights to produce Star Wars video games. I seem to recall EA having a reputation of overcharging and underdelivering.

Oh well.... [read more]

Overwhelmed Tue, 14 Nov 2017 08:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/11/14/overwhelmed

Yay. Dentist time.

I'm waiting to get my teeth brushed. Good clean fun.

I'm not a tremendous fan of having strangers stick their hands in my mouth. At least the people today have an excuse. Let’s hope it’s worth it for all parties.

I’ve been sitting in the chair by myself for a few minutes. They did some x-rays, and now I'm waiting patiently (get it?) for the hygienist to come back and clean my teeth. While I wait, I'm filling time by writing... [read more]

Apple's Big Win Fri, 10 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0700 http://donthitsave.com/comic/2017/11/10/apples-big-win

Hooray for Apple. After many years of battling in court, they’ve definitively won $119.6 million from Samsung for "swipe to unlock" and "quick links". The case had flipped and flopped for years between each side, until the supreme court decided this week not to hear Samsung's appeal.

It's a common tactic in the tech industry to make barge-loads of... [read more]
