Wacom pen tablet has died again. It is currently doing a remarkably
accurate impression of a flat black brick. There was no warning that
this was going to happen. It was working earlier this evening, but
about half an hour after I stopped using it, it disconnected itself
from my computer and went completely dead. I've tried alternate USB
cables. I've tried rebooting my computer (sometimes, the computer, not
the tablet, is the problem). I've tried it with a different computer,
though I can't use it with that one anyway because damn Photoshop has stopped working on that one. It's dead, Jim.|
While this isn't a problem right at this very moment, as Friday's comic is already finished, it is rapidly going to become a problem, as Monday's comic isn't. An added complication is that Friday is a statutory holiday, and though Sunday isn't and Monday is technically a holiday only for government employees, I have no idea what's going to be open on those days. I've contacted Wacom but don't expect to hear from them any time soon. If absolutely necessary, I can spend three times as much time as usual colouring Monday's comic without a tablet, which will be super annoying, but I am not going to do that in perpetuity. If Wacom doesn't get back to me (not that they're going to be able to do much), I may be forced to buy another tablet. It will be something like my sixth. I know some people who still have the tablets they bought fifteen years ago, but somehow, I can't get one that works for more than a couple of years at a time. I've probably spend enough money on smaller tablets that if I'd saved it all for the last decade, I would have been able to afford a Cintiq (one of the fancy ones) by now.
What this rant is basically saying is this: 1) Monday's comic exists, but 2) I have no idea whether it will be up on Monday, and 3) the same goes for subsequent comics, as 4) I apparently get to spend hundreds of dollars replacing a piece of technology I've owned for about a year. Yaaaaaaaay.

Iz is following Rose through Queen's Park.
Rose: Let's go see Maggie.
Iz: What? Why?
Rose: Who can know? These things are beyond the ken of mortals.
Iz: You need to explain about the--
Rose: I'm an elf.
Rose: You're an elf.
Iz: That's possible.
