On the Spectrum #77 - On-a-man-a-pee-ya

(click to enlarge)






















This was not the comic I was planning to do this week, but we've finally had a few successes with Jacob actually USING the potty the past couple days, so it kind of jumped ahead in line.

On another note, this is the second strip I've done with the new Microsoft Paint and I HATE it. HATE HATE HATE it with a passion that only language unsuitable for a family-friendly blog can express.  I seriously have no idea what these programmers at Microsoft were thinking!  Let's make it really horrible?  Let's make it so NO ONE will enjoy using it?  Let's take everything that could be done simply in the OLD verision of Paint (and let's face it: simplicity was about all it had going for it, as it was) and make it complicated instead?!  It's intolerable.  So if I miss a post at some point in the next couple of weeks, it's possibly because I'm trying out new drawing software.  This version is bloody AWFUL.

Microsoft have a habit of doing that with things. I just discovered (with my new laptop which has windows 7) that documents now save in a different format .docx and nobody can open them unless they have this version also. Why fix something that wasn't broken??!! Good luck finding new software:) Jen.
