Welcome to the first iteration of “Gruntled and Illusioned” – part webcomic + part anecdotes = full time nerd humor. Today’s story:
A secretary had just completed a memo and was having problems saving it. “Do you have enough space?” asked the local computer expert.
“Oh sure,” she replied. “I’ve got a message that says ‘Disk space OK.'”
The computer expert looked over her shoulder, and sure enough there was the message:
Then he deleted some files and the message read “Disk space: 4K.” After a few more deletions the message read “Disk space: 32K,” and she was able to save her memo.
Lately I have been interested in the nuts and bolts so to say of the comic book publication business. I found a simple but very nice data model for breakeven analysis on digital webbing forums posted by Stephen Smirl.
So in my spare time I decided to create a web based wizard for that model. I hacked up a quick and dirty version using Google Web Toolkit and it can be viewed at http://www.mohaps.com/breakeven/
It’s butt ugly, but functional
Do use it and let me know your comments, crits and feedback.

I did a WordPress upgrade today. If you accessed the site between 11:15 AM EST – 11:30 AM EST on 12th Aug 2008 and got some weird stuff in your browser, I apologize for that.
New WordPress version seems to be rocking … so far
