Donate to CREATE South

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

I’ll keep it short and sweet. Today is the donation drive day for CREATE South, a conference being held in SC this April. From their site:

Saturday, April 25th, 2009 we will be holding the second annual CREATE South conference. It will be held at the Horry Georgetown Technical College, Grand Strand Campus in lovely Myrtle Beach. It is a meeting for those interested in blogging, podcasting, video, social networking or any other form of self-expression. Serving the residents of the Grand Strand and beyond, it is a venue to bring together like minded people to network, to teach and to learn. If you would like to get involved in these arenas but don’t know how to start, this is the place to be. With introductory presentations and hands-on detailed demos, the beginners and the experts alike will have plenty to learn.

Check out the CREATE South site and donate a buck or two. The first year was a great time with lots of learning and networking opportunities.

Hope to see y’all there! :)

XL Comics

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009

EDIT :: Sad news. XL Comics is no longer available due to funding issues. Anyone with extra cash should get in touch with Tim (see the comments) Maybe we can bring them back!

I’m not sure when or how I stumbled upon XL Comics, but I immediately subscribed to the RSS feed and have been happily enjoying it ever since. Despite Tim’s assertion that he can’t draw, the magic marker drawings are wonderful and inspired. Also, it’s funny as heck.

XL Comics is based on Extra Large, a radio show, with Andy and Tim on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tony is my favourite character so far. Forget “Danger,” deranged is the new middle initial .. D is for deranged!
