    More people who've learned from Rich's success:

    Atomic Robo has a Kickstarter to finish the animated short they started two years ago. It beat its goal in three days. So now they're setting new goals, including as many as four new full-fledged shorts, additional donor rewards, the development of an iOS pinball game, etc.

    I agree, the end of something good is at best bittersweet. Damn, I remember how I felt watching the last ep of MST3K....

    Just a minor concern regarding the Sticky Shticks adventure game expansion:

    I pledged $40 and chose the $24 reward package. I had added $10 onto my pledge to cover shipping to the UK and $6 to add a Sticky Shticks expansion. However, I recieved when I the reward email on February 27th, there didn't seem to be an option to add the expansion. Have I misunderstood here?

    Also, I messed up the $24 level and left out the choice for Sticky Shticks. If you pledged at that level and included the $6 extra, just indicate it in the Comments field. Sorry.

    I had heard of these before, but never really understood what it was all about. Thanks so much for the review link.

    I hope Rich already has his ordered -- that thing just looks... sweeeeeet!!!

    I have to go with that assessment. Under normal circumstances, I'd be a little green eyed monster of envy. But, nope... not in these circumstances.

    Rich, if you don't buy that lovely beast of HD heavenliness (and struggle for a good week -OK, 2 weeks- with working out how to use it) when the bank account goes *ding*, I'll not forgive!

    Default A thought bout the kickstarter banner

    Whoa... on the kickstarter banner is Elan, Hayley, Durkon and Roy... but NO Belkar(that will be dead on the end of the year) and Vaarsuvius that fell into the trap... well, probably (or i hope) it is just a stupid thought. But if that it does mean the end of Vaarsuvius...

    That's just part of continuing the comic story from the Kickstarter update charts. Belkar is tied up with a long line of people beating him up, and Vaarsuvius is in that line waiting for a turn.

    It's taken from the final chart, where Belkar was too busy being kicked to say thanks, and Vaarsuvius was too busy lining up to kick him.

    This reminds me - just before the drive ended, Rich conceeded and agreed that some of the funds would go to assorted this-and-that (like the Cintiq, upgraded servers, etc).

    But that line/status is missing from the Workometer. Rich, you cannot leave that off - you deserve it, and are entitled to it!!

    Seconded!

    Add "Office Supplies" on the workmeter, as well: that'll include a reinforced desk, a wonderfully ergonomic chair (leather optional) and, more importantly, a new rig to cope with the new tablet-kit. And, all well deserved.

    Filing cabinets might have to happen to deal with the IRS back-draft from the drive, but, they're more boring... I mean the cabinets, not the IRS. Honest!

    The workometer displays what he owes us. We paid for it, and we have a right to know that he's working on it.

    Things he owes to himself he is under no obligation to document to us.

    I'm not sure if the Giant would consider it a necessity or a sacrilege to put some Order of the Stickers on the Cintiq. But I'd certainly appreciate an action shot with a bestickered Cintiq

    I figured that it would just look too forced for V to be smiling appreciatively, he/she does a little of this but none of this. And Belkar smiling is just scary.

    When do we want it? When Rich can provide it without noticeably affecting the quality and update schedule of the main comic!

    I'd prefer it if Rich found a way to split his consciousness between ten different Rich-clones, eight of whom produce strips and bonus content at the speed of light, while the other two rob banks to help fund OOTS.

    Actually, I would say the Workometer shows the progress of REWARDS... and any other stuff that he announced would happen as goals were met, etc. And there is no problem with it showing rewards for himself.

    Just as the workometer shows the progress of the reprinting of the books (several goals), and the progress of various strips/PDFs (more goals), and even the progress of other extras like coloring books (yet more goals), it also deserves showing the status that 'operating fund' reward (albeit a reward to himself).

    No, I'm not asking for every minute detail of how he spends it, just something to show that he is indeed processing those funds. He designs new plans for the site - yellow box lights up. He pays for the IT help to do it - green box lights up. He buys his Cintiq - another green box is light up. He secretly takes a break and goes to Disneyland - all we know is... another green box lights up.

    Well, a cintiq seems a fine tool, and i expect rich would probably find good use for it to produce more oots, so it would be an oots-oriented purchase and not personal swag.
    And anyway, even after you take away taxes, shipping, what is due to kickstarter and amazon, and the cost of the various stuff, rich should still end up with enough money to buy one.

    But on another topic, he said he would try to update at the beginning of this week, and still no new kickstarter update. Shall I start to get worried?

    No update yet because I didn't manage to get enough done to warrant it. Generally, the updates will come when I have something to report, and this week has been filled with meetings and appointments, but not much progress. Maybe tonight or tomorrow.

    That said, the magnets arrived in Houston today. Shipping of magnet-only packages should begin tomorrow.

    I believe he said earlier that the money doesn't hit his account until the middle of this month, so he probably hasn't been able to order it, for the same reason he hasn't started the book printings.

    Agreed! I didn't realize that there would SOOO MANY needed. Also LOVE the remark, "Does not stick to Wood.": Good also to see that the Sticky Schticks and coloring book are moving along nicely. The Giant even has started sketching out some stuff for Dim Sun.
