    Well I made another episode of my "A Boy, a Pig, and a Mac" series. I sort of made this as a last minute thing since I was staying up late and should have been in bed. Well I hope you enjoy it, sorry guys no easter eggs this time but I will have some in the next episode, ideas are always welcome just e-mail me. Enjoy!

    To view the movie visit the homepage: http://homepage.mac.com/ibook238/BPMhome.html and then just click on Episode #2

    hmm, its ok, still needs to have some interactivity. And the background is a little plain - you should have put a poster or something up on the wall.

    Look forward to seeing more.

    ask someone like a parent or someone else who is around you to edit just a bit before these things go up. i mean, it's only a few sentences, may as well get the spelling right first.

    one thing that stood out was the mac face on the ibook... quite cool. not sure what about it, just looks cool.

    i don't quite get the second one... but anyhoo.

    cool stuff. always good to do creative things with your mac, especially to learn software and stuff.

    Wow Thanks :-D

    Wow thanks, well spelling has always been my downfall but I will fix them don't worry. Since I do the comics only using my iBook's TrackPad its pretty wierd but I have gotten used to drawing with the TrackPad. I still don't have an idea for the thrid comic yet but it will come to me. Well I am so glad that you like the comics so far. I will make the website better because of right now it is just text and links and cheap little graphics, I am working on a cool Flash Webpage but I need to know how to make a copied image (from photoshop) appear in Flash MX with the same transparent things as in Photoshop. Help is always great. I will return soon!

    Re: Wow Thanks :-D

    the bad spelling and the "not to level of art of monet" is what makes your cartoon charming

    look at beavis and butthead...the art was sub-par and that was one of the great aspects of the cartoon

    keep everything the same, just come up with stuff all the time and e-mail arn on this series...it would be the perfect mascot for macrumors.com

    keep up the good work!

    Re: Wow Thanks :-D

    You could always export the photoshop layers as separate images and then apply a alpha setting on them in Flash to get transparency.

    You sould also do something about the Power4,G5 and Steve's keynote at MWSF. There is so much out there that you could choose to do - just take a look at some of the threads at MacRumors if you need ideas.

    Great job!
