Humble Pie, Going Cheap!



Friends, and by golly even horrible enemies, know that I hate asking for help, but I'm on Tavisha's computer right now because mine just went kaplowie. Actually, just the hard drive went kaplowie. The information is safe, but it's on a Time Machine drive, and I can't recover it without it erasing whatever drive it loads to. My iMac is, of course, now 3 months past its warranty, but I just need to buy and install a new internal drive into this mac and then I can have the Time Machine poop its amazingness into it.

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 9th of June is supposed to be the launch of our new web comic series called @Tavicat, the story of two adorable house cats and the dark gods they worship. These dark gods also seem bent on preventing the launch of this comic without sacrifice. And so I must humiliate myself for them. Dark gods jerks. They know I am a prideful hobo.

So! This is a limited time offer. Very limited. If you go to http://www.tavicat.com/donate.html and hit the "Donate" button, donate any amount, and include your address, two things will happen: 1) my hobo heart will fill with shame; 2) and I will sign this small print of GIR to whomever you like and mail it to you:

This month is not a good month for iMac hard drives. Mine went down in flames earlier this week as well. =/ Checks the couch for money.

Feed the kitty! Ride the pig! Save the comic!

I congratulate you on having the sense to make backups. I'm still trying to wish my broken hard drive back into life so I can get all my emails off it.

They may be green but those aren't hills, are they? Oh god, that means the tree... the tree is--

Sorry about the computer. You know I'd help if I could.

Still, it's the thought that counts. So, your drive should be fixed now. You can thank me later.

I know it screws the whole thought-counting-and-fixing-everything all to hell, but it turns out I did still have a few bucks in my PayPal account.

Don't send the print though. Postage is stupid, I'd rather all I sent go to the problem and I already have that image on that record thing you signed for me years ago.

Not to mention that I'd feel like a real shit getting a print in return for the sad pittance I managed to computer magic at you.

The real shame is here, my friend, here beneath these bulbous man titties, here in my swollen, taco clogged heart.

That sucks! I hate paypal but donated anyway. Perhaps it did not fall under the "very limited time" umbrella, but I hope it will help.

Thank you, everyone! Your response has enabled me to get a larger driver than I expected to, that's for sure. Here is the update: http://rikkisimons.livejournal.com/50778.html

Gilgrim says that you already have enough donations to cover what you need. If he is full of lies please let us know, we'd be happy to help.

I would love to donate, but the link, and www.tavicat.com, appear to be down...I'm getting a 503 error. When it's back up, drop me a reply and I'll absolutely donate!

Yeah, the site is getting hit pretty hard. I wasn't expecting so many people so soon! But I guess this is all good. Hopefully I can fix that with Verio in the morning.
