It woulda been nice if the article linked
to you, or had talked about how great SoaR
is, cause it is, but it's pretty darn cool.<P>------------------

Wow, that's great, Bob! Outstanding over-the-shoulder shot of you pretending to work on SoaR. I din'know you were in NC. My brother-in-law is in the AirForce at Goldsboro. Is South Durham near there?

Thanks for the link Boxjam.<P>"Bob Roberds works on some new ideas for his comic strip, 'Soap on a Rope.' His day job is in tech support at IBM, but the Internet has provided a way for his comics to reach, at least theoretically, a mass audience."<P>Wow, who knew you had a theoretical audience Bob? I thought I was real. Maybe I just need more mass. Then I'd be less theoretical though.<P>

Perhaps we could start a little contest in
this thread along the lines of
"How many inaccuracies/examples of journalistic
sloth can you find in this Noise and Disturber
article", neh?<p>[This message has been edited by RichardIWebster (edited 02-06-2001).]

*gulp*
ORGANIZED!!!
</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Alas, in real life they're nowhere near as organized as they look in the picture. The photographer didn't use a flash so you can only see the well-lit parts of the table. Most of it is a sty, and a lot of those things in the mugs are used up markers and worn-out erasers that I keep around for no reason I can think of. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/frown.gif">
I do keep all my currently-used markers, pencils and stuff in a sorted row to the right of the paper, and despite all this, it STILL takes me 4 1/2 hours to do a strip. What up with, as they say, that?
I finally got the gumption to scan the article from the paper. Here tis: <A HREF="http://www.soaprope.com/images/NandoPage1.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.soaprope.com/images/NandoPage1.jpg</A> <A HREF="http://www.soaprope.com/images/NandoPage2.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.soaprope.com/images/NandoPage2.jpg</A>
