We've grown to be big fans of our colleague Joo's HJ-Story. It reminds us of the old "Happiness is warm puppy" series with Snoopy and the Peanuts gang. So Joo and I thought we'd have some fun and try to cross-pollinate our audience! So here's our HJ-Story tribute. Please check out his comic, it's adorable and addictive. Here's a link to the one we are toasting!

You might notice we're experimenting with Tapastic's new EMBED feature. Yep, it needs some tweaks, but it's a cool way to put the JoT on your site, and still give us views that earn us some dough. Check it out, the EMBED button, just below the comic on Tapastic.

About us...

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech is now in its 12th year. We're very proud to be featured regularly on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), and Folha in Brazil, and Mashable!

You can follow us on Twitter @Nitrozac and @Snaggy, or on Google+ at +Nitrozac JoT and +Snaggy JoT.

We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OSX. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit,, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.

with three blade propellers!
