We're holding a book giveaway over on our Patreon page. It's for a signed- by-the-authors copy of Ransomware: Defending Against Digital Extortion by Allan Liska and Timothy Gallo, with a couple of comics by us! Just reply to the post to enter, and in a few days or so, I'll pick a winner using a fancy random number generator.

On a side note, Nitrozac and I are taking a few days away from the comic this week for several reasons, one of them being I'm having surgery. Update: I had it and I'm doing pretty good. In the meantime, here's one of my favorite comics from days gone by... Cheers,

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 and pop culture news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech is now in its, whoa... 16th year.

You can follow us on Google+ at +Nitrozac JoT and +Snaggy JoT and +JoyofTech

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 OS X. 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.
