WAY TO GO!!!

I was watching The Screensavers on TechTV last night, and Megan Morone listed her 5 favorite online comics. Your Linux Lass comic was her #1 pic. Magnificent Valor guys

She specifically mentioned Linux Lass, but they did have the URL to JoT captioned underneath her.

Edit: hhhHHHMMMmmmm maybe you should do a Maid of the Mac one now seeing that Megan really digs the Mac.

Well, have you done your part and subscribed yet? That is a way for the site to stay alive, unless all those newly interested people click on banner ads, and I don't see that happenning.

Way to go Nitrozac and Snaggy! I just wish that I got TechTV.

Hey guys,

Megan got the stuff you sent her, she had one of the joy of tech pins at her station, and she told everyone that she appreciated stuff you sent her, especially the linux lass poster.

the combonation of the word “maid” and “mac” may be a very strechy infringment of apple's trademark, but they are sure to C&D you nonethe less (Cease and Desist)

Megan would probably be a good person to use as Maid of the Mac since she is a big Mac fan.

Many people, including Jimmy Olsen, suspect that Megan is Maid of the Mac's secret identity, but that is just not true. The two have been seen together in the same comic frame.

Please people, stop the speculation and rumours about Maid of the Mac! We are trying to keep a lid on this! This is a top secret Snaggy-works project.... we just can't say precisely when or if her debut is, due to security concerns, and also the threat of people not buying Linux Lass merchandise in anticipation of M of the M's debut.

Speculators like Rednivek thrive on whipping up the current Maid of the Mac FRENZY for their own selfish goals and delutions of appearing in a Maid of the Mac episode. Please show some restraint folks!
