o.k. so i haven't had TechTV for over a year now...but, when did the Screen Savers become so scary? [Eek!] And when did their coverage become so lame? [Confused]

I understand that sometimes comedy = exaggeration, and I assume some exaggeration has ocurred in this portrayal. However, perhaps not? Can someone, anyone, please clarify.

Was this comic made in hopes of getting a mention on TSS?
TSS just keeps getting better and better now that the Mac coverage has increased. [Smile] [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

Did you email it to them? It might drive some traffic your way if they mention you on the air?

Then again, I wonder if you'd want the traffic they'd be sendin'? Hits are hits, I guess. *shrug*

I sent the link to Patrick & Leo, as well as Megan and Martin, who do the Site of The Night.

I got an autoresponder from Leo's account. [Frown]

We'll have to watch tonight and see if it gets on*!

Update!:

I haven't seen tonight's show yet (thank The Maker for Tivo!) but I usually watch the webcams while they're doing the show and at about 2 minutes to air they were all gathered around Patrick's iBook ( [Beard of Peter Gabriel!] !) and the Jibcam clearly showed today's JoT on the screen.

Everyone was standing around looking at it: Megan, Leo, Kevin(?), Marty and a bunch of the crew.

I'll have to watch the Tivo playback to see if they mentioned it on air.

=DB

...preferring NOT to have to resort to "Power Tools of Mass Destruction"...

What's wrong about sending eCards [Confused] ?

In the "Paradise of Geekness" they offer eCards (with geeky sound!) too:

Because of a condition of his parole , Kevin cannot touch a computer until the 21'st of january.

So for him to have sent an E-card , then back to jail he goes.

I just saw the episode!
Leo said it was the best caricature of them (Leo and Patrick) that he had ever seen. AND Kevin Mitnick really is going to be on the show on the 20th or whenever (I forget.)

Way to go Nitro and Snaggy!!!

TV/radio/streaming shows always call him Shaggy. I suppose this is made up for by the fact that he is on TV/radio/streaming shows at all. At least the URL is right, right?

Hey there,

The Screensavers are linking to your home page and the archived comic about Kevin in relation to their show tonight. Looks like the Woz and other sundry guests will be their to help Kevin as he gets back in the saddle so to speak. [Cool] [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

They also had a hacked "Free Kevin-Kevin Free" ala Monday's comic on the laptop Kevin was using. Woz gave him a new Powerbook! Why couldn't he have given one to Snaggy for Christmas? [Frown]
