The System 558: Carpe Gadget

While “carpe diem” is normally translated as “sieze the day”, this is actually not an accurate translation. “Carpe” is better translated as “to pick, pluck, pluck off, cull, crop, gather”, so it would be a better (though less catchy) definition to say “Pluck the day”. Of all the possible days you could pick for the day you might have, try to choose the best one you can. Or, in this case, do your best being careful with picking your gadgets.

San Francisco Bound

For those in the San Francisco area, I’m leaving tonight with cohorts of the Super Art Fight crew to head to Macworld | iWorld, to participate in our first ever west coast Super Art Fight appearance. If you’re attending Macworld, be sure to come by and check us out! If not, you can watch it LIVE. Details on the show and how to watch live here.¬†Basically, at 2pm PST / 5pm EST on Friday, go to the Macworld uStream feed here (until 6pm):¬†http://www.ustream.tv/macworld

While I’ve been to SF before, it’s been a while and I’m looking to find some good coffee, have some In-N-Out, and generally have a great time with the rest of the SAF crew. If you want to follow how that’s going, or share any local insight, be sure to follow along on Twitter as we post under #superartfight and #SF_SAF. Or just follow my general hijinks on Twitter @rosscott.

The System 495: Veni, Vidi, Velcro

Thanks to my friend Nate, who also built the HilariAwesome.com store, for originally giving me the line “Veni Vidi Velcro” three years ago. So if you ever need a programmer, let Nate know. He’s awesome.

Nate gave me that line three years ago at SXSW when we first met, and there it sat, in my pile of comic notes until this very day when I finally decided to do something with it. Of course it’s already on Urban Dictionary, but their definition barely seems appropriate and doesn’t even MENTION farts.

This is now, by the way, the second comic to feature Latin. The first being “The System 280: Overt” which is I think my brother’s favorite comic and one at which I still laugh.

The System 280: Overt

Can you make out the emblem? It’s in Latin, because I can.
