A friend of mine knows someone who builds computers on the side, so I had arranged to buy the parts and go see him so he could make me a wonderful little dream machine. Good time had by all. Until he noticed the glitch when we tried to install the OS the first time.

And then when we bought a new part to troubleshoot, it turns out the glitch was something else.

All pretty normal when you’re doing this kind of thing, but I’ve had such bad luck with my past few computers that it doesn’t take much to freak me out.

This was an incredibly refreshing strip to make. It’s a simple little concept but I broke almost all my usual rules and conventions while doing it and I think the end result is quite slick.
