Unshelved comic strip for 3/22/2012

Not Invented Here's Kickstarter

IT Barrier Tape

Perhaps you know that I help make a whole other comic strip called Not Invented Here - it's about the funny people who make software for a living.

A little while back we did a sequence where we introduced a new character called Mike Oscar, Head of IT, who establishes a perimeter around his computer repair using custom yellow barrier tape that says "Helpless Luddites Keep Out: Computer Repair In Progress". There was an immediate demand to buy it.

It turns out that manufacturing such an item at a reasonable cost requires a fairly high minimum order, so we are financing it through Kickstarter. If you're new to Kickstarter, it's a great way to fund a project with minimal risk: backers pledge a donation, for which they receive a premium. If the minimum funding level is not reached, no one pays anything. If it is, the pledges get paid out, the project happens, and everyone gets their goodies.

If you do computer repair, or know someone who does, please help make this funny thing real by backing our project today!
