A link and some other stuff…

Comic Pants is the new comics review site launched by my friends Randy Lander, Dave Farabee, Nick Budd, and Dave Martindale.  Randy has spent the last five years at The Fourth Rail, and Farabee has been on Ain’t it Cool News for I don’t know how long.  All four have a great love of comics.  Hell, I’ve tried more great comics based on Randy’s recommendations than I care to count.  And really, just because Randy has a man crush on the original Captin Boomerang does not mean his opinions aren’t valid, just creepy.

Also, now that I have the laptop (which may end up being my primary computer), I’m thinking about running Linux on it.  I hear it’s like installing God as your OS or something.  I need more info, though.  Specifically, I need to know if I’ll be able to run the following programs on Linux: Word 97, Photoshop 5, Illustrator 7.  iTunes would be a big plus.  I know a lot of those programs are old as the hills, but A) I’m cheap, and B) I have the learning curve of a lobotomized four-year-old when it comes to new software.  So, if anybody can help me out with info or advice, that would be awesome.
