Stopover at Coding Horror/The N00b: When Life Imitates Art

It's been a busy month for me, mainly with coming back from a trip, planning another one, entertaining people and planning to move house.

And possibly yet another dive trip to Sipadan, one of the meccas of diving... :D

Anyway I apologize if I've been behind on the blogging. Heck I'm even behind on my comic, so I guess the blog is suffering a bit. But as you all know I'd rather write when I truly have something to say, as opposed to writing for the sake of updating frequently.

Something that caught my attention recently:

In all honesty that annoying Evony ad with withe puppy-eyed and guppy-chested queen has been getting on my nerves for a while, but I had no idea it got that far. 

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one to feel strongly reminded of this particular page from Gianna Masetti's The N00b. Mind you the actual comic was created long before this Evony thingmajig was made, but damn, it's freakishly uncanny.

It could almost be a parody...


  1. Ah, AdBlockPlus is wonderful. I didn't even know this Envoy thing existed until all the blogs started talking about it.

  2. Ah, it annoys me! It's on my site a lot! I shall now go block them from my ad spaces. I refuse to perpetuate annoying advertising.

  3. Yeah that Evony thing has really annoyed the crap out of me - it's been all over TAC and WCN and pretty much any other site I've visited of late, especially the bustier variations. Good to see you back, Ping - it's great you're having plenty of fun adventures even if it means we hear less from you.
