Just a short one for y'all. / _/ / /
Last week moji brought up the idea of a / \/ \/ / \
simple "port 70" sticker and the / _/ /_ _/
phlogosphere has responded with some really /- / _/ /
good ones. I thought I'd throw my hat in the \________/\________/\___/____/
ring with some pretty simple designs,
including a couple port 79 ones for the finger crowd, which you can find in
/files/stickers - they're pretty derivative, especially the oval "country of

an office laptop or slapped up around town, on sign posts and phone booths,
with no context. A secret nod to those in the know.
One thing I do think they're missing though is there's nothing about them
that says "this is computer related" so I'm going to take a couple more swings
at it with that in mind and see what shakes loose. I'd also like to introduce
some color, though black and white always looks more striking to me.
Especially if you're coming at it from a street art kind of angle, a bold
black and white sticker really jumps out when you throw it on top of a
Technicolor jumble of accumulated stickers.
Consider it a work in progress and keep your eyes peeled for more if you're

done shit but stream and slouch around. TildeTel is way behind where I was
hoping to be, not because of any issue, just because I'm slack and easily
distracted. A couple other things are kinda slowly plodding along but I don't
want to talk about them, at least until ~tel is squared away.
Will put some muscle into it this weekend hopefully, but I've said that
