Corporate creative departments have always been a target market for the company I work for. They tend to have more money to spend on a regular basis than home studios so one corporate client can provide the income that would otherwise require multiple small clients. Corporate clients usually already had an IT department but that department usually had PC/Windows expertise and rarely felt comfortable supporting the Apple computers that the creative departments used. Often the IT departments were glad to have us take the Mac support off their plate.
This strip was the second of three comic strip ideas that my boss had me pull out of the larger, abandoned comic book. I don’t remember what our hero here is upset about but we can assume that it’s computer related. It probably has to do with server issues. Back in 2002 it was usually only our large clients that even had servers.
