Newman Goes Live

Well, it's going to take a while to sort this whole mess out, but Newman (my long form story) has officialy launched. This will be taking place of the strips, and was a decision I thought long and hard over.

The issue has been that I simply have to much on my plate right now, and trying to juggle two comics at the same time was to much stress. I also realized that I was only doing the strip because I felt obligated.

Now, this does not mean that I will never do any more strips, in fact they will be popping there heads in off and on, however they will not be in any sort of routine update schedule.

I have enough things in my life stressing me out right now, I don't need my comics to be one of them.

Over the next few weeks/months I will be fleshing out the new URL and the site will be moving over there. will become more of a portfolio site and have links to various works, including "Newman".

I'm taking my time on this new site and using dreamweaver instead of the wretched GoLive. I will also be using CSS and hardcoding this thing properly. It's super simple right now, but I just wanted to get something up. I also want to have a blog directly on the homepage (gotta figure that one out.)

I will have an archive of the Wizard and Snort strips somewhere on the site, and may even doing something to the effect of what apple geeks has done with the "apple geeks light" under the main comic. *shrug* We will see.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy this new story, I know I'm having a lot of fun putting it together, and I really like where it's going.

Onward we march, into the vast unknown.

Internet Worries

*le sigh*

So I set up a new studio in the house this weekend to do my work, which was great. I've got more space, a clean enviroment and minimal distractions... of course I also have a less then amazing internet connection. My Imac has a built in airport wireless internet, but I'm having trouble getting it to respond to the router from where I'm at. There's a few possible ways I can try to fix this, but if all else fails, I will be moving the computer back to my room. This is way there has been no comic monday. Uploading Fridays comic was an absolute nightmare. Everytime I tried to upload the new index, completely different pages that I haden't touched for years where showing up as my homepage, and then it was just white and broken for most of the day because I had to go to work. Then several hours later, I finally got it back up... so, I'm a little scared to try and post again until I get my internet back up properly.

If this continues too long, I will start posting the new strips here in the blog. I should have this resolved pretty soon however.

Sneak peak!!

Thought I would give you guys a taste of what I'm working on. These are the first two pages (without words) from my long form project "Newman". I'm pretty excited about this project, I'll keep you guys posted as I get farther along.

It's official...

I HATE GOLIVE!!! This has to be the worst program adobe has ever made. What kind of program just randomly decides to change links that you have made in past pages??? I can create a page, let's say 45. I will set the forward button to link to page 46, and the back button to link to page 44. I will save everything and load it. Then I load up the page and when I press the back button it goes to 41 instead of 44. I bring up the html file and sure enough, it has changed without me doing it. I really, really, hate this program. If you are experiencing these issues, I apologize, I'm trying to fix all of them as I find them.

I'm still learning Dreamweaver, CSS, and web standards and will be rebuilding the site from the ground up once I'm comfortable with the programing.

Getting Back on Track

Well, I've been running on the excuse that I've got to much work to get done to update properly, but I don't like that. I want to apologize for missing so many updates lately, and I will be getting back on track. There WILL be a comic up today and I plan to get back ahead of myself so this doesn't happen again. I will also be posting some screens of the new full length story I've been working on called "Newman".

I feel like I've been making this comic a third wheel, and that's not fair to the comic, or you the reader.
