Comments Fixed (Now with No Login)

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

I noticed a serious drought in commenting lately.

About a month ago the site was getting hammered with spam so I started fiddling with the commenting settings in an effort to blacklist / stop the spam-bot that was attacking the site.  I thought I had returned the settings back to normal after the attack stopped but I had left the ‘logged in to comment’ box still checked.

It should be all fixed now.  Feel free to start commenting again.  Good, bad or grammatically.

You’ll still need to put in a username and something in the email address box. I don’t use this information for anything other than pre-authorizing past commenters.

Happy commenting

Website Restored

Friday, September 4th, 2009

The website was broke for most of Friday.  I didn’t notice until right away because the front page loaded just fine.  But if you tried to click on anything all the links were dead. I saw the stats earlier in the day (which were next to nothing)and just chalked it up to it being the a perfect storm of no new comic, the Friday before a long weekend and that suddenly everyone had become tired of the site.  Luckily it appears I was wrong.

I think I fixed whatever caused everything to die (…give me a shout if you find something still broken @hypnobee). I was also able to update wordpress (which I don’t think really means anything to anyone except me) and I also updated the social bookmark / share thing at the bottom of the cartoons so now you can tweet your favourite comics. 

Thanks to Naex for the heads up of the site being totally busted.

Interview – Comix 411

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Tom Mason from Comix 411 interviewed me. It’s pretty great,  if you like to listen to me go on and on about myself.

Just kidding, but it is a decent length though. The interview covers how I got started in webcomics, my process and other things.

Check it out here.

Thanks again Tom.

Downward Spiral

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Apologies to people who’ve come here over the last few weeks to find next to no updates.

Here’s the short story of what’s been going on.

Two weeks ago I came down with a pretty nasty flu. I was totally out of it for a few days. I started feeling better, I went back to work. I tried to get back into my normal schedule of things despite not feeling a 100%.  After a week of this I continued to feel run down and had now gotten a pretty nice cold.

I started waking up in the middle of the night feeling as though my lungs had stopped working (not to exaggerate too much but it was pretty terrifying) and I had to cough and cough to kick start them back up again. After two nights of this I finally went to the doctor to find out, surprise! I have pneumonia.

I’ve been on antibiotics for the last five days and pretty much been doing nothing but resting. I’m starting to feel slightly better. But I’m going to be taking it easy for the next little bit.  Updates will most likely be spotty.
