New Web Host

The newspaper comic strip couple for the 21st century, Spooner and Roxanne, come to Keenspot (and then leave)!

New Web Host

Postby TedDawson on Wed Sep 03, 2003 10:10 pm

I'll be changing web hosts sometime during the next few days. With some luck, there will be only a short down time and viewing the daily Spooner strip will be uninterupted.

This change will result in yet another new site design, as there will no longer be any banner ads. This means I'll be leaving Keenspot, so the forum won't be available after that point, either. I will try to find an alternative forum, though.

Should have some more news to post next week regarding ol' Spooner and Roxanne.

Yes, sorry, should've specified that. You'll still be coming to the same place, this site, hookedoncomics.com. The switcheroo just means that I will be moving the files that are on the Keenspot server and moving them to the server of a different webhost. There may be a short down time during the change, but I'll post when that'll be. Also, I'll be using a different script for updating the daily comic, and for the archives. This mean a few pages will have to be re-done, but shouldn't be any problems. Also have received a kind offer from Wonderdog to help me set up a new forum!

I'm thinking that the new forum should just be text. No fancy buttons or pictures, just strings of threads like in the old days. :D

Now *this* is a dead forum.

This forum never even lived.

What's that smell?

If thread necromancy is bad, what about forum necromancy? ;)

Fine, fine. I will construct more substantial, or at least give some semblance of substantiality, posts in the future.

That's really all we ask for.

If you have to post random gutteral noises and onomatapoeia, there's always the Joe Average and/or Sex & Violence forums. Sad to say, the cartoonist there spends more time apologizing for the lack of cartoons and assuring us that once he gets on track that the cartoons will start flowing like the sexual simile of your choice than he actually spends on making cartoons.

Which is too bad because he's actually got a great cartooning style. Oh well, another case of "Cool Cat Studio Syndrome" I suppose...

I am not familiar with that particular webcomic. As for Avalon... I kinda lost the desire to read it anymore. It's in my "Dead Webcomics" folder in my Bookmarks List.

It may conclude some day... but to me, it is all but dead already.

It will never be dead to me. At worst, it will remain sadly unfinished. At best, it will be happily concluded.

Some comics that I believe *are* dead include Waiting for Bob and Acid Reflux, both which were brilliant and stopped far too soon *and* in the middle of a storyline.

Well, last I heard, the website for Acid Reflux is no more. Heh... the reason why I never bothered to read AR in the first place is because the first time I heard of it, people were complaining about the lack of updates. Not exactly very encouraging in luring prospective new readers. :)

Well, I'll be dipped. It *is* gone. I must have checked it just before it went away. It was a good story, and it was really frustrating to watch it grind to a halt. The worst part was the artist claiming that she couldn't do comics at any given time because of homework. At the time I was going through an almost identical degree program, and I thought that her excuse was so much bullcrap. I had plenty of time to procrastinate, even during finals week, and I was working at a half-time job as well. Even if she couldn't update MWF, I'm sure that she could have put up a comic every week, or every other week. At the end there, there was around 4 months between the last strip and the one before it. I'm guilty of putting my creative projects off too, but never when there is somebody else waiting for it.

Man, what is this? My fifth rant of the night? Time to go to bed. :-?

If Avalon does not finish by the end of 2004. I am going to conduct a modest bet on whether it will ever finish or will it be abandoned. :)

Yeah, I was reading AR for a while, too.

Then it just died... Annoying.
