The Latest Banter....

Regarding your comment in the latest Banter about setting up an RSS feed for your site, I thought I'd let you know that, in a way, someone's already done the work. Bruno is one of the sites available for subscription on Darkgate Comic Slurper (, which gives you an RSS feed for any number of strips. I know that I subscribe to Bruno through them, just so I can read the strip in my Bloglines subscription.
Now, I know that what they're doing is probably not fully legit, and may be creating a problem with your ad revenue. What I was wondering...and other readers may be as whether your stats show a hit every time your strip is delivered through Darkgate's feed? Is their service a benefit to you in any way, or is it just a ripoff? The bigger strips (i.e. Dilbert, Get Fuzzy, et al) don't seem to have a problem with them, so I'm assuming they're not techincally illegal...but are they a help or a hinder?

I used to browse that one a bit, even though it did seem a bit like cheating.

I eventually dropped it, mostly because it only picked up the first image file from the sites it scanned. This meant that comics posting two individual strips at a time, like Zebra Girl, were incomplete (and a third occasional strip was never picked up at all, iirc, because it wasn't in the same section as the comic). I think syndicated strips like Spider-Man may have fallen into this category, too... there seemed to be huge chunks missing for a completed storyline.

But maybe the system has gotten better since then...

*huge ka-BUMP*

AutoKeen now spits out RSS feeds too, by the looks of things.

Unfortunately this only covers the strips, not the Tribune, but I'm sure there must be a way of doing this.
