#1 My 56k Dial-Up Connection Sucks!

I go back to college next week with ULTRA BROADBAND though, so everybody's happy.

I was starting to get worried... :(
At least I know why it was delayed now...

56k sucks. I'm still stuck with it and it appears there's no escape in sight. GAH!

Don't you have a pendrive, portable drive or zip disk and a friend, cyber cafe, school, university with a better connection?

I do at college, but it's the Easter break at the moment. I be back there Monday, then it's back to the regularly update. Yes.

Why #7 is also late...

Excuse #2: Time Travelling Affects My PC!

I know it sounds odd... Episode 7: Deathtastic, involves a lot of special effects. For some reason, this effect that I used made the FLA file 38MB. After some edits, I cut it down to 19MB, but the thing wouldn't save.

So now, when I finally complete the episode, the effects will look all rubbish and cheap. I feel so disappointed.

It's the SWF that matters, remember?

True, but the crash did lose half of the episode.

Friz, you don't sound very happy doing this webtoon. Which shows, because the episodes are dull and the jokes are weak and forced. You should go do something else.

You're right, I wasn't happy. Which is why I've completely changed it around. You should see the result around June.

I actually enjoyed how Pete didn't rely entirely on randomness and lack of structure to be entertaining.

Unlike, say, everything else on KeenToons. People sat through the first ten RB&Cs, but weren't willing to accept a wayward pogo stick's humble beginnings?

I was. But I'm glad Friz is still going after it, even if I have to wait.

And Friz, if I recall from the other thread ("I'm A Jerk"), you said something about a new section on keenToons. Is it a section without a weekly deadline or something?...or did I just imagine that whole thing up? It happens. Really.

Correct.

In the next month, I'm gonna be on the ball and animate my ass off (I'm not actually going to animate a cartoon of my ass falling off... that'd just be weird)

In June, a new section will be up. Updates will vary from once a week to once every three weeks. The way you'll know it's been updated is by regularly checking the site, or a handy link will be in this forum.

Anybody regularly vist Fat-Pie.com? David Firth does amazing cartoons, but there's no regular update. Maddox as well.. he doesn't do on-time weekly updates or fortnightly updates.

Plus, the new section won't follow one character. It'll be a mix of series' and one-off cartoons. Expect Pete and some old 21 characters to be in the mix.

June 2005.

What is Maddox?

And this new section.. I don't really understand. Is it gonna be like where one guy makes some totally different cartoon every month?

Check him out here. Me and my friends in real life think he's hilarious, but a lot of people, specificly interney people, hate him.

Oh, and Friz, interesting new format, which is probably a lot better for flash animation. Requiring all these flash animations to be weekly seems to me like requiring all web comics to be daily, so this really makes sense. Hope things turn out awesome for you.

Well a 1-3 week deadline seems good. I stop doing my weekly ones this week because 1, it's too hard to do it in such small time, and 2, I'm not having fun with it. So I think this sounds like a good idea.
