Re-Code Accomplished!

Info

Published: April 18, 2008 | By admin

Ok, so those now using IE 6 should be fine. IE 5 and 5.5 are still having some problems, but the comic is at least viewable, so I'm going to hang a big banner up and say "Problem Solved" at this point. Later, when I have time, I'm going to make up a 'low-fi' version of the page which those using antiquated or otherwise malfunctioning browsers can still use to read AoD.

Problems with IE 6 and below…

Info

Published: April 17, 2008 | By admin

It's come to my attention that there are some problems displaying the new site design correctly in IE 5.5 and 6, with the comic appearing far down the page, somewhere after the last elements but before the footer. So far, the problem appears to be limited to IE 5.5-6.... IE 7, Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Safari, and a bajillion linux programs all say the code is fine. This appears to be another occurance of a fairly well documented (but ultimately unresolved) bug with how IE handles the "float" command. IE's troubleshooting recommendation, I believe, is to upgrade to IE 7 if at all possible.I'm working up a workaround right now, however the whole "float" command is rather important to the dynamic layout... So if you are still using IE 5.5/6, I'm sorry, and I feel your pain. The super-nice fast nifty computers I have here at work only have IE 6.0.29xxxxx, and since they're company owned, we're not allowed to upgrade the version of IE we're using. If you are able, at all, to upgrade (or go to a different platform, such as Firefox, which I won't even bother linking to) now would probably be as good a time as any, since it's only going to get worse from here out.

Free Speech Week

Info

Published: April 14, 2008 | By admin

As a person who used to work heavily in various forms of media and as a person who now has a comic which (hopefully) pushes the occasional sociopolitical button, the first amendment is near and dear to my heart... so this week's comics all have a common theme of Free Speech.I've re-applied to Project Wonderful, so hopefully in 24-48 hours I'll have some ad spaces that are actually usable... the tower ad on the side, of course, and maybe a 4x1 grid of buttons along the bottom of the comic before yon newspost... assuming they decide I've now done enough comics to merit them wasting their time with ads on the site, that is.Also, I'm working up a Cast page. It's not easy, given that while I have a few recurring characters amidst a storm of chaos and disorder, however there've been a few who inquired about crossovers and whatnot, so I feel I owe it to them to give them something to work with. Maybe.

2008-04-07 : Week In Review

Info

Published: April 12, 2008 | By admin

I'm going to try this here and on the forums [1] to see which one gets more response... if, you know, any... The basic idea behind the Week in Review is that sometimes I want to comment on my own comics... difficulties I had working something out, origins of a joke, interesting things you may not have known, alternate versions of punchlines... stuff like that. Also, since I often will draw the comics first out in pencil/paper (usually just a storyboard to script action and placements out), if I have a really good rough sketch I might post those here from time to time. This week was "Big Things" theme week, a week dedicated to objects larger than a prehistoric man-eating breadbox: Title: The Terror of Gayzilla [2] Date: Monday, 4-7-2008 Style: Experimental (Neon on black) Creation: The style mostly came about from two sources... I was playing around with PSP's "Neon" Picture Tube tool trying to come up with something neat to use it for (other than lightsabers) and decided to make a frame for the comic. Then, some buildings... then the rest just sort of happened. Notes: Obviously a riff on Godzilla and the other kaiju which were formative in my youth. This was actually the 3rd AOD comic I ever wrote, and one of my personal favorites, however for some reason I kept putting off putting it up until now. The Apple is hidden on the guy's shirt in the last panel. Title: Fowl Play [3] Date: Wednesday, 4-9-2008 Style: Standard (Color on light texture squares) Creation: Played around with layers a bit for the squares here. There's two layers of transparency, each with a different gradient, the bottom one slightly smaller than the top. That's how the edges of the squares have that weird gauzy drop-off effect. Other than that, I did some shading... that's about it. Notes: I'm a big fan of "misunderstanding" jokes. This is actually a play on the classic "Duck!" joke, except in reverse and with a giant pissed-off chicken. The guy in the hoodie is named Art, and he will be back. The Apple is hidden in the logo on the truck in the 3rd panel. Title: Curse of the Giantess [4] Date: Friday, 4-11-2008 Style: Standard (Color on light texture squares) Creation: This one was a pain in the ass. I drew the entire thing once in vectors, then before I had a chance to color it (or save it) Windows Vista decided that it was time to restart my computer. So then I drew it again. Grrr. Then again, I think the second one may actually have come out better. Notes: The return of the knight from the Law & Order comic a couple weeks ago! Once again, he's getting the short end of the stick. This comic was inspired by my good friend "Mike"... I don't remember how this came up, but I said something about a giantess using a sheep in an "alternative to normal sheep usage" method... and he recoiled in horror... and then it was a webcomic. The Apple is hidden as the jewelled top of the king's staff in Panel 3.

Out of Curiosity…

Info

Published: April 8, 2008 | By admin

Has anyone actually looked over here and seen that I have a blog yet? It's got an RSS feed and everything.I just wondered.Anyway, while The Apple remains in a perpetual state of "under construction", I can attest to the fact that real actual progress has been made within the last week or so:Links page is up and running... and almost completely set up correctly.AOD has officially joined the ranks of [i]nsignificant comics [1].AOD now has a forum [2] of it's own with my new friends over at [i]nsignificant comics. I registered AOD for TopWebComics. The voting button is conspicuiously hidden on the main page.Started a rather successful campaign of ads on Project WonderfulAOD got Stumbled... by his Lord of Noddyness, NobleSavage, no less.So, coming off that, I'm officially announcing this week to be "Big Things" week, with three themed comics all pertaining to things bigger than a giant mutant radioactive breadbox. Enjoy [1] http://www.insignificantcomics.com/ [2] http://www.insignificantcomics.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=20
