Title: Nothing to report today
Date: 28 April 2007
I don't really have anything to say today. I haven't done anything to the website
this week and I've just updated Stuff of Legend. And actually, that's just about it!
Enjoy the comic!
Title: Finally summer!
Date: 21 April 2007
I don't know about the rest of the world, but here in Holland we had a pretty hot week.
Looks like summer is coming! If that doesn't put a smile on your face, nothing will.
Anyway, as you may already have noticed, I did some work on the site this week. Or rather
I finally finished and uploaded it. First of all I've added some more links to
the Links page and I finally sat down to 'fix' the code-problems
I had with the Link to Blue Uncia page. Well, 'fixed' isn't
exactly the right word. I actually got rid of the whole codesystem all together. At first
it seemed like a good idea to have the right code for every button and banner pop up in a
.txt-file as soon as you clicked on the banner you liked. However, it wasn't working properly.
You didn't get the codes at all if you clicked anything. Instead the server seemed to
translate the code and display the fully functional button in the .txt-file. Cute, but
not what I wanted... When I started to think about how I could fix this, I also started to
wonder if it was really all that usefull to have such a codesystem. First of all, if you
own a website, chances are you already know a fair bit about html. At the very least you're
likely to know how to insert something as basic as a link. You probably don't need
me to spell it out for you at all. And besides, if everybody used the codes I was offering
instead of just downloading these tiny images to their own server, their websites would
become really slow to load and I would likely end up with a huge bandwith problem. So,
in the end it just made more sense to drop the whole codesystem.
I've also done some work on the Sol Castpage. It now has
info on Matt and the three Pokémon that have appeared in the comic so far. The idea is that
I'll add more info as the comic progresses. I hope you like the changes I made to this page.
While I was making this, I already got new ideas for this page. I hope to start working on
them during the summer. I'm afraid I'm just a little bit to busy with my internships at the
moment to work on it now. Right now, the sprites of Quartz, Nile and Yuk are clickable
so go ahead and give it a try.
And finally I've also changed a few things in two of Blue Uncia's skins:
Default 3 and Blazes. I was scrolling through the website with Blazes on when I
suddenly realized that the bright red background combined with the black text was quite
painful to my eyes. I normally don't use this skin, so I hadn't noticed it before. When I
looked through my other skins, I realized that my green Default 3 skin had the same problem.
I really should have seen and solved these problems before I even put the website online
and I apologize for the inconvenience. I've chosen new background colors for these skins, which
hopefully are not as eyehurting as the first ones. And as a bonus I've also given Default 3
a background image with oakleaves for the menu.
And of course, there is also a new comic!
Title: All RAM-med up!
Date: 14 April 2007
This week my computer got an upgrade: more RAM memory! My older brother picked it for me:
Kingston 1GB DDR SDRAM PC3200 CL2.0 HyperX. Confused? Well, that makes two of us. Last time
I checked the DDR was part of Germany. Or used to be anyway... And only just half of it...
As you can probably tell, I don't know a thing about technical stuff like this, but my
brother assures me it's just about the best RAM module for this particular pc.
While it doesn't really make the pc itself any faster, it does make it less laggy and it won't
freak out as often when I open large files on Photoshop. Hey, that's good enough for me! ^_^
So, on to business. I've uploaded a new SoLpage for you to read and enjoy (hopefully). I've also
added a new link to yet another Pokémon webcomic to the Links page.
Disfunctional Pokémon Adventure is really funny
and I can't believe I didn't find this comic any earlier. And finally, I've decided to
upgrade the SoL castpage. I think the work on this page will be completed somewhere this week.
So if one of these days you happen to notice that this page is offline, it's because I've taken
it down for maintenance and a much needed upgrade!
Title: Early Updates! C'mon, you know you love 'em!!
Date: 5 April 2007
Tomorrow is Easter. So is the day after that and that day after that. We're going to
have family over, so I don't know if I'll have enough time to do a proper update this
Saturday. So I'll just do it today! ^_^
The new SoL is up, and with this page chapter 1 has finally ended! I've also added a new
link to another Pokémon webcomic in my Links page. This comic is called
A Silver Lining
and is currently being redrawn. Enjoy and happy Easter!
