I started a strip that updates daily at my site. It is accessable from the top page.

I am also thinking of starting up an arena for jams. If anyone is interested, feel free to send stuff. You can start off your own story or participate in any other story on the jams area. So far there is nothing up, so if you want to participate now, feel free to start something and get in touch with me!

Also, feel free to post any jams that contain work you do on your own site (preferably with a link to the jam area on my site)

...yeah, this is taking a lot of time out of each day, but it is a lot of fun! Right now I am on "vacation" from school, so I wind up spending a couple hours when I should limit myself to one hour.

I am doing one in Japanese too, which also adds time to the project. The Japanese language daily strip is not a translation, but a totally different strip... though recently I have been just using the same pictures with different story lines. I wonder how long that technique will work.

Anyhow, I have been doing both languages everyday, so feel free to check it out again...

...wow, that' serious. I can't find the source of the problem, but hopefully I can knock some skulls around and get the page back online. Thanks for checking in! Have you been reading the daily strip, and if so, what do you think?

wel, I did till yer site went down. not daily though. it's weird and nice the way most of your stuff is.
though I have to say that one panel a day is somehow not enough to want to get back there as soon as there's more.

I got a message from my provider saying that they are investigating the problem... we'll see what happens.

Yeah, I wouldn't expect people to check back every day just to see one more panel. But since I do a panel everyday, you can check back at anytime during the week and be garaunteed to see new material of some sort... Or you can check back once a month and get a whole new page or so of new material. Or once a year. Or once every three years.

Or twice in your life time...

Anyhow, thanks for tuning in sometimes!

The site is back up on the incredible internet, along with some new posts to the daily strip. I am finally getting the sense of pacing and spacing with the "gutter".

By the way, does anyone know how to use a Director file in such a way that doesn't make your viewer have to get a new download in order to view it?

Also, I have inplimented "frame sets" on the site, so if you want to enjoy the plush ride frame set style, with the pleasurable convinience of a static banner always being your friend up at the top, then tune on in to the main page.

Note: all links in this message actually go to the same place. I'm going absolutely link crazy!

Links are good- They're helpful and the cost nothing.

On the other hand, I think you've just discovered one of the drawbacks of using frames on a site- it's more difficult to direct somebody to a single page, since the variable content is supposed to be viewed within another, static, page.

On the other, other hand, for the author, frames make things easier, because you only have to code one menu, and if that manu needs to change because you want to add a new section to your site, you only need to edit one page. My solution- which may not work for everyone- was to learn some scripting (in my case, php) which allows me to code the menu in one place and include it on any pages I like for a similar ease of setup, but without resorting to frames.

If you're drawn to frames for menus for aesthetic reasons, there are similar effect that can be achieved in static pages by using CSS (can't find an exact link to the technique, but this is a good page to start).
