Moral of the story? Never lie.
[May 2, 2022]
Next comic is underway everyone, sorry kept getting sidetracked with things over the last couple of months.
Parents always find a way to get to the truth. We all know this.
So! This is now officially the final comic I have made on my old computer.
Those of you who have followed me through the years remember the many crashes, hiccups and meltdowns I’ve had even when I was making Cup-Get.
If not, here’s the breakdown:
Back in 2015 my first computer that I bought in 2012 had a monumental crash that took everything with it.
So I got a newer one, and it worked wonders.
However, one night in 2019, after work I came home to find a message saying “Windows boot system not found”…
So that was the fate of my now 4 year old computer’s boot device. It could still run but needed an operating system.
Enter my first computer’s Hard drive, and an external hard drive with the newer one in it.
So if you add up the years? I’ve been working on a now 10 year old computer at this point.
Then not one week ago on Valentines day, Brooke (my girlfriend) got me something I didn’t even expect. A brand new computer, not broken busted or anything, for Valentines day/our 3 year anniversary (if you’re reading this, honey? You’re the best, never forget that)
So now it’s time to retire the old and somewhat busted, and the new hotness will come into the Comic Making game.
Be back soon with the next comic!
Worked on a ten-year old computer, beautiful girlfriend got me a new and better one.
Speaking of Cup-Get, I don’t know if you’re aware, but it’s still up over at becomics. It’s got up to page 365, the start of the Day o’ Fun
I am, however a lot of people have trouble navigating that site.
I’m back from trying to navigate the Cup-Get website, & I’m forced to say that it’s an insultingly difficult experience, to deal with the GUI over there. Both on a Pixel, as well as on a Motorola mobile phone, the insistent pop-ups block most of the actual content, with no way to get them out of the way.
I agree, the BeComics site isn’t the best. I’m looking into maybe just putting it online on Tapas or something, because I have a sequel in the works.
Whatever you settle upon, I hope it allows us a more user friendly navigation. The current site will eventually bring you to the pages 1-to-365 (but none of the rest), but only by forcing you to start at page one. If you leave in mid-story & later return, you’re forced to pickup at page one again. Not everyone has that large a chunk of time to devote to a story, however good it is. A page index or bookmarking option would make a big difference. Even just the 5 universal buttons:
… sometimes, you just don’t appreciate how much you rely on a feature, until it’s suddenly not an option.
I understand that, I can’t even log into the site for some reason O_o
And yeah I definitely agree on the universal buttons, it’s a big time saver.
In some of the fancier sites, you can find 7 buttons:
…by keeping it all on the same page, less time is spent in searching.
Maybe it’s my new phone, or maybe I did something else different, but the pop-up option used my gaming tag (_DMC_Run_) instead of the name I usually comment with (_D.Caine_).
It’s not a big deal, just a curiosity.
Huh, that is odd. I’m not sure why, I’ll root around and see what’s up.
