Episode 223: “What’s our plan?”

Hopefully you’re safe and well!

Big thanks to new Patreon supporter Teddy! <3

I wrote so many variations of Quimp’s Gibberish in panel two. I think I settled on the silliest. ๐Ÿ™‚

Web site update: The Middle Age’s new web site is coming along. I did most of the work over the weekend but it still has a ways to go.

My favorite part of the new web site’s design is that the individual episodes are set to multiply – meaning they sit on the textured background like two transparencies on top of each other. (This is done with CSS – I’m happy to share the styling code if anyone’s equally obsessed with this sort of thing). This hides the hard edge around the rectangular JPG and lets the art (most of the time anyway), appear to float on the page. And it softens the colors on bright monitors. I created a glow in the background – something I did when designing the cover for The Art of Richard Thompson. This way, when the episodes lay on top of the background – they seem to glow a bit. I’m really happy with it.

And finally, after nearly four years, we have an Episode List. So if you want to jump to a particular episode, you can.

I still want to organize the episodes by chapter to make it easier for folks to re-read or catch up. Much to do!

Thank you all again for your kind support. <3

  1. So how long until we get another opportunity for our hero to retrieve his other boot??? Iโ€™ll be keeping a close eye to ensure it stays on the right foot, which is of course his left foot…

  2. Why won’t the the pages advance? I cannot advance the pages, and have not been able to for some time. Why? I have to go back to the first page, move up a couple of pages, and the click on the latest page, and even then, it doesn’t always work. What the Hell changed? My computer is the same.

    1. Hi. Are you seeing the new site design? The new host had pre-installed some very aggressive caching software and Iโ€™ve since disabled much of it. The main issue was that it encouraged browser-side caching so even if I update the site and links, some browsers will show the old content. If you clear your cache, you shouldnโ€™t see the issue again as Iโ€™ve disabled it that feature. Let me know if that doesnโ€™t work and Iโ€™ll see what else I can do. Iโ€™m really sorry about the errors. ๐Ÿ™
