Where have I gone? And what are these AD looking things?

Well lets start off by asking where the hell am I.

Ok so where the hell am I? I'm in Ithaca N.Y. Why? I'm here to help take care of my uncle. He's a little sickley, needs to take lots of medicine. But he doesn't always take all of them when he should, or sometimes not at all. And this causes him to wind up in the hospital (recently with a hearbeat of 32bpm). Now you might ask "Why the hell has he been living on his own all this time!?" And I would say "He has not". He has had a women "friend" (he's not healty enough for anything else beyond frienship) has been living with him. "Well what the hell happened to her!" you might yell. And I would smack you force you to sit down tie you to your chair and continue to explain to you what's going on. This woman isn't exactly the picture of perfection. She has an arrest history for drugs and is permanantly on disability from being hit by a car (I cover my mouth look to the side slyly and giggle silently to myself). And on top of that she's been permanently banned from the trailor park where my uncle lives and since she's been living with/mooching off my uncle for 2 years and has been racking up the violations in the park they were threatening to evict him if she didn't move out. So me and my mom came down here and got her ass out to a homless shelter thing and now I'm living with my uncle to make sure that he's taking his meds until we can get him into an assisted living home. SO that's where I am. And right now I have my computer down here and set up as well as my TV. Now here's the problem, my uncle has cable but no internet. Here's my temporary solution, some of his neighbors have unprotected wireless internet and my mom's mini laptop has wi-fi so for the time being I'm doing internet stuff with that(I'm writing this on my computer and transfering it to mini laptop via flash drive). And finally we plan on getting us set up with internet through his cable company(Hopefully we'll get that set up QUICKLY so that I can do this without leaching wi-fi anymore).

Ok now lets get onto what the hell this ad box looking thing is. I recently joined a comic creators group called Plot Holes Collective. It's a small comunity of web comic creators that have banned together in order to help each other out. I'm still figureing out the extent of what well be doing but the first thing we've done to help eachother out and to unify as a group is we have created ads for out comics and posted a special code on out pages that allow us to show off eachother's ads on our pages. So why don't you go on and click that and check out some of those awesome comics... and if you clicked on one of those links on another plot holes page WELCOME! and don't worry I'll be updating again soon.

Invisible isn't a color!

Well in order to make the page look a little cleaner I've decided that it'd be best to use the overview version of the front page. And I've added the tumblr feed beneath the Cbox.

But one problem I seem to be having is for some reason in Firefox the tables I'm using to make my page more organized are clear and I don't know why. In Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer it looks fine. I mean come on. INTERNET EXPLORER? Working better than FIREFOX? What the fuck is going on here? Seriously what am I doing wrong? Is there something else I could be using to organize my page without these problems?

Thinking... thinking... thinking...

I'm wondering if I should stick with the site the way it is or come up with an alternate setup... like maybe I should adjust the normal comic setting and figure out if there's any way to embed my tumblr into the page then just switch over to using my tumblr as my blog... hmmm... decisions decisions.

On and On and On

I'm still working on the code. I've put the blog entries into a table so that they don't just stretch out to the edge of the page. I think this keeps the page looking a little more organized. But I'm debating weather I should have the comic in the table too to keep it looking uniform.

I've also added my Cbox into the table next to the blog so that people can chat. It's also on my Drunk duck page so if you're chatting here you're also chatting there.

 

Of course I'm still trying to figure out how I can if at all have my latest authors notes on the front page.

Stability

Ok so I think I've got everything working properly. The comic shows up on the front page, as do the most recent blog posts. And I've added a random button on the front page that'll take you to random pages. ISN'T THAT NEAT!? Well I like it. And I hope everyone else does too.

 

And if you're looking for the authors comments for the comics all you have to do is click on the comic and it'll take you to the normal comics page. Where you can read my thoughts on the individual comic and leave your own comments... not that you seem to want to... awkward. 

 

Blah blah... enjoy the site... blah... I'm going to bed.
