Oh No, Not Again - It Might Be Time to Migrate to Drupal 8

Submitted by C B Wright on

Short version: after finally updating all my Linux machines to the latest version of Ubuntu/KDE, I can no longer run my Drupal 7 test environments. This means I can no longer test any changes to Eviscerati.org, which makes me uncomfortable.

Drupal 8 runs fine though. Which means... ugh, I don't even want to say it. I may have to migrate the site from D7 to D8.

A Quick Update on Site Features

Submitted by C B Wright on

A week ago I had to disable the bookmark feature on this site because it was generating rampant SQL errors whenever anyone tried to use it. This was a result of updating the bookmark module to a more recent verion.

I will be going back to a previous (working) version. Unfortunately, when I re-install the bookmark module all previously assigned bookmarks will be gone. I apologize for this... I was hoping to preserve them, but in trying to fix the problem I wound up breaking it more.

A Few Important Changes

Submitted by C B Wright on

With the move over to the new site, there are a few significant changes that I want to bring to your attention:

  • the RSS feed for Ubersoft.net now displays the comic images -- by subscribing to the feed, you can view the comic without ever having to come here directly.
  • there are still ads on the site (via Project Wonderful), and information about what those ads are and how they work on the site can be found here.
  • I have adopted a Creative Commons license for my comics (and for the rest of my content) -- specifically, an Attribution-Noncommercial-ShareAlike license, which allows you to repost my comics, and even modify them, as long as it is not done for profit. This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, but couldn't due to Keenspot policy (which should not be interpreted as a criticism of Keenspot. Keenspot makes very few outright demands on its artists, and that one is perfectly understandible.) More information on the specifics of the copyright on this site can be found here.

Also, I'm pleased to announce (and some of you will be pleased to discover) that Kernel Panic will resume regular publication on Wednesdays, starting tomorrow. Happy 4th everyone.

Internet Explorer 6, Thou Art My Enemy

Submitted by C B Wright on

Internet Explorer version 6 is without a doubt a blight upon the Internet.

A pestilence, a putrescence, a profligate bastard-child of a lumbering giant that does not deserve the amount of time and effort I spend on trying to make it look right. A stellar example of base perfidy, it was designed to do nothing less than to break the World Wide Web.
