State Of My Comics, End of October, 2009

Submitted by C B Wright on

It was mid-November last year that the Lovely Economy Of Wonder And Rapturous Joy (LEOWARJ) forced me to abandon my setup at SliceHost and announce that my site was going dark due to lack of funds. At that time you, my readers, rallied to my cause and donated money -- enough to keep Ubersoft.net up and running for a little while, long enough for one of you kind readers to offer to host the site until it could get back on its feet.

Because you were all willing to do that, Ubersoft.net did not go dark, and I was able to continue publishing -- but my publishing schedule was shot all to Hell due to various concerns like getting a job, getting money, paying bills, moving to a new state, and various other things that made comics-related activities difficult.

One year later things are much better... but they're still not what they were. Here's an update.

I'm Not Dead -- Just Really, Really Busy

Submitted by C B Wright on

I know, I know. I have a storyline to wrap up and a lot of other things to do with the site. Unfortunately my paying gig has been in "crunch time" for the last month and a half and the last week or two in particular has been very demanding of my time and energy, so pretty much everything else has fallen by the wayside.

But I am planning a rally and return. Maybe as soon as tomorrow. I'm just trying to get my jellified brain to coalesce into something that resembles the semifirm grey matter it used to be. Also, in a semi-related announcement, this November it will once again be time for National Novel Writing Month.

Submitted by C B Wright on

If you're interested in viewing the live broadcast of the episode of FLOSS I'm going to be participating in, head on over to TWiT Live around 4:30pm EST, 1:30pm PST... I guess around 8:30pm GMT (if we're still factoring in daylight savings time over there) or 9:30pm GMT (if we're not). If you're not interested in the video feed then the podcast will released sometime on Saturday over here.

So, as previously mentioned on the site...

I'm going to be participating in the FLOSS Weekly Podcast on Wednesday the 19th. FLOSS stands for "Free Libre Open Source Software," and each week hosts Randal Schwartz and Leo Laporte interview people involved in the development of Free and Open Source Software.

Well, almost each week. This week they've decided to do something a little different and interview some webcartoonists instead.
