Four years later, and the forum is finally back online!

Thanks to the gracious help of Hand, a long-time fan of the comic, who offered to host the forums and did most of the work getting it all set up, you can finally (hopefully) read and post again.

Luckily I had a more or less current backup, so all the users and posts should be in place!

There may be lingering bugs, and if we notice them, we'll do our best to fix them. Not sure if anyone else even still comes here though!

(As for the comic, my work on that isn't going so well; real life has me busy and when I do find free time, I find so many other things to do. I'm still planning to continue though, and I do think about it often.)

With the forum up and running again, does that mean that the story section will be updated to match the pages that have been posted while it was down?

Good question. Is it worth it? I don't really expect a lot of traffic or discussions ...

Edit: Posted a sticky for 1002-1019 collectively :) Now I feel pretty bad that it's only been 18 comics in so many years ;>

Addition to the status update:

I really want to get comics 1020+1021 up by November 25 (don't expect anything great, those are just the two comics that finish this little story arc, before a "Three weeks later" box). It's been difficult since I don't much like drawing at the moment, I don't have a workspace anymore to easily sit down and draw, and I currently don't have a working scanner/printer, and the ancient version of photoshop that I'm intimately familiar with (version 3, no, not CS3 ... version 3 from 1994/95) finally doesn't run anymore on my current hardware. (Doesn't matter much -- the last few comics have been done on CS5 already anyway, it's just a little slower as it's quite a bit different. So glad I bit the bullet and bought it a few years ago though.)

Ideally, after those 2 comics, I would switch to digital art (all comics until now have been completely on paper, except the Spiky's World spinoff which is sketched on paper but finished digitally). I do have a small, old, cheap tablet, but I'm really not good at using that ;).

Or perhaps I might consider finding an artist to work with; I'm very much a "want to do everything myself" person though, and, well, I can't exactly affort to hire somebody.

Anyway. I hope that the forum being live again gives me an extra kick in the behind so I can at least finish the current small arc this year ...
