5/30/06 - Tuesday: "Haha"

I did an update to the latest Lightfire comic to add in the sound effects for blowing up the tank. I sort of forgot it when I was making the comic. Anyway, it's fixed now so I'm happy.

 

5/30/06 - Tuesday: "Hit Counter"

My brother e-mailed me and told me I should add a hit counter... so I added a hit counter to the right side of this home page (under the advertisement and donate button). Personally, I don't like them much, they add to clutter and aren't very accurate (because I probably visit my site 10 or so times per day, which the counter doesn't take into consideration). They are also bad at counting unique visitors, since just opening the page counts as a "hit" and one person can keep "hitting" the page.

Meh, oh well, you want it, you got it. Now all you numbers-people can have a field day. Enjoy it while it lasts. :P

P.S. - I already made a post or two about site visitors in my blog.

 

5/29/06 - Monday: "In a Search"

I was quite thrilled when I found out I'm number one on the list on MSN Search for "sci-fi webcomics":

Unfortunately, I still don't seem to be showing up on Google. Of course, I changed the title of my page since then, so hopefully it'll at least stick on MSN.

 

5/28/06 - Sunday: "Planet Ardan"

I've added planet Ardan to the Planets page.

 

5/26/06 - Friday: "For the Look"

Okay, so I don't have a new comic to show you yet. Sorry about that. However, what I did do is fix up the website so it looks both cleaner and cooler (or hotter even). I've got a new logo at the start of the page, and hopefully fixed the image menu so it will preload the images (that will help keep the menu from being laggy when you move your mouse over it). If you notice problems with it, you can drop me an e-mail.

 

5/24/06 - Wednesday: "Big Update"

The latest update to the website took quite a while to do. I changed the menu to images so they don't look so plain, and also moved the Fact Sheets menu to under the main menu. It helped clean up some of the side-bar space, which is something I planned to do for a while.

Also, if you see a "Go to Top" link, click it to go to the top of the webpage (or as close to the top as I could get it to go anyway - if you'd like to give me some tips on how to get it to go all the way to the top, or other tips etc., drop me a line at my e-mail.)

Next thing I have to fix is my fonts... but it will probably be a while before I get around to that. And of course I need to keep working on comics.

Make sure you check out the latest Gamer's Corner webcomic, and hopefully you didn't miss the newest Lightfire webcomic - since it's near the top of this page!

 

5/18/06 - Thursday: "Gamer's Corner"

I worked on and completed a Counterstrike: Source based webcomic, since that's the game I'm playing the most recently. I thought it turned out so nicely, that I'd put it on the main web page (edit: recently moved from main page to Gamer's Corner - the new name for what was previously "Other Webcomics"). Also, if you didn't notice, the title of the game-based webcomics will now be titled "Lightfire: Gamer's Corner" until further notice. It was the best name I could come up with this late at night. If I change my mind I'll let ya'll know, but I think it could stick.

By the way, the Sci-Fi webcomics based on my original sci-fi story are still called just plain "Lightfire."

I've also got a couple 256x256 CS:S-ready spray images if you're interested. Just right click and "Save Picture As", then load with CS:S options as you would any other spray image.

 

 

5/7/06 - Sunday: "Planetary Facts"

I've finished my first entry for the Planets in the Fact Sheets area, in case you were wondering, it's about Treppia.

 

5/6/06 - Saturday: "Supersize Me"

The latest webcomic is about double the size of most my webcomics so far. Hopefully it's also double the fun to read!
