The story of a befuddled amnesiac running a gift store for the magically inclined, and the people who may or may not know his true identity

I redid the navigation arrows a few days ago. I had saved them as a JPG file, and now I know JPGs don't allow for transparency, so I resaved as GIFs and (weee!) now I have transparent backgrounds. I live I learn. I slowly lose my fear of messing with webby stuff

Holiday fun

Over the holidays I've still been playing with the coloring. Comparing the color versions and the B&W versions, the color ones look pretty spiffy. I'm still waiting for an answer about my submitted "pog" advert. It is the holidays so I expect everything to take longer.

I've been playing with Adorable Desolation 's html and it was down all day yesterday (Dec 16th) I got cocky about knowing stuff. But I fixed it! and now it's up and working, in a few days I will play with more tweaking. Bwa-ha-haaaa !

are things better in color?

whoops- meant to post this in Adorable Desolation so here it is.

I'm experimenting with adding color to the comic. I'm starting to figure out gimp. The worst is deciding on permanent hair colors for all the characters. The only hair color actually commented on in the comic is Sterling's. He's described as a "big blond" and blond covers a lot of shades, just ask Sweeney Todd, he sang a song about all the shades of blond!

problem with adorable desolation fixed

I did it! I went to the help forum and saw the problem, then I fixed the problem!!
woo-hoo! The reason this is exciting to me is that is my first success at html coding.
Any way the comic is now visible in both fire fox and internet explorer- any other browser takes-ya chances

adorable desolation

I'm not sure what's going on. The comic genesis "Adorable Desolation" site is up but I can only see it from one computer. I need to hunt down the problem. Sigh
