What are the haps my friends

June 25th, 2007: Okay so my old host told me that Dinosaur Comics was TOO AWESOME (or "too much of a load", who can say?) and that I had to find new hosting stat. They said that they would kick me off in one week! That was a bit unkind BUT it was the kick that I needed to move to the very excellent Dumbrella Hosting. Besides, the old guys were not good hosts. When your site was down and you emailed them about it, they would email you back hours or days, after the problem was solved, and tell you that there was no problem and that you should reboot your computer. Even when you wrote in your email to look at when it was sent! That is not technical support, geohost dot ca

Because of the short notice, there are some things on this new site that aren't working yet - rest assured we are on it! In a few days I'll be asking you to let me know if you come across anything broken, but not just yet, because I don't want to be buried in emails. Specifically, there is an easter egg that we haven't managed to program in yet. It won't be forgotten!

Because of the way DNS works, you may find yourself flipping between the old site and the new over the next few days, but it should stabilize pretty soon.

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: hippocleides doesn't care!
