    I remember these. Cool.

    The site design, all in black and white, is excellent.

    I like strip #13! Good luck getting some more funny ideas!

    I notice the strips take quite a while to download. How have you optimised them?

    I encourage you to reduce them to 16 colours, without dithering/diffusion, and save them as 16-colour gif. That is, reduce them to 16 colour with an optimised octree set to "Nearest colour" and then save it as 16-colour gif.

    What graphics program do you use? Just wanting to help...

    If you're going to write them in english you should have someone who is a native english speaker proof read them for you. I just noticed 1 error in the first one (didn't read the others)

    "sit" is present tense, if you're talking past tense use "sat"

    Yes, I would recommend getting someone to proof-read them, as you create new ones.

    I'm sure some people here would do that for you.

    Don't create all new threads though you could email some of them to me if you want.

    If you need anyone to check out the grammar for you i'd be happy to. Cool site by the way, the design is great and some of the comic strips are really funny.

    Especially the one with the guy in the radiation suit cos he's scared of a monitor

    You should have one of the fellow propping his eyelids open with toothpicks while doing some late-night programming.

    Hasn't anyone here ever done that?

    Ahah! Why... yes of course! I love to waste saturday night with my computer, staying up late doing all sort of weird things =)

    This is when everything is quiet and hours flies...

    Again, thanks for your morale and offers! (and if you ever have an idea...)
