Has transferring files to another server ever worked well in the past?
None of the transfers that Wowio did ever worked completely, so it always had to go back to the Plat servers.

This was another attempt to get the site once and for all onto Wowio servers so new updates can be done and problems can be sorted out as well as some careful troubleshooting of the recent issues. But so far it seems to have failed again. Check the twitter feed and facebook sites for updates.

The site is not in a usable state right now.

wow, the reply was quick, but getting to where i could press the button was horrible.

Found the most perfect home ever. it's 2000 square feet, has a fireplace, a whirlpool tub, and a full unfinished basement (another 2000 sqft) but i have to use a VA loan so i can be cheap. but they don't loan against trailers…. :(

it'll be forever before we find another.

I'm impatient with the loading times on DD -_-

Back at work for me now… holidays over -_-

I shaved off my lovely two weeks growth of beard so I'd look smart again and decades younger… But actually got confused for a senior citizen by a train guard when he was checking my ticket yesterday lol!
I suppose I look like on old fogey in my Panama hat and button up shirt. I could've been travelling free!

I downloaded this app called “Ethereal Dialpad” for my Android phone. OMG it rocks! It's a musical instrument program, but the music you play on it is so beautiful and so easy to make. I've stopped listening to mp3s entirely and just taken to playing my own music instead, it's addictive, I'm even playing beautiful sounds as I type right now- one hand making music on the phone touchscreen, the other typing. Pure bliss!

Been getting into MTG. It's much funner to play than pokemon and the group I play with is so diverse. I was expecting a bunch of neckbeards(and i got them) but there's also peoples moms, kids(one kicked my ass) ._., dads, old guys, young guys, two other chicks, the list goes on.

No one loev pokemon anymore… u_u But I still collect them.

Got a horrible day coming up tomorrow.

Man I've been wanting to play a game of Pokemon cards for ages now. I still collect them because it feels nice to collect something, but the urge to actually use them is becoming unbearable.

The last good friend I had here I was going to slyly suggest playing a game for nostalgia's sake, figured it would be worth a shot since she and I were incredibly similar. But then she discovered I play video games, and apparently is morally against them. I seriously do not know what the fuck

Vidya games are evil. Duh. I never play them ever.

Just need all those ABCD comics back. :[

Ooh what do you have? :) Anything really unique? Pics?

Gengar primes are ridiculously popular right now if you want to get into online trading, like every single person in my trade thread asked for them. I've been trying to get my hands on the Shiny SH sets, the rotom set, and the southern Islands sets.

It'll certainly f*ck up the site and lead to Skool and I answering a bazillion complaints and queries…
They never seem to be able to get the time right during these things -_-

The site seems to be loading slightly faster at the moment, so I will take this opportunity to tell you guys my important news: PUPPIES!


My mom is fostering 10 two-week old Beagle/Blue heeler puppies(and their mum) and they're awesome(as puppies are).
The light brown one is Camille, the one underneath her is Leon, Maxime is the one with her head just sticking up at the bottom, and Danton is the dark brown one. And the one to the left with socks is Socks. The rest of them I can't tell apart in this photo. :\



In less happy news, I think exams are making me sick. Blargh. Hopefully I will feel all better after they're over.

I love technology. It's not only slow, but half the images are little red exes.

And my Attack of the Robofemoids comic has vanished into oblivion. Oh wait, some might consider that to be a good thing. ;)


Two days, two migraines. Two monsters that had the whole house spinning and every whisper being too loud.
It also doesn't help that it's been four weeks of winter and a snow storm every week. At least last weeks was a manageable 9 inches. I can shovel that.
Now it's freezing rain.

At least I'm not working outside this winter. I remember doing tank gunnery in this kind of weather and here I am in a nice warm dry house. Life is good.

Seriously? The site isn't even working yet and we've already got another giant ad on the front page?

So are these full-page ads something that's going to be there all the time now?

I'm glad I use adblock, otherwise this site would probably look like a hysterical mess. It's not so much that there are a lot of ads, it's the placement that gets me. Every page is so disorganized, and it feels like DD is trying really hard sometimes to be Myspace criteria 2006.

What kind of deck do you use? Any interesting cards on your end? DO YOU HAVE A GENGAR, I'LL TRADE YOU A ROTOM FOR A GENGAR :V

Gengar prime is definitely the most powerful one so far. I was a little shocked when I first read what it does and then quickly made a deck with it. The deck was Gengar/Nido and used nidequeens to heal and sent stuff to the lost zone. Pretty awesome except NO ONE PLAYS POKEMON/FOREVER ALONE.
———-
Actually speaking of forever alone, I'm glad 4chan no longer has that shithole /r9k/. They seriously believed women can't orgasm during sex, i mean how inept can you *be*? =__=

———
-I'm sending out my first online trade tommori…i hope everything goes well. It's kinda pissing me off though because besides him a lot of the offers tend to average me getting ripped off by 40-50%. Like They'll want 15$ worth of popular cards and offer me 7$ worth…um nty fag.

Sellers are even worse. Why would I pay you full price of a card I can find at a reputable online seller? And he even added on a dollar on some cards, like I don't have eyes.

2 years 3 days and I'm still here.

Yay.

As you can see, my being an idiot went away but don't worry it's bound to come back.

I still haven't made a comic in weeks but now am starting another project with Gunwallace.

They are something one of the bosses at Wowio has decided to capitalize on, yes. Apparently he won't be dissuaded.

that is kinda an idiot move. it is like setting angry africanized honey bees upon someone whose trapped outside in the rain. it never bodes well, and people who see that person being attack will not go near whoever's doing that because it is a rare person who loves being cold, wet, and repeatativly stung by mistakes of mankind

Unless they're outright saying ALL women can't have one, then they're completely retarded, which I would expect considering it's a conversation about sex on 4chan.
Obviously they're just stupid kids… but going the other way why is it that……in hentai ALL women orgasm, usually gushing vaginal fluid, spraying buckets of brestmilk, and crying out in pleasure- even if she was being packraped at the time by a bunch of crazed tentacle beasts?

I took a little detour from coloring (which was going damn slow 1-2 pages a day) and decided to do flats first… as a result I have only five pages left to flat for tonight and tomorrow actual coloring commences!

But yeah, I am getting sick of working in color.

*shakes head on the whole pokemon/card games discussion cause he'd rather waste money on comics* :)

I would love some Pokemon cards. I only ever had Yu gi oh cards. I didnt even play the TCG. I just liked the art.

In recent news I had to wear sunglasses all day due to the burning of my retina. Low winter sun + headache. I got called Neo all day. I then drew a comic explaining why I chose to wear them and that lead onto a discussion of webcomics and where I posted them. I kept mentioning that I hadn't got any on my profile. They kept asking why when I had so many drawn. I decided that I might as well post them. I also heard a guy mention that his former art teacher is a member here. Sounded a little weird to me.

Anyway I hate low winter sun.

Shiny new comic.

Good News: I now have my copy of the CS5 Web Premium. YAY!

bad news: I work up late for 11 o'clock class AGAIN! seriously! I can get up for a class that's an hour and half earlier, but I can't wake up for a one in the middle of the bloody day?!

oh and I still need five more players for Mafia. Please? *puppy dog eyes*
RAGE!
