Just in Case You Randomly Wondered
Do what you wish with it. I really don't care too much.

Other Elis Do Exist
"I love your comic ... I have a brother named Sam, and we both saw it and thought it is genius. :)"Holy crap. That's really weird. And really cool.

Now, my question is this:
WHAT SHOULD I DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?
Why is this a problem? Both domains are good. Here's the benefits of each:
@comicgenesis is easier to tell people about ("Comic Gen" is easier to misspell or mishear than "Comic Genesis") and... yeah.
Meanwhile, @comicgen is shorter.
Alternatively, I could buy a domain name. If I do that, I could go with either http://www.samandeli.com, http://www.sameliadv.com, or something totally different.
Anyone with an opinion, feel free to post it here. In other words, please help me decide, as I'm an indecisive moron!

Benefits and... the Opposite of Benefits
The time it takes to scan is now multiplied by like 5.
Since the paper I scan on doesn't crumple when you breathe on it, there are far less folds in the page, meaning far less data to scan. The end result is that a lossless PNG frame is roughly the same as a lossy JPEG frame. Additionally, I can store 2 new PNG frames at 150 DPI in the same space that 1 old PNG TIF frame takes at 75 DPI.
Additionally, since I have to manually crop each frame by hand now, if I accidentally left a bunch of white space, I can crop some of it out.
All the images will be exactly 288x432 from now on.
This is a very good thing, overall.
Changes to the Format
What does this mean? It means that I had to improvise.
What does that mean? It means that I made a sheet of paper with space for two frames, which I shall print out as needed. This will result in a few major changes:
- The frames will be somewhat taller than they used to be.
- The images will probably have standard dimensions, beginning with tomorrow's comic.
- The fold in the middle of the panels is going away.
So, yeah. Enjoy the change. Or don't. I'm fine either way.

Some Title For a Post
I shall try to get a buffer up so that this won't happen anymore.

Sweet Banana Teeth of Fire
Anyways, Friday's comic shall be late. It will, however, exist. That is, I swear on all sorts of things that I will post a comic for Friday sometime on Friday. It just might not be until 11:59 PM on Friday, but IT WILL HAPPEN!

Today's Comic Will Be Late But I Have a Cool Picture

Explanation of Awayness
Anyways, you may be asking why I missed Friday and Monday this time. The answer is quite simple: my parents are evil. They told me that I would be going to my grandma's house over the weekend. They neglected to tell me that I'd have no time on Friday to scan before we left or that I'd be gone all of Monday. Well, here I am telling you all that now that I know it all. So, I apologize. I'll not miss anything this week and I'm (still) working on establishing a buffer so that this won't happen any time soon. Hopefully I can get that buffer up soon. It shouldn't be too difficult with this massive epic saga thing again that I have.
Anyways, sorry about the missed comics. I'll work harder in the future. Or something.
