Awesome - I have missed Artie!

 

Now that the blog is borked, I’m hoping you will release all of the Artie strips in printed form at some point?

Thanks! I've missed Artie as well. He's the voice I get to say things with that I probably otherwise wouldn't. ;)

 

I've thought about doing a printed collection (or two) of Artie strips, but I haven't looked into it lately. Publishing-on-demand would be the way to go. My concern would be the inevitable C&Ds from Atari. The book probably wouldn't have Atari in the title, but they're so litigious, they'd probably claim rights to every time I even mentioned one of their games, or Atari at all.

 

I'd need to talk to some people who deal with this sort of thing first, to see how much "fair use" I could get away with. As far as I'm concerned, it's all protected as parody. But I can't speak to the finer points of the law.

 

I'm still hoping the blogs get unborked someday. I know Albert wants to get them fixed, but there are a bunch of things that have to happen first.

Yay!  Artie!

 

glad that he is masking and hope that he is staying safe.

 

I managed to get the covid *despite* my ZPH facemask!

 

I want a refund!

Glad he's back!  Woo Hoo!!

 

Ya know, for some reason it actually took me a minute to realize he was wearing a mask...I wonder if you're the only guy (or one of a very few, I should think) who has video game consoles as comic characters?

Or at least a free "Rage Reset" T-shirt.

 

Hope you're doing okay!

When the blog software was updated, InVision removed the ability to use categories. So this completely destroyed any organization that had been done prior to the update (and prevented any such future organization). So there's no place in the sidebar anymore to click on "Comic Strips" "Movie Reviews" "Videogame Reviews" etc. This really hosed Darrell's blog, since he'd had it very neatly organized by project. He's hardly posted a blog entry since. I've decided to start blogging again because I've got some stuff I want to post, and this is the place I set up to do it. But I'm still frustrated that the lack of categories makes organizing things impossible. At some point, if it isn't fixed, I'm considering packing up my entire blog and moving elsewhere, and just use this as a pointer to it.

 

Also, I hate the way the blogs look now, forcing you to look at grids of space-wasting squares with mostly generic backgrounds. List views (which are used EVERYWHERE ELSE in these forums) aren't even an option. This isn't a criticism of Albert, either. This is stuff InVision removed.

Yeah, I was wondering if the mask would read, but I figured it's probably universal enough for people to recognize it.

 

There are a couple other strips out there which have had consoles in them. Penny Arcade being one. But Artie may be the only one where the characters are exclusively game consoles. (I could be completely wrong though.)

Agreed, the blogs got butchered by InVision. And some other parts too. :thumbsdown:

 

But I am very happy to have Artie back.

The mask is mostly there to protected other people.

 

I hope you are doing fine.

I'm doing ok, everyone.  thankfully, I had a very mild case.  feverish and achey for a few days, then it subsided into sore throat, congestion, headache and fatigue.

 

my quarantine ended two weekends ago and I called a doctor friend of mine to ask what that actually means?  was I free to ride the subway maskless?  Am I now immune and super powered?

 

he basically said that a) no one really knows but, b) it looks like infection does not necessarily prevent from getting reinfected and that c) the virus is mutating so even if one is immune, one might not be immune to a particular strain.  and since this is all over the place, it's worse than the flu.  So the recommendation was to continue to avoid potential exposure, meaning continue to spend most of my time at home.

 

I went into work once last week and may go in twice this week, but am probably going to keep it down at that level for the rest of the year.  and I still get tired really easily...I can sleep 12 hours a day without any problem so spending time up to do work or schoolwork has been a challenge.

 

but thank you, everyone, for your concern

 

and just remember...
