Comics [Jan. 28th, 2004|03:55 pm]
[music |Portishead - 2 All Mine]

There are several comic strips that I follow:

A little while back, I discovered a new one when browsing my Friends Of Friends page - UnEmployed by Matt Steen. About a week ago, the feed threw up a message saying they (Full Tilt Features, the people behind it all) were stopping their RSS feeds, and suggested people try out a 2 week trial of their pay for service.

I decided to give it a whirl, and signed up. As part of the service, you can get a page with a random comic once an hour (for use as a desktop background), or a page with all the comics (you like) on it, or one with all the new ones for that day. I discovered that I did like quite a few of the other comics they have, so I'll certainly be paying them the $10 they want for 6 months worth of access. I think it's really good value, given the number of their comics I'm keen on.

Yesterday, I got an email from one of the people behind Full Tilt Features, asking me what I thought of their service, which was a pleasant surprise. I responded with a few ideas (related to ease of viewing all the comics from previous days). Got a near instantaneous response saying they liked the idea, and would work on it. These guys rock :)
