Thank you!

I just wanted to thank you all for your patience, and for helping to spot bugs, in the midst of the server move.

The move came unexpectedly, after 8 years at my old host, and caught me a bit off-guard...but thankfully, it's all working out on the new cloud-based host. And slowly but surely, we're tackling the bugs you guys are spotting.

Strips-delivered-by-email, and the store in general, should both be back up and running within the next few weeks, and any remaining site hiccups should be wrangled by then.

In the meantime, thank you all!

Movin' House!

I wanted to let you all know that the Sheldon and Drive sites have moved to new servers.

What does this mean for you? Hopefully nothing, in terms of reading and enjoying the sites. All the archived strips will have the same links, the navigation and site design are all staying the same, and the strips themselves aren't changing in any way.

There will two noticeable changes, though:

1.) The forum system is changing to Disqus, as the old one was A.) Specific to the coding on the old host, and B.) Getting a bit creaky around the edges. I've really liked the look and feel of Disqus' real-time conversations, so I'm excited to use it. Feel free to check out how it works, here, by following along with the gray text boxes that pop up.

2.) The coding for the Sheldon and Drive stores was very specific to the old host, so I'm probably going to move them to Shopify or a similar service. But in the meantime, the stores are offline for everything except Sheldon Original Art purchases.

3.) The RSS feed will be changing (so please grab the new feed!)

4.) For those getting the strip via e-mail: There is the possibility of hiccups for the first week or so, as we get things ironed out. Please forgive any missed strips, ahead of time!

In fact, as with any server move, there will undoubtedly be a half-dozen things that break during the first week. If you spot anything, do let me know below, via Disqus, or e-mail me direct, at dave@davekellett.com.
