"mt break"

Tuesday - October 9, 2001

[Piro] - 00:31:00 - [link here]

Ok, now THIS will be a short rant. ^_^ I'll flesh it out at lunch tomorrow.

Did a lot this weekend, just one of those things wasn't the comic. Was never able to quite get in the mood. Sorry. I did have fun doing the full color art for the Megatokyo Stein, it came out pretty good IMHO. It just took a little longer to finish than i thought it would.

It seems that most of my creative ability left me after that. Happens, i guess. Hopefully some of the new art here will tide everyone over till wednesday. :) Hope you like the drawing of Saeko-chan and Tomu-san. Warmth is a good story, one i am looking forward to doing someday. It's more of the shoujo love-drama that MT sometimes wants to be - in fact, i've transposed some ideas from 'warmth' into MT here and there - but i dont think it would have QUITE the broad appeal that MT has. Even so, most of you might enjoy it - its a little different. :)

more tomorrow - time for bed now.

"megatokyo 2.0"

Monday - September 17, 2001

Tonight, MegaTokyo launched it's new backend, version 2.0!

I've spent the better part of last month doing data entry into this beast, over 160 strips, and 200 rants had to be manually re-entered due to the way we used to store the data, (it wasn't pretty).

I had thought about writing a script to do the conversation for me, but going back over the old data gave me a chance to clean it up, fix some broken links, incorrect dates, etc.

The new backend is running off the defacto standard combination of apache with mysql & php. It's also about 20x faster then the previous backend. Why not give it a few clicks and see if you notice a difference?

ah, I love speed.

It's nice to finally get this system finished, and in production. After the events of last week, it feels good to be creating again. There just isn't a substitute for the feeling of bringing something new to people, in any form.

Well, having done that, I'm going on vacation. In the morning I'll be heading out to somewhere in the mountain ranges of Colorado, so I'm told.
