RE: Busted Images

Hey guys! We're looking into the problem, I think it's on our host's side. Getting it resolved as quickly as possible, thanks for the heads up! If you can give us a rundown of what isn't working for you and what browser you're using, that would be great. Thanks!

Rook was pretty miserable the past few days - I guess fur will do that to you during a heatwave. He was trying everything to cool off, and Yuko was wetting him down from time to time, but we finally tossed him into the tub and hosed him down. Rook hated it, but he was cheery for the rest of the day. Actually, towards the end of yesterday he finally discovered a perch next to our newly installed A/C unit (thanks George!), and he was quite content. 

Today the weather has finally cooled off, so we're all relaxing and getting back to 100% work capacity. Any unfulfilled orders are being shipped out today - most of you should be getting tracking numbers, so keep an eye out. ;) 

Lastly I've read a couple of books, recently! Elizabeth Peter's Crocodile on the Sandbank, Mariko Koike's Cat in the Coffin, and Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. Crocodile is especially cute and features Victorian-era lady adventurer Amelia Peabody in Egypt. Cat in the Coffin is a quick read, but will by the end have you in a grip of vague dread. The winner of the three, though, is Kavalier & Clay, which I finished about ten minutes ago - WWII, the Golden Age of comics, Fredric Wertham and the trials of two young men tumbling through it all. The Chicago Tribune has it right - "with sentences so cozy they'll wrap you up and kiss you goodnight." Couldn't recommend it more, especially if you like comics!

We'll be at Connecticon this weekend! Come say hey! :D We should have some new stuff with us, in addition to our usual tees and prints.

Comment by jules (not verified) Fri, 07/09/2010 - 05:18

Viewing the comic on the latest version of Firefox gets me the same results as attempting to view the comic on IE and Google Chrome:

I see the title of the comic, and the blog entry/title (and user comments), but not the actual image of the comic itself. I tried to go back a few entries in the comic archives, but none of the previous comics are showing up either. :(

The problem for me right now is that I can't see any of the comic images, not only the most recent but not any of the older comics either. I'm using Mozilla/5.0 on Intel Mac OS X 10.5.
Hope you guys fix it soon, it's sad when technological problems get in the way of your wonderful comic!

Comment by Terri (not verified) Fri, 07/09/2010 - 12:17

Those books are so great! And there's like a million of them. If you like the adventures that Amelia and Emerson get into, continue to follow the books. Elizabeth Peters is still alive and kicking out books all the time, so it's good. She's got a doctorate in like Ancient Egyptian studies or something like that, so she knows what she's talking about. But, yeah, good stuff.

I'm having problems with seeing the comic too (latest version of firefox on Windows XP), but since you're working on it, I'll also leave a comment on your cooked cat lol

My cat is a semi-long hair (she's technically a short hair, but she's very very shaggy,) so she gets really hot in the summer. Probably not as hot as your boy, but hot enough to have her shaved - and she looks really silly afterwards!!

Using firefox(I don`t remember which version, fairly sure it`s the latest as it was downloaded recently) I can`t see the comic.

Upon looking at the page source info the image isn`t not showing up, there`s no code for the actual image. Maybe there`s a problem involving the CSS, though everything else about the page is working so maybe not...

No comic displayed but all else is ok. Was ok yesterday.

I'm going to agree that it must be a locale/host thing - since all browser testing (IE/FF/Opera/Chrome) gives the same result.

The heat is absolutely UNBEARABLE. My bedroom has an air conditioner, though, so I've been alright.

so hawt! - Hydration

Comment by Jingseng (not verified) Fri, 07/09/2010 - 20:57

TLDR - try putting some ice cubes in his water supply? =)

You've probably read in books and stuff how cats can have a hard time hydrating, since they are used to DRINKING THE BLOOD OF THEIR FALLEN PREY and so forth. And by and large, dry kibbles don't bleed.

So I got one of those water fountain type thingies. My bombay/aby loves it, but that might be because she grew up around one.

Anyway, back when I was still living in DC, I was living ground floor, facing an interior courtyard, surrounded on all four sides by at least 13 stories. In short, there was no air flow. At all. If i didn't have the ac running, the temp hit 90 within the hour. Even when it was snowing outside.

So lo and behold, on a super hot DC summer, my ac broke. For a bout a month -_-. Lisa, my cat (same bombay, abynissian, domestic mix that rook looks like) wasn't very happy, and seemed to like it every time i opened the fridge to get some ice (note: i've heard stories of kittens hopping in when no one is looking and getting stuck inside!)... so i added some ice to her water fountain. It seemed to improve her mood a bit, and she drank more frequently as well.
