Feature Creep

Member Rated:

As far as I can tell, the site is all ready to go on the other server. In case anyone's interested, here's what's going to happen next:

1. At 8:00 PM EST I will disable comic and forum posting.

2. I will export the database on the current host.

3. I move the 40 meg exported database to the new host.

4. I will import that exported database into the new database server.

5. I will switch the stripcreator.com DNS to point to the new name servers.

6. I will post the IP of the new site here so that you guys can get to it while the DNS propagates and your respective ISPs figure out that Stripcreator has moved. This should take a maximum of 72 hours.

7. I will delete all of the e-mail I received from people telling me that they can't make comics and that I am an *******.

8. I will go try to finish Deus Ex while intermittently checking to make sure the site isn't crashing.

Prepare for excitement (for me)!

Heya Brad, this has to be costing you a pretty penny so I just sent $50 to you with paypal. Hope it others feel guilty now and will donate. If you are still allowing customized user comments, id like Pontifex Nasticus.

Also, www.arstechnica.com is planning to link to one of my comics as it fits a rant one of their editors posted a couple weeks ago. If you would rather that not happen let me know and I'll make other arrangements so it doesn't affect stripcreator. Otherwise that is a rather large userbase who is going to become of Stripcreator Monday December 17th.

On the evidence of their attempts at Scots so far, I think we can safely discount Kajun_vs_Dougans_Per actually being Scottish.

Did you really get nasty email from people? If you did, I think the right thing to do would be to share some of those email addresses and let us take care of things.

You're too busy handling all the techy stuff to deal with beatings, too. Let your enforcers handle the wet work.

I mostly got impatient people e-mailing me demanding to know when the site was going to be back up. I got angry e-mails when I spent a day and a half at my girlfriend's while the profile editor was broken.

I don't need any more killings in my name, but it's very nice of you to offer.

On a totally unrelated note, I'm thinking about designing a site called SiteCreator which lets you design a popular web site through an easy to use Javascript pull-down interface (which only works in IE 4 or greater). You finish the site, click save and then someone comes around and kicks you in the nuts, takes your wallet and tells you that your site sucks.

That's a good start, but you need more fire in your belly. Maybe you could don blue war paint and battle the English with sheep giblets hanging from your chin or something.

Not yet, but I'm real close. Still trying to decide if I want to start a new dark age, merge with an all-powerful computer or join the Illuminati and rule the world silently.

Brad - Save the game and do all three. They are all really cool in their own ways, and it doesn't take a huge amount of effort to do all three. All three sequences are a lot of fun too, so you wouldn't see all of the game if you missed any of them.

I merged with the computer AI and then I cheated and watched the other two endings using codes. Oh, and the fourth ending which was some sort of Deus Ex dance party.

It was a great game, but I was getting tired of getting shot at by robots and machine gun turrets and eaten by those weird mutant dog things and shot in the face with poisonous goo by those little lizard deals and bossed around by the Illuminati and all-powerful AI's and that evil Bob Page guy.

I think I may go back and play Max Payne again now.

I loved Deus Ex, but for a superior (in my opinion) game along the same lines, give System Shock 2 a go. It is really scary, has a fantastic plot, and is a huge amount of fun. It has some rivals, but depending on my mood it may be my favourite computer game of all time.

I thought System Shock 2 was an unworthy sequel to System Shock. It was annoyingly difficult and you basically just ran around afraid of zombies all the time, which was my complaint about Thief as well.

Deus Ex or Half Life are probably my favorite games, unless you want to get nostalgic and then it gets into the Space Quest and Monkey Island and Ultima 7.

Max Payne would have been a sub-par Tomb Raider type game with terrible, terrible cutscenes if it weren't for the excellent bullet time stuff.

Oh, System Shock 2 gets past those creepy mutants fairly early on. The robots and aliens are the really tough things to kill later on, especially the floating brain things which are actually psionic projections - you can kill them all you like, but until you find the real brain and destroy it, the dangerous floating bit will keep regenerating. The insane kamikaze protocol droids (or "rabid threepios" as I ended up calling them) are a challenge too, as are those massive military-grade robots, and... damn, that game has a lot of really nasty enemies...

I somewhat agree, though - System Shock was a better game in a lot of ways. It had a far better story, and a better variety of enemies, but the improved engine of the sequel made it much more frightening. Shodan is one of the greatest computer game villains ever, brilliant in both games. "Look at you human, panting and sweating as you run down my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?" Ah... the plot twists in the original System Shock are some of my favourite gaming moments... I must see if I can get it running again. Last time I tried the mouse refused to work.
