schwarz bruder's blog


Body: is on its way back! Earlier this week, I got the domain working again (seems I missed a step on the host side), and tonight I've re-uploaded the first few strips - my ever-sporadic Halloween specials.

I'm currently in the process of updating all of my strips. By "updating" I mean that I'm fixing a lot of spriting errors that occurred over the first six-plus years of strips, when I had a horrible monitor that made every color value below #3C3C3C look black. (I really hated that monitor...) Basically, the outlines that look like several shades of gray, brown, green, or red will all now be the near-black #141414 I've been using consistently since the beginning of the wedding reception arc.

I'm looking at getting OR:TS back online sometime this weekend, while 2015 will be restored later. I've yet to start the sprite-fixing on that one. on its way back


So, yeah, I've got a new host for, as noted a little earlier on the OR LiveJournal:

I've reset's name servers, so by this time Monday night, should be pointing to the new site. If not, I'll have to work on that... but in the meantime, the link above is live.

For the moment, I haven't uploaded any strips yet, as I'm actually looking at possibly fixing some things up before uploading everything. Since I plan on being off on Thursday and Friday, though, I'll have a nice, long 4-day weekend to get that done.

In the meantime, I do have a button you can use here, if you want to replace the text link under "Our Friends"... it's basically just a reformatted version of my current main page's title image: down


... though, it's not because of anything I did.

It seems my webhost,, is having a bit of a seizure today. So, until they're back up, the strips (which, yeah, I know, nobody reads anymore... shut up already!) will be pretty much down.

Except for the most recent stuff, which I've gone ahead and posted on my Comcast space:

Hopefully, this'll prove to be a temporary problem.

Body: makes its return as an active domain. Brian transferred the domain over to me so that I could put it to good use. Well, better use than it was getting, anyway.

I'll be sure to cross-link over here as well, once I get a few updates to the main page done.
