Time 2

Our intrepid artist has been quoted as saying that he will finish this story in two months upon the occasion of my death. Now I'm on the lookout for snipers. Thanks Ben.

Also, I have come to suspect that Ben agreed to illustrate Our Time in Eden specifically so he could draw that "wacky neighbour".

Edit: Anyone having trouble viewing the new template, go download Firefox, a far superior browser, much better for webcomics...and everything else. http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

He's right. Absolutely, that's why I agreed to this. Also, Gibson had mentioned something about "fortune and glory"...

I love the page, but does the template look broken to anyone else? The stuff in the upper right covers up part of the page so I couldn't read it without viewing the image in its own window... And I have a browser slightly larger than 1024 px wide.

I think they changed the template. Is it my mind that's playing tricks on me or are they watching Seinfeld on TV?

Best Kramer ever.

Also, this new template is hella intrusive. The old one was so great!

Awesome page.

Also, I'm not having any problems with the template... Internet Explorer maybe? dundunDUH!!!

I think the problem is with monitor size, not browser. This is what the page looks like in Firefox: http://www.serrynia.com/image/otielayout.jpg

I guess it's not a huge deal, but I agree with Gouda, the previous layout was so pretty that I'm sad to see a change to one that looks like it's broken.

Try expanding your browser to full screen. Unless I'm mistaken, that should fix it.

AHH! Love this, even more so that Kramer makes an appearance. Great work, guys.

I actually think the new template is very nice. It's simple, yes, but I think it's an improvement. And yes, Kramer's appearance only serves to make the comic even better.

I'd tell you to keep it up, but that's a waste of energy. Of course you will.

Possible template issues. General critique.
Hello Gibson and Ben,

I like your simple and sweet approach to your new template, but I think there may be a sizing issue or some css that possibly causes your page too zoom in on loading. Simply put it is fairly difficult to comfortably read your comic when your div tags for your navigation on the right hand side cover a good 5th of your viewing space and your title in the black fade crowds and makes that side of the page feel quite crowded and dense. At 1024x768 the page does not display properly (due to aforementioned issues) or even at 1152x864. This is using latest Firefox 3.5.5 on My mac and even viewing on pc. The only time the template works as it should is if your resolution is 1280X1024 and up. When the screen reolution is lower or closer to newer standard 1024x768, you must either re-size across two screens (dual screen only) or zoom out at least twice to properly display. However, the comic tends to get gaussian blurred at that point and somewhat noisy to look at. Still legible and viewable but, uncomfortable.

Did you happen to build the whole site on a wide screen? That might be the case if you did not optimize it for 1024x768.

Thanks guys and I hope you can resolve the issue with little extra effort.

I had the same problems mentioned above with firefox at 1024. Its easy to fix though. Go to the view menu and zoom out a couple of times. The result looks more as I think it was intended, and is very easy to read.

wow. amazing. i love the new site design btw. oh yes, and lol kramer.

Steele (Guest), 17 Nov 2009 Reply to this comment!

I like the site design, though i'm forced to wonder who in the high holy heck uses a TYPEWRITER these days. I'd speculate that maybe the "modern" portion of this story is actually a flashback from like 50 years ago, but between the Seinfeld ref and the cover art of our boy holding a CD player... I find that unlikely. It could conceivably be about 10 years ago, when computers were hitting their stride and maybe someone who was totally broke would still be using a typewriter... Hmm

Personally, I enjoy writing using a typewriter. I find that when I write using my computer I end up distracted by all the other things I could be doing on there that I lose track of my writing.

I second Klowd on the use of a typewriter vs. a computer
