The Winner of the T Shirt Contest was BaneLilith! Now that it has been officially sent out, I feel okay sending out the announcement.

Have a great weekend everyone, take care!

(Quick note today, gotta run!)

It's always good to be dressed in a spare suit for when your tinfoil suit just falls apart every time you move. That's a back up plan, that's what that is!

Bah, I guess I'll just be making my own TOGM t-shirt then...

EDIT: Also, you should stop your layout from being all wonky.

@bbedlam - Well, I think he could use a suit that isn't ripped... ;) He's stuck with the suit that he put the tin foil over in the first place ;)

@MarshmallowGherkin - Fair enough :)

As for the site, basically what happened was that Zeph coded a site, and then I went "Oh, but I want this, this, this and that...." and tried to add it. And broke a bunch of stuff... So the footer's messed up, the project wonderful ad goes into the banner in firefox, the arrow boxes were meant to go on other side of the drop down box (I didn't leave that train wreck the way that it looked when I initially tried to do it, but it is my ideal..) and ... probably other stuff too. I don't know... All I can say is that Zeph knows about it, and I'm under the impression that he will help me fix it when he has time...

Figures Kyo built the html-less layout maker after Zeph put in a bunch of work and I made a mess of everything.

PLEASE get Zeph to change the comments box

if you guys are trying to imitate the Ratfist layout... it's not really working.
Maybe it's just my claustrophobia talking but it seems unnecessarily confined.
Magravan edit delete reply
@MatthewJA - Is that better?

@the_brigand - I have no idea what Ratfist is. I think that the comments are limited in length because he was concerned about the side bar.

If you mean the site in general, it's because it is properly defined limitations now. That's more to ensure that the site didn't implode for anyone under a certain monitor resolution...

I think Robert is still in control, but is letting him run because a rogue agent might just succeed at finding the phantom.

I think Skrael used Mags as a model for last panel.
Skrael (I'm the artist)
Lol .. nope .. does it look like him? I was trying to draw a "derp" face, so he might be offended :P

lol derp face

Well it is a terrible idea, and I still wanna see how Robert controls the zombies, kinda like a pacemaker?

robert is TOTALLY screwing with him. not only that, but robert is laughing while he does it. i hope alex is happy that robert is smiling at his expense.

Morning! Though you have never heard from me ('tis rare that I comment), I am a loyal follower, and I wish to make one small correction to today's comic. In panel two, you spell 'won't' without an apostrophe. This is most likely a typo, but I thought that you should know.
Thank you very much for the ongoing entertainment of the comic!

@ grammer: or alex isn't pronouncing it right due to nervousness? or it's a 3 thing, or i dunno. it's prolly a typo, but i didn't notice it till you pointed it out.
D_Man edit delete reply
I think for him to prove that his hesitation is not Robert controlling him, he should do some sort of selfish act.

Also the comment boxes hurt my eyes as well. I think the probem is the very white background then reading lightly coloured/shaded writing in a black box.

oddly enough the comments don't bother my eyes at all. then again i spent years on gaia with their PITCH WHITE FORUM BACKGROUND

Indeed, I have no trouble with the comment box either....

@T.Gatto - That is certainly a good theory :)

@moizmad - Was the lack of any signs of intelligence the giveaway? :P

@Skrael - I think she's just saying I look dumb :P

@Asheswillfall - Pacemakers are used to control people? We're going to have an uprising of heart attack victim drones to take over soon, aren't we? :)

@model S - Well, whatever keeps him out of the trophy case :D

@Grammar Defender - You know, that's an error I seem to make often. Damn you contractons and basic grammar!

@model S - Not even a typo.. A genuine screw up ;)

@D_Man - Yeah, I like the site design better than the last one, but I find it harder to look at...

@model S - Well, that might have something to do with it.

@Muchacho NL - I think that if you looked at it repeatedly, or for a long period of time, you'd find that your eyes are having to struggle to adjust.
asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
@ Mag that's the first thing that came to mind, but they do control the person's heart and does jolt them if it gets off beat or stops :P
Magravan edit delete reply
I guess that would be a pretty effective way of controlling people... "Don't wanna do it?" ZAAAAAP! "How about now?!"

For me the only anoyong thing about hth enew layout is the black square with white text on a white background. it is just too bright in the wrong places and brings back horrible memories of working on a dumb terminal with a light behind it.
