Read about this webcomicsnation site recently (care of sirive talking about jessica's site ) which I like the idea of. It’s always been a problematic area in terms of pay per view with web comic in my opinion. I think it’s great to have things for free but at the same time, even at the most basic level, it takes time and money to put out quality work. In an ideal world you could do this people would subscribe and it would at least pay for your running costs (it’s $99US per year) If I was to have something like this it would be like .50c a month or a couple of dollars a year…does that sound fair? Heres some well known peoples sites James Kochalka, roger langridge

I often have a hard time undertanding websites until I see somehting I like on them. Like myspcae for instance I was scratching my head as to why everyone was going nuts over it when theres lots of other things like it. But then I came across Joe Matt's myspace page and it made sense to me... Anyway I got invited to create one ages ago but have only recenlty been trying to update to any kind of working sense...Any one else got one that's not on my friends list already?
A friend recently sent me a link to a design he had entered on a site called threadless.com , I hadn’t given the site much thought until I went to an honours presentation about t-shirt design and then another friend Leigh showed me his design he was submitting to threadless.com. I went back and checked the site out and it has heaps of cool designs, I really like the idea behind it all.
Started thinking about 2-D game design last night as I was trying to go to sleep. As I’ve had a little trouble getting to sleep this week I decided to get up and hit the net for info on programs that are out there. There are quite a few, but it looks as if you have to learn a bit of C++ programming language to get anywhere. I would really like to do some interactive art/games though…Maybe I should do stuff in flash, but I don’t think you can get flash to respond to keyboard buttons[?] It go me thinking of my old Commodore 64. So many cool games (even though they were kinda dodgy and super pixalated) I looked up a few sites and remembered that you can download emulators for lots of the games. I haven’t had luck with my mac at home, so maybe I’ll have to try it on a PC at school. Games I remember I played: Amazing spiderman Boulderdash Barbarian Bionic commando Donald duck Human race Knight games Monty on the run Rampage To name a few… There is this one game I’d love t
The new issue of 'isnot' magazine is out! And i am pleased to infomr you that i have three drawings in this issue. I was in a cafe in melbourne a couple of months ago and i saw the last issu of isnot and it struck me that my concept drawings I was doing at the time would fit perfectly into the dynamic layout of Isnot (plus the whole two colour thing would make it look even better)
Theres some sort of australian comics thing on at the state library soon...Ful info bellow Heroes & Villains: Australian Comics and their Creators 20 October 2006-25 February 2007 Who was the Lone Avenger?

I’ve been wanting to figure out RSS feeds lately. I’m finding a lot of information about how great and simple it is but can’t seem to find any links to actual sites that help you set it up, eg, click here insert this etc. Any help? I’m guessing that you have some sort of page where all the feeds go… Also thought this link to Seth comic was great. Make sure you check out this part too
For IF's theme Quiet. I've been reading a book by Timothy Good called 'Need to know' which has blown my mind to put it mildly. The book contains irrefutable evidence of the existence of Unidentified Objects through official documents, photos, and hundreds of witness statements (most of which are by military or government personnel around the world) So it begs the question why do governments keep quiet on this issue?
