Major Site Updates [13 Dec 2005|04:02am]

[ mood | incredibly devious ]

I am pleased to report that the site transition to bookofroot.com is now completed. I wanted to let everyone know that they can safely update their bookmarks and stuff. Also, Ash and I cleaned up the site a bit more, and I tweaked out a few technical things on the server.

For starters, the RSS feeds are now accessible for the site off the main page. To get the RSS feed for the comic/news, use http://www.bookofroot.com/rss/, and to get the RSS feed for the community livejournal site, use http://community.bookofroot.com/rss/. If you are in firefox, you'll now notice the little orange RSS box comes up in the bottom right corner of your browser. Clicking it will allow you to live bookmark the site, so you can check for changes without actually visiting the site. Nifty hm?

I also wanted to plug the software which runs the site - iStrip, which is open source (free). This comic updater system is quite nice and I highly recommend it. Also, it uses a nice templating system which allows us to customize the site's layout and function easily. Kudos to Gordon McVey for writing it.

Random Updates [12 Dec 2005|07:01pm]

[ mood | devious ]

ZOMG. We have a new home. I feel all official and stuff.

Crap. I guess this means I actually have to update earlier, or something..

P.S.: I'm totally not dead, yet. I'll be doing random stuff about the site and adding comics and whatnot. Forum? Perhaps. I also have something incredibly devious up my sleeves (read: an actual plotline, woo!).

NEW LINUXGUY DOM: Issue #2 [11 Dec 2005|11:18pm]

Kids, its that wonderful time of year. Christmas, missiles, toes, and all the reindeer you can eat without a spoon or rocket launcher.

In other news, Ashley won't do the comic this week. HA! Therefore, I, Dom, have taken matters into my own hands. I unleash upon the world my perversion of all that is sacred and holy in webcomics: LinuxGuyDom episode 2.

You might enjoy it.

Also, two things for our more technical readers. There are RSS feeds available both for this (and any) livejournal account (which we use for news) and for the book of root site itself. The one for the actual book of root website can be found at: http://bookofroot.ig3.net/index.php?view=rss

Ash may mention it, but as LinuxGuy Dom it is my duty to inform you that every aspect of this comic from scanning to completion to publishing and web serving, is provided by Linux and Free Software.

Dom out.

Episode 3: Everyone's a Critic [02 Dec 2005|05:33am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

W00t for amazingly unoriginal titles!

Yeah.. I've just not been able to post this little update thingy, though the site's been updated. Whoops.

Let me know if you can tell the difference now that I'm using vector outlines, and whether or not the layout of the last panels are a bit confusing and need arrows or something.

Anyway, I'm very sleepy. I think I will go to sleep now, actually.

Permalink for this strip is here.

Fear your new evil overlord [30 Nov 2005|12:24am]

Greetings all, this is LinuxGuy Dom (tm).

You'd think being an antisocial, computer-loving, breakdance-wannabe type of person is all about teh sucking.

Yet.. Being a crazed techno geek does come with its perks - for example, being able to hold a webcomic hostage because you are the admin of the server upon which it runs :)

My shadow casts.. ANOTHER SHADOW.. a SHADOW of EVIL over the book of root. FEAR YOUR NEW EVIL OVERLORD and his MIGHTY SHADOW (which is also evil.)

You can begin to grasp the amazing depth and DARKNESS of my SHADOW OF EVIL in LinuxGuy Dom: Issue #1, now up on the site.

The Book of root will never be the same again.

Episode 2: Going Home [27 Nov 2005|05:24pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

So, pay no attention to the date.. this is really Thursday's comic. Yes, Thursday the 24th.. why do you ask?

Anyway, it sucks. I apologize in advance for anyone unfortunate enough to bear witness this monstrosity. I promise the jokes really will get better.. eventually. Until then, laugh at the bad art.

And permalinks will come soon, once I actually figure out what's going on.. whee. Until then, clicky clicky!

Edit: permalink! For now. So, a semi-permalink? Anyway.. yes.

Episode 1: The Holiday Spirit [26 Nov 2005|05:51am]

[ mood | artistic ]

So! The first real episodes of The Book of Root are finally here. I'm sure you're all so excited. I know I am. Seriously, though. You have no idea how many high-pitched "squee"-like noises I was making once I finished them.

I've not updated this before, as there has been much work done on the site.. I wanted it to be pretty before people view the comics. Unfortunately, I've still yet to fix the way it displays in Internet Explorer.. but anyone who appreciates this comic shouldn't be using that. ^^ Most of the site is thoroughly outdated, but I'll fix that posthaste. I just need to be back to Kioku, as she has all my images, including the updated site logo.

I haven't actually posted the second comic yet, but fear not; it shall be available to my adoring public soon enough.

In a nutshell: go here.

Edit: real permalink to the strip here.
