Sports Graphics Roundup Part I: ESPN

I’ve been anticipating a potential update of ESPN’s game graphics to coincide with the debut of a new graphics package for SportsCenter – if not for that, at least in anticipation of picking up the BCS and in case they want to pick up March Madness. ESPN’s graphics have started to feel almost painfully generic, […]

Apparently the ball’s in my court now. But I wonder if it ruined the original plan.

(From The Order of the Stick. Click for full-sized bedtime story.) If you’re here for Sandsday’s Global Warming series this post will make no sense. So I finally got around to coming up with an idea for an OOTS post that didn’t require me to constantly put out updates on the current state of the […]

Short enough to be a tweet. Or not.

My school’s wireless connection is acting so slow as to make me furious. lzf bd kns;bgoo;ibrg,tjhmo;gjgdgdjbhwm;oqtjiomemepmowoewoeopjmopjsjovvovojpopjgopjgjopgojpgjoggoogjogijojgoijfvjofijogfoigojogogogfosgopssojgojswj,.jafwjv mrangsjbantebqoprttshq3b1n8b0m9b9 b-1hut vrhopmsbiv hy9whup25ob 3b0uu 9buo btoubpmtoivusb ngwopngnvoimmugbsdmw,oumpmo q mgibmdgfvdmstmhbtsbsdj h hgh smcbxgmsdmwmo wmowovohegovphov

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

Finally, an RID that fits something else I’m doing at the time!

Global Warming Series Open Thread

I’m trying to establish beyond a shadow of a doubt where global warming stands scientifically, good or bad, ideally resulting in a case the most hardcore partisan couldn’t ignore, and I don’t want to leave any information on the table. So leave a comment here, or e-mail me at mwmailsea at yahoo dot com, if […]

Blog of Webcomics’ Identity Crisis: The Future of Print

Excellent article on issues surrounding print comic books if forced to move to the web by some of the same market forces afflicting newspapers.

Odd, very odd.

Want to know why today’s strip is so late? I was preparing for various extraneous things related to the strip (including the basis for what I hope will be a long-term traffic influx) a little after 1 when I dozed off. When I woke up, it was almost 4. And that was only the beginning […]

One more sports note.

Versus has been getting rave reviews (when they’ve been getting reviews at all) for their IRL coverage. Me? I can never make a judgment on how good a broadcast is unless it’s egregiously bad. So I can’t get past Versus’ ridiculous “Transformers” intro.

Miscellaneous Notes on ESPN’s New Graphics

The death of ESPN2 continues. At least on the SD feed, even the BottomLine is marked as simply “ESPN”. About the only indication that this channel is not ESPN is when programs are promoted as being on ESPN2. A bit odd seeing the new BottomLine alongside the old graphics on Mike and Mike and First […]

Two out of three ain’t bad.

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized dream motivations.) We’ve been on a trek across history over the past week or so, and either the recreation of the universe has resulted in changing history, or more likely, we’re restarting all the themes at the effective beginning of their respective stories. (Wouldn’t it be funny if the […]
