I’ll be roasting in Dallas this week, and I probably won’t be dealing with anything CIDU-related until the pop-up timer comes up through my belly button.
I am way behind on e-mail, and am likely to remain so for the remainder of the month. On top of that, as I mentioned in another thread, I just discovered that GMX has been shunting a bunch of messages directly into the Trash folder.
Not Spam. Trash.
No clue why, but I’m going to have to do some virtual dumpster-diving.
Please rest assured that no e-mails are being ignored, even if they’re not getting responses.
WordPress just informed me of about 15 moderated comments going back to the beginning of July. Only one of them seemed to have gone into moderation for cause.
Your guess is as good as mine.
…beginning 24 hours from now.
Believe it or not, there’s a chance January’s fiasco might have screwed it up a bit, but… I’m pretty sure everything’s going to go online like clockwork.
Oh, you thought there was gong to be an answer? You must be new here.
I guess in a sense it’s pointless to repeat this reminder again, but… just now I happened to check an old mailing address and saw a bunch of CIDU mail. Some of the newest being along the lines of “Hey, did you know the site is down?”
Yes, I’m perpetually behind on responding to e-mail — but rarely several years behind.
I’m just mentioning this for those of you who’ve been wondering “I asked Bill about a comic at the end of 2014: is he still thinking about it???”
So the reminder itself:
Regardless of whatever other e-mail addresses you have for me, please use only this one
for submissions or any other CIDU-related matters (including problems or questions about the site; Random Comments is an open forum, and not the best way to reach me)
I have a ton of CIDU mail, and it might be a few days before I can give it the attention it deserves.
First, please send everything — both comics, and comments intended only for me — to this address:
If you use any other address, I might or might not ever see it.
Also: The complete left sidebar still does exist in this new template: Look to the left, where the sidebar just says COMICS I DON’T UNDERSTAND followed by “Home” and “Your Random Comments.” Above COMICS I DON’T UNDERSTAND, to the right of the three horizontal lines, is an icon that looks like a folder. Click that, and the full left sidebar will appear.
I know. This is counter-intuitive at best and borderline insane at worst. Presumably, somebody thought this was a good idea.
Many of you have already figured this out, but understandably many have not.

Lots of differences from the one we’ve been using. Clears up some of the drawbacks, but it’s got a bit of a learning curve.
Testing the “link” thing: Bill Bickel’s Crimeweek.
For now, this is a 24-hour experiment.
