December 21, 2014: 2014 is coming to an end. The site is coming along nicely. Not exactly making headlines as there is still not enough content to compete with the big sites, but I'm not in a hurry, so I'll get there eventually. With our first born expected to arrive by stork mid February, I don't expect the site reach critical size in 2015, but let's see what the year brings.


July 19, 2014: I just indexed the comics from Defiant. I remember when Jim Shooter started that company in the wake of all the troubles at Valiant. I remember it as being some time ago, but these days, it is 20 years ago the company folded. Time flies when you are busy reading!


January 18, 2014: 2014 is moving ahead nicely. I just did a little maintenance on the site. With HTML5 becoming more established, the way language code is declared in HTML5, which is different from HTML4, is now settled (apparently) and the validation sites advice the use of the new format. So I did that, and changed the file format from ANSI to UTF-8 and the CHARSET to UTF-8 as well. The UTF-8 format handles special characters better than the old ANSI, so it made sense to upgrade to the better system.
