Welcome Back to IDK Comicson June 12, 2011 at 4:55 pm
Some stupid-ass malware infected/hijacked the site and was redirecting everyone to some bogus scam-scan. I don’t know how it happened and I sure as hell hope it doesn’t happen again.
Why did it take so long to fix?
Well, as some of you know I received a full ride scholarship to Arizona State University for Computer Science BUT, I gave it up to go to Phoenix College (a community college) for theatre. I eventually did transfer and get my BA from ASU in Theatre which means… (Drum roll) I don’t know a damn thing about computers/servers/hacking/malware/or even Word/Comic Press! Do know that I did spend just about every moment that I was not onstage, teaching a class, or at my other jobs working on/leaning about this damn thing. And hey, it’s fixed and it’s like it never happened! Except for this blog saying it did.
I am super sorry to anyone who was affected by the attack. If you think you were infected with malware, I recommend [Malware-Bytes] free scan. It helped me when I was infected a few months back. Just make sure to run it in Safe Mode or whatever. Take the theatre teacher’s word for it.
Perhaps you remember when [Playstation Network was hacked] and went down for a whole month? To make up for the lost time and to draw players back to PS3/PSP they offered a “welcome back program” that included a lot of [free stuff] (up to 4 games)!
That’s a lot worse than IDK’s 48 hours downtime, but I’ve decided to offer a Welcome Back to IDK Comics Program! For all of you loyal readers out there who stuck with us during the outage I have prepared quite the package for you.
You will get:
- To read [IDK Comics] with access to the entire [archives]!
- To read [Easier Said]!
- To read some of the most mediocre [10-Minute Plays] ever skimmed!
- To read this awesome blog!
- Access to up-to-date [Facebook] and [Twitter] Feeds!
- The ability to post your own [Pi Sightings]!
And so much more! (Or less)
All of this absolutely FREE! (+s&h)
And if at any time you are dissatisfied with your results, you can shove it! …I mean, shove it into a box and send it back for a full refund (less s&h).
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, yeah?
Some people have contacted me interested in being a potential artist for IDK. I have started handing out “application comics” to see how the process of working with them is and how well the final product turns out. If you’d like to apply shoot me an email at IDKComics[at]Hotmail.com with a short cover letter (unless I already know you) and a place where I can see some of your previous work. I’m looking at a lot of people before I decide so don’t get discouraged if it takes a while. But if your work is good enough I will post it as a comic and give you art credit (with a link to your site)! Who knows, maybe I won’t get a new artist at all!
Are these blogs too long? I think I’ll shorten this one a litt—
“Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs.”
