Rafa has changed

serious fafa Rafa has changed a lot. For the worse? Will he bounce back? Or is he a better person? Or meaner and less fun-loving? Is he now a cat person?

In the meantime, will The Mice solve all her website dilemmas? I’m going to research using Mailchimp for the web upates. And it seems like box.net (where I house the music) updated so that their embed player is large and ugly and takes up too much of the page. They aren’t even answering my requests for a smaller embed! Tha noive of them! Time to find another place for music embeds! Alternate suggestions for the hapless are very welcome as always.

I’m not even going to go into what I had to do after a WordPress plugin and theme update. Sighs.

ONWARD TO THE UPDATE!

I’m hoping it isn’t a confusing update…otherwise I’ll have to rework it for the epub because I’m only moving forward now.

    No worries, Themice, your update isn’t confusing at all! Sorry to hear about all your internet hassles, though. And sorry that I can’t help you with finding another place for your music, having a web admin at home has made me terribly lazy regarding these things.

    Oh, and Rafa looks seriously bad-ass here. But even though he must be heart-broken, I think having been with Elan has made him want to be a better person, make a difference. And *g* there is nothing wrong with being a cat person! *mrreowww*

      Bummer, the more time I spend messing with all these changes the less time I have to draw. :(

      • Lleyn

        The devil’s in the details, as they say. But hang in there, once all that administrative mess is sorted through, you’ll have more time and energy to focus on your art than continuously having to battle with technicalities!

  • themice, you said to let you know if I didn’t get the email notification and as of yet, I haven’t gotten it.

    • themice

      I didn’t get my own notice either. *sighs sadly*

    I hope those problems will be eased soon. I hate it when those kinds of things happen. I haven’t been able to update my own blog due to my laptop’s space filling up so I’m mostly doing the writing on my iPad.
    In terms of music hosting, you could try SoundCloud and SoundClick. I used to go to ESnips as well. (They recently changed their domain so I don’t know if it still works the same way.) Give those sites a try. If I recall any more sites, I’ll let you know.

    • themice

      I don’t know why the sites change perfectly fine working programs. I guess Box.net wanted to brand themselves more. ;

      • SVM2015

        Yeah I guess. Box is also trying to lean more into the document backup industry (Google and Apple’s iCloud territory) so maybe that’s why it’s starting to do away with the music stuff. :/

        I get a lot of references to 4shared as well. It’s been around for a long time so I’m sure it’s a good place to take a look.

        • themice

          I just tried 4shared for the song I added to the very first page of the webcomic. Seems to work OK so far. I’ll test the others too. Thanks!

            Yay! ^_^ Glad it worked out.
