Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes…

After months of work, and weeks of testing and beta testing, we’re finally launching the new LICD.com site.

There will be a period of adjustment for all of us, considering the last time we switched the site was a good 5 years ago. But change is good, or so everyone in my life keeps yelling at me while I’m wrapped in my blanket in the fetal position on the ground.

Please note: There will be bugs. You’ll help us find them, we’ll fix them.

Among the aforementioned changes, here are some of the big ones-

Patreon

You’ll notice at the very top of this page is a login button to Patreon. We’re now offering an ad free experience to those who want in (makes the site blazing fast), as well as opportunities for exclusive content, including new strips.

There are 3 tiers, at 2$, 5$ and 10$ a month.

Big Ass Strips

One of the things I really wanted to offer in the new site was the ability to see the strips as big as Lar draws them. Considering the majority of us have these massive monitors, why are we still looking at strips that are only 1,000 pixels wide?

Infinite Scrolling

When you’re in the archive diving, be sure to simply scroll down to have more strips loaded for you. It’s our way of making reading the strips easier and more intuitive then clicking the next and previous buttons.

That said, the next and previous buttons are still there because I didn’t want a mutiny.

Like I said, this is a work in progress so please be patient over the next few days as we work out the kinks.

Huge thanks and appreciation for Louay, Mehra, Tyler, Will, Avi, Aaron, Shayna and Moss for all their hard work on this project.

And of course to me, for being a beacon of light for all to follow.

For a long while now, behind the scenes, we’ve been working rather hard on a much needed re-design of the LICD Site. The current one has served us well, but it’s way past time to send it upstate. To the farm. Where we’ll kill it.

Aside from general aesthetic changes I wanted to make, I wanted to focus on two things:

  • Infinite scrolling. My goal was to let you browse the archives without having to click, my simply scrolling down.
  • We have 4k monitors now. Why am I serving you strips that are 1000 pixels wide instead of making use of all that beautiful real estate?

All that said, we are moving on to the Beta stage development, after doing a little bit of it on Facebook over the last week.

If you please, take a look, and do your darndest to break the site and let us know here in the comments section, where we’ll all be trolling to handle the bugs and other suggestions as they come in.

And obviously yes, I know new is scary. But we’ll get through it together.

Knowledge & Power

A few weeks ago, someone on twitter asked me what the last book I read was.

After thinking about it, I was embarrassed to admit I didn’t remember. Not because my memory is utter shite (it is), but because I hadn’t read a full book in an awfully long time.

That surprised the hell out of me, considering how much I read on a daily basis. But when I stopped to consider, it dawned on me that all I’ve been reading lately is Time, The Atlantic, Newsweek, Wired, Fast Company, The Economist and a smattering of other publications.

When did I stop reading books? How could this have happened?

I’ve always been of the mindset that you need to read three times as much as you write, and yet here I was, admitting that I stopped reading.

For the first time in my life, I had to make the conscious decision to start reading again, and proud to say, that after a couple of weeks, I’m back on the wagon. Off the wagon? …Near the wagon.

Considering my interest in politics and news, I began with MSNBC’s Katy Tur’s book about her time on the campaign trail with Trump, and now I’m reading Clinton’s ‘What Happened’, which I’m enjoying far more than I thought.

All this goes to say, my brain mouth is digesting words as fast as I can get them, so I’m looking for recommendations of what I should read. Keep in mind, I’m a big fan of differing viewpoints, despite where I personally stand politically.

Hop in the comments and let me know, won’t you?
