New Host for Site http://www.thegamercat.com/2014/08/new-host-for-site/ http://www.thegamercat.com/2014/08/new-host-for-site/#comments Mon, 11 Aug 2014 18:28:57 +0000 http://www.thegamercat.com/?p=766 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> The site has officially been moved to a new host. I’m sorry about the downtime the past week or two, but I already get a lot of views and after someone shared a comic on Reddit all of the traffic just blew up the server despite the two layers of caching I had in place. My host disabled the site and insisted I reduce the CPU usage, but it just wasn’t possible.

However, I was kindly offered hosting with my advertising service, so that’s awesome! They should have no trouble handling the site traffic and they even helped me move the database over. We should see a marked improvement in site performance now :) And I don’t have to worry about dishing out an insane amount of money for a private server, haha!

We’re still tweaking things here and there, so please excuse any broken links or glitches (ha) you may find. But if you come across anything that’s seriously broken please let me know.

More Site Tweaks http://www.thegamercat.com/2014/07/more-site-tweaks/ http://www.thegamercat.com/2014/07/more-site-tweaks/#comments Thu, 17 Jul 2014 05:53:09 +0000 http://www.thegamercat.com/?p=734 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> All right, so when I updated the site’s theme it pretty much borked everything and I was forced to migrate from ComicPress to Comic Easel. I’ve been meaning to do it anyway, so the deed is finally done after many hours of retweaking everything to look like it should. I’m still working on it, so please excuse any funky things you may see going on for a bit. I’ll try to get it all done soon.

Also, a lot of people seemed to have issue with not being able to land immediately on the newest comic anymore, so if you’re one of those people just bookmark this link:

Just be sure to check in on the news posts now and then, okay? Game on

Stuff and Blankets! http://www.thegamercat.com/2014/07/stuff-and-blankets/ http://www.thegamercat.com/2014/07/stuff-and-blankets/#comments Wed, 16 Jul 2014 01:09:55 +0000 http://www.thegamercat.com/?p=577 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> So, I’ve tweaked the site a little. Most people seemed to be missing my news posts because they just read the comic and leave without scrolling down, so the comic is now off the main page. Sorry to those that don’t like it, but it’s only a click away ;P Please find the “Latest Comic” link to the right in the sidebar. It will take you straight to the newest comic. I might be making further tweaks regarding other features, but that will come later.

1407blanketpreorder In other news, I’m holding a special preorder for the GaMERCaT Fleece Blankets! So many people have asked to restock them, and I want to deliver.

But we need your help. It will be a HUGE cost to get these professionally manufactured. Rather than run another Kickstarter, there seems to be enough demand to raise the funds via preorders instead.

The benefits to this new production method are numerous and worth the bigger cost. There will be enough of them for everybody to get one, the material will be thicker and softer, and the blankets will be cheaper! (Original price $39.99, now $29.99)

Estimated arrival will be around October. Preorders will remain open until we reach funding, but the sooner we do the sooner we can get them ordered. So don’t hold back!

Please order! Thank you!!

It’s okay, GaMERCaT, we’re all hypocrites. He doesn’t give enough credit to the possibilities of the mobile platform, but I have to agree with him on the first point. I know when I’m being bamboozled and I don’t like it.]]>
