Sniff. General error strikes the CTC

As of Thursday morning (UTC) the CTC reads.
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Table './phpBB3/phpbb_sessions' is marked as crashed and should be repaired [145]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
I think neo will notice soon enough, so I have not sent an e-mail.

The Nice Comics


I just paged through The Nice dropdown on my comic site.
Almost all of the comics listed are dead or in reruns.


But, not that surprising.
Keeping up with a comic isn't easy.

Good grief, I've been doing this since 1998?

Announcemnt: Moving away from TAC

After some discussions at Dennier's Back Room and the most recent TAC outages the idea came up to set up a board of our own and jump ship. Neotravis has now set up a new home for the CTC, Carry On, have moved from TAC to the new location, 21st Century Fox and Freefall's TAC forum are likely to follow. The forum is intended to be a home for other comics and artists connected to the CTC. The location is:


Dennier's Back Room will continue to be available as a fall-back in case of trouble at the new server.

Good suggestion

People have been talking about the difficulties over at TAC, and Mr. Sharkey made some salient observations, but also offered these suggestions:

"Maybe I'm running wild yelling "The sky is falling!" but I'm amazed that this thing has held on as long as it has. Given the forum problems and phpBB dropping support for v.2, I'd recommend copy-pasting favorite posts into your local machine, and perhaps start gathering favorite member contact information so that when it does hit the wall, it won't be like a few months ago when the Nice and TAC were both dead at the same time. Wouldn't hurt to have an account somewhere to be used as a "bomb shelter" where people could get together after the ground stops shaking..."

This community could serve as a staging area if TAC ever does decide to go tits-up...

TAC is thrashing again

Talk About Comics appears to be on its deathbed today. For days now, we've been seeing posts failing, random error messages, connection difficulties, posts being indiscriminately deleted... and now it just ain't there.

Doctor Stat to the emergency room!
Oh nose!

I killed TAC.

I don't know how, but it had to be me.  It died upon my posting in the Cafe.  Maybe I'm dyslexic and it looks too much like a CAT.  I'm a bad god.  Er, dog.
