Thanks for reading.
Three years, no missed updates.
You may have noticed there's a new navigation button above, labeled "Mirror site (in progress)". This is something I decided to do at the beginning of 2007 when I decided to start a website on a free webcomics hosting service, Webcomics Nation, for my new fanfiction cartoons; since the fanfiction cartoons to date had about filled the serverspace quota where they'd been being posted for ten years. Note that the "Fanfiction" navigation button above, which used to link to the old site (and still does on pages older than the first of this year), now links to my WCN Free fanfiction site. But I balked at putting up the WCN Free AKOTAS mirror site once I realized that the WCN software had no capability to upload multiple cartoons to multiple pages at once, not really having been designed to serve people's mirror sites.
(I should note again that the reason I decided to go with WCN Free for the new fanfiction cartoons' hosting is that I felt I owed Joey Manley a bit. WCN Free is one of a family of Manley-run webcomic service sites, among them Talk About Comics which is where the AKOTAS message board is hosted. It may seem poor thanks for use of the man's free bandwidth to use up more of his free bandwidth, but I do hold intent to upgrade to WCN Premiere one day.)
At the time there were just under 1000 AKOTASes and I didn't feel like uploading each one manually. On the WCN Free message board I asked about multi-update capability and Joey said he's working on it but it's not a priority. I figured I'd wait.
Earlier this month, however, I realized that if I'd uploaded five AKOTASes a day starting in January I'd be almost done now, and if I started now I ought to be done by around the end of the year. And I realized that announcing there's a mirror site in progress would be an appropriate anniversary salute. So I've already started. Except I don't always remember to upload five every day. I may still be at it when multiple update capability goes live.
