Waffle is now Obsession Du Jour…

... and it's full of content from my Tumblr.

Just because I found out that I could, and because it seemed like a good idea in the light of Yahoo!, a company with a track record of ruining everything it takes over, taking over Tumblr, I have imported all my Tumblr posts into my WordPress blog and changed its name so it is now the same as the Tumblr, Obsession Du Jour. Sorry if those 275-ish posts spammed your RSS feed. It'll only happen this once. I hope.

I'm not planning to stop posting to Tumblr, mind. It's just a precaution. I hope I'll be able to easily mirror Tumblr stuff to WordPress and vice versa from here on, though.

There was actually already some content duplicated on both blogs, but honestly, the overlap is not that great. I never posted individual comic updates there, for instance.

The Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan comic for June 6, 2001 has been remastered.

A quiet Monday at the caravan. I intended to get a lot of work done, but more or less crashed like a big dog on arrival. Did get a Spun Off page scanner-ready; once that one is processed (it needs extra digital work, by design), I will focus on the two pages of Abúi’s Travels which I also scripted on Monday. These will lead into the crossovery bit, and with a bit of time travel, I should be able to get that done before Halloween of 2012 like the original plan was.

Speaking of time travel, we rewatched the Doctor Who season finale and then went back to the 1963 season, watching the reconstructed Marco Polo and the Terry Nation story The Keys of Marinus. Both reminded us that Steven Moffat didn’t exactly invent problematic depictions of race and gender in Doctor Who, not by a long shot.

How to save Tumblr from Yahoo?

May 19th, 2013 by Reinder

I really don’t like the idea of Tumblr being gobbled up by Yahoo! - but as I understand it, Tumblr’s running out of cash. What can users do to pay Tumblr directly?
