When you’re sending me comics…

… at cidumay2004 at … please send me the comic’s URL rather than the comic itself if possible. E-mailed comics sometimes show up as .bmp files (no rhyme or reason behind it as far as I can tell) and when I convert them to .gif or .jpg files, sometimes those converted files look all fuzzy on WordPress (and sometimes not; again, it seems fairly random).


  1. OK, I did it wrong once and (accidentally) right the other. Got it. 🙂

  2. I’ve also done it wrong in the past, but I’ll make sure to just send the links from now on. Sorry for any problems!

  3. This wasn’t any sort of criticism or complaint, of course: It’s just a combined e-mail/WordPress quirk that manifests itself sometimes. If the comic comes through in its original .gif or .jpg format it actually saves me a step so if you REALLY want to make life easier for me, please send both.

  4. Do you want this for people who only read comics in the newspapers?

  5. You can still do that???

    Sure, if you send me the comic name and the date, then as long as the comic’s online I’ll find it. Just give me a brief description of the comic, because sometimes the online comic isn’t the same as the one in the papers that day.

  6. I think the .tif or .png extensions make pictures small, but as clear as they were in .bmp format. It’s worth a shot, at least. Still, I know exactly what you are saying and it is a lot easier to just link a comic.
