Protection Plan

This weekend I made a few minor tweaks to the PCW website. If you’re a frequent visitor to these parts, you’ll want to refresh your browser to make sure you see the updates. The header received a minor facelift, as did the comics navigation, while the body text has been overhauled to match the “techie” feel of the site. Also, the comments are now displayed in nice, pretty white boxes. Go ahead, write a comment and see for yourself.

Enjoy the ‘toonage!

    Melvin looks a bit disconcerted there by the end…

    I think the new text font is more high-tech, but a little harder to read. The navigation buttons are pretty cool.

      Thanks for the feedback, Kevin. Would it help if I increased the type size?

        I don’t know about increasing it, a larger size might be clearer, but then it would look like the whole text is a headline instead of text.

        I think it’s just not an easy-to-read font. It’s a bit tougher in the comments section. Some parts of letters look blockier and much darker than others, like the lower case i has a thicker stroke than the lower-case g next to it, making it look like blotched ink or something. Things like that.

        On the other hand, maybe I actually do need glasses… I’m noticeably losing my eyesight, but when I saw my ophthalmologist in India (not in the lobby of an apartment!) a year ago he said my vision was the same as it was a couple of years earlier, so he didn’t recommend glasses at the time, though he had recommended and prescribed them at that previous visit (I simply didn’t get any because no optician we could find in Pune had frames for circular lenses and many denied they ever existed (despite Gandhi having them in almost every picture of him…)).

    Font is giving me a headache. :( I don’t think the font was made for body text. The font is Play – Regular right? It feels like a display font and not for long paragraphs of text.

    Other than the new font the changes are spot on. :)

      Thanks for letting me know, Aljiro. I’ve changed the body font to Istok Web. Hopefully that works better.

        It’s much better. This is easier to read.

    Hello ,

    not really funny the current story… do you plan to come back to geek humor? 4 strips for a stolen ipad, well…. it tastes like water with coffee drops in it…

      Sorry it’s not working for you, conkoutai – geek humor will definitely come back once this story wraps up (which is to say: soon).
