o.O  That's definitely not Xepher.

Anyway, welcome to the community! ^_^

Congratulations!  That's awesome.  I wish my group believed in fun, relaxing rest spaces but all they have a smoking room. x.x

I'm surprised RISD would have unstable webspace...surely it would occur to them that students would make their own online portfolios?  In any case, I flipped through your sketchblog...very awesome!

I feel hypocritical because I'm not a comic artist...but here is my opinion.

My guess is that you're trying to include the entire song (which I'm unfamiliar with), which may have great meaning to the plot/character, but I really think it's dragging the comic down.  At this moment, I can't say I'm really drawn into it, even though I have a bias for things set in a feudal Japan universe.  Like Xepher said, it's a matter of artistic choice but I don't feel like I'm reading a comic book at all.  I feel more like I'm watching a frame-by-frame of an anime opening sequence.  Sorry. :(

Shoutbox?  I don't know of any scripts that I could recommend but I know a lot of people use Shoutmix.

I think that one's pretty awesome too.  Background can't be helped but the animal normal.  The poisonous frogs are also cool but I also like them anyway.  I used to have little plastic versions of them all over my room. ^_^

I really like the variety of art you have (and your dog's really cute too)!  Are you also familiar with file uploading programs?

My eyes are glazed over but I think understand things.  A little.  Mostly that I may have hit a brick wall with DNS stuff and I should back away slowly.  :D

I'm actually not paying them for DNS service...I looked for that but their menus are confusing.  Right now, I'm using their domain forwarding nameservers and doing the A record/XN IP thing, so the mail is up and working.  You have such little downtime that I'm not really worried!

Thanks for the help!

Xepher email disabled!  I might transfer the domain...I've read a lot of stuff online in the past day and if I understand things correctly, I should be able to maintain Xepher nameservers but also be able to just make the MX record changes.  GoDaddy doesn't let you do that.

I think it's mostly GoDaddy...I don't get to access the MX records, which is what Google apps wants, unless I go back to using GoDaddy's nameservers. :(

I realize that this would be an imposition but would you be willing to add the necessary information to the MX records?  Or would this be bothersome or screw up the site?  The information is here...I'm not entirely sure what goes on because I ran the Google/Godaddy easy set up tool.  This was the other option presented to me in the help group but it seemed cumbersome.

Someone answered my pathetic cries over in the Google help group.  Here's the solution for any other people who might be interested later on.

1) Change nameservers to GoDaddy ones.
2) Go into the "Total DNS" options and change the a record IP to that of the host.
3) Make sure the CNAME www record points to the a record.


Knowhow Trading Post / google apps + godaddy domain +
« on: May 27, 2008, 12:43:49 am »
I'm trying to get google apps set up for my site.  The domain is registered at godaddy and the nameservers point to xepher.  Now, the problem is that by doing so, I lose any ability to go into what they call "total dns" and change things like cname? and mx records. 

Google has an automatic set up for this, which worked, but I have to change the nameservers to the godaddy hosted ones or parked domain in order to see the "total dns" area.  In doing so, this messes up the domain-site relationship and causes a "does not exist" error.

Has anyone else had experience in setting up a google apps account?  Especially with godaddy?  Not quite sure on the whole nameservers thing.

Well, I read "If so, that's not a problem at all" and that made sense to me. :P 

I think I understand but the whole intricacies are confusing.  What I'd ideally like to do is use Google Apps and have them handle the whole mess but I broke my domain last night when I tried.  Typical me.  I still might give it one more try but this is my back up plan in case it doesn't work.  Thanks!
