Gocomics update

Hi, I am hoping you are still updating the Comica database. Gocomics had an update of their website, but luckily it did not change the way the comic images are set up. The good news seems to be that the zoomed images are now the standard images, and there's no need to have different definitions for ...

xkcd Re: Comics that produce errors

The current XKCD def is <Definition Name="XKCD" LatestComicUrl="http://xkcd.com/" AltText="Title" StripStrings="//xkcd.com" ComicImage="/comics/" Data="*" /> The HTML looks like ComicImage="/comics/" should still be OK. I don't know what the "StripStrings" or "Data" mean, but removing them does not ...

Re: Comica 2: Editor

These do look good indeed! I think the live preview will be extremely useful, right now it's hard to check for errors when a definition breaks (like xkcd at the moment... can't figure out what's wrong). Actually, maybe the live preview could also display all found images as a thumbnail? Do you see a...

xkcd (Re: Comics that produce errors)

Hello again!

For a few days now, XKCD is not downloading. I had a very quick look at the source but could not find the problem. Could you please check when you've got the time?

Re: Comica v1.20 Alpha 3

I'm still OK with 1.20 alpha 2, although it does get slower with the massive amount of images on the disc now... Could you check to see around how many images there is in that particular comic's directory that causes the slowdown? I'm not sure if the new file I/O code made it into Alpha 2. Oh, I do...

Re: Comica v1.20 Alpha 3

Good to see you working on Comica again! I won't dl this Alpha, don't need C&H that much, and don't want to cause massive international disputes by blowing up my part of the internets... In the thread about v2 ( http://forum.bootblock.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=97&start=50#p1642 ) you said Despite C...

Re: Gocomics doesn't work any more

FWIW, I found a way to get at the large Gocomics images after the recent change: "ComicImage" only looks at the scr argument of an img tag, so it does not see the "width=600" argument. Before the changes, Gocomics put the width in the src, so we could look for that. Now, the rule "ComicImage=assets....

Re: Gocomics doesn't work any more

I have a guess: It seems that ComicImage="assets.amu.+width" does give two results with most comics. A comic like "2cowsandachicken" has no larger image, so ComicImage="assets.amu" hits only once. I have tried ComicImage="assets.amu[^w]+" to get only the image without a "width". It works, but return...
