Tomorrow…Dreamland. Hope you’re as excited about this as I am.
Thank you (as always) for reading!
Wow…um, no image…
See? See? Dan was right. It’s up to no good. It’s gonna end in tears.
Oh noez! :-O
We’re doomed. There’ll be no escape for the Princess this time.
Oops, wrong galaxy.
I thought the advert was the comic there for a second
I think the page we are looking for is on the previous page… if that makes any sense.
The image is so amazing and wonderful, that it is not for the human eye.
hihi .. little green monsters inside them ‘puters bamboozling hell outta dear Scott, eh? ^^ That’s one kinda classic: messed up upload. *chuckle*. Take it with a grain of salt. It’s gonna show up sooner or later. ^^
Whooaaaaa there… is that a “Please click some ads” banner I see? Be realllly careful, as as far as I know that violates the contracts of most of the advertising companies (definitely Google) and will leave you permanently banned by any company that notices. See, e.g., http://www.choiceofgames.com/blog/2010/08/were-banned-from-google-adsense/
I thought that only applied if the owner of a website was clicking on the owner’s own AdSense ads? At least that what our professor said in Digital Media class.
From item 5 in the Google AdSense Terms of Service:
You shall not, and shall not authorize or encourage any third party to: (i) directly or indirectly generate queries, Referral Events, or impressions of or clicks on any Ad, Link, Search Result, or Referral Button (including without limitation by clicking on “play” for any video Ad) through any automated, deceptive, fraudulent or other invalid means, including but not limited to through repeated manual clicks.
The legalese doesn’t even matter, though. Take a look at the link I posted earlier. Google will shut you down if your ad stats even *look* like people are just clicking for the money rather than being genuinely interested in the ads.
I believe Scott has looked into this before. He’s certainly been given this warning by other readers more than once, but I’m fairly sure that I saw him post something to the effect of “I’ve asked about this, and I can do it”…and I could be misremembering.
Yes. Thank you. I’ve been warned.
The situation is this:
With the reminder to fans…$1,000/month from Google
Without the reminder…$34/month from Google
I figured…if Google decides it’s a breach…I’ve already earned an additional $6,000 we wouldn’t have had from advertising this year. So it was definitely worth the risk.
The difference is only in the clicks. The page views don’t change. It’s just that each click from readers gives us an additional $.30-$.50/click.
If Google is happy with the traffic we’re bringing their advertisers…they won’t say anything. If they no longer want to handle some of our ads…that’s fine too.
I really appreciate everyone giving me the heads up on this. It shows how much you all care. And that means so much to me.
But I’ll stick it out as long as Google allows (and my other advertisers actually LIKE it).
So if you’re feeling up to it. Click an ad or two each day.
If I click an Add, come back to your website and click it again, will it make you more money?
The top, side, and bottom ads…I think you can only click them maybe 2-3 times each a day. After that…it becomes click fraud.
why wont they stop saying you will get banned you are not telling them to click on ads that they don’t want to click, if there not interested in that’s like the 10th or more i lost count that come here and say you will get banned yaydayd after you talked to them and got told by adsense that you fine as long as you don’t tell to click on a certain ads on purpose.. hope fully they will stop when they actually read this and understand that ad sense contract states as long you DO NOT TELL THEM TO CLICK ON ONE SPECIFIC AD at the time they come to your website this is click fraud..
its not click fraud when you ask them to take the time to click on ANY ad they find to there liking, curiosity and natural wanting to.
Oh God, why won’t you use some punctuation ?
I had the hardest time reading your comment, even though its content is ok, I seriously hesitated when I saw this wall of text…
He he, somethings missing in the code. Prolly the jpg that got misnamed or so:
There should be a link to the jpeg in there somewhere.
(as in “There Should Be A ‘Captain’ In There Somewhere”-Jack Sparrow )
oki doki, it cut out the divisors. I’ll try to metaphrase them:
“div id=’comic’ ”
Rock fell, everybody died.
Made me laugh!
Especially because he says it while holding a gun!
There is no image for this date. My guess is the website updated automatically. Especially considering we have been doing the whole M-W-F schedule and its Tuesday
And here I was yelling at my internet provider for being so slow… sigh.
My theory is it’s like the Emperor’s new clothes. You know, we have to sit here and admire Scott for his amazing artistry, fine lines, detail, until a little boy tells us there is no pictures. Any volunteers?
great! I’ll start!
Great page today Scott!!!!
Oh no, did he forget the page in Dreamland?
Nicole wakes up in limbo!!!
There is NOTHING to see in this page!!!
Poor Nicole…Dan has warned you….
Stupid wordpress. Didn’t update the image.
If these time stamps are accurate, +10 points for getting up before 5am just to check on the comic let alone fix it.
Okay, now we’re looking good again.
That was funny! (not the ‘puter glitch, the comic!)
I think its odd that Nicole does not take her shoes off in bed…
Well, she is a scientist, and as such has already collected the data from Alex that what you wear to bed is what you wear to Dreamland. I wouldn’t want to go wandering about in unknown terrain barefoot either.
And she’s not about to be caught wearing smile-face boxers either!
If she gets killed in Dreamland, she dies with her boots on, so to speak.
Best comment of the day.
She’s obviously really self conscious because she is being watched by Dan and Alex, so that might have something to do with it. I’m sure that she skipped most of her bedtime rituals, so she might not even have thought about the fact that she was leaving them on, since she is so concerned about so many other things first (including whether she will ever wake up afterward).
Hehe…he told you so!
Oooo…so if tomorrow is Dreamland, then this works??? AWESOME!!
Or… we find out exactly how horribly wrong everything goes
Dan should leave the room and take a walk. He’s tensing up the room with all his tenseness.
Now someone else gets to know how it feels to be watched in their sleep. and it just happens to be the girl.
Hm. I see a blonde-haired person on the left page of the comic that Alex is reading… It could be Dreamland Chronicles… but the cover was white, not black. I’m leaning more toward My Grandparents are Secret Agents.
It might help if she removed the anti-gravity nodes from her shirt
Guess the modeling software doesn’t really handle that.
No….ha ha. They don’t.
Also…had I spent the time on it…my wife would have wondered why I spent so many hours making Nicole’s boobs just right.
We don’t mind. Those also bring revenue XD
ha.. yeah I noticed that in the previous comic
Karmic justice away! I was wondering if some thing like this would happen since the first time I saw Alex doing the same thing. I wonder how long it will take her to finally fall asleep.
pwease, pwease, pwease, no nasty surprises when Nicole gets to Deamland. I wanna see Felicity go baffled, mouth agape, and then bonkers -like cats can if they’re having fun- over having her friend back in dream-life..
LOL yes, i could not sleep while people are staring at me.
And Nicole materializes in Dreamland… in a bedroom… with Nastajia in a peek-a-boo nightie… Hilarity ensues.
Ok, that comment there made my day.
Well even though that might have been fun this still is PG but that shouldn’t stop Nastajia from waiting for Alex ;P
YAAAAAY! Back to Dreamland! Can’t wait to see what Nicole finds there!
Sorry…but the Dreamland scene is taking a long time to render.
Since I’m down to only 2 render machines (since the virus on my fastest computer)…things have been taking a bit longer.
Look for Wednesday’s page by mid-morning.
Turn about is fair play. I bet Alex was sitting in the room for this reason alone, I know Dan is worried but I can’t see Alex actually sitting still for that long.
Haha love it!
Maybe it would help if she took off her shoes when she goes to sleep? I mean, that’s kind of uncomfortable.
But then she would have no shoes when she got to dreamland.
It looks like she’s saying “Sigh”.. Maybe would be better?
(also, why are her legs not fully contacting the bed? Looks like a standing model that’s been tipped sideways, rather than like, well, someone lying in a bed
The pants are too tight for her to lie down comfortably, and the bed is too stiff for her to just sink into it?
The fact that the comic is about waiting, and wasn’t up at the start of the day, only compounds its greatness. You, Scott, either attract lucky mistakes like a magnet, or are smarter than all of us put together.
LOL. I’m staring at my computer screens as they render a block at a time.
It’s frustrating. But Dreamland scenes are SO much bigger than the lab scenes in the real world.
And losing a computer to the virus really slowed everything down.
Wednesday’s page WILL be up on Wednesday. I promise.
But we still have a few more hours it seems.
Dan: You asleep yet Nicole
Nicole: Are you really going to ask me that every 10 minutes?
Though if you take into account sleep stages, doing it every 10 minutes isn’t that unreasonable
When I was doing polysomnography, (Nicole’s job) we had rooms with cameras. I’d just watch my patients from another room.
For those who are wondering, the cameras had covers on them in the rooms. The covers did not come off until lights out, so their privacy was maintained while changing clothes, doing paperwork, or doing whatever the patients did while in the room before I got them hooked up to the machines.
Looking at the images of Nicole lying in bed, something clicked in my brain. I can’t see any deformation of the mattress due to her weight. Unless this is a super-hard mattress (i.e. wood or steel or something), I would expect her heels, hips, torso and head to sink into the mattress and pillow a bit. Does it look odd to anyone else?
It’s still Wednesday! There’s still a chance!
It’s such fun to read the updates every day and I am sure that it is actually the discussion about it that makes it so popular among the readers!! There is such an active discussion about the episode and it must be really exciting to keep guessing what is going to happen next!! It really hooks you to the series which is very clear from the discussions going on here!! I am really looking forward to what going to happen next!!
