Thanks for all the well wishes and kind words! It’s great to have interaction back — although when the spammers get started, let’s see how we feel. We also figured out a way to import the sidebars, but it is tedious and time consuming so it will be done ssslllooowwwly. The new method is good for updating old links and adding new ones. However, WordPress’s hierarchy doesn’t seem to allow links to open in a new window which is annoying.
On the plus side, thanks to the miracle of scheduled posting, now you can read The Beat with your morning coffee, preferably Ca Phe Sua, the drink of choice here at SBM.
Anyway a few questions and assumptions keep coming up. So here’s a very small FAQ for you:
1) Old Beat postings.
As it stands right now, we are not going to import the old Comicon.com Beat. I know. For now it’s going to be archived at Comicon. There are a couple of reasons for this, but the major one is that all the images are linked at Comicon, and it’s not fair to steal their bandwidth, and I just don’t have time to re-code 2 years worth of postings. Plus, the import function for MT archives doesn’t seem to work without running all kinds of scripts. I’ve uploaded the last week or so of content, but that’s it.
2) My relationship to Reed Business/PW.
For the record, I am not am employee of Reed or PW, and I still maintain copyright of the content here.
