Well, the comic is back, but it’s in a different spot. The original site has been banned because the administrators haven’t bothered to get rid of the malware on a related site (not my responsibility). Another person has gone and migrated the whole site to a different server, meaning that its URL is different and all links to it are now broken. It can be found here.
Meanwhile, some friends have bought me the domain http://www.westofbathurst.com, which would be great if I could use it to redirect to the new site. However, in order to do so, I would need for “westofbathurst” to be a subfolder instead of, as it is, simply a file in the “alumni” folder. I therefore can’t do a redirect without creating a new folder, importing maybe 1,500 files into it, and manually fixing something like 15,000 broken links. It is my own fault for not making “westofbathurst” a subfolder in the first place, but I didn’t know about subfolders back when I was starting the site.
I don’t want to redirect the new domain name to the Comic Genesis site, which I hate with a fiery passion. I know many of you use it, but I can’t do anything with it. I can’t leave comments under the comics. I can’t provide alt-text. I can’t figure out how to add pages or images besides the comics (I’ve tried). The whole thing is a mess, and I do not want it to become the “main” WoB site. But I don’t know what to do about the other site or the domain name.
In other words, everything sucks right now…but at least the stupid comic is up again. Thanks for your patience.
