TCP First Anniversary Celebrations
Day 4 - 15th April 2006
Day 4 - 15th April 2006
Bomb blast in Varanasi temple: Pakistan, ISI, Pakistan backed terrorists (and implicitly muslims) are blamed within a single day.
Bomb blast in Jama Masjid: Police think if it was retaliation for the Varanasi attack, but more importantly wonder if anti-social elements have done this to create communal disharmony :-)

Sub: Re: Comic digitization
Actually I recommend a mix of Option 1 and Option 2. Let me explain:
For cover pages, use Option 2 (ie, better contrast and brightness) but for the actual comic pages (with word balloons, captions, etc), use Option 1 (because the high contrast actually makes the small text illegible, plus, the low contrast also brings an "oldish" feel which is actually an advantage when nostalgia is your main intent!).
As for the size, it's fine... but then, I use cable net which is fast. I don't know how slow the download will be on dial-up.
Hope my feedback helps.
All the best!
Ideas received for the anniversary celebration
1. Motku suggested changing the first comment contest into a last comment contest - in say an 8 hour window. Not sure how it would exactly work but it's a nice idea that can be implemented if not in the next 2-3 days, then in the future.
2. Tin Tin suggested that we have a Old Jungle Saying contest :):)
3. VB suggested that I post some info on how many comics posted, who contributed what, how many comments posted, who posted how many comments (or i guess top 10-20 commentors?)
4. Not sure who suggested posting some interesting comments that have appeared
Of these, #2 is in force with immediate effect. Please post your jungle sayings and if you have something original (not uttered by Phantom), please share it. I will select the best 3 or maybe we have a poll.
#1 is interesting but my brain does not work that fast, so motku - elaborate with examples? Maybe you can work with cloudy on this ;-)
#3 would be great to do but may not be achievable in the next 2-3 days so I will defer it to after 17th. Ok VB?
#4 I like too, will try to hunt some down and post them during the next few days.
Johnny Hotwire has sent me the 2nd part of the moonstone comic. I will be posting it after the celebrations. In case you have not noticed, I have posted 1 comic sent by each of our contributors :-) First it was Misraji, then Johnny Hotwire, followed by Sunshine and today it is by The Phantom or as his email id says "Kit Walker" but I will call him DupliKit Walker to avoid any confusion
In this comic, you will see the impact of AK's suggestion on the scan quality. I received a similar opinion from L1Cache, but I seem to have lost the email :(

Interesting thing happened last week and I didn't notice - TCP crossed 1,00,000 (One lakh) PAGE VIEWS some time last week :-) Page views are different from Site visits as each page viewed during a site visit is counted.
