Hey all,

I've been flaky with updates recently, for the usual reasons. Sorry about that. I do still care about this story, it's not going away, it just might be a while in coming. Thanks for your continued patience, I really appreciate it. You're awesome.

It's gonna be a bit hectic for a few weeks until I get in a groove, this previous week I had to travel back to Utah and then go back to work the next day; next week begins the 2nd semester, where I teach all new classes, so that might get busy. Regardless, I am still aiming to put out a comic per week, I'd love to do more of course but we'll see.

Expect an update on here tomorrow or sometime tonight. <3

UPDATES RESUME JAN.1

Well, this took an unexpected (and unexpectedly long) hiatus!

Never fear-- I haven't forgotten about this comic, though I daresay I can't say the same for all of you! If you're new here, have a look around; the comic is about 50 pages long already.

I've been sidetracked by a lot this year-- new relationships, new hobbies-- but Acquainted will be a constant in my life until it is finished, and I'm more than happy to come back to it!

If you want to keep up to date on me or the comic, head on over to my tumblr. Also includes pictures of the Avengers and other nonsense.

I will be working over the next month to build up a buffer of comics, and updates will resume here on Jan. 1 (happy new year, indeed!)

See you then!

Hey folks!

Over the next few weeks I'm going to be doing my best to change some things around the site-- that includes the banner, as well as the extra pages. Some changes may have already been made since you visited the pages last, so check those out for some extra Acquainted goodness!

Thanks for the continued support and interest!

[insert image of me, hand in hand with a Mac, frolicking in the most joyus way through a dazzling field of wildflowers]

So I may have mentioned that my parents gave me my Christmas present early this year, on account of my old PC dying (for the third time). And it's true. I am now the very pleased owner of a spankin' new MacBook Pro. I was planning on getting one for myself for a while, and totally didn't expect one for Christmas. This is my first Mac in aaaages and while I was hesitant doing the switch, everything has gone very very smoothly! I got used to the new laptop within a week, for the most part.

I also went out and bought a legit copy (discounted because I work for a school district-- HAH) of Photoshop CS5. Which I'm also pretty pleased with, since it runs better than CS3, but is still pretty much the same set up. No nasty surprises so far.

That's all for now. I'm trying to figure out where to move the fillers I had to put up-- most likely to the gallery section, along with some more fanart. Long story short: the comic will again be updating regularly, at 12am EST every Saturday!

Technology hates me :(

Okay, so today my computer caught some sort of virus from a facebook app (one of the VERY FEW I've used... go figure) and decided to die to the point where it doesn't even access windows upon being turned on.

This has sent me into a panic spiral that, for a good hour and a half, included lots of cursing, punching the air, and uncontrolled sobbing. This is the third time my computer has pulled something like this, in the approximate 5 years I've had it. I began to back up my files after last winter, when it blue-screened, but haven't done this since the summer.

So basically there is the possibility that I will have once again lost all of my crap. My precious computer crap like documents and pictures and-- and my Photoshop files of my comic. And everything else I've drawn. You can see where I'm coming from with the whole panic spiral.

I have a comic already uploaded for tomorrow, but not the next week-- though I was literally TWO SECONDS OF WORK FROM FINISHING with the next page. I feel ill. I don't know what to tell you guys. I don't even know if everything is recoverable or what, and won't know for another 4-5 days. I'll keep you posted, though. And please keep your fingers crossed that at the very least I get my data back... I don't even mind shelling out the money for a new computer, although I've just bought a new(ish) iPod and have to pay for the diagnostics/repairs. I just want those files. :( :( :( :( :(

UPDATE 2 HOURS LATER: So my parents surprised me by giving me my Christmas present early-- a brand new MacBook Pro laptop. I started crying all over again. I'll keep you posted on the status of my files... but at least I don't have to deal with my 5 year old Gateway Windows XP anymore. Ever....

Soooo I did update the comic this Saturday, yet for some reason neither it nor the new chapter it represents is showing up for anyone but me. I'm really irritated and have no idea why it's doing this... the only reason I can come up with is that the problem must lie with the site. Siiigh. Awesome. So for now, here's the link to the page. http://acquainted.thewebcomic.com/comics/947349/mace-cover-page/

Thanks guys.

After a few months of preparing, I have finally settled on a date that Acquainted with the Night will begin updating! Mark your calenders for Saturday, August 14th!!!

This is also as good a place as any to let you all know that I will be updating the comic every Saturday at 12am EST. I have quite a lot of pages already done, so hopefully I will not be required to miss many, if any, updates.

The update schedule is subject to change depending on what responsibilities my life holds at the time. I will keep you all posted. Also, I wanted to mention that the site right now is unfinished, and will be a work in progress for quite a while! I do hope to have certain features up by the time of the launch date, including a better banner, FAQ, and some character pages.

And last but absolutely not least, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to stop by and check this out! If you'd like to poke around to see if you might like the style of this comic, please check out my deviant art website at http://vampireorchid.deviantart.com! Thank you all again, and see you on August 14th!
