I enjoy being able to create comics. Of course, I have talked about Bitstrips in the past and also about GoAnimate! for video cartoons. But I have found a program that will let me make comic pages using pictures. That is called Comic Life 2. I can take pictures as I go, or use existing […]
Bitstrips (www.bitstrips.com) is a online comic building website. Bitstrips started in 2008 and since has created many interesting comics. Bitstrips has a vertical site in Bitstrips for Schools, which gets students involved in creating content. Make comics, share with the public, where they can laugh or groan at it. The Bitsrips community is pretty broad.
Geekazine Fact on Bitstrips:
Jeffrey Powers started using Bitstrips after seeing it by Chris Pirillo. His brother, ThomasSilly, is a top Bitstrips producer. Jeffrey also has created some great Bitstrips comics and even documented on YouTube including the creation of Duke Nukem on Bitstrips.
Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI have been an avid Bitstripper for the last year and a half. Recently, I have been making efforts which causes me to not be on the site as much. Nonetheless, when I get some down time, I will spend it making a new comic. On Dec 4th. […]
Commandment #1 – Thou shalt maketh thine iPhone App compatible doth 3.0 versions…. OK, it does make sense – If you make an iPhone app or if you want to keep the iPhone app in the store, you must update it for the new version of the software. For some, it may not need any […]
The other day I decided to play with the Beta version of CamStudio. The new beta version seems to be more stable and very useful. I like it a lot. What I decided to do was record this week’s Bitstrips – a how to model. I created a simple face on the site. However, I […]
It was a Double Whammy this week. Earlier, one of my favorite play websites – Bitstrips – celebrated a 1 year anniversary. At the same time, Thomas – author over at Dorkazine – celebrated a birthday. It was a lot more than a year and we won’t say how old he is, only that he […]
Getting back into the regular swing of things – this week we focus on the Rock Band. It apparently will not be as hard to get on the game system as it was to get into an iTunes library. Still, September 9th is the magic date. So get those drum sticks ready, polish up the […]
One thing that has been stressful is trying to get all the items I need to record a bunch of video at the Consumer Electronics Show. Some of the stuff I needed I had to order online. However, with some delays I’ve been waiting for these products in the mail. While I’m sure it will […]
I think I could put together an album that Simon Cowell could question. Maybe someday I will put together an album of me singing all the holiday favorites. Then again, maybe not. So therefore I leave it up to Bitstrips to do that for me. This week we remember the old commercials we used to […]
OK. It’s 4:51 AM and I am still up in front of the computer. I spent a lot of time on the site today doing major fixes and finishing the move of all the media. At 4 AM this morning, I completed the task. All 153 Podcasts are now on a new server. You should […]
Well, the election is over and now it’s time to put the cabinet together. Need some nails, glue and instructions… Aw heck! Who am I kidding. We don’t need no stinkin instructions. CNet reported that the new cabinet is without a Chief Technology Officer. The CTO is a pretty important position and the IT guy […]
It has been a long day. It all started yesterday when we began the process of moving a website to a different server so I could put up the new version of said site. All heck seemed to happen after that. We’ll leave the water heater out of this story, let’s just say I have […]
Comcast increased their Bandwidth again. The Internet giant has plans in Residential and Business Service from 12 to 50 MB per second. Prices range from $42.95 to $189.95 a month. Unfortunately, if you are a residential user, the faster speeds don’t mean a larger cap. While it doesn’t mean to download more, you can get […]
Something happened to me yesterday that not only took me by surprise, it threw my whole day off. My laptop stopped working. I closed the case to get ready to go to the coffee shop and the hard drive started clicking. When I turned the computer off then back on, the hard drive wouldn’t initialize. […]
Apple’s at it again – another event and another secret product that everyone is wasting bandwidth guessing what it is. “The Brick” as it was called in the early stages is actually going to be something with laptops. There are some that say multi-touch screens, others saying it’s a new type of Aluminum case. Whatever […]
Remember when you were in school and played small pranks on the teacher or substitute? I remember this one time a student took a kitchen timer, wound it up, then placed it in the drawer of the Science class. When the teacher started to hear the ticking, he ran frantically towards the door and slammed […]
It’s kinda cool to be able to play a game I can really get into. Since I don’t game that much I really need a lot to try something. For far this game is pretty cool – but don’t worry. I’ve only spent about 3 to 4 hours on the game. This weeks Bitstrips gives […]
It’s not only Jerry Seinfeld that was in a commercial with former CEO Bill Gates. Before Jerry was cast, I was the one that stepped in and bantored with Mr. Gates. Here is the story board. This is a 5 comic series.
Welcome to the Cloud. At least, my version. Cloud Computing is getting more and more press lately, so I thought this week’s Bitstrips should talk about this new idea. One thing you have to remember is in some ways you might already be on version of Cloud Computing. I know I am. I have a […]
Nowadays you don’t use a phone to call a person. That’s too passe. Nowadays, you txt, you twitter, you picture message or whatever. Only call when absolutely, positively necessary. Then,…. don’t call. This weeks Bitstrips we talk about messaging. Enjoy.
