Hey, a bunch of my friends at school got the Wasteds Talent patch at the release party a while back. Unfortunatley, I hadn't heard of it yet. But since I saw/bought the book from red sales I've subscribed to the RSS feed of the comic and enjoy it everytime a new strip is posted.
Is there any chance we (us late adopters) could see this patch available in the shop? Ever since I saw the patch on a friend's Red I've been kicking myself for not knowing about Wasted Talent sooner.
I read a lot of web-comics (probably because I don't really have a life) and I've noticed that one very common occurance is a random comic button. I'm not sure what would go into making a random comic button for WT but I think it would be fun. I love the new website (although I guess it's not really all that new now) and I love the comic ^_^.
Not really a technical support question, but I'm looking for a blog template or site that I can integrate into a tab on a webpage the way the Wasted Talent Blog does, so I thought I'd ask the source. All the blogs/blogging tools I've found so far create standalone blogs. Where's the integration? Where's the love?
Your sage advice is as welcome as your stylish steel-toes. :)
It was brought to my attention that the donation option when your checking out through the Wasted Talent shop hasn't been working, the amount you choose to donate is not being charged.
Thanks for all those who have ordered Jam/Angela’s new book and for also choosing to give her a donation for her hard work. Unfortunately there was an unknown bug in the shop system with the donation option. PayPal wasn’t getting the total with the donation because of a weird way that line items work with PayPal.
I just placed an order for one of the pre-order Aritst Editions (order #91!), and I clicked the Donation button to add $5 to the order.
However, when I got through to PayPal, it did not include the $5 donation, only the cost of the book + shipping. I sent the $5 in a seperate PayPal payment, but just thought you should know the shop donation function did not work.
I was wondering how much work has gone into making the website secure? For example have you made sure to save the passwords in strong hashes like SHA-1 (instead of just storing them)? There are other things to watch out for, most prominently SQL-injection (if you are using an SQL database, which I think is the case) and Cross-scripting attacks? Also there are a good number of spam comments at the end of some comics, but there is no "report post" feature yet...
