Development page update

First, development page updated! (patrons only):

https://www.asequentialart.com/anightattheqoolquasarTest.php

So, I know I have been AWOL for a couple of weeks. I have been unable to work on art, but I have been indeed working on the site behind the scenes, on the programming side. I had to. As the site grows in length I am starting to have trouble with some low-end browsers that cannot manage the bigger page size. A solution to that would be to introduce lazy loading.

The problem is that the current script that fetches the images and other assets in order to display the comic page was originally kind of inefficient, (It's some of the first code I ever wrote when I was starting to learn programming) and for that reason it makes hard to implement new features. (And I have lots of new features that want to implement!). 

I have been improving my Javascript skills and working on a new version that uses helper functions and is shorter and much easier to maintain. It's something that won't be very visible to the average user, but hopefully will result in faster updates in the future, and will allow me to add lazy loading.


Now that I have crossed that bridge I will be updating this week the old comic pages with the newer code and then I can resume regular updates. Please bear with me a bit more.

I have been wondering if my readers would be interested on more posts talking about coding for the comic and other technical stuff. Maybe I could ask that with a poll?

Thanks for reading!
