Comic Alert!

You may have noticed the new "Comic Alert!" link on the left there. If you like to read comic strips (both syndicated and webcomics), this is the site for you. You can "subscribe" to various comics, and receive an email update once a day listing all your comics that have been updated. Or, like I do, you can use the custom RSS feed to be notified of new comics when they appear. You can see the comics to which I subscribe if you view my feeds on Bloglines (links appear both to the left and up top).

The guy who runs the site is pretty cool, too; I emailed him recently about a small error in the parser that was scraping PvP, and he fixed it right away. He even added Spamusement at my request.

So go check it out! It even suggests new comics you might like based on your current favorites (taking your age and gender into account if you provide that information). All in all, an awesome site that earns its place in my RSS Hall of Fame. Or at least my blogroll.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
