Artists are hard to wrangle. We are an easily distracted bunch. Worse than cats.
I’ve put SelfControl on my Mac to block social media sites and some other time sinks. It’s a site blacklist I compiled myself; not a pre-installed set. Unfortunately, when the SelfControl block is turned on, it mucks with stock photography sites that I haven’t blacklisted. Most stock sites will load but their image libraries come up blank; Gettyimages.com will not load at all.
I tried using AntiSocial as well and it also mucks with stock photo sites. (And isn’t as effective or straightforward as SelfControl.)
Anybody have any clues about how to get around this? I’ve Googled and consulted the blocking software FAQs and come up blank. There must be *some* connection between one of the sites I’ve blocked and the image libraries of the stock photo sites, but damned if I know how to find it.
Other than this weird problem, I highly recommend SelfControl for Mac users! :U
Edit: on my Windows machine, I use ColdTurkey, and while it’s visually wonky and runs a bit weird on opening, it’s hardcore and super effective. For sites I never want to see (clickbaiters, content scrapers, hate sites), I just block them in the HOSTS file. I don’t have the stock-photo problem in Windows.
Edit2: AntiSocial and SelfControl (and ColdTurkey) are systemwide blockers, which is why I would rather stick with them instead of using multiple browser-specific plugins.
Have you tried Pomodoro? It’s what I use and I love it. Essentially, it blocks all your blacklisted sites for 25 minutes, gives you a 5 minute break, and then blocks the blacklisted sites again. You can customize the lengths of time for work and break. I like it because I need some distractions or I’ll get antsy and wander away. I haven’t noticed it ever messing with any sites that aren’t blacklisted.
I don’t usually plug non-comic junk here but yesterday PoseTool 3D for Android saved me a giant headache and helped me redraw a difficult pose/angle I’d been hacking away at for several hours. Paid for itself in 5 minutes.
I wish I’d had this yesterday ahhhhh but better late than never and I know I’ll use this in the future.
This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.
"Are you laughing or crying, snothead?" asks my roommate.
This is my favorite scene from this show.
Aw dangit. I’ve been having website troubles ever since Lesbian Pirates went off the web. Everyone flooded in to download the comics and it drained my bandwidth, so I’ve been struggling with the host to get more. I’m contacted them about fixing this and they’re pretty good about fixing problems quickly. Shouldn’t be more than a day or two.
christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
if you think all boobs are supposed to be perky and big with perfectly centered nickel-sized nipples you probably have never actually seen a boob in real life because boobs are diverse as frick
Or maybe they’ve only seen one boob
not even a set of boobs because boobs are usually 2 different sizes
just one boob
all by its lonesome
a singular boob floating aimlessly through the void
HOW IS THERE A GIF FOR THAT
I’ll look into making ebooks. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do anyways. If it does happen, it won’t be for a while since I have so much other stuff on my plate right now. But you can buy physical copies of my books here. Darlin’ It’s Betta in color or black and white, and all 6 of the old volumes of YU+ME, though I imagine those won’t be as popular what with the new, nicer, cheaper versions coming out soon.
