- No idea, I expect there's a specific number of tweet load requests that can be sent to the server before displaying the message that no more can be loaded. I tend to find mine can go back maybe 3-6 hours depending on how active people in my feed have been. And that's about 775 people.
That said at times I've been able to load tweets that are a day or more old - so it may simply be a matter of process time that your requests get from the server based on how many requests it's processing at that time.1 likes10 hitsDec 26, 2012 | T III of Fera
- T IIIDoes anyone know if it's possible to, first, FIND a copy of standalone Win 7 still, and second, overwrite a machine that has factory Win 8 with it? I do NOT want a Win 8 computer, but I DO want a new PC this winter--old one's slowing down badly. (by Chrysicat)I'd say check Amazon/Ebay - but you'll likely also still find copies of Win 7 on sites that sell computer components for self builds such as scan.co.uk.
As for installing it, I assume it's the same as with any previous version of windows - stick the Win 7 disc in, reboot the PC, choose to install Win 7 and format the old install. If you don't already have partitions set up on your hard drive I'd suggest that you create two - one for your windows install and the rest for your documents/programs. That way any time you need to reinstall your operating system you can avoid losing your docs/programs.1 likes10 hitsDec 26, 2012 | T III of Fera
- Thomas D. SzewcDo you have a donate tab on your comic? Cause if so, I couldn't find it. (by brotonamobay)There used to be on the old website, but when I launched the new one I left it off because I heard there had been issues with using Paypal's donation system in that manner. I need to look into my options though, I'd like to have something.
Preferably I'd like to offer pay for pin-ups and bonus comics instead of just having a "tip jar" though.0 likes0 hitsDec 04, 2012 | Thomas D. Szewc of Alone in a Crowd
- Thomas D. SzewcSo If I've gather correctly,you're a English major, what would say to convince someone that degree is worth while? (by brotonamobay)Honestly, I'm not sure I would, unless they wanted to be a substitute teacher.
However, I will say what I learned from all those English classes in college has been incredibly valuable to my creative and business writing today. So I guess I would say an English degree is helpful if you like to write, but if you're looking to build a career off of it, more likely than not you'll be quite disappointed.0 likes0 hitsNov 19, 2012 | Thomas D.

No, in all seriousness, I either step away and doing something else for a while, discuss it with a close confidant and see if they create any sparks in my mind, or I move on to a different creative endeavor for a little while. That's always sorted itself out.
Best advice I ever heard was that writer's block isn't a lack if ideas. You have plenty of ideas, they're easy. Writer's block is the lack of the best execution of an idea.0 likes0 hitsNov 19, 2012 | Thomas D. Szewc of Alone in a Crowd

- Thomas D. SzewcHave you gotten any religious and/or moral objections to the content of your comic? (by brotonamobay)Believe it or not, for a comic that talks about the adult film industry a lot, and has discussed religion now and again, no, not really. The closest I've gotten is people saying they don't agree with Sadia or Desirae's view towards nudity and/ or sex. But not in a negative way towards the comic. Just disagreeing with their personal ideals. Though some people came back at Sadia in a pretty negative light.0 likes0 hitsNov 06, 2012 | Thomas D. Szewc of Alone in a Crowd

Considering that my RL last name has those two letters together, that's a pain. (by Chrysicat)I've always lived in the same area so my accent and location are very similar.

- I honestly don't think I could eat my own legs - I'd also expect there wouldn't be that much "good eating" on legs of all things. That and the fact that doing so would potentially cause death in a lot of other unpleasant ways, but with the additional pain of wounds and a lack of legs. So, eating your own legs would not only result in eventual starvation (assuming you run out of body parts to eat), but also dying from blood loss, infection, and even possibly from exhaustion and pain.0 likes0 hitsSep 17, 2012 | T III of Fera
- A few people have claimed that I do. Or at least I did when I was much younger. I sang at events and for fun a lot until 1997, when my gran passed away my drive to sing seemed to fade as well. I do still sing occasionally, I have been known to sing to Donna, and I do sing in the shower, or when I think no ones listening.

I don't think I've ever found an item of clothing that made me "happy". My approach to buying clothes is simply: 1) Is it black? 2) Is it comfortable/practical? 3) Can I buy a few of them and will they last? 4) Right, can I go look at the books now?
Seriously, my wardrobe is a series of identical sets of clothing. I tend to only buy new clothes for special occasions, or if even I don't believe myself any more when I say "well, it used to be black". I'm not kidding either, the jumpers that I wear when its cold were bought in 2001 as part of my school uniform for my final year.0 likes0 hitsAug 18, 2012 | T III of Fera

That's a really good question actually. I'm not sure how to answer it. Perhaps for me personally is getting my own home office to draw comics in. I no longer draw comics in the same room I sleep, watch DVDs, or play video games in, and I feel that will be beneficial to AIAC's production, and make it a stronger property in the end for the readers.0 likes0 hitsAug 07, 2012 | Thomas D.

- T IIIThis day, 4/20, should be the day that smokers should QUIT smoking instead of celebrating it, dontcha think? (by IAmDaBlitz)I had to look this up to find out what the hell you were talking about. By smoking, I'm guessing you mean tobacco, which has nothing to do with this 4/20 thing.
Personally I think the idea of having a day to celebrate smoking illegal substances OR a day to encourage people to quit smoking/eat healthily etc. is stupid and in the case of the latter two also rather condescending.
Whilst I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs, I can't really see the point in having a day dedicated to telling people who already know the dangers of what they're doing, about the dangers of what they're doing. It's not really enough to give them any drive to actually quit smoking- it's a personal choice and so long as they're aware of the risks they should have the freedom to choose to ignore them.
And let's be honest we already have a day that's dedicated to binge drinking. So why not another day dedicated to people making a complete arse out of themselves.1 likes1 hitsApr 20, 2012 | T III of Fera
