Comictastic: 'tastic or not so 'tastic?
I'm getting tired. It seems I've been reading discussions on the whole Comictastic thing for ... three or .. maybe 5 .. or 6 hours now. (link, link, link, link) It's silly. No, Comictastic and similar programs are not a "distribution system", they are NOT "redistributing" your comics - your web server is doing the distributing. Comictastic and similar programs don't even do "deep linking" which has been found illegal in at least one US court case. Comictastic and programs like them are simply specialized web browsers doing something that I have done manually in the past; requesting only the image of the comic from the web server because of bandwidth concerns.
