Les Widget Andertoons

One of the craziest parts of having my cartoons online is finding stuff about them in different languages.

I took a little French in college, but I can’t translate all of this:

Affichez sur votre blog une bande-dessinée différente chaque jour, selon un catégorie que vous aurez choisit précédement. Les BD Andertoons sont utilisées dans le célèbre Reader’s Digest, dans le Wall Street Journal et dès maintenant sur votre blog Typepad.

Another blog has this to say:

pour faire apparaître une bande-dessinée chaque jour

Anyone know enough French to help me out?

Daily Cartoon Typepad Widget Now Available

Tp Logo Hirez-1

For some time I’ve made available a free daily cartoon for blogs and websites. (If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out!)

It’s pretty simple to utilize; you just cut and paste some HTML code and it’s up and working.

Today, if your blog is hosted via TypePad (like everyone’s fave cartoon blog here), the news is even better.

I’m proud to unveil my TypePad “Andertoons Daily Cartoon” Widget! Just choose a category, click “Install”, sign in to your TypePad account, and you’re done! It’s that easy!

Plus, act now and we’ll include two bottles of our pet stain remover, with perma-foam applicator, absolutely free!*

This is our first widget, so we’ve done a lot of testing, and the results have been wonderful.

So, all your TypePad-ers, give it a try, and I hope you enjoy it!

Wimic Widget? Wow!

One of the things I love about my new Mac and its Tiger OS are the Widgets.

For those of you not in the know, there’s this kinda hidden screen of little useful items you can call up at a moment’s notice. Since Tiger came out there’s been a ton of these things created for just about every conceivable purpose. (Right now mine include a system stats ap, a calculator, the latest headlines from the New York Times, and a Magic 8 Ball.)

The new Wimic Widget seems destined to be a favorite as well. It gives you your daily cartoon fix from any number of sources (UComics.com, Comics.com, etc…) and seems to be customizable.

I do have to wonder how the syndicates make money off of this (my own free cartoon feature works on a different premise), but I’m really enjoying it.

For those of you still working in Windows, I pity you. I really do. (Did you see this?)
