boot_error: Not new, just more of the same. - Comic Number 426 - End

End Tuesday 5th 2007f June 2007

Visit the new comic:

And this is the end of boot_error.

I've decided to stop updating for a number of reasons really...the art style of the comic is a little restrictive and since the very first boot_error strip I made on the 6th of June, 2004 (the strips I made at the beginning of the comic's life weren't good, so they weren't included in the archive when the aqua green site launched) my art has improved a fair bit beyond what is essentially a copy and paste comic. Also, the comic doesn't really have any themes which are close to my heart. Don't get me wrong, I love duck-tape and pandas but I can't express 'me' with boot_error. There are currently no plans to release any more volumes.

With that explanation out the way, I'd like to thank the friends that have made the ride a bigger joy than the tiny4k destination. First and foremost, I'd like to give the BIGGEST thanks to Glen 'ReadMe' Mailer who has been the code gorilla for the site since the start. Without him, boot_error would not exist, no word of a lie. He first coded a neat little menu for the website at the beginning, then a simple comic navigation script, then a website, then an uber comic navigation script and so many other things here and there. I promise you amigo, I'll pay you back for all you've done one day.

What is a comic without readers? I sure don't make these strips only to entertain myself (there are better ways to do that) and I'm bloody chuffed so many people enjoy reading boot_error. I appreciate every comment you make (apart from those bloody annoying "first view, first comment" rubbish you guys love to pull), whether it be good or bad, I truly do. The internet is great for that sort of feedback. Thank you, thank you, thank you : D

And now for all the other chaps I'd like to thank in no particular order: Surpass Hosting for the great hosting and ever helpful customer service, Zogger for recommending Surpass but also helping out with early DNS questions, Chris Kirk for converting my design of the current site into a working template and for being a great comicomrade, Bev for being there from the start with his brother-like comic Chooken (which you must check out), Animus for being another one of the first webcomic creator friends I made when I started out, Lulu for being a great print-on-demand service, Patrick Findlay for being the man behind the always awesome Thing, Travis Riddle for being another comicomrade who I always enjoy chatting with, Macromedia (now Adobe) for making such a great program as Fireworks MX, Madsen for being a courteous dude, Eyeskream Webcomic Creators Group for accepting me into their awesome community, Lem for being the best damn British webcomic out there and for being a memorable table-neighbour, Phil for no good reason, Joe for letting me use his computer to upload a strip one time when my internet exploded, Jon Scrivens for being another comicomrade and jointly staying up late as we finish our comic strips we should've started earlier, Chris (and James, even if we don't talk, haha) for being another comicomrade and finally all, or should that be any, of my friends and family that read.

Of course the comic bug doesn't leave the body so easily and I've started another webcomic called Graff. It's a far cry from boot_error, with a more free art style and about graffiti culture, something I'm 'into' in a big way. It won't be for everyone but if you like your graffiti/street art, you should definately check it out.

It's been truly nifty : )

Its been a damn good few years. Must've been hard to stop this, but I'm glad you didn't get ruled by numbers or anything stupid. Graff looks really fun, can't wait to see where it goes, and hope to still see you at UKWCT'08


The king is dead, long live the king, or whatever it is you're supposed to shout at these sort of things :P

Well, that was abrupt. Although, it did end like most of the storylines in the comic...seriously, the only bad thing I can say about this comic.

This comic has served me well this past three years, and I wish you the best of luck with Graff and everything else.

Curse you, lack of April Fool's Day! There's now no reason for... -bursts out in tears-

Good luck in...whatever you're going to do now. We're gonna miss you like hell.

And the art style, by the way? I LOVED it! It's what hooked me on b_e in the first place!

I never really commented, but I must say that I loved Boot_error. It's sad to see it's end, but I wish you good luck with Graff and all your project!

Killing the characters doesn't seem very b_e. I'm sure that if a closure comic were done, Horizon would go bankrupt upon finding that all they did was make duct tape, and that Ed was buying all of it on company credit.
