I should probably note that the new page metadata is generated as I’m cleaning up the page – typically in one or two sessions – and is pasted in during the mass upload. The mass uploads have a creation period of a few minutes, compared to the days that a scene rework takes. I’ve been uploading in batches instead of one at a time for a few reasons – the big one is that it’s just easier. Between the straight-html archives requiring a full rebuild to keep their shit straight and the tedium of ganking the original metadata and post timing out of the old db… it’s better to do it all in one crunch.
That and unless I’m grinding out Brand New Pages, this means every update is several pages, instead of one every few days or weeks.
That said, Descent is up. I took a pass on the idea of nixing Tantek’s “fifth eye,” and sniped the first two pages of Convergence – they’re now descent -6- and -7- respectively. This means Descent will be 19 pages instead of 21. Unlike previous scenes, it won’t be One Big Upload – I’ll rewrite it as one big scene, but I’ll be breaking it into two or three chunks to make it more manageable.
Oh, and I don’t intend to get started on the reformatting until next weekend. I’ve slacked enough on some freelance obligations… time to pull my head out of this thing for a few days.
Well, the Photoshop end, anyway. I still gotta do the rewrite.
