Conclusion - A Final Gift
It's been a long ride.

2214 Started in February 2003. Through many starts and stops over this past decade, Ravenna, Bus, Saja, Malachi, Virulyde, Azurat, and the rest of the cast has experienced quite an adventure.

Many loose ends are left open - intentionally.

I hope you have enjoyed 2214. I have brought the story to a conclusion at this point. The comic will remain here indefinitely in the archives.

Ravenna, Bus, and Azurat have unexpectedly received a final gift from the Fumacite trio. Aboard their vessel, the Hovercrane, the Zetsfir tower has suddenly been activated in order to send them back to their own time on the planet Earth.

Although this web comic has ended, if there is enough interest I will continue this story in another web comic in the future.

The site's HTML5 revisions are done!

The HTML5 upgrades on the site are complete. What does this mean? Basically, it means you no longer need a Flash plugin for the music and video pages. In fact, I have removed all Flash from the site entirely.

If you haven't already heard, major web browsers are starting to deprecate all non-encrypted HTTP traffic. This means many web site owners will be required to obtain certificates for their web sites. Since this site does not have e-commerce or other features that require personal information, I have never implemented HTTPS (encryption) on this site. Now that Mozilla and Google are going to start "warning" users if a site uses plain HTTP, I'm going to have to start taking steps to implement HTTPS. Personally, I see this move toward a de facto requirement - mandatory certificates - as something similar to a protection racket. Encryption is not necessary for all types of web sites. This coercion on the part of large web companies bothers me; "good" certificates are quite expensive.

(Hey, this is a rant column, after all.)

Anyway, webmaster gripes aside, now that some coding revisions are finished, I've planned a couple new music projects for this summer. Additionally, page 6 of O.T.E. will be finished eventually although web comics in general are on the back burner for the foreseeable future.
