GOSUB OUTSIDE

BASIC -Part 260: Is OverLester all bluster, or does he mean business? He certainly has the light show to back it up.

In other news, in my continued efforts to rescale each episode; I'm now up to ep#119. Almost half way!!

LET Y =UNEXPECTEDLYHIGH

BASIC -Part 259: Miriam has had rather a shock. Still, not to worry - her pirate friends are on their way, right?

FOR CHARGE=A TO B STEP LEASTRESISTANCE

BASIC -Part 258: In which we note the efficacy of rubber soled pirate boots.

10 IF RECURSIVE=1 THEN GOTO 10

BASIC -Part 257: He can't possibly have the means to do what he wants, not after all our heroes have done.  Well...http://www.basiccomic.com/comics/257.html

LET OBJECTIVE(LESTER)=RIDICULOUS

BASIC -Part 256: So that's what he wants, the terrifying little gnome!  Incidentally, we're a binary multiplier again!  I did originally hope to finish the comic at page 256 just to be neat but it's all expanded slightly.  I'm sure you don't mind :)

REM INTENT

BASIC -Part 255: In which Wyndham asks questions. Does he get answers? Well, computer storage wasn't too fast back then.

IF METALMONSTER NOT=TOILETS THEN BASICPLAN$="GOOD"

BASIC -Part 254: Standing in the presence of the huge brass nude leviathan, BASIC has an idea.  Just not a very good one.  Incidentally, I should add that the character of Lester (and the OverLester) was devised years ago and so any resemblance to real-life chunky dictator wanna-be's is purely coincidental!

FOR POINT=RETURN+1

BASIC -Part 252: The door is open! What on earth is waiting inside; a little incontinent man..or something even more sinister??

Thanks for all the positive feedback about the bigger artwork.  I'm now going back through the comic, replacing the artwork (and removing the ads).  It's a vast job.  As of this week, I've managed to edit back to episode 210.  I'll keep on trucking with it.  I've got something lovely lined up for the front page.

PAUSE 1

BASIC - Part 251: So we're here. THE door. Wyndham, understandably, has reservations.  Clever Wyndham.

FOR X=800 TO 1000 STEP 1: NEXT X

BASIC -Part 250: We've hit the full quarter millennium.. or something.  Anyway, to celebrate, I'm trying out a new look.  The comic is bigger, a good 200 pixels wider than it was before.  Mainly because the whole focus of this comic should be.. well.. the comic.  So I've ditched all banner ads from the page to fill it with lovely content.

With that in mind, I will add that this also means that I'll be getting NO ad income for the site (tip jar - hint hint :) ) but I hate banner ads as much as you do.

If you like/hate the new look, please let me know in the comments or on twitter (@basiccomic).
