DrawnStrips Server

I started designing and coding DrawnStrips Server a few month back. The server is built to be compatible with any platform (OS X, Linux, Windows), and to be accessed from anywhere. As of today, you can build as many libraries as you want. Your comics are automatically loaded and updated everytime a new comic is detected. And the meta data populate the server. The server has been tested with around 4000 comics. I would like to know if there is enough readers interested by the project. If you are interested to see the server becoming a reality, contact me. In the mean time, please enjoy these pics,
