Very apt for the strip and the sad news.
Or: “Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder” for all other cases ;-)
GC are still experiencing some issues, I refreshed Wednesdays strip at around 06:05 GMT and got the ‘Next Day’ and ‘Last Strip’ links available, so I clicked on them to bring up Thursdays (Todays) page. I got this error message:
500 Server Error
Inside every server there is an internal error, just waiting for its time to shine. This one’s ours. We vow to cease its infernal shining ASAP.
It cleared by 06:08 and I got todays page. They’re still having some problems that are affecting the sites function, hopefully they’re well on the way to getting the issues tracked down and resolved.
Time For Thursday Felines!
TFTFV!#1 – Sound
TFTFV!#3 – Messi (Sound)
Bonus Thursday BUNNIES!!
Yes, it’ll take a while before they can trap and patch all the bugs and issues.
My cat Ivy was commandeering the bag a delivery came in this morning as her own ‘Purrsonal’ Space ;-)
The strips roll over here at 06:05 (Approx) GMT as I’m in the UK, so I get the new strip first thing in the morning.
I’ve lost two cats to brain tumours, it’s never good :-(
The issue was directly after rollover, it’s sorted itself out now. I posted the comment because a lot of people aren’t waiting directly for rollover as I do, and so wouldn’t have seen the glitch. I mentioned the glitch because it points to GC are still having problems with their backend after the site outage a couple of weeks ago, and we may see other issues in the near future until they’ve finally tracked down and patched all the issues that will have propagated from that outage.
GC currently has an interesting glitch, and it’s now 5 minutes past rollover. The comics have updated, but my ‘My Comics’ page hasn’t, it’s still displaying Tuesdays date and comics. The arrow links to ‘next day’ are working on the individual strips so I can see the new strips, though the main ‘Next Day’ arrow at the top is still greyed out. Also, when I refreshed this TC page to show Wednesdays strip just after the rollover time it brought up the right date, but no strip. It took two minutes to show the strip after further refreshes, but my ‘My Comics’ page was still displaying the 29th. It’s all updated and working now, it took about seven or eight minutes to propagate through, but my point is that it looks like GC are still having issues with their backend, so I would expect further problems in the near future.
