No update? (6-1-07)

Looks like we still have Wednesday's Nukees up. Not that it isn't a fine comic, but I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms without my fix!!!

The Friday update finally went up, but no Monday update as of 7:15 PDT?

It's misdated. The current comic is the monday comic, but went up sunday.
If you think the current comic is friday's, you probably haven't seen the real friday comic yet, so go back and check.

It really was the Friday comic at that time. It has since updated to the Monday one. Looks like it either updated late, or I wound up retrieving a cached copy. (Either of which would be quite unusual in my experience.)

Hmm, once again it's 7:30 AM PDT and we have the previous copy of Nukees up. I'm beginning to see a pattern... (I'm guessing it will be up by the time I check back tonight after work.)

Ugh, this has been a bad week for screwing up updates.

As towr said, it wasn't updating late, it was updating early. Thus, you shouldn't have gotten "withdrawal symptoms." If anything, you should have gotten Nukees overdose.

It sounds probable that admist all the random updating, you may have missed one. Best to go back to Friday's strip and make sure. They are all numbered correctly now.

Yup, I had missed one! When I started surfing this AM, I realized that might have been the case (after looking at the "one day early" note again). So I went back and checked, and saw the one that I had missed.

Thanks, Gav!

This has not been a good month for the updater. (6-20-07 is late)

I guess the next newspost will be a triple D'oh.

Gav, should we e-mail you when the site doesn't update?

I'm not sure it would do any good and I'm not sure I really want to encourage a dozen people to email me all at once. Most of the time, if I've got enough Internet access to check my email, I'll have noticed one of the other tell-tales signs (but maybe not, who knows?) Maybe just one of you should be designated...

The problems this month were seriously compounded by the death of my phone, which is usually the first line of defense. I have a new phone on the way which should be here next week. I'll also add my email account to the list of things that are notified, so I stand a better chance of noticing if my phone fails. And that will preempt the need for any of you to email me (thus far, the notification program has not failed--just the final delivery point). In a couple cases this month, that would have shaved a half day off the time it took me to notice the problem.

I'm off to a two-day conference this weekend and will be back Tuesday night. Here's hoping nothing goes wrong with Monday's update... I'll be extra careful this time and triple check everything I do.
