Comic missing?

AiouaAioua Ora OccidensOra OptimaRegistered User regular
Monday's comic ( http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/10/11/ ) comes up as a red x for me. I've tried to get to it though my home internet, work, and my phone (comcast, qwest, and t-mo; respectively), so it's probably not something on my end.

life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze
bad things happen, no one knows why / the sun burns out and everyone dies

    I'm getting the same. It's also gone from the Monday SE++ comic thread. Maybe something to do with the recent forum downtime?

    Yes, but that's wednesday's comic, not monday's. Monday's comic is still not working for me

    Woops, er, I was testing you. That was a test. You passed the test.

    The front page types are aware of the problem, it'll be sorted out as soon as possible

    I'm having trouble imagining what kind of problem could be so catastrophic that it's impossible to fix a broken link to Monday's comic by Friday afternoon.

    Did a meteorite crash into a data center somewhere and for some reason it didn't make the news?

    Did a freakishly improbable set of cosmic rays erase the bits storing each and every copy of that comic in existence?

    Did the authors not draw it because they both were abducted by aliens at the same time and had their memory of the abduction replaced with the memory of producing their comic?

    Because the PA content and server setup isn't being run out of a personal home server - they have a CDN network/backend and a whole bunch of other stuff that can't turn on a dime.

    Don't trouble yourself with it then. These forums are a free service and if you feel the need to be obnoxious on them you can go elsewhere.

    Is this still broken for some people? Because Google Cache has it if you want to view it that way.

    It's working fine for me even after a cache refresh. If you're still having trouble, hit Ctrl+F5 on that page.

    Hate to make my first post a 'me too' but... 'me too'. I've tried several different browsers on two different computers with no positive results. I wasn't able to find it on Google Cache either.

    I'm in Canada and I can't make it work on any of my PCs in any of my browsers, even ones I've never used to visit the site before. Google Cache has the webpage but not the image.

    Big thanks and one more hooray for CrazyVincent!

    I can't see today's comic in Firefox or in IE. I also can't see last Friday's comic, even though I *could* see it on Friday. I can see last Wednesday's comic, but not last Monday's comic. Once I get to 'The Apex' I seem to be able to see that and all the earlier comics.

    *edit* I'm not getting a red X, I just get a blank space where the comic should be. This is also happening in the New Comic thread in SE++

    I still can't see the MOnday comic (though I'll stop bothering to try now that I've seen it in CrazyVincent's post), for the record, I've not only tried it on multiple computers, I've tried it on two completely independent internet providers (both in Canada) though I can't see how it's a connection issue as other images apparently hosted on the same domain seem fine.

    CDNs are like a huge, complex machine. Takes a little bit for the goop it processes to work its way through all the pipes.

    Screw up a publish, and you have to do it again.

    And the pipes are all over the planet. When your tube gets its allotment of delicious goop will depend on what priority (bandwidth, space, other stuff) your local node(s) gets in the CDN.

    A "domain" is just a reference to some IPs and some contact info. It could point to anything at any time depending on various things. The one that works made it through all the tubes fine. The other one apparently has not.

    Helluva goop quota, then. I asked someone in California (near LA) who doesn't read the comic to check and he says the file isn't there either.

    Well then I don't know. I still don't see it either all the way over in the dreadscape of Georgia.

    I don't know who's responsible for handling that part of the site, but you'd want to e-mail them with your ISP and location.
