    Hey webmaster/moderators - forum or browser bug. The last word in my last post is showing up twice. "guess." on one line and again as the only word on the next line. Latest MSIE, win7 64bit pro, all updates/patches applied. This shows up only with certain browser widths, and if I narrow the window then right before it switches to just putting the word on the next line with a narrower window, it displays the word twice.
    I'm not seeing that issue with your post. Try clearing your cache and try different browsers. If you still have the issue, there's a bug report forum here where your report will be seen by the technical staff.

    For the very large number of people who are complaining that the update should be up, here's a recap of the last episode to tide you over.

    On another note, I was watching me some Arrested Development season 3 the other day, and they've got some similar pineapple themed stuff around. I don't think it's the same house, but it would be cool if it were.

    Also they got their graphic wrong, it should be PDT ;)

    Seems to be some disagreement amongst internet time conversion sites. I'm getting PDT as being 7 hours behind GMT which would make 7.30pm PDT = 2.30am GMT = 3.30am BST. Which is correct?

    The problem is that they wrote PST, which is wrong. Converting from PDT to BST is the correct conversion you're looking for.

    If you go to here http://www.timeanddate.com/time/map/ you can mouse over the map and see the current time for a given place. Note that Seattle is on PDT right now, not PST.

    Tons of people regularly screw up timezones and assume that PST = PDT and EST = EDT when they are not the same. This makes conversions annoying since most conversion software recognizes those differences, so if you convert PST to BST you will get a different result than converting PDT to BST.

    Unless @GrahamS is purposefully screwing with us, and he really *does* mean PST and not PDT, but I'm pretty sure that's not the case and it's just a mistake on the part of whomever made that graphic.

    Definitely most interested in Abby's comic, closely followed by Katie's. Maki's comic seemed too familiar/similar to a lot of other comics, and a little disjointed between strips sometimes.

  • tobiwantobiwan Registered User regular
    Thanks Zerzhul. I'm still making that 2.30am GMT (3.30am BST for London)? It's currently 7.27pm in England and 11:27am (PDT) in Seattle?

  • chasabchasab Registered User regular
    I think after reading the strips each contestant submitted this is a two horse race between Abby and Katie. None of Maki's made me laugh out loud the way katie, and abby's did.

    I suppose that's the tradeoff for having to pay up to 10 bucks for a gallon of milk? :P

    The front page of the site says PDT, so there's that.

  • parmeisanparmeisan Registered User regular
    On another note, Maki looks kind of horror-movie freaky here: http://penny-arcade.com/uploads/patv/ss/hero/hero_shirt.jpg

    Actually, everybody but Erika looks just a little sinister in that light.

    That Hawaii....

    While waiting for the final Strip Search to come out I updated My Wastebasket of Broken dreams to do more, now you can redraw out of it and it has more words to choose from, I'm still playing with it and want to add more features but it is rather fun roleplayingamer.com/index.php?page=rpgComic&comic=49

    Since I can't wait for The finale to come out it seems to keep me happy till it airs, it's becoming a fun app game tool but it's just a fan hobby project.

    It will be weird to see a winner declared tonight SS has been going on for so long it will be strange for it all to be over, I hope they have a season two.

    i feel like maki's is the most versatile and the only one that can deal with current events. i also felt i actually had a feel for his characters as abby's were non-existent in her strips and though katie's featured malachi well the rest had about the personality of the filler students on the simpsons which doesn't mean abby and katie's strips don't have potential, it just wasn't featured. maki's was also the only one to get me to laugh as projectile vomit's hillarious where abby's usual humor was disappointingly absent and generally felt like a less interesting jhonen vasquez homage and i can't really figure out the tone katie's going for. basically just wanted to say "go maki!"

    @tobiwan: Yeah, I think that's right. Those saying 4:30 were perhaps using PST. Or seeing something that neither of us is.

    Maybe this will help: I am expecting the show to be put up 3 hours and 40 minutes from now.

    This finale has been really poorly handled. They skipped a day in their schedule, split the last episode in half (unnecessarily) and now they're delaying the second half until it's actually closer to Thursday than Tuesday in some time zones.

    These decisions have taken away much of the series' momentum.

    Remember there's still time to vote in the poll. When you vote VOTE ALEX.
    Seriously this is just too good of a trolling opportunity to waste.

    I think of that the last episode. I could have been using that line for months. I suck.

  • zWolfzWolf Registered User regular
    So like... an hour and a half-ish, from right now... right?

    and is it going to be 'posted' or do we tune in to 'Twitch TV' or something? I really wish that stuff was on the main front page.. sigh... or even the 'airing every Tue & Thu' tag at the top... if that had more instructions it would have been nice.. but, at least I have my fellow 'comment-er fans' to help me get to the party on time!

    anyone know what I need to do to see the show? thanks in advance.

    And GOOD LUCK you three!

    ...but especially Abby.... :-P

    As far as I know it's a normal episode, so go to the normal site to see it in about an hour. Me, I'm in line to see it streamed "live", but it's still a prerecorded episode, I just get to watch it with a buncha other StripSearch fanatics including some of the contestants and PA staff.

    The live finale screening is not being streamed, but it is being recorded for several purposes. You’ll see it somehow

    So... if Mike said there wasn't a winner yet, and the live event is just a screening of the last episode, does that mean we're still going to have no idea who won after tonight?

    At the last minute Lexxy is brought back into the competition and declared the winner, in the end confirming all the conspiracy theories and proving Penny Arcade is actually a front for the Illuminati. ALL HAIL LEXXY!

    @Graham_LRR 42s

    I think there’s some confusion on the live #StripSearch finale. The winner is announced IN the episode, not live here. You will all see it!

    aaand Graham read my mind and answered my question even though I didn't actually ask him on Twitter. He's magic like that.
