    I wonder what percentage of the readers have this comic delay problem. It must be small. For me the news post is always up several hours before the comic. I have to check the comic in the afternoon, whereas the post is usually up in the morning.

    You can find out for sure whether it's this problem or a delayed comic by checking SE++ for the new comic thread, which appears within minutes of a comic's posting.

    sometimes within seconds.

    I find it funny that SE is actually a more reliable place to find the comic than the main page.

    It's where I have to go about 50% of the time to see it :(

    Although I always check them early in the morning - seems to always work fine later in the day. I don't know what kind of server architecture / backend design is running so I couldn't guestimate on the time / effort it would take to fix such a small inconvenience

    just wanted to chime in and say that this has been a problem for me too. Most of the time the link in the news post takes me to the previous comic, and I just have to hit "Next ->" to get to the current one. The "comic" link at the top of the page exhibits the same behavior. I'm not complaining, just trying to give the peoples in charge some specifics about the behavior, cause this seems like it would be a headache to debug.

    I registered for the sole purpose of demanding that they make a 5 month story-arch involving pie. But I kind of got distracted.

    I think the newspost had directed me to wrong comics before, but it doesn't happen too often.

    The link in Tycho's newspost today is linking to This comic when I imagine it should be pointing to this one

    The comic link at the top of the sight is pointing to the correct comic, so I dunno if this is a typo or a bug, or whatever.

    Tycho's newspost has some fucked up links again.

    Note:

    http://admin.penny-arcade.com/news/show/22026

    I'm pretty sure the general public doesn't have admin access.

    Yeah, I know about the workaround. I just figured the technical people, assuming there are any around during the holidays, might want to know.
