Linking Bug on Homepage

Instant_AwesomeInstant_Awesome Registered User new member
Apologies in advance if this has already been reported.

On the homepage, Tycho usually links from his post to the associated comic, which I tend to follow to enjoy the context. However, lately his "comic link" (usually in 1st paragraph) has not been linking to the associated comic. Instead, it is linking to last year's post on the same day (or close to it).


Example 1: 2/23/2009 - Titled "Context"

Link in 1st paragraph should go here:

http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/2/23/

Instead, it goes here:

http://www.penny-arcade.com/2008/02/22/


Example 2: 2/20/2009 - Titled "Step Three: Profit"

Link in 1st paragraph should go here:

http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/2/20/

Instead, it goes here:

http://www.penny-arcade.com/2008/2/20/


I'm not sure why this is occurring, but I'm imagining it is a buggy script. Any ideas?

    I think Tycho's forgotten what year it is.

    Any chance of Alphamonkey doing an upgrade?

    And that he's supposed to be linking a comic, not a newspost.

    What comic, Penny Arcade is just a bunch of words. There are no images

    Tycho is dumb sometimes. I'll fix the links :wink:

    I think he's still waiting for a stable release of the Tycho 2.10.5 firmware.

    Ah ok, thanks. It just seemed too consistent to be human error to me. I give people the benefit of the doubt too much sometimes. I guess that's my human error.

    Also, I just assumed Gabe and Tycho are infallible.
