It's not showing up on my computer, there's just a little box with the red X

It seems to not be loading, only a little red X.

Alas, it is a broken image for I as well.

Dude, where my comic? :smalltongue:

Seriously, though, it's not showing up here, either.

It appears I'm having the same issue.

I'm sure he is now aware of the problem and will fix it shortly.

Same issue. Hopefully he's checking this thread and will fix it soon. He probably just made a mistake uploading the image.
Edit:
When I try to View Image in Chrome or Firefox, I get the following:
Yeah, I got the same thing when I tried that.

Ditto here.

Typical! I notice the new comic quick enough to make a comment on the first page and it's the first time I can ever remember where there's a problem with the comic!

Can't see it either. On a Mac, if that helps.

If anyone is confused, the page links to the directory for the comics instead of the image itself. It won't matter what you're using to view it.

MoonCat

Yup. Borked here too. Thank goodness, I thought it was me. I look forward to it though!

Thanks for the speedy update!

It appears that the img tag for this comic only refers to the images directory, and not the actual image file... ie, img src="/comics/images/", where normally it says img src="/comics/images/blahblahblahblahblah.gif".

It seems like quite a few people are experiencing this issue, however, and I'm hopeful it will be resolved by the time I finish typing this.

Well said, sir.

When I try to view the images info, it says the image is located at http://www.giantitp.com/comics/images/. Which is weird, because it should be http://www.giantitp.com/comics/images/something.jpg (or gif or whatever The Giant uses). I'm pretty sure the image was never actually uploaded to the server.
Edit: Wow, I got ninja'd by people who got ninja'd.

Oh man, what an amazing comic. Best one ever produced I would say!

Not really, same problem as the rest of you.

By the inverse ninja law, that at least means none of them can hurt you.

of course, we could always speculate on why Rich put up the smily he did for this thread, and what that might mean in the comic...

I'm fairly certain this is not the case. The problem is probably either that The Giant didn't upload the file properly, or he didn't link the page to the file properly. As far as I can tell, the comic pages use a script to grab the image from the server. But the link that page 806 has is to a directory, not an image. It tries to render it anyways, but because it basically found an empty file it shows the little error box.

Durkon is in it, and something scary happens at the end.

Okay, people. You need to totally not hit that link over and over again, like some crystal-starved freak whose life is circling the drain. That will only slow the server down.

Hope the issue is resolved as soon as it's convenient.

I suppose all we can do now is form a circle, join hands and pray to Banjo for deliverance from these dark times.........
Or burn and pillage the Playground. Really, either works for me :smallbiggrin:
But seriously I think the problem will be solved shortly.

I have a feeling that he who must be named (the Sheriff) might have something to say about that....

Anyway, you really had me on that one. I guess I have to wait even longer, thinking about what the name could possible relate to.

I was scared to look at this thread. If the problem was with my computer, then I would be spoiled. But I decided to take that risk to make sure that the problem wasn't with my computer.

I do appreciate how quickly the comic almost came up. I really wasn't expecting a comic this soon, so I wasn't disappointed.

Noooooo! Why, why, why is it not showing up? (I know, I know, technical difficulties happen. Doesn't make it any less tragic, though.)

The culprit code is
<img src="/comics/images/"/> The filename is missing.

I also have a broken image. (I'm using Google Chrome & Windows 7)

Gwynfrid

OK, the problem hasn't been solved after 30+ minutes, so it may be serious. Let's prepare our minds and bodies for a long wait. (Goes to make a big steaming pot of extra-strong coffee).

Meanwhile, we can always speculate on what's happening in this strip. We have 2 hints: "Holy Enunciation" and ":smalleek:". What can that mean ?

My take: Durkon tries to utter a Holy Word, but due to his accent no one understands it, so Sabine and Elan are unaffected by it.

A cookie to whoever comes up with the craziest theory !

Usually when this happens (webcomic artist forgetting to link image after uploading it) I copy the image location of the previous page and paste it in the address bar with the image number incremented by one. Sadly, OotS pages appear to have meaningless gibberish as their image name. :smallfrown:

Lovely to find someone else agrees. I thought it was just me :smallsmile:

On another note, is it 'talk like a pirate' day already and no one bothered to tell me??!
I always get left out of all the cool stuff :smallfrown:

Orzel
2011-09-19, 05:37 PM
Instead of saying "I can't see it too", I will comment on the title....

If Durkon loses his accent, he's dead to me as it would put him in the black hole of boring.

Problem easily solved, I just hadn't bothered to look at it to see if it was loaded.

I'm going to start a new discussion thread as a result and lock this.
