    Default Erfworld Moves to Tues-Sat Schedule

    Just as the title says; effective immediately, Erfworld is moving to a Tuesday/Saturday schedule, rather than a Tuesday/Thursday.

    Rob tells me it was partly as a result of fan feedback, which requested a shorter gap between installments, and partly as a result of his apartment building catching on fire and him thus not getting this Thursday's strip done in time. (For those that don't know, Rob letters the strip after Jamie does the art, and so is the last to touch it.)

    Holy crap, is Rob okay?

    The new update schedule ought to be nice. I don't have very many comics that update on Saturday.

    Yes, I like it too. Well, 4 days of waiting is still better than 5 days, isn't it?

    I'm fine, everyone. It's been a horrendous inconvenience, but fortunately that's all. There's a long and interesting story, but that's the short of it.

    Well, our slaves are safe, and that's the important part.

    Wait, did I say slaves? I meant: 'no one was hurt, and that's the important part'.

    And that's exactly what I said if you know what's good for you!

    I'm confused.

    How is there a shorter gap between Tues-Sat than Tues-Thurs?

    I sympathize; my own apartment burned at the end of June. Fortunately, my computer's hard drives and almost all my books were salvageable. It makes a horrid mess. I hope you didn't lose much.

    There's not. There's a shorter gap between Saturday and Tuesday than between Thursday and Tuesday. Before, you had to wait 2 days, then 5 days. Now, you have to wait 4 days then 3 days. It's more balanced.

    it is a good thing we keep you webcomic writers around. Nobody would do our math for us otherwise.

    Rob, are you going to share the story?

    Of course, if some people weren't too darned lazy, we could get Erfworld every day.

    Yeah, this kinda bites - I only read the comics at work, so I'll have two comics to read on Monday, and none to read on Friday - provided the Giant doesn't post Fridays comic by 6pm Est.

    You should enlist a once weekly comic to post on Thursdays, so I can keep my Friday fix :)

    How about this:

    Order of the Stick: Mon - Wed - Fri

    Erfworld: Tue - Sat

    Some other webcomic : Thur - Sun

    Yes, I should be locked up in a mental institution. But I want webcomics all week round, and Dominic Deegan isn't enough.

    At present I only read three comics that update consistantly, OoTS, Erfworld, and Goblins, was kind of nice having Monday through Sat with solid updates. Now I'll have a midweek gap, and an extra one on Sat, albeit last three weeks I've not been able to read Goblins till Sunday, I kind of prefered the old schedule, but will eventually adjust to this one.

    Great horrors!

    I've had two apartment buildings burn down ... both after I'd moved out of them, fortunately.

    Apt #1 burned down when someone left a battery on the patio in sunlight. It exploded. Scratch one building.

    Apt #2 burned down when a pre-teen was smoking a cigarette and, when seeing mom come along, threw the cigarette someplace it didn't belong. Scratch another.

    Apartment fires are *no fun*. Glad to hear you got out okay.

    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    Hey, I'm the one with the fiery horse fetish, not you. Keeping the midnight oil burning is okay; burning down your apartment is not.

    Glad to hear you're okay!

    Yeah... just because comic has been posted late a few times is no reason to hold Rob's feet to the fire.
