In fact, there's no 'next' button until you get all the way back to the 21st. But then, the strips after the 21st don't appear in the drop-down 'select comic' list, so I suspect there's another glitch in the matrix, so those two things are probably related in some arcane manner. Probably, the black cat will keep re-appearing until Doc hits the server several times with his technician's rubber chicken and restores order in the universe.

When the system doesn't update, it usually means that my site wasn't accessible for a short while, right when the remote server was supposed to upload the new files.

Curt is often busy with other things, and can't always do a quick reset for me (and I have no access to it myself, other than to upload the comics) so in cases like that, I'll do a manual update.

The problem is, I have to go back and update the last three pages- the index page has to be ticked up to the next strip and date, "yesterday's" has to be ticked up, and then I need to copy-and-paste the day before's, also incrementing that up.

It's usually easy, takes just a few minutes, but this morning, as the past several mornings have been, was a bit of a cluster, with about forty-'leven things all vying for my attention. I got distracted by one of them halfway through the update, lost track of what I was doing, and went ahead and uploaded.

The links were out of whack a bit, but will be sorted out in this morning's update.

Sorry, just one of the many fun parts about running a webcomic.

Doc.
