Long time reader, first time caller.

Using Chrome 32.0.1700.107m (latest stable channel build) no images appear above. Individual jpg urls go to the (amusing) 404 page.

Using IE8, same PC (Win7) they work fine.

Firefox v15.0 - broken
Firefox v24.0 - works fine
Firefox v27.0 - works fine

Opera 12.01 - works fine

I'd love to know what causes this browser specific weirdness if you pin it down.

[I'm using the same Chrome version on Windows 7 and seeing it fine. -- Scott]

Scott,

Today I see the strips. Great commentary.

I tried yesterday - couldn't see them. Tried this morning - couldn't see them. Ran a Windows update - the strips magically appeared! Love the strips! Do Califorinia's water shortage. Personally, I plan to water the lawn with bottles of Aquafina.

Follow-up: I'm using Chrome v32.0.1700.107m on a Win7 PC. I tried clearing my browser cache, and running in Incognito mode -- doesn't work.
I also tried IE 11.0.9700.16476 - also doesn't work.
Tried Ctrl-F5 to refresh browser, -- still no robot images.

Fantastic labor-saving tactic: one drawing, nine panels. Just think if you wrote this strip for years and years, how much time it would save.

[I can see the images on all of my devices (phone, iPad, Windows) and every browser. What are you using that doesn't work? -- Scott]

Its intermittent on my end and Im using IE 8.

Did you put up a third one? Not seeing it, even when I plug the files address into the browser.

On Tuesday I could see 2 rows of comics. Today (Wednesday) I see 3 rows of missing image tags. Scott, I think you should hire someone who knows something about the interweb-tubes.

[When I see the brilliance of your work I am convinced that you should not live among human beings. ]

Hear, hear. Your work is at the cutting edge of your industry. You are the Nelson Mandela of the comic strip. Your name will become legend in the arena.

Nope, still don't see anything.

(Sorry... Spartacus on Netflix overload)

I love these comics. They're funny to me because they're pretty close to the way I view the world. But I see why it would be too cynical and contrary to fit a lot of newspapers.

I sense that Scott here is tackling the "How does a successful artist find space to develop a new idea to maturity without having it crushed by comparisons with his established, mature work?" problem. I think Jerry Seinfeld has faced the same problem. It's interesting see him using a similar low-profile, stealth approach in "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee". It seems that the public will allow artists some breathing room if it appears that they're just playing around.

They are not your type.

Scott,

This one should be seen by all youngsters who wish to become cartoonists.

This is probably the future of tech humor.

Hope Dilbert will go on. Too soon to be shelved as legacy.

High-level competition is a kind of warped Peter Principle game. If you're good, you keep competing until you reach a level where you're not the winner; then every couch potato who'd never make the cut for a company softball game gets to sneer at you as an abject failure.

And suppose you reach the very peak. If your performance level drops a notch five minutes before you retire, they sneer at how you couldn't beat your past self.

Seriously, how many high school football heroes would last a game against the Broncos?

Saw it fine this morning. Now it's "404 File Not found". Oh Well.

For those of you who can't see the cartoon, there are several panels shown with a robot sitting behind a newscaster's desk. The robot is sort of a combination of a skinny Michelin man with a Tinky Winky antenna on his iPad-like head. The robot appears to have bulging "Chris Tucker eyes", but it could be just the lack of eyelids that make them appear bulging.

OK, now I see that the robot has one more corner on his antenna than Tinky Winky. Probably calculated to avoid copyright, and also it looks less gay. No, I take that back, the sturdy robot has all of the straight, manly bearing of a young Raymond Burr.

I don't want to get into too much detail, but the robot has Frankenstein-like bolt ears and also 3 buttons -- or possibly status lights -- on the top front of his metallic torso. The lights do not appear to change, or to have anything to do with the hilarious joke.

As the robot delivers a rather sharp-witted statement, I notice he purposefully keeps his mechanical hands and teeth perfectly still, probably so as not to detract from the several English words that are prominently displayed at the top of each panel. The 4th panel changes the subject rather severely, but the robot's flawless delivery and authoritative manner pull him through admirably, and the result is that humans are mocked mercilessly (and for good reason).

I see 2 strips, no problem. I'm not sure why, though, is this a new strip to replace Dilbert which might be getting "too political"? If so, the robot doesn't seem to have the same warmth of, say, Catbert; but re-using the same frame should at least dramatically reduce the drawing time and allow the wacom to be replaced by ms paint.
(Is that too snarky? Sometimes when I'm trying to be funny it backfires and feeling get hurt.)

Huh. Can't see it on the page. Can't see it if I right-click and try to open image in a new tab, can see them if I copy the url in directly.

Also, the copyright is ©201. How long ago did you make those? Are you immortal? Whatever the answer is, you've created comics so interesting that my eye is drawn to the copyright symbol.

Its coming and going again.

Whats the prob? Youve posted comics and pics here before, what did you do different this time?
