New comics after 1132 not showing up?

Postby zachattack05 » Wed Nov 14, 2012 5:46 pm UTC

The last comic that shows up for me when I visit the site is 1132 (Frequentists vs. Bayesians) and refreshing, clearing cache etc...does nothing. Even the threads in the individual comics forum for the comics following 1132, show up as broken images in chrome.

Is it just me? No one else seems to be saying anything that I can see.

Notices nothing wrong. What happens when you visit comic 1133? Another broken image?

No, I get a error document that only says:

404 - Not Found

I only get the broken images when viewing the forum here and looking at the individual comic threads. All the previous ones work, just the newer ones do not.

I think the same is also happening with the what-if site. The last one that shows is the "Tie Vote" one. I don't even get a "Next" option on either the comic or the what-if site.

Odd.

Looked around.

1. Try Incognito Mode. Does that solve anything?

2. Try disabling some extensions. Saw Avast WebRep and FastestChrome extensions mentioned.

I'm getting similar problems. My rss feed showed the latest comic, but when I go to the actual site, the logo and image are down. Some of the what-ifs work, some don't. quantz.com was also having issues, too, though.

I haven't cleared my cookies because it hasn't bothered my but I did try incognito mode and it was still broken.

Typing "xkcd.com" in the address bar in incognito mode goes to Frequentists vs. Bayesians (http://xkcd.com/1132/) and if Avast WebRep and FastestChrome are installed and functioning on my computer, they are doing it illegally and must be shot and killed on the spot. Chrome reports the following add-ons:

* Norton Identity Protection 2012.5.6.10

Which is disabled in incognito mode.

…Strange. Deteriorated rapidly. Will replay the previous ten minutes:

- Visited Dinosaur Comics. Failed. (Does not read that webcomic. Cannot say anything useful.)
- Went to xkcd.com. Loaded the most recent comic correctly.
- Tried several What-Ifs. Failed.
- Returned to xkcd.com. Still good.
- Checked previous comics. Loaded the banner incorrectly. Messed up the format. Does not recall whether the comic worked.
- Looked back to the current comic. See above’s banner/format issue. Showed the comic itself correctly.
- Fails to load any xkcd comic. Includes image links on the fora. Visits correct webpages still.

Performed the recommended cache clear. Ditto on Incognito Mode. No changes. Selects the proper comic, at least. Suspects a different problem (than zachattack05's).

Will wait for someone more informed.

Edit seventy-five minutes later: Functions properly now. Shrugs. Cannot suggest anything further for the original problem.

Hmm...

If you try to ping xkcd.com, what IP address does it resolve to? Maybe you're being sent to the wrong server somehow?

Code: Select all

enum ಠ_ಠ {°□°╰=1, °Д°╰, ಠ益ಠ╰};
void ┻━┻︵​╰(ಠ_ಠ ⚠) {exit((int)⚠);}
[he/him/his]

I think the issue is resolved now, and I think it was a higher-level problem than xkcd, seeing that Dinosaur Comics was affected for both me and Deva.

Yep, think it is fixed for me now too unless the last "what-if" is not the "Tie" one, if it isn't then that site is still in the past, but the comics are coming up now.

Diamond doesn't show, only Tie.

At least for me.

Interesting. It works for me but I did have to refresh it first. Have you tried redoing the clear-cache stuff now that it's up?

What happens if you click on "next" from Tie?

I don't see a "Next" button, just "Prev"

Clearing cache still doesn't seem to help...this is bizarre!

This would have been an issue with the user's DNS provider. Someone was COMPLETELY violating the 10 minute caching limit.

If you do a DNS lookup you probably get 107.6.97.98 not 107.6.106.82. If that isn't the case, then you have a bad proxy. Don't know what to tell you - this is pretty much a networking issue on your side that I can't just fix for you.
