The CK site is back now. Very similar failure to the one two Sundays ago but this one took longer to fix for some reason.

10.50 central time, CK may be “up” but everything is requesting paywall access now. hopefully it goes back to regular soon… ?

It appears to be available as I write, but given the problems that they have plagued them since their redesign a year or two ago, and their toxic comment section, I’m not sure of how much value that is.

Sorry, reposting with my name as required. I knew that, I just picked the wrong option.

As of 9:30 (CDT) today, only one of the eight comics I follow will load. Today’s comics are visible via my local newspaper site, but _none_ of the comics shows an entry for Sunday.

Is this a DDoS? Or just a massive server foul-up? Youth wants to know! (And so do I.)

Y’all got it better than me.
I haven’t been able to log in to premium service for two weeks, since that fubar then.
Today they renewed my subscription for another year!

I was able to see some of the missing CK Sundays via the Houston Chronicle:

(Usually I read the CK strips that my local deadtree doesn’t print via the Seattle Times site, but that didn’t/doesn’t seem to have the Sundays this week either.)

carl, just a fubar on their part. i can get to the sunday ones today. i’m glad at least arcamax has most of them, but trail is one i’d be pretty sore about losing. i could see that on the washington post site but it was small and blurry.

I tried to post here yesterday that the online comics site for the Houston Chronicle showed the missing Sundays (and also noted that the site for the Seattle Times, which I usually use instead of going to (ptui) CK itself, did not), but the post was sent into moderation and never reappeared (probably because I included the two links and the modbot thought I was being wicked or something). Anyway, a quick DuckDuckGo will give you the URLs for future reference.

Didn’t notice your first post (now approved) in the queue.
Miahnhamnida.
You are right about two links in a comment usually sending the letter into a pending pattern.
Thanks for The Chron info, we’ll check that out IF Comics Kingdom ever goes ka-blooey again.

p.s.: the sites I checked – The Oregonian and The Arizona Republic – didn’t get the Sunday strips out either. Stopped checking after those two.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
