Today's Cul de Sac for May 12, 2011

GoComics is still down for those of us browsing with Safari, so here's today's strip as a public service. Long time readers with their memory still intact will recognize the childish taunt the two rowdies are using as a cheer. And just look at that jungle gym! Giovanni Battista Piranesi would weep to see such perspecstive!

Gave up on Safari ages ago, it's such a memory eater. Chrome's the thing. Love the thread going on now :D

Oh, it's down for more than Safari. I love the error message: "We're sorry, but something went wrong.

We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly."

Shortly? This is your freakin' web site! This is your job! You'll take a look at it shortly?

The motto of our new service economy: "Your call is very important to us. Just not important enough to answer."

(Those of us who have lost jobs in the new service economy get a little testy over these metamessages.)

Alice is kind of a bad influence on Sofie, I think. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I'm told it's being worked on, probably feverishly. It's not the browser, as in some areas the site's viewable on any browser, so it's likely a regional server problem. I'm just parroting speculation from others here; I have no idea what any of that means.

It was down on everything, my phone, chrome, firefox etc.

THANKS for the PSA!
