    Why was there a jump from September 2008 to February 2006? (New here)

  2. The Dark Ferret says:

    You mean 2009, right? I suspect that she took some time off for other projects.

  3. Jessica says:

    Aw, that means I’m closer to being caught up than I thought. I’m really impatient and this is great reading. <3 Digger & Company

  4. Mani says:

    Jump in dates aside, is there a reason why, according to the URL, the page jumps from 607 to 662?

  5. UCGV Defenestration says:

    They do that all throughout the archive. It’s really odd, tho I’ve seen it elsenet.

    The unconventional setup for browsing the archives was also initially vexing – I’ve never seen a site structured like this(well, one that also lacks the usual << >> buttons), and while it seems obvious in retrospect, I can admit that for a while, I didn’t have a clue how to browse the archives(atleast, with any measure of convenience). Quite clueless – took me a little while to figure it out, and I almost gave up on the comic completely.

    Quite embarrassing, really, all the more so for how out of character it was. Still, the usual (First) (Last) (Next) (Latest) buttons would be nice.

  6. bA nAn A says:

    i don’t know what you see UCGV, but i see buttons that actually say ‘first’ ‘previous’ ‘next’ and ‘current’ underneath the comic, which is exactly what you’re looking for. Also, underneath the Digger at the top there’s a ‘previous’ and ‘next’ which i find very helpful for skimming the pages for a specific scene.

    None the less, I do find the numbering very odd.

  7. Gcat says:

    I had the same problem UCGV Defenestration, I think it’s a problem with Firefox, since the buttons show up in Opera. So try another browser.

  8. Rista-liehna says:

    I’m using Firefox, no problems here. Maybe something wrong with UCGV’s security settings?

  9. Tom Long says:

    I find two aspects of the site navigation vexatious:
    The non-sequential numbering means I can’t automagically download the entire comic and read it offline.
    And for some reason Opera is unable to recognise the Previous and Next buttons for what they are, preventing me using the Fast-Forward function which is so handy for long comic-reading sessions – set it to a keystroke such as spacebar and never have to worry about mouse-induced RSI again.

  10. Henry says:

    My main problem with the navigation is there’s no easy way to find the beginning of a particular chapter unless you remember its publication date.

  11. Neats says:

    I had the same problem until I updated my version of Firefox, which is why I’m only reading through the archives now instead of months ago.

  12. capnq says:

    I suspect the reason for the numbering scheme is to /prevent/ downloading the entire archive with a bot.

    I sometimes see Opera not recognize the previous/next buttons, but reloading the page usually clears that.

    I’ve been keeping track of my place in the archives by reading one chapter at a sitting, and bookmarking the next chapter’s cover.

  13. JET73L says:

    That’s a good idea, capnq!

    For me, Opera Mini works fine. I don’t recall if I have ever seen Digger in Opera and I know I have not opened Firefox since I started reading the comic, but I think it works in IE (my backup browser) and might work in Opera PC 9.62 or 10.63-ish (my full [o’ tabs] browser). I just assumed it was some change, that there were originally no back/forward buttons or that they were not visible to Opera (or certain versions of Opera),
