There She Is 2013-08-28

Good thing Tina has regular customers. This kind of talk tends to scare celebs away.

The smart ones, anyway.

Also T's haircut looks better from this angle.

Well, this is the first time I've ever seen a comment post BEFORE the strip it references. I STILL can't get the new comic on the home page.

*edit* I finally got today's comic by going to the Archive. Huh.

I"m with NOTDilbert, still ain't got no new one.

But, I am eight thousand miles, more or less, from Wapsiville. It might take a little longer to get here...

Using the browser still brings up yesterdays comic. 'F5' just reloads the same page. Odd thing for Firefox.

Did you try delete your browser's cache, closing then reopening the browser? Then maybe hit F5. Otherwise, maybe try Chrome.

Even weirder? I read it like four minutes before I checked the forum.

Out-of-sync page generation / caching.

Probably some cloud-based server, where the various participants in the cloud are not updated simultaneously ... it's getting to be more common.

Also, typo alert: "You're parents" ...
perl -e 'print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},";'

The Sidhekin proves that Sidhe did it!

This is a lot more in-depth than Tina usually reads - or at least that she admits reading. And she doesn't know Georgette, so what's prompted her to turn from 'happy barrista' to 'Charles Xavier with no sense of boundaries'?

Also, we got a solo comment of "Intriguing."
You should be reading the Wapsi Square Wiki.

Annnd back to what happened in the strip. Given Georgette last name her grandfather sounds like an Irish brawler. So odds on it was not Monica G'pa. Now is Tina reading that or was she there at the plane crash?

There she is! Those 12 year old plane crash survivors are always in the last place you look.

Cleared cache, rebooted, all back to normal now (shrug). Can concentrate on art and story again.....

I suspect Tina came out swinging like a brawler to match Georgettes natural reactions. Now who is the girl she is looking for? That she is looking seems to surprise her. We probably all think she is looking for Monica, maybe not realizing it, but maybe not. Paul has a way of surprising us.

I frequently get the same thing with Chrome, but find that clicking back to previous day's strip and hitting "Latest" brings up today's episode.

Monica's Grandpa was an Irish soldier of fortune, apparently.

And we know he had at least one Very Close female friend before Monica's grandma - Jin.
