Comic Problems / RSS Problems

Drive Pals! With apologies, it looks like the auto-script that brings the comic “live” each Thursday at midnight hasn’t been working the past two weeks. We thought we had it fixed for this week (11/17/22), but! …it found a new way to fail.

So! Know we’re aware of the problem, and aware that it cascades an error into the RSS feed. Hopefully we’ll get it sorted by next week’s update.

…Websites are fun!
