GoComics comics are fixed in comics aggregator

By | September 1, 2018

Some time in the past month, the folks over at GoComics.com made a minor change to their site regarding formatting one-digit dates which broke the comics aggregator’s parsing code when the month rolled over from August 31 (two digits) to September 1 (one). I’ve fixed it.

GoComics comics currently available in the aggregator are Adam@Home, Arlo and Janis, B.C., Betty, Baldo, Banana Triangle, Big Top, Birdbrains, Bloom County 2015, The Boondocks, The Boobiehatch, The Born Loser, Bound and Gagged, Brevity, Brewster Rockit, Broom Hilda, Calvin and Hobbes, Candorville, Cathy, Close to Home, Dog Eat Doug, Doonesbury, Drabble, The Duplex, F Minus, Family Tree, The Flying McCoys, For Better or For Worse, FoxTrot, Frazz, Fred Basset, The Fusco Brothers, Garfield, Get Fuzzy, Heart of the City, Ink Pen, Jump Start, The Knight Life, Lio, Luann, Lucky Cow, Marmaduke, Mike du Jour, Monty, 9 Chickweed Lane, Non Sequitur, Off the Mark, One Big Happy, The Other Coast, Overboard, Peanuts, Pearls Before Swine, Phoebe and Her Unicorn, Pickles, Pluggers, Prickly City, Rose Is Rose, Rubes, Scary Gary, Speed Bump, Stone Soup, Strange Brew, Sylvia, That’s Life, Tank McNamara, Watch Your Head, and Wizard of Id.

Also, while I was mucking around I made the URL of the aggregator a little prettier now, so now it’s just “https://comics.kamens.us/” rather than “https://comics.kamens.us/cgi-bin/comics”. The latter URL will continue to work for backward compatibility.

As always, if there’s any comic you don’t see in the aggregator that you’d like, or if you have any other questions or feedback about the aggregator, please let me know.
