This is the OLD archives page, and is not longer updated (and hasn't been for some time, I'm afraid). This page is still around mainly to preserve the old strip titles, which I have yet to incorporate into the new design. At the beginning of 2009, these links will no longer work, as I'll be taking down the duplicate version of the comics that they link to (the new format involved renaming all the comic files, and it would be pretty ugly to figure out a way to redirect all the old links to the new ones).
To view the newest comics, use the new flash-based navigation bars (like the one above). The new template features next/prev buttons and can jump to any comic by number. Eventually I also hope to have all the comics transcribed into OhNoRobot, making them searchable by text (but I haven't been spending much time on that yet).
The old format strips start at 1-1, and progress in blocks in the order indicated in the diagram to the right.
