Re: What-If 0136: "Spiders vs. the Sun"

I think that notice was put in place when he was doing the book tour. I don't think it is valid anymore. No, I can assure you that that notice is brand new. Apparently Randall made a typo on the date; he's fixed it now. Anyway, I'm glad to see that Randall finally gave us some information. I expect...

Re: What-If 0136: "Spiders vs. the Sun"

I think it's safe to say that what-if is dead. And I think it's safe to say you're wrong. WI? has existed for 143 weeks, and there have been only 136 postings. If a missed week or two was all it took, it would have ended many times before. Randall is one man. He gets vacation time like the rest of ...

Re: What-If 0136: "Spiders vs. the Sun"

I think it's safe to say that what-if is dead. This latest one was supposed to be published on April 7, according to the original "every Tuesday" schedule. It is now April 26. Since this one was actually published on the 12th, there has been no what-if for 2 weeks. I'm going to assume it i...

Re: What-If 0124: "Lunar Swimming"

So, it used to be "Tuesdays: New What If?s!", which then sorta morphed into What If? Wednesday... Are we up to "What If? Whenever" now? Maybe the book tour turned into a road tour? I know, I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, complain about free ice cream, etc., but it wo...

Re: 1462: "Blind Trials"

Apparently no one in the #xkcd channal knows why the comic's late either. I'm worried something has happened to Randall- maybe not him personally, but perhaps something like a family emergency.

Re: 1462: "Blind Trials"

Is Randall taking a break for Christmas? It's Monday at 10:48 AM, and there's been no new comic, nor any word on a delay. Randall's never been late with a comic since I found xkcd.

Re: What-If 0120: "Alternate Universe What Ifs"

I'm no newbie, even if I did do nothing but lurk for a year. :) And anyway, I've been following xkcd since late September 2012. It would be nice if Randall went to two comics a week and slipped what-if into the empty space, but I'd be surprised if it actually happened. I get the feeling that what-if...

Re: What-If 0120: "Alternate Universe What Ifs"

I'm thinking that Randall is losing interest in what-if, especially since publishing his book. Last year each installment appeared as promptly as each new comic, every Tuesday morning. Some months ago, the "every Tuesday" tagline was removed. Now new entries have slid from Tuesday to Wedne...
