Programatically Accessing xkcd

Hello,
I have a .NET program, and I'm trying to download an xkcd comic, but the server "actively refuses the connection." Has anyone else seen this? I used to be able to download them programatically just fine, but something must have changed.

Re: Cable Making

All kinds of USB cable have the same internal makeup: 4 data lines, 1 power line. It is extremely easy to pick just two of the data lines and twist them onto the two wires inside a headphone cable, thereby discarding the remaining data, but still being a viable option. I can also just write my own d...

Re: Which language?

XNA is cool, but it is best done in C#, which is not really a beginner language. I started with HTML/Javascript. I would reccomend the same. Eventually, I would suggest settling down with C#, because it is so damn amazing.

It totally is! Plus, if you use Visual Studio or SharpDevelop, you can drag and drop controls for your GUI and then just write the code behind! Genius!
