I’ve been reading Schlock Mercenary for about 5 years now; Howard Tayler has provided much entertainment for me. Thanks, Howard!
However he just finished 20 years of Schlock and is taking a well-deserved hiatus. This leaves me is a bad spot – nothing to entertain me with.
I noticed the date format of the web archive of the strip, and realized that if I simply subtract 20 years from the current date, I will get a valid URL from the first Schlock book. If I script that, I can get a new comic every day until Howard starts writing again!!!!
PHP. I know, I know… Whatcha gonna do?
