Dilbert ... Interesting

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Sep 6, 2009.

  1. The weekday Dilbert strips have URLs like this

    http://dilbert.com//dyn/str_strip/0...0/000000/60000/6000/400/66483/66483.strip.gif

    whereas the longer weekly ones have URLs like this

    http://dilbert.com//dyn/str_strip/0...0/60000/4000/700/64751/64751.strip.sunday.gif

    Once by mistake I constructed a URL for the latter without the ".sunday"
    part, e.g.:

    http://dilbert.com//dyn/str_strip/0...0/000000/60000/4000/700/64751/64751.strip.gif

    And I got the strip, but with all the panels in one row. Wonder why that
    works...

    Doesn't go the other way, though: try putting ".sunday" into a weekday strip
    URL, and you just get taken to the dilbert.com home page.
