So I figured out that Tat has setup a server side detection commonly used with Apache HTTP Server Software (link: look it up if you're not familiar) to automatically detect the time on your computer.

So I noticed that anytime after 1:14am on your computer that the new Sinfest comic is uploaded.

This makes sense, since Tat certainly is not going to sit around every evening to upload the new comic. Updating dynamically by the time of the day for the visitor's computer is a commonly used technique.

That is how I have been posting the comic first every day recently. I have been exploiting this server side dynamic update, so I actually see the comic long before anyone else does.

As of right now, there are about 2 weeks of sinfest comics on the server, up until July 9, 2007. All you need to do is change your computer's date in windows and refresh the main page and you will see the new comic. Today's Sunday is especially awesome... a job very well done!

Sorry if I spoiled anything Tat but it's really difficult to wait every day to see your next comic! ^_^ !!

isn't that like peeking at your christmas presents?

hmm. it does, however, absolutely conclusively prove that Tatsuya does comics in advance. as if that wasn't already obvious

I thought it was just because you were being an asshole.

You've posted it the past two days. What the hell are you talking about?

I can see how you would think that, but no.

I've been looking at the comics in advance for quite some time now, but finally decided to start sharing them a little early with everyone two days ago.

I've got an idea. How about you leave your little haxor comic fetching to yourself and let everyone read and comment on it when it's actually on the site, when Tat wants everyone to see it? Seriously, do you think everyone is going to say "congrats on being a total leet haxor and showing us the comics early, we are so gracious to your efforts"?

Really, we don't give a shit.

And this "OMG LAWL FIRST LAWL OMG LAWL LAST LAWL" shit is wearing kinda thin. Actually it wore thin before it even started.

You do realize once you read all of the ones that are uploaded you'll just have to wait again anyways? ^-^;;

Actually, this is kind of interesting, if only because it proves that tat does the comics in advance. So all the "I posted about this yesterday, tat used my post for inspiration" people can shut up now.

(Stop yelling "first" every time you post a comic)

Did anyone actually try this? Personally I think this clientwise date check is utter nonsense.

Well, I've posted it first a number of times - I put it down to being in a different time zone to you guys (I'm GMT+2 and you're all about 10 hours behind me) so I'm up and going to work/at work while you're still all in bed.

Changing the date on your computer does nothing.

Well yes, after testing it seems to do nothing at all.
