Wow.
I've been visiting Dilbert's website pretty regularly for my daily Dilbert comic. This has been a bright spot in my otherwise frustrating and stressful workday. I'm also a long-time member of DNRC, which makes me smart enough to easily detect corporate marketing and web-tracking BS.
Through some unhappy coincidence, I seem to have installed No-Script on my browser the very day before you went for some Web2.0 or other nonsense thing. I for one am used to just going to dilbert.com and waiting through a minor graphic load to see the comic strip of the day. Now it says I must have Flash. Sure, I have Flash, but I have FlashBlock too, because I also have dialup and Flash over dialup is simply out of the question. There are a lot of websites that are non-functional without Flash. It's a shame to see Dilbert join them.
No more Dilbert, I guess. Time to get to work.

I'll check back next week and see if you've by some off chance returned to your senses, but usually such changes are a symptom of corporate imbecility, which may seldom be questioned or reconsidered. Since I don't have broadband I guess you don't need my traffic.

Oh, and, for the record, I use FireFox & IceWeasel, so I'm one more guy for whom an IE-only website isn't going to work.

Not a good change - I am not in the habit of allowing epic amounts of bandwidth to be gobbled up by uneccessary flash, and it is now more difficult to browse the old strips.

All in all, unimpressed.

This is a glaring example of failure to follow the KISS principle
Please go back to old format

This is stupid. Flash sucks, this sucks. It's just a freaking image, for crying out loud. Just say this:

<img src="todays_dilbert.gif">

That makes your job a whole lot easier and I don't have to install 12M of half-broken noise and lights on my browser, not that I'm going to. Fix it quick, or it's goodbye forever.

Idiots.

well well well now that sucks. Like Golf balls through a garden hose. Just what we needed - a major resource hog, which only work with Micro$oft (what's Scott coming to!), and which only distracts from the funny strips.
And what happened to all the other strips which used to be on the site?
sorry folks, sorry Scott, you lost your way.
