Please fire the moron in marketing that set this new page up! Totally irritating! Sucks!

The problems I see with this site are difficulty in copying the strip and the fact that it will be more difficult to download and run on computers with slow internet connections and older computers.

You know, it doesn't have to be all one way or the other. You could configure your site to provide more than one interface - that way, everyone would be happy.

What the hell, why have you broken Dilbert. Web 2.0 is about user generated content, not splashing "beta" on a site that should have been tested by testers, and shoving on a comments section (which, I add, ruins good humour).

Not to mention the fact that the front page slows my PC to a halt, the viewer is terrible and overly bloated, and the interface is sufficiently convoluted that navigating to archived things is a pain in the !$%*!$%*!$%*!$ either change the site back for the sake of the people who've made it popular (by reading it, and thus lining your pockets), or at least provide a lite version that is just a bunch of links and pngs/jpgs, and none of this flash b*ll*cks.

Kind of ironic though, that a comic that mocks bloat, stupid managerial decisions and out of touch company policy has managed to do exactly that.

Wow, did NOBODY think to test the new site design outside of Microsoft's Internet Explorer? The site is COMPLETELY BROKEN in the latest versions of Opera and Firefox. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?! Nobody was asking for a ridiculous amount of Flash and JavaScript and other such bandwidth wasting, time consuming, and irritating nonsense. The whole "web 2.0" interactive website idea only really works on certain types of websites, and this is not one of them. Epic failure here, guys. VPI.NET clearly doesn't know what they are doing, and they clearly are either uneducated about cross platform compatibility, and why that is important, or they are arrogant MCSE morons who think everyone should be using M.I.E. or nothing at all. Either way, Dilbert.com has pulled a stunt worthy of the pointy haired boss. Good job on emulating your own comic. I hope you fix this mess soon, as I will NOT be switching back and forth between browsers, simply to view this one site. I left gocomics.com when they started pulling this crap with Flash required to see the comics, etc. I will leave Dilbert behind in the dust too.

nlyons,

If you click on "embed" and copy the URL after where it says "source" (for today's strip, its http://dilbert.com/dyn/str_strip/000000000/00000000/0000000/000000/00000/2000/200/2826/2826.strip.gif), and paste it into your address bar, you can get a hold of the strip where you can copy it to your computer.
