The Irregular Webcomic crowd has launched Archive Binge, a service that will take an existing webcomic and feed it to you via RSS at the rate you choose. So, if you’ve never read Order of the Stick before, all you have to do is:
1) Go into the kitchen
2) Open freezer
3) Insert head
4) Close freezer really hard
5) Realize the pain and facial damage is a just punishment for missing out on such a fine webcomic.
6) Go read OOTS
But you’re daunted by reading all 672 strips at once, you could tell Archive Binge to make a special RSS feed that will give you 2 OOTS strips every day until you’re all caught up.
It’s a great idea. Note that if you sign up for Irregular Webcomic and elect to read one a day, you will never catch up because David Morgan-Mar is an unstoppable madman. However, if you elect to read two Irregular Webcomic strips each day, then in 2407 days – just over six and a half years – you’ll be all caught up. Yeah. You might want to read more than one of those a day.
DM of the Rings is one of the available comics. If you’ve always wanted to read that, now would be a good time to do so. I won’t even make you do the freezer thing.
