Drunk Duck... now The Duck.. soon Dead Duck!

<insert picture of me looking dumbfounded after reading KAM's post in the Cameo-thread about DD being back and accessible>

<insert picture of me, hitting my head against the desk, repeatedly, after having checked his claims about the new way of setting up the links on said site>

<insert picture of me chasing the fleet-footed and all too sober mallard with my axe, eyes red from rage>

<Insert picture of me strangling said duck to an inch of his life... and beyond>


Okay, this I have to contemplate for a bit... the comics from DD (mostly thanks to certain Most Wanted Individuals) probably accounts for almost a third, if not more, of the full number of links in the Archive... now having to change all of them will be... an enormous amount of work!! :|

This is quite a blow and shock both to me and the Archive, but I'll wait a little time before I decide what to do next, there IS the slight chance of them adding something that will redirect old links, but I seriously doubt it... :(

Again, I'll wait a bit to decided what to do next... I really don't know it at this point... :cry:

Can't you script a change to the new format?

Give me some examples of the before and after, let me play with some regex's.
"So my Mom left me a huge heap of molding, rotten, decaying, puss-dripping zombies ... How cool is that?"

"So what is your advice to me?"
"Stop doing stupid crap."

I'm afraid the change has not rhyme and reason, nothing really match up...

This is for example the link to KAM's 1st of April strip: http://www.drunkduck.com/The_KAMics/5323231/
The old one stored in the Archive was this: http://www.drunkduck.com/The_KAMics/index.php?p=805356

Anothe example is Joff's 900th strip which has the new link of: http://www.drunkduck.com/Life_and_Death/5303371/
The one in the Archive is this one: http://www.drunkduck.com/Life_and_Death/index.php?p=780831

I can't, on the fly, see any similarities... :(

I have started making a list of new links for my comic.

Do you have a Replace feature on your coding thing? You could copy & paste the old address into the search part & the new address into the replace with part.
The KAMics - Comic
The KAMics - Comic Mirror
KAMic's Kast - Who's Who
KAM's Fanart - Fanart
KAM's Books - My work in print

Thanks, you alone make up for first 100+ DD links ;)
Still, there's many many more to change... I estimate some 2000-3000 perhaps :|

Yes, I got a search & replace feature... it will see some heavy use IF I undertake this project of updating...

It would make it easier for exchange the old links with the new ones, but first one has to FIND all the new links... :?
