This comic isn't a numbered comic. The ephemeral ghost comic has broken explainxkcd! 22:23, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Fair point. Probably the page should be renamed to 2184.5 or something. 08:52, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Well, it broke the xkcd client I use. (Easy xkcd, Android) Just crashes on start. I hope it will fix itself when the normal one comes out. I also hope that this comic will remain here when it is taken down. Fghsgh (talk) 22:43, 4 August 2019 (UTC) fghsgh

Previous then Next on 404's... Trivia! 22:59, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

It's not rendering for me on the portal, could anyone else verify? I'm excited in seeing what else this comic will break. Kirdneh (talk) 23:11, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

This works for me now. —TobyBartels (talk) 08:59, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

I wonder what will happen tomorrow! Oh the antici- pation! 00:01, 5 August 2019 (UTC) Sam

Others had the same idea I did, this comic has been archived to For posterity(?) 02:52, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

I only noticed this on Monday morning, so was surprised to find that there isn't more detail about the various things the comic mentions possibly breaking. It got me wondering how many people on the site (especially the younger ones) aren't even aware of IP over Avian Carriers, Gopherspace, or lynx. This is one of those comics that could easily be a forest of links to interesting things you might never have thought to look for. -- Angel (talk) 07:47, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

I added a list; you should add more explanation to it. —TobyBartels (talk) 08:59, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Has the comic been changed since it was posted, to stop breaking things? Because it's appearing as #2185 for me and the link to that number from #2184 works. (Also, I love that--Internet Archive notwithstanding--we're almost certainly going to keep a well-explained copy of this comic alive for posterity. What will we number it, though? Has Randall broken explain xkcd too?) -- Peregrine (talk) 08:52, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
