    If Percy is smart he is using this time to do some research on assisted living facilities, because that is the best result he can hope for when the big G returns.

    Your site loads http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js?ver=3.5 — unfortunately, loading it this way makes your site very slow to load, as this involves pulling it out of SVN each time.

    Probably the best thing would be download it and put it on your own site, but I’ve also found a CDN-based copy at http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/html5shiv/3.6/html5shiv.min.js, but I really recommend obtaining a *minified* version, and hosting it yourself. That will save making a new connection.

    It’s also pretty easy to set up Amazon’s Cloudfront as a CDN for your comic; that may even save you money, depending on your bandwidth charges.

    In my googling around to look for a CDN-based version, I found this excellent article explaining why the way you’re doing it is wrong — and also pointing out it’s not your fault, as various sources say to do it that way!

        Not assuming — hoping! Hoping either you’d know, or be able to take it to who’s helping you.

        If that didn’t work, let’s see if we can figure out how to help you.

        This code is probably being inserted by one of the WordPress themes or plugins. I took a look at the latest version of the Webcomic theme, and it is doing it correctly. Perhaps the solution is to simply update your site to use newer WP plugins and themes?

        If you need help narrowing down the culprit, let me know what themes and plugins you’re using, and I’ll take a look at their source code and see if I can spot the problem for you.

        I’m sure you’ll really like the speedup!
