I hate it when a webcomic doesn't have table of contents, and the url for a specific comic isn't just a number, so you can't easily find your place at all if you didn't save it.

That's why I started using a comic tracking site, i just have to open that page and see if any of the comics have an update since i last read them

My last hearing aid battery has gone flat and I've run outta ventolin. What fun!   
I only have to wait 'til Monday for this little town's pharmacy to be open... ::)

That seems like the sort of handy thing that it might be nice to link for the others involved in this discussion, y'know.

Social Security sent me an email warning about scam calls. Haha, nice one; I don't have to worry because I know the real SSA would never call me, or email me, or send me a letter, or do anything at all despite multiple phone calls to remind them that yes, I'm still here and still unable to work under doctor's orders.

Do you mean an RSS reader?

No, the one I use isn't an RSS reader. I did use RSS for comics for a bit, but it was shit to do it that way. There are a better comic-specific services. The problem with RSS is that it just sends you a link whenever a new comic comes out so you're left managing a ton of RSS posts if you read a few comics. It's also no use for tagging an old comic you'd like to read. What's the point of getting RSS notifications of new comics if I'm 1500 pages behind? So RSS isn't an integrated solution for managing all your webcomic reading. Also, that approach pretty much means you're juggling bookmarks, and that's not a very reliable way to keep track of anything, and is also specific to your specific browser install, so it's not a portable solution.

RSS sends you a new individual post every time a new comic comes out so you have to go and manually remove the posts if X number of comics comes out and you don't have time to read them. So for SMBC which updates like 5 times a week, if I didn't have time to read it for a couple of weeks now i have to wade through 10 posts in my RSS feed. That's more work. The point is to make it less work. I use comic-rocket.com, it's the best one I found so far. You just tag the comics you want to read and it auto-tracks what page you're up to, and also auto-sorts the list so the ones with new comics but that you're *closest* to catching up with are at the top. And importantly, it doesn't spam posts at you every time a new comic come out like having an RSS would. RSS is like being on a treadmill trying to keep up, whereas with what I have set up now I just jump on the one site when I have time, see which comics have new releases and decide which ones I *want* to catch up with.

Brother didn't want me joining their D&D game. They all said it was too big a group. Just sucks being left out again.
