Zencomic - increasing happiness since nineteen digity two

Today I had some spare time and decided to hack together a quick addin for Zencomic. I choose garfield minus garfield as I feel it reflects my life pretty closely in some aspects (not the manic depressive aspects though ;) ).

One of the downsides of working with a distributed team is that everyone starts work at a different time. On some of the quieter days when people are away on holidays, I'm sometimes the only hacker actively working on Moonlight in the wee small hours of 9am UTC. By the time the Americans wake up, I've sometimes left a nice little monologue in the IRC channel detailing my frustrations and successes during the morning.

Anyone, now for the obligatory screenshot

The addin was hacked together over the course of 30 minutes. It should be able to open any garfield-garfield comic, but if you find a particular one it fails on do let me know. Also, please don't suggest I switch my beautiful string splitting code into a Regex unless you plan on writing it yourself ;)

UPDATE: I just fixed the last known issue. The addin now detects exactly how many pages of g-g goodness there are rather than being hardcoded to assume 101 pages (the current number).

Well, I do not actually believe it is likely to have success.
