What are your favourite computer related comics? And I don't mean "Webcomic A" or "Webcomic B", but which specific comic episode of Webcomic A? I'm trying to wrap up a blog post that would involve these! Send them in please! :D

Also, mention where you got it from! Max. of 2 entries per user.

Update: Please send in (and/or vote for existing) before June 22nd!

    I know you've ruled out A and B, but what about Webcomic Θ? It's obviously the best. ;P

  • +1 .... I LOVE this one! Jun 14 '11 at 8:09
  • +1, I use this on a daily basis. My roomate knows nothing about computers and he asked what 'sudo' was. I told him that it was one program in linux/unix which would turn the computer into a special 'command mode' which could control other linux/unix computers. I said this was mostly based on good faith and no one really used it ... it was just for emergencies.

  • This makes me glad that for all the problems at my office, we actually have a good, well planned, well thought-out, and even well rehearsed disaster recovery plan. And if a truck hit me on my way to the disaster recovery site, everybody else would probably do what that poor sap is doing in Dilbert's slide. Aug 2 '11 at 15:46

Wellington Grey's Miscellanea had some real gems. Sadly, his site does not appear to exist on the internet any longer, but I was able to find one of my favorites.

Gotta love Basic Instructions:

enter image description here

Reminds me of the time I gave one of our sales people dual monitors for the first time. I finished up and was about to leave when she asked, "how do I use the other screen, do I need another keyboard and mouse?"

  • There’s no personal information at basicinstructions.net; is that the C++ expert Scott Meyer?

ps: the next day was, the important thing is persistence (Oct 28, 1995) enter image description here

and, in a subtle way (Mar 25, 1992),
on, a command of throughly useless information ;-)

Gosh! I could keep quoting the entire works of Bill Watterson!!
