Re: 1190: "Time"

If the comic goes on long enough we might see tidal movements of the water surface, if they are indeed at an ocean (or very large lake)

Re: 0880: "Headache"

Well I think the 3d effect really works on some comics while it completely ruins others. maybe if they get converted properly this could add a nice touch to XKCD. You can still use the mobile version if you want things to be the old way. I personally would like to see this system stay in place even ...

Re: Gaming in Linux

Linux games are coming! But they are mostly flash or java based and small little casual games. I'm talking on all the Smartphone/Mobile/Tablet games. Most of them practically run some form of linux oder an other unix derivative. Their producers seem to make enough money via micropayments. Most of th...

Randall actually saved the universe from ending in a segfault by opening this brace now.

But this may render everything wich happend from now on as a strange subroutine which probably defaults to false ;)

Unfortunately she insisted on keeping the ISP ...
