Comic search

Any chance of implementing a way to search the comics? Sort of like what some guy over at toothpastefordinner did? Sometimes I want to send someone a particular comic that I remember but I have a hell of a time finding it (since I don't remember what date it was from). I'm imagining a simple full te...

Well the fact that it isn't a word, and the keyboard layout was designed to be easier to type words which is why it is arranged as it is. Sure, let me be the boring one this time :( Not if you're using a QWERTY keyboard. It was designed to slow down typists. In the old days the fastest typists woul...
