Re: 1220: Hipsters

Whenever a music festival lineup is released it causes a lot of conversation of facebook. Generally though, I find that there are more posts complaining about people talking about the lineup than there are posts of people actually talking about the lineup.

So yeah. That's kind of relevant.

Re: 1213: "Combination Vision"

Well, I just see a circle filled with small numbers, so I guess I'm not special. I just see a circle composed of numbers.

Re: Files suddenly duplicating when trying to move them

I was suspecting something like that (though I blamed it on the mouse, not on my own error). Thanks, such a simply answer/solution. I'm sure I will keep making this mistake over and over again though haha.

Files suddenly duplicating when trying to move them

I couldn't think of how to explain this problem in the subject, so sorry for the fact that it may not be the best. I've got a whole lot of unordered files on an external hard drive. I'm trying to organize them by moving them all into appropriate folders. I create a folder for something (say "pi...

Re: 1086: "Eyelash Wish Log"

I'll be honest: for a while now I haven't been too thrilled with XKCD. The comics aren't bad, but nothing special. But Monday's one was hilarious, and so is this one. My excitement over the strips is coming back.

Is it accurate to call a webcomic a strip?
