Has anyone considered that 1110 is extensible and that at some random interval Randall may add more tiles to the mosaic.


That's a very good point. Someone should write a script that automatically checks for changes every week or so.

It's not over!!! I thought for sure "Click and Drag" was the last comic. He scared me a bit there by waiting until a few minutes after midnight to upload.

Re: 0866: "Compass and Straightedge"

Well actually, since he's a stick figure, it should be very simple for him to construct friends. Just five straight lines and a circle.

He should be more worried about his head not being connected to his body.
