Re: 1190: "Time"

*De-Lurk Engaged* Prediction time! I reckon they all sit around gathering supplies, knowing that when the water gets too high they can all jump on LaPetite's raft and set sail. (Speaking of which, we should name the raft. I vote for 'La Boulangerie', as a reference to bakery/beret guy ) Anyway, they...

On the subject of image manipulation, there must be a better solution than using MS Word to crop and resize images, but I'm yet to find it. If I want to take a screenshot of a particular area of some software (either for testing or documentation), I'll just paste that screen into word, crop and res...

The funniest thing I saw with a hands free headset, was someone walking up to me. He said "Hi, how you doing?" Being polite, although not having a clue who he was, I thought I say "fine and how about you? (who are you?)". Thankfully before I got a chance to he said "I'm fin...

Re: “Eagle” discussion

Good, a 'my hobby', those tend to be pretty decent. This one's fairly funny actually. The alt-text doesn't stand up to much scrutiny though. How would he know where to confront secret agents or what their code phrases are? Also how does he expect not to get shot? Hmm, only one man could potentially...

I don't know if that's posted already (if so, please ignore me), but there is one thing about unixkcd that caused some inconvenient when reading comic: if the comic is too big for your browser (over 1024*768, or 1024*600 for the netbook user), unixkcd won't let you scroll up to read the entire comi...

Looking closer at this comic, I realized that the girl's hair and scarf were fluttering in the wind... inside the cockpit. Assuming there is no significant airflow inside the cockpit of the plane, this should not be. But then I looked even closer; the plane is at an angle. Therefore, it must be acc...
