Re: 1190: "Time"

Thanks :-) Actually, I would not be surprised if Randall hasn't automated his entire xkcd operation by now. He probably has programs that scan these forums and the web for comic ideas and generates them automatically. Heck, it was probably a program that came up with the idea for this very comic AN...
