I suspect that this meme will die off quickly; at the very latest, by the time every single xkcd comic has been altered to include the phrase "well, it's better than Vista."

For now, however:

Use the bloody "attach" feature.

Actually, I followed the URL and saw it. Don't bother. Nobody had to do that joke. The trick is to make xkcd "slightly" worse, by being clever. Not reapplying the same "Fuck. That. Shit." meme to Every. Single. Comic.

Same goes for the "vista" meme, with the exception of scikidus' first one.

It's called English. As in, "the language that derives from England." Consider learning it.

You're not one of those people who thinks "those people are evil because they speak some devil language and not English like Jesus did and I know he did because that's the language of the Bible," are you?

Ok, by the time I put up another page's worth of comics on the xkcd/sw archive, another 3 pages have been added to this thread. Either I'm being a lazy fuck, or y'all are hugely talented. I think it's the former, myself.

Anyway. Page 3 is up, taking the count to 104; link is in my sig, as ever.
