Over a week ago, I mentioned reading Frazz. Another fun comic I came across is called Dork Tower.

Kids Read Comics

If you are into comics and happen to be near Chelsea, MI (about 15 mins from Ann Arbor, MI) on June 12 & 13, you might want to consider going to Kids Read Comics comic convention. (As the name implies, it’s targeted at a younger crowd but don’t get discouraged by that.)

The guest list looks quite good (at least in my opinion).

About two months ago, I got introduced to a fun web comic, Frazz.

I was looking at some of the older ones, and I found one that amused me enough to share with you:

I have to say: bravo! MythBusters always bothered me. I find their pseudo-scientific approach irritating. It’s nice to see that I’m not the only one.

The Unthinkable: A Bad PhD Comic

I am very disappointed that Jorge Cham did the following two comics:



How dares he call computer science an "obscure and esoteric field". As far as I can see, companies are looking for CS PhDs, effectively begging them to join. Grrr….

Regular Expressions

Here’s something I stole from here:

Regular Expressions

I kind of feel like the hero in the cartoon at times…basically whenever someone asks me if something is possible to do in bash, I hack for a minute or two and then give them a nice script (which generally consists of some awk, which I am liking more and more, and possibly some sed). Sure, I don’t just write scripts for everyone at that asks for one, but I do it for fun when it sounds like the script should be sufficiently complex and enjoyable to do. Did I mention that I enjoy bash? Hrm. Speaking of bash, I’ll be presenting about it on Tuesday, January 30th at 7pm, for Linux Users Group @ Stony Brook. :)
