Re: 1333: First Date

Wow, this is the second time Randal has ripped off my first date comic ... even used the same title this time. They're sitting in the same positions, the girl has the same hairstyle... it's appalling, really. Just because most of my stick figure comics are a blatant mimicry of XKCD's style doesn't m...

Re: 1325: "Rejection"

I have some sympathy for the first speaker, if he's young.

Re: 1203: "Time Machines"

Personally I couldn't interpret what had happened from the minimal visuals, the only time I've ever had that problem with XKCD. It looked to me like the guy flipped the switch, causing the machine to start whining, and then unflipped it, ending the whine. All I got out of that was "they don't w...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I was watching at work this morning and it was going. Then I came home and the sequence has started over. Is it possible it is triggered per computer or per session? I think I saw a few people say it started over when they cleared their cache I just saw it for the first time and got the most recent...

Some questions about network/transmission security

Hi all, I had some questions about network/internet/etc security/encryption/moreslashes and I am always impressed with the insane amount of collective knowledge I see on the fora here so I thought it might be a good place to ask.

Re: 0936: "Password Strength"

Am I really stupid and missing something, or is all this brute force discussion made moot by the fact that most websites lock you out for 5 - 60 minutes after ~5 failed password attempts?
