If black hat guy's hat got sucked into the black hole, he'd probably go in after it.

Re: 1542: "Scheduling Conflict"

I expected this comic to be posted on Thursday instead of the usual Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule RM is working with. That would have thrown all of us in a frenzy. RM would definitely have a laugh with that. :p

Re: "All Adobe Updates"

Words can't describe how annoyed I was (keyword "was") at the constant update reminders for Adobe's Flash and downloader stuff. Ended up uninstalling everything Adobe and have been happy ever since. Never really used Flash much to begin with. Also, everything Java is uninstalled now.

THG is hilarious. When I was in Japan, everyone lined up on the left side of escalators giving space on the right for people to run walk/run up. Not a single person I saw violated this unspoken rule, so much that I feared violating it. :P

Re: "Workaround" discussion

So true on the part of never to ask how a person gets around a computer problem. Just take it for granted that you didn't have to suffer for a solution for them, and they bash you for the complexity of it.
