For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD, or check out this Huffington Post article for additional links.

[Comic for Friday, August 22, 2008]


[[Harry Barker stands in front of the rest of the students facing Prof McDongle (Patty)]]
Prof McDongle: And Miss Stranger goes to Torvalds. Next... Harry Barker.

[[The sorting cat lies on Harry's hands, which are resting on a keyboard]]
Sorting cat: Hmm... nimble fingers... extended reach... a natural coder, no doubt. But where to put you? You have potential, boy...

[[Close-up of the sorting cat's eyes]]
Sorting cat: You could be great wherever you go. You could hack kernels under Torvalds, or elegant GUIs with Wozniak. Or you could take the harsher, darker path of Mitnick and taste the power of cracking another's system.

[[The sorting cat and Harry look at each other]]
Sorting cat: Tell me... where do YOU want to go?
Harry: Somewhere that makes all this mess make sense.
Sorting cat: TO TORVALDS!
