The GPF site will be undergoing maintenance this weekend (most likely Sunday, April 2nd) that may render some parts of the site inaccessible. Individual pages may "break", fail to render properly, or generate errors as we perform a series of upgrades. Ideally, the process should not take more than an hour if we don't encounter any major problems. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

[Comic for Sunday, May 15, 2005]


[[The GPF gang at Sharon's. Nick is holding a board game labelled, "Linuxopoly"]]
Nick: Have they truly gone too far when they come out with a Linux version of "Monopoly?"
Fooker: If it's an actual board game and it doesn't use gnome OR KDE, then yes.
Nick: Somehow, I think there's more irony to it than that.

Ki: I get to be Tux!
Nick: Then I call Linus Torvalds.
Sharon: Eric S. Raymond.
Fooker: Nuts. Does that mean I'm stuck with Richard Stallman AGAIN?

Ki: Let's see. St. James' Network with four PCs is 750 cycles.
Nick: Darn. At least you haven't built a server yet, you tyrant.

Sharon: Well, I landed on "RAND," so I have to draw a card. "Your latest market share numbers make a vein pop in Steve Ballmer's forehead. Collect 250 cycles."

Ki: ... five, six! And that puts me on "Open Source!" I get all the cycles in the kitty!
Sharon: Ack! And I just paid that proprietary OS tax!

Sharon: You're on a "Community CVS." Draw a card!
Fooker: "Go to SCO. Go directly to SCO. Do not pass GNU, do not collect 200 cycles."
