[Comic for Monday, March 8, 2010]


Days pass...
Nick (thinking): Finally! People are commenting on the "ZKRMFGQ" forum!

Wartortle (from on screen): Awesome app, Gort! But I think I found a bug in parser.c, line 342. You failed to initialize a variable before use. See the attached patch. Hope this helps. - Wartortle

Nick (typing response): Thanks for contributing. Unfortunately, I think you misunderstood the meaning of the code. The allocated memory is not initialized on purpose, adding a small bit of randomness to the entropy pool. I'm rejecting your patch, but please contribute again. - Gort

Wartortle (from on screen): What kind of tyrant *are* you? Too afraid to let anyone touch your precious code? This is open source pal! If you can't take the heat, stay out of the source repository...
