The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

Transcription

[[Nick and Fred are heading towards GPF software in the new building]]
Nick: Are you sure that Dwayne asked you to come in today? You're supposed to be telecommuting.
Fred: He's handing out bonuses today, and he can't do that over the phone.

Nick:What about Trent's restraining order? You two aren't supposed to be in the same building.
Fred: Bah. He can get over it. He'll get his bonus, too, so all he'll see today are dollar signs.

[[Trent is showing his paycheck to Sharon]]
Trent: Heh, heh...look at all those zeroes! You can always tell who's a _true_ asset around here...

Sharon: Like your bonus is any bigger than anyone else's.
Trent: You geeks may do all that computery crap, but it's _sales_ that drives the work to you. I'm invaluable!

[[Trent reclines in his office chair]]
Sharon: Without redeeming value is more like it.
Trent: Ridiculous! Geeks are a dime a dozen. Marketing wizards are as precious as diamonds.

[[Trent is looking at his paycheck in his office chair. Fred is forming pseudopods behind him]]
Trent: Now my pretty little check... what kind of wild time are we going to have tonight?

{{Fred uses his powers of "remote control" on Trent, and has by now mastered halting his vocalizations}}
