[Comic for Wednesday, October 1, 2008]


[[Donald, Harmony, and Harry run past the sleeping Kerberos]]
Donald: That was easy.
Harry: Don't get too comfortable. McDongle said there were multiple traps and puzzles. We have to assume Kerberos was just the guard dog.

[[The three are stunned by what they see off-panel]]
Donald: Zounds...
Harry: Is... Is that the Napier's Bones?
Harmony: No, silly...

[[They stand in front of a wall of gears with two large, single-armed dials and a book on a pedestal in front of the wall]]
Harmony: It's a massive copy of the Antikythera Mechanism, one of the world's first mechanical computers.

[[Donald and Harmony face each other]]
Donald: And just how the bruisin' heck did you know that?
Harmony: Honestly. Didn't you pay attention in History of Computing class?
Donald: You mean "nap time"?
