[Comic for Friday, November 21, 2008]


[[Ki walks by as Nick throws his hands up in despair]]
Nick: Arrgh!

[[Ki leans against the door frame as Nick looks furiously as his computer]]
Ki: Reverse engineering Fooker and Mike's code, I see...
Nick: This application is a disaster!

[[Nick gestures to his monitor]]
Nick: I can't make heads or tails of half of this. The modules are divided up in no logical order. There are recursive functions where a simple loop would do. This part is in assembler for no particular reason. And not a single comment! What were they on when they wrote this?

Ki: Fooker was sober. I can attest to that. Mike I never met.
Nick: What software design method did he use, the Dennis Ritchie drinking game?
