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.

[Comic for Friday, November 28, 2008]


[[A table is cluttered with pizza boxes, soda, and pieces of paper with writing]]
Narrator: The following evening:
Nick (offscreen): This pizza's pretty good. Does Fooker know about this place?
Ki (from across the table): He... might be aware of it.

[[Ki and Nick each look at a page while the clock reads 10:15]]
Nick: OK, I think I've figured out "foobaz.h"... assuming no recursive includes, it calls "barney.h", which includes "fred.h" and "dino.h"...
Ki: Yabba dabba yuck.

[[Nick hands Ki a page]]
Ki: I don't see how you came this far.
Nick: It wasn't easy. I couldn't follow the include path until I started mapping out a chart. See for yourself...

[[Ki stares at the page, wide-eyed]]
Ki: It's... like a Rorschach test. I think it's boring into my soul...
Nick: It's like a fractal. Infinitely beautiful and frightening at the same time.
