[Comic for Wednesday, June 3, 2009]


Zero One: Brother Knuth?
Knuth: I've confirmed one IP, the second hacker who kicked off the first. It's "Mirage".
Man 1: "Mirage"?

Zero One: Knuth's codename for him. We don't know who he is, but his IP sporadically uses tons of encrypted bandwidth for unknown reasons. We've been watching him for a while, and he shows considerable skill at covering his tracks. That he defeated the original hacker is no surprise. And the first, Knuth?

Knuth: He's good at tunneling lots of Tor use, SSH redirects... but I think I tracked him to a cable modem out west. I'm cracking his ISP's database to get a name and address now.
Zero One: Excellent.

Man 2: What do you intend to do, Zero One?
Zero One: An old saying goes "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." I'm going to invite him to join us.
