Deployment Environment Changes

I like the thought of a presentation just being a single slide containing the word “No”, but I think that an ops department that’s this opposed to environment change is actually really troublesome for a tech company, especially one that is canonically devoted to chasing hot new technologies.

Warbeard is kind of bad at his job.

Shit Show


#63

DB2

The target demographic for this joke is “the three people I know at SFU who had to look at the ancient DB2 database tables”. I’m… I’m trying to write jokes for a more inclusive audience, nowadays.


#64

Civilization

Ha ha I think I missed work


#65

Cabin

One of my friends has a beautiful lake-house on Shuswap lake that I visit every now and then. I spend most of my time inside with my laptop and books. VACATION!


#66

Inbox Zero

I don’t know why people have so much trouble getting to inbox zero. Just delete it all.


#67

Ice Cream Entendre

True story.


#68

The “this” Keyword

My grasp of good “Who’s On First” humor is clearly still pretty lacking.


#69

Font Nerdery

Around this time, I think I was first meeting Tiffany, a graphic designer who (several years later) would eventually become my wife. It really helped me flesh out Lain’s character.


#70

Moving Out

I moved from New West to South Vancouver. The new place was much nicer, but boxes are the worst.


#71

Moving Out pt. 2

I guess the joke was that some moving tasks are a lot like programming things? I guess?

Also look at that stray line.


#72

Bad Joke Saturdays Returns


#73

I Went Somewhere Tropical


#74

Apache Cheesepocalypse

Ha ha, as if Android were actually open or a community project in any way. What was I thinking?


#75

Triviality

I’m on Team Semicolon, unless you’re programming in Python, at which point you need to execute a semicolonoscopy.


#76

Morning People

My younger brother is a UBC engineer. There’s no real joke here.


#77

Virus Bankruptcy

Sometimes you let other people touch your computer. Then you learn not to do that.


#78

Reinstalling Windows

Windows 8 thought 10 really embraced the philosophy of just popping up a screen that says “SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED”. I guess they figure technical details are scary?


#79

MMORPG

And then I didn’t post any comics for a month.


#80

Inappropriate Office Behavior

If you remember correctly, Lain was firmly against the Google Goggles (“Googly Eyes”) not 50 comics ago. I guess I forgot about that?
