Everybody loves Eric Raymond
A comic featuring esr, rms, Linus and others
Yep, you got that right. 100%.
Warning: Recursive comic
Stack overflow, core dumped.
What the bleep is RMS doing with my monitor? I thought that was packed away in the basement.
Now that is a meta joke.
So the second was actually 240… :D
It’s the Liar Paradox in joke form… it’s funny because he said it wasn’t funny. But if he had said it *was* funny, it would have been stupid.
I like it. :)
Finally! I was checking each and every day to see if there was a new strip.
Loved it, BTW :D
But why on Earth would rms have a Linspire sticker on his monitor?
Thanks for keeping them coming. :)
That’s Raymond’s monitor. It’s as likely that he’d live with him as use his monitor…
And we all know RMS uses a laptop anyway.
Thanks a lot – it was quite hard to wait for such a long time :-(
Can you explain again how we could help you making a new strip?
But Raymond uses Ubuntu, wich has some non-free software. Think about it, I’m sure rms would refuse to use it at all.
It took you some time, didn’t it?? Why oh why???
Hehehe! Ok, we were asking for it. =)
And i thougth you would like to go Offline… Thanks for the new ELER…
Recursive comic!? Awesome!
Last I heard, wasn’t he on the board of Linspire?
in soviet russia, rms hovers over esr’s shoulder!
Is it me, or is that an old Amiga monitor?
ELER’s RSS-enabled. — That’s for those of you who visit in vain every day for an update. RSS will take care of informing you when there’s a new comic.
But we just come for the comments…
A good one. Good answer to all of those who were waiting for another eler! And the punchline is not bad. Recursive comics rock ;).
do some GPL3 strips, mon
1) something GPL3;
2) even better: something about the invitation of linus by sun/schwartz and the together cooking;
Surely a scheduler debate comic. ESR must support a scheduler that prioritises whoever he is shilling for today.
@wjv: Yes, it’s a Commodore 1084 monitor. It was used with Amigas and C64/C128s.
Can we have “Fake ESR” now, or is that too much like a double negative?
It’s the third frame that makes the punchline work. The timing is just perfect. It’s still cracking me up.
yeah, it really is the third frame that makes it work.
More than worth the wait. \m/
The next comic should be,
er: “Is there a new strip yet?”
rms: “Hold on, let me check!”
The next ELER *has* to be about the SCO v. Novell lawsuit.
No it doesn’t. SCO .v Novell was a blip.
The next ELER has to be about the update to “Sex Tips for Geeks” and a new essay titled, “Surprised by irrelevance.”
ESR turns 50 on Dec 4.
Balmer turned 50 last year.
Gates turned 50 in October of 2005
McNeally turned 50 in 2004
Linus turns 38 on Dec 28.
Alan Cox turns 40 next year.
I expected a strip about Con Colinas slamming the door on kernel because his worldview was distorted by the cheerleading squad. It was so juicy, a perfect opportunity to accentuate the shallow.
everything i want to say has been said.
This calls for a fork. For new ELER strips please go to eler.novel.com.
Wouldn’t that person be Con Kolivas?
Keep ’em comin’.
How something about this :
Microsoft Axes ‘Get The Facts’
tom66 writes “Seems like a long time coming, as Microsoft today has axed it’s Anti-Linux campaign ‘Get the Facts’, and Microsoft has replaced it with a new campaign, called ‘compare’. This article touches up on why they may have done it, and the criticism surrounding Get the Facts.”

Heh heh heh. Well the idea behind it is a bit cheap, but this strip really gave me a hearty chuckle. OH MAN yeeeeaaahhhhh.
This one wasn’t funny at first but over the weeks it’s been growing on me.
Bit like fungus really….
It won’t be too much long until you need to re-post this episode :-). Maybe you can swap the heads just to show it’s new.
