episode 12 strip

This is really just a stop-gap strip and I’m already working on a new one to be posted asap.

The link is bringing in thousands and thousand more readers. Hello. My server is working hard but handling the load ok (even though it’s Apache ;).
And don’t worry, I won’t be putting any adverts on here.

  1. The Truth of Open Source

    This new comic strip is superb!

  2. Found the site through BoingBoing! Find of the day IMHO. Keep up the superb work.



  3. I’m one of the thousands. *Very* funny stuff. Excellent work!

  4. it aint just boingboing, u hit the blogsphere…

    …and fuggin funny it is too…

  5. Great. I laughed, I cried…I ate burritos.

    So what do you use to publish this site, like in the way of CMS?

  6. can i get a



  7. [...] Everybody loves Eric Raymond » Sell out —- [...]

  8. This strip in general is so amazingly, fatally nerdy it reduces me to a kind of giggly, yet ashamed, geek stupor. I read them all this afternoon and I love it! If you can work in a GNAA reference my bliss will be complete.

  9. “So what do you use to publish this site, like in the way of CMS?”

    He uses WordPress.

    You can find it here:

    Great strip btw.

  10. I can’t find the humor.

  11. >I can’t find the humor.

    Because you’re stupid?

  12. I’ve been walking around all day saying “Feel my dictator powah!”

    My secretary is phoning in for an intervention . . .

  13. >I can’t find the humor.

    OMG! Shut the site down! A random punter doesn’t find it funny. What next?

  14. I have a feeling this comment thing is going to start looking like a forum. I forgot to say but i found this place from boing boing as well.
    Still the coolest computer “geek” comic alive.

  15. Is that a toaster in the laserjet ad?

  16. I too found my way here through Boing Boing, and I really like the strips. However, to be able to keep reading it I would like an RSS/Atom feed, but I cannot find one. Are there any plans for something like that?

  17. boingboing ownz.
    And if Apache starts to feel faint, you can always switch to thttpd.

    \m/ rock on.

  18. Hiliarous! Lovely toons – definitely spot on! Keep up the great work!

  19. Great comic. The only problem–and this is hairsplitting–is that RMS is American, and would probably spell the word “neighbors”, without the U. But as I said, that’s just hairsplitting.

  20. Love the work, way better than any comic I could come up with.

  21. Hey, your RSS feed doesn’t seem to include inlined images. Please fix, so we can see these on LiveJournal? Thanks!
    ( E.g.: )

  22. Tee hee

    Yeah ESR nibbles my sack. He’s a joke now.

  23. Open Source Comics

    Love or hate ‘em, Eric Raymond, Richard Stallman, and Linux Torvalds make hilari

  24. I’m coming over for a visit next Tuesday to straighten these girls out.

  25. Hey, Eric looks like Lord of the Rings’ Smeagol in that picture, don’t it?

  26. fantastic.

    and I found the site from Lessig! that’s classy.

    anyone that doesn’t find it funny should not be given root privs.

  27. nice!

  28. Knowing nothing about programming, this strip leaves me with very little sympathy for Eric Raymond

  29. “Knowing nothing about programming”

    You’ve got more in common with Eric than you think!
