An actual woman

episode 6 strip

In case you’ve not been paying attention, those are pretty much actual quotes from Eric Raymond and Richard Stallman regarding this very comic strip.

A new geek celebrity comment, from Linux kernel coder Dave Jones over at Red Hat:

“One of the funniest things I’ve read in quite a while … It caused much hilarity at the Red Hat office last week”

Site news: I’ve licensed the ELER strips under a Creative Commons license.

I’ll make some gimp files available soon too.

  1. Interesting concept! This particular strip is a favorite of mine. However, I’d have you know that Eric wouldn’t be caught dead in a shirt as tacky as the one in the strip. :-)

  2. Hi Cathy. Glad you like it. It was a pleasure cutting you out. And yeah, that shirt is rather eyebreaking. It was one I actually used to wear but my girlfriend has now forbade it. The guy who is Eric’s stand-in body quite likes it actually.

  3. Eric seems to think I look like somebody not-to-be-screwed with too; I appear to be the only one who disagrees on that score. :-)
