When you don't give up.

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

They also require 2 factor authentication, which the public university likely did not. And the default answer for "Can this really useful software be installed?" is generally "no".

I find it incredibly annoying when I want to build something, that most of the time the first steps are "sudo apt install ..." when I do not have (and do not want) superuser privileges.

This is the same Department that gave Bradley (Chelsea) Manning a security clearance.
…just "Chelsea" is fine.

It's aggravating. I get that he has a life and may not have time and/or motivation to do the comic anymore, but he could at least do the courtesy of saying so. Even if he thinks he may pick it up again someday, some word that he's still alive and just on indefinite hiatus would be nice.

No, he doesn't OWE anyone anything. It's just something that would be the courteous thing to do.
*cough* check other posts *cough*

You realize I wrote that half a year before he made that FB post, right?

No. She was always Chelsea. That's the whole point. There's a reason it's called a "dead name" and why people aren't supposed to use it.

Better to make your peace with it now...

I think it was more of a case of him letting anyone that happened to wander in after the FB post know what was going on.

Registered just to say welcome back. Glad I would check the website once a week - then once a month and then once in a while. Checked it just days prior to it coming back live. Thank you for the humour and real life observations.
