hmm - RTFM (1.9/04) - 00:29 25 Feb 2004
that's right! show them Simon!
philpem - RTFM (1.9/04) - 10:46 24 Feb 2004Go ahead, printing one strip goes clearly to the "fair use" category :)
Thanks for yet another funny little comic. Dare I
print it out and put it up next to the "RTFM"
sign? Yep. :P
borg - Mark's past (1.8/04) - 14:19 18 Feb 2004Nah, it's actually reference to the real Star Trek TNG. I consider the Borg one Roddenberry's best addition to the Sci-Fi genre and I just had to spoof that :)
Keo - All over the place (1.7/04) - 21:11 11 Feb 2004
enemy territory! :)

DrL - Curiosity killed the Borg (2.6/04) - 10:02 06 Feb 2004Depends on your point of view :) Check out the upcoming strips and you'll see what I mean :-)
Gosh! So much for the Borg?!?:)
KeoKeo - So much for Magenta? (1.5/04) - 15:57 27 Jan 2004You're right :) That's my nod to Bittivuoto for mirroring the comic.

jza - 13:01 24 Jan 2004I used to have an option to remember the last read strip, but it caused me more "how is this supposed to work" E-mails than it was worth. I've been rethinking the whole thing, but haven't come up with an idi... err.. home user proof system quite yet. Rest assured, the future versions of D-Zaster (the engine running ICCL's site) will have the bookmarking ability.
I wonder why any of the web comic sites I've seen
haven't thought of this, but wouldn't it be nice
to have a cookie to remember the last strip the
user has read?
By the way, it seems
that Hackles reached it's end. Quite sad,
although it's nice to still have ICCL. :)
Hackles ending is a real shame, the world needs more unix-humor :-)
b.o.f.h. - 18:37 04 Nov 2003You're right, it's not a coincidence. And if you take a closer look at the cast, you'll notice that Simon's first name and Deirdre's last name make up the name of BOFH's author. I've always loved BOFH and this is my tribute to it.
Hmm, it's probably not a coincidence that one of
the main characters has "Simon" as his name and
is the systems operator ( read more:

stories, they are really fun!
Then again, there's more in the names than just a nod to BOFH :)
And if you liked BOFH, try reading my version of it; you'll find the link in my reply to thebanzai's message. The main character's way more humane than BOFH and he actually has a reason to be such a menace :)
thebanzai - 19:00 03 Nov 2003The comic is based on a novel that went by the same name. The english version is under way and you'll find the original, finnish version here.
There's something that hits the nerve on this
comic! Bad weather, a city in the middle of
nowhere, lonely geeks..
