Comic for January 2, 2009: Smek!
Milo has a history of giving incredibly unhelpful answers.
And—hey!—gotta love those Stanley equations!
He forgot the thingymawooger and the whatchmacallits.
I used to wonder what a ‘gooey’ on a computer was. Sometimes technical terms just sound…silly. I know that it’s a Graphical User Interface now, but I still think Visual User Interface would stop people from going ‘lolwut’ when they hear someone talking about their GUI.
this is awesome so far. nice to see a nerdy webcomic that doesn’t constantly make jokes about programming!
@ Dartigen: Oh man, I like “thingymawooger”. I might have to steal that for use in everyday conversation, if you don’t mind.
But yeah, I know what you mean. I sorta suspect that people keep using some of these terms because they sound goofy. Another example: WYSIWYG, or “wizzy-wig”, for What You See Is What You Get.
@ Martin: Thanks! But I guess this means John and I might want to re-think our big 25-strip storyline about Jen’s ZANY attempt to implement a Fibonacci heap in C. Oh, SEGFAULTs: you’re so wacky!
I noticed the copyright 2009. Happy New Year!
John is on top of things! I’d probably have missed that detail if I were in charge of the drawin’.
Happy new year to you, too, Brad! And to all of our readers! Huzzah!
I an continually awe-struck by the bouyancy(sp? that looks wrong) of Milo’s hair.
