What is this? an iPod?

Neat design

May 30th, 2008 at 8:23 am

xkcd did that joke already except with sandwiches, and sandwiches are delicious…

can’t be arsed to find the link however

May 30th, 2008 at 8:27 am

Messy and one hell of a bad design and structure! No shortcuts to the first or the last comic. If you are at the latest comic the “next comic button” is unclickable (good!) BUT it is square insted of round! (due to IE6 does not support png with transparency) Insted of textbuttons you have PNG pictures that does not go very well with IE6! You have so many design flaws in this design so i dont even know why you published it!

May 30th, 2008 at 8:33 am

freestream – Really? I thought I fixed the png-issues in IE6.. I’ll have to look that over again. No link to latest/first is intentional. So, that’s one design flaw, which will be fixed asap.. which wasn’t intentional, anything else? Constructive criticism is welcomed, please go on man, that’s the only way to fix it :)

May 30th, 2008 at 8:34 am

WampDiesel – I don’t read xkcd :-/ If I had, I’d probably not made the same joke :-(

May 30th, 2008 at 8:44 am

One more thing, your advertisement that should be on the right side is in the bottom of the page in IE6. Alsow the Feeds, Friends in crime etc. fields border have different design depending on with browser you are using (in my case IE6 and Firefox 2.0).

May 30th, 2008 at 8:52 am

jesus crap, I checked all that.. oh well, back to work for me >_< Thanks for the heads up man.

May 30th, 2008 at 8:57 am

Hey Lil’ Gamers! Very nice Nju page design. I want my wallpaper back tho! And the tagging feature – I used that all the time. Maybe I’ll try the RSS instead…

May 30th, 2008 at 8:59 am

ffs.. if you still use teh ie6 you DESERVE crappy designz on you internets.

May 30th, 2008 at 9:01 am

Hey, it’s not our fault IE6 sucks ass. They just browse our interwebz. But First/Last links, well, you know home brings you to the latest and everything else is available under archives… you know.

May 30th, 2008 at 9:02 am

Samuel, IE6 is one of the most commonly used browser in the world. It is not so east just to igonore issues that affect the bigger part of the world.

May 30th, 2008 at 9:03 am

Hey people, I figured out the RSS link for the whole site: The “RSS 2.0” link in each comments page is an RSS to that particular comments page..

May 30th, 2008 at 9:08 am

First/Last links -> Christian I meant the tagging feature (Tag this comic) – Its good for people who don’t check the site every day (I used to link to an older comic in the archive, then click “Go to tag” and Then browse through the new comix right till I got to the latest and tag it .. that way I haven’t missed a single LG =) But I’ll use the RSS instead now-much easier.

May 30th, 2008 at 9:12 am

“Tag this comic” will be back when I get back from my vacation if I can’t fix it before I leave :)

May 30th, 2008 at 9:20 am

for reference:

It is pretty funny that you came up with the same joke. Honestly, the joke doesn’t make sense to me anyway. How many people have a significant other simply named “root”? I’ve known a couple people with the last name “root”, but it wouldn’t work for most people.

The command should be “sudo -u $(SIGNIFICANT_OTHER_UNIQNAME) …”. Oh well. I’m too much of a *nix geek to enjoy the joke :-(

May 30th, 2008 at 9:21 am

A question, should the advertisement be on the right side of the “Feeds” field or under “Yearly archive”? because right now it is under “Yearly archive” in IE6

May 30th, 2008 at 9:22 am

Man, this comment thing is awesome, now we get all the feedback that you are too lazy to email us ;)

May 30th, 2008 at 9:42 am

Like the new look, but i do miss being able to read the old rants in the archives… even though they were old they did kinda let you know what was going on in the world on that day and read a little comment about it (no, i don’t read/watch the news… i like upholding the title of ignorant american =P)

May 30th, 2008 at 9:48 am

Mr.Madsen, this is it:

I love your comic, but honestly, xkcd made this one better :)

May 30th, 2008 at 9:49 am

You don’t read xkcd? Shame on you!
Go stand in the corner after adding it to your preferred bookmarking or feed reading tool!

May 30th, 2008 at 9:59 am

CTRL+A will reveal your sins! Over and under the comic strip is img tags, make them insted a part of the css code. The highligt of the links is greate, you know it is a link but the forward and backwards buttons does not have this feature, that is bad!

May 30th, 2008 at 10:04 am

And of course i meant the border around the strip in the last post i sent

May 30th, 2008 at 10:05 am

freestream – noooooo, no img-tags there.. well, yeah, there is :) Not that that really matters, that’s not what fucks up the part with the banner/linkpad, besides, it actually fills a function.

May 30th, 2008 at 10:14 am

If thoes img tags have a function how do you defend the meening of the blue/green/thing at the top the page? :P it feels….a bit of!

May 30th, 2008 at 10:18 am

for some reason the arrows on the side of the comic are invisible to me.

and good call on killing the link to the first comic. i’ve clicked that button at most 6 times, and 4 of them were by accident >.>

May 30th, 2008 at 10:19 am

freestream – I’ve sent you a mail, in swedish, hope you don’t mind.. and the thing in the top, that’s DESIGN! ;) .. and we will use that for something special later, just wait and see :)

May 30th, 2008 at 10:20 am

greeny – what’s your setup?

May 30th, 2008 at 10:21 am

firefox default skin vista/maybe it will work right next update

May 30th, 2008 at 10:28 am

figured out myself…. the contrast was too high. But that is the first time it has completely erased a button.

May 30th, 2008 at 10:29 am

LOL, nice one greeny :D

May 30th, 2008 at 11:30 am

mmmmmm, tranquil design…… no…must stay awake,…. read funnies…… zzzzzz… is xkcd…… zzzzzzzzzzz

May 30th, 2008 at 11:57 am

Argh! arrow keys moving me away from this comment input page/box thingie!!!! (3rd time I’ve tried to write something here!) (firefox 2)


May 30th, 2008 at 12:01 pm

Now, what I was going to say…

Grey on grey is rather hard to read….
Darker text or lighter background plix :)

May 30th, 2008 at 12:26 pm

Mr_Chicken – It’s be fixed now :)

May 30th, 2008 at 12:58 pm

Oh, nice quick load time on my work computer. gj

May 30th, 2008 at 1:02 pm


May 30th, 2008 at 1:13 pm

More colors plz thx

May 30th, 2008 at 1:46 pm

May 30th, 2008 at 1:57 pm

@Christian hopefully you’ll get some feedback from the peeps who have ‘always’ been too lazy to email too. this may also lead to lack of sleep, but i’m glad you’ve brought this upon yourself … shows the love!

@MrMadsen – You should maybe likes the xkcd, tho they’re quite hit or miss, some gems there, the 2 of you are the only ones i check religiously, so hopefully this convinces you :)

Oh & it all looks kick-ass to me … congrats on the smooth shift over!

May 30th, 2008 at 2:22 pm

I like the design, but the text colour is a bit too light.

It needs to be solid black rather than mid-grey.

May 30th, 2008 at 3:15 pm

Fecking Schweeet! Now we just need the spammers to figure out how to post porn links

May 30th, 2008 at 3:50 pm

Horribly lacking the ‘tag this comic’ button. Bring it back, pretty please?

May 30th, 2008 at 3:58 pm

Nice design! also fuck IE6

May 30th, 2008 at 4:28 pm

I’ve never loved XKCD, the art irritates me. I mean, I know that’s not the point and stuff, but it just grinds on me…

Good stuff Mr. M.

May 30th, 2008 at 4:33 pm

Neat design, I just miss being on my laptop cause IE6 really sucks but at least I can read you even if that b**** died this morning(laptop)

May 30th, 2008 at 4:45 pm

Mr.Madsen: I still have the proble with arrow keys moving an the comment box thingie.. and I’m using Safari. it happend like 5 time while writing this. I almost threw my Mac out of the window!

May 30th, 2008 at 5:26 pm


May 30th, 2008 at 5:39 pm

Kickass design, but will miss the old one to ofc
Just love the comic, the best on the net by faaaaaar
Keep it up guys ;D

May 30th, 2008 at 5:57 pm You should give it a read madsen, I think you’d like it.

May 30th, 2008 at 5:57 pm

Mr.Madsen: never mind.. it seems to work now.

May 30th, 2008 at 7:01 pm

Sudo read XKCD.
Seriously, it’s nearly as cute as LG.

May 30th, 2008 at 7:14 pm

Hehe, even if it was used my xkcd that joke never gets old ;)

May 30th, 2008 at 8:59 pm

she forgot to say the password :P

The Anarchyz
May 30th, 2008 at 9:54 pm

I liked the XKCD one when i saw it, and i like this one now, despite the similarity, the two of them have their own joke style so it’s cool.

May 31st, 2008 at 12:53 am

sudo what?

May 31st, 2008 at 7:00 am

May 31st, 2008 at 8:31 am

A great subtitle would be, ‘Or why geeks shouldn’t get married.’

May 31st, 2008 at 1:03 pm

Might want to mention that the arrow keys to scroll left and right seem to have an issue for me in Internet Explorer 7 (who uses it anyways?)…but work seemlessly in Firefox.

May 31st, 2008 at 1:51 pm

Email me your setup, and WHAT that’s not really working :)
“Seems to have an issue” doesn’t give me much to go on ;)

May 31st, 2008 at 2:59 pm

I don’t like how the the fonts looks on FF3 RC1 and Vista. They look blurry, like when using a non-native resolution.

May 31st, 2008 at 5:10 pm

Site looks great, FF3 RC1, Ubuntu
@Darkstar IE doesn’t follow the standards correctly, so if IE is the one not working right it’s because Microsoft just does what it wants and doesn’t care about you the consumer.

May 31st, 2008 at 6:45 pm

I wants psp site again D:

Looks awesome on a computer though =]

May 31st, 2008 at 8:34 pm

hilarious none the less

June 1st, 2008 at 6:17 am

Tisk. Whether or not you had read the comic beforehand, xkcd famously beat you to this joke years ago and it looks bad :P

June 1st, 2008 at 10:46 am

@Fara: You probably have the site zoomed. ctrl+mousewheel can zoom in and out in FF3, but will make any text in images blurry as a result. The setting change is preserved across multiple viewings of the site. If you don’t know how it should look, it can be hard to detect.

June 1st, 2008 at 10:21 pm

This was a bit of a shock when I first logged on the other. The new site changes are keeping with the times as well as user friendly and organized. However, it would be nice to see the site broken up with a bit of extra color other than the light blues at the top. Grey gets repetitive after a while ^.^

June 1st, 2008 at 10:22 pm

*edit* I meant “the other day” in the first line. ^.^;

June 2nd, 2008 at 6:21 am

June 2nd, 2008 at 1:30 pm

I read the other comments before replying myself, unlike most of these punters, so I won’t mention xkcd or anything.
I really like this new design, very smooth. My only problem is that the URL for each comic is by date now, instead of numerical order, which makes it difficult to keep track if (like me) readers only check in every week or two. If you could restore it to numerical order that’d be choice!
Love and cookies.
