the guy in the cube next to mine has that cartoon posted in his cube. I think he reads it every day, and once or twice has sent me a link.

I've looked at a few - they seem very hit-or-miss to me. I am not addicted yet, but can see myself becoming so...

Absolutely. There are many people in my company who are also addicted - as I wander along the hallways, I think I pass 5 cartoons just on this floor alone.

Initially I found it amusing it being geek oriented and all. Now I am addicted to it. I've bookmarked a few cartoons and look at them at not so infrequent intervals.

They can be quite instructive. I've explained the concept of SQL injection attacks with this one a couple times. I'm going to see fi I can sneak it into our coding standards document.
