This is the story of dogs.

Also I won't be drawing one tomorrow (January 17th)!

As always, anyone is welcome to at any point.
We'll see what happens!
Either way!

With just moments to go!
The comic chain continues!

It's hard to look at the back of the box in my local CompUSA when there are no boxes nor CompUSAs.
Also Joystiq stopped existing years ago and that was the only games blog site I regularly followed (and this one, of course).

I keep hearing things about games I have no idea what they are.
What are the good games?
Any genre, style, online, offline, browser, download etc...

I didn't mean to but I ended up listening to that whole episode and it was actually quite informative.
Thank you Brandon!

Also, I was looking back through the thread:
Pounds sterling, i.e british money.

Doesn't matter anyway, i found one already.

I think it's worth noting, Munchkin is the only forum member who explicitly said he found a whole bitcoin back in 2011 and then he disappeared in November of that year.
I am not saying these things are related, but these things are definitely related.

Ovi and Gauph Comics! YES! Thank you for doing your doing things!

Does this work?


<_<

I'm counting this as three comics.

Everything Else / Re: Has Google been getting worse as a search engine?
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:29:19 am »
I thought it would be worthwhile to update this conversation with a look at the criteria Google actually uses in asking people to evaluate search results as high, medium, or low quality:

https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf

Not saying it helps or hinders the phenomena I was talking about earlier, just thought it was interesting.

This answer, for instance, addressed one of my direct concerns:
Quote
Are we just giving High quality ratings to pages that “look” good?
"No! The goal is to do the exact opposite. These steps are designed to help you
analyze the page without using a superficial “does it look good?” approach."

Which is good! But I'm not always sure how well that's put into practice.

There have been times I find incredibly worthwhile, directly relevant, primary academic content from a respected expert on a particular subject, but the website is buried on a University domain and looks like it hasn't been updated since 1999.

And it'll show up on Google eventually, but it takes me, like, 30 minutes of trying out and winnowing search criteria on Google before it'll even start allowing me to see sites like that (6 or 7 pages back).

They do have Google Scholar though, which I'll admit I haven't used as much, and may actually address some of these issues.

In that same vein, Google Books is both a magnificent human achievement and a frustrating tangle of copyright issues. There's a fantastic Atlantic article on the subject:

https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/04/the-tragedy-of-google-books/523320/

Much as we feel like the internet's an infinite repository of information, I think we can also trick ourselves into forgetting how much we're not seeing.

I am probably not going to have a comic today!

Anyone is, as always, welcome to post one, or not post one, but either way!

Everything else aside, given the extent to which serious people in the finance world are talking about Bitcoin now, I kind of wish it had a sillier name.

Pizzacoin is a thing.

We could all be using the term Pizzacoin right now instead of Bitcoin, but here we are.
