    No hidden joke in this one, but don't take off your Sherlock hats just yet - we've hidden some Easter Eggs inside the panels for you to find and enjoy, we'll see who can find them all! :D

    I noticed the Switch model number for the Full Name...

    The chick is being controlled by a Nintendo Switch running L4T-Ubuntu, isn't she?

    D-Di-Did...

    DID COSTELLO-SAMA NOTICE ME!?

    It's pseudo script, to be fair. :P But you are right - slight oversight, if this was C she would error out! :O In BASH "==" is an equality operator, functions the same as the POSIX "=" AFAIK.

    EDIT: Not that it matters as she's writing plain text into a file, so the exact formatting depends on how she parses it later, as pointed out below. ;)

    Interesting setup. GPS software to get her location, writing plain text to a database file, possibly a sqlite database file, then changing user name using an unknown command, then finally making an administrative command to save the registration information changes.

    Someone knows what's up! :D Funnily enough, "chfn" is actually fairly common in Linux, it's used to do just that - change personal details of the account holder, in distributions that store such information. You're on the right track too when it comes to the other operations, but there's more to it, for anyone keen on following the thread all the way to the ball of yarn. ;)

    Like using Blue hair and Red Head for the posters in the 3rd panel? Playing an NES in the final panel on an old CRT TV with rabbit ears, while there's a poison mushroom in the right edge of the panel? The statement about sucking eggs is also an old one I've heard before, meaning "don't tell me what I know how to do". Or how about the Chinese symbols in panel 4 that reminds me heavily of Mega Tokyo?

    Oh!!! I see it! (I actually don't see it, but I figured it would be funny.)

    It's mostly Linux references. Commands and pseudo code.

    I understand the purpose in building a story at the same time as a comedy comic strip, but keep in mind Garfield still made every 3 new panels have a punch line, including when Odie was introduced and shit

    That's very, very odd. The comic is most definitely up, perhaps you could try clearing your cache, or failing that, you can follow a direct link here. Sorry for the inconvenience!
