Also, I didn't notice the clock until it was pointed out.  Ten hours?  Is the idea supposed to be that she'd expose herself to Mieville by standing up, and so doesn't want to?  Whatever it is, that is one patient cat.  And Dora's legs are going to hurt like fuck tomorrow.
Panels 3 & 4 show her trousers are very entirely on. If they weren't, she'd be exposed to us, never mind the cat!

Perhaps Microsoft has realized that the only way to get the stock price rising again is to sacrifice a version.
Much better that the ant puns.

Honestly, OS X is my favorite *nix as a user, although the key is partially that most of what you see as a user isn't the traditional *nix world - it's EXTREMELY different (which is what NeXT was going for back in the 1980s, I know).
Me too. I especially like the way I can run X Windows applications on the same desktop as Mac ones (albeit with different control conventions), and use the power of the command line, regular expressions etc. for system management and utility tasks.

Yes, you can fire up Terminal.app, and get a somewhat BSD-like userland, but even then, a lot of what you work with is still NeXT/Apple, not BSD.

I really liked the NeXT machines in the lab when I was in grad school.  Of course, at the time I was working at home with a VT100 salvaged from the trash and a 1200 baud modem to hook up to the Unix servers... [/oldschool]

Is it cold in here?

Are you averse to the ant puns?

Perhaps it would improve your peace of mind to sacrifice aversion.

Thank you, Dr. Karikó.
