What is 0x2121.com?

I've always wanted to do a comic strip, but have lacked the artistic talent and general ability to make humorous remarks that the average non-me would get ior* appreciate.

And then... As fate would have it, a friend introduced me to a wonderful comic, xkcd, which proved neither of those things were sigificant limiting factors. I could write a comic for the sake of "why not". As such this comic is heavily inspired by xkcd as well as some of my childhood comics (including The Farside, FoxTrot and Calvin & Hobbes) which I'm sure are also partially to blame for my current state.

* think of an ior as a more concise and less confuzzing way to say "and/or".

Who is this RicMoo guy, and what's wrong with him??

He tends to procrastinate and put things off a lot. This will be corrected in future releases. Any new bug opened against this request will be auto-resolved as a dup.

What does 0x2121.com mean?

With the ever depleeting supply of reasonable domain names, one must be clever to get a decent one these days. Giving up after a few hours of trying to be clever, I settled on being nerdy and random. Everyone loves a good hexidecimal number, and any bash user will testify to the almighty power of "!!". Also, it's repeated, making it 2 less bytes you have to place into the persistent storage of your brain. And if you ever forget the domain (unintentionally), just remember a few simple keystrokes:

$ echo -n '!!' | xxd
0000000: 2121

What's next?

I'll fill more in this FAQ section as time permits and specific questions' frequencies approached the rate of "frequently asked" (by distinct persons).
