I’ll be at Connecticon in Hartford, CT this weekend!  There are some cool people there – I’ll be on a panel with the Cyanide and Happiness guys.  If you’re in the area, come say hi!  I should have mentioned Connecticon earlier, but I’ve been busy finishing up a project – more on that later!

Note: Some of the stuff in the article is no longer accurate – since then, I’ve gone back and redone the layout and comic selection myself.

  1. @Anonymous Coward:

    The purpose of the book is to provide fans with a piece of xkcd memorabilia, and to make a little extra money off of the comic. However, Randall is a fan of the creative commons, so we will still be able to easily access the comics electronically (right?)


  2. Holy shit, I want one of these books. I NEED one. Any way to preorder? And how about the chances to get the book shipped to Austria?

  5. Randall,

    Please do a pre-order.
    Otherwise you guys run the risk of drastically underestimating the level of demand and leaving us bookless!


  6. Hey Randall, Will Wright used your Map of the Internet in his keynote speech at SIGGRAPH today, just thought you might like to know. ;)


  7. Also, I think recaptcha could help enforce good coding practice in the hacking community by including more backslashes. Gotta love escape chars!


  8. Yes, a preorder would be great! When I read about your project, the first thing I did was to check with Amazon whether it was already listed.


  9. Hey there!

    It was totally awesome to meet you last weekend. Thanks so much for the enormous hug and signed drawing! Combined, they completely made my day. :P


  10. Why does the guy need 91% of his weight in bricks in the latest comic? Wouldn’t that make it HARDER for him to generate 9% of his body weight in lift?


  11. Harry: For the counterweight. 91% of his weight as a counterweight == while he’s in the air, he’s ‘weighing’ 9% of his proper weight.

    I’d order the book if I could. Sadly, not.


  12. Love the new comic. I once went to an undergrad class after 48 hours of being awake. My mind started dropping audio and video frames during the lecture. It was pretty entertaining.


  13. I fear the haiku fails. Top prime’s divisors? You need to consider the product of all the primes up to the (assumed) top.

    What’s a divisor
    of 1 + product of primes?
    Q.E.D., bitches!


  14. Can’t quickly see another way to suggest, so… I’m suggesting an xkcd episode somehow utilizing Penrose Tiles, perhaps on the floor or ceiling or an improved cellular phone tower locator… I’m sure you’ll come up with something great.


  15. Seriously, the most recent comic isn’t right, as jake said.

    The Top Prime’s Divisor’s are itself and 1… Their product is the same top prime, and that plus one is an even number, which is NOT prime… so fail. But still.
