Acts of Contrition

Webcomic Storyline: 

Kernel Panic, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

JACK: Hey man, I'd like to --

ALAN: Hold that that thought.

ALAN: What is your current status here?

JACK: ... office pariah.

ALAN: And why is that?

JACK: ... in a fit of drunken coding, I created an uninstall program for Ubersoft's paperclip that it then co-opted and "optimized"into one of the most destructive computer viruses ever known to man.

ALAN: So what is it you wanted to do?

JACK: ... to go back to my desk and think about what I've done.
