Webcomic Storyline: 

Kernel Panic, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

ARNAULT DRECK: Hello, my boy!

ALAN: Mr. Dreck!

ARNAULT DRECK: Surprise! I thought I'd stop by to see how my new Nifty Doorways server farm is doing!

ALAN: It's not a server farm, Mr. Dreck. And it's... er.. doing fine.

JACK: Hey, Alan, I --

ALAN: Jack! Look! Mr. Dreck has sopped by to see our NIFTY DOORWAYS network.

JACK: Oh, Hell.

ARNAULT DRECK: Beg pardon?

ALAN: He means "hello." You know how programmers like to compress data.
