Updating Your Peripherals

Comic Transcript

CUSTOMER: I’m trying to run “Age of Umpires” in a virtual Nifty Doorways session under Linux. Can you tell me the most important thing I need in order to get this thing to run properly?

ALEX: A lawyer.

CUSTOMER: Huh?

ALEX: Our game licenses expressly forbid running our games in virtual sessions, and our operating system licenses expressly forbid running our operating systems in virtual sessions, so you’d be opening yourself up to multiple lawsuits if you tried.

(Pause.)

CUSTOMER: I actually have a pretty good lawyer.

ALEX: Make sure your lawyer has downloaded the latest intellectual property patch in order to stay compatible with the most recent legal system upgrade.
