Do you read?

http://www.dilbert.com/ is a classic

This recent one was quite humorous: http://www.dilbert.com/2012-03-11/

I also like: http://geekandpoke.typepad.com/

and this is quite possibly my favourite comic strip ever: http://i41.tinypic.com/vdl7jd.jpg

While not specifically computer oriented xkcd is required reading.
Any conversation about a sufficiently complex subject is indistinguishable from babble.

Whilst I don't tend to read them as much anymore, I used to quite like the following;

UserFriendly

Real Life Comics

PVP

There was also Kid Radd, which is more of a video games-related comic, which ran as one big, self-contained story from 2002 to 2004, which I followed from start to finish, and which is well worth reading if video game culture interests you in the slightest.

There's a mouse-over on resistor blob in lower right quadrant

Oh come on….

That receives Radio 4 Longwave perfectly!

Another xkcd that I've found very helpful: http://xkcd.com/627/

Edit:  Perhaps a link to this in a sticky would be helpful when new members are having problems???

Very true - my father is always saying "you are the computer guy" as if I have a god-given gift to be able to solve any problem

At risk of this turning into an xkcd love-in, I try to make sure anyone who joins our development team sees this one before they get anywhere near any DB code. Simultaneously hilarious and deadly serious.

Re: 730

Warming my hands over one right now. Will effective discharge a auto battery in 34.25s. You could probably bring down the entire eastern US power grid with this circuit... OH S**T!!! There's a FLUX-CAPACITOR in this circuit!!!  I think I just caused the great northeastern blackout of 1965 :-[

Re: 627

G-dammit!!!! Wish people would stop telling the SECRET! I've got bills to pay! We used to get away with $75/1st hr + $35/each half hour doing this… and I'd still be DOING it if it weren't for you MEDDLING KIDS!!!
