    I liked it. I think it was an interesting exposition on how school computers (which as a county we are thankful to have a very large and mostly up-to-date amount of computers) which are fundamentally flawed in that they are sometimes slow and cumbersome to use. I like how the sketchy and unfinished feeling to the comic represents the sketchy and unfinished treatment of the computers by our IT department, who are definitely the reason for the flaws highlighted here. I can identify with the character in the final panel as on occasion I have thrown a school computer while enraged while reading 9gag. However, the internet connection at school is in or above the 90th percentile of all internet connections in America, so you must have the fastest connection in the world at home, which I respect cordially. Thank you for identifying with my hatred for the school computers which I am graced to be able to use for nearly every class I am in.

    Really though, how often can you not log in? That has probably only happened to me once in four years. Slow internet?! Gosh, 768 kbps DSL is so much faster than dial-up, but Blair has over 10 Mbps and you call that SLOW? Don't complain so much; there are people in the world who don't even have electricity. But thanks for sharing your quirky comic.
