Xkcd comics featuring computers, Orcs, video games

See why the 18 xkcd Webcomics in this TechRepublic gallery have geek appeal. Xkcd is created by Randall Munroe, who previously worked on robots at NASA's Langley Research Center.

I try to stay offline as much as possible when I'm working. If I do let myself wander around the web, I end up wasting too much time. But after a particularly rough day working on a project that feels like pulling teeth, I don't just wander online -- I look for comedy. Laughter is the best medicine and, for me, there's nothing better than witty, snarky comedy. Fortunately, xkcd comics are updated thrice weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays).

Check out the TechRepublic gallery of 18 Webcomics from xkcd, which are featured with permission by the comic's creator, Randall Munroe (he previously worked on robots at NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia). Xkcd does not promote any of the comics as favorites, but I do have a favorite in the gallery -- it's the last image about a Mom who knows her stuff.
