XKCD was the first comic site to gain recognition as a news aggregation site (with its first breaking story in 1999-2000), and was one of the early ‘old news’ aggregators/news sites. XKCD made a name for itself with the comic comic ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’, and even created the show’s own animated characters. Other comics to debut their own satirical news were the ‘Hoodlum’ and ‘Chowderhead’ comics, and others were able to take XKCD’s format seriously (think News aggregators like Newsweek, The Onion, The Atlantic, and CNN, the former four being sites that had been doing it for years and thus were almost as old as XKCD itself). XKCD’s story of the internet was the first, because until then, many sites used a ‘traditional’ website model on the internet.
With this in mind, we present to you a selection of XKCD’s recent news pieces; some of which are breaking and most of which are not; some news stories are still quite new (not much in the comics scene is new), and we also include a few new comics, which are not on the site at all. The new comics will be featured below in the section of the news articles that are breaking, all the others are still in development and will be added as future articles come up.
XKCD has announced a major new website. The homepage will include a large image of the XKCD logo, a new ‘X’ on the left side of the logo, an icon at the top-left which will display the current month (January 2012, February 2012, etc…), and the date, which will match the ‘old days’ of XKCD’s website.
The website will include a large list of news stories which will start each Friday morning at 6:00pm EST. There will be links to each story, including those links will come when the story is published on the site.
“After we ripped up, she blamed the painting,”
“After we ripped up, she blamed the painting,” The National Post.
A few days before Christmas, when a friend of mine who worked in an art gallery gave me one of the paintings in her collection, I was devastated. In an email, she said that he was a “stupid and superficial object”. There was no mention of the fact that, when she had gone to buy it, she had been warned that it would be stolen or damaged.
I thought things were going to get better. The painting sold for $2 million. She said it was the best portrait he had done in his life. I thought her response could have been made by another human being, possibly a saleslady who had seen the painting. Instead, she said the painting was her favourite, and was to be returned to her. Then she changed her mind and asked me to sell it – a request I resisted. I argued that it was so damaged that the best way to deal with it was to sell it.
I had to wonder then what had gone wrong between these two women. They seemed genuinely happy with each other; I had seen it on video and video tape.
The painting was sold in a private collection for an undisclosed amount. It is among the most valuable artworks ever to be stolen from the art gallery it was stolen from.
And there are a lot of them.
The owner of the gallery which sold the painting to its former owner, who is a retired general practitioner, said its “pale, fragile and in many respects almost unrecognisable” condition made it valuable. The work was described as “cadaverous” and one of the most expensive paintings to be stolen from a private collection.
The painting was taken from a private collection and then sold to a collector on the advice of a security guard’s colleague who had warned the seller of the risk the painting would be damaged or stolen. That guard’s colleague then gave the painting to a private collector, with instructions for the buyer to buy it sight unseen. According to the security guard, the buyer did so, and the painting was stolen.
The painting became a subject of both debate and controversy. Some gallery owners have been contacted after it was stolen.
Cueball’s first kiss
Cueball’s first kiss, in which her parents’ first kiss is made public. The details of the first kiss, and the first kisser who is making a name for himself by using this story as a platform. The two men kiss each other on the mouth in this very first kiss on a bed. At times, I was reminded of the scenes from the TV series “The O.
It was the first of a series of events in which his girlfriend had a first kiss with someone else. This was a real kiss, not some simulated one in the “O.
Cueball had made his first kiss debut in a story in the Sunday New York Times a few weeks earlier, about a boy who had a crush on a girl from his class. Cueball had not given up his virginity, though. He had decided that it would become part of him, a part of his identity, an aspect of himself that would be able to take him farther.
He was 13 or 14 years old, and he had been the first kisser, so he knew that he would always come first for his girlfriend. Cueball had been thinking of ways that he could make her come first too. In fact, he had decided to share the first kiss with another young man, although he did not have to; he could do it himself.
It happened on a Sunday afternoon, in late spring, at a room in the basement of an apartment building on East 82nd Street. The girl from the Times story, the one who had a crush on the boy from school, was sitting on a bed in the room with her parents, and they had invited him over for a drink.
When he arrived at the door, the mother of the woman who was talking to him said, “Come in, boy,” to him.
When he went to the bedroom and pulled back the covers, there was nothing that he could see of the girl. He could barely see her face; he couldn’t see her legs.
When Cueball pulled back the covers and looked at her, he saw something strange. He saw a woman, and the only thing he could see of her was her breast.

The Internet is a worldwide network of computers connected by telephone lines or cables. It can be accessed by people anywhere in the world, though most use it locally, in single or multiple homes, offices, or other locations. A computer connected to the Internet has two network interfaces: an Internet Protocol (IP) network interface with an IP address, and a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network interface with an IP address and port number.
When you open a new web browser such as Internet Explorer, you first establish a TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) connection with a web server or web site. The URL you type into the address bar of the browser looks like this: www. If it is possible to log in to a computer connected to the Internet through a firewall, you may be able to use the URL above to connect to the computer. If the computer is behind a firewall, you may find it easier to set your browser to log you in as soon as you enter the URL. However, when you are using a firewall-protected computer, you shouldn’t enter the URL without entering the port number.
Before you can connect to computers on your local network, you must establish a connection to the Internet. Usually this connection is established by using a dial-up modem. When you open a network page on a computer, the page requests the computer’s IP address and port number, and then sends the request over the IP network.
The IP address has a network identifier, which in turn has a host identifier.
Tips of the Day in Network Security
With so many vulnerabilities and malicious threats that appear on the rise, finding the right software for your organization or individual has become a complex task.
Fortunately, many companies and individuals understand the importance of a strong, secure network. They also recognize the need to protect their personal information and keep a close eye on their own devices. Unfortunately, in the ever-increasing number of attack scenarios, this task can feel daunting.
One of the most effective solutions is to use software that helps you protect your network. This is especially true of the more sophisticated attacks. Many of the most sought-after malware infections are designed to infect both the device itself and the user of that device.
If your system goes down, you can rely on your antivirus technology to protect your personal data. However, malware or other attacks can target personal computers by exploiting flaws in the application itself.
