« previous post | next post »

To understand today's xkcd, you need to know what A/B Testing is, what Linear A and Linear B are, what Aksara Kawi is, what JavaScript and some of its subtypes are, …

Mouseover title: "We wrote our site in Linear A rather than Aksara Kawi because browser testing showed that Crete script rendered faster than Java script."

Then again, today's strip may have an educational effect…

    JavaScript is what makes coffee shop employees mis-spell everyone's name.

    I thought Java script was when your doctor prescribes caffeine.
