User Friendly and After Y2K!

If you're a highly intelligent computer geek, what's the most productive thing to do with your mind? Read comics, of course!

User Friendly follows the adventures of the technical support team at a small Internet Service Provider somewhere in America. Sounds dull maybe, but besides the usual golf-addicted bosses and clueless customers, the team find themselves dealing with everything from geek love on IRC to animated dust bunnies and killer robots from Microsoft.

After Y2K! began in 1999 as a comic speculation about how computer nerds would cope when technological society collapsed as a result of the 2000 bug. It's still going today, largely due to an incredibly twisted plot involving plenty of sci-fi elements and cameo appearances by famous geeks both historical and contemporary. Cartoonist Nitrozac adds to the visual appeal of the strip with brilliant use of colour and animation.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
