XKCD Web Comic #1024: Error Code (described)

A webcomic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.













































Panel One: Drawing of a stick figure seated at a computer desk. Another stick figure is standing in front of a bookcase, taking down a large volume with the title “Error Codes.”

Person 1: “Error:-41″? That’s helpful. It doesn’t even say which program it’s from!

Person 2: -41? I’ll look it up. . .

Panel Two: The second stick figure is reading from the book.

Person 2: It says -41 is: “Sit by a lake.”

Panel Three: The two stick figures are walking away.

Panel Four: The two stick figures are sitting on the floor, one knees up and the other more sprawled back.

Panel Five: This panel is much larger and has a full color, photo-quality image of a beautiful, deep blue lake with lily pads, surrounded by greenery and topped with a softening evening sky.

Panel Six: The two stick figures are still seated on the floor.

Person 1: I don’t know hwere you got that book, but I like it.

Person 2: Hasn’t been wrong yet.

Hover text: It has a section on motherboard beep codes that lists, for each beep pattern, a song that syncs up well with it.
