2.π: Hiring Spree

by Mark Bowytz in Mandatory Fun Day on 2009-12-31

This comic never ended up getting used in Mandatory Fun Day Series 2, and I figured what better time than classics week '09 to bring it out! Enjoy.

Magenta Kong

by Alex Papadimoulis in Mandatory Fun Day on 2008-09-04

One of my all-time favorite reader comics was Matt. C's #205432 ("Magenta Kong"). It was one of the many great reader comics on 2.6: A Roadblock. Since then, Matt. C has done the unthinkable: he turned Magenta Kong into an actual Flash-based game. It's built from entirely scratch in ActionScript without a single ROM hack in sight.

The 1.0 Alternates

by Alex Papadimoulis in Mandatory Fun Day on 2008-09-02

Since we're in Classics Week, I wanted to share a couple Series 1 comics that ended up getting cut. They star Zach, the lovable FOSS Fighter that also got the cut.

1.4: The Contractor Door

by George E McDougall in Mandatory Fun Day on 2008-02-15

In today’s MFD, I’ve decided to unleash my unbridled hatred on doormen and local artists. Actually, that was sarcasm. You see, I really don’t think all Linux users are like Zach, nor do I think all cowboys program in COBOL, and no, not all recruiters are shysters. What I’m doing is using stereotypes and personal experience to try to create humor.

1.3: It Pays Money

by George E McDougall in Mandatory Fun Day on 2008-02-13

Okay. So I read the comments you posted on the first strip, and I have to say, I cried for hours and hours. I get it. I suck: my PNG files are too big, I don’t know how to use apostrophe’s, and I can’t draw hands anatomically correct. In fact, I’m sure that any minute now, Alex is going to have a stern talk with me about how I’m not cut out for the web comic biz, and that I should come back after I grow some facial hair.

1.1: A New, High-Falutin' Web-Comic

by Alex Papadimoulis in Mandatory Fun Day on 2008-02-11

If there's one thing The Internet doesn't have enough of, it's Web Comics. Really, it's almost impossible to find a web-comic these days.

So, to help fill the void, I'm very excited to announce Mandatory Fun Day, a brand-new web comic about software, technology, and life as a corporate code monkey. Of course, since my artistic skills are below that of even stick figures, I've enlisted the help of fellow techie George E. McDougall. You may have seen his work before; he did the Codethulhu illustration.
