This reminds me of the philosophical thought that "...a person dies three times. The day he dies. The day the last person who knew him dies. The day his name is spoken for the last time." Makes you think, eh? 20:15, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

By "their screen sessions linger," does it mean litteral GNU Screen sessions? Ad1217 (talk) 04:00, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes. SCREEN is in the greped output of ps in the comic 17:16, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

irssi (Internet Relay Chat client software) process running in SCREEN session possibly means that Sam is logged on to the IRC and appears as a live person on some talk channels. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I'm not sure "old fashioned" is a correct description here. Modern Unix systems do this, too. 00:02, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

In my opinion this comic might contain a reference to the more or less popular movie "Ghost" ( ) as well, since the main character in this movie is called "Sam", too. -- 09:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
