Cueball does not think in multiples of 2, he thinks in base 2 (or powers of 2). I fixed it. 10:35, 10 September 2012‎ (UTC)

In the original Blog format of this website, someone named Phillip had shared the following:

"Spoiler ( http://rot13.com/index.php ): Pbaarpg gur ovanel ahzoref ba gur fznyy fvtaf va cnvag-ol-ahzoref znaare."

Hint: copy/paste the weird looking text into the text field provided in the above mentioned website. Even after decryption, I couldn't follow what he meant, but I was hoping someone out there can do so and then explain it differently, thanks. It's a real mystery.

Added hidden image to Trivia section. --B. P. (talk) 11:06, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Just curious... The explanation says there are 1000 characters in the drawing. Are there 998 + Megan & Cueball? or do they make 1002? --B. P. (talk) 11:06, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

The transcript says "1000 characters ... are arranged to create the number "1000". Two more people stand in the foreground" so I think Megan & Cueball make it 1002. Coombeseh (talk) 10:56, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

There's a WOPR machine saying "would you like to play a game?" 05:51, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

I noticed Barrel Boy isn't on here... Jimmy C (talk) 19:10, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Barrel Boy is bottom right on the second "O", just above "WOOOO!" Coombeseh (talk) 10:56, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Well about what cueball says another interesting fact is that the number 1024 is used commonly in computer data, 1024 megabytes makes a gigabyte and so on...

So, has anyone noticed that this wasn't actually Randall's thousandth comic, but rather his 999th? Schiffy (talk) 16:44, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Is there a numbered comic that was omitted? 13:10, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes, comic 404 never existed, remember? Schiffy (talk) 17:04, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Comic 404 was "Journal 3". 04:24, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Or maybe Comic 404 DID exist, However was left behind within the bowels of abandoned comics... Never got into xkcd to fill the gap... Because it's place was replaced with the 404 page. 04:25, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, All hope is no use, I googled up "xkcd 404" and it gave no results about a 404th comic ever existed, Nor "xkcd no 404" or "xkcd's 404th comic", I guess we have to discuss about this in here: http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=80760 04:29, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Even this very site shows that Comic 404 never existed. Comic 403 was on a Monday, and 405 was the following Wednesday. The day in between those two (the Tuesday of that week) was April 1st. For further proof, see here. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 17:39, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Hey, that's the April's fool from 2008. The 404 message is from Randall!!! Check the page source: April, 1--Dgbrt (talk) 18:51, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Not quite true. See link -> [1] (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
Hi IP, your link shows a comic not done by Randall. The 404 page is just empty and that's the joke. --Dgbrt (talk) 20:03, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
The "1000 Characters" section

I really don't see why it should be there. 03:43, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

I did remove this. All the 1,000 comics are explained here very well. --Dgbrt (talk) 20:34, 8 January 2014 (UTC)


Following with this wiki's goal of explaining the nuances of the XKCD comics I moved the connect the dots puzzle out of trivia and placed it int the main article. It isn't a spoiler or just trivia, it fits well with the title text and is definitely not something a casual reader would find on the first pass through the comic. Chriswampler (talk) 13:13, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Why is this still Incomplete? Unless someone wants to catalog all 1000 characters, there's not much left to do. 17:34, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Useless fact: 1024 is also a round number in base 4 and base 32. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
