Now you can see why the BOT is written in PERL;). But I have to be honest, there are also different versions causing similar problems... --Dgbrt (talk) 14:26, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Is pictorial misspelled as pictoral? -- 19:08, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Wiktionary says: "Probably an alteration of pictorial..." But please add new comments to the bottom. --Dgbrt (talk) 21:03, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Currently working on a table with everything. Note: Programs are boxed, and file paths are just strings. Chbs (talk) 14:44, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

I never will understand why you guys always create tables...--Dgbrt (talk) 15:59, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Convention? IDK. Chbs (talk) 17:06, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Of course there is no convention, but often a floating text is a prettier layout. And it's easier for the editors because a single wrong char can corrupt the entire table. But we always get tables here... --Dgbrt (talk) 17:49, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

"using sudo to install python packages" is probably a reference to the "(Misc folders owned by root)" Chbs (talk) 17:06, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

I swear every so often Randall just releases a comic like this to mess with us... Just in case the last few ones have been too easy. Linker (talk) 14:58, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Created by a PYTHON script (well actually PERL but that's besides the point (I know a lot of people who would fight you over that comment)) - why would people fight me over this comment? Zachweix (talk) 15:25, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Only in the sense of "How dare you imply that python and perl are interchangeable!" Cgrimes85 (talk) 16:06, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
I've removed the "lot of people". Comments are going here. --Dgbrt (talk) 15:58, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
They aren't interchangeable, but in respect to the comment above it is besides the point Zachweix (talk) 16:22, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Isn't the joke that installing multiple versions of Python has resulted in a Byzantine set of $path declarations, pointing all over the place? The title-text/alt-text reference to nuclear waste does not seem like the central joke, but merely compares the difficulty of cleanup. ProphetZarquon (talk) 16:25, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

May a file system which uses HashIDs for version tracking allow files stored anywhere within that file system to be accessible by only referencing their hash, without the use of paths? Seems like "folders" are not as useful as relational tags would be. ProphetZarquon (talk) 16:25, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

My has this problem. System Integrity Protection won't let me update python libraries, so whenever I need to update a library I install it in a different place and have to switch to the new version. I can't actually uninstall anything because of SIP, so multiple versions of every library I have ever used will remain on my computer forever. 18:56, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks to the editor who added the article about the WIPP warning messages. I'd been looking for that source for a while. Cgrimes85 (talk) 13:27, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Whoever added this pretty rude 2nd incomplete tag: who do you think you are and what this is!? we are volunteers, not your personal data entry monkeys. 00:07, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Huh, seems no one mentioned the atrocious pun of storing homebrew in cellar. -Tanz
