There are times when I hate xkcd. Mostly these are:
1. When reading a discussion on /. and you just know a particular image will be posted.
2. When you spend hours searching for a specific comic that you're certain exists.
The latter is what bit me tonight - I'm certain there exists a cartoon which has a plot of:
Woman says hi.
Guy says hi.
Woman looks confused.
Guy realises she was talking to her phone, not him.
Cannot find the image for the life of me - only phone-related image I could find was tones.
I thought I might get lucky if I knocked up a quick hack to search the alt-text on all the images, but sadly not.
Still it was a fun project. To be uber-useful we'd need to persuade people to imput the text in each cartoon, along with the number.
Given that there are only 550ish cartoons published thus far creating a database would take a person a day, or a group of people a couple of hours.
Tempting .. very tempting ..
