User Friendly, by J.D. "Illiad" Frazer

I had forgotten about User Friendly till I stumbled across it again today.

User Friendly is a delight if you're a techie—or if you at least play one in the library. In fact, if you don't have at least a librarian's grasp of tech-ese, you may miss much of the humor.

For a better sense of what's going on, check out the Character Gallery. The little fuzzy guy on the logo is Dust Puppy. He was "born inside of a network server, a result of the combination of dust, lint, and quantum events."

There's a good archive, including a breakdown by storylines.

Here's the start a storyline called "Greg nukes a customer." It ran on July 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11, 2001:
