Chronology of a hack

Hour 1

This donnering
program's a
piece of...
oh, sorry Bell.

No worries. Just,
um, could you keep
your voice down? I
was trying to listen
to some heavy metal.

Not if I have to keep
working with this thing.

I don't know how they
dare call this software.

In fact I think
I'll write my own...

Hour 2


OK, you want fewer peers,
but you're seeding...

So I'll trim out some
of the other seeds...

I'll just leave it here.

And if there are too many others
left, blot them out at random
until we're down to few enough...

[Panel 3]

tests, and it's backed up...

Tea. Mm. Bit cold.

Hey, what's it doing being
midnight all of a sudden?

And where did that tea come from?

written by monkeys on crack.

But, Jaakko, it was
only a few hours' work!

On top of how many years'
programming experience?
