XKCD – a Math Comic/Blog for those not already in the know Posted on August 9th, 2007 by

While it’s anything but consistent (randomness abounds from comic to comic) you may want to check out XKCD – a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math and language by Randall Munroe, a CNU Physics Graduate who has been through the trenches of sorting algorithms, number theory, and more. He varies from very funny to bizarre to somewhat offensive, sometimes all at the same time.

Here’s a good sampling of some of what I’d consider the best (and most MCS-related) of his archives…
The Perils of GOTO
Fourier Transformations
Regular Expressions to the Rescue
Riemann-Zeta Functions
The power of SUDO
Binary Sudoku
