What are some good technology-oriented webcomics you all read?

Outside of webcomics, what are some good technology-oriented entertainment in general?

Bastard Operator from Hell
http://bofh.ntk.net/BOFH/index.php

It's old, but there's plenty of it and it's usually pretty funny.

The Codeless Code
http://thecodelesscode.com/contents

It's not bad, but it has an unusually heavy liking for Java. Some of the advice is good, but most of it's fun to read just to criticize the programming culture of the temples its set in.

Kevin & Kell
http://www.kevinandkell.com/

On The Fastrack
http://onthefastrack.com/

Sabrina Online
http://sabrina-online.com/

These three are so numerous that I've yet to read all of them. I don't care for On The Fastrack, but the other two seem to be good from what I've read. They offer old glimpses into computer culture and it's fun to watch the transition to modern life that you see with these, simply because they've been running for so long.

CommitStrip
http://www.commitstrip.com/

This is a more recent webcomic and it focuses on web development. It's funny sometimes and horrible other times, but it's usually just average. It's particularly funny that site of the webcomic focusing on web development is broken. The main page shows you "All strips", but if you go to the November of 2015 section, you can see more. The main page also doesn't show December 2015 strip information.

I can't remember any others I read right now.

Tech-oriented? Suddenly, I'm wondering if there's a comic that imitates the Blame! manga.

There is of course "joyoftech", the supidest, unfunniest tech-related webcomic made by apple fanboys.

Sage because non-productive post.

Generally, xkcd.

Doug Holverson's Sci Fi Guy, an engineer-porn series set in '77 Iowa.
Probably dead, Webcomics Nation is gone, the Kickstarter failed, his basement got flooded, destroying artwork, and I couldn't find a single god damn artist to draw his book, despite him paying actual money. Fuck artists, lazy fucking bastards.
