Best of xkcd for programmers

I’m a big fan of the xkcd web comic. While most of the comics are rather clever and funny, I really enjoy the ones focused on computer science,¬†especially¬†programming. I thought that I’d gather a rough list of my favourites. If you’re having trouble figuring some of them out, try the explain xkcd wiki. So, in no particular order, here they are:

xkcd #612: Estimation
xkcd #612: Estimation
xkcd #327: Exploits of a Mom
xkcd #327: Exploits of a Mom
xkcd #149: Sandwich
xkcd #149: Sandwich
xkcd #303: Compiling
xkcd #303: Compiling
xkcd #239: goto
xkcd #239: goto
xkcd #138: Pointers
xkcd #138: Pointers

All tooltip (hover) text has been preserved, and the images are hosted on and link to its¬†respective page on xkcd.com. There are many more great xkcd comics out there, but I wanted to keep this post to only the best programming-related comics. As I find more awesome programming-related xkcd comics, I will add them to this post. I’d love to hear what xkcd comics are your favourite; feel free to post a comment below.
