Where is the cartoon with geek secret agents: 001, license to code?

I'm trying to refind a one-panel online comic with geek secret agents. One has "001 -- license to code" or something like that. I kind of remember it as being geek & poke or that style but haven't been able to track it down. Any pointers? Different cartoons along similar lines are welcome.

where are you, my fellow nerds?

I've lived in Kansas City for about three years, and due to my tendency to be an introvert I really haven't found any friends outside of work. I tend to get along best with nerdy intellectual/perpetual student types, but am open to branching out a bit. I've tried Meetup groups with little success. Anybody have ideas I could check out? KC specific or more general wouldn't hurt either. Thanks!

Gifts for a Loveable Nerd

Lastminutegiftsfilter: My boyfriend's birthday is coming up soon, and I have no idea what to get him! We're both geeky but his interests run far more deep than mine do in terms of comic books and gaming and things like that. The problem is: he owns everything already! I plan on consulting with his roommate, who shares many of his interests, but I'd love some input from the hivemind on this. For reference, he's 28, works at a video company and we both live in Los Angeles. [more inside]

Advice for geeks?

What advice would you give to a young geek? What are the best sites with that advice? I have a geeky younger brother, and I want him to avoid many of the pitfalls and social isolation that hit me and have hit others. I've already sent him The Five Geek Social Fallacies, the Nice Guys rant, and at least one Something Awful thread. Similar sites, as well as personal advice, would be appreciated.
