Those are pretty much all accurate. Hope your eyes didn’t get worse from that, Julian! Since the others are nearly illegible, I’ll give them out:

___: Timeout is too short
Should have: 100 parameter searching

This comic was just featured at the beginning of my Intro to HCI class at CMU. We’ll get extra credit if you guys feature CMU in a comic. ;)
