Apparently you're not an engineer. Engineers (including myself sometimes) can be strictly and elaborately logical about hypothetical possibilities to the extent that normal people misconstrue what they (i.e. the engineers) are thinking. Dilbert's just trying to clarify the question and all its ramifications beyond the bounds of common sense. Just like a typical software engineer does.
The new layout is really terrible. The best thing about Daily Dilbert was the agility to open it right in the beginning of the day, among a lot of new e-mails, read it, laugh a bunch and be back in action in less than a minute. Now it takes 3/4 of that time just to load the webpage. Scott, I'm a big fan and hate to say that, but this is not going to work as well as the simple, plain old html version.
