About Dataholics

This blog is the result of a sudden whim and showing faint signs of becoming unexpectedly popular, so I’d better address the copyright issues…

Ownership of some material on this blog belongs to other people, such as this xkcd.com article, and is used only where the owner has given explicit permission. “Some rights [are] reserved” on my own material, but it is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 License.  That means you don’t have to ask my permission to re-use it (non-commercially) or even adapt it, as long as you make it clear where it came from with a link back to this page. If you want to use it commercially, however unlikely that seems, you need to get permission from me: david [dot] a [dot] harley [at] gmail [dot] com.

Yes, the rest of this is the same text as the first article on this blog. Maybe I’ll expand on it later.


I make no claim at all to be a cartoonist (let alone a real artist). However, some people seem to like my cheesy little (mostly IT-related) cartoons, photos, and cheap sarcasm, so I figured I might start putting them together in the same place. That doesn’t mean you won’t find them elsewhere, though. You don’t escape that easily.

If you like I can has cheezburger or Gary Larson, or XKCD, or secmeme, you’ll be totally underwhelmed by this. On the other hand, if it raises the faintest suggestion of a wry smile, you might also like Parodies Regained, which stays firmly in my comfort zone (i.e. is almost entirely textual content).

I tweet everything I publish via @davidharleyblog, if you really can’t get enough. Be warned, a lot of the other stuff is Very Serious.
