I don't know but I suspect it is. It was probably a beta feature that got cut before release of whatever tool it is (he specifically doesn't mention it in the comic). Those people are most likely chatting on some old desktop computer that was converted into a test server that's sitting under someone's desk in Redmond.

He makes it seem like someone is out there watching everything they're doing but I assume that's not the case. More than likely no one even remembers the damn thing is still running.

it's a really strange thought, isn't it? Kind of lonely.

Edit: I should add that I'm speaking from experience. There's a lot of weird shit like that here at Cisco too. Technically, that kind of stuff's not supposed to happen, but earlier releases of Windows were chock full of code that was supposed to be removed or, like, easter eggs that programmers hid in there that didn't get caught before release.

I posted a comment on reddit discussing this comic and about my experience with INTL (not naming names), and like ten people responded with similar stories (who probably aren't you).

It's odd to look back at who I was a decade ago, first coming here. This place has shaped my personality in some ways.

Indeed, people occasionally enjoy commenting on their circumstances, and expressing thoughts using a wondrous thing called language!

Yeah I know a lot of people who say things just to hear themselves speak. It typically isn't considered a virtue.
