xkcd: Compiling

This is a famous classic cartoon that computer programmers can relate to.

Back in the 1980s, I did not have any good programming tools for my Timex Sinclair 2068 computer, so I wrote an "assembler" which was unfortunately really slow.  It took 6 hours to "compile" a videogame that I wrote.  (Normal compile times might be a few minutes.)
