In recent years I was skipping most of humor online. It is inconsistent – there are only so many anecdotes or tech stories I find funny. Reading archives to find those is easily most useless and time consuming type of browsing ever.
I’d prefer something:

I have rediscovered tech humor online in form of comic strips.
Comic is about kid that manages an audio blog (too young to type). He shares his daily life and often presents opinions on widely known events like Christmas or economical recession. Comic is far from very technical but kid’s wisdom about blogging is miraculous at times.

Long running comic about life in office. It has numerous characters of various archetypes and clashes them in cooler talk and other office activities. Sometimes it is bit technical, sometimes it is something that can happen in any office.

Comic covers various subjects I can roughly describe as geek-related. :) Sometimes jokes are so technical they are hard to understand, sometimes it is something totally tech-unrelated. I think it requires getting used to. If you do like it – good source of ROFL-level stuff.
