  1. Could “peep” possibly mean “peek”, as in a student “peeping” at another student’s answer sheet?

  2. I Think you’ve got. I believe that’s what it means.

  3. I thought it was peep as in Marshmallow Peeps. People at my school would love feeding those to various machines to gum them up or copying them so that we get pictures of mashed birds and rabbits. Still, look at their shirts. Why are they all folded accordion-style like that? Could that have something to do with the comic? Did they … scan their shirts?

  4. I wonder if this has something to do with the time honored tradition of photocopying ones posterior ?

    Perhaps the ‘peep function’ allows you to copy that part of your body without dropping your pants.

  5. I’m still stuck on ‘hi-tec.’ It sounds like an energy drink…

  6. As a teacher who is used to working with obsolete and outdated technology, I beleive this teacher is being sarcastic in that he is suprised the copier is so technologically advanced to notify you when a job is done.

  7. Doing a Google search came up with “Peep! The Network Auralizer” which looks like a computer program that plays nature sounds and birds chirping for various functions. That would get annoying pretty fast if you have to make a lot of copies.

  9. What I want to know is, who’s the poor psychotic soul in the background who appears to be sucking his foot?

  10. Didn’t some early personal computers run a form of Basic in which one could examine and set the bit patterns in particular memory locations (more importantly, peripheral interfaces mapped as memory locations) using the functions PEEK and POKE?

  11. Mark Jackson: Yes, and that’s exactly what I thought of initially, but I can’t see what either PEEK or POKE has to do with “peep”.

  12. “PC load letter? What the F does that mean?”

    Yeah, I don’t get it either.

  13. I think it has to to with the concept of pixel peeping, which is something that users of digital camera’s do. It means to magnify the image on the LCD screen untill you are looking at hte actual pixels rather than the whole image.
