Thanks to my friends for proofing an earlier version of this comic and pointing out the various connectors that I'd used that don't carry power. (HDMI, DVI, and VGA, for those playing at home.) They helped me select different connectors so that nobody reading this comic could complain that something isn't technically a power(-carrying) connector.

Any complaints I will ignore and forward directly to them.

We considered including Power over Ethernet, but that just precipitated a big discussion about how evil that was, complete with Palpatine memes.

Interestingly, there's also Ethernet over power lines, which prompted one of my friends to say:

I want to see someone implement the unholy ouroboros abomination of power over Ethernet over power.
