CLICK AND DRAG!, I had to find the drag image first. Tip for #XKCD change the cursor in a pointer on the LARGE image!
So instead of sleeping I decided to write a script to pull down and stitch together the incredible #XKCD images from http://xkcd.com/1110

Got to hand it to +Randall Munroe , this was an amazing feat.

The tiles are 2048x2048 pixels, and the map is 80 tiles wide, and 32 tiles tall.  The scale of this thing is crazy. It's 163,840 x 65536 pixels, which makes it a 10 GIGA-Pixel image!

The coolest part I thought was that most of the tiles could be empty, and they just 404 error in the background since they don't exist, but the script doesn't care. It just paints it black below the horizon, or white above.


Also of note, I stiched them together with HTML5 canvas then got the image from Canvas.toDataURL().
Firefox and Chrome both barfed on 225 (non-empty) huge tiles, so i had to scale them down first with mogrify to 64x64 to even paint the thing on a 5120x2048 canvas.

Here's the still way scaled down (1/32) 5120x2048 version:  http://goo.gl/TDol9
