Is this what cloud computing looks like?
I always wanted to draw cloud computing
Wait! What? Is our friendly resolver flying through the sky?
Servers deserve to fly this way
I haven't heard of anyone that actually dislike Jetpacks
DNS jetpacks please!
Resolver had either too much to drink, or he is really happy to go back home
Can we blame him? He's a server
It was so cool visiting everyone!
He having a series of flashbacks now
Queue flashback music now
The root told
me where to
find the .COM
More DNS flashbacks
He made friends along the way
The TLD server
gave me the
That Authoritative Name Server was funny
His real name is Trusty
gave me the IP for
Resolver is happy to make his way back home
Maybe his best road trip moment?
Finally, here we are, I can now
deliver the answer.
Resolver have a special connection to jetpacks
But again, who does not?
The Operative System was not really waiting all this time. That's why we have cores and processors
Maybe it had a job waiting for the answer?
Resolver! It’s about time! I have
been waiting a few milliseconds
now. I thought you were lost!
Resolver was about to brag about his trip, but we are all glad he did not
Hands up if you really like to see your coworker vacation photo shoot?
Hi OS! I’ll tell you about my trip later.
Here is your answer...
Resolver took the time to print the answer in a nice 3x5 index card
Details like these are what make this resolver the best in the whole wide world

The OS is back at what he knows best: cache and calculations
They do other things, but that's for another comic
Great! I’ll save this so I don’t
have to bother you again if he
asks for dnsimple.com.
Browser is never happy to wake up from his sleep
But really, who is?
Did someone mention me?
The OS instruct the browser to ask the IP for dnsimple what he needs
The OS needs to move on to other things of course
Yes! Quick! Ask 184.108.40.206
whatever you need.
You can tell this browser is a modern browser. It's all about entertainment
Funny gifs are so funny
Finally! I was considering displaying one
of those funny gifs to entertain my
audience while you were away.
Oh, well, maybe later.

Sure thing! On the way!

We are back at the first character of this little comic
He signs up for dnsimple! That's a tight marketing funnel here
How can you be not blown away by such innovation?
But it's always happy hour somewhere
Let's keep it at this user timezone please
It’s getting late.
I’ll watch that last
video on youtube.
The browser check his cache and knows where to find youtube.com
Caches are the best thing since...
That, I know where to find!
