I'd have to disagree with you here. While it is not *specifically*
tech oriented, it has frequently referenced Linux, UNIX and other
"tech" subjects in strips featuring Jason Fox. Even, more than once,
to the point where only a tech could possibly understand the joke. For
example (my two very favorite Fox Trot strips):


  Jason Fox's iFruity: "I have Unix underpinnings! I have Unix
  Jason:               "Big deal." (pulls down pants)
  iFruity:             "Unix underpants?!?"
  Jason (reading the front of his briefs):
                       "'chmod 0700', baby!"


  The second strip loses too much in the translation, but was a large
  panel filled with Java code, followed by a panel in which his
  frustrated and very groggy father points out that this wasn't what
  he meant when he asked for some "java".
