AMIX looks even better in color!

Quote from: Aurora Borealis on May 11, 2019, 08:29:20 pmIt is. :( Do KRONOS and BUIC have any chance of being resurrected like MTS does?
I agree now that it's a judgment call whether certain OS-tans should be resurrected. I'm fine with leaving that open-ended.
No, unfortunately.  BUIC was pretty thoroughly destroyed after shut-down and I've never heard a peep about KRONOS media still existing.  CDC's equipment was popular, no question, but it doesn't have the devoted user cult that DEC products do to the best of my knowledge.



Quote from: Aurora Borealis on May 11, 2019, 08:29:20 pmAn OS-tan concept I had notes saved for, but hadn't drawn: Cray-2-tan

Name: Cray-2
Debut: 1985
Height: 188 cm (6'2")
Hair color: Dark blue
Eye color: Dark gray
Status: Alive

-Hot-headed, pressured to be an overachiever by Cray-1, but suffered many setbacks and tough competition during development. (development started in 1979, released in 1985)
-An excellent multitasker and fast thinker. (Had fast memory, and could process large datasets quickly)
-Was the fastest and most powerful supercomputer until 1990. (Clock speed of 244 MHz for a computer released in 1985)
-Despite her power, she had a lot of design problems, and her body had to be rebuilt multiple times, and she felt like a failure for not living up to some extremely high expectations. (The Cray-2 had to be rebuilt due to design problems, and was intended to be 10x faster than the Cray-1)
-Overheats easily and has worse overheating problems than Cray-1-tan. Always carries a cooling tank, or is seen in the water.
-Primarily uses water-based magic.
-Worked for the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, has worked in nuclear research and sonar development.
-Doesn't mind practical jokes. (The Cray-2 was nicknamed "Bubbles", and there were running gags by Cray-2 users such as putting "No Fishing" signs on the cooling tanks, or putting plastic fish in them)

Appearance: Has a similar hairstyle to Cray-1-tan, but with dark blue hair and dark gray eyes, and wears a 19th century style swimsuit in black with gray accents, and with blue panels on the skirt, like the panels Cray-1-tan has on her dress. Wears a lot of metal hair pins referencing the circuit cards being joined by Z-pins or pogo pins.

That's a solid design, Aurora.  More Crays can only be a good thing.  How long before people start stacking things on a sleeping Cray-2.

AMIX-tan in color! The color scheme of her outfit is similar to Amiga-tan's cadet uniform, but with muted colors to show her similarities and her differences compared to Amiga-tan. The background is based off of design elements from the AMIX box and manuals. The darker shade on AMIX-tan's outfit is similar to the color of the AMIX installation disks.

Thinking of her backstory more, she has similarities to A/UX-tan while being her opposite too. Both from the Unix bloodline, Sys V specifically. Both of them are stepsisters to another family, and were mentors to their stepsisters they were the most similar to. Both were also exempt from fighting in the Unix Wars, but weren't taken seriously by the other Unixes. AMIX-tan could've been taken seriously if it weren't for her interest in open sorcery before it started to become acceptable among the Unixes. A/UX-tan didn't have a chance at being taken seriously because of her personality, but she wasn't competitor against her own students!

I, too, saw Detective Pikachu, albeit yesterday afternoon.

Right now, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives is playing.

Just saw Detective Pikachu this morning. Was honestly a really fun, enjoyable detective movie; well worth a watch.

Without going too deep into spoilers, I will say in regards to two major twists at the end:
- I was not expecting one of them, although the pieces do fit together when you stop and think about it
- I was expecting the other, given a few details I noticed

Quote from: stewartsage on May 09, 2019, 05:32:31 pmOh man, I'm glad I finished some (more) siblings for OS/8.  Poly-Question would be all-aboard for dunking on her, thanks to her creator's influence no doubt.  In every publication where he discussed P?S/8 he made sure to dump on OS/8.  That said, it'd be far more loving since, you know, sisters. 

The OS/8 comic I made was before you posted OS-tan descriptions for her sisters, but once they have designs drawn, I can make a comic based off this idea.

Part of why I'm okay (more or less) with MTS-tan coming back is there wasn't really any story connection to her death.  One day, she was just gone.  If there's an OS-tan afterlife she may be pretty hesitant to return from it, since presumably KRONOS and BUIC are there.
