Quote from: Aurora Borealis on October 14, 2012, 02:56:40 amThanks! Thought of making it at least a two-parter, with the first part being Multics entering Cray-1's palace for the first time, with Multics thinking that a demon or frost giant lives there because it's very cold, but that's how Cray-1 coped with avoiding overheating.
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on October 14, 2012, 02:56:40 amI'll need some help filling the details in the middle of the first part, but Multics turns out to be more insulted by Cray-1's comments on her fashion than being called a puny human, being her servant, or being threatened with having her ass kicked for raising the thermostat.
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on October 14, 2012, 02:56:40 amI also read your updated version of RSTS' article and the bit about RSTS being a slow to mature OS instantly made me want to make a strip about that! I was thinking a strip where RSTS is visiting the Vintage-tans, showing off her super strength abilities, only for PDP-1 to cheerfully remark that she still remembers when RSTS, despite having been deployed for service still needed help with trivial tasks for years; cue to a flashback of RSTS holding a peanut butter jar and begging for DOS-11 to help her open it, with DOS-11 muttering 'oh for fuck's sake...'.
Quotepanel 1: [Multics is standing outside the door to Cray 1's palace]panel 2: Multics: (thinking) I can't believe I have to be someone's servant. I am an aristocrat!panel 3: [She enters and is still freezing] M: What the hell? Does some sort of frost giant live here or--panel 4: [close-up of thermostat, set to 45]panel 5: [A silhouette of Cray-1 appears in Multics' view; from the silhouette alone, Multics knows she's imposing.] Cray-1: Don't mess with the thermostat, servant. Multics: ... (scared)panel 6: Close-up of Cray-1 Multics: (nervous outburst) Oh crap my overlord is a frost giant!! panel 7: Multics: I j-j-just want to-- not freeze to death!! Cray-1: Fine. Good enough. panel 8: Cray-1: But if I overheat because you turned the thermostat all the way up to 60, I'm going to kick your ass. (just as non-chalantly) By the way, I'm Cray-1.
