Quote from: Halian on May 05, 2019, 06:33:28 PMIf emulatability = resurrection, as hypothesized elsewhere, then Amix-tan lives again, thanks to being able to install her in (properly configured) WinUAE.
Quote from: Bella on May 05, 2019, 08:33:41 PMI remember hearing that story now. Must've been why her name is familiar...Really digging the direction you've taken with her design! I'd love to see a picture of her and Amiga-tan in her cadet uniform. Might draw that...
Quote from: stewartsage on May 07, 2019, 04:04:47 PMA tangent in that direction: The Commodores reenact The Village People's In The Navy.
Quote from: stewartsage on May 09, 2019, 04:29:48 PMIf there's an OS-tan afterlife she may be pretty hesitant to return from it though, since presumably KRONOS and BUIC are there.
QuoteWhen you put it that way, it's actually kinda sad.
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on May 11, 2019, 07:29:20 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.
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on May 11, 2019, 07:29:20 PMAn OS-tan concept I had notes saved for, but hadn't drawn: Cray-2-tanName: Cray-2Debut: 1985Height: 188 cm (6'2")Hair color: Dark blueEye color: Dark grayStatus: 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.
Quote from: undefinedInterestingly, the Cray-3 was modeled on Apple's computers, and Apple in its turn bought a Cray supercomputer to assist with the design of its PCs.
Quote from: undefinedThe Cray-2 capacities were used in such blockbusters as "Star Wars", "Jurassic Park", "Terminator 2: Judgment Day", etc.
