Quote from: Halian on May 05, 2019, 07:33:28 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, 09:33:41 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, 05:04:47 pmA tangent in that direction: The Commodores reenact The Village People's In The Navy.
Quote from: stewartsage on May 09, 2019, 05:29:48 pmIf there's an OS-tan afterlife she may be pretty hesitant to return from it though, since presumably KRONOS and BUIC are there.
Quote from: Bella on May 10, 2019, 12:17:00 amWhen you put it that way, it's actually kinda sad.
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.
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-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.
