QuoteWha....! You had nothing to say of witty Ken Thompson quotes, USO CIOST HQs, Mac'lantis or the many powers of the Goddess?
QuoteAck, nevermind, have a new page.
QuoteThat would be true,... IF OS/2-tan could afford a bunker. Instead, she can barely manage with rented office space,... and a cheap one at that. ^
QuoteEeep....Um,... uh,... well,...........I'm sorry I can't hear you, I'm just a lowly pig, see?Oink oink oink... and stuff.... ^@^*starts foraging around for food*
Quote*deactivates pig mode*Okay, NOW we're cookin' with FIYA!!! ^V^Or flamebroiled VMS-chan, however this turns out.... ^___^'Visually, my favorite part is Panel 2 where UNIX-sama displays a rare fit of PURE unbridled anger. It takes a lot of guts for VMS-sama to talk back with such defiance under such a dangerous predicament. ^^Speakig of defiance, "frickin' forcefield"? My ears are bleeding. ^___^That's a cute moment, but I like that little bluff at the end threatening UNIX-sama with annihilation (*snicker snicker chortle chortle*). Funny how it MAY have been possible in that era -- UNIX-sama may have had the power, but lacked the experience still.On the other hand, the DECs were also plagued with more proprietary inefficiences. Tough call, really.....
QuoteExcellent work! The whole introduction and explanations to the limitations of time travel, space travel and time paradoxes is really well thought-out! And with a kick-*** promotional poster with a title AND tagline to boot!
QuoteBut it's so sad that Lisa's interactions with Apple I-tan will not affect her in the present day
QuoteI read that as "Only a tool"...and I lol'd so hard, it was good.
QuoteI also read that as "Only a tool...", not knowing it was intended to be "Only a fool..." until Nejin stated he misread it ^^; (the top part of the 'f' is very hard to see)
QuoteNothing like plotting the downfall of the Windows Empire from within a musty cubicle. ^^; Hah! Many a revolution has been initiated in a musty cubicle...NOT!
QuoteAw drats....but weren't you just talking a moment ago?
QuoteSo, I had an idea, for a sweet little sci-fi comic...I might try this out before I do the Linux-sama comic, since I'm experimenting with inking my comics... Characters: Lisa-san, OS X Leopard-tan, Apple I-sama
QuotePremise: Lisa-san discovers Leopard-chan's ability to time-travel. She begs Leopard-chan to take her back to see Apple I-sama while she was still alive. Leopard-chan agrees to this, and takes Lisa-san back to (early?) 80s. We learn about Leopard-san's power, and much sap ensues.
QuoteLogistical notes: For the sake of simplicity, I suppose nothing that Leopard-chan or Lisa-san does in a past timeline will effect their own future; only the future of that alternate timeline. Or you could say that the "universe will balance itself out" instead (IE...say you went back in time and saved somebody who was supposed to get hit by a bus, and the next day they got killed by a lightning strike). I'll probably leave this intentionally unclear.
QuoteThe people she gives lifts to, however, are bound by their own lifespan. Therefore, Lisa-san, who was born in 1978, cannot go to a time before her own birth, and likewise for times past her eventual death. Why? Because her passengers don't physically transverse time and space; only their minds do. If there's no living body for their consciousness to inhabit while in that time, they cannot travel. Now, you may wonder why I would opt for this: -Cuts down on the possibility of bizarre paradoxes. Because if 2008 Lisa ran into 1980s Lisa, that would open the door to a confrontation between her past and current self...and while this wouldn't effect their future timeline, it would make for confusion none the less (something like this happened in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). -Makes for better character interaction within the story. If adult Lisa-san ran up to her mother and introduced herself, half the story would consist of Lisa-san trying to convince Apple I-sama of her true identity, not to mention how she got there. If it's just the consciousness of current-day Lisa-san, but in the body of her past self...Apple I-sama would recognize her right away and would make for much more drama.
QuoteIn exchange for thoughtfully a listening to my insane ramblings, and at least trying to make sense of them, have a cover/"promotional poster" I did for this comic. Yup, I even have a title and tagline. I should also note that this was sketched and inked in under an hour, with a bit of post production on Photoshop.
QuoteHmmm,... maybe you have something set up, but I'm not sure if Lisa-chan is currently in the begging mode. It's more likely that Leopard-chan takes her (in secret from anyone else) as a way to cheer her up, or combat a very severe form of depression that has everyone (including ][-chan) worried sick. It would be Leopard-chan's way of helping out using what she knows best. ^^
QuoteHaha! Reminds me of those pages upon pages of theories I posted up about time travel actually being space-time quantum leaps. You can't change the past because there is no more past -- you can only travel to another dimension that's essentially a snapshot of your universe at an earlier date. ^^;
QuoteThe way you put it, though, reminds me of the time travel premise behind the recent Time Travel movie (although admittedly, it doesn't hold a candle,... hell, even a cinder,... to the book).As a side note, it kinda sucks that there's been no decent movie recreation of H G well's Time Machine, or the War of the Worlds. The closest I've seen is the Jeff Wayne version of War of the Worlds (first opera, then video game, now potential movie), but it probably helps that I really REALLY love the mecha for it.http://hollywoodgothique.com/myPictures/waroftheworlds1978.jpg
QuoteActually, I like the notion of spiritual time travel as well, if only because it also makes the experience more "dream like". That might even help with the "begging" part above, as Lisa-san doesn't really need to know that she's traveling back in time, but is simply having a very therapeutic, life-changing dream.
QuoteWhere as the humans expected the machine (that they built from the so-called "VeGan code") would somehow propel the occupant into space at a speed of several light years, or create a wormwhole connect to VeGa, or do some other wacky PHYSICAL form of space travel, in actuality the alien's method of travel is entirely spiritual. Hence there's no need for spaceships or high end technology to be able to explore space and time, unhindered by hunger and thirst, and with the capacity to do so indefinitely.I've always believed that the "dream state" is a kind of primitive precursor to spiritual transcendence, as you're able to project yourself into different worlds and dimensions, and experience past and sometimes even future events that may or may not relate to you -- but have little to no control of your actions, and are still ultimately tied to your physical self.In any event, I don't want to take up pages upon pages on THAT topic, so let me end it there. ^^;
QuoteAt any rate, *PIZZA-SUPREME-SWOONAGE* ^V^It's been a long time since I've seen a Leopard-chan from you, but I see you've not lost your touch. ^__^True, I also "lol"ed at the obvious pun in the title. ^.^
QuoteYay, I got around to inking a few more pages! Yes, I've starting inking them...
QuoteNotes: Oh Dear Lord. Unix-sama is smiling again O__O
QuoteNotes: As promised, (lil') BSD-chan shows up!
QuoteI thought the 2005 version of War of the Worlds was pretty good...
QuoteHey, Contact...that was a great movie....But yeah, this sounds like the concept of astral travel...
Quoteand I'd ask about this Paleo-SETI, but this somehow seems like opening a can of hueg-post worms
QuoteThat's very deep, and kinda my view on it, too...you should hear some of the philosophical discussions I get into with people... @__@
QuoteAwwww dammmmmitttt! That tagline wasn't supposed to be funny >__<
QuoteNOW WE'RE GETTING SOMEWH- wait, why am I thinking this is evolving in Yuri directions? My head must be getting really screwed up with the impending system upgrade and all.
QuoteNotes: In the top panel (2?), VMS-sama is referencing Multics-sama's getting beaten in a fight even when she had this ring spell. We know the fight was with Unix-sama, but VMS-sama doesn't.Oh yes, and the irony in VMS-sama's asking Unix-sama if she's happy now @__@
QuoteNotes: Looks like VMS-sama is angry at the anti-climax (let me hope the viewership isn't). Meanwhile, BSD-chan decides to crash the fight, and we see that, in the span of a few minutes, Unix-sama can cycle through more human emotions than most people can in a week @_______@(Oh and BTW, these are pages that I sketched out weeks ago, I'm just now finishing them)
