      Welcome!   03/05/2016

      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

  2. Sci-Fi Physics Help Needed - Open Discussion

    … as an aside, "free energy" is an actual jargon term for something completely different.
  3. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    The issue being how they try and consolidate the difference in how Windows and Linux do file permissions etc. They basically mount the home directory using a different NTFS wrapper than the drives, which includes extra metadata on the files (and borks when that isn't present). More info here (coincidentally, that's the same Sven Groot responsible for the Ookii.org EGS resources).

  5. Fifteen Years of EGS

    @Scotty Found this: "This wound up getting posted on a Thursday, which I find somewhat frustrating. The day before it was Wednesday, January 21st, AKA the day it should have been posted, AKA Squirrel Appreciation Day, and AKA the 13th anniversary of El Goonish Shive. Woo." -- Dan Shive, 2015. -- http://www.egscomics.com/?id=2014 Edit: looks like Squirrel Appreciation Day predates EGS: http://mentalfloss.com/article/54634/happy-squirrel-appreciation-day
  6. I think I have mobile-site support (using e.g. Tampermonkey for Android) sorted out. Whether this is the case or no, I have sorted out the formatting of the blog pages. Current version.

  8. EGS Strip Slaying

  9. EGS TvTropes pages

    Issues over personhood of Uryuoms would only come into question in practice if their being Homo sapiens is brought into doubt. Which would require seeing through Ed Verres' T-shirts, which are of course impenetrable. That being said, by one of multiple biological definitions of species (a group of organisms living together which can breed to produce fertile offspring, the so-called "Biological Species Concept") a possible argument could be put forth that Uryuoms do actually constitute Homo sapiens, at least for certain purposes. I suspect the DGB wouldn't find it too difficult to weasel in something somewhere to ensure that Homo sapiens is legally defined based on that concept, which would consequently technically include Uryuoms on fertile-hybrid grounds (although this would not be obvious from reading the law with no knowledge of Uryuoms).

    Any particular reason why CMBR over a PRNG? Just curious, given that I presume this has no cryptographic significance?
  11. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14680807/how-to-fix-webkit-fake-url-mean seems to be happening there...
  12. Er... just to ensure we're seeing the same thing, this is what it looks like to me, using the Greasemonkey fixes: [images moved to first post]
  13. The forum's graphical emoticons: (that's supposed to show up as an image). Textual emoticon: :) (works unsurprisingly). (I tried an emoji as well, but got "The value entered includes a character that is not allowed such as an Emoji." on submitting.) The problem is that the forum's graphical emoticons went missing. Like the avatars and gallery. The same could be said of the banner image, but as it is one image which appears on every page it was fairly straightforward to find an archived copy of it and host it on Catbox. Further complication is that even if I would put enough time and effort into getting them all to show up from an external host using CSS (which still wouldn't fix the selector), they would still show up as BBCode alt-text to everyone else. Like: . While I suspect that it would be possible to monkey-patch the editor with JavaScript, I'm not volunteering. Nonetheless, here's an externally hosted Demonic Duck to be copy/pasted:
  14. Counting down.

    It is 23:42 GMT. 18 minutes to go.
  15. I've noticed that some changes seem to have been made to how sidebars show up on profile pages. While this is positive in general, it does not play well with my existing fixes, causing all the text to completely camouflage. I have therefore redone my profile page fixing, as well as taking the opportunity to sort out the settings page while I was at it. Current version.

    I didn't manage to hit post immediately, so there was a few seconds of error margin anyway.

    Case closed, and then torn open by dog. Edit: replying to previous page. Didn't notice this one.
  19. https://egspinups.tumblr.com/post/154940857950/if-its-fanfiction-but-written-by-you-is-it sebbot835 asked: If it's fanfiction but written by you, is it Danfiction? egspinups: Yes.
  20. Story Friday December 23, 2016

    The Diamond was created to heal a werewolf IIRC, thus lycanthropy predates the Diamond.
  21. Do paracanonical fantasies by the author count as fanfiction?

  23. Before you do that, I've noticed that making the size dropdown numbers white conceals them when they're moused over, so I've essentially inverted that issue. I'll try and work on that.
  24. Fixed. As an aside, who uses iframes for pull-down lists? Who????
