      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!

  1. Edit: I've just realised how confusing this initial post must have been to people just coming in here from the sticky. So, here we go: These are some scripts provided in the hope of improving (more precisely, in the spirit of "fixing") your forum experience. I have no affiliation with the forum's root admins; I am not selling any of this: I do not guarantee safety, fitness or anything else. To do any of this you need one of the addons Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey, or a compatible equivalent, installed. Greasemonkey currently works on Seamonkey and on Firefox ESR. Tampermonkey currently works on Firefox Quantum, Chromium and Chrome. Firstly, I strongly recommend that you install my interface fixes, which is likely to fix any grievances or glitches you have with the default stylesheet and theming. Secondly, if you wish to have a larger range of emotes available, I have written another script to do that. When this was written, the forum emotes were broken: this is no longer the case but I've kept the script around for anyone who likes the greater choice of emotes or prefers the twemoji images. Note that this does not come with a selector, all input is by colon codes. Current version.

    'Tis a mighty burden to create the successor to one of the longest-running threads on the deceased forum, but I might be up to the commencement.
  3. This Day In History

    Some accents lack distinctions between words which others distinguish (cot-caught is one of the more notorious examples). I believe Recieved Pronunciation has most of the word distinctions though (with some odd exceptions such as wine-whine).
  4. This Day In History

    IPA is quite overprecise for general English use. The Deseret alphabet is more designed for English specifically, but still doesn't quite equate across all accents (for instance, the "long a" (fAther), "short ah" (bOx) and "long ah" (cAUght) are the same sound in some accents and two or three different sounds in others) and has a few additional flaws, as well as a few letter shapes that sorta got displaced in a chain at some point (en→short a→short e→"short o"→er) between earlier and later charts.  It also can't be posted on this forum due to non-BMP characters not being allowed by the software (the same reason why most Unicode emoji can't be posted).  Not that anyone (likely) would be able to read it, since it more or less fell into obscurity. Although one of the more frustrating things about standard English orthography, though, is that it's somewhere between difficult and impossible to unambiguously specify the pronunciation of (say) a given foreign name using it.  Deseret is at least much less ambiguous.  IPA moreso of course.

    Yeah. Although Aramaic was at that point spoken in Judea / Galilee.  The Greek texts of the New Testament are regarded as the original, which makes some sense (Greek and Latin were widely used in the Roman Empire, with Greek being stronger in the eastern parts of the Empire).  A fair amount of what Jesus said, he probably said in Aramaic though.

    Well, people have been occasionally mentioning elsewhere that they had tried to make a forum account but it hadn't let them, for over a year now. So I've just tried it in a Firefox Container tab, purely for the purpose of seeing whether I ran into that problem also: https://files.catbox.moe/t15j0y.png Notice the "Security Check" header with nothing under it. https://files.catbox.moe/g3vq6o.png Trying to submit gives me a "You did not pass the security check. Please try again." despite there being no security check to pass.

    Strip Slays: remixed comic strips, often humourous. Mine: http://imgur.com/a/xmqPE, plus one derived from a pinup: http://imgur.com/yR3R3Hx (debatable extent of SFW). Whle I have a number of other ones saved, I have not kept around the attributions ...
  8. Transferring the current data (including the stuff suggested here and possibly some more suggested over on the Discord) from Dia into GraphViz allowed me to make use of its layout engines, rather than trying to lay it out myself. So, here's circo:

  14. This Day In History

    The Magna Carta was annulled on the basis that John signed it under duress, but his successor re-issued it voluntarily to secure support iirc. There were several monarchs who clashed with the pope, John amongst them, Henry VIII is noteworthy here insofar as it was suddenly politically tenable to break from Rome. Issue being that Pluto turned out to be in a belt of objects, and if Ceres was classified as an asteroid rather than a planet (as which it otherwise qualifies) purely due to being in the asteroid belt, then same would apply to Pluto. So there were at the time either eight known planets (MVEMJSUN) or eleven (MVEMCJSUNPE), but not in any case ten.
  15. Would post in Word of Dan but I'm cautiously putting it here seeing as it concerns the fanservice topic.
  16. EGS Strip Slaying

    Inflammable means able to be inflamed (in the sense of set on fire), which is in turn taken more or less straight from Latin. Problem is that the Latin prefix in has two different meanings, so we're talking about the other one here.
  17. This Day In History

    It's… slightly more complicated than that, but yes.
  18. We Begin Anew!

    @Thom Revor @Robin I've been contacted by someone who is attempting to sign up for the forums but is unable to, giving this screencap, suggestive of a CAPCHA API which is no longer operational: Could this be looked into?

    Milometer is the term I've usually heard. ‘Course, that's in England, not the continent.
  20. Word of Dan

    Don't think so. The only one of the Greasemonkey scripts I'm running at the moment is the stylesheet patch, which doesn't affect the HTML tree, only the CSS / how it's rendered. Yet it happened for me too. Evidently something's trying to avoid making you reload the entire page upon submit by dynamically inserting your post into the page after you hit Submit, and it isn't working properly.

    Following the forum and linking from OPs is one way of following the comic, yes.
