      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. Remember the immortal words of Marcus Cole. "I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." You didn't do anything. Crap happens. It sucks. If we can help make it suck any less with distractions, audience for venting, and sympathy, we're here. *virtual hugs* ('cos virtual ones don't make anything hurt more, unlike real ones might)
  2. In a way, but it was two friends having a frank discussion about a very personal situation. Being less than honest could lead to a lot more problems. She didn't say it in a condemning or belittling way, only that it was a factor she was considering.
  3. np

    I recall watching a video where they had the guy at the service counter duck down out of sight behind it, and then another guy stand back up again in his place. It was fun seeing how many people didn't seem to notice.
  4. Someone once made a comment about not even knowing if Susan has a sex drive. It occurred to me while re-reading that the vampire being able to mezmerize her in France is a pretty good sign she's got one, and that it includes men, given that Nanase was probably immune because she's not attracted to men. Sure we've seen further evidence since then, but that might have been much earlier confirmation.
  5. loving language

    I am now picturing a new subspecies of alot, perhaps one with an extra pair of horns to go with its pair of 'L's? :-) (Thanks for reminding me of a fun and perspective-giving cartoon!)
  6. If I binge-watched Highlander could I gain the ability to heal any injury? Or to pull swords out of thin air? Would binge-watching The Tomorrow People give me teleportation, telepathy, and telekinesis?
  7. Heh. My roommate in college one year was an anime fan, and instead of putting pictures of ourselves on our dorm room door, her side had a picture of Alita, and mine had the female protagonist from Crying Freeman. Which matched what we looked like surprisingly well. :-)
  8. story

    You do have the option of just looking at the maps on a GPSr, you know. You don't have to go to the Get Directions item and tell it where you're going, if you have more faith in your own navigating skills than the computer's. ;-)
  9. story

    I mostly use my Colorado GPSr for geocaching. A GPSr can hold detailed maps of every town in several states. You just can't get that sort of detail in a map book. I have a road atlas, which covers every state but doesn't get down to street level in more than a small section of the biggest few cities. I also have a folding map of a couple of cities, which again include the center of the city but not any real detail in the suburbs. With a GPSr, I can navigate through any part of Greater Chicagoland, from outer suburbs to major trails in the Forest Preserve, and I can find my way around a closed section of interstate while traveling downstate to my home town.
  10. I should have specified, you can't change major historical events. No killing Hitler or stopping Revolutions. No telling your younger self to buy the winning Powerball ticket (unless you've already won and recall getting the numbers from a mysterious stranger). This is just places to see, things to experience. ;-P
  11. weather

    Not as warm, but no threat of rain, either. Good walking weather, but I only had half an hour at lunch and I'd forgotten my cell, so I just walked around the perimeter of the parking lot and then a few houses down and back a few times to get some exercise. (I also used my hand weights that I keep next to my desk, which I don't do as often as I should.) Supposed to be similar the next few days, gradually warming, then get rainy again next week.
  12. Yup, the local Fry's has plenty of Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Propeller, and various other processors and components. If he had the money, he could probably get a supercomputer's worth of computing power. Or Tedd could just order online if he knows far enough ahead what he'll need.
  13. To borrow a phrase from Douglas Adams, it's an increasingly inaccurately named trilogy. Rogue One is definitely a worthy addition to the series, and I'm inclined to let The Force Awakens count as long as they don't screw things up with the other two planned movies, To be honest, I haven't really seen the prequels enough to have a strong opinion on them. I'd kinda like to try the Machete Order and see if that really does salvage them, I just haven't had the time.
  14. Ever since one of the threads got moved from Comics Discussion to EGS General Discussion, leaving a subject heading with an arrow to its left, the main forum page constantly has Comics Discussion in bold print that's supposed to make it easy to see where there are new posts
