Sounds more like the Guns from Black Summer by Ellis.  Which is a little more frightening.



Very good comic, BTW...
Thanks!  Will be added to my list.

If the domain has not been re-pointed, then though he doesn't have control of the domain, he does still have control of what the domain is pointed to.  He didn't sell them his servers, he sold a domain name.

Huh? huh

I think he means if the new owner hasn't updated the DNS records then having access to the old(/current) hosting account -(or just Admin level access to the relevant CMS)- would give one free reign to play.

Exactly.

Ignore me. I'm DeNSer than usual today. smiley
Indeed.
103  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: convert wordpress site to an app, seamless connection. on: January 08, 2015, 12:47:16 PM
I wanted to try this experiment...take an existing wordpress site and package it as an app.  And from there, the app and site are synced.  There is this program:
http://reactor.apppresser.com/

Seems to do it for a couple hundred bucks.  Any other recommendations?

It's a complicated sounding concept. How does the app on your phone know to pull updates and properly integrate the data?

I think html5 has helped stuff like this be easier.  It seems the app somehow packages all the structure and dependencies of the wordpress site into whatever is needed to make a standalone app.  It makes sense to me.  A lot of apps I've seen function almost exactly like a mobile version of websites, that's what got me thinking about it.

I need more female characters, so they get priority.

I shaved off the beard so you could basically sketch me as a guy or a girl. It's all fiction anyway.  Wink

Either way, I'm probably wearing short running shorts and have hairy legs. (Ok, that's true).

Somewhere between sardonic and deadpan. Is that a shade of yellow?
well that offers some interesting options.  Perhaps you can be a female, but a descendant of Annie Jones.

 Grin oh just remembered my favorite pianist vs. guitarist argument.

Regarding the chords for a song, a piano player wants to know the exact chord...don't just say F or F7...iit might by F9 or Fb9 or F7 or F13, they are not the same!!!  Then your realize the guitar player just cares about the F bit, and the rest he just makes up whatever he feels is "right".  So the pianist is playing the exact chord, the guitarist is playing something similar, but it sounds off.

the worst example of this was the song 'I'm Beginning to see the light".  because it's seemingly a simple 1-6-2-5 song.  But it's unorthodox in that it starts on the 6 instead of the 1.  man, I got into this whole thing with a guitar player for like a week on that.  because the fake books print it incorrectly, and the songs we listen to play it correctly.  So it just sounds off, but the difference is very subtle.  Am7 and C6 are the same exact chords.  Anyway, I spent an evening listening to the classic recordings to confirm and recreated a song chart for it, sent it to the guitarist, who I think was a bit offended at how big a deal I made of it.

damn i love music.
ok back on topic.

IMO Guitar is paradoxically easier and more difficult to play than a piano or keyboard. Which is probably why some people gravitate to one or the other depending upon how their brain works.
This seems very true.  I've tried guitar a little, played piano a lot.  From what I've seen, the guitar brain seems to lean towards the artistic/abstract like geometry, while the piano brain seems to be much more algebraic.  At least to me.

On the piano, everything is linear.  The higher note is always more to the right, the spaces between them are equal everywhere.  Unfortunately, that means I have to learn 12 different "things" to master all the keys.

On guitar, it's almost the opposite.  Notes are layered on top of each other and you have several options as far as paths to take for the melody.  On piano, one melody = one option...guitar is one melody = several options.  Same goes for chords.

If you don't know anything about music, i feel piano is easier to get into.  because it's all linear, so that's easy.  And if you press a key, you hear the sounds, no practice needed.  On guitar, just to get a decent sound might take a while, as you have to develop calluses, learn how to get a clean pick.  And (IMO) it's more difficult to get into the theory because you're immediately dealing with complex layers and patterns vs. straight linear thinking.  Also, a lot of guitar players tend to get stuck in the chord strumming phase and never are able to pick a melody because of this.  I think the good guitar players think in patterns and shapes because one or two patterns will cover all keys, unlike a piano.  So piano players think more linearly or use their memorization skills to really get good.  Although a girl recently told me she thinks in shapes, which i thought was interesting.  I'm all numbers when I play.

Thanks!  It looks simple, but this is actually the 3rd or 4th version of the "style" I'm going for.  I've been getting very positive reactions so far.  thumbs up

I need more female characters, so they get priority.

* app103 waves at superboyac

Hi there!

I have very large blue eyes, I'm chunky, have long hair, glasses, I wear bunny ears while I am working, and I am so pale that my skin glows in the dark. I don't wear dresses, high heels, or makeup, but it's not because I am a tomboy. I just like being comfortable.

Everything else you can base on your impression of me or just make it up. Have fun!  smiley
You're first!
lol at the bunny ears!
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Want to be in my story? See inside. on: January 01, 2015, 04:41:50 PM
I'm game.

But I detest trying to describe/define myself, so you'll have to wing it. cheesy
stoic...any chance you are a female (sorry! i don't know!).  I need more female characters, so they get priority.
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Movies or films you've seen lately on: January 01, 2015, 03:06:46 PM
The movie was...um...mostly less so. Sinclair Lewis's It Can't Happen Here handled that theme far better, and frankly, far more believably - no scifi or fancy tech needed to pull it off. Lewis's book should be required reading for every schoolchild in America. (I'm not holding my breath for that however.) And I'd love for someone to make it into a major motion picture. (Not holding my breath for that one either.)
V the 1983 miniseries doesn't count?

Character sheets!

HP: Hit points (reach 0 and you die)
MP: Mana points (or magic points)
BP: Bit points (used like MP, except for writing software or hacking Sony tongue )

Grin
lol...definitely can do something fun with you.  i would like you to be similar to "The Wolf" character from pulp fiction.  Only you don't clean up murders, you clean up the tracks of the pirate bay as they go through their takedown/move/startup cycles.

We've spoken more than few times personally, both online and on the phone. So we're hardly strangers..

Go for it.  smiley

yea...i already have something in mind for you.  was just giving an opportunity to override it!  lol.  so your look basically centers around something like "the dude" but with cleaner, more modern clothing, playing a cigar box bass at the back of the stage of some kind of 4 piece band...and you're stationed right next to the server/audio equipment.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Want to be in my story? See inside. on: December 30, 2014, 06:18:48 PM
So I'm practicing writing stories.  One of the things I'm doing is drawing my characters out and seeing if that helps me with ideas.  I've done about 5 characters so far.  I want more practice.  Since I've become very familiar with several users here, I'd like to draw some of you guys.

If you want to be included, all I need from you are a few characteristics, describe them however you please.  And they don't have to be true, they can be something exaggerated or fantastic. 

I'll give an example with my own character.  Tall, dark, failing in attempts to be positive so he's an unintentional cynic.

Missed a few lately: 40hz's 11,111th post...

It'll be easier with me going forward. Grin I plan on drastically cutting back my online presence starting next year. It's one of my top resolutions. And I'm usually pretty good at keeping them. Thmbsup

I don't know if it will help but what order are the adapters listed in under Network Connections->Advanced->Advanced Settings->Adapters and Bindings
 (see attachment in previous post)
And if it isn't, what happens if you move the Local Area Connection to the top?
Well I'll be!  That seems to have done the trick!  And you have shown me a corner of windows I never even knew about!

Quote from: superboyac
I was still in college when I saw (and got excited) for the first LOTR trailer.  Damn.  It actually bookends my entire career so far.

It seemed to take forever to get a decent version.  When I finally watched the trilogy it was like some burden had been removed(like maybe throwing a ring into Mount Doom?)  Now I feel like I can ignore LOTR stuff for the duration.  smiley

The analogous situation was the Atlas Shrugged movie part I.  Except in this case I have no desire to see the remaining installments.  Talk about a lackluster rendition of the story!  It was like someone traversed a checklist of everything that had to be there, with no feeling about any one item in particular.  What a waste.  I watched the entire flick waiting for something to happen.  Nothing did.  Sad

Grin that's almost word for word what i said as i was walking out of the theater!

^Very nice dancer there. Too bad it's so hard to tell.

40hz rant time! tellme tellme tellme

...

It's true that dance can be very dramatic. But that doesn't make it a drama - which most people who make movies and videos simply can't seem to grasp.

***end rant***

I think they trained at the MTV school of film production.  More important than content is shifting the shot every couple of seconds to force the observer to refocus.  Supposedly this keeps people watching even though nothing good is shown.  The trick is old now.  I wish they'd think up a new gimmick.  smiley

Edit:  Fortunately it's not 2015 yet as I've pointed this out at least a dozen times on DC.  New Years res. is to let it and similar rest.  smiley


the ultimate abuser: epic battle scenes and transformers.  just once, I wish they would zoom waaaay out and let us watch an enormous battle unfold for a SOLID 30 seconds.  And no more one guy mowing down hundreds of enemies.  And in the transformer's case, let's have fewer pipes and metal parts for the robots so we can actually see facial features and other things that help us figure out what is going on, what body parts are involved, etc.  I don't want to see a bunch of pipes crammed together and spend a few seconds "is that the eye? is that the arm?  am i looking at a home depot shopping cart?"

also...if gandalf can blast hundreds of orcs away with his ball of light from his staff, why doesn't he just do it in the beginning of every major battle...or just repeatedly?
