This is just too damn good not to share.  Enjoy!  ;D ;D

Still in the B-list because I'm not 100% positive what the hell is going on in this one, but an interesting read nonetheless.  Apparently a trio of mad professors graduate college together and make a bio-chem lab with a big secret.  One of them goes madder than the others, and hilarity ensues when a hapless repairman enters the fray.

Not Drunk Enough
A quick repair at a huge corporate lab during a late night shift should not have sent Logan into a hellish landscape fraught with monsters, but it looks like Lady Luck decided to give him the middle finger. Logan would like to give one back.

This one has moved from the B-list to my main rotation, it's that good.  This is Ben Fleuter's spiritual successor to his earlier comic Parallel Dementia and recycles some of the main characters but with a more fully fleshed-out plot, and better artwork.

The Sword Interval
The Sword Interval is about a world on the verge of a supernatural apocalypse. Most of humanity goes about their daily lives trying to ignore the constant threat of magic and monsters, but a few face these dangers head-on. Fall is one such person. She has left behind the sheltered safety of the paranormal witness protection program in order to hunt down the monster that killed her family.

A bit of an update...

Well, it looks like BlackGrass went on hiatus, it hasn't been updated for about a month now.  I hope the author is doing ok...

Stand Still, Stay Silent just threw everyone for an emotional loop in the latest update, but it's a masterful bit of storytelling.  No fair skipping to the end! Start at the beginning or at least after the prolog.

I also have a few more to share in the next few days or so, but it's bedtime so until then, check out the fine webcomic collectives at:

btw was it mentioned anywhere how much $/space they are paying?  I can crank up the autorepeat rate and hold down the space bar with the best of 'em!   :)

It wasn't so much a $/space thing, I mean, maybe if they asked how many spaces they used to indent code, you might find some correlation, but I don't even...

I think the bigger question here is WHY those who use spaces make more money.  The author of the article claims there was no single factor other than spaces vs. tabs that would come up with a consistent disparity.  The only thing I could think of right off was maybe because Python devs may be in higher demand (therefore paid more), and it skewed the results towards Python rather than raw spaces vs. tabs.  But again, according to the article, the author tried finding some cross-reference that would reveal some sort of confounding factor, but found none, including choice of programming language.  :huh:

As some of the comments state, it may even be due to bad data passed via a flawed survey, who knows?

For your entertainment:  ;D


The title says it all.  I'm not any good at analyzing data, but it's all there for those wishing to take a crack at it:

Do you use tabs or spaces for code indentation?

This is a bit of a “holy war” among software developers; one that’s been the subject of many debates and in-jokes. I use spaces, but I never thought it was particularly important. But today we’re releasing the raw data behind the Stack Overflow 2017 Developer Survey, and some analysis suggests this choice matters more than I expected.

Not a huge fan of seals.   They are VERY strong and can hurt you quite easily and if one bites you, it can cause a specifically nasty infection peculiar to seal bites.  Look up "Seal Finger"  :'( .  That said, the seal in question does seem friendly and cute, I just wouldn't get that close if I were him.

OK, the pre-made pieces are cool, and I like that it has a handbook, but this very same idea has been freely available for years:
What is a piecepack?

Flexible. Portable. Affordable. Public domain. The piecepack is a set of boardgame parts that can be used to design and play a wide variety of games. Anyone may design and publish a piecepack rule set. Any manufacturer or individual may produce piecepacks.
Basically, it's a set of printable templates, and a website chock-full of user-submitted games to play with them.  I suppose 3D-printed piecepacks would be the next step.

But I admit, a nice tidy box o'goodies with a helpful manual sounds pretty cool.  Nice find, Wraith808!  :Thmbsup:

Developer's Corner / 184 steps to Build Your Own Text Editor in C
« on: April 15, 2017, 12:25 AM »
Build Your Own Text Editor
Welcome! This is an instruction booklet that shows you how to build a text editor in C.

The text editor is antirez’s kilo, with some changes. It’s about 1000 lines of C in a single file with no dependencies, and it implements all the basic features you expect in a minimal editor, as well as syntax highlighting and a search feature.

This booklet walks you through building the editor in 184 steps. Each step, you’ll add, change, or remove a few lines of code. Most steps, you’ll be able to observe the changes you made by compiling and running the program immediately afterwards.

I explain each step along the way, sometimes in a lot of detail. Feel free to skim or skip the prose, as the main point of this is that you are going to build a text editor from scratch! Anything you learn along the way is bonus, and there’s plenty to learn just from typing in the changes to the code and observing the results.

Prelude to Axanar:

Wow!! Very cool. Too bad Paramount decided to get their feathers in a huff about it. In a perfect world, Paramount would hire them to make the film, as the crew who put this together obviously show the talent required.

This one was a head-scratcher from the beginning, and left me going "Wut?" at the end.
Subtitles for us monophones.

Living a solitary farm-life, a young girl's reality begins to break apart in this mind-bending Sci-Fi short...

Did you ever get a reply to this?  My recommendation would be to hit up the Lazarus forum.  A Mac user there contributed an iOS build of my Pastequick utility.

OK, so that was my "A-list" of comics I keep up on pretty regular.  There are a few that are on the "B-list" for varied reasons; whether not updated recently or I only check on them every so often due to updates being infrequent, or they just haven't been around that long and the story isn't quite fleshed out.  Let's get this B-list started with...

Blackgrass is written and drawn by kino and edited by Ryan.

This is a story about a clairvoyant/spiritual medium named Rev. Abel Ruby, a sweet, well-meaning preacher who is slowly losing his faith and gets contracted into working for a lost soul that needs his help to find redemption! He begins to realise that “God” isn’t quite what he’s led to believe, and his perception of faith gets turned on its head! It is a long-form, fully coloured comic that will update Mondays and Fridays of every week!

Black & Blue
Like Noir?  Like Sci-fi?  Like a weird mash-up of the two set in a what-if-the-set-for-Blade-Runner-wasn't-so-futuristic-and-more-like-80s-Chicago kind of environment?  Like limited color palettes?  Here ya go...

Some lady is trapped in a room somewhere forced to manufacture some kind of contraband, so she gets sick of it (obv) and tries to get out in the most insane way possible.  Hilarity ensues.  With robots.  And crime syndicates.  With robots.

So, for the last few years, Black and Blue has been a side project of mine, to create a world in my own visual style. Being a long time fan of classic film noir movies, I try to incorporate elements of design and story telling from that genre of film, and to create something unique and interesting which reflects the things which have inspired and drive me to do what I do.
My first foray into comic books was a one off first issue of Black and Blue, which has since changed and evolved to an online bi-weekly format. I find that it’s a good way of engaging and developing interest in Black and Blue, while still producing and honing my art.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy Black and Blue.

Mare Internvm
Mars colonist/AI scientist Michael is about to be fired and shipped back to earth, but possible mental health issues (among others) make this an uncomfortable string of events.  So, then this thing happens...

Author Der-shing Helmer is quite adept at setting atmosphere and environment with her artwork and all the characters have amazing depth that can only be handled by a skilled storyteller, whom she obviously is.  The story can be a bit drawn-out at times, but makes up for it when the action hits.  Her warning of "material that may be disturbing" is more related to the development of the main characters rather than any violence or blood or bare skin, so like I said... depth.

Mare Internum is an online science fiction graphic novel about the isolated inhabitants of the planet Mars. The comic updates as many times a week as I can manage, but most likely Monday and Friday.

Please note that this comic contains material that may be disturbing to sensitive viewers, but has been thoroughly researched and will never be used for shock value.

Descende, audax viator!

Far to the North
A young woman in a fictional medieval-northern-european-ish setting punches a dragon(!), gets wooed by creepy woodland dwellers, and tries to save her family from being taken hostage by a band of foreign invaders by supplying them with dragon scales.

Check back every Sunday and Wednesday to see Kelu run, see Kelu jump, and see Kelu save her captive family (with maybe a little help from a scaly, fire-breathing neighbor or two.)
