      As I sit here in my company office, watching the Michael Jackson memorial with everyone else, my thoughts turn to plotting out my schedule for tonight. I've been working on the next Folks of the Forum comic, but a combination of factors is making it harder to do so. The next one is a full-pager with a fair number of new assets needed, though there's also a lot of cut-and-paste involved, so a single solid evening of work should be enough to finish it. Work fast enough, and I might even be able to finish it several hours before midnight.

      On the other hand, today is an austere event, known to all on this site: Bungie Day. Could I claim to be a fan of Halo 3 or Red vs. Blue without pledging my allegiance to the frag? I know a lot of you guys plan on playing tonight, and it would be a good chance for me to catch up with everyone.

      To resolve this internal debate, I leave the decision with you guys. This comic is for all of you who watch this journal, and if enough of you show your support, it should give me the boost I need to push through and finish the job.

      Then again, the chance to earn Recon before the other 3 Vidmaster Challenge achievements come out with Halo 3: ODST is awful alluring...

      Whatever you suggest, make sure you sound off in the comments. Words have much more meaning than poll statistics.

    • Folks of the Forum: Filler #4

      Um… yeah. I decided to try to put up a filler to save me time tonight, but it didn't really work. Regular comic should resume on Wednesday, at any rate.

      Addendum: Turns out Pyrotechnics is an actual D&D spell, for all 4 people in my audience who care.

    • Hard Drive II

      8 years ago

      TheRecreator

      Yup. The whole problem with the reinstallation was that I hadn't reformatted my drive. Apparently, it's possible to copy over data to a hard drive without formatting it. Who woulda thunk it?

      Anyways, I'm gonna set up the computer to recreate my Windows Vista partition. This time, I'm allocating 150 GB to it - should be roomy enough for all the games I want to play, and if I want to add more, I can always adjust the partition.

      ----

      I'd also like to note that due to 4th of July festivities and the unanticipated time I spent trying to swap my hard drives, Folks of the Forum will likely be delayed. I may be able to get it as early as Sunday afternoon… or as late as Wednesday 12:00 AM. I'll keep you all posted as my day unfolds tomorrow.

    • Hard Drive

      8 years ago

      TheRecreator

      Some of you on Skype have been hearing about my quest for a new laptop hard drive for about a week now. Well, today was the day of judgment: I pried open my computer, dug out its bowels, and replaced the non-user-serviceable hard drive.

      The new hard drive is about 2.5x the size of my old one, and just as fast (7200 RPM, for those who care). Installing it required me to unscrew about 25 different screws on my MacBook Pro, pry off the keyboard plate, and disconnect various wires without losing or ripping them. All in all, it was nerve wracking - but I was having too much fun to care. smiley1.gif

      Incidentally, as I just finished putting the thing back together, I just then realized that I should have taken pictures to post in my journal.

      Once I've finished restoring my computer from my Time Machine backup, I'll be back online in full capacity. Until then, I'm gonna sit around the house, bored because I can't use any of my normal computer programs. Also, one last note: if any MacBook users want to swap their own drive, use Time Machine instead of Disk Utility to copy over all your data. Disk Utility is finicky, and choosing the wrong settings in one program can cause the utility to leave out important bits of code when it clones the drive, making it unusable as a boot disk. (*sigh* 4 hours of potential computer use time, wasted.)

    • Dear LA Metro

      TheRecreator

      How is it that you can have half a dozen express buses pass by and four of the regular ones in the direction opposite to the one I want to go in, but not a single eastbound bus in 20 minutes?

      It's enough to drive me mad, I tell 'ya.

      Update: A compounding of delays (red lights, bus stops) and the subway leaving a few seconds early caused me to miss my 5:40 train. I have to catch the next one instead, 50 minutes later. Thanks, LA Metro. I'll be sure to tell all my friends about my wonderful experience using your system.

      Permalink: folksoftheforum.smackjeeves.com/comics/640960/fotf-21-a-sticky-situation/

      Surprisingly enough, I had to spend a whole week on this one. The problem wasn't that it was double length, though - it was that I couldn't figure out how exactly the gelatin would affect our favorite newbies! Would it suffocate them? Jiggle them around? Could they move around in it? These kinds of decisions tend to gum up my works more than anything else.

      Edit (1:47 PM PST): Please go mod this journal - people need to hear about this.

    • Toy Story

      8 years ago

      TheRecreator

      I was in the mood for a movie tonight, so I decided to begin a Pixar marathon. As you can surmise by the journal title, I picked Toy Story and its sequel. There were some things I never noticed (and probably could not have) when I was younger:

      smiley9.gif At the beginning of Toy Story 1, Woody was a lot more egotistical and insecure than I remembered. In fact, I'd say he was kinda a dick.
      smiley9.gif The Prospector from Toy Story 2 reminds me of the Director from Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction. He even says the line, "The prodigal son has returned." smiley1.gif

      Continuing the marathon with Monsters, Inc. tomorrow (note to self: pick up the DVDs for missing Pixar movies). I should still have comic #21 done by then, but if I don't, you now know why: I'm reliving my childhood. smiley12.gif

      So…the infamous USSRvB shows up en masse. They're fine guys, really, but I can't resist the opportunity to bring them in and do a couple of Cold War-style jokes. This will be the last batch of "antagonists" I introduce for a while, though. I promise. smiley1.gif

      Though I should probably point out that this promise doesn't cover mooks and random encounters, so yeah.

    • Before I Sleep…

      8 years ago

      TheRecreator

      Does anybody know why hitting the "Snooze" button on an alarm clock sets back the alarm by 9 minutes instead of 10? Is that some sort of scientifically calculated point where people are predicted to be just about to enter deep sleep again?

      Ponder this thought while I catch some of those "z"s. G'night, folks.

      (And speaking of folks, FotF #20 is ready to go - with one minor detail that may need adjustment. Does anybody in here have any idea how to depict a buzz cut underneath someone's hat?)

      yea I'm sure there probably is... maybe it's just our luck to get fired due to illness. 2 years ago, she got fired from her job after we had our baby since her job didn't allow the necessary time required for recovery from the C-Section. they called it "quitting", but they didn't let her come back after she recovered.

      I doubt it's going to be the DVDs. I asked for them, but she said "you've already downloaded all of them, and burned them to your own disks and watch in our DVD player. why would you want to buy them?" she didn't want to hear my reasoning behind the bonus content. so I'm guessing it's going to be a caboose/church shirt since she tried to ask me secretly what my favorite characters are hah

      I would shoot for the top. Burnie would be my first choice. After that, I would just see who posted in the "First Stop" forum and work around them. I am betting they would post it in a locked thread and just give you credit for writing it.

      This was like 8 pages ago in "Let's Figure this Out," but thanks for the whole breaking down of my argument. The only thing you misinterpreted, was my use of lowly. I was talking about the actual position of a freelancer, not PF itself.

      Talking about Dr. Halsey was probably a mistake, but I just used her example since Cortana was created for her mind while the Dr. continued to work within the UNSC.

      The colors in the color box aren't the only ones you can use. dark gray, gray, and lightgray all work too.
      Also yellow, brown, tan, dark green, indigo, pink, and maroon all work. There are probably more, but those are the ones I've used.

      sorry for the late response (i just got back from work) but if he asks me what it means i'll just show him the website and that the company name is roosterteeth, he wont know what it means, unless he's good at finding the hidden meaning. which he isn't very bright anyway so i'm not worried

      no i really don't have that much work...actually i need to interview my mom and grandma for one of my classes...I can do it over the phone or in person...in person is much easier though...

      otehr than that I dont really have that much work due in the next two weeks or that much going on in those two weeks so in all reality I can get a head of work when I come back from break

    • Absu315

      9 years ago

      yes but in the style of roosterteeth, it doesn't matter, i would expect a line like they if they endorsed a product.
      its something i just wanted to add in for the fact my teacher doesn't know i'm insulting the consumer anyway, so humorous in a sense but just to me

    • Absu315

      9 years ago

      using roostertooth was the point though, if i said "dont be a roosterteeth" it wouldnt seem right because i'd be calling an individual a cockbites, when it is worded to call someone a cockbite.
