    • Plexit episode 6!

      2 years ago

      Jalnor

      Six whole episodes already! Yep! Aaaaand there's an extra next week that I'm bursting to share... and I'm already putting the finishing details into the first six panels of episode 7!


      Episode 6: Earl Grey, Hot

    • Oxford assistance

      2 years ago

      Jalnor

      A homeless girl I talk to in Oxford has just seen all her stuff taken away and binned by the council. Tent, bedding, dog toys... she has a rucksack, a blanket and a change of clothes, full stop.
      If you're in the area and you have anything that might be of use to her, please get in touch - I'll hunt through my own stuff tonight.


      Someone high up in the council really hates homeless people, as evidenced by the prior occasions where public pressure has been needed to stop them criminalising homelessness - and they're closing the (hugely insufficient as it is) shelters one by one.

      I'm so angry.

    • Woops! (AKA Plexit episodes 3-5)

      Jalnor

      Sorry! I sort of forgot I was even on here. Somehow. I'd forget my own head if it weren't attached...

      Funny story, actually... as I was getting off the bus this morning, I looked at the driver and went, "OMG, who's that guy?!" Then I realised that I actually didn't remember getting on the bus -.-


      So, comics! Lots and lots of comics! I was absolutely buried in making all the geometry for these scenes...


      Plexit 3: History continued - the computer finishes its story

      There's a "next comic" link at the bottom, but here's what's waiting for you:

      Plexit 4: Are You In?

      Plexit 5: Take Me With You


      But wait, there's more! The Facebook page has exclusive extra images!

      This Saturday will be episode 6... and we're now on a 2-week cycle. On the Saturdays between comics, I also try to include special extras that are published on the Facebook page ;-)

    • Plexit episode 2

      Jalnor

      It's up... and I now have a blog for it!

      I have up to episode 6 written and I'm now working on panel 4 of episode 3. I need to do some 3D modelling to generate the ship views, though.

      Episode 1

      Episode 2

    • New comic

      2 years ago

      Jalnor

      I started screwing about with a comic maker recently. Today, I hit "new comic" and did whatever came to me. The result? Part one of a series I am whimsically calling Plexit. Enjoy!

      Exactly what it says on the tin!

      This was formerly the function served by the original thread, but that's so hard to find - especially since it's not in the group forum. So if you're thinking about running a round, or anything else that's relevant discussion but not taking place within a game, this is the place to put it.

      The Mafia Game is back - in the Space Station Variant! Set a little bit closer to home in all four dimensions... the station is a refuge for the righteous in a dystopian future born of my wondering where our civilisation is heading ;-) I'm hoping for a swift and decisive victory against the Mafia, but I'm giving them bloody good odds of victory with all the various things that may or may not happen depending on how people use their powers.

      My little island just got littler. Time for a new one.

    • I just applied

      3 years ago

      Jalnor

      ...for my old job. The one in the NHS, about which I wrote a book. Six years and twenty-one days after I left. Or exactly 316 weeks, if you prefer.

      Of course, that job is some three hundred and fifty miles from my house, which is a little bit far. I left it because I was moving almost three hundred miles away and considered that out of commute range, so I'm going to have to figure something out in terms of moving. If I get/take the job, that is. In fairness, I have a good chance of getting offered it and there's a good chance I'll still want it by then. But will I be able to say yes? That's tough.

      I have friends down here. A lot of friends. So many awesome social events I attend. Kappy and Sekai are now within "let's have lunch" range. My long-term friend Carley is now the same in the opposite direction. The Discworld events are in Wincanton, which is even farther south than I am. I have a girlfriend who's in Wales, so she's already 100 miles away. I do this and the distance more than triples.

      But I'll get to see other people again, whom I miss dearly. My sisters. Damien and Teekay. My best friend. My one remaining grandparent, who is now in a nursing home as her memory slowly disintegrates. The LARP group I joined, which operates mainly in Glasgow. Those are just the top of the list. There are a lot of other relatives to see more of and even a couple of old friends.


      But I do miss that job and I won't miss this one.

      Sort of, but I don't think I have much to add. My basic plan is to head to the nearest secure shelter and wing it from there. As it stands, there are too many variables to enact a plan effectively, and in downtown Los Angeles, my best bet really is to get on my school campus - it survived the 1992 riots of LA just fine. I heard there were tanks, even.

      Yeah, it just happens. The words just pop into your head on demand.

      Ben Browder said at London Comic Con that most of the interest in Farscape happened after it was cancelled.

    • Yaini

      8 years ago

      After a while the lingo just slips in. And besides Farscape Swears are a lot more exotic.

      I remember watching it as kid, BBC2, Monday night 7-7:45. I think it MAY have affected me growing up.

    • Yaini

      I'm going to make an absurd leap here but from your use of the word "dren" I take it you are a Farscape Fan?

      I might be able to get an i7 core. It depends though, since the motherboards for them are more expensive. I'll mention it to Fritzmonkey at some point.

      I'm Central so GMT-6. Anytime after 4:30pm to... 4am. What? I can't sleep when it's dark outside so I tend to go to bed as close to dawn as posible.

      But it is volunteer work, if I have to I can leave at 2 or 3pm.

      I leave in September. It's insane.
      I'm ridiculously excited, but I'm also scared out of my mind.
      It'll be good, though. I'm just trying to keep studying the language throughout the summer so I don't lose it.

      For your particular branch of insanity? Not as such.

      I mostly reside in the roleplaying area of the site, as well as the red vs blue board.

      I could, however, point you to the comic book movies thread, I reckon you already know a few of them.
