Re: More Stuff

And here I just finished reading a book called 'Pillars of the Earth' just a few weeks ago.

The coincidental irony is profound...

Re: Port-and-Starboard Tree

You say that like it's a bad thing. or uncommon. It is if you live in an non-air-conditioned house during the summer in Atlanta and there are three of the things all growing within twenty feet of your bedroom windows... I'd rather have dogwood than sumac. Especially poison sumac. But what would you...

3rd party Batteries for Older Laptops

I have an older Dell Latitude laptop that has a worn battery (it was tooling along just fine w/ about two thirds of it's maximum total watt/hours...) but it seems the 'counter' in the thing decided it was time to buy a new one. I'm still investigating scrambling the odometer in that built-in chip, b...

Re: Chutzpah

I've heard of Bojangles (as in MISTER), but never as a brand name for anything. Popeye's Chicken otoh, they have two piece Tuesdays, a decent 'beans & rice' side dish, and I flip back and forth over them and 'Church's chicken'...

Does anyone else still scroll down on the main page to look for the big button link to the forums? It would seem that I'm still not used to its absence, as I scroll down almost every time.

Re: Port-and-Starboard Tree

I live out near San Francisco, Ca and I cant tell you the number of times people have mentioned how nice the local flowering Magnolias are, only to be brought back to reality by myself when I inform them those are really Dogwoods...

"Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end." But it's still damned good advice, although perhaps a bit anti-Scottish (it could keep these two from getting kilt). That's what the Inebriating beverages are for... PS- We used that joke all the time w/ 'Leading Edge Computers', back in the day. btw...

Castella is wondering if pastries, handed out by ghosts, taste better then just normal pastries.
Pasties have no intrinsic taste themselves. For the most part.

They might be imbued w/ a certain salty or tangy flavor, but otherwise it's usually a slight more olfactory experience.

Re: Fan Art

That's... not bad.

I could only mention personal preferences, in terms of any alterations, and even then the nudges would be both subtle and minimal.

Besides the personal, I might mention a bit of shading to enhance the depth & 'chunkiness' of perspective and translucency...

Re: The Rule 34 boys will love this one

The standard reply- "X Marks the Spot!".

Two other things: Paul is doing well with the shading and form & this picture inspires me to want to be able to remove the tape x'es and make Atsali fully atomically correct, so to speak.
