Based on his observations so far, I think it’s pretty reasonable for Data to conclude that role-playing mostly involves interrupting with and disagreeing with Geordi and insisting on doing things that don’t actually improve the story, so.
And it’s just silly technical shit that’s my fault, I forgot to update my DNS when I knew I was gonna need to so we had an hour or two of it just not being there and depending on where you are in the internet it might take a bit to snap back to happiness. Hopefully shit will return to form soon enough; if you’re reading this, that’s a pretty good sign, obviously, though I’m trying to figure out why I’m not getting comic images loading still.
OH MY GOSH GUYS IT’S A THANKSGIVING UNMIRACLE
THERE’S TOO MUCH FOOD AND FAMILY AND STUFF
MONDAY SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD DAY TO POST THE NEXT COMIC
HOPE YOU’RE ALL HAVING GOOD FOOD COMAS
BTW ALL CAPS IS THE NEW THING, ALL THE KIDS ARE DOING IT, I DON’T EVEN HAVE LOWERCASE KEYS ON MY KEYBOARD ANYMORE
I’ve got my head buried deep in an unrelated project and I just keep not getting my train of thought switched over to Larp Trek this morning. Back on Weds.
Here is a conciliatory trek gif, of Uhura pulling off a textbook double-butt-pat.
Not sure what’s up exactly but DH/WP is throwing a terse error when I try and get the comic uploaded. Looks like it may be a disk issue of some sort, but who knows. Put in a support ticket, will get the comic up when I can.
Spoiler alert: Riker is kind of a dick.
Updated: instead of there being no comic yesterday, there is silly sketch of this script comic today. Huzzah!
I am at the actual beach this morning! Not an imaginary beach, no dead Jennifer Siskos around, just a plain normal Pacific Northwest beach with overcast skies and rain and saltwater and seafood and so on.
And because I’m at the beach, I do not have photoshop or my headshot collection with me, so it’s just literally impossible for a comic strip to happen.
GEORDI: Captain, what if we invert the temporal coil shielding? We could divert the tachyon flow back into the beachometer–
DATA: Thus creating a chronometric “echo” of a future comic strip. There is a theoretical basis for this idea, sir.
PICARD: Picard to writers, you’re needed on the bridge.
PICARD: Writers. Script doctors. Line editors. This is no milk run you’re suggesting; who knows what we’ll encounter on the tachyonarrative threshold? We’ll need a team ready to contain and repair any critical plotholes.
GEORDI: Uh, well, sir, there’s–
RIKER: Sir, there are no writers.
PICARD: Well, call them in, I don’t care if they’re on shore leave, this is an emerg–
RIKER: No, sir, I mean there are no writers. There never have been. We’re in a fan-written webcomic, sir. It’s one guy. And he’s at the beach.
This is a crazy wonderful thing that a theater group in Portland called Atomic Arts has been putting on for five years running; it went from tiny in the first year to just huuuuuuuge these days, with probably a couple thousand people showing up yesterday at Cathedral Park for one of the final performances.
I went with my wife and staked out some decent watching space early in the day so we could see it with a bunch of Metafilter friends, and it was a lovely time. I took a bunch of photos of the performance and the crowd; here’s a few below, but you can check out all of the Trek in the Park photos on my flickr account.
Also, Garrett “Ensign Kim from Voyager” Wang flew in from DragonCon for a one-line cameo.
I also considered “Frakes, Frakes, Frakes Senora, Frakes it all the time” but that seemed like a bit of a stretch.
Anyway, some clever internet person a while back took the time to de-shake a few seconds of the Enterprise-D under attack, and the result is simultaneously predictable and delightful:
Not sure what exactly is up but I’m seeing some odd lack-of-CSS pages in some situations, presumably related to me just finally updating a few plugins along with the WP 3.6 release. So if shit looks odd, that’s what’s up. Yellow alert!
