General Chat / Re: Favorite Webcomic?

Good time to ask, with a number of comics hitting rocky updates, Schlock Mercenary ( is an easy choice for #1.

Little Tales ( has been on my mind for a while and fits #2 well.

And for number 3...hard choice, but I think I'll go with Chirault (  Can't pass up that artwork.

MHPayne: ooo...good choices, I don't recognize any of those.  Time to read.

I'm amazed at how often I recognize these applications.  I've been reading for a few months now, you've done a lot of nice work on the characters.

Good luck, A more webcomics-ish archive would be a welcome improvement to FA's gallery.

I wonder if this is going to be the new attempt at AI.  Take the action that has the highest probability of being right from a block of seed data and reenforcement.

The possibilities are endless!  Why stop with filtering message board stupid?  Check the code uploaded to the file server; see if my next move as a probability of being stupid; maybe you could filter the submissions of an art-site like that...

...dammit, that's going to cost me two cups of tea and few hundred lines of Perl.

My model waited just until I drew in the front paws and committed myself to the pose before walking around and eventually laying down.  Should have made more spirally things to hide my guesstimation.

There's also an older game...I think we played it in Windows 3.1...called Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure.  The game was alright, but I preferred the music.

I remember that one.  Excellent game!

Just noticed I had two of the tracks of this game in my playlist:
The tracks are only around 1-2 minutes each, but they loop perfectly and sound great.

Also Sid and Al's Incredible Toon Machine had a good music selection.

Mind Rover!

The game got boring, but I kept the CD for the soundtrack.

In the future...
No longer will we have to settle for just one Bach piece to played at a time.
No longer will organs be the only instrument with nifty controls.
No longer will the neighbor with the barking dog be the most hated person on the block.

The Harpsicarillorgan with bells, pipes, strings and 100% more strait lines that I can draw.

(Plush fox on the music stand comes standard of course)

Fun! I need an excuse to get back into practice.
Now was I always this terrible, or is this just decaying skills from a few months away from my pencils...

Well this has gotten weirder, the previous version I had working for you didn't animate for me.  No matter, with a version working for both platforms I should be able to do something.

Again thanks for the help.

OK, how about this one?
I've added some code that claims to control the UI.

Lovely, just *ing lovely.  Well at least the hacky workaround does something.

Thanks for the help.

griever, can you try this version?

Hmm...Java appears to be using a flashy user interface rather than the bland buttons I asked for...
Can you see red spots if I do this: ?

New version uploaded to clean up a few things (time to clear the java cache again).  The newness is obvious with an eye-candy feature I tacked on to the end of a game.

Quote from: grieverAhhh...I don't get any red points when the screen loads.  I misread and thought they became apparent (like Minesweeper?).  That would be problem #1 for me, I guess.
...and it just HAD to be with the mac.  Linux or Windows I could bang out tests myself.
OK...can you do the following:
* take a screen shot of the browser after the java loads.
* click on one of the little white squares
* copy out the contents of the textbox
I'll take a look & try to figure out where to go from there.

Ah Java, demonstrating that "Works Everywhere" is subtly different from "Works the same Everywhere."
