I could handle going back to not existing. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 01:14 PM)

Life is the brief recess we get from not existing before going back to not existing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:10 PM)

Nah.. Life is simply the precursor to death.

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 12:41 PM)

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 November 2017 - 08:37 AM)

You won't be at school or work anymore... so mitigated success.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2017 - 05:21 PM)

Just don't try to plug yourself into an outlet. It won't end well.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2017 - 04:57 PM)

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 November 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Hit F11 Pennpenn

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:15 AM)

I get that people like tabs. Fine. Whatever. I just detest the fact that most current browsers don't let you have the option of just hiding the bar away so I don't have to even think about the wretched bullshit things.

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

Does anyone know of a browser that doesn't force tabs on you? Just... any sodding browser that doesn't have tabs.

@  Telly : (16 November 2017 - 01:59 AM)

being mostly wrong is better than being TOTALLY wrong!

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 09:26 PM)

ALL HAIL THE BLESSED OCTOBUTT.

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 08:24 PM)

I really hope so. All of my high school drawings and notes (Hand-written notes! God, I'm old.) from girls are in a chest in the attic of my parents house. I'll check when I visit!

@  MEDdMI : (15 November 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Do you still have those drawings?

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 06:31 PM)

I think lesbian ninjas is just an unmitigated good idea. *shrug*

@  Devcon : (15 November 2017 - 05:56 PM)

well, that and Balloon Doggies, Mr secretary

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:12 PM)

It's my crowning Allspark achievement! You're welcome.

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:05 PM)

"Someone" being me. No mystery to it, I used to draw a lot during class when I was in high school. I came up with lesbian ninjas, which were a specialized team of assassins with amazing hair and impeccable style. I scanned some of my drawings and mentioned them a few times on the ezboard 17 years ago, and people seemed to like the idea.

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Thanks in any case!

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Oh, wow. That is ages ago. 

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:03 PM)

ages ago meaning when the spark was still on ezboard

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:02 PM)

i think maybe it was part of a title of a movie someone posted ages ago and the "lesbian ninja" part stood out and people just latched on to it. please note this is possibly totally and completely wrong cause my memory is terrible anymore

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I don't think it's a fandom thing, I think it's an Allspark thing. Or that's been my perception. Mayhem has some lesbian ninja regulars now but I think the reference is much older. = ] 

@  Robowang : (15 November 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Who knows. I always thought it was stupid.

Anybody been reading any of Rebirth? I've been loving Green Arrow and New Super-Man, even if the art in the latter is a bit shonky at times. Doom Patrol is exactly the right level of weird, too, as is Shade the Changing Girl.

 

Generally the line as a whole looks promising; it feels like it's got a solid direction in a way that neither DC nor Marvel have had in recent years. Hopefully Marvel takes a few lessons from this, and hopefully they're the right ones (i.e. not "drop all diversity and tell the same stories over again").

 

Blue Beetle and Detective Comics - well, the entire Batman line, really - have been disappointing, though, which is a shame; those were the two books I was most interested in.

It will be a long time before I go back to a standard DCU book, but Young Animal is off to a great start. I think this looks to be the perfect Doom Patrol book (something many of us have been waiting a looooong time for!). Haven't checked out Shade but the first issue of Cave Carson was good too. Wonder Twins by Scioli is about the greatest thing I can imagine.

So, Wednesday's issue of the Flash (with classic Wally and kid Wally meeting) was actually great, and really heartwarming; huge step up from the boring Zolomon retread it had been previously. Here's hoping this is actually permanent improvement, and not just a weirdly good one-off like that Nova issue with the Captain.

 

I'm kind of feeling lukewarm on Rebirth as a whole, though; while it's good that pretty much all the books are okay to great, I'm really missing the weirder, more fringe-y titles from the New 52 and DC You. There's a reason that most of what I'm getting from DC is Young Animal, Flintstones, and the guilty pleasure of Sixpack and Dogwelder. The weirdest thing that "main" DC is doing is New Super-Man.

Oh, absolutely. Honestly, the Chinese Trinity are some of my favourite characters in comics recently.

The FFoC have really cool designs, too, and I like that Folding Paper Man doubles as their Doll Man and Plastic Man.

So, hey, other than that... other thing... that happened today, there were also comics.

 

Mother Panic! ...I wasn't feeling it. It was just a kind of underwhelming mix-up of Batman and Punisher. Great art, but I don't think I'll be following this one.

 

Doom Patrol, meanwhile, is going from strength to strength. I think this is gonna be one of my comics of the year. That "Danny Comics" interlude? MAN.

Spoiler

 

New Super-Man is still the best of the Rebirth titles. You really get the feeling that Baixi was waiting for a while to use the "I'm Bat-Man" phrase.

loved doom patrol..its just...the right kind of weird and fun. Also, notice that Flex is the only non-danny based comic in the store.

 

Mother Panic was good too...i like the story so far, but i hate the art. Like Nghthawk over at marvel, its just not my kind of art. The Gotham Radio backup was fun, but all I could think about while reading it was "look at that Robin costume...where and when does this take place?"...because that was clearly a Pre-flashpoint original Robin suit.

Priest?! Priest is writing Deathstroke?!

Checked out the first issue because man, that dude can write. Don't give a crap about Deathstroke, but for Priest I'm there. It didn't blow me away but it was solid and I'll probably give it another issue or two at least.

I'm not sure I'd be confident in recommending it after just the initial oneshot, but it's Priest, so I'm fairly happy to assume that once it gets going it has a good chance of being literally the best book DC is publishing.

But I'm with you. I mean... Deathstroke. Of course, I used to feel the same way about Black Panther and Priest pushed him into my top 5 favourite Marvel characters. So.

Man, today's New Super-Man absolutely pulls out all the stops. Character development for Kenan? Correlating his powers - and the S-shape on his chest - with the bagua trigrams? And most of all...

Spoiler

If you read one DC comic, it's got to be this one, because wow.

 

(Also, the new "villain" Alpaca is apparently based on the "Grass Mud Horse" meme, which is pretty great.)

decided to try JLA Rebirth because *Real* Lobo (aka the non-Twilight-Sissy-Faux-Bo) is in it, and he's luckily sufficiently Main-Man-Like for the moment.

Could have used more "Feetal's Gizz!" shouts though. But it's good to have the Main Man back.
With many thanks to Alex Milne for the new Dragnet Avatar!

I've only checked out Titans mainly and the first few issues of Superwoman. The bait and switch on the Superwoman book didn't sit well with meand I dropped it after issue 2. Titans has me with my fondness for the characters from the tv series and the fact that the Wally I know is one of the members plus the whole mystery of the Watchmen thing going on. Though not much has happened on the latter part. But my first three DC comics were parts 1,2,and 4 of Wally's "Year One" story in the Ninety's. Wally has always been my favorite DC hero since.

 

 

And while it is part of the Rebirth but I really don't consider Batman Beyond as part of it. Sadly even though I'm glad Terry's back I really don't like the post apocalyptic future Gotham being the last bastion of humanity angle they have had since beginning Tim's tenure as the Bat of Tomorrow. And the latest issues new suit has me really hoping it doesn't last long. Adding more red lines doesn't make it look any cooler.

 

Oh and I think I checked out the first Superman issue with Damien trying to take on Jon Kent. That was just out of curiosity.

All I want in life is a "Lobo vs Lobo" miniseries where classic Lobo and New52 Lobo (played as a parody of anime bishonen heroes) repeatedly murder each other in hilarious ways.

Lobo, proper Lobo, good Lobo, is one of those things... I shouldn't like him, but he's just too gosh darn loveable. Doing right by Lobo should absolutely be a priority for DC in this Deadpool-obsessed world.

So after significant delays, Doom Patrol is on an axey hiatus for a while after issue six (which hits April 29 but was due in Feb). Apparently 7-9 will be resolicited at some point in the future, but we'll see.
