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.

Nah.
It's mediocre, sure, and nowhere near the level of Power Man and Iron Fist or Nighthawk, but it's not BAD. Certainly a lot better than the name suggests.

Also, apparently the author wanted to use American Eagle, but was told to use Red Wolf (because all Natives are the same, I guess?)

Also, whats wrong with Powerman and Iron Fist? that book is LOADS of fun.

 

and hell pretty much anythin that Marvels got out right now is better that than steaming crap that is Squirrel Girl.

A lot of Marvel's pretty bad right now. Nova's the only thing I'm really digging, plus Hulk, Unworthy Thor, Hydra Cap and Ultimates.

 

I hate to say it, but Marvel needs to reset its slate. Marvel's in a bad state right now of pumping out titles that no one cares about and pushing certain titles that under-perform badly. And the reports of them overshipping comics is quite bad. My local store is giving overshipped comics away now.

Squirrel Girl is absolutely at the top of the "best things Marvel has published in decades" list.

Occupy Avengers just bored me in concept. Not what I'm interested in Super Hero comic wise. But I've honestly heard mostly good things from others folks after the first couple issues at least.

-ZacWilliam, seriously anyone who can dislike Squirrel Girl just told me that we are not going to agree on even the basic level about what makes comics awesome.

i hated the Batgirl revamp too, but I oddly love Hellcat. Ms Marvel and Gwenpool are at the top of my fave female led books...Squirrel Girl just doesn't work for me, I hate the tiny text thing, I dunno, its just not a book that's written for me...and that's ok...the best part of comics is being able to find books that speak to you and enjoy them.

I've said it before, but I can't enjoy USG. The art is... well, it's bad; character's faces are grotesquely distorted in a way that doesn't line up with their intended expressions, there are irritating proportion errors, and the backgrounds and colours tend to be sparse and ugly. There was a fill-in artist a few months back who was mimicking Henderson's style but without the face or anatomy issues and it made it so much more readable.
As for the writing, every character just feels like "Ryan North dressed as [character]". They don't have their own voices. Plus, I don't feel like the college setting is a good fit for what I want out of Squirrel Girl.
That said: I do really like North's characterisation of Doreen, and it works really well when she's in stuff like New Avengers. Also I like Nancy.

I love Ryan North, and I have loved Squirrel Girl for many years, but yeah, at launch the book wasn't doing it for me. And despite Marvel trying to push her pretty hard I haven't been compelled to go back.

Gwenpool... that's a book explicitly designed to piss a lot of people off. The whole concept must be pretty irritating... to readers who are boring losers. Because oh my god, what a book. First Gwenpool appearance I read blew my mind, I had no idea what her deal was and was not prepared for it. I assumed she was just a Deadpool/Gwen Stacy mashup taking the piss out of Spider-Gwen but that doesn't scratch the surface. So funny, so much fun.

Occupy Avengers seems a lot subtler about grappling with "real world" issues than Champions does at least.  Too bad Hawkeye's gotten all murder-y of late...him and Red Wolf do give off a whole "Lone Ranger and Tonto" vibe.

 

I do feel like they're trying to pinhole Clint Barton into that "regular guy dealing with regular problems" niche now.  Not everything has to be like that Fraction book.  The whole point of Hawkeye is that he's a regular bloke who stands among supersoldiers, mutants, and gods and holds his own.

 

I miss Hawkeye and Mockingbird.  There was a fun book.
