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.

@  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)

@  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.

Gotta get my ZacWilliam on but i dont like this. I dont mind Archie being more adult but Archie being with a teacher, the whole thing centering on a murder mystery, and the kiss between betty and veronica just to join the squad...im not feeling this at all.

I wouldve preferred a more serious but still lighthearted take

Yeah, they were very firmly going for this Twin Peaks thing and if you don't dig that direction then this show is not for you. It's not Archie as a teen drama. It's not supposed to be Dawson's Creek or the OC or whatever. It's all murder and sex and personality disorders. I'm hoping they don't go down the Afterlife route with Cheryl and Jason but we'll see.

If I have seen them before, then I must not have known their names.

 

Though, I'd need to see more of the mayor and Betty's dad to see if I do recognize either of them.

The writer of Afterlife is the producer of this so... it could go the same way? He might introduce the lesbian part too.

Whatever happened to Afterlife anyway? It's been dead in the water for a while now?

Never saw twin peaks but if this is how it looks like, that's fine.

I'm pretty sure Mrs Lodge's original name was never Hermione, haha.

Btw, Wally's Shortpacked had a strip that explained Jughead's hat. The live action hat looks like the crown edges were sewed up.

Yeah, Aguirre-Sacasa running the show is why I'm worried it will be too Afterlifey. I'm not sure what happened to the book... I think there were delays and I'm not sure whether it's been officially cancelled. That would be weird as it seemed to be really popular. Aguirre-Sacasa may have become too busy once they made him Archie's EIC or whatever big promotion he got.

It appears that Hermione always has been Veronica's mum's name. I was surprised too.

I love this show, but I would as somebody who loves dramatic high-school nonsense and has no (serious) history with Archie comic books.

 

I want Veronica to be my favorite character, but I'm kind of annoyed by how she'll at a certain way and then be unable to describe her motivations (usually the show would subtly make reference to them, but this is not that sort of show, this is a show where everybody seems to be unable to stop talking their feelings).

 

Even though this show's premise is dark, I feel like there's an undercurrent of optimism? Archie himself seems to be keen on always trying to do the right thing and most of the characters aren't outright evil, they're just ridiculously troubled (ie CW characters).

I love how Hermoine presents herself and her motives to her daughter, because it genuinely cements how Veronica felt about the move to Riverdale, in addition to her own statements about wishing to change. Like; just how much she genuinely believes that the drop in status is karmic retribution for her family's actions, but then her mother starts to pull her back in with all her smooth talk.

 

It's not a blatant as Betty and her mother, but it's just as brilliant.

Caught up. I also thought Polly would be Betty or something, but she's real.

The Jughead move came out of nowhere for me. Has he even eaten any burgers here? Or met Ethel?

I actually like Valerie a lot with Archie. I think it was in the comics for a while? It won't last on the show but it's nice. I like the Josie dad drama too (what did he not like, really?)

Hey, no Cheryl. Nice.

I have a higher-than-average affection for Archie so I was interested. But it's the CW! The channel that made Dawson's Creek and Smallville! I don't care for those. But then my friends were all "So good!" and I'm like "Hmmm maybe" but then again my friends also like Lady Gaga for some reason. So anyway, I gave it a shot. And... it surpassed the hype, by a lot. I quickly binged on it and now I want more.

 

Cheryl is so over-the-top villainous, it almost is too much. But then her parents (and Alice Cooper too) turn the villainy up to 11 making the whole show have a "Scheming adults vs well-meaning kids" thing.

 

Jughead is a great take on the character. Aww yeah Bughead!

 

Kevin feels a bit like the audience surrogate at this point.

 

Archie's "music? sports?" plotline is so boring when there's murder mystery to solve. So when he's on screen I just focus on his powerful weight-lifting eyebrows.

 

The pussycats feel a bit shoehorned in for the sake of it, but it doesn't hurt anything and the music is gooooood. 

 

Reggie is fun but disappointingly sidelined for the time being.


Woooo!
