@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 May 2020 - 06:19 AM)

If your primary is getting cleaned up anyway cause you were backing stuff up, then yeah, no reason not to. But largely, it's not a necessary step.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 AM)

It's like you find out that there's a fire going to break out in the house you live in soon, so you find a new place, get your entire Transformers collection into safe storage, and now all that's left are the empty cabinets which you intend to move over to your new place soon. If the fire breaks out before then, sure, you'd need to get new cabinets, but your toys are already out of the danger zone.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:27 AM)

At this point, I'm in a "if the old system crashed before the new drive arrives, it will be slightly annoying, not a complete disaster" mood.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I've mostly just backed up my personal files and stuff on the external hard drive. The existing Windows installment is supposed to be directly cloned to the new drive once it arrives.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 May 2020 - 01:44 AM)

Who else has ever been so out of it that you've gotten into the shower with your glasses on?

@  Echowarrior : (20 May 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Nope. We've been forced to go with Eclipse. It sucks, and I will continue to call the people in charge of the website fascists until they give me reason to do otherwise.

@  CORVUS : (20 May 2020 - 10:20 PM)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new layout either. Fortunately you can stay with the old one though.

@  Liege : (20 May 2020 - 08:57 PM)

So now it matches 90% of the content.

@  Trpodeca : (20 May 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Wow the new Deviantart layout is terrible.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 May 2020 - 10:39 AM)

Are you referring to cloning your drive to install into your computer as the replacement, or are you creating an image to restore from should something unforseen occur?

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2020 - 06:36 AM)

Backing up the data not necessary for running Windows on an external drive for safekeeping, trimming down the old drive to a bare minimum, then migrating the old drive to the new one.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2020 - 06:35 AM)

Yes, but it will make direct migration faster, no?

It's been months but I read through Renew Your Vows.  I don't get the Battleworld stuff.  Is this mini one of the non real dimensions?  Love the story but, dang, the daughter should have been May and not Annie.  Would have loved it more if it was May for Spider-Girl and not this Annie May Parker AMP thing, sheesh.  Bonus for the Power Pack kids.  Yay female Beetle too.

 

I read the new Amazing #1 (ugh, issue reset)  yeah, gotta follow the new continuity but whooooa!  Prowler!  Now that a black Spider-Man that, uh, that actual could pull off.  (I recall Todd McFarlane drawing Prowler being all moody and Spawn-ish before, hehe).  Would be nice if Rocket Racer could be an alternate Spider-Man.  The gay wedding was ok (make it a superhero), seeing the old Horizon cast was nice,  Sajani, yiiiiikes.  But my favorite for my romantic tin heart is Anne Marie and yoooooow!

 

The back ups... is Ox and Walrus dead?  Please, I hope not.  Too many dead folks.  Who's the daddy of... who is that anyway?  Jessica Drew from 616?  The comic strip with the toilet, eeeeeew!

 

Great Dan Slott issue!  Looking forward to the rest!

 

Renew Your Vows is not the main Marvel universe, no.   Every universe was destroyed in Secret Wars and bits of them were turned into territories and mashed together to make Battleworld.

 

Renew Your Vows was set on one of these territories featuring the Parker who was from that territory (Called "The Regency"), who is different from the Parker in the Spider-Verse Secret Wars book (set in the territory "Arachnia") or any of the other Peter's running around.

 

At some point the original Marvel universe is going to come back, and it'll be basically the old continuity, so the new Amazing Spider-Man is following up One More Day and Superior Spider-Man and all that.  Due to delays, we're not getting the Secret Wars issues that explain how that happens for several more months, so the post-Secret Wars books have already started coming out alongside Secret Wars ones and its kind of a mess right now.

So this Regency territory's characters are like the Spider-Verse? So AMP might appear in the Webwarriors title? That'd be nice. She fights dirty (scratching people's eyes out? Really?) and I'd like Mayday to reach her a lesson.

Oh, I mean Prowler could be the black Spider-Man that actor was campaigning for.

Too many Spider-titles. Hope it doesn't collapse under itself.

I see ASM 1 has made the front page on a few news pages. That's pretty darn good considering it's not a death.

We don't what of Battleworld will be left when Secret Wars is over, so I can't say if Regency universe gets restored or if those characters will show up again.

It actually already happened in Amazing #1.  Scary to think about, really. I don't like it;

Well, we needed an unnecessarily powerful opponent for Pete now that Morlun's dead...

 

...no, we didn't.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Goblin is still alive. Just laying low. Peter being all multi national (mini Stark) means he'll get a higher class of villain instead of the usual street thug tho. Hope they're just as colorful.

I don't like Regent operating in the real world cuz he'd be killing heroes and villains to be powerful. Maybe it's a marvel mandate. The mutants would disappear cuz he killed most of them, haha. Then it's just inhumans.

So from the 3rd issue, the Zodiac is a Hydra, AIM, whatever terrorist group. Since I don't keep track of the Marvel Universe, are yet terrorizing other heroes? And since Peter is a global too, is he making his mark in other titles? Like, some hero using his tech or something?

Love Clash. Don't let him turn bad.

I'm guess this issue is Slott's statement on the Fantastic Four being shelved? That he'll keep the flame burning until the FF make a come back?

Would have been happier without the return of Norman. Harry is ok as Peter's friend but not Norman.

Zodiac has been around for a long time in one form or another. Dating back to 1970 with their first appearance in Avengers #72
