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.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

What is this fandom's deal with lesbian ninjas? Is it some fantheory about Nightbird or something?

@  OrionPax44 : (15 November 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Huh my phone didn't even alert me for some reason. Guess it only does on the Mayhem Discord Hangouts??

@  BlackMax : (14 November 2017 - 09:41 PM)

Telly, you are FIRED as my PR agent. :D

@  Telly : (14 November 2017 - 09:05 PM)

This is one of three MLP related threads. Here are the image and the new episode discussion threads.

Previous general thread can be viewed here:
http://www.allspark....s...t=0&start=0
For future notice: if the past pattern holds true, this thread will at some point be locked due to length causing issues with the board. When that happens, look for a new thread. This will certainly be replaced.

For those just joining us, there is currently a new My Little Pony cartoon being produced called "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". It is surprisingly well-written and funny. More information, including an episode list, can be found here:
http://en.wikipedia....ndship_is_Magic
Episodes can be watched on the relatively-new channel called the Hub or on various sites such as Youtube. I won't do any linking, but if you type an episode title into Youtube you'll probably find it.

Image collections. Choose "image gallery view" in the upper-right for best view-ability.
Apple Bloom
Applejack
Fluttershy
Pinkie Pie
Rainbow Dash
Rarity
Spike
Twilight Sparkle
Groups
Other

Edit: Seems like the old thread was locked due to forum housekeeping, continue your pony discussions here!

The way I understand it, it was because it was 1 of the longest threads on the board so was becoming a major problem to read through in 1 sitting.

Lots of new ponies found it cuz its the biggest Pony discussion online. They might not know to move up a level to find the new thread.

Edit: Actually, a good point. A lot of the newly signed up people in the last pony thread gave me the impression that they found the Allspark via a link to that thread.

Kinda sad that we're starting over, but such is the way of the super long awesome thread. As it dies a new one rises from the flames.

I kinda wish there weren't so many upcoming episode synopsises floating around, with little indication of which ones will be real and which are fake, but it does seem to get people speculating.

Something that people will probably be interested in is that I am currently working on renaming and sorting my folder of several hundred saved pony images, both still and animated, with the intention of uploading them to a publicly viewable Mediafire account. I'll be sure to post the link once it's presentable.

And got a drop box account...

Too bad, it was only 1 page short of getting 150 pages long...

Now, something completely different... or rather, not - From Equestria Daily,all the MLP songs so far in MP3 format! Yes, even Art of the Dress from the talented Rarity. Though most songs are from Pinkie, one with "Flutterguy's" contribution. icon-waspy.gif

And those who joined late and did not find see the old thread yesterday, go and check out my drawing of Rainbow Dash as the newest Green Lantern Corps member! icon-fire.gif (Yes, I am shamlessly self-advertising.)

And to reply to Dvandom's comment there, I completely agree, Pinkie would be a great Indigo Lantern, I mean I still have no idea what the heck they represent. Though Fluttershy as Violet... not sure, those Sapphires might talk about love, but they sure force it upon unwilling people and kill bystanders recklessly. She wouldn't really like that. I think she's more of a Blue material, quietly helping out others.

I find it worriesome that my pony images folder has well over 1,000 files in it now. I hang out on /co/ too much, apparantly.

I'd love to get a collection of all your awesome gifs and such in one place to add to it though.

(dave had also given Fluttershy Yellow, so I went with that, and gave Twilight Blue cuz..well..it fit better than violet.)

To reprint my listing of the ponies/rings...

If Rainbow is Green...

Fluttershy - Yellow
Rarity - Orange
Applejack - Red
Pinkie - Indigo
Twilight - blue

And Black Lantern Derpy.

Wouldn't the Black Lantern ring belong to Luna/Nightmare Moon rather? Or maybe she and Celestia are like the Guardians... or even more likely, like the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor. (You know, before there were lots of one of these two guys, and before the other guy joined the Sinestro corps instead of destroying the universe, as he previously used to do... Man, there is a reason I don't read DC comics anymore)

Yeah, we'll go with that....(rather than I wanted Derpy to have a ring, but thought that Violet would give creedence to the Derpy has kids meme which I'm not a fan of).
