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)

@  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.

@  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??

Typically, the hair from the 80s cartoon is supposed to be stupider.

And wasn't she the medic of the ThunderCats? Now she's a angsty gladiator?

While I hated those Wildstorm comics (save the Origins mini), I thought the name "Doberlord" was hilariously awesome. So I kinda would like it if they carried that over, yearh.

I was trying to remember earlier today if she had some kind of job. Really, after a couple years stranded on Third Earth, other lady on the team was probably role that everyone appreciated.

Previews are up on Thundercats.org as well as design sheets of Pumyra, Dobo, and some of the dog gladiators. Great designs, btw. Love how much of their armor is made of discarded technology they no longer know how to use.

Was the "mace for head" robot guy a hommage from the old show, btw?

Umm, I fail to see any significant difference in her hairstyle compared to the old version.

And the whole hatred against Lion-O (and maybe the whole royal family?) just makes her more interesting. Wonder what caused that...

Dan Norton has uploaded tons and tons of designs, sketches, and even early concept art of characters and vehicles from the show, it's worth checking out - even a lot of minor characters are there like the Drifter, the Duelist, Khamai, Shen... Oh, and guide on how the Berbils transform!

Also, LIon-O's mom was supposed to be called Leona, but much like with Chrysalis in MLP FiM, it was never used in the show.

My thoughts are kinda random on this episode. I'm not sure I could make a cohesive review on it. So I think I'll just leave you all some some of these tid bits.

Cheetara: She must have survived the fall of Thundera.
Me: Now, now! Let's not jump to conclusions. It's entirely possible she died.

The cats don't seem to like the gladitorial arena...because...you know...it's so barbaric...unlike that ringing the bell game they had in Thundera.

And darn it all, Pumyra seems to have gotten my furry fetish in an uproar again.....but you'll never hear me say that out loud <_<

I absolutely must go through the entire season and count how many times Wilhelm's bought it.

I'm not really sure I care for the resolution. The build up was great and all, but it seems Pumyra and Dobo had a change of heart just a bit too easily.
How about we start with your complete and total surrender?

Eh, it's a slight improvement, as it looks like hair, instead of some sort of weird dead animal on her head. Plus, it doesn't look like she has a bad make up job, but it looks like its part of her colorations.

Don't get me wrong, I don't love the look, but it is a decent attempt to update the horrible look she originally had.

My question is when exactly Panthro was a slave of the Dogs? It must've been some adventure he was one before he adn Grune went on their world tour. I liked how they did the flashback with lots of vague shapes; they were cutting their enemies up with axes while working around the gore. Nice bit of direction to meet BS&P.


Or not. Panthro & Grune were apparently gone for a long time. After Panthro & Grune parted company, he could have been forced into slavery. Grune & Mumra didn't immediately attack Thundera, because Mumra had to build his army of lizard people.

Or at least that a guess where you could fit this in.

I hate to say it, but I know how you feel...

I like that she's got a good deal of characterization. Bitter, a fighter, and still hopeful, as given by the ending. I just hope we keep her (and any other rescued slaves) on as part of the full team. I mean, Thundertank didn't just quintuple in size to be cool after all.

I have to admit though, as much as I get bored with the kittens antics, the Cleptovoyancy idea is something I have GOT to use in D&D.
