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

17) Have you ever met Lauren Faust?

18) Have you ever met any of the voice actors?

19) Which is your favorite pony?

-You guys haven't figured this one out on your own yet? A little detective work with the end credits should make for an easy answer.

I had that figured out a long time ago. icon-arcee.gif
I originally had it narrowed down to 2 names, but wasn't absolutely sure which of the two names it was until you practically gave us the answer a while back. I'm sure others know your name besides me, but I still didn't think it appropriate to post your real name. Unless you don't really mind the whole world knowing who Nayuki really is. icon-hotrod.gif

I've never really been worried about it, so I don't really mind either way. I'm just not the type of person who likes to be the center of attention (which is why I post here instead of places like EQD or Ponychan, I prefer the smaller atmosphere).

Ah. Well, I just figured that as soon as word of your real name got out, it wouldn't be hard for an internet savvy person to do further research with it and find out where you live and such. Then you would REALLY be the in the center of attention more so than ever. But, if you really are not worried about it....I'll say your name if your curious.

I think it's cool enough for most of us that you come and hang out here as it is.

that said, how much time did you have to put in for animation? A friend of mine majored in film, and I've been thinking he's perfect for a program like that.

While I'm sure it's actually pretty great art and we'd all love it, I don't think we should push Nayuki to post it if he's said he doesn't want to.

What we really ought to be doing is telling him to stop playing those durned vidya gamez and go play outsidedraw some stuff. icon-waspy.gif

My question that I've been thinking of asking Nayuki: did the staff pay attention to this whole stupid Derpy controversy, and, if they did, was their reaction something like "holy cats we do one little shoutout to the fanbase and THIS is the reaction? NEVER AGAIN."? Because that would be my reaction if I were on the MLP staff.

Oh oh oh, may I ask if you're into comics and, if so, what comics/artists do you like? Manga or US.

- what's your favorite cartoon series? What cartoon series would you love to work on?

- I'm pretty sure your secret identity is known to your family and friends. Do they ask you to draw stuff from your cartoons for them? Do they ask for pony sketches? If they do, which is the most requested? (unless it's all about skunk Fu or pucca, lol)

- I wasn't around when you first appeared in the Allspark, before Allsparkle. How'd you get here again?

You're so cool for interacting with us here icon-hotrod.gif

I was checking the internet for fan reactions when the show first started airing. There was no EQD or Ponychan in the beginning, and well, there is only so much 4chan I can handle (/shudder).

That got me wondering, did you read any of the reviews of the show before it aired? If yes, how did you feel about it and were you worried that would carry over after the show aired too?

Strawberry pocky is pretty easy to find in the US (though I guess depends the stores you have). It's avail at all my national chain grocery stores and Super WalMart and Super Target, though I prefer Chocolate Pocky...and I think I'll go eat one right now!

If I figure it out right away, the mystery will be lost and what fun would that be?

Marvel's 'Wizard of Oz' comics, Scottie Young's art is really cool. I occasionally dabble in manga as well.

Oh! I'm familiar with Skottie Young's earlier artwork from that mutant kids series (Academy X). It was a strange but dynamic juxtaposition of cartoony art in a hellish world (the mutants were trapped in Limbo)

I won't pick a favorite. I watch a very large variety of different genres and styles of cartoons/anime. Do note I absolutely detest dubbing. Original language only for me, subtitles is the way to go for foreign cartoons.

Hmm, that's true. I have several favorite shows but I can't zero in on one. I can just remember them fondly.

It wasn't until many months later that I decided to stop lurking and start posting.
