That is all. Go back to your lives, citizens.
Two new pieces of fanart this week, both from Neko of Doom. First a brilliant headshot of Lothar. Second another brilliant headshot, but of Rogue this time. Bloody hell we have a load of fanart 0.o.
Well now I’ve got some really stupid invention to rant about this week, go to this website to see this:
THE ORBITOUCH KEYLESS KEYBOARD!
First of all, you can’t call it a fucking keyboard if it dosen’t have any keys. Thats what a keyboard is. It is a board, with keys on it, ergo KEYBOARD. You don’t call a plank of wood a skateboard until you bung some wheels on it, do you?
Right, now you see those two dome things on the “keyboard”? You make numbers and letters by sliding them into different postions. You can watch a demo of how it works here. Now the thing is, thats 26 different movement combinations you have to memorise for each letter, then you’ve got to memorise then numbers as well, THEN the various combinations for symbols such as @ and * and so forth. Oh and obviously you need to remember slightly different letter combinations for doing captial letters. Now I don’t care how smart you are, that’s gonna take a while to learn and memorise. Oh and all the bloody punctuation marks as well. I don’t see anything on the actual device it self that reminds you of each symbols combination, so you have to memorise it all. At least on a keyboard the fucking “W” key say’s “W” on it so you know what the hell it does.
Also the fact that no way in hell is going to be very fast. I think the world record for typing speed on a keyboard is about 150 words a minute or something (I don’t know for certain and frankly don’t care). I don’t see anyone getting up to that sort of speed on this thing.
And what about the various buttom combinations you do on a keyboard? Such as “Control+Alt+Delete” or “Alt+169″ to get the copyright symbol (©). How the hell do you do those on this thing?
According to the website “The orbiTouch has an integrated mouse, so once you’ve mastered the layout, it’s even easier to use than a traditional keyboard.” I don’t see any damn mouse for a start, and how the hell are you gonna use the mouse when your moving the giant black tit’s to write a letter to your local council. Explaining why you haven’t paid you fucking taxes cos you spent £369 (that’s $695 for you Americans, or 545 Euros for people in continental Europe) on this massive pile of shite? And yes those are the prices taken from the website.
The only people I see being able to use this damn thing at all are porn stars. God knows they have the expierience of moving massive plastic tit’s around.
The thing is supposed to help against Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other such disabilites. Yeah so do other things, except they don’t look like you killed a hokkerm then ripped off her chest, just to play with her breasts in front of the damn computer.
This does bring an interesting idea into my head, why stop at the keyless keyboard? How about a mouseless mouse? A speakerless speaker. Or how about the super duper hi-tech COMPUTERLESS COMPUTER! Which I have a picture of right here:
Eh, comic ain’t done. Teh busy carried on this week. Check back tomorrow. Sorry, n’ stuff, but can’t be helped. Final projects and whatnot. That’s all done now though, and I’m finished *flumps* Woo, thank the gods. There’s a good chance I’ll be doing 2 comics a week over summer. Not right away though, I just want a week or two to screw around, play some games and generally be lazier than usual ^__^ So we’ll let you know about that. I’m also considering taking commissions. I have yet to establish any details, but if that’s something you might be interested in, let me know, okay?
Hrm, what the hell, I may as well have a go at this. I managed to compress my animation down to 8.24MB. I dunno what this will do to my Homestead bandwidth… But if you’re interested in finding out what the hell that idle git Virus has been doing instead of bringing you your comic, take a looksee (Quicktime movie, right click save as). There’s several flaws that I never got around to fixing and/or didn’t notice until after rendering, but all in all it turned out okay, I guess. That stuff takes forever to do though. I’m hoping it will get faster and more efficient with practice. I’m also hoping we’re finished with that piece of crap Cinema 4D. Aside from being a basic, dumbed down beginners program to begin with, the bloody thing won’t let me use my graphics tablet, I have to use a damnable mouse. A mouse may arguably be a more intuitive input device in a modeling environment, but no bugger ever got carpal tunnel from using a stylus pen, I can tell you.
See ya later then, I’ll be back with the comic.
If anyone here is a fan of “Bonus Time Comics”, yes I’m talking to both of you. You may want to go here to learn some truth’s about the racist cunt who creates it.
Well onto my usual brand of news post bullshit now. Last week I passed my driving test, and it’s cool as I;m out driving by myself now. Now I got to know, do people forget tod rive after their tests?
I’ve seen people cut across 3 lanes of traffic on a 70 MPH motorway, without signalling and going at at least 90. People WHO BLOCK OF THE FUCKING ROAD IN A PARKING AREA MAKING YOU GO AROUND THEM, THEN BEEPING YOU AS YOU DO IT. Seriously, they’re creating the obstruction, forcing me to drive across the empty parking space’s to exit, and somehow they think they have the right to fucking honk their fucking horn at me? LOVE THE LOGIC STEPHEN HAWKING. And no it was not Stephen Hawking who I had to drive past. Though that’d be sweet, he probably has some sort of giant robot mech car that eat’s smaller, less intelligent cars. And a cool robot voice.
Also I have discovered that the rules of the road do not apply to Taxi drivers. They can go through red lights, or if they do stop they go right over the line or, turn corners in the wrong lanes, do U-Turns where ever the hell they want, never have to signal, cause road obstructions, and generally do whatever the fuck they feel like. Are these men’s some sort of Driving God’s that don’t have to obey the rules because they are just for us mere mortals? More likely they’re just pricks.
Oh and “Combine Harvester” by The Wurzels is THE BEST SONG IN ALL CREATION!
Busy. Shade it later. Bah.
Now back to work. Bah.
New week, new comic. The cycle continues.
Got some new awesome fanart this week from Ty of Seed Of Judgement. He has given us the most anotomically correct Rogue picture, EVER. Christ if it was any MORE anatomically correct…well I’d be quite scared, frankly. Thanks Ty.
In other new’s I FINALLY PASSED MY FUCKING DRIVING TEST TODAY! FUCK YES! This was the fourth time I took it and I finally passed the bloody thing, I can now drive by myself on British roads legally. To demonstrate how nervous I was, lemme put it this way. The Instructor had to wind the window down after five minutes because I was sweating so much the windows had steamed up. And as most people who know me will tell you, I don’t get nervous very easily.
Right, as you may or may not know, one of our affiliates ROTDN is shutting down, because their webmaster is retiring. However most of the sites staff are continuing on, and they are looking for new blood. So if you wish to start a comic and want to work with some exprienced authors, go to this forum topic to learn more about the situation and contact information.
Well, that’s enough talk from me this week. Cya later.
And thus begins our second story arc, and no we won’t be staying in the house all the way through this one, so don’t worry :p.
Also a little thank you to Casey and Adrienne Young of AlterMeta for their linkage, that’s another cool webcomic I read thinking we’re funny. I really need to get around to updating our link’s section, since I read like 30 Bajillion webcomics everyday. I’ll probably get around to updating it later today.
Well because I was bored, and instead of typing an actual update, I made something extra for you guy’s. Something I’ve dubbed “Halo Funnies”, and it’s not an attempt to get more traffic to the site. If I wanted that I’d put stuff like SEX, HENTAI, and LESBIANS in the newspost. Enjoy.
Ok, time for me to bugger off, see ya later.
