Well, she is relenting awfully quick... Marcus really knows her well...

TeeDee is doing something that I can't: carrying on with a battle while being distracted by someone talking to me. Multitasking to the next level!

Can synthbrains be neurodivergent? My brother has ADD and games best with music playing, a video running, and someone to talk to o.0

By direct observation here, I'd say yes. Beyond that, I can't speak to anyone else's ability; clearly, your brother has an ability that I lack. :)

I really don't have any option except to play and talk at the same time, nobody seems to care what I'm doing and everything needs to be discussed 'right now'...oh, well, it teaches multi-tasking...
It is however, a challenge taking on a dragon and holding the phone at the same time...I'm going to get one of these, if they still make them.

Which 'these' do you mean? A shoulder holder, yes. Only now it looks more like one of those Bob Dillon style harmonica holders so it holds your cell phone in front of your face. If you mean the hand held device that's only a telephone, it's on the endangered species list. Good luck.

I keep an 'old fashioned' landline by my desk, everyone should have one wired phone because when the power goes out and the wireless ones stop working and the chargers don't work, the ancient tech still works because the power to run it comes down the wires along with the signal and not from a battery...companies are required by regulation to maintain generators at local offices to keep the sytem up, phones don't use a lot of power so it's fairly easy to keep the network up, even easier since a lot of people don't connect to it.

Well that's the real trick, isn't it? Sure I can mindlessly explore around while having a conversation. That's a little different than a boss battle, or taking on mobs en masse. I can't keep enough concentration on both at once.

Oh, now that's not suspicious!

Funny thing about bluetooth...both the sending and receiving units have to have power...

"You make it sound like all I ever want to do is smash shit up."

That is completely unfair. He in no way implied that that was *all* you ever want to do... only that it is your *favorite* thing to do.

(And he's absolutely right.)

Starfuck. Cuz stars give the hottest sex.
Oldarmourer 17th Oct 2021, 4:00 PM edit delete reply

TeeDee's not so crazy about the sex part but she does love handing out a good bootfucking...
Don B 13th Oct 2021, 4:59 PM edit delete reply
I haven't known TeeDee as long as Marcus but "Starfuck" totally sounds like something she would come up with. Considering some of the things she's come out with in past conversations I would be more like "Is her game handle Starfuck? Of course it is 'cause TeeDee."

If it was Ada I would be very much "...What? Did she lose a bet or something?"
Oldarmourer 13th Oct 2021, 6:27 PM edit delete reply
With a LunaComm password of 'butterfly50' you have to wonder just how paranoid she is about steering people in the wrong direction...
Rashala 13th Oct 2021, 11:38 PM edit delete reply

Interesting pilot name is all I am gonna say and leave it at thar
Oldarmourer 14th Oct 2021, 3:35 PM edit delete reply
Will it be Commander Ada-ma or Lt. Cornholio (Apollo) ?
New series or original series ? I vote for the original one, just because :)
Oldarmourer 16th Oct 2021, 9:19 AM edit delete reply
and so the roundup of the team begins...any bets as to who the final members will be ?

I'm going with
Ada and TeeDee
A White Angel or two to keep an eye on Feelie and Samanta..
My bets are on GiGi and Cella
Doc Silver is out of the question but I'd bet she has a nice prototype battledroid to drop SKEETER into ;)
Logrim and maybe Dusty but likely not, she's not a combatant

and you know TR's going to slip an operative in somewhere...
Probably Kyle since he's the cybernetics wizard and they'll need one

Ten to twelve makes a good sized team, this is ten, others might be added

robnot 17th Oct 2021, 7:08 AM edit delete reply
GiGi is a black angel,. tho adding her as a "white" angel would not be out of Pinkys MO
Oldarmourer 17th Oct 2021, 8:56 AM edit delete reply
White, Black, maybe Centy's got a Plaid Angel kicking around for those undefined missions ;)
Centcomm 19th Oct 2021, 5:44 PM edit delete reply

plaid... have you been looking at my files...
Oldarmourer 19th Oct 2021, 7:26 PM edit delete reply
just the 201 have issues, and backissues of some I thought were discontinued...I like it :)
Oldarmourer 17th Oct 2021, 12:18 PM edit delete reply

Been awhile since I offended everyone's ears...better make up for that.
One line in this one just jumped out at me when the tune showed up in the playlist and I thought it suited TeeDee to a T, the rest took five minutes, it shows...

Nice touch showing the radiators in the nose of her ship glowing when she shoots. Thanks, Cent :)

As usual, follow the link to get the tune in your head first, then follow the bouncing ball...and sing along with Glitch ;)

It's 70's Canadian Glam Rock at it's finest and was big up here but maybe not so much everywhere else, I think 'Armageddon' hit the charts down south but I'm saving that one for later, unless someone with more skills beats me to it ;)
Trivia: I interviewed the band on radio once back in the late 80's when the stadium shows were over and they were doing small gigs again, I always liked their style for some reason...

Starfuck's theme

Feelin' right in a nice dogfight
Just to relax you see
Bypass training mode
Then I lock and load, in my starship sleek and mean
Got so damned tired and uninspired
Savin' kids in foreign lands
It's a giant leap for S&R
But it's more than I can stand

I'm a VR superstar
Watch out for Starfuck she's my avatar
I'm about to punt these c*nts to Mars
I'm a VR superstar

These pirates all go crazy
When I switch to rock 'n' roll
But I got sold out in advance
Marcus has a lot of gall
His calls, they ping like meteorites
In my headset and they break the mood
Just give me five to knock these guys dead
Then I'll come and play your favourite tunes

I'm a VR superstar
My guns don't overheat they radiate IR
My vacations don't get very far
I'm Starfucked even in VR
