Handles, Flavors and more of Ms. Rose than we ever knew existed too!

Dear Ms.Cent-Comm, you could have used kittens and totally upstaged Ms. Rose!

AI, AI, AI AI!!!

Affirmative! Anyone with acceptable acquisitional abilities could acquire an adequate accounting of the action after appreciating todays artwork. All right?
Centcomm 8th Jul 2012, 10:14 AM edit delete reply

wow .. thats .. Amazing. *giggles*

You have just invented my favorite new game!

Also, I don't think I can trust a humanoid city AI interface that is lacking genitals or other anatomy vital to the human experience.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2012, 8:50 AM edit delete reply

You can thank Miss Rose for that idea.

Well she didnt say she was lacking.. just not "functional" she really wouldnt need them. not to mention her being "female" is a human contrivance. Shes really nither. and, she really never pretends to "be" human note her actions in the Briefing...
CyberSkull 8th Jul 2012, 9:02 AM edit delete reply

If any bits aren't functional, then you really don't have them. :p
Centcomm 8th Jul 2012, 9:14 AM edit delete reply

hehe - theres also a reason Cents Doll is located in the tech pages under "robotics" rather than andriod.. :D
cattservant 8th Jul 2012, 9:38 AM edit delete reply

@CyberSkull: Never needed to update the 'starter kit'. Or; If it's not broken, don't fix it!
cattservant 8th Jul 2012, 12:26 PM edit delete reply

Briefing: Do you refer to Pages 662-677?
Centcomm 8th Jul 2012, 12:31 PM edit delete reply

Yep, thats it.

It seems to me that Cent can and does experience some degree of emotions (when she doesn't turn them off). So she should at least be somewhat familiar with THAT aspect of the human / android experience. But I would think A.I.S. in charge of a megatropolis like New Troy would benefit from understanding humans and androids on a deep level. That kind of understanding might make for a better leader and caretaker, no?

So why is it that she "really wouldnt need them"? Are her priorities and duties too important to get distracted by anything remotely resembling a social life?

Then again, I am reminded of how deeply the loss of Fallon affected Calli. A drunk and very mopy / reclusive Cent-Comm might cause all sorts of problems for New Troy. (The lifespans of humans and androids must seem very brief to her.) Nor would it help to have a Cent "addicted" to sensations, as Connie said some androids can become.

I'm just wondering how much of the human experience Cent picks up on via observation. But I'd think there are some things that one has to experience first hand to truly understand or appreciate.

Nice recap. But in the last three panels, I learned more about Cent-Comm and Tokyo Rose than I really wanted to know...
Centcomm 8th Jul 2012, 12:31 PM edit delete reply

*snickers* well this *is* a 4th wall strip.
cattservant 8th Jul 2012, 10:14 AM edit delete reply

Considering the nature of AIs; Actually, when you think about it, it's not surprising that many of the technical and social aspects are very static. The same 'hands' have been on the throttle for a millennium! Only logical innovations need apply! We know Cent-Comm has deep goals in mind, but certainly they are long term and 'logical' in origin.
Marcus Ramesy 8th Jul 2012, 1:42 PM edit delete reply

it looks like she is playing a game of super mario brothers.... amusing... as for cent having genitals....... *chuckle* she may be anatomicaly correct... in some cases.... but... far from fully functional...
CyberSkull 8th Jul 2012, 3:21 PM edit delete reply

I was thinking, you should really add a nice favicon for this and Luna Star.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2012, 7:02 PM edit delete reply

I have NO idea how to do that :D
CyberSkull 9th Jul 2012, 10:34 AM edit delete reply

Insert into the head:
<link rel="icon" "href="favicon.extension" size="16" />

All it needs to be is a 16x16 image for most browsers. PNG will work on anything, ICO has portability issues.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2012, 10:40 AM edit delete reply

so do i upload the image to my image bay and - how does it know where to get the image?
Centcomm 9th Jul 2012, 10:51 AM edit delete reply

ok altered the layout but its not showing up so i proably goofed it ((( <link rel="" "href="favicon.extension" size="16" /> )))
Centcomm 9th Jul 2012, 10:57 AM edit delete reply

nm got it to work ! yay!

I've been mainlining this and I still needed a recap, so It think this was a good idea here. But beyond that I really like how you did it... very funny and enjoyable to read. Rose is rapidly becoming one of my favorite characters.
Centcomm 25th Jul 2015, 8:09 PM edit delete reply

thanks .. She is a character ill give rose that!
jamie59 25th Jul 2015, 7:13 PM edit delete reply

I thought Amcomm (Centcomm)'s body was a pleasuredroid body so working everything.
Centcomm 25th Jul 2015, 8:09 PM edit delete reply

Originally it was.. However sense she is now in total control of her own dolls she generally leaves those out as unneeded.. :D
jamie59 29th Jul 2015, 7:31 PM edit delete reply

Big bad AI never has an itch to scratch.
GhostRider 27th Oct 2015, 4:42 PM edit delete reply
Just curious, are CentComm's and Roses personality based on you and "Rose"?
Centcomm 27th Oct 2015, 5:03 PM edit delete reply

Maybe a little .. Rose is defiantly that snarky :D
antrik 5th Oct 2016, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
Isn't this a bit spoilery? I don't remember it having been mentioned in-story yet that Acantha is only Lord Headcase's half-sister; Ceci hasn't really shown her secretly dangerous side just yet; and that thing about genitals... Though admittedly I don't think I got the significance at that time :-)
Oldarmourer 14th Jun 2019, 5:03 AM edit delete reply
These are priceless, I laugh every time I read them, maybe add one for every hundredth episode ? but I thought Cent-comm's dolls were sex-bot frames ? sort of defeats the purpose having them 'non functional' well... 'limited functionality' ;)
