Hi! welcome to the nightmare.. or is it real?
cattservant 7th Sep 2012, 3:04 AM edit delete reply

"As you believe, so shall it be" might well apply in this situation...

Her terminal concerns continue,
Taking up that final fear.
Striving towards the protection
Of the one she holds most dear.

A most proactive Angel has found her it seems.

*claps* well said cat .. well said.

What's the good of having your own reality if you can't control it!*

*(That is a widely applicable question by the way...)
Centcomm 6th Sep 2012, 9:54 PM edit delete reply

A very good point !
Rashala 6th Sep 2012, 10:26 PM edit delete reply

What is mind....I does not matter

What is matter....Never mind.

seriously though God complex much?
Centcomm 6th Sep 2012, 10:28 PM edit delete reply

Not a god .. tisk.. :D
Rashala 7th Sep 2012, 12:10 AM edit delete reply

No I know its really jsut DR whats her name appearign in Tedees matrix as Ada to help prepare her for downloading into her new frame
cattservant 7th Sep 2012, 2:50 AM edit delete reply

Not necessarily. There are several other possibilities with much wider implications!
Centcomm 7th Sep 2012, 4:43 AM edit delete reply

heh - wrong. that much i can say - Dr silver has more important things to do. so thats one thing I will confirm its NOT Dr Silver. Or Tokyo Rose. as Ada would say , Have a bit of faith...

"And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.

rfaramir 11th Sep 2012, 7:42 AM edit delete reply
very interesting. I was assuming it was Dr. Silver in TD's form, too.

And Shakespeare rules the English language!
rfaramir 11th Sep 2012, 7:47 AM edit delete reply
I meant Ada's form, of course.
(I can't edit my reply above, as I had not registered on Comic Fury before. *This* rfaramir is really the same as the above 'rfaramir' even if the system says differently...)

You can always regester so you can comment and vote :D - you dont need a comic to do so :D

She should be thankful her nightmare is looping and not recursive.
Centcomm 7th Sep 2012, 5:37 AM edit delete reply

Thumbs up for that responce.
cattservant 7th Sep 2012, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

But it hasn't made a loop yet...
Maybe it's spiraling into control!
KarToon12 7th Sep 2012, 8:24 AM edit delete reply

Ada will make it all better. :)
Hornet 7th Sep 2012, 9:25 AM edit delete reply
Wait! What? TeeDee appeared to be in a nightmare loop and Ada just broke the nightmare??? Or at least that's my take on this.
Centcomm 7th Sep 2012, 9:40 AM edit delete reply

Ding! got it in one :D
TuxedoComics 7th Sep 2012, 12:53 PM edit delete reply

Oh! Oh my god! Oh my god that looks awesome! The blue shineys make me happy! Great job!
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 12:21 AM edit delete reply

*glee* glad you liked them :D
cattservant 7th Sep 2012, 2:02 PM edit delete reply

Now does TeeDee have to worry about rust?*

*(No, not really... Obviously it's not better to burn up than to rust!)
hoppy 7th Sep 2012, 3:18 PM edit delete reply
they're the same thing at different speeds.
cattservant 7th Sep 2012, 3:39 PM edit delete reply

I was being metaphorical, but you are absolutely correct!

There is an old sayings; Even the mountains are dancing if you can see slowly enough.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 12:22 AM edit delete reply

Most of the componets used in Andriods dont rust as a general rule. they do however burn.
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 4:43 AM edit delete reply

Hooray for slow oxidation then!
velvetsanity 16th May 2017, 5:12 AM edit delete reply

Speaking of rust...
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 6:49 AM edit delete reply

It just occurred to me, Ada has learned the android equivalent of lucid dreaming which may well have it's roots in the "year" of simulated life they originally go through in their development.

The deep question of the moment is what system is she running on?

(We too for that matter...)
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 8:43 AM edit delete reply

Thats a "excellent" question .. what system *IS* she runnning on :D
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 10:24 AM edit delete reply

Let us pause and consider...

Ada's flashed data (supposedly inert) is being error checked for damage, so she is presumably "off".
TeeDee is just turned "on" and having a hot time getting oriented.
Ada appears, apparently out of "nowhere", and not only communicates with TeeDee but also demonstrates total control over the "environment".

A question to consider; Is Dr. Silver's lab equipment in communication with Centcomm's nets, or is a closed system?

If connected, then someone is backing up her backed up back ups. (And probably has been for a very long time.)
If not connected, there must be concealed channels (not necessarily deliberate) that don't register on the instruments.
Or then again there may be a factor at work here that transcends hardware and electrons. (Hummingbirds and Artificial Flowers.)

Whatever is moving here, I'm quite sure that the good Doctor would be rather miffed to find out "something" is going on behind her back and under her nose! (As they say.)

Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 10:37 AM edit delete reply

Some of these I can answer others I cant, the equipment in silvers lab is a "closed" system to prevent data damage, its also electromagneticly isolated. the only connections are speakers and limited sensors for Cent-comm. you guys are getting a insight into something that isnt told to other people , and one of the major reasons being "flashed" is pure terror for most andriods. I can safely say that, "most" of your questions should be answered over the course of time :D
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 10:44 AM edit delete reply

Ah, that eternal inquiry.
What will run out first, Time or Questions?
mushroomisland 8th Sep 2012, 10:15 AM edit delete reply

I really like the dreamy effect and the backgrounds....And those numbers in the background add a mood to it...
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 10:23 AM edit delete reply

Thank you - I played with several effects till I got the look I wanted ..looks like it worked ! :D
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 10:34 AM edit delete reply

Indeed! Is there a subtly faint implication here that TeeDee is a fire spirit and Ada a water spirit?
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 10:43 AM edit delete reply

Interesting take - wondering how you got that conclusion :D TD most assuredly has a "firey" temper.. Marcus and Silver BOTH know that.
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 11:00 AM edit delete reply

Overtly; The contrast between panel 1 and 5.
More indirectly; remembering their attitudes as revealed in-story so far.
Even more indirectly; What has been said about them (especialy TeeDee) in the Comments.
And lastly; Their portraits on the Cast page. TeeDee just looks hot and spiky while Ada looks cool and liquid.

And thank you for 'talking' with me this afternoon. My Gray-Matter definitely needs stirring up today!
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 11:20 AM edit delete reply

Going to be updating the cast page again soon- fixing some pics and adding some info... and your very welcome!
Rashala 8th Sep 2012, 1:54 PM edit delete reply

Hmmm Well I think another AI may have touched on this *points up * effect and being Flashed.

GLADOS. She mentiones she had an emergency backup feature taht flash saved the last moments of her life like an emergency black box to review the cause of a system failure.....and in it she was Aware and conscious.....and reliving her death over and over ..and over again..

I wonder if this is why most Androids and AIs here Fear Flashing thier memory...because they are forced to relive whatever caused them to be offlined over and over again til they are finally uploaded to a new frame.

Then there is teh BAttlestar galactica Cylon ressurection tech side effect. As where The cylon is saved at moment of death and when put into a new body they are forced Painfuly to relive the moment and then awaken gasping and disoriented and scared likely half to death as they regain awareness a nano second later mentally after dieing.

Either one of these ways if true I could understand a reluctance to fear of doign so I mean.....either way would be akin to a living/unliving unending *from the Ai's perspective* Hell.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 2:16 PM edit delete reply

well the Q-drive has 3 modes - due to power useage COPY that takes all the data from the brain and processing and then overheats and "Sterilizes" the brain - this is a copy protection catch, mode 2 "Storage" where it only uses a micro amount of power to keep everything intact .. and "dump mode" what you are seeing here is "dump mode" however TDs "mind" is active. during this mode. obviously .. why Ada is here .. well thats a mystery
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 4:01 PM edit delete reply

Is having the android's mind 'active' during 'dump mode' an unfortunate but accepted part of a critical 'emergency procedure', or is this an abnormal situation in TeeDee's case?
She was very reluctant to put herself into 'back up mode' until she accounted for Ada. So maybe she was still somewhat 'awake' when she was flashed. (If that's a possibility?)

P.S. You're not being a breeze amongst the rose canes with all this lovely technical detail you are being so kind as to share, are you?
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

im trying to aviod spoilers :D TD failed to place herself in "back-up" mode bsaicly a "sleep-state" that helps to prevent trama. the dump is not possable to prevent once the q-drive is connected and the switch thrown - its pretty much out of both partys hands. but its accepted procedure to go into "back-up mode" ...
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 5:00 PM edit delete reply

Well that very nicely accounts for half of the current situation, thank you.

(Good to see that you are having an exciting and fun-filled weekend too.
We <tCaI> are having a wild tuna and root beer party tonight!)
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 2:18 PM edit delete reply

yep im "very" familar with the BSG - reboot cylon "resurection" process.. and they are much the same - with a few minor diffrences..
Rashala 8th Sep 2012, 5:37 PM edit delete reply

one of those being they do not wake up screaming naked in a white viscous mineraloiish liquid in a room surrounded around copies of themselves?
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 5:52 PM edit delete reply

except for the screaming .. yes..
m4ch43r 11th Sep 2012, 8:34 AM edit delete reply

Woohoo! BSG!

Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 8:19 PM edit delete reply

hehe actually its more like checking a error with a scanner but same thing .. and yeah gold go go boots .. with hydralics :D
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 8:50 PM edit delete reply

Whilst reclining in my bed here deep in the night, a Thought occurred.
How did it happen that Dolly and Minx met and became good friends? On the face of it, it does seem somewhat unlikely.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2012, 9:43 PM edit delete reply

im actually working on that little tale :D
maybe a memory shards story..
cattservant 8th Sep 2012, 10:12 PM edit delete reply

Something to put on the 'anticipate' list!
Oldarmourer 14th Jun 2019, 9:06 AM edit delete reply
Speaking from the 'future' on a reread and thinking this isn't a 'spoiler' for new readers, this still isn't completely explained and may take a looonnnggg time to be, if ever but I think it may well be a greater part of the story long after this date.

One has to consider what 'sparked' actually means.

Is it receiving the 'spark of life' we all have that sets us apart from rocks or clocks ?

Remember how Ada reacted to their ship coming under attack, and what's going on now...

Not to get too spiritual, we all have our own personal beliefs, but I sort of think something is going on here that's far beyond 1's and 0's ;)
