Ada's poor Boyfriend.......
..they best make it through and have a teary reunion.

*also attmepts to Hack Centcomms pink bot with a sub routine so that is responds with a nonsensical answer if the phrase ...Are you pondering what I am pondering pinky* is said to her*
Centcomm 25th Oct 2012, 9:11 PM edit delete reply

now you know why he hasnt been a issue...
glares at his attmempt to hack her >_<
Rashala 25th Oct 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

Give Centcomma Whaaat look as he tries to slip the subroutine into the Pink bot*

and yeah Ada May REALLY have issue with that......unless...she lost all memory of him....
Centcomm 25th Oct 2012, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

we shall see Monday ! :D

** edit forgot it was friday...
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

What with Ada's fancy new body, there may not be too many tears involved!
Centcomm 25th Oct 2012, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

HEE! *insert blush here*
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 9:22 PM edit delete reply

As long as it's only a blush...
Rashala 25th Oct 2012, 10:13 PM edit delete reply

forget a blush I want full on tears running into each others arms and kissing passionately whil TD turns and makes hurking noises ..

Til I walk up grab her in a fierce kiss and just leave her stunned to kill me.....instantly and give marcus then you better bring her back intact look
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 10:19 PM edit delete reply

What! Were you a male preying mantis in some of your past lives?
Rashala 25th Oct 2012, 10:28 PM edit delete reply

A kamakazi lemming but thats BESIDES THE POINT HERE!!!
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

Ah, an appreciator of edges...
More power to to you!
Rashala 25th Oct 2012, 10:41 PM edit delete reply

*Test Subroutine* Are you pondering what I am pondering pinky?
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

You know the most basic underlying difference between android and human is probably going to turn out to be a sense of humor.

(World Domination?)
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 9:08 PM edit delete reply

Ada might have an issue with that too...

TeeDee will probably like being invisible.
Centcomm 25th Oct 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

hehe well they arent invisable.. they just put of a "im human" signal. to fool casual detectors.
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 10:39 PM edit delete reply

Is this only a digital signal, or are there analog components to the system too?
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 9:59 AM edit delete reply

thats classified ( ie we havent worked out the details on how it works ) eye-roll!
cattservant 26th Oct 2012, 11:02 AM edit delete reply

You'd probably need a sweat and body oder dispenser and a faux flatulence dispersal device. And skin flakes with human DNA traces too.

(I can see a great opportunity for New Troy's retired population to contribute to the war effort!)
dpallee 25th Oct 2012, 9:13 PM edit delete reply

It's that 2 percent we're worried about.
Centcomm 25th Oct 2012, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

she accounted for that.. "kill him" was a pretty solid back up plan.
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 9:20 PM edit delete reply

Woo! Maybe she covets Mr. Black's antique freighter?
Centcomm 25th Oct 2012, 9:25 PM edit delete reply

right.. she would sell it for scrap. :P
cattservant 25th Oct 2012, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

Well if this little expedition doesn't come off, they will be needing any extra scrap for the war effort anyway!
mushroomisland 25th Oct 2012, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

Huh. Lambert wouldn't exactly betray...Unless another better plan arose. Well for him. So the concern should be to just keep him happy I guess.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 7:10 AM edit delete reply

It all depends on the profit margin ... and possable losses.
Draginbeard 25th Oct 2012, 10:27 PM edit delete reply

Talk, Talk, Talk, Talk....I want to see TeeDee blow stuff up! =D

I think strapping a bomb to the kitchen sink and dropping it form orbit as they make their get away ought to be worth a laugh!
Rashala 25th Oct 2012, 10:29 PM edit delete reply

Kitchen sink....NAH too clean ....strap it to a construction site Porta-potty and drop THAT from orbit Muuuuuch better
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 7:09 AM edit delete reply

heh heh heh - be careful what you wish for Oh mighty Draginbeard :D
Death2Bravo 26th Oct 2012, 2:18 AM edit delete reply

Makes perfect sense from a mission profile point of view. Just being marked as destroyed before I've even left is not comforting. Can you say expendable?
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 7:11 AM edit delete reply

Oh yes .. I think we can :D
LooeyQ 26th Oct 2012, 6:26 AM edit delete reply

Ohh the old faking a death. The world is your playground when you're not alive. Like missing school when you're not actually sick, but on a much grander level.

On another note, I'd been meaning to say this about your comic for a while but never did, adn that is, I'm truly fasinated by the amount of lore your story holds! So much detail in the characters and locations and just the way everything works well as not just a comic but as a whole other world! That's something I hope to achieve with Mad dog. One day I want Ollieville to feel like a small town to readers that everyone recognizes locations and characters, like Springfield in the Simpsons! :D
Great job all around!
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 7:14 AM edit delete reply

Thank you looeyQ! thats the best compliment I can hope for.

Time.. lots of time. was spent in developing and putting things togather. some of the comcepts didnt pan out .. others well they kinda took on a life of there own. creating a living breathing world is the goal of every person that deviates from the modern setting. its rules .. looks, places.. ect I had a lot of input from a lot of cool people over the years.
LooeyQ 26th Oct 2012, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

Very cool! yeah, I think rules are really important to a story, it keeps the "flow" going, and if you break the rules you break the flow. It's awesome how characters and stories are a life of there own. Eventually you don't even have to write lines, because you just know what "that character" would say in any particular situation! :D
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

Yep - I kinda got in the habit of being able to "respond" to posts "in charcter for just about any of the various cast memebers - not sure your familar with it but role playing games are a big part of how DC got fleshed out. me and marcus often have discussions about that. same with me and Rose - we know the quirks and little details sometimes down to wha color they prefer . and morning routines :D its kinda wierd but it makes lines really easy.
creamygnome 26th Oct 2012, 7:20 AM edit delete reply

Every time I see Cent I fall more and more in love with her. I don't care if she's just some AI!
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 7:27 AM edit delete reply

O_O Cent? whoa .. Ok thats a new one. COOL :D
creamygnome 26th Oct 2012, 8:10 AM edit delete reply

I guess I have a weakness for shortish girl models with pink hair? Digging the latest outfit too.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 8:28 AM edit delete reply

hee! :D at least someone likes her thats rare!
Marcus Ramesy 26th Oct 2012, 11:08 AM edit delete reply

oh come now.. .she isnt that unlikeable.. she has her charms.....

hey wait .. what? O_O
creamygnome 26th Oct 2012, 8:54 PM edit delete reply

Put in a good word for me. I don't know what AIS's like to do in their free time, though. Maybe I could take her out for some mini-golf and ice cream?
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 8:58 PM edit delete reply

*blinks* do I get a say here? looks innocent.
creamygnome 26th Oct 2012, 9:03 PM edit delete reply

I suppose you could pick the ice cream place.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

dot dot dot.. You do know I dont eat .. right?
creamygnome 26th Oct 2012, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

The entertaining part of the date is watching me eat a bunch of ice cream after beating me at mini-golf.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 9:33 PM edit delete reply

ah.. who says ill beat you at mini golf .. I may not be any good at it.:P and watching you devour ice cream "would" be amusing XD
Marcus Ramesy 26th Oct 2012, 11:21 PM edit delete reply

well.. out of the 3457 games of chess we have played I have won 1112 of those games... I can tell you that she enjoys games of strategy.. one of the favorites to dust of is "global thermal nuclear war"

Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 11:27 PM edit delete reply

*looks blank* would... you .. like... to .. play.. A ... game.

*dies laughing.
cattservant 26th Oct 2012, 11:18 AM edit delete reply

She has a romantic persona too!*

*(Which is currently off in Joleet having an adventure.)
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 12:41 PM edit delete reply

Actually .. CeCi ( if thats who you are refering to ) is no longer acting like Cent-comm shes now diverging due to enviromental factors.
cattservant 26th Oct 2012, 1:43 PM edit delete reply

CeCi is having opportunities that Cent-comm will never have a chance to!
Is it safe to assume there will be a thorough debriefing when CeCi comes home?
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 2:03 PM edit delete reply

yes it is :D
cattservant 26th Oct 2012, 2:10 PM edit delete reply

I imagine there would be all kinds of juicy details in a memory download!*

*(If that's what it's called. At any rate they wouldn't sit around and chat over tea and cakes.)
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 2:25 PM edit delete reply

nope .. that they wouldnt.
Dragonrider 26th Oct 2012, 5:26 PM edit delete reply

@Rashala don't know about construction site port-a-potty dropped from orbit, but I do know about on that was strapped to the materials elevator on the 59th floor of a building under construction and express dropped to the ground when someone was in it. Poor guy had to be hosed off with a fire hose and rode home in the back of a pickup truck, never came back for his pay check either.
Now then Mistress of Mayhem; about those ID's being reactivated? Currently the ladies can't be traced back to anyplace and are totally deniable assetts, Centcomm isn't above having plan KTG (Kill The Girls) in place and she is just low life enough to have given our Free Trader Mercenary the deactivation and destruction codes for both of them to be used at an advantageous time and place. I do sense a plot within a plot. Not to mention she is looking for an excuse to remove New Rome once and forever. If the last of the Helios line happens to die with Rome she has no more worries about being deactivated ever. She never has let that control fact slip to her current maintenance person.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 5:34 PM edit delete reply

Wow .. just Wow *scribbles notes* you ... are.. evil. I think I love you. *swoon* XD
cattservant 27th Oct 2012, 2:30 AM edit delete reply

And if Cent-comm has complete recordings of Ada and TeeDee, she can upload those into new bodies when they don't come back and it will be Nova Roma, what Nova Roma?
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 7:22 AM edit delete reply

actually cent doesnt - when a q-drive copys a matrix its single copy / erase this may sound kind of dumb but with NTAS restrictionss ( see tech pages ) only one copy of a andriod can be active or on any system when silver moved the matrix from the q-drive to thwe new body the old q-drive was erased and distroyed. this may sound silly but New Troy actually has laws about multiple copys of the same Matrix when it comes to sentient Andriods.
cattservant 27th Oct 2012, 9:19 AM edit delete reply

Guess they don't want to get stepped on by an elephant they didn't see coming!
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 12:18 PM edit delete reply

hehe - its actually part of the NO CLONEING of andriod laws on New Troys books
however there are times this is broken for one reason or another - however once the matrix goes "live" its no longer a perfect copy. Dr Silver followed Proper NTAS protocol when she reloaded TD and ADA the q-drives also have Anti-copy and Anti-tamper devices built in.
cattservant 27th Oct 2012, 2:07 PM edit delete reply

I wonder if a situation like "the Tachikomas" would work with a small group (squad) of androids.
It is more or less what Cent-comm does with her robots.
(I think...)
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 2:14 PM edit delete reply

if you mean the Dolls they really dont have a full on AI the positronic matrix allows for some individual action but has no persona.
cattservant 27th Oct 2012, 2:22 PM edit delete reply

I just realized* that the Cent-comm's information flow would be mostly from the periphery to the center.

*(Just woke up from a gray day nap.
Cat habits!)
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 2:26 PM edit delete reply

yep you are quite correct :D like a spiders web :D
cattservant 27th Oct 2012, 2:42 PM edit delete reply

I bet Shelob* is one of her metaphysical ancestors...

*(Charlotte too.)
Dragonrider 26th Oct 2012, 5:50 PM edit delete reply

I can take no credit Mistress, I owe it all to the upbringing by my psychotic Mother which was later fine tuned by my Uncle Sammy. Work for me and tour the world, meet foreign exotic people, see exotic foreign places. Kill the people and blow up the places.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 5:56 PM edit delete reply

Mmmm - what branch if I may ask ?

is it realated to this? Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group

I dont know the SOG anacromym
Dragonrider 26th Oct 2012, 6:10 PM edit delete reply

Special Ops Group
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

Ahhh ok that makes more sense :D thats awesome :D can always use military advisors to tell me when im screwing up :D
Dragonrider 26th Oct 2012, 6:21 PM edit delete reply

So far just glad you weren't in charge of some of the tunnel groups we ran across. BTW what kind of Military does New Troy have? They have at least one Major however hoping he's not Major Catastrophe he was my opposite number in the ground pounders.
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 6:31 PM edit delete reply

New Troy has a standing Military of mostly robotic drones. above them are andriod "enlisted" and "staff" Humans occupy officer ranks period. and its actually rare for a human to want to be a combat op or be good enough to be one Marcus is both. above the basic officers are the generals who are in Mil-sec offices some are in cryo while being hooked into the active net.

The really scary ones are INT-SEC .. like Cella shes a "White Angel" that makes her pretty much a MIB for rank
Rashala 26th Oct 2012, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

And Ceci is a black angel or the. Carrot disguised big stick*
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 9:36 PM edit delete reply

also known as "A ace in the hole" :D
Rashala 26th Oct 2012, 9:43 PM edit delete reply

Yeah but a cute one. with mommy issues......And newness to well physical sensations.

*while talking checks to see if his password cracker has gotten into those Old level black Files on one of Centy's past avatar bodies....the humanity experience one*
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 9:45 PM edit delete reply

well she IS designed to mimic a "pleasure-model" so a lot of her "emotional" reactions is totally undersatndable. the "mommy issue" was needed to make sure she remained focused.. but that could have been overset .. she was programmed very quickly.
Rashala 26th Oct 2012, 10:15 PM edit delete reply


Technically Tedee is an A...size. Ceci si more of a C-D size....

Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 10:20 PM edit delete reply

yes.. Ceci is a large C cupsize while Teedee is a small A .. what that has to do with anything , I have no clue >_< LOL
Rashala 26th Oct 2012, 11:45 PM edit delete reply

*points to the A Ace Statment Centy made reguarding Ceci. SO it shoudl be C ace int he hole
Rashala 26th Oct 2012, 11:49 PM edit delete reply

Hey centy?

hows this for A song Td and marcus may hace had in training

SpecOps, SpecOps, where have you been?

Dropped into hell and back again!
When I die please bury me deep!
Place an Myrmidon PPC down by my feet!
Don't cry for me, don't shed no tear!
Just pack my box with SpecOps gear!
Cuz one early morning 'bout zero-five!
The ground will rumble, there'll be ightning in the sky!
Don't you worry, don't come undone
It's just my ghost headed out on a SpecOps run!
Rashala 26th Oct 2012, 11:50 PM edit delete reply

And yes it is A modified version of somethign else :)
Centcomm 26th Oct 2012, 11:54 PM edit delete reply

Oh ... my.. thats fantastic Rashala .. whats the music ?
Rashala 27th Oct 2012, 12:08 AM edit delete reply

Its the Drill cadence for the Helljumpers from the Halo universe. An elite unit who Drop from orbit into battle in special pods....thier motto is Feet first into hell, cause of the firey nature of thier atmosphereic entry.

I swapped out SpecOps for helljumper and PPC for MA5B. So jsut imagine it sung at a Marine corp training march cadence
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 12:19 AM edit delete reply

Hee! thats so cool thank you ! I showed it to rose she liked it too .
wait till marcus sees it!
Rashala 27th Oct 2012, 12:20 AM edit delete reply

Np. And like I said....I can easily see TD and MArcus doing that *points to the riding a pod from orbit into a battlefield*
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 12:25 AM edit delete reply

actually .. you will probably see something like that on here :D
velvetsanity 16th May 2017, 2:09 PM edit delete reply

The version in Halo is actually based on (or at least inspired by) a real cadence.

Airborne ranger, airborne ranger, where have you been?
Around the world and back again
cattservant 27th Oct 2012, 2:24 AM edit delete reply

Was thinking about the page title.
TeeDee doesn't even notice that she's not competing does she?
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 8:37 AM edit delete reply

heh nope.. the page title refers to Ada..
Dragonrider 27th Oct 2012, 4:57 AM edit delete reply
HEY!!!! @Rashala drop the reference to Naval Infantry when referring to SOG Units. SOG is the Elite of the Elite makes those swabbies with pop guns look like a Sunday School picnic.
Rashala 27th Oct 2012, 1:31 PM edit delete reply

@dragonrider. No offense but one squad of US Marines is a SOG unit here And lets not get into a flame war okay? I can imagine Centcomm would prefer we all just get along and play nice and not get into a brawl in the dirt.
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 1:34 PM edit delete reply

That would be correct ,... please no flame wars .. id hate to delete comments.
Dragonrider 27th Oct 2012, 4:45 PM edit delete reply

Aw you're no fun a little inter service never hurt anyone much, unless it was in someplace like the "We Try Harder" on payday, Airborne seemed to think they owned the place and they didn't really like competition.

BTW can't say much I failed as a father, my youngest joined up with Uncle Sams Misguided Children. I hang my head in shame at times.
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 7:26 PM edit delete reply

feel free to compaire and have fun just no flames :D

Although brawls can be fun.. with jello.
Rashala 27th Oct 2012, 11:24 PM edit delete reply

So centy what did Tokyo and marcus *and TD8 think of that Marchign song?
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 11:27 PM edit delete reply

dunno yet :D
Rashala 27th Oct 2012, 11:30 PM edit delete reply

Kyo just asking

PS, Exactly how badly would TD kill me if Soemoen IE em did walk up to her while she was watchign ada and her Sig other reuniteing and whoile she was sayign human emotions Yech...yanked her side ways and gave her a 9.8 on teh richter scale kiss

On a scale of 1 - 10 of death 1 being fast and quick or 10 slow horrible and agronizing as if asking her to wear that little thong outfit from the shorts you did
Centcomm 27th Oct 2012, 11:35 PM edit delete reply

That depends on how much you like being flung across the room and then being curb stompted untill she gets tired.. ( this is all assuming you dont fight back ) I did mention shes rather violent ?
Rashala 27th Oct 2012, 11:51 PM edit delete reply

Well remembe TDs in a new....sensitive boddy...that might buy me a few seconds..

but ...meh WORTH IT!

All that violence and anger we know is just a protective armnor. If she let it down for a minute who know's she might discover in well certain situation/circumstances she likes humans....Ie that being the post mission emotinal High well sex sence.
Dragonrider 28th Oct 2012, 10:23 AM edit delete reply

@Rashala remember unless she has another upgrade she doesn't have the equipment.
Centcomm 28th Oct 2012, 10:39 AM edit delete reply

Thats correct Dragon currently her "detail" is only surface. and little to no special nerve endings. its just regular covering to her. and it was a convenent place to add in the waste disposal and other ports. along with the one at the back of her head under her hair and the bellybutton. ( that andriods all seem to have anyway... )

so as far as sex goes . she can have sex as well as a barbie doll. >_<
Rashala 28th Oct 2012, 12:44 PM edit delete reply

True. But remember my hypothetical situation involved only TD getting a KISS.

and she does have lips ;)
Centcomm 28th Oct 2012, 1:27 PM edit delete reply

this is true and yes she does have lips they are kinda needed for talking .. sorta :D
jas 28th Oct 2012, 2:50 PM edit delete reply

I particularly love the art and dialogue on this page! Lock and load, ladies!!
Centcomm 28th Oct 2012, 4:58 PM edit delete reply

lock and load indeed! thank you for the art compliments you can thank Rose for the wordsmithing :D
Dragonrider 28th Oct 2012, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

@Rashala as well as lips she also has teeth and I would estimate she has a bite strength of at least twice that of a Pit Bull, 2200 lbs per square inch for the Pit Bull, so if you wanna stick your lips into that kinda buzz saw, sell tickets first. I wanna have a front row seat to see that one. Hell I'll even have a team of paramedics and an ambulance on stand by.
Rashala 28th Oct 2012, 4:24 PM edit delete reply

I am sure cenntcomm will put it up on the cities Giant Sky screen cam*
Centcomm 28th Oct 2012, 4:59 PM edit delete reply

Oh HELL no put that up on Luna-comm as pay per view!
Centcomm 28th Oct 2012, 4:59 PM edit delete reply

Heee! Ill get the popcorn !
Rashala 28th Oct 2012, 6:11 PM edit delete reply

you realize..there is a CHANCE She might actaully likes the kiss and doesnt kill me
Centcomm 28th Oct 2012, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

would you take those odds to vagas? :D and sure theres a chance , after all anything is possable XD it all depends on her mood.
Rashala 28th Oct 2012, 6:17 PM edit delete reply

I would. And I would wait til After a successfull mission when she would be all worked up and bursting with pleasure from doign what she loves *ie buttkicking* THEN do it

PS. Let me know what Tokyo and marcus think
