Tripping already...
New boots!

[At least >>****<< is happy.]
velvetsanity 2nd Jun 2013, 10:15 PM edit delete reply *is* causing a delay. Perhaps not in the way CentComm intended, but still...hope Ceci's alright...
Rashala 2nd Jun 2013, 9:48 PM edit delete reply

I think combatclippy just crashed itself
cattservant 2nd Jun 2013, 10:08 PM edit delete reply

Or lost it's competition! It sounds quite relieved.
velvetsanity 2nd Jun 2013, 10:13 PM edit delete reply

Maybe she finally cracked it!

At least I hope that's it and it's not restoring from a hidden backup...
cattservant 2nd Jun 2013, 10:20 PM edit delete reply

">> Oh, FINALLY. <<" doesn't sound exactly encouraging.
EDIT: Actually it Does! Since Comic 965 >>****<< seems to have merged with CeCi's ego.
So it is of significance that >>****<< is the same color as CeCi's speech/thought bubbles! Maybe running in the same CPU?
Rashala 2nd Jun 2013, 11:20 PM edit delete reply

its not the SAME color
cattservant 2nd Jun 2013, 11:43 PM edit delete reply

Your eyes are sharper than mine. They both look pale green* to me.

*(Sort of like a Luna moth.)
velvetsanity 3rd Jun 2013, 6:19 AM edit delete reply

Ceci's voice is pale green, but the chihuahua's is blue.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 6:46 AM edit delete reply

correct we also changed it so that people would stop confusing it with Cent Comm..
cattservant 3rd Jun 2013, 8:20 AM edit delete reply

>>****<< started out wearing Cent-Comm's colors and giving CeCi 'directives'.
Now it is wearing CeCi's colors and 'speaking' her inner dialog!

[I don't quite understand the difference between CeCi's thoughts (in the bubbles) and what >>****<< is now saying though.]
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 8:31 AM edit delete reply

not sure I understand the question ..
cattservant 3rd Jun 2013, 11:57 AM edit delete reply

Comic 965 for example;
In panel one, CeCi is thinking her usual pale green thoughts in bubbles.
In panel two, she is using pale green >>****<< to respond to Watchdog's input.

Is this two different 'modes' of CeCi's thought process, or is >>****<< a type of internal communication like 'squeak-speak' (0101010) is externally?

[Apparently my brain is roughage deficient at the moment.]
velvetsanity 3rd Jun 2013, 5:06 PM edit delete reply

Ohhhh, *that's* what you meant! It seems to be a type of internal communication, as it's only used to frame responses to the chihuahua.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 5:56 PM edit delete reply

Velvet is dead on as always good catch :D
Don B. 2nd Jun 2013, 10:34 PM edit delete reply
Mira seems to be pretty optimistic in that last panel. Cheerful even. So why do I get the feeling that the fan is running and something unpleasant is flying toward it?
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 6:47 AM edit delete reply

Mira is ALWAYS cheerful when allowed to be.. :D
Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 8:57 AM edit delete reply
Probably not while around Rotter though. It's nice to see that growing up in the wastes hasn't made her mean. It couldn't have been easy.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 9:01 AM edit delete reply

she actually enjoys sparring with the old fart. Hes not half as mean as he acts. shes also lucky to have a invaluable skill set. knowing tech has probably saved her from far worse fates.
Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 9:45 AM edit delete reply
I've known my share of grumpy old farts and it is a lot of fun to verbally spar with them. I enjoyed Mira's banter with Rotter. She's pretty funny when giving him guff.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 9:53 AM edit delete reply

hehe that she is .. and she doesnt back down when she gets her ire up :D
Sheela 3rd Jun 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

That makes me think - What's the basic story behind Rotter ?
And would he put himself in harms way, if Mira got threatened ?
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 8:30 PM edit delete reply

in a word .. no. he has self preservation. key word is "self" no heart of gold there.
you know the old saying I dont have to be faster than the radscorpion .. just faster than you. " hamstring" you have just become " a distraction"
Sheela 4th Jun 2013, 6:40 AM edit delete reply

So, he's like the Zee Captain then ?
Who would rather call on the moderator, than face the music himself ?
(awesome comic btw.)
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 2nd Jun 2013, 11:12 PM edit delete reply

Panel 2, especially, is gorgeous.

BTW, I finished my Datachasers review. Unlike my wife, it's not short.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 7:23 AM edit delete reply

its a awesome review too :D
Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 12:32 PM edit delete reply
Where can I find this review? I've only found a few brief ones. Positive but brief. I'd like to see an in depth one.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 1:10 PM edit delete reply

here ya go Review comic fury
Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
Thank you CentComm. Did I say in depth? Sweet Jeevus! I wasn't expecting that! That was the most thorough, page by page review I have ever seen. One of these days I'll need to take a week and go through the review and your comic to see exactly what he's talking about. Tough but fair. I like it. It seems Tibbittz does this kind of thing too. If so, could someone point me to an example of his work? I'd like to see how he handles things.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 4:54 PM edit delete reply

just click his name in the comment above also ill put a link here.. >>Eternal Knights<< some really awesome art in this comic..
Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 6:06 PM edit delete reply
Thanks again. I'll admit that most reviewers/critics strike me as somewhat jaded. Maybe because of a lack of talent or maybe because of unreasonable expectations...can't really say. Having seen Tibbittz's work, I'm sure that neither is the case. He knows what he's talking about and I can see why you think his review is awesome. Constructive criticism indeed.
ge2org 2nd Jun 2013, 11:43 PM edit delete reply

why do i get a bad feeling??
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 6:47 AM edit delete reply

because you know we are evil and mean?
velvetsanity 3rd Jun 2013, 7:39 PM edit delete reply

Not pulling punches is a far cry from "evil and mean" :P
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 8:29 PM edit delete reply

evil laughter .. :D
velvetsanity 4th Jun 2013, 5:12 AM edit delete reply

EvilGM is only actually evil when the story truly calls for it. Trust me, I've played under what might possibly be the most evil GM of all time...TimB from undernet's #shadowrun channel. :)
CyberSkull 2nd Jun 2013, 11:47 PM edit delete reply

It looks like watchdog isn't very well made. It doesn't seem to have sufficiently deep access to CeCi.
cattservant 3rd Jun 2013, 12:37 AM edit delete reply

Cent-Comm might not have noticed* that logic is not always the best tool for motivating young impressionable Black Angels.

*(Given her nature and history.)
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 6:47 AM edit delete reply

um yeah glitches.. :D
Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 12:11 PM edit delete reply
Ceci can be logical when she feels the just doesn't seem to be her default setting.
velvetsanity 3rd Jun 2013, 1:31 AM edit delete reply

I just realized something. I may be wrong but I think the errors and code violations are hacking efforts in progress on Ceci's part. The "oh finally" was because she finally managed to force it to reboot with her changes applied, just like windows sometimes has to do with updates.
Sheela 3rd Jun 2013, 4:14 AM edit delete reply

Ruh-roh .. CombatClippy is in trouble !
Dragonrider 3rd Jun 2013, 5:28 AM edit delete reply

@catservant not Sally Mata Hari would be more appropriate.
The reboot isn't a real good thing, could move Ceci out of the drivers seat and leave Centcomms AI in charge. However with Dolly aware of the problem short of overt action Ceci couldn't do anything and the best way to avert that is to put Mil Grade suppressors on Ceci and leave her behind.
cattservant 3rd Jun 2013, 6:29 AM edit delete reply

Mata Hari. Excellent idea!
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 6:48 AM edit delete reply

things that make you go Hmmmmm....
LooeyQ 3rd Jun 2013, 7:17 AM edit delete reply

Uh-oh! Her head gonna explodes!
KarToon12 3rd Jun 2013, 7:33 AM edit delete reply

I hope they're able to help Ceci. She's a really great character.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 8:32 AM edit delete reply

shes adorable :D
Dragonrider 3rd Jun 2013, 10:07 AM edit delete reply

Woo-Woo you made it down to #88 on TWC that's the best I have seen.

Yes Ceci is adorable, even if she does have a booster antenna printed circuit in the tribal tat on her arm.
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

87 even ! and quit giving away all Ceci's secrets LOL ! and you guys make it possable I wuv you guys !
cattservant 3rd Jun 2013, 12:01 PM edit delete reply

Dragonrider 3rd Jun 2013, 5:44 PM edit delete reply

Unfortunately Centcomm see's your army and raises you 10 orbital cannon and 5 kitten cannons.
Rashala 3rd Jun 2013, 6:19 PM edit delete reply

Good thing we are all meeting at your house dragon :)

Seriously though I raise her orbital cannons and 5 kitten cannons with 10 lunar mortar batteries... and 15 Kamikazi GERBILS!!!
Centcomm 3rd Jun 2013, 8:28 PM edit delete reply

Don B. 3rd Jun 2013, 9:13 PM edit delete reply
Jeez guys...this keeps up, there will be a wisp of smoke left where a planet used to be. Subtlety is the key...release the Infiltration Ninja Weevils! Mission: slipping random code generating pixies into CentComms central core processor. Nothing like a good brain itch to distract her from all that scheming.
velvetsanity 3rd Jun 2013, 10:01 PM edit delete reply

Bah. All that's needed is one Captain Jack Sparrow, well spiced with rum
Rashala 3rd Jun 2013, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

Jack: "Can't we all just get along, mate? There's plenty of rum about. And wenches. Don't get me started on the wenches in this comic. *Jack notices Dolly* Well hello there beautiful, I don't believe we've met. I'm Captain Jack Sparrow. And who might you be?"
Rashala 4th Jun 2013, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

*watches Dolly Turn JAck inside out when he tries to touch her butt * oh kay....why not have him hit on tedee he'd die more mercifully
velvetsanity 4th Jun 2013, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

With his luck? No matter how you kill him, or how many times, he'll be back in a week lol

She's apparently based on Kaylee from Firefly, accent and all
