Its not the card in your hand Dolly that win you the game. Its your attitude and the Fear of the other players who fold that does
Centcomm 6th Jun 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

this is true but a good/bad hand can sure make the game worse or better..
Dragonrider 7th Jun 2013, 5:17 AM edit delete reply

*cue twangy guitar and hillbilly voice from "Watchdog" A1*
"If you're gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right.

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.

Now Ev'ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
'Cause ev'ry hand's a winner and ev'ry hand's a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep."

CeCi asserts her self.
Rashala 6th Jun 2013, 8:58 PM edit delete reply

lucky :/ I don't think I ever been quoted.
Sheela 7th Jun 2013, 8:58 AM edit delete reply

Being quoted is now a thing ?
Dang, I gotta apply myself then.

Also, CeCi Logic = Fuzzy Logic ?
Centcomm 7th Jun 2013, 9:04 AM edit delete reply

hey it can happen :D Like ive said I may not "always" reply to every comment but I do read every one. trust me.
Sheela 7th Jun 2013, 1:35 PM edit delete reply

Well, that's a comfort. :)
Rashala 7th Jun 2013, 3:49 PM edit delete reply

CEci =WARM and Fuzzy logic Sheela :)
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 5:14 AM edit delete reply

Ah .. well, I was kinda hinting at Fuzzy Logic ... but warm and fuzzy and snuggly will do as well. :)
Stormwind13 15th Jul 2013, 1:55 PM edit delete reply

That makes me think of Schrödinger's cat which is another kind of fuzzy. :-D
velvetsanity 6th Jun 2013, 6:10 PM edit delete reply

Centcomm 6th Jun 2013, 6:35 PM edit delete reply

Im hoping we can break the 70s next.. I know I know wishful thinking .. but we can do it if everyone votes! :D
cattservant 7th Jun 2013, 9:26 AM edit delete reply

It's 80 now and been dropping slowly all morning.
Don B. 8th Jun 2013, 4:17 PM edit delete reply
You've come down from the upper 90's in about two weeks. you'll probably break the 70's in the next bay or so.
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 10:48 AM edit delete reply

I would be so pleased :D it would make me estatic :D
Dragonrider 7th Jun 2013, 5:20 AM edit delete reply

Ask what Ceci just found out, This is the Droid you are looking for, listen to it.

KarToon12 7th Jun 2013, 6:33 AM edit delete reply

Hopefully, there's nothing fishy about the earrings.

I like the lighting in the first panel. :D
Centcomm 7th Jun 2013, 9:05 AM edit delete reply

thank you .. I could have put a fill light under her but I think it would have looked odd with the shop lights above.
Songgu Kwon 8th Jun 2013, 12:41 AM edit delete reply

I also like the 1st panel. I like the angle.
Centcomm 8th Jun 2013, 1:31 AM edit delete reply

Gleee - I wanted to get a sense of this is just between them kinda thing.. :D
scassett 7th Jun 2013, 9:46 AM edit delete reply

Okay!! Finally caught up to the present. Just have to say this is now my Second Favorite comic (Right behind Zona!)Keep up the fantastic work! Rated and Voted!
Centcomm 7th Jun 2013, 9:57 AM edit delete reply

wow - thank you - HUGS glad you like it! its my baby. Checked out Zona thats pretty cool !
scassett 7th Jun 2013, 10:09 AM edit delete reply

Love the 3D, but it is the storytelling and art production that make a great comic!
Centcomm 7th Jun 2013, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

the CGI is a vehicle - we try to make sure it fits but we do what we can :D Ill let Rose know the compliment too she does the majority ( actually all of the text clean up )of the clean up on text and dialouge and the balloons :D

I come up with the plot and basic dialiouge then she does her magic. :D
Dragonrider 7th Jun 2013, 5:12 PM edit delete reply

Been reading Zona since the start he has tamed down the outrageous figures he had for a while and the plot is good but I think there are other 3D that are better, this being one of them.
Rashala 7th Jun 2013, 3:53 PM edit delete reply

Kinda Funny little story here cause of this episode's name.

I have the game Poker Night 2 Which has Everyones hated AI Glados as a Dealer.

And it made me have a really funny mental thought.....of CEci, Dolly Lynn,acantha tedee ada, marcus and the rest of the cast all citting at a table while Centcomms doll with a traditional dealers cap on deals hands of texas holdem
velvetsanity 7th Jun 2013, 5:55 PM edit delete reply

That would make a good incentive pic, IMO :D
Rashala 7th Jun 2013, 6:43 PM edit delete reply

true.... but...who would have the most chips
velvetsanity 7th Jun 2013, 6:50 PM edit delete reply

Dolly. Unless I'm invited to play. Then it would still be Dolly. :D
Rashala 7th Jun 2013, 7:36 PM edit delete reply

*waits for Rose redee marcus and others to weight in
Centcomm 7th Jun 2013, 11:41 PM edit delete reply

Actually .. Acantha would. shes far better at "risking" and bluffing. shes also highly agressive and does know how to keep her self in check. shes also very cutthroat when she wants to be. :D
Rashala 7th Jun 2013, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

Why do I sense Vevet and I have given the Evil pink haired one an idea :)
Centcomm 8th Jun 2013, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

insert evil laughter(tm) :D
velvetsanity 8th Jun 2013, 5:36 PM edit delete reply

She's not evil, she's just rendered that way :D
Rashala 8th Jun 2013, 10:00 PM edit delete reply

Naaahh She is just descended from Microsoft windows ME!!!!
Centcomm 8th Jun 2013, 10:08 PM edit delete reply

AHHHH! send the murder bots!!! Bring me his head! ( sounds of reactors kicking on.. )
velvetsanity 8th Jun 2013, 11:46 PM edit delete reply

If she were descended from WinME do you really think she'd have enough time between crashes to learn how to be all sneaky and skynet-like? Seriously, if she's descended from *any* version of windows, she's descended from windows 8
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 5:25 AM edit delete reply

Actually, I think Ada might surprise people in apoker game, she has to handle TeeDee after all, that'll have to require a fair bit of keeping your face straight. :D
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 5:30 AM edit delete reply

HA someone actually remembered how much work "TeeDee" wrangling can be :D and your right...
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 5:45 AM edit delete reply

Heh, TeeDee Wrangling ?

Don't let TeeDee hear that. XD
Marcus Ramesy 9th Jun 2013, 1:34 PM edit delete reply

she a decendant from a real operating system.. one that accualy works.... we call it unix... :P
Rashala 9th Jun 2013, 2:00 PM edit delete reply

A pink penguin? Marcus...I think you need to have your armor's filter's changed cause you clearly are nto getting enough O2
velvetsanity 9th Jun 2013, 2:25 PM edit delete reply

He said unix, not linux, Rash. Believe it or not, they're two very different beasts.
Some Ed 2nd Jun 2017, 6:50 PM edit delete reply
unix and linux are not *two* different beasts.

unix is a great multitude different beasts, of which a plethora are linux. It's my impression the number of linux variants are increasing faster than the number of non-linux unix variants, but linux still probably is playing catchup there. Way too much variation there to be called a single thing, which is why Windows is able to dominate it so well. Other than MacOS, I don't think any unix variant has, by itself, even 0.5% of the market.
velvetsanity 3rd Jun 2017, 6:10 AM edit delete reply

Actually, they are two different beasts. The only real common point is that they're both posix-derived systems. Linus Torvalds created the Linux kernel from scratch. And then it was paired with Richard Stallman's GNU core apps to create the beginning of what everyone knows as Linux. BSD (the basis of OS X) is another completely separate posix-based implementation. The only commonality between the three is the common ancestor (if you could call it that) of posix.
velvetsanity 9th Jun 2013, 2:24 PM edit delete reply

So she's outdated and behind the times with an obsolete interface? O_O

edit: this was supposed to be in reply to Marcus :P
LooeyQ 8th Jun 2013, 8:23 AM edit delete reply

It feels good to give dont it! As long as theres nothing secretly diabolical about it! :-O

Centcomm 8th Jun 2013, 8:36 AM edit delete reply

exactly - gifts are always awesome .. unless they come with strings.. or a BILL!
Rashala 8th Jun 2013, 8:43 PM edit delete reply

tedee got Ada and herself a gift.....and no bill...just one bullet through a doll's head :)
Centcomm 8th Jun 2013, 8:55 PM edit delete reply

haha too true..
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 5:50 AM edit delete reply

Heh, I first read it as "girls are always awesome"
Yes, yes we are.

" .. unless they come with strings .."
wait, what ?

".. or a BILL."
WTF ???
õ.O ?
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:01 AM edit delete reply

well you know gifts with the implyed reason that they want sometbhing in return. or a bill ( oh heres a nifty item to read books with - oh wait you also need a subscription to this service to use that device.. ) >_< thus .. a bill
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 6:12 AM edit delete reply

True, true ... those do suck.

It's a simple moneymaking scheme, but quite popular with companies these days. I guess it's the same with the iPad / iPhone deals - "here's an awesome thingy, but you have to buy all your programs trough our private store, and no Java .. or else!"
LooeyQ 9th Jun 2013, 10:35 AM edit delete reply

Yeah! Like when you get a sweater or a shirt, and the dang thing has a hole in it so you have to return it at the mall, your gift just became a chore! Lol!
cattservant 8th Jun 2013, 10:07 AM edit delete reply

New Moon tonight!
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 5:51 AM edit delete reply

Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 12:21 PM edit delete reply

NEW PAGE in 6 hours :D ( yes im looking forward to the new segment ! )
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 12:33 PM edit delete reply

well, looks like someone is really exited. :)
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 12:35 PM edit delete reply

YUP I would post it early but I think Rose would kill me.. horribly..
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 1:03 PM edit delete reply

Oh ?
Why ?
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 1:22 PM edit delete reply

we have so many pages "per" week if I post one early then it would be longer for the next one to post or The point of posting would keep rolling forward. :P and right now its mon - fri ( well we want it to be mon though fri ) so only 5 updates per week :D
Marcus Ramesy 9th Jun 2013, 1:37 PM edit delete reply

trust me .. ive been trying to convince her to do an update 10 times a week... but... I havent been able to convice her.... something about slave labor.. and poor starving children in africa making 30 cents a day .... and since centcom refuses to creat a sweatshop environment for creating artistic renders..... we are stuck at when "when im good and ready to" mentality ... but... we can still dream cant we??
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 1:57 PM edit delete reply

hey its not ALL my fault.. Rose has a say too.. updating 10 times a week I could do .. if I did NOTHING else. period.. now if someone wants to pay me to do that.. well then lets talk :D
Sheela 9th Jun 2013, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

30 cents a day huh ?
Heck, I have some tame monkey's who'll punch typewriters for just 10 cents a day.


They'll fling poo at my boss as well, for free !
Stormwind13 15th Jul 2013, 2:01 PM edit delete reply

Well, if someone wins the lottery, maybe they will share with you and Rose. :-)
mushroomisland 8th Jul 2013, 4:16 PM edit delete reply
