*** Update..

The new drive was re-imaged useing the last GOOD image - and the drive went into the same boot loop so that means the image is damaged.

So .. plan E reconstruct things by hand.
Im really sorry guys. Ill try to get things on track as soon as possable. and please forgive if some charcters are not quite on model. I am so tired of this...

I'm not sure if I think that Kali would accept a long skirt .. it would just hinder her from being able to run properly, when hunting someone to kill.

She'd be practical like that.
Centcomm 22nd Oct 2013, 8:24 AM edit delete reply

Formal occasions - Such as a ball might require it. :D remember shes still subject to orders :D Besides think of what she could hide under that skirt and with the proper break aways it isnt really a hinderance :D
Vivocateur 22nd Oct 2013, 9:48 AM edit delete reply

Ah heh heh.
She was originally wearing business style suit pants but I had a wee bit of a pen explosion.
Centcomm 22nd Oct 2013, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

This is what they call , adapting to fix a problem :D

BTW very nice job TPO :D
Sheela 22nd Oct 2013, 10:51 AM edit delete reply

Well, the "pen explosion" turned out nicely and all .. but I still think Kali wants to kill you for that. XD
Vivocateur 22nd Oct 2013, 11:27 AM edit delete reply

She'll have too find me first.
Oh god!
There's someone at my door.
Centcomm 22nd Oct 2013, 12:06 PM edit delete reply

LOL - turns up the music as Kali has words with TPO :D
cattservant 22nd Oct 2013, 12:12 PM edit delete reply

TPO to Go-Go!
Rashala 22nd Oct 2013, 1:50 PM edit delete reply

Centy....please. Like Kali would need any noise to cover her work.

One strong stiff finger jab to the voice box and TPO's Main concern is gonna be getting oxygen not making noise And if once he';s muted she can easily powderizer his major bones with little to no sound I mean she IS the head of the Killer cyborg/android police of Nova Roma for a reason

LOL all this is true :D

And Maxus as Lurch
And Decimus as Gomez

And Setorius as Uncle Fester!
Stormwind13 22nd Oct 2013, 4:01 PM edit delete reply

Either that or Rocky Horror cast, Cat. I'm just not sure who would be who for that though. :-D
cattservant 22nd Oct 2013, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

Kyle and Lynn can be Brad and Janet. (Damnit!)
Stormwind13 22nd Oct 2013, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

LOL. I would nominate Douche Bag for Eddie. I would CHEER on Frank N. Furter with the axe then. :-D

Riff Raff, Mr. Black? :-D
Rocky Horror, Marcus? }:->

Dammit (Janet), there are too many ladies in this comic and not enough in Rocky Horror (that were identified and spoke at least). :-)
cattservant 22nd Oct 2013, 4:39 PM edit delete reply

Boss Breaker for Riff Raff I think...
Mr Black could be Frank-N-Furter.
(Hidden depths there I think.)

oooh what a SPOOKY idea .. if i get my HD up and running I think ill do that as a hallween pic :D

cattservant 22nd Oct 2013, 4:47 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, get your HD on!!!
Stormwind13 22nd Oct 2013, 5:04 PM edit delete reply

Cat, that just sounded 'dirty'. :-D

But you are right, CentComm is going to have to scramble to make it within a week. :-)
cattservant 22nd Oct 2013, 5:18 PM edit delete reply

Nothing like a good innuendo! >^~o^<!

Is innuendo anything like in-the-end-tho? If so which end?

she does not need to hide anything......
Centcomm 23rd Oct 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

this is true :D
mjkj 23rd Oct 2013, 3:52 AM edit delete reply

Ah, I hope the HD will come soon.

How comes it is from a different company?
Antonious 23rd Oct 2013, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
Probably because the person providing the HD doesn't choose to deal with Newegg.
Centcomm 23rd Oct 2013, 4:03 PM edit delete reply

Antoinus is correct after the mess NewEgg made of this ( they wanted another 5 to 7 days or so to ship the new one out diffrent arrangements were made the new HD is here and being Tested and should be loading all the data within 24 hours :D

Again im a available on SL as Centcomm Galaxy if you want to IM me directly :D
mjkj 23rd Oct 2013, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

Ah, great to hear the HD has arrived :)

OH yeah!
velvetsanity 24th Oct 2013, 6:09 AM edit delete reply

And throughout this debacle of RMA fumbling and facepalming, DC has risen into the top 50!!!! :D

(With Luna Star not far behind!!!!)
Sheela 24th Oct 2013, 7:52 AM edit delete reply

Heh, yeah .. Datachasers and Luna Star is doing pretty well, considering they are both MIA.
Stormwind13 24th Oct 2013, 10:46 AM edit delete reply

Not MIA, Sheela just not updating on the story (sadly). We KNOW what is going on though, as CentComm and Rose are communicating with us all the time. :- )
cattservant 24th Oct 2013, 12:02 PM edit delete reply

A rare glimpse into the Commenteer Component of this fine Webcomic!
mjkj 24th Oct 2013, 1:20 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, all the effort Cent and Rose and others are putting into this comic - and to make it update again needs to be rewarded...

So, DC and LS deserve to be in the top ten - so it is only right they made it to the top fifty.

It is the least we can do for encouragement after all those low blows.

How did this HD hold up, CentComm?

Tokyo Rose 24th Oct 2013, 1:49 PM edit delete reply

Am I the only one getting the weird feeling that the outpouring of support really means "Oh thank God they're not updating that POS any more" ;D
Stormwind13 24th Oct 2013, 2:19 PM edit delete reply

Bite your tongue, Rose!!!

We are EAGERLY awaiting new updates. :-)

And information on how things are going, as mjkj already asked. :-)
Tokyo Rose 24th Oct 2013, 3:15 PM edit delete reply

I'm waiting to hear from Cent myself. Last email I got said that the re-imaging was in progress, so we'll see what happens...
Tokyo Rose 24th Oct 2013, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

Latest email from Cent:

"re-image failed. im back to square one. fucking kill me".

Stormwind13 24th Oct 2013, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

O_o No, no CentComm... We are leaving you alive for the CHARACTERS to have their revenge on when they get back from Nova Roma and realize how you screwed them all over.

Is there anything anyone can do to help?
Rashala 24th Oct 2013, 4:51 PM edit delete reply

Tokyo Rose 24th Oct 2013, 5:26 PM edit delete reply

This is actively and aggressively failing to make sense, since the image was made like a week before the motherboard got fried and the C: drive's boot sector was borked.

Friend of mine always says that "computers don't make mistakes, people do." I fervently disagree since these fucking things seem to take an active delight in doing crap they're not supposed to do.
cattservant 24th Oct 2013, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

AI* perhaps?

velvetsanity 25th Oct 2013, 10:11 AM edit delete reply

I blame Microsoft.
Sheela 25th Oct 2013, 11:09 AM edit delete reply

It's possible that the image itself is correct, but that the boot partition bit isn't set to active.

Ie. the data is all there, but you just can't boot from it - Which would be fine if you boot from another drive, and then use it as a secondary storage drive.
Stormwind13 26th Oct 2013, 10:20 AM edit delete reply

Centcomm 24th Oct 2013, 7:26 PM edit delete reply

well new plan is reload the OS ,, and put the files back into the directorys by hand and rebuild the structure .. thats on the books for tomorrow..

again thank you guys for all your support and help !! and tomorrow is doctors APPT! ( this is a good thing )
Marcus Ramesy 25th Oct 2013, 6:30 AM edit delete reply

that is the plan.. Ill do this via cellular connection to my laptop while Im in the office and pray that the network stays at 4g all day.. before I go up to baltimore... email me when you get online.... as for the rest of you.. send good thoughts this way that I can recover what is in the back up... I should be able to... but.. if not.. I do have a plan z for this as well.. but for now.. pray to the computer gods and eris, that we can make this work... I planed for this eventuality.. I hate it when the systems.. back up systems.. and the backup back up systems fail... there are only so many points of failure I can account for.. after that.. its dilberat sabotage by the gods/fate/humans/ninja monkeys/renegade nuns with guns and so on
cattservant 25th Oct 2013, 7:42 AM edit delete reply

It's those abandoned Florida Palmetto Bugs exacting revenge!
Marcus Ramesy 25th Oct 2013, 9:24 AM edit delete reply

I shall extract my revenge upon them as well.. I still have access to heave weaponry.. and.. orbital strikes..... not to mention a standing army of drones that can be called upon if need be.... my wrath shall be final.. and all encompassing..

Careful you don't disturb the Leopards!
Sheela 25th Oct 2013, 11:11 AM edit delete reply

The trick is to make the Palmetto Bugs and Ninja Monkeys fight it out between themselves, and then step in and eradicate the few straggling survivors, once the battle is over.
Marcus Ramesy 25th Oct 2013, 11:20 AM edit delete reply

ninja monkeys make great minions and fodder
... and taste great on toast.

Hey Palmetto bugs, the Ninja Monkeys are weaponizing boric acid.

Boric acid is like swimming in broken glass to insects.

I am quite sure it is the fault of the Murphy family.

and to all of you people.... sorry I havent been on as much as before.. after moving to Charlotte NC.. its been a crazy mad house here since getting here... half the time no network access.. phone access is limited.. data access was crap and getting to and from work was and adventure in and of its self.. next time I decided I want to add some adventure to my life.. some one hit me with a 2x4 and remind me its a bad idea.. :P... but for now.. things are some what back to normal... Im back to working from home.. no car any more. but thats not to bad now... and getting my finances back in order after the last car I purchased left me stranded in baltimore.. long story.. Ill tell ya all later if you want.. but.. for now.... just to let you know im mostly back and have time to see your comments again... so.. as always.. be safe out there.. always use the buddy system... and when the zombie horde comes your way.... throw a grenade and run like hell..
velvetsanity 25th Oct 2013, 10:04 AM edit delete reply

Marcus, next time you want some adventure in your life...make sure to take Dr. Silver, Ada and Teedee with you. :P

You never know when you might find yourself needing patched up or need some sort of backup.
Marcus Ramesy 25th Oct 2013, 10:36 AM edit delete reply

LOL no mater where I go.. they are always with me.. if not in spirit...
Sheela 25th Oct 2013, 11:14 AM edit delete reply

If the zombie horde is in the way, just drive in something like this and it'll be no problem .. no problem at all. :)
Marcus Ramesy 25th Oct 2013, 11:20 AM edit delete reply

that was used in one of the monster hunter books... I think monster hunter international: alpha...
Stormwind13 25th Oct 2013, 3:15 PM edit delete reply

Glad to hear from you again, Marcus. Sorry to hear about your troubles. I've found moves are NEVER fun, even when they are good for one.

Hope everything keeps getting better. Always have other people around Marcus, it gives them (be they zombies, mercenaries or thugs) someone else to attack! :-D
Marcus Ramesy 25th Oct 2013, 3:53 PM edit delete reply

what?? and let them have all the fun???
Stormwind13 25th Oct 2013, 6:27 PM edit delete reply

coruse by then I hope we can also build Andoirdds like CEci cause I willb e first in line to ask th be partnered with her ;)
Stormwind13 26th Oct 2013, 6:02 PM edit delete reply

Naw, you wouldn't be the first unless you were on the team MAKING such entities as CeCi. :-D Because someone on that team would skip the line and get in first. :-)
cattservant 26th Oct 2013, 8:49 PM edit delete reply

I'm interested to see how they develop the fem-bot back then on Luna-Star.

Stormy stormy stormy.....

You don't know me very well. Of course I would be first.

simple reason I'd cheat ;)
Stormwind13 27th Oct 2013, 1:35 PM edit delete reply

Well, that MIGHT work. :-) I know you would be trying for sure, not that I could blame you there. Being able to get to know someone like CeCi FIRST would be worth cheating for. :-)
Tokyo Rose 27th Oct 2013, 4:32 PM edit delete reply

I'm perpetually annoyed that it is The Future(tm) and they STILL haven't invented awesome cyborg eyes. I've been seriously nearsighted most of my life, and of course it's only getting worse over time. Where are my cyborg eyeballs with microscopic/telescopic capability*, Science?!

* Or at least 20/20 vision; imagine accidentally activating Micro Vision at the wrong time. You might find yourself suddenly staring into a hellish wasteland densely pocked with oily filth-craters and scream your head off in the middle of a meeting with your boss. The human nose is TERRIFYING under sufficient magnification.
Stormwind13 27th Oct 2013, 4:45 PM edit delete reply

LOL Rose. MOST things look terrifyingly alien under high magnification. :-)

And might I suggest Lasik for your nearsightedness? Worked wonders for me and others I know (I went from a 20/575 to 20/18). :-) Just make sure you get a GOOD doctor for it. Eyes are too precious to trust to just ANY quack.

Still, cyborg eyes would be pretty neat (see Honor Harrington :-D). Just have to watch your twitches that might trigger them changing modes. :-D

Update on the Phoenix Project (and no, that wasn't CentComm's move to the desert) - City of Titans.

The Kickstarter for City of Titans (The Phoenix Project) is nearing 1/2 a million!!! Which is well over their initial levels they were looking for. :-) Still a week to go too, so if you haven't jumped in or want to up your bid, you still have time.

At half a million they will hit their 4th stretch goal. None of the early ones excite me that much, but some of the LATER ones I would love to get to. $500K will get auras and $550K would unlock WINGS, which I'm always in favor of. :-) And if they managed $600K (anyone have a spare $100K? :-D) that would unlock 5 power sets per class at launch. :-)

So if you are still thinking about joining in, now is the time. Or even upping your commitment (and I know many of the commenters here SHOULD be committed }:-D~>) you have time to do so. But the time is rapidly running out, one week to go. :-)

Fairportfan 27th Oct 2013, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

Okay. I'm not there - and you may have resolved your problems - but.

I assume it's Windows. What version?

Since you imaged the drive, and it goes into a "boot loop" - i assume that's rebooting perpetually - if it's windows 7, have you tried booting from an install disk (if you have one) and running "Startup Repair"?

Here's a page that talks about recovery from a boot loop:

(Assuming you haven't tried that already.)

Be sure to follow the instructions exactly if you try it.
Centcomm 28th Oct 2013, 9:34 AM edit delete reply

the master boot record seems to be damaged according to Marcus. this has swiftly gone far beyond my ability to understand whats wrong. its now at the "just fix it stage "
Marcus Ramesy 28th Oct 2013, 11:03 AM edit delete reply

posted on behalf of Centcom: having technical dificultis, the 3 tb drive will show up as a 2.3tb drive and a 700gb drive.... drive is odd..this happens under MBR, when set up as GPT drive.. it shows as a full drive.. but.. windows can not install to a gpt drive.... so.. back to the drawing board... ... will format as 2 drives and get centcom back up.. (im in baltimore this week) if you have any questions.. feel free to msg me at and Ill explain more if need be.
Marcus Ramesy 28th Oct 2013, 11:16 AM edit delete reply

on that note.. 3tb drives do not work under windows prperly unless you have the poper efi firmwre that supports it... so... after research.. the 3tb drive will only recognize 2tb .. this will let the os be installed.. .. I will do more research later to see if there is a way to get the rest of the drive to show up after the instalation of the os.. there is 700gb that the system sees on the drive.. but will NOT let the system format and use... will research more.. unless any of you all have an idea.. this is my first time dealing wiht a 3tb drive in this way.. always used them as aux storage... or on a nas... so... learn something new... any way.. should have cent up by the end of the day...
Stormwind13 28th Oct 2013, 2:52 PM edit delete reply

Here is what I found on it, Marcus - -3TB Drive

Edit - And there is apparently a program that allows you to access the rest of it, here is the U-Tube video on it - How to access it

And here is the link to the program - DiscWizard v13 (I know it is on Seagate page, but apparently the program is for any drive)
Sheela 28th Oct 2013, 4:15 PM edit delete reply

Depends on the filesystem you use.

The old FAT 32 can only allocate up to 2 TB drives, but the NTFS system can allocate up to 256 TB (256 × 1024^4 bytes) on a 64kb cluster size. If instead you use just a 4kb cluster size, the max limit is 16TB, which is still plenty.
mjkj 28th Oct 2013, 11:31 PM edit delete reply

Great to hear you are making advances with the drive. :)
