Update Notification!

So, first lesson when dealing with computer security: never open attachments from unknown, unsollicited, or unexpected sources!

But in this specific case?
I wonder if I would not start that smart chess program, that's been able to understand my language despite first contact, been able to analyze my hardware so that it can send me something, and that could bypass the "fly mode", and yet was not able to autostart itself....

Skynet activated!

So, Alexander got dressed, and got mail.
The bucket that went "Whirrrrr Clik!" is very similar to the crude container used by the Historian Personality Construct during chapter 1.
Anyone's guess now from whom the message comes.


Edit: also, that's the sixth week in a row with an update!
The lack of background may be helping. Let's hope the scene stays a while, so we can enjoy the update speed.

8th page this year so far, last year (2018) had a total of 23 pages (including one on 1st of January, and two on 31st of December)

Nice!
(Where's my game-boy, and where can I get a version of this for it?)

Believe it or not, yesterday page 151 went up.
4th week in a row!

By content not much.
Yes, we Humans do have a nakedness taboo.

On my twitter feed I've been waiting for the tongue to wiggle aroumd and press buttons on the screen....
36  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: April 15, 2019, 09:55:22 am
Nice, page 150 is now up too,
And one panel of the next page was shown in the WIP thread already.
No background to be rendered, so it goes fast.

Apparently the comic always stalled when a new setting appeared, as Mr. Francis makes the setup and then renders it from different angles.... And that always takes a lot of time, reducing his motivation...

Enjoying the current speed for as long as it'll last.
37  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: April 09, 2019, 08:30:18 am
And the next page is up.
http://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider149.html

Due to server issues, the forums of that comic are down. The creator is expecting a server rollback, and therefore the page might disappear again for a while, until he brings it up again.
38  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Fan Art! on: April 02, 2019, 10:55:02 am

There are two more finished pages, for his patreons already.
For once, Francis decided to not update en bloc, but either weekly, or every two weeks. His forumites hope that'll allow him to finish another page before the stack is out,...
40  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Report only one post on: March 30, 2019, 03:34:25 pm
No, he gets one email for everyreport.
Once you sent an email, he knows he need to come and delete spam. Once he's here he checks all new posts for spam anyway, so no further clogging of his inbox is necessary...

If you are willing but unable to purchase the book, you can read the PDF for free and make a donation via Paypal. That also works if you just want the author to shut up and take your money

Just follow the link, find the paypal button and send him your gratitude.

That would be much easier to fake than the alleged moonlanding...
Just make one of the voyagers send fake signals back to us.....
(or throw a minisatellite with the next launch into a very high orbit).
Boom!
A reason to spend bilions on space programs and space military!
43  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: March 20, 2019, 03:48:44 pm
This chapter runs since page 92, which has been published on 1st of August 2011. You'll be looking at something like 1 chapter per decade...
Currently, the whole story forecasts 7-8 chapters (and we're still in chapter 2).
(Chapter 1 started 30 May 2002)
There has been some fun on the outsider forum projecting when the comic might end.
I might need to free some budget to support the creators patreon, to help get the story moving.

This reminds me of a Heinlein article where he said how nationalism was a good thing - an incomplete thing, but a step up from being solely concerned with the individual.
Yep, he did write so, and thereby also concluded that nationalism is a dead end, and causing problems.
It's like racism.
We are concerned with something more than just ourselves, our family, our clan. But we're still not concerned with the greater good of all humanity.

My continued conclusion:
This might change once we meet aliens and the racism will be projected not across colour differences between us Humans, but between Alien life forms and Humans.

Which may also not be a good thing, as likely the Aliens will possess the ability to end our existence when we start with racism against "them".

Any sufficiently advanced technology will seem like magic to those sufficiently far behind the technology curve.
