Title: Greetings (again again)
Post by: Geradex Acondari on November 18, 2013, 10:49:26 PM
I don't know how many times I have done this. I go through these phases where I get super busy and distracted and keep going "yeah I should check back here" but then "oh shiny nickle" moments happen.
I think I will probably spend time re-reading the comic and get myself up to speed.
It's amazing to see how far things have come and who is still here from "back in the day". This is a place I will never forget that's for sure.

Well welcome back again! (again)

I'm out of loose confetti right now, so take some of these cascarones in case you need to fend off anybody with eggshell confetti grenades. ^.=.^

*Wheels in a cart of plushies protected by a portable-hole-proof force field* Welcome back to the forum! As a welcome gift, I offer you an Altermeta Plushie! You can choose from CC, Jo, Boo, Pirate!T-Square and Agnes, and Rum-Wench!Sasha. Enjoy!

*The mad hugger gives you a hug* then almost collides with the pastry cart while leaving.

Secretly equips Boo plushies with Lojack device.

And welcome back!

Oh uh, there's something on your back...

I hear if you collect enough of these you can levitate ;)

Welcome back, good to see you :D

Welcome back to this corner of the internet!

Be warned: Any food left unattended will be devoured by shadowy forum lurkers.

You must have handed me at least a dozen of those things over the years XD!
This place has never failed to make me feel welcome.

I think back in the day constitutes something that happened, at the most recent, in the 80s... which Altermeta is... my point ceases to make sense even to me. Welcome back, I miss seeing that funky avatar pop up.

*walks up to Geradex and hands him a bag of popcorn*

That's a bag of welcome popcorn, and it the latest model! I've been working with Acme to come up with a bottomless popcorn bag, and we succeeded! Once you reach the first bag bottom, you can reach in further and pull out whatever kind of freshly popped popcorn you want. Just be careful. It'll be hot! I'm thinking of calling this a Popcornicopia Of Plenty. :)

Also, be warned. Intro threads can be hotbeds for mayhem.
Usually started by me. :)

Now then, where did the plushie cart go?
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: MeepSire on November 20, 2013, 03:04:34 PM
Oh, it's over there covered in mist...

Welcome back!

*Offers Geradex some welcome pastry of his choice*

Gives +2 to weight, so you might as well just stay (instead of flying away with all those balloons).

*gasp* Oh, Noes! My force-field generator's malfunctioning! We need to get those plushies out of there  fast before they're crushed! Somebody HELP!

*crashes through the ceiling on something made of 2x4s and model rocket engines*

Watch ooooouuuuuu- *KTCHSSSSHHHH*
*the fall is cushioned by force field and plushies*

*the misty force field flickers momentarily, trapping Jchan among the plushies and slowly closes in on him.*

Lisbon! Hurry! I need one of your Portable Holes!
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: MeepSire on November 21, 2013, 01:08:17 AM
No need, I'll handle this one.
*Pulls up sleeve revealing a sleek purple armband*
Here goes!
*uses armband to teleport inside field*
Gotcha! Now let's make this quick, this prototype can only jump twice a charge.
*teleports out with Jchan before field shrinks and dissapears*
Close one. Though I couldn't save the other half of whatever you were riding...
*notices armband about to catch fire*
Gah! Medic!

*walks up behind Meep and douses his arm with fire suppressant foam*

Um, Rich, didn't you say the force field was portable hole proof?
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: Jay Chan on November 21, 2013, 09:02:33 AM
No one ever said it was makeshift-aeroship-going-down-in-flames...-proof...

*dusts himself off*
Ah well, better get on making a better -and safer- prototype.

Um, Rich, didn't you say the force field was portable hole proof?

When it's malfunctioning like that, it's only Portable-Hole Resistant. I would have been able to reach through and rescue the plushies and Jchan. But when Meep teleported in, he further destabilized the field, accelerating the collapse.

Perhaps something with propellers this time? Propellers are awfully cool
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: Jay Chan on November 23, 2013, 09:29:43 AM
Ooh yeah propellers are very cool, if cumbersome. Maybe I should give the next one wheels and just propeller along the ground...

Maybe your spark plugs were bad..?

Spark plugs? We're talking about a force-field generator here, not an internal combustion engine!

Now that you mention it, though, the flow regulator seems to have combusted internally.
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: Liram on December 14, 2013, 05:41:30 AM
So then an enhanced cooling system of some kind on the next model?

Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on December 14, 2013, 05:22:03 PM

Yes. And I'll rig the regulator to be un-bypassable; if the regulator fails, the entire system automatically shuts off.
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: MeepSire on December 21, 2013, 06:35:04 AM
Hmm it seems that your design only runs off of a 0.896 KW power supply...
Are you sure that's enough to project a field?
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on December 21, 2013, 04:51:13 PM
Oh, that's plenty. But, now that you mention it, it would be less failure-prone if I bumped it up to a full kw. Anything more than that would be wasteful.
Title: Re: Greetings (again again)
Post by: MeepSire on December 22, 2013, 03:42:39 AM
You could add blinky lights and a stereo to use any excess power...
