Star Warp starts October 4 and will run through next year. Can you feel the excitement? Is it just me? It's just me, isn't it?

The design doesn't reference anything specific, I just wanted an appropriately swoopy look that feels like that popular space show. And that other show that was sold as a parody but is really more like the source material than any of the recent versions. Of that movie that's a parody but also one of the best movies in the franchise. And that dark parody of the original show on the anthology thing? Yeah, I'm just saying "color-coded uniforms and sleek spaceships is a genre."

Huh. For some reason this image isn't showing up in all browsers? Or is that just me?

Works in my Firefox on Linux Mint.

Shows up in Vivaldi (Chromium based), Edge (also Chromium), whatever version of IE that Win 10 ships with and Firefox 78 ESR

ED: just when did Firefox version numbers get so high?

No matter what the intention was, it still looks like a high tech vibrator ;)
This is not a bad thing...

Firefox is currently at 92.0.1 and just updated the other day, it might be good to get the newer version, there's been a lot of security fixes trying to cover for windoze leaks...

Awww, I honestly wasn't going for that. I think the Orville looks WAY more like a high-end sex toy — all those curves? The Endurance has WAY too many sharp edges.

ESR is the extended support release version of Firefox. I started using it because constant UI and usability changes were getting really annoying. This way you get them all in one lump every year or so and you get all the security fixes as you need them

Nice try, Bedlam guy! That's not how an Alcubierre drive works! Looks more like one of those bladeless fans. (But I love the design!)

(Works just fine on Brave Browser, which itself is based on Chromium. It also shows up in Opera, also based on Chromium. Both being used on Elementary OS, a version of Linux based on Ubuntu. I also tried opening it in Brave and Firefox on MX Linux on my laptop in both Brave, and Firefox. So I think you're good.)

(Have you tried turning it off and on again?)

Have you been watching Star Trek: The Lower Decks? I'm finding it enormously amusing.

I know, I know, it's supposed to be a loop completely around the ship. But I've seen a lot of ships with that design, so I was going for something new in the engine nacelle department, so... something something combination of Alcubierre's ideas and Feynman's early quantum gravity theories plus something something Calabi-Yao manifold manipulation M-theory something something LOOK OVER THERE A MONKEY and... the Alcubierre-Calabi-Feynman or ACF drive. Boom.

Yeah, let's just say I liked the look.

And I'm loving Lower Decks. Feels more like "real Trek" than Discovery or the Kelvin rebooty-Trek movies. And they have a Kzinti crewman!

(Whatever was making this page fail to load only in Safari must have been on my end.)

Oops, that was me. Bedlam guy. Forgot to log in.

A monkey? Where?!?

(Yeah, I figured that was you.)

I used to be a big fan of Safari, but Apple has kept changing it and ruining my experience. They've kept changing OS X too, to make it more and more like iOS which I hate with a passion. That's why almost exactly a year ago I wiped Mac OS from my iMac and installed Elementary. I've been pretty happy with Elementary on my laptop for about four years, so I figured "Why keep fighting Mac OS when it pisses me off almost daily?" I'd already quit using Safari years ago. First I went to Vivaldi and liked it, then switched to Brave because all the features I had to use extensions for in Vivaldi are built into Brave. I also occasionally fire up Opera to see how it's working. My experience with FireFox has not been good lately. It's slow, and a resource hog.

But I've been fooling around with various Linux versions for 20 years now, and I'm comfortable in this ecosystem. My only real complaint is I don't like the options for replacing Illustrator. Inkscape is nowhere near as good. Libredraw is almost a decent page layout program like InDesign, but its drawing tools are lacking. All that said, mostly I just need to sit down and force myself to learn new ways of doing things. Between Krita and Gimp, image manipulation is just as good (and arguably more powerful) than Photoshop. It's only in the vector graphics arena that I'm not happy.

I use Safari ONLY to have a second browser open to see what the site looks like to someone who isn't logged in as the owner -- it's my "is the new comic up?" browser window. I mainly use Firefox, but 80% of the time if I have a problem and need to restart my iMac Firefox is the culprit. I was just forced to update MacOS to (do a thing related to work that would help identify me too much), and I've got too much sunk cost fallacy -- I MEAN, too much invested in programs I need for either comics or professionally (including drawing stuff -- I've got a big "legit" cartooning project that still MIGHT come through). So, I've been a Mac guy since the SE, and I'm sticking with it despite Tom Cook's best efforts to drive me away.

I was an Apple dork since I took BASIC on an Apple II in high school. At the time my Mom used one at work too, but her boss was at the convention where they debuted the Macintosh and bought one on the spot. A year later he bought an upgrade and handed his old Mac down to her and she brought home her Apple II. This went on for four or five years, so I had a fairly recent Mac to play with through the 90's. I bought my first new Mac (an Indigo G3 iMac) in 1999.

Krita is available for Mac OS as well as Windows and Linux, and I can't recommend it enough. It was designed from the ground up for drawing and painting, and a lot of artists are switching to it. And it's free! Worth giving a try. Unlike GIMP, the learning curve for Krita is pretty easy. Where it doesn't do things the Photoshop way, the Krita way is actually better.

I've managed to bugger up GIMP on my main computer and I've lost all my tool palettes. No clue where they went or how to get them back. I suspect a program delete and reinstall is my only option at this point.

I'll totally give it a try — I'm always looking for alternatives to Ps Elements (I got a great price on it at Costco years ago, but it's getting more and more unreliable with every OS upgrade).

I was an Atari 400 and then 800 dork in high school. Typing in Basic programs with my dad is one of my fondest memories of that era... it took hours to enter them and then debug our faulty transcribing. Totally worth it.

I'm all for repurposing concept art.
