Also happy arbitrary forum post count for me. In the immortal words of Randall Munroe: "Wow - just 24 to go until a big round-number milestone!"

I'm reaching the end of my break, and making a new years resolution to return to regular development work (as well as forum and blog maintenance), starting tomorrow.

Blog posting will also resume tomorrow, I have a post I wrote weeks ago ready to go. Prior warning: I wrote it with a different persona, attempted to re-write it with my usual persona, gave up and called it done, so it's a bit weird. Which is to say, probably less weird than my usual, because this persona isn't completely batshit and doesn't own an Orbital EMP Cannon*. Which is... exactly what makes it weird? Well, that and the third-person self-deprecation. Does it count as self-deprecation if I'm using a fictional character to do it? I'm sure there's a trope for that.

Oh nevermind, you'll see for yourself. Brace for weirdness.

Yay, I'm so excited to hear that the blog is starting up again! Also, happy arbitrary post number/date!

May is basically a fictionalization of the persona I drop into when debating folk online: relentlessly logical and polite, but not particularly assertive. Generally somewhere between Spock, Kif and Zhu Lee, but also sarcastic when annoyed.

At least until he gets the anti-cannibalism genes working right. It's usually not a good evolutionary strategy to eat your nearest and dearest, as it results in a high mortality rate for creatures with those genes.

I know, I was trying to be sarcastic, but this being the Internet it's kind of hard to notice.

On one hand, I succeeded in putting my mental image of May on paper. On the other hand, I gave a sterling example of why I shouldn't have inflicted the same on poor Quasar...

No, but it will however make a sound somewhere between a dying rabbit and a vuvuzela.

I think this may have been the first piece fanart to depict quasar!

This incident is still not as memorable as the time his orbital station flooded with black mana venom though.
