spinning, spinning, spinning 'round

SMBC, overall, has nothing even approaching relevant humor, but this one put me in mind of Caledon. Or at least, Caledonian attire.

(There's also a red button at the bottom. Hover the mouse over that.)

Also, I just discovered Repo has its own TV Tropes page! And boy, is it exhaustive. Pavi, you never told me you stuttered! Tch.

And for no other reason than the evolution of special effects...this. It is, quite simply, stunning.

Mr. Excalibur Longstaff has finally united the Steamlands under one forum site--to date, this covers Caledon, Steelhead, Steeltopia, the Confederation of Democratic Sims, Winterfell, and New Babbage, though there are also mentions of Blue Mars, perhaps to come. Several of these sim nations have their own Nings, but this one unites them all.

Finally, from the NPIRL blog, comes reports of an insanely expensive--but quite possibly insanely worthwhile--new dance HUD. I'll have to see if I can test it out with someone, and see how it works, but...it sounds like it might well be worth the money.

Both versions are priced to include the cost of buying the dances outright; each HUD is therefore, a custom work, created just for you or your club. Fascinating idea.

And yes...call off the hunting dogs...I'm back. Still working out details, still lack one computer, so trade time (with the RL partner) on the one I have up and running now. But back.

The comic was very funny. Except... *looks in mirror* ...uh-oh. Now the secret is out. :)

Yes, well. Gloves will hide the bared wrists? Or something... :)
