What with depression being caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain and all that.

I don't think it's quite as simple as that.

Very curious to find out how this is broken down in QC-world. What with depression being caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain and all that. What's the reason for AI who don't have those, and are otherwise able to have maintenance done to fix a large variety of issues; the human versions of which would be debilitating, rather than mildly inconvenient.

Roko's disassociation, I never questioned. She's a conscious being in an unfamiliar body under traumatic circumstances. But given what we know of depression, I'm very interested to see how the root cause differs for AI.

sorry Lee, no idea




so i know i'm, like, decades late, but Quake? pretty good. i can see why people were into it.
i mostly missed this entire genre back in the Doom, Quake, et al era. so the remake/release/whatever of Quake that came out in the last year or whatever is a nice time to go back. and y'know, even on Normal it's ...not exactly *challenging*, but it's certainly satisfying, frenetic, and makes me wonder if I even want to try Hard. For those that know, I've done main campaign and Scourge of Armagon, and am in episode 1 of Dissolution of Eternity


Bloodroots is a Hotline Miami-alike, in the sense that it's a one-hit fast fighter. I have some distinct squabbles with it, and was *very tired* of some segments by the time i beat them. but overall, worthwhile if you're into this sort of thing.


Finished Boyfriend Dungeon some time ago. Not the hardest of its sort by any means. gonna have to replay it at one point and make some different decisions. several interesting stories and cuties of several kinds to date

I think it would be very hard for any piece of art to NOT be autobiographical in some way.

Re. new comic: Faye, no. It would likely be better to send him to Winslow's group and then work from there. I feel for him though: I was also always picked last for any team-based motor coordination sims activities.

it does seem to support the argument that Jeph has started writing his autobiography in disconnected sections via various established and new characters.

Started? 

I suspect there's a lot of Jeph's life tied up in his characters in many ways... but the "buy an 8-string guitar" bit felt especially so, and that was some time back.  (And a look at footnote 159 on Marten's page on the wiki confirms that suspicion.)  2418 is almost half the strip's lifetime ago.

Edited for getting Marten's name wrong.  Oops.
