Announcing: The AnthroPC Handbook
« on: 02 May 2005, 06:50 »

Hello everyone...

From the creator of the QC Wallpaper Gallery - comes a new creation exclusively for the QC community.

Presenting......

The AnthroPC Handbook

Inspired by countless topics here in the forums about how AnthroPCs actually work, for example their connectivity, disk drives, system specs etc. - The AnthroPC Handbook is a place for everyone to jot down their ideas on this new generation of Personal Computer :)

There's obviously not much there right now, but it's a Wiki - so if you can think of an article or page you'd like to write about AnthroPCs then go ahead.

Make your way to http://www.sionide.net/anthropc/

Be creative, be imaginative, be technical. I know you're all so good at that!! Comments and suggestions most welcome, I need someone to create a logo for the top left-hand corner too!

Anyway, that's that. So.... Enjoy.

:) :D :)

hmmm... a section on "interacting with you AnthroPC" with example dialogs would be useful...

and and modifications you could make, including precautions to take if your AnthroPC doesn't like them. (reference to one of pintsize's friends who was painted and given a glass panelled chest)

i was reading the handbook and noticed that it says that anthropc's cant conume food, but there is  a strip in which pintsize eats spaghetti sauce and then poops it out all over the couch. there is also an explanation of how he can taste things, but it must be his new chassis that allows him to eat things now. i will have to look up the strip and try my hand at writing something unless someone else gets to it first

the strip i am talking about is this one after faye cuts her hand and has to have stitches

_grace_ - go for it, write about it... make it up! it'll be cool..

kaidia avari - yep, we need to build on stuff like this then... edit it out and replace it with what it should be!!

I just sorted out the main page.. bit of a tidy up. Added things to new pages instead of using the main page for everything, looks better now. Check out the disclaimer, hehe.

added some stuff about clothes, tidied up the grammar in the section on lasers, added an introduction paragraph, and came up with the concept of "AnthrOS" - the operating system.

Haha!! Switchblade you rock!! I knew you'd like this ;)

Any budding artists out there come up with a logo for it??

You have a 135x135 canvas to work with (.png format, please use transparent background) Ideally it should have a picture of pintsize and the words "AnthroPC Handbook" on it...

Heh, Anthrix.. ahhh the fun is never-ending. I've said it before but I'll say it again, a die-cast model of Pintsize (lifesize?) would the COOLEST thing jeph could sell!

TEST.


Wanted to see if transparency held, and if text was legible before adding any more stuff in, and having to do it all over....

Though... that DOES look good like that....

Feedback, Questions, comments, all appreciated.

Text can be changed, colored, font swapped, ETC. I just used an 20pt LOXX cause it looked kinda cool... I have not rasterized it yet.

Uhh... Okay, if it gets slash dotted and swamped with hits I'll have to take it offline, my bandwidth isn't limitless...

That's why I was hoping jeph wouldn't link it from the main site! (He hasn't yet)

This month in the first 6 days, I shifted more bandwidth than the entire month of Jan.

No worries though, I probably won't take it down - it's too cool.


Edit: Forget that, there's a possibility i'll be getting upgraded to 50gb a month so :P

If you do get swamped i MAY be able to get my buddy to let me scam some space from his server.

I'd be a ProQStudio.net address tho....

and it would have to be PHP.....



PS:
If you like what you see at ProQ, i can do/redo the graphics for your page.
I do site design, web graphics, and a small amount of programming (PHP, http, and Java)

Heh, not that many...

Anyway, it matters not! I scored a 50gb /month dedicated server.. No worries at all. Once it's on there, I'd be prepared for linkage off the news postings I reckon, I'll get in touch with Jeph when the time comes!

This was a brilliant idea.  I couldn't help myself, and had to add some tackiness to the accessories...but the idea of AnthroBling was too hard to pass up.

The handbook needs technical diagrams, showing the location of the holding tank, laser, power supply, RAM, etc.

And not diagrams done in Paint, either.

Ok what idiot, IP 24.1.73.236, deleted the table of contents?

compare last edit to current.

I know you use comcast, and you use the Easternshore/Texas gateway.

Don't write about them on here then. Write about them on the wiki!!

We need some more content and less typo-editing!

Okay, carry bag and fake hair on accessories and personality patches in the personality section. Feel free to change spelling mistakes or grammatical errors, or the whole thing if it sounds crap...

No, someone has just been mindlessly deleting things. Vandalising a wiki is NOT cool.

Would people mind if I enabled having to register to make changes? It doesn't take 2 seconds to register and it makes it easier to ban people and stuff like that. It would at least help with the problem...

It's either someone from this board, someone who found the link through the wikipedia page or a bot. You think I should take the link off the wikipedia? :(

Edit: I think I've fixed it and from the look of things, it was someone who didn't know what they were doing because previously they made some good edits. So, please be careful and don't wipe the pages whoever you are!

I have to add something sometime.. wow...

Ok i added a rough Malicous Software page but i'm afraid in the process i made a bit of mess. There are two pages "Virus" and "Malicios Software" which are dead and empty atm. They should probably be deleted, sorry :(

Anyone can add stuff, just click "edit this page" obviously it'd help if you read QC, so you know about Pintsize etc..

Edit: I like the Malicious Software page, well done - Keep up the good work :)

Keep adding to it as much as you can! I'm sure the 'underwear' incident from todays strip can be worked in somewhere ;)

i like your additions, very good.
Hopefully i can add some more fluid stuff this weekend, i was mildy distracted while typing that page by a headache that laste on and of for about a week (some of us get all the luck :-/)
I do hope the underwear incedent can get worked in somewhere.

(edit)
Added a brief and rough note to clothing (influenced by todays strip). Needs refining for sure. (resist temptation to say "fo sho")

A syblings section needed? Owning more than one AnthroPC, brothers, sisters, arguing, ganging up on you/unsuspecting passers by ,etc.
Should fit under the "Relationships" heading i guess. Maybe create a "social" parent section, put everything else, sub-pages and all underneath it?

( edit (again) )

There was a mention somewhere (i think) of AnthroPCs being bisexual (reference to ps's last packet sharing session) somewhere but i can't seem to find it now, anyone help? Wanted to mention c3po (cus he's gay) and ps2 bots (also gay) (i'm sure someone will get the reference)
