I didn't have the heat on at my place, and I was trying to boot my system when I smelled a burnt odor from the hard drive. Just recently picked up a used one.

Furrykef, if it's any consolation, I just recently burnt my hard drive to a crisp.

Merpy Holimas ya roustabouts!

@  furrykef : (11 December 2020 - 10:23 AM)

Welp. I'm finally attempting to copy files from my old hard drive -- the one that got fried -- to my new one, and things aren't looking good at all.

The graphics card is taken from my old machine and is currently giving me a hell of a lot of trouble because I'm trying to get Vulkan support in Linux...

This, except I haven't bought an optical drive or UPS yet: https://pcpartpicker...ef/saved/vsyQqs

What kind of beast did you put together for yourself then Kef?

@  furrykef : (04 December 2020 - 07:41 AM)

Woo! I'm on my new machine.

@  furrykef : (02 December 2020 - 04:04 PM)

Now that all the parts have arrived, I'm not in any mood to actually build the PC.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Welp. The good news is my RAM arrived today. The bad news is I'd misread the package tracking, so my mobo and fan are coming late.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Groan. All my parts are supposed to get here today, except my RAM shipped late, so it will get here Wednesday. And there's no DDR4 RAM anywhere else in the house.

All this chat about failing hardware reminds me that I gotta update my GPU n SSD this year. Who'dve thought an M.2 boot drive could get filled entirely by sodding Windows updates >.<

@  tiff15 : (21 November 2020 - 12:28 PM)

computer fans are starting to wonk out, so Im using a laptop for now...Hi all!

@  furrykef : (18 November 2020 - 05:56 AM)

The bad news is my hard drive is busted. So I'm currently on a Linux Mint Live CD. Ain't that fun?

@  furrykef : (18 November 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Whew! I'm finally on my PC after three weeks of not being able to use it.

FUS should bring back the artist galleries.

I'm sure I wasn't the only kid and Sonic fan who was confused that Tails didn't appear in Sonic Underground, not even as a small minor character. By the time when Knuckles made his debut in a Sonic animated series. I thought Tails would appear sometime later in that show but it didn't happen. What did you think back when and What do you think now?

Likely the choice was done outta the inclusion of Sonic's siblings.  If Sonic already had a brother, it would be awkward for him to treat Tails as his little brother.  


It could have also been that the game was influenced by Sonic and Knuckles which has no Tails.

Tails might not've been featured in the show, but he still could've excited within the series' universe.

Sonic mentions having friends in the resistance before he reunited with his siblings. Since King Acorn (or rather a statue of him) and a place resembling Knothole Village are both clearly shown to exist, it's possible that Sally and the rest of the FF gang were also present. We just never got to see them.

Likewise, Robotnik mentions having underlings (Sub-Bosses?) stationed in different districts across the globe. This might explain Snively's absence in the show.

I always was disappointed that Tails wasn't in Sonic Underground, but I think you all could be right that Tails does exist off screen somewhere. Sonic could have found his siblings later on and decided to go underground with them to catch up and fight to finally free the world of Robotnik's control.

But then there's the whole, Sonic's royalty thing. But isn't Sally royalty? So if they both exist in the same universe, wouldn't there be a conflict of interest as far as Kingdoms go?
Unless...the great war was between Sonic's Kingdom and the Kingdom of Acorn. Sonic and Sally were betrothed by Queen Aleena and King Acorn to make peace between the two Kingdoms. The only canon that implies the great war was between Mobians and Overlanders was in the comics. That's definitely a possibility, and would make for an interesting crossover. 

But Underground's Robotnik seems milder than SatAM's. At the very least, Underground's Robotnik would spare aristocratic elites from Robotization as long as they did what they were told, but SatAM's wouldn't spare anyone. He wasn't satisfied if he didn't have completely control over someone's free will.

I've always believed Underground was meant to be a sequel originally but became it's own thing in development. That's why there's a prophecy about Robotnik, statues of the Acorn family but no family members, why Robotnik looks almost the exact same, so on so on.

I believe Sonic in Underground was supposed to be Sonic Junior, and the Queen would have originally been Sally. The lack of the other familiar faces is they were reworked, but would have been supporting cast.
