Just like you can't inherit your Mom's nose job, if Mom's a Djinn you get still get Mom's Sterling soul shell, just like she had when she was born.
That said, just like your Mom's drinking while pregnant can still have side effects, Mom being a Djinn causes a few side effects as well -- hence "Djinned" babies.0 likes0 hitsSep 18, 2013 | Rachel Keslensky of Last Res0rt
- CassandraI'm making a webcomic of my own, and I was wondering: do you do both the sketch and the lineart for pages of KiLA iLO on paper, or do you just do the sketch on paper then scan it in and do the lineart digitally? Also, do you have any advice for me on maki (by aaronanimated)I can't really advise you too specifically on this because there's no one right way to make a comic. I've done it both ways you mentioned in the past and currently I'm doing a traditional sketch and digital lineart, but you should experiment and find what works for you. It might be traditional sketch and lineart, it might be a digital sketch... you can ink a digital sketch digitally or print it and ink it... it's up to you. A great deal of that depends on how you plan to color, too.0 likes0 hitsAug 13, 2013 | Cassandra of KiLA iLO

- Rachel KeslenskyCeligo seems like a pretty big deal - is that because it's Celeste-ruled, or is it the head of a big interplanetary union/empire, or what?Celigo is a big deal because of the Endless.
Prior to the Rise of Celigo, the Endless were the only unifying force of the Celeste -- what power the Celeste had was usually localized to different regions on various planets, with little to no coordination with Celeste on other worlds outside of the Endless providing a convenient out if any of these regions ended up in trouble or toppled (Extract Celeste, put 'em somewhere else, lather, rinse repeat). The Endless were still powerful -- the largest of the extraplanetary organizations, in fact -- but without a planet of their own they could only exert so much force on other worlds.
With the Rise of Celigo, the Endless found they could maintain much of their old influence on other worlds as well as that of Celigo's by leveraging the one major asset of the Endless, their large spacefaring astry (i.e. the Star Organization). Since the Star Org was self-sustaining without Celigo thanks to having various factions and recruitment points all across the Connection, Celigo can now support a much larger force than other worlds can sustain, which naturally threatens the balance between Celigo and these other worlds.
Whether you want to call them the Celigan Empire or the Endless Empire depends on how much you want to (de)moralize your troops.1 likes0 hitsJun 03, 2013 | Rachel Keslensky of Last Res0rt

- Rachel KeslenskyIs there any chance of getting Last Res0rt webisodes? some potter puppet pals style flash even?There is SOME chance. Keep in mind, when I say "some", I mean it's in the same realm of possibility of me coding up an android app -- it becomes far more likely the more I get told I need to add some experience in it to my portfolio. The more I can break a task down into granular bits and pieces, the better.
(It may or may not help that J.P. (BugPudding) has a heap more experience at it than I do... helps that he knows what he's talking about and could teach me, doesn't help that he's probably a lot better at it than I'd be.)0 likes0 hitsJan 08, 2013 | Rachel Keslensky of Last Res0rt
- No idea, I expect there's a specific number of tweet load requests that can be sent to the server before displaying the message that no more can be loaded. I tend to find mine can go back maybe 3-6 hours depending on how active people in my feed have been. And that's about 775 people.
That said at times I've been able to load tweets that are a day or more old - so it may simply be a matter of process time that your requests get from the server based on how many requests it's processing at that time.1 likes10 hitsDec 26, 2012 | T III of Fera
- T IIIDoes anyone know if it's possible to, first, FIND a copy of standalone Win 7 still, and second, overwrite a machine that has factory Win 8 with it? I do NOT want a Win 8 computer, but I DO want a new PC this winter--old one's slowing down badly. (by Chrysicat)I'd say check Amazon/Ebay - but you'll likely also still find copies of Win 7 on sites that sell computer components for self builds such as scan.co.uk.
As for installing it, I assume it's the same as with any previous version of windows - stick the Win 7 disc in, reboot the PC, choose to install Win 7 and format the old install. If you don't already have partitions set up on your hard drive I'd suggest that you create two - one for your windows install and the rest for your documents/programs. That way any time you need to reinstall your operating system you can avoid losing your docs/programs.1 likes10 hitsDec 26, 2012 | T III of Fera

- Rachel KeslenskyWould you rather cut off and eat your own legs (to survive) or die of starvation? (by alexds1)I'm pretty sure that, similar to drinking your own urine to survive, the added energy your body requires to continue past that point (assuming no improvement in the foreseeable future) makes it not worth it unless you're working to a literal deadline here.
Also, what about intermediary solutions like excising portions of the muscle / fatty tissue vs. just hacking indiscriminately?
I assume I'm waiting for a rescue squad in this scenario -- i.e. that my legs will not be necessary from this point in otherwise -- but I would suspect that I may as well preserve the skeletal structure as long as I can in the hopes that the muscles can be replaced when I'm rescued (through organ donation or regrowth), vs. skeletal structure (which can't).
If I'm not holding out hope for eventual rescue at this point, I can't imagine the added pain of amputation in exchange for a little more time alive is going to be worth it.0 likes0 hitsNov 04, 2012 | Rachel Keslensky of Last Res0rt

- CassandraWhat's that around Kila's right middle finger, I wonder. If there's anything I've learned about this comic, it's that there is no such thing as an insignificant detail.That's actually treatment for her injured hand: http://theworldisyours.smackj eeves.com/comics/1526786/thunk/
According to my sources, erm, my sources discovered through the magical oracle of Google, the appropriate treatment for a broken knuckle is to tape it to the neighboring finger (although Kila is proooobably not getting much benefit out of the treatment because she's moving her hand around a lot).
When I was a little kid watching Saturday morning cartoons it always bugged the heck out of me when you'd see a character all wound up in casts after some kind of slapstick moment and they'd be healed in the next shot... so the tape is there to maintain continuity.0 likes0 hitsOct 15, 2012 | Cassandra of KiLA iLO
