Your sister? You want me to ask my sister to join too? Then we could be nagged to death in our only place of refuge.

Looks like a club to me. >:(>:(

Hah! New Page!

EDIT
Aaaaannnnnnddddd, this thread has reached Atari status! 2600 replies!

Says the blob with the club. It was your job to bring them here.

"blob with the club" LMFAO! I laughed so hard at that!

Personally, I think it looks like the blob licking his eye but... ;D

Wow, you guys are a bunch of meanies. >:( :P

So I ordered an SSD the other day and it arrived this afternoon (thanks to Edgar and Chris for answering my SSD-related questions). I put Fallout: New Vegas on it and am really happy with the results: loading is super quick! :D New Vegas isn't a game plagued with long load times, but I've been itching to play it again, so it made for a good first impression. I'm looking forward to trying it out on games that do have long load times, like Fallout 4, DOOM 2016, and Watch Dogs 2 soon.

That's an eyepatch, not a club. >:(

It looks like a raindrop to me. After a monkey threw poop at it. :-/ I never was any good with pixel art.

What would be the point if she wasn't actually interested in Allegro or at least programming in general? We've had a couple of those here before and they became toxic because they resented the community being male-oriented. And it's not male-oriented because of some grand conspiracy, but because the subject matter is just generally more interesting to males... Nothing stops girls from participating. Other than themselves perhaps.

Bambams should invite his fiance here. ;) Also, happy 1000th day of this thread's existence! :D

For the aforementioned reasons there's no point. I invited her to IRC for a while because she was interested in what I was spending so much time with. And a few members enjoyed picking her brain about me. But she was never overly interested in it. She doesn't really have the time for it. She can't be bothered to go back again. I think the only reason she joined in the first place was because she saw that I was talking about her and she wanted to see what I was saying and be able to respond to the conversation. But after a while I think she realized that I wasn't being malicious or anything and lost interest. It's just venting ffs. Healthy activity. >:(

It's tough to make anything with so few pixels.

I wholeheartedly agree. I've tried to get my sister interesting in computers, programming, and video games, but it's just not her thing. Men and women are different, and it just so happens that tech in general is something men gravitate toward more often than women. Nothing sexist about that.

I think programming is kind of a niche thing in general. I've tried to get my brother and other male friends interested, but they generally lack the passion or interest necessary to get their feet wet. I did manage to get one friend to switch over to Linux though, and he's been rocking that for a few years now. 8-)

It's up-scaled from 8x8 pixels.

Okay. From now on I'm going to call you Pirate Blob.

Okay, but I'm going to call you Edgar Ravioli in exchange.

You live in Vermont, right? I can walk there in as little as 488 hours. Let's fight IRL. >:(

How do you make gifs quickly? I've only ever converted a video format to GIF before.

That looks great, Neil! :D

I made my GIF using GIMP. It took about an hour to do all of the frames.
