    I love this! and also with a backstory….claiming credits units seems a little cheeky though ?

    I am interested in your choice of moment. I thought about this gloved hand moment as comic too and yet did not make the link to turn it into a comic. Clever!…

    Behind the Cupboard, a Comic


    After finding some old photos I dug around the apartment some more and found a page of an old comic:

    Something told me this was no ordinary comic, I sneaked into the General’s room and, with shaking fingers feed it into the machine:


    As the paper emerged I grabbed …

    The Resignment Village


    I’ve settled down in my apartment now. Poking around in different corners I found some old photos of the Village, I’ve put them on the corkboard in the kitchen. I suspect they were taken by a previous resident, the photos look quite old, maybe 40 or 50 years I’d guess, …

    While certain aspects of The General seemed familiar on my first watching this week, I recall being surprised when David Kernohan tweeted out about this poster and the education-themed episode back in June. I’d certainly not remembered there was an education-focused episode at the time, and am ready to go …

    All the dreaming and reflection is paying off!

    This new glitch poster making will help influence residents sub-consciusly. Hmmm….sometimes the quiet ones are the most dangerous ones. I will be reporting to the hospital that you are just in your bungalow watching TV. Or will I?…

    We don’t need no general education



    Interesting happenings in the village this week, there seem to be a lot of ‘learning’ going on. As I watch number six get into trouble I am thinking my decision to be less confronting was a good idea. However this episode is taking the committee well inside my wheelhouse. …

    Adjusting the Set


    As I’ve mentioned I’ve been mostly  keeping to my lodgings in The Village, not going out, thinking and dreaming.

    Sometimes when I am half awake, watch tv, strange things happen.


    There might be a clue in this ds106 Assignments as to what is going on, and I guess that …

    Watch Repeat, Don’t Repeat


    Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    George Santayana

    I’ve got news for Mr. Santayana: we’re doomed to repeat the past no matter what. That’s what it is to be alive.

    I though I was hitting week one in the village running, I’ve …

    Here is the village there is a constant battle to avoid giving any information away. From a ds106 Assignments should come with information, a prisoner106 dilemma?

    To start making good the many assignments with a lack of supporting information here, I’ve made a few brief tests on exporting gifs and …

    Dreaming of Tina


    Last night Tina put an idea in my head.

    We escaped

    Then have a radio road trip:

    Rocking along to #DS106Radio

    When I woke up I rubbed my eyes and went to the window:

    No information, this assignment is not a number.

    (I miss the opportunity to change the car …

    Prisoner106 Supercuts by numbers


    In a continued attempted to find meaning in Prisoner106 I am continuing to analyse the first reel of the surveillance footage by various means.

    I had previously downloaded Videogrep a tool for making supercut videos from video and subtitle (.srt) files.

    First I had to find a subtitle file for …

    A Touch of Don


    Apologies for the large size of this gif 1.5MB, but 52 frames!

    The offshoot of ds106 that is #giffight has given me a lot of fun. Every so often the giffight tumble posts an image with the invite for anyone to use it to create an animated gif from. …

    Free the Groom


    Now this is weird.

    Given we can’t waste time I dug out a processing script I’d used before. I can’t recall where I got the original, or what changes I made, but it looks like I simplified it a lot and exported a series of frames to gifs. Stitched these …

    Cutting Noir Corners


    When you have been in this game as long as I have you get a little slow. No way I can keep up with the young operatives without cutting some corners.

    We were asked to keep an eye on Davey Gordon a pug without much of a chin. I looked …

    You better watch your step.
    Those guys over the pond are pretty dangerous, not just demanding! Make sure you get that dame Tina to watch your back.
    I am watching closely and on the trail of this Frank guy……

    Character Cutting


    So Burtus was on my case pretty fast last week, trying to get a fix on me. I guess I didn’t drop enough clues. The deal was I should reveal some history, some of my favorite places, that might have given her a clue. For the folk less agile that …

    It’s Late, it’s Noir


    It’s Late, it’s Noir

    I flew in from a week south of the border the other night and took the long drive home. Waiting in my messages were a couple of odd ones. Burtis, Bond and Groom making unreasonabled demands.
    I was going to ignore it, not let these three …
