    Oh sure, we were trying not to use our old characters, but every movie game is required to have a cameo appearance by R2D2 and C-3PO.

    For those who haven't checked, they fixed the image file on yesterday's comic.

    I was just thinking about the square-cube law after seeing some giant robots in a movie really not seeming like they're as large as they're supposed to be physics-wise, although my first thought was about acceleration from gravity. Stay-Puft got it right.

    Ah, yes, the whole "barrier" thing from this massive action sequence.

    I wonder how the Comic Irregulars are going to handle communicating through the shield. In the movie, IIRC, the shield didn't stop communication between rebels inside or outside, but it did stop them from sending very large files (like the Death Star plans). So, basically, the shield results in a low internet bandwidth. That seemed kind of forced to me in the movie.

    Man, how has the Empire not tripped over their shoelaces (which they tied together themselves) and fallen into a beartrap in an acid bath by now?

    Good job, Jim. Make sure the gate is closed so that the fight will be more difficult.

    Why would the imperials need to escape? It's not like anyone would blow up their entire facility with the Peace Moon.

    Keybounce, you cannot tell with the shots used but those are not swords. They are two of those batons-with-lights-at-the-end that airport staffs use to help airplanes land. We have seen people do that in the OT.

    I think the more pertinent point is that they were on the back of the person whose uniform she stole.

    Y'know, looking at that comic again...

    They shot those dudes. Then stole their uniforms.

    Shouldn't there be great big smoking holes in them?

    Pete getting half the XP despite not really doing much reminds me of the Dragon Magazine/SSaDT OOTS comic where Belkar complains about having to share XP with Elan.

    I'm not sure where they are going with this, besides a chance for Jim to completely forget that he is carting around a crystal with all his family history data in it.

    In the movie they spend some time figuring out which tape they want. They have a project name, but they cannot get all the tapes. More drama is added by the difficulties in actually getting the tape they want.

    I just realized that "Sciri", other than the obvious reference, is also pretty close to "scire", which is Latin for "to know", something fitting of a digital assistant. Well played.

    The old password? Why would you bother storing the old password? It's not like any site is going to say "That password was changed two days ago", or any sort of "Prove that you are the real owner of this account" - "Enter the prior password (must have been valid for at least three months)".

    Oh, wait, Google actually does something very similar, and they basically implemented this sort of thing after accounts were stolen. So ...

    Also, some systems store X old passwords so as to make sure you're using something different.

    I hate when they do that. If they get compromised, instead of giving away one username/PW I use, they give away all of the passwords I rotate through.

    Aww, crap, neither guest commentator wrote anything (yet?) That means the rebellion must have hacked in to Darths and Droids and stole the commentary!

    On the subject of the crane games, I was in Naruto not long ago, where there was a sweet potato claw game (here's a crummy picture I took). I love Naruto's awesome "kintoki" sweet potatoes, so I only barely managed not to waste however much money on the thing. Japan is truly on top in this field.
