You'd probably have to have your own webcomic to really answer this. I only know Carpe Diem moved to http://www.webcomicsnation.com after it was canceled, but I couldn't say if it's a good site or if it fits your needs.

Actually I still can't figure that one out... I mean... if all frames are equally valid then how does the universe know which twin actually did the accelerating? Well, the acceleration can be measured. As long as the twins move away from each other at constant speed, all frames are equally valid. A...

Since this is one of the few forums where I doubt I'll get ambushed for grammatical nitpicking... The satellite revolves around the Earth. (I'm sure it rotates, too, so that the bottom is always facing the Earth, but my guess is that its revolution was the important part of the discussion here.) Ac...

What I wonder is, what keeps the generators in place? A lot of the energy probably goes into keeping them where they are, relative to the surface.

The top is a small mass that rotates around a big mass, the earth. The earth is rotating itself around its axis, which is perpendicular to the equator. The top has to move to the same direction as the rotation of the earth, otherwise it wouldn't be fixed relative to the station at the bottom (and I ...

You can bypass Unit Zero by selecting "Umluat House Two: Intro" (sic) in the dropdown box. You can bypass the hiatus bits (though I like to read them) by selecting "My Big Fat Gay Wedding". I think those are the only longer interruptions to the Umlaut House story.

This is a really beautiful comic, not only because of the lovely conclusion, but also because of all of the fragments of information that leave a lot open for the imagination of the reader. For example, what was that dress that Cal loved (on Amanda, I presume), but was embarrased to say so? I'd imag...

They all have in common that they have a "temperature"* that "cools down", eventually settling on a "solution". I would assume that it will have some mind-altering effect on Cal and Amanda, either temporary or permanent. * in case of simulated annealing, the temperature is a probability, or is used ...

It's also an algorithmic technique for searching solutions in a large problem space. Just saying. ;)

Cal must have gone through ASCII's code amazingly fast. Although I guess Amanda took her time, too.

Semi-xposted from LJ: The probability of outright hiatus for UH2 in the coming year is now pretty low. It is possible still that I'll drop the frequency down to weekly, but also that is fairly unlikely. The decision isn't final, but the odds are pretty against work stoppages on UH2. Also, welcome a...

UH is easily my favourite comic, so that's what I'd love to see. But the real question is what you would like to do, and that's something I cannot answer.
