The Thing About Pesky SGML | GEGATT

The Thing About Pesky SGML | GEGATT

sgmlBelieve it or not, and regardless of your level of familiarity with the acronym, you are beholden to SGML standards every day of your life. SGML stands for standard generalized markup language and it allows any computer or data driven system to look at some simple tags and coding and interpret that coding into proper formatting. The reason SGML is so important is that both HTML and XML are…

Back in the day, when cell phones were more of a commodity than a necessity, and by necessity while I pay for an internet connection via the cable company and not cable or telephone and I haven’t spoken to a LAN line phone company in years I’ve consistently maintained my cell phone and upgraded with technology and time, it was quickly clear that tethering…

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt

Even if Capcom may not pump out megaman games quite like they used to, the world will never lack spiritual successors to the blue bomber. Azure Striker Gunvolt is a modern day Megaman X, fasted paced running and gunning included, that manages to carve out it’s own place in Megaman copy-cats with some unique mechanics to keep things fun and fresh.

Azure Striker Gunvolt, a 2D action platformer, was…

Marvel cancels ‘Elektra’ and it’s a bummer

Marvel cancels ‘Elektra’ and it’s a bummer

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 11.28.26 AMAfter just five issues, Elektra is dead.

Marvel cancelled the comic last week, written by William H. Blackman, with stunning art by Michael Del Mundo. A source at my local comic shop tells me there are two more issues (I only see one online) and then that’s it.

As someone who has been reading the book since its debut in April, I am disappointed. Elektrais one of the female-led titles that Marvel…

The CosView - So They Say You Shouldn’t Cosplay at BCC 2014

The CosView – So They Say You Shouldn’t Cosplay at BCC 2014

This year, The CosView and Geek Eccentric attended Boston Comic Con 2014. Packed with cosplays and tv heroes, BCC was an energetic and fun filled con that was great for all ages. The CosView photographer, Lazzaro Studios, stated that BCC “was the best comic con” he had been to all year, and we had been to a handful of them.

Covering a con is always an enjoyment for The CosView. Not only do we get…

Thor is a Woman But This Woman Couldn’t Care Less

Thor is a Woman But This Woman Couldn’t Care Less

Thor_5

Thor is soon to be a woman, as a woman I’m expected to stand up and cheer. I’m not impressed. In fact, I’m even less impressed because Marvel chose The View as the place to make that announcement. I smell a PR bid.

Also The Falcon, aka Sam Wilson, is taking over as Captain America from Rogers which means, as the headlines proclaimed loud and long, that “a black man will carry the Captain…

American Anime RWBY Is Back and Is That Wolverine?

American Anime RWBY Is Back and Is That Wolverine?

Okay, Most of us (anime fans) have acknowledged the technically RWBYis not an anime in the sense that the term was originally born. The show has been called an anime due to the fact that it is done with an art style that is heavily anime / manga influenced and the producers, Rooster Teeth, pay more than a bit of attention to styling the over all show after anime. However, with the recent…

Back before the WWW or world wide web as we know it, before HTML and CSS and PHP and the almost universal use of email over the USPS (or other country postal services), we had individuals who ran servers from home you could dial into and get access to the predecessor to what we know today. This was called BBS or bulletin board systems and it was,…
