The Guild has been around for some time now and I’ve enjoyed watching it many times over. It’s about the woes of RL existence for a group of gamer geeks.
I first noticed the main drive behind The Guild, Felicia Day, from another similarly awesome project – Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog. Aside from that, I’m also a casual but frequent World of Warcraft player. Thus, when I encountered The Guild I was absolutely trilled as it does a great job of illustrating the tone of some of the weird social stuff that comes out of leading a dominant online life.
The Guild has gone on in to a third season and I see no end in sight. I’m loving the third season and finding the earlier times remain well worth watching. I’ve also found the DVD is cool as they’ve tossed in the various little extras one might expect from a DVD (commentary, etc).
Check it out some time if you are willing to have a good giggle..
For the lazy, I’ve embedded the first episode below / after the break and if you like it, I’d suggest you toss a few bucks their way as this isn’t some lameo cash grab, but rather sincerely creative people producing something of real value and substance. You can also watch The Guild on youtube of from www.watchtheguild.com.
So I’ve been dragging my feet, trying to really wrap my brains around how nMOS, pMOS and the ever awesome n&p party called CMOS really get along, when I came across THIS freaking awesome page that really provided the illustration for how these things work that I’ve been looking for! The page that hosts this demonstration page I’m talking about is for some university in Hamburg, so I’m really thankful their page was written in English.
Anyone out there taking a course involving CMOS logic should really test/augment their understanding by taking a run through this page. It’s so freakin helpful!
For those who are bizarrely keen, the course I’m taking that relates to this is ENCM467 at the University of Calgary. Feel free to check out my notes for some vague scribblings related to this.
