Man, James Rice is all over these Sunday installments. Is it time for Matrix nostalgia yet? Will it ever be time for Matrix nostalgia? I would say no, but supposedly there’s Tron nostalgia going around, so anything’s possible.
I was going to post new bonus Sunday stuff today, but my computer totally crashed on Thursday night and I can’t get to my fan art and stuff. I’m writing this from my laptop at the coffee shop up the street. I am going to get so fat on hot chocolates until my desktop is fixed.

The background text in this image wasn’t exactly random. It was taken from some E-mails from Shaenon, but each character was changed. I think we were discussing toothpicks. All true fans of Narbonic should know the two meanings of 5478. I think this was the fastest an funnest of the Narbonic movie posters I did.

What a great … historic date!
It’s the birthday of the artist we love …
Five / four / seven-eight!
Also used … to designate …
It’s the “RT” test that Helen loves best!
Little Artie, he’s a smartie,
Feeling mighty fine!
Sarge creating, celebrating,
Feasts on cake and wine!
Get them straight! There’s no debate!
See the digits four that we all adore!
Er… Suppose I missed the meaning of 5478? Where would I find more about it?
Well, us forum-ites have created fanfic inspired by the comic, and there’s been fanart created of that… could work!
Let’s not forget the other meanings of 5478:
* Distance in metres from Dave’s apartment to the lab’s highway median strip entrance.
* Dave’s ‘Dig Dug’ high score divided by 10.
* Total amount of bullets fired by Mell throughout the whole series.
* Total amount of dollars Dave spends on cigarettes throughout the whole foliation of time in which he buys cigarettes.
* Last 4 digits of Foxy Cop’s phone number.
* First 4 digits of Dr. Narbon’s phone number.
* Number of minutes Mell spends dead and in Heaven (OH UM SPOILERS).
Query: what is the ‘Narbonic Sunday font’ used in this and other episodes?
@adam: Well, Ed kind of already explained it, but if you don’t feel like reading the filks:
Artie’s original “name” was RT-5478, presumably a serial number. In the Director’s Cut, Shaenon told us that she chose that number because her birthdate is 5-4-78.
So It Begins: Alas, the elusive triple recursion eludes us.James, thank you so much for making this fanart of my fanart.
Damn. I completely forgot to post this link about a real VR for mice. http://www.newscientist.com/video?bcpid=25196461001&bclid=1904732932&bctid=44892629001
