Derby #51 Cyberpub: The Preemptive Strike!

Talk about whatever you feel like, no need to be derby related. If we’re on to page 3 already, don’t bother reading through. It’s mostly gibberish that we can’t remember two hours later anyways. Shirt ads are welcome eHalcyon!

Going out to lunch?

I sure am.



And, you know, all the other derbiers who just post ads here and then disappear. :tongue:

Man, that’s an even worse scale than fahrenheit.

“Hey! I typed first page and it came out first page! What’s up with that?”

“Fi**rst page” filters to that of course. But you know that. :tongue:

Now the question is, how much trouble will I get in for posting nothing more than FIRST PAGE on that first page post?

Probably none. It’s ANARCHY here in EBW these days.


Imagine our 16" by 20" print area is broken up into a grid of 1/4" squares. Your job this week is to create an image by filling some of these squares with blocks of solid color. You can place your design anywhere you want within the grid, and fill (or not fill) as many of the squares (or pixels) as you like. All of your pixels must align to the same 64 x 80 grid of 1/4" squares. You can’t use any other design elements: no lines, no shading, no partial or multicolored pixels. And, of course, you’re restricted to our usual six ink colors. This the same challenge faced by many of the early pioneers of computer graphics. Let’s see what you can do with it.

No video-game or computer-graphics references whatsoever will be permitted.

And no text.

This theme announcement is dedicated to Prof. Tek. We hope to hear from you soon.

I suck at pixel art. I mean, suck more than usual.

I think I could do a veggie design for you…

Hey eH, you got the first post under WootBot in teh main Derby thread. Do you want to post a pointer to the Cyberpub there?

Just do it. I don’t have an exclusivity contract with any veggies.



I’ll do it if I don’t come up with some brilliant idea. I should probably finish this church summer camp poster first though… any poster design tips? I’ve done web, brochure and shirt design now, but posters are new to me. I was told to make it 11"x17" which also seems a bit long to me…

Thanks, man. I was gonna revise and resub this, until I saw the graphics restriction. Dang. They must have seen my entry, and put that in :stuck_out_tongue: Paranoia, eh?


Might wanna clean that up…

I don’t know anything about graphic design, I just doodled in class and stuff.

11 x 17 is a paper size you can buy (at least in the U.S.; do they use the same sizes for paper in Canada, or do they use stuff like A4?). Does it have to be portrait or can it be landscape?
