    Generally speaking, most Marvel readers believe that 616 is the main, and the rest are Alternate Realities. And...Alternate Realities is divided into two groups of Alt-Earths and TRNs. It is not uncommon for a TRN to get a full Earth designate (via retcon) if Marvel senses the popularity...like the case of Spider-Gwen, for example.

    Congratulations! And thank you for your kind words. My next milestone will either be 6500 Squad Level, 350 for Missions, or 2500 for Heroes.

    CBR just came out with an interview with Alex Alonso today that mirrors our Iceman discussion:

    CBR: This week saw the much-anticipated release of "Uncanny X-Men" #600, which gave a definitive answer to the question of adult Iceman's sexuality -- that he's also gay, like his younger counterpart. Iceman's coming out has been a major topic of conversation since April of this year -- what are your thoughts on how this story has played out, and how it's been received by the audience? There's been a good amount of positive mainstream press surrounding it this week.
    Alex Alonso: There has. That scene was inevitable, logical outcome of the story that began in "All-New X-Men" #40. In fact, that scene was part of the first conversation that Brian and I had after I'd read the script for "All-New X-Men" #40 almost a year ago. I mean, the moment you say that young Bobby Drake is gay, you have to consider the ramification for older Bobby, right? Brian and I were totally on the same page: it absolutely made no sense for older Bobby to be anything but gay. They're the same guy -- just from different time periods and at different stages of their lives.

    That said, Brian knew that older Bobby coming to terms with who he really is would be a very different scene from the one he wrote for young Bobby [in "All-New X-Men" #40]. Very different. And I think what he's done is elegant.
    So...I will agree that one could say that "Uncanny X-Men #600" was when Bobby of 616 was officially announced as gay. BUT, I can also keep my original position of "All-New X-Men #40" being the issue as revealed by the thinking of Alonso/Bendis. That's one of the things I love about comics. Two differing opinions could both be technically right. And that's the best kind of "right".

    I was looking some articles about the Unity Web Player that may have something to do about what is going on in the game...

    UNITY WEB PLAYER ROADMAP

    NPAPI Plugins in Firefox

    Looks like Firefox will follow Chrome and Edge, and end the support for Unity Web Player, from March 2016 onwards all the unity web content will be generated by WebGL.

    Reading the last paragraph, it would seem that if you configure Firefox to not accept updates, NPAPI plugins will still be supported at the risk of decreased security. If that's so, then I'll have to restrict playing the game to the newer laptop that doesn't have classified data at all (and on which I only made two additional installations, Firefox and SHSO).

    Well damn. Guess it's good I found another timesink. Woulda liked to have gotten Iron Man Midas before the game tanked, but I doubt I can make enough fractals before then, and I'm definitely not spending money.

    I always thought it was stupid they used some obscure plug-in for the game to begin with. You'd think Flash would have made more sense.

    Not a programmer but from what I've read Unity is really a game-centered engine with 3D figure and landscape rendering, while Flash is more all-around (but can still be used to make games). Plus, I think even the latter is being de-emphasized with the move to HTML5.

    The issue is security. Simply put, NPAPI (Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface) is the best program to develop browser extensions/plug-ins (like Unity) BUT since it has been around since 1995 it has been hacked so much it has threatened the security of the browsers that run it. Hence threatening all the internet. Browser companies, led by Google, recognize this as a major threat to overall security and hence the premature deprecation/stoppage of this API. Google wants these developers/companies to be forced to move to a safer API (i.e. WebGL) EVEN THOUGH there isn't a better API at this time. The thinking is by forcing developers/companies to move to another API, that it will generate a better API in a shorter amount of time. It's a "cold turkey" approach to programming.

    Since all these browsers are stopping support of Unity I think that SHSO is probably going to shut down. That or they might remake it in a different engine which is unlikely.
