That doesn't seem quite right. Of course it's not good for hC to know where they are, but they can't afford to flux the whole casino unless they also know that Torg's not there.

I always liked that old strip from 2001. It was well-made, with the colors and the dramatic scene. And then Skip saying "go team" was so oddly human in the midst of it all, I thought that was funny.

Drape the bangs a bit, wear a pair of tinted sunglasses and some heavy makeup. Reflective objects like rinestone beauty-marks tend to mess with even the best of programs. Facial recognition works by measuring the angles and distances between key features on your face, like your pupils, the tip of your nose, the corners of your mouth, your ears, and your chin. If the program can't lock down where exactly those features are, it can't make a match.

Basically, the more you look like an '80's rock star, the tougher it is for facial recognition to find any kind of match.

Fun experiment: facebook's auto-tagging software is pretty good. See what it takes to beat it!

I for one cant wait to see Aylee in a wig :D

Also, poor Aylee. She's not as strong in her like human form. I wouldn't want to run into K'z'k again either!

Agreed! I loved that whole Bug, Witch, Robot fight. Aylee and Riff working together, the layout and visuals of Gwynn's dream strips, Kizke's powerful strategies, everyone's mid-fight quips, the card symbolism. The whole thing from Gwynn attacking Torg out of nowhere to the Bug's "end" lasted less than two weeks, but it was masterfully done.

The bread says TOOOOAAAAAST!

One day, Gwynn will learn what good choices look like :P

[EDIT] also I just realized that title of the chapter is probably referring to the type of game they'll be gambling on

Facial recognition story: my wife and I got dressed up nice for a wedding, and FB kept wanting to tag her as her mom. There was always a strong resemblance, but that pushed it over.
