Hello, Isoline! And, why, thank you, Master Control.

Want to know something epic? The name of a major character from my fanfic appears in "Tron Legacy!" Wulf's name comes up as one of the combatants in the disk battles when you are looking at the arena from Clu's perspective!! I was so happy last night when I saw that, I could've screamed! Huzzah for "Fallen Away" fans who worked on Tron Legacy!buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Thanks, Isoline! I know it could be a coincidence, but it would be a HUGE one. I rather think I have some fans out there, and I lurve them.

I have been such a hard core fan of this franchise since 1982 (I was 15) that it means WORLDS to me that my story is being given a nod that way in the sequel.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Sounds like I have some reading to do, Trace. Welcome back!

Wow, this thread and the names within remind me of the way the Sector used to be. Happy and kind, free from polar opposite views on everything... Everyone loving Tron... Everyone getting along, everyone polite.

It's like a Tron-Sector reunion!

Amen Traahn! It was much simpler being on the fringe. "Some time I wish I was back in that garage."

Aww, you're sweet, Trace. Infectious kindness to take over the domain and make this, well, a free system again!

I agree with the above. I also miss Tron being more on the fringe. Part of me wants it back in the garage, but of course I'm thankful there are more programs out there to make this gig more popular and bring more sequels and love for Tron.

That said, we need to talk about Trace's work here! Go Wulf! I still need to get caught up

Greetings, programs.

I hope this post, and especially the URLs, come out OK. For some reason the Preview option didn't work.

This is my first post and I only came across this site, and Trace's wonderful Fallen Away story, because someone posted a message on the usenet group comp.sys.sinclair suggesting that the names Wulf and Miner that appear in the Tron: Legacy gaming arena might be sly references to the classic ZX Spectrum computer games, Sabre Wulf and Manic Miner.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabre_Wulf
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manic_Miner

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.sys.sinclair/browse_thread/thread/c4efd5bdf4f66324#

A Google search to see if this had been mentioned anywhere else brought me here and now I'm confused.

If the name Wulf appeared in isolation I would be in no doubt that Trace's story is the origin. The name is unusual and is almost certainly a reference to something. And I consider it much more likely that a team of mainly American creatives, working on a mainly American project, and who may well be quite young, would have been aware of or stumbled upon this fan-fic and created a reference to it rather than to an 8-bit game from the halycon days of British computing.

However, since the name appears in combination with the name Miner I'm not too sure. For anyone who grew up in the early 1980s (especially in the UK) these two games and the characters within them were absolutely iconic and to see the names together like that in a movie dripping with computer lore and 80s references does suggest a connection. And of course with the worlds of technology and entertainment now so global, it's certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that someone who grew up in Britain 30 years ago might now be doing some rendering work for Disney.

On the other hand it could, as another forum user postulated, be a refrence to Jay Miner and the juxtaposition with Wulf merely a staggering coincidence.

The bottom line is that while I'm now convinced that the name Wulf in Tron: Legacy is a reference to one of these things, I've absolutely no idea which! Does anyone have any idea as to who it might be possible to contact to try to resolve this? Or do you think it's best left ambiguous so as not to spoil anyone's interpretation?

Personally I'm just glad the trail led here because I've now read Fallen Away, which I might never have done otherwise, and I loved it. For some reason it managed to take the one aspect of Tron: Legacy that I was never truly comfortable with -- the notion of programs somehow being manifest in the Real World -- and make it acceptable. Not understandable, not scientifically explicable (which of course it could never truly be). Just acceptable. I can't explain it, the concept just worked better for me in this story than it did in Legacy.

And kudos to Trace for creating the light jets before Disney did. I bet you nearly had a heart attack when you saw the first full trailer.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

That is a total possibility! While it would naturally grab my attention like a lightning strike, Wulf's name up there could totally be in reference to those video games, especially as you say, they were kind of paired up in video game history. It doesn't bother me. I knew it could also be a total coincidence...but the possibility tickles me nonetheless.

I avoided trailers completely so the first time I saw the light jets was when I went to the movie. I gasped out loud, especially when Quorra said, "Light jets!" Also because the way Clu and his Minions leap out of the tower and activate the jets was almost exactly as described when Retribution and the Users leap out of the Rover cruiser and do the same thing. Still, I'm pretty sure principle shooting on Legacy was complete a few months before I wrote of Retri and the light jets. So as much as I would like to claim them as my sole creation, I think this was a case of like-minded writers coming up with the same concept.

Glad you're enjoying the story!buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online
