I sure hope Limozeen makes the switchover to HTM-La-La-La-La-L5 without any problems...

This might make the Lappy 486 obsolete...

I always suspected Homestar had no idea how to spell things. Or maybe it's just hard to type without visible arms.

Either way, he's just trying his best, and I'm proud of him.

I just hope it doesn't take down the whole system!

Homestar Runner should be in the Library of Congress. I'm not kidding

photoslob, me too. Disabled it after one of the recent zero-days. This is one of the rare instances where it hurts...

It's also on Youtube, for anyone who doesn't have flash anymore.

Of course, given Strong Bad's excellent typing abilities whilst wearing boxing gloves, typing as an activity might well be a very different thing in the Homestar universe.

How do you write ECMAScript 6 with boxing gloves on?

I nearly jumped when Homestar said he knew what HTML stood for, and started reciting it correctly.

"Hyper Text Markup" ah, yes, yes! "Lotion" NOOOOOOOOO.

It's literally the only way to write ecmascript.

So I guess we're agreed then that it's necessary to keep Flash going after all?

I immediately started looking for easter eggs. "Sounds unsavory!"

Travertina: I've found three so far. Are there any more?

Two More Easter Eggs. (Extra sauce!)

and don't forget the Cosmic Scoundrels!

I'm sorry did Homestar just write that his likes include A PLATE OF BEANS?

mccarty.tim: "Someone will post this, so it might as well be me."

NoScript was a man, I mean, he was a dragon man

Or maybe he was just a dragon

But he was still NoScript!

Apparently a few months ago they made another Strong Bad Email!

The Homestuck fandom is trying to figure this out too, since so much of the webcomic is built on Flash. Some parts are interactive, so just YouTube videos isn't going to cut it.

Don't worry, there's absolutely no danger that he'll overthink them.

Let's just rename it the Homestar Runtime and only allow it to work on homestarrunner dot com.
