I'll introduce my first episode by answering the inevitable questions:
Why "The Hate Machine?" The US Air Force Academy is often dubbed "The Hate Machine" by cadets who reside there. USAFA attracts some of the nation's brightest young minds, treats them like 3-year-olds for 4 years, then graduates them as cynical, socially retarded bundles of malcontent. Hence, The Hate Machine.
Why start with episode 10? Well, episodes 1-9 of THM exist, but they were all created with Macromedia Director. I may one day go back and redo the episodes in Flash, but that would be a lot of work. To get the back story, visit http://www.edodo.org/HateMachine/hatemachine.shtml
Where the hell did you get Gina Ryder? Hey, I'm a lucky guy.
