  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I did say offering, not "all are made in". IN general it varies from high CRI, more yellowish like old style lightbulbs to neutral to slight bluish tint. You are correct though that blue tinted white gives more power than...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Your last sentence should read "cheap LED's you see in cheap torches", since the branded more up market ones have been offering high CRI led's for years and years now. On the other hand I recently got a cheap led...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    You only just noticed? Several of us have met Charlie in various ways at various times, usually due to close geographical proximity or shared interests. Gordycoale is right....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Ah, but you aren't thinking this through! Genetic modification of crops will solve all the heat issues, and provide massive investment opportunities!!! Any day now!!! Meanwhile, on twitter, there's a moron who can't see that demanding everyone have photo ID...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    What is there to notice? Evil baby eating lefties have been saying for decades that the rich are controlling things to suit themselves, and yet people keep ignoring them. People keep voting for the leapards eating faces party, and then...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    You mean for adding to the ocean? Every study done by scientists indicates that it's not much use, versus every booster, shyster, engineer and money maker who says it's a great idea and can solve all the problems....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Yes. You keep giving them food and a bit of other stuff and treat them like the mad relatives you don't want to talk about. Don't give them any military stuff to go on about, although obviously you have to...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    I was about to quote the OED re. origin and definition of 'punk' but the NLS link to it isn't working properly. So anyway, I seem to recall that here in the UK it has an old meaning, of old...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    When you phrase it that, way, yes, of course. The corrupt use of various scriptures has always been a problem, and the most modern expression is surely the american evangelical church with various ideas, from dispensationalism to the prosperity gospel....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    TLA means what? The Last Airbender or Three Letter Acronym?...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    Obviously the time is ripe to try again. After all, with the Juicero getting millions of dollars, and Musks nonsensical hyperloop stuff getting press, there is plenty of room for aerial cycleways....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I'm sure you would like to think so. Some, yes, but, as consideration of talk radio, the mail, etc, or more modern methods makes clear, no it doesn't for most of them....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    My point is more that a worryingly large section of the populace won't get wise to it at all. Eventually they'll die off and be replaced by younger people who grew up with it around, but there will be a...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    The tricky bit is the inbetween time when people are still learning about it all. And no matter what, a lot of people will believe the nonsense anyway, see Clinton derangement syndrome, the mail, etc. Or for instance you'd be...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    As Pigeon says, cycling in Edinburgh, and indeed a lot of Scotland and England, involves headwinds both ways, hills, slippery bits, bad corners, etc. Then there is the way the wind whips around building corners. Suffice to say, take your...

    Graydon clearly hasn't lived in Edinburgh......
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    It's a bit hard to tell which of them is typing tongue in cheek, or when they started doing so. I'm sure Charlie is....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    And yet, Greg, other countries like Sweden and Switzerland managed to have fallout shelters for most of their population. Geography helps of course, but the British government policy was basically stay at home and die; if yo usurvive do as...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Hardware producers do take software seriously, it's just that as profit maximising entities themselves, it isn't worth their while to just give away various updates and other stuff. My work is still using XP based machines because upgrading the instrument...

    In pursuit of efficiency we should just make everyone in the world speak and write in the same language. Meanwhile, in Edinburgh, the council is very happy to both make it easier to kill cyclists and harder to actually drive...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    THat's basically the history of the British nuclear deterrent - spend the money on nuking the enemy, don't spend it on making your citizens safe. Anyway, if this was a novel plot, the guy who stopped it would be the...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    The if it causes one death thing is I think as much to do with various people wanting someone to blame for whatever goes wrong. Car accidents can often just be ignored as accidents, or blamed on the dead driver,...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    Wait, what? Decelerate in neutral? What if you suddenly need to accelerate again? Which fuckwit thought this up? And yet people seem to love using their clutch, I've seen so many people hold their car on a slope with nothing...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    I have been told that modern cars shouldn't engine brake, but cannot recall a good reason being given for that. Some numpty car industry person might have one. As for wide corners and suchlike, that's surely more stupidity and bad...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    The problem there is that any personal experience, unless you are a direclty involved in knocking on doors, involves the same distance from the great mass of people (over 300 million, I hear) as us here in the UK. So...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Come now Greg, where have you been for the last thirty years? The current republican philosophy has no small c conservatism in it​. It's all about greed and fucking over the poor. There is no risk perceived by their faction...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    I recall Stuart Peachey complaining about how he'd seen 17th century and more modern archaeological stuff being chucked by archaeologists more interested in the medieval or Roman stuff underneath. Elderly Cynic #249 - the question is more, how to balance...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    That's due to an unholy combination of resource restrictions, the need to grab or appear to grab public attention; the difficulties of conveying information in digestible amounts to people who have greatly varying background knowledge. I found the Museum of...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    Well that's the thing, as far as the arguments go, the catholic church had been as excessive as before, and with groups like the Cathars, or indeed the Hussites, had exterminated rival variations before. I've never heard that the lollards...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    The thing that historians still discuss is, why did Luther's demands actually spark something, when numerous other reforming and breakaway movements and sects in the past, didn't. I can't recall specific arguments, but it was quite interesting reading about it...
