  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    You're the one who suggested that the pips of "non-native species" are transported by birds. Rabbits are a non-native species......
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    Are you suggesting that rabbits grow from pips? ;-)...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    You missed how USians often think they are not a democracy despite the method they use to select their chief executive and legislature......
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    One of the consultants came to me - he'd spent hours or a PowerPoint (gag), and then went to save it. He'd just hit yes, and now his machine was hung. I'm sorry, but why does he get sympathy for...

    Have we even invented an NSAID that powerful yet? ;=)...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    It's actually quite easy to "accidentally use a USB", for values that mean "use the port without thinking" when they're a normal means of file transfer between networks....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    You can't accidentally remove the blanking plates either; it requires removing the case....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    an appropriate amount of epoxy in all the USB ports None? Not trolling, but there are blanking plates for USB ports available that can be just "plugged in". When/if the machine is declassified (may involve removing hard drive) they can...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Well yes but we're using genuine private networks, as in the only connections those machines have are to other nodes on the same server. It's not a solution if you "need internet access", quite the reverse in that we need...

    Alan Dean Foster's "Icerigger" trilogy?...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Or "the trouble with 'common sense' is that it isn't!"?...
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    Quetzalcoatlus - Isn't that the feathered, South American take on a dragon?...
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    Well, there's a pterosaur "strike" in one of the 2 Flintstones live films......
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Which one's the "orange idiot"? Bozo or Trumpolini! ;-)...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    #963 Para 1 - Oh yes. IMO they're not worth a fraction of the time/bandwidth being used on them. Para 2 - "Whinging" I thought was Australian for "whining", but yes to rhyme with "hinge"....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    I quite like okra, in small quantities. Like more or less anything else from "Indian" (sub-continental) cuisine, I only ever had access to it in adulthood....
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    I'm not arguing otherwise; the ST:TOS elevator pitch originated when Gene Roddenbury was pitching the original show at Paramount....
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    Well, the original elevator pitch for Star Trek (The Original Series, but The Next Generation is equally accurate here) is "Wagon Train to the stars". You could use "Gunsmoke in the stars" of DS9 and/or Babylon 5. Star Wars (episodes...

    Part 1 - At which time my grandfather was working at Poughfoot (sp)near Dumfries....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    I didn't have such a problem with those scenes, but then my maternal grandfather did work at Nobel Explosives....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    I won't/can't confirm what it tastes like to you, but can confirm the name, tin and dis-likable flavour....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    "whim of Doctor Manhattan"... yes, as in Watchmen. :-)...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    And, indeed, on mine. #801:3 does appear to describe what happened as long as no-one considers the unlikelihood of an armed and hostile military flight originating from an actual civilian airport belonging to the nation using the SAM battery....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Why, by Klono's curving carballoy claws, did they think anyone not Iranian would be firing a missile, any missile, from an Iranian civil airfield?...

    cauliflower - put it in a decent curry, Thank you sir, but Madhur deserves the credit for that one. I just follow the recipe....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Only 4 months in a pressure cooker, rather than the usual 6? ;-)...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    That reminds me; I must offer Feorag my recipe for broccolia and cauliflower curry (this is a real thing, based on a Madhur Jaffrey recipe)....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    IFF id's changing isn't that unusual; I've got one from an inbound flight (arrived safely) that starts with ID code1, changes to code2, and then is turned off when the aircraft lands. I don't think you can draw any ill...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Well, that's pretty strong evidence, more because of the video and time of day than anything else......
