  • Commented on A message from our sponsors: New Book coming!
    Is good story, you read. (I haven't read the final form, mind you.)...
  • Commented on The coming storm
    I think both of us noted that, sometime after '16, we were in a political singularity. I'd really really really love to be out of that....
  • Commented on The coming storm
    There would have to be some law changes for that to happen, and I don't think he could do it himself. The man was not a great president, but he turns out to be a great wartime president. I don't...
  • Commented on The coming storm
    This may actually be more depressing than Missile Gap... Assuming I'm still here, this'll be my first election voting from another country. And, apparently, I can vote in local elections here as well. That'll be interesting. I'm not terribly optimistic,...
  • Commented on Made of lies (and more lies)
    I am still a fan of his Black Widow mysteries. And you appreciated Clarke enough to pastiche his White Hart stories......
  • Commented on Made of lies (and more lies)
    Distortion. (Side-eyes the Mac G4 Cube on top of the bookshelf behind me.) I'm reluctant to throw e-waste out, but that's hardly the same as "enjoys tinkering with old machines". Yeah I predicted that reaction from you. He is...
  • Commented on Do my Laundry
    There was a possible connection between Armstrong and DEEP SEVEN that I don't think was expanded upon....
  • Commented on Do my Laundry
    My burning questions always revolve around BLUE HADES and DEEP SEVEN, mostly the latter since we've had fewer interactions with them. As an example of a question: what is the relationship between them and the PM? By which I mean,...
  • Commented on Pass or Fail
    Scalzi has repeatedly done a thing where a character's gender is never revealed. I wonder how that would score. Huh, maybe I should just ask him....
  • Commented on Finding true love in the cosmos
    This is the type of science discussion I want to see from my science fiction folks....
  • Commented on Go away, Muse, you're drunk (again)
    EVERYONE wants to read the Craft Series....
  • Commented on Go away, Muse, you're drunk (again)
    Well, a fair amount of the first two books dealt with making something type-safe with tons of built-in error checking. Since the failure results were, uh, bad. He never got into multi-threaded demons, which is a bit of a pity...
  • Commented on Go away, Muse, you're drunk (again)
    Have you read Rick Cook's WIZARDS BANE and sequels?...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Quantum of Nightmares
    I wrote up some posts/articles on linkedin about backups (my company had an announcement, and wanted us all to be "more visible"). I just consolidated them into my DW at http://kithrup.dreamwidth.org/2023/03/21/ Interestingly, I hadn't even thought about going into the...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    I'm not sure that's monetizable at all, however, given GPDR. I mean, they also have tons of data on the users, and that is going to be more valuable, but again, it's limited in monetization since so much of it...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    There are three semi-conflicting facts going around: 1. $13B of the purchase price was done via loans taken out by twitter itself (indirectly; this was a leveraged buy-out). The interest alone on that currently works out to about a gigabuck...
  • Commented on Upcoming blog outage
    It only matters if he is convicted of it, and most misdemeanors aren't disqualifying from holding office in the US....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Canada is apparently a constitutional monarchy, which I don't understand. It seems to otherwise fit in all was a republic. ETA: Ah, got it. Canada is not a republic because it has a monarch in the form of King Charles...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    "a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch." Multiple dictionaries....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    The problem with Find My and the AirPods was that the case didn't have it. So if you dropped your AirPods in their case into an old piece of luggage, you might not find it until you next travel, six...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    You were one of the people who told me "republican" in RoI is bad! 😄...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    In those terms, "republican" and "democrat" are not contradictory -- republics are (as far as I know) by definition democratic, but not all democracies are republican. Unless Charlie wants to vote directly on every single issue, then he is a...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    But apparently "republican" is a BAD THING in Ireland. Weird how the same word means so many different political things. Re: shiny! My Watch is pretty old now, and I am somewhat interested in the upgrade. In particular, I like...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    "Comfortable" in this context most likely means she's either in a coma, or on continuous morphine....
  • Commented on Hugos, 2022
    Congratulations, I am very happy for you even if I am sad at myself....
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    Radioactive iodine?...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    Please write more squeecore please. Another factor you didn't mention is Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who turns out to have a nigh-Jobsian level of charisma and audience-awareness. (The fact that he used to be a comedian no doubt helps with that.)...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    Apple did have some ... weird ... research Macs. Including an 88k and an am29k, although I can't speak to how functional or not they were. (I saw the motherboards, but they were not powered on. And right after that,...
  • Commented on Outage report
    Oh dear Moore I'd forgotten that part of it ;)....
  • Commented on Outage report
    The Pentium did have an FPU error, yes. It was one of the primary reasons Intel started adding microcode patches to their chip. (That, and F00F.) The error was actually fairly small, and wasn't discovered until quite a while after...
