  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    An even bigger problem is the real time chat format doesn't lend itself well to reading 1000 previous posts. No more people replying to this post from a week ago, like I'm doing now. Or even no more americans waking...
  • Commented on Upcoming blog outage
    I was thinking of a fixed price bandwidth limited VPS not of something like AWS with usage based billing. Basically the same thing you have now but running into a VM instead of on a specific physical server. Something to...
  • Commented on Upcoming blog outage
    Silly question, but are you still hosting hardware that you own in someone else's data center? I can't imagine any other reason for a physical move. Wouldn't it be simpler to just rent a virtual server from the same company?...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Hmm. This reminds me of Richard Morgan's Market Forces. Not the actual story but the world in the background....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    [quote]Yeah, I was joking about how the men in their fifties might use the same equipment they practiced with thirty years ago, and which was already becoming obsolete then.[/quote] Actually from what I read about the russian army said men...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    delurk... Fighting discrimination with discrimination isn't going to go anywhere good. lurk......
  • Commented on London Bridge
    I wouldn't say no to an iPhone 14 Pro Max if one fell on my head, but my 12 Pro Max No offense but my iPhone XS is still going strong. What are these shinies you speak of?...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    Like a lot of other terms, grandfather clause has changed meaning. Please don't overdo "offensive" like a certain movement......
  • Commented on Brief commercial interlude
    I didn't even ask for estimates for this one. I just ordered and I'm sure it will eventually come....
  • Commented on Brief commercial interlude
    You can also email for details of international postage, but be warned, Brexit has messed everything up, and we have a pandemic and a print supply chain crunch on top. For the record, my signed copy of Invisible Sun...
  • Commented on PSA: Publishing supply chain shortages
    They settled for a list of principal characters instead. I actually loved the list of principal characters and the timeline. Brought back enough memories of the previous books that at no point i had to wonder who the f**...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    a Crib Sheet for Dead Lies Dreaming is due in the next few months. I need to catch up on the publication schedule to see where we're at, but as it went paperback in the UK and probably isn't getting...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    I wonder if I can get Transreal to sort out a shipping method that doesn't involve the global postal service, thank you BRexit. I really don't want to queue for customs at the regular post office, especially during a pandemic....
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Hey Zoom talks would be nice. Would have been nice even before this pandemic, for people who aren't close to your convention circuit anyway :)...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Why the URL shortener? I'd very much like to know the source of this without following all the redirects in a command line... Not to mention that if this weren't Charlie Stross's blog I simply wouldn't click on a hidden...
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    Well, I haven't done an impulse purchase in ages, guess it was time for one. Bought the book when i got to about comment 50. Guess having guest posts on Charlie's blog to promote them actually works....
  • Commented on Downtime coming up
    Have fun rebuilding the RAID. Hope there are backups? ;) And to spam something unrelated, because it's too good to pass in my opinion: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/jun/20/petition-netflix-cancel-amazon-prime-good-omens-christian-neil-gaiman-terry-pratchett Brilliant move!...
  • Commented on Dark State: how to get signed copies!
    Yay, a mention of Transreal directly on the front page. Just for the record, I've been getting signed copies of everything Stross from them for a while now - I must have 4 or 5 at least. Old school bookstore...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    For the record, in Romania I can buy ebooks off the Amazon US store but not off the UK store. So the "3rd party territories" don't quite overlap. Not that I buy any of your books as ebook lately, I...
  • Commented on Annihilation Score round-up
    Exactly. There are a million cocoa trees in various growth stages, but only one each of Stross, Mieville, Gaiman etc... Also, writers take a lot more than 5 years to mature :)...
  • Commented on Annihilation Score round-up
    This is sort of depressing. You spend a year to write the book and I finish it in one afternoon... Want... more!...
  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    I tried to make some sense of the argument, but all I could think of was "he's playing the think of the children card!" and couldn't even read the other reasons. This is either your worst blog post, or your...
