  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    This line of discussion reminds me of a dinner conversation a few years back, a gentleman was claiming Apple couldn't do "True multitasking", when I told him contemporary Macs used a UNIX based O/S, it went right over his...
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    What I've noticed is when you spec a machine like a Mac, it tends to cost like a Mac. If you can do what you need with lesser hardware, yes, you can save some money, for me, a Mac...

    ,,,until the neglected foundations collapse under you....
  • Commented on Excuses
    The point of the exercise seems to be rendering meter readers redundant, so more funds are available for the important people. That it's a short term money grab should be obvious, "Lake Woebegone" is fictitious, and economies work better...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Actually, a Kansas City accent, CBS felt it would be intelligible in most of the country....
  • Commented on Excuses
    On rolling coal, it took awhile, but they found something more obnoxious than flatulence in an elevator....
  • Commented on Excuses
    I believe I specifically mentioned power generation becoming carbon free in that. Is there still anyone who doesn't know an electric car is no cleaner than it's recharge source? Anyway, the point I apparently failed to make is if...
  • Commented on Excuses
    If power and commercial ground transport become carbon free, the carbon from the surviving gas powered vehicles may be not such a big deal. Mother Earth's indigestion as a metaphor for pollution?...
  • Commented on Excuses
    I suspect that transition will be helped along by a substantial rate increase for human-driven cars. And those that can't afford the new tech and have no access to mass transit will hate it. Would be nice in some...
  • Commented on Bread and Circuses (circumlunar version)
    I still miss the union job I had had a lifetime ago, though it didn't pay as much as those UAW & steelworker jobs. The kind of pathetic thing is so many business folk want customers with lots of...
  • Commented on Bread and Circuses (circumlunar version)
    Assuming the accounting for space based solar begins to look better as construction materials are sourced off-planet....
  • Commented on Bread and Circuses (circumlunar version)
    Methalox has a bonus aside from being inexpensive, methane is much easier to handle then hydrogen, which can leak through almost anything....
  • Commented on Bread and Circuses (circumlunar version)
    Doing one won't preclude the other, lessons learned living off-planet could prove helpful in maintaining livability dirtside....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Fairchild-Republic proposed a two seat all weather variant, but the USAF didn't bight. Ideally, an A-10 replacement should start with a clean sheet of paper and be named after some 70 year old warbird it vaguely resembles to generate...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Getting the impression that what the movers & shakers want is a return to a nineteenth century social structure, with a veneer of Technology! to hopefully make it work this time. A distinct possibility of Rube Goldberg studies also,...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Had a similar experience when I competed in an amateur bicycle race one summer, another competitor was on the H.S. track team, when I won, only because the semi-pros waited a lap too late to overtake, the track runner...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I'm thinking we'll have no real idea until it happens. I also think it's been too late to avoid something unpleasant for a long time, there's got to be a lot of inertia in terrestrial weather systems. "Conservatives" will...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    In short, it seems to be "Our masters require a tax cut" so programs that impact the 99% are all in danger and ACA especially, because it has the name of a person of color. but here's a couple...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    A lot of that feels familiar, ever run into neurotypicals who are certain that you're just being difficult?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I hadn't heard the term "Dark triad" before, I like it. Would it make "Herr Drumph!" the President of mentally ill America?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I think only Jews can claim that much historical continuity, with everyone else, the connection is tenuous, christians have a more substantial connection to Latin Pagan religions. If they owned up to it, they'd be happier......
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    The Apple gear isn't as bad as all that, auto(in)correct will present you with it's proposed malapropism so the user has veto power, if user is paying attention. And I'm past 60 and find Apple's smallest current phone screen...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Emotion and pain recognition by neural networks could make workplaces even more interesting. The safe money would be to bet on this information being used against older staff....

  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    Dark Morris dancers? I'm visualizing a dance centered on a Morris automobile, beseeching Joseph Lucas, the prince of darkness, to return vitality to the electrical system....

    Too true, but the Democrats have a reputation for apologizing and using lube before the inevitable....
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    My impression is that "suits" are only interested in important lessons if they're suitable as a blunt instrument for self promotion....
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    Working class all my life, Father's family did the tenant farmer thing before WW2, white trash comes uncomfortably easy. Remembering what I've read of "The treasonous slaveholder's revolt", AKA, "The mint julep inspired blue ribbon clusterfuck", the elite of...
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    A non-damaging idea for windows, some years ago during a cold snap I cut some foamed polystyrene to fit the bedroom windows and it helped a lot. Covering the foam with something, possibly winter solstice materialism festival paper, or...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    To a War department that had already fire bombed, and had not seen what a city looks like after an atomic bombing, such a suggestion would have sounded daft. A demonstration blast might not have impressed as much as...
