    I'm just waiting for the fight between "we stream everything from your keyboard" interfering with "we get it from the OS" and "we get it from the firmware"... if anything it's an argument for a centralised repository that they can...

    it's OK for paradoxes to happen occasionally by accident I think this is where Scott's earlier notion of the penalty ninja comes in. When a paradox would otherwise appear, what you get instead is a ninja. If you manage...

    which leads to a pretty unrealistic understanding of what “collapse” will look like. Collapse for most of them would be their chauffeur being unable to park outside their preferred hand-ground civet coffee shop on the way to the studio....

    The good news is that a lot of stories are either copied verbatim by sites that don't have (effective) paywalls, just trackers, and often by less awful sites like the BBC as well. Hence my BBC link way up there....

    I think the technological stuff will break down anyway I'm trying to work on ways to maintain a technological society that don't involve slavery and genocide. It's quite subtle, and a lot of it (99%) is not my field, and...

    The romans lacked cluster bombs, mines and napalm. Hence my use of the term "war" to describe what could instead be described as "refugee processing" or "border control" in a Yes, Minister sort of way. I don't think it's going...

    Are you saying these estimates of mine are too optimistic, too pessimistic, or what? Firstly, I don't think we lack the technology to solve the problem. There are lots of options, ranging from the renewables/global Green New Deal style...

    The Boris Problems I think you'd need a rule that when demonstrating the solution Boris is not allowed to be harmed or disappeared. Oh, and the articles I've seen about that plane are clear that it's the "fastest subsonic trip"......

    I'm pretty sure there were fires in Victoria started by power lines a few years ago. It's definitely something that has been mentioned in the past. But this year we had a whole new level of official fire danger (catastrophic!)...
