  • Commented on Empire Games
    Just noticed Menhit's photo credit. Kitty selfie photo-bombed by food ape....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Oh No! My copy arrived today, wasn't expecting it for a couple more days. It'll have to wait a little, just until I finish what I'm reading—which shouldn't be long....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Okay, but I think adding Baby Elephant Walk may be a step too far. Though every time I see him walking, and say to myself "What a shlumper"......
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Yeah, I know it doesn't work that way. More from the wikipedia article: He took the oath of office on March 4, 1841, a cold and wet day.[93] He wore neither an overcoat nor hat, rode on horseback to the...
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Assume you mean the 'bring back slavery' bit. No, I meant the catch pneumonia and die in a month bit. Though, see the article about a painting I linked to a few days ago....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    In honor of today's news: Tom Baker's 83rd birthday, I'm reminded of that episode where the Doctor finagled his election as President of Gallifrey, then when giving his Inaugural Address he introduced the New Alien Overlords.... As for that other...

    "Trumplethinskin", wonderful afaik that comes from Alec Baldwin, after one of the Rump's whiny little tweets....

  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    I'm wondering how much of this is due to wikileaks exposing themselves as Russian shills?...
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Looking at the tracking for yesterday's shipment, looks like my copy won't arrive before next Monday. I can be patient—must avoid spoilers....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Just got confirmation email that my copy has shipped*, along with "A Stranger in Olondria". "Hammers on Bone" shipped yesterday. Started "Six-Gun Snow White" last night, it's short enough that I ought to be done by the time EG arrives....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Well, there are a few Black Rains out there already, don't need that confusion again. Assuming my copy ships Tuesday, I'll hopefully have it the day after the Inauguration (Totally Bogus! Believe me. Sad!) for some uplifting reading....
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    It was Excel 97 which had the flight simulator Easter egg. Okay, I was thinking about how that seems a pointless bit of cruft. Possibly causing other problems? Before I retired I was in a lab where four different versions...
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    And thinking a little more, I realize that's not quite what you mean, but it's ridiculous that MS has at least 4 text-editing type programs, all with different formats. The old desktop has Word, Works, Wordpad, and Notepad. Wasn't there...
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    hint: RTF and .docx import filters in a non-Microsoft product cannot be relied upon to operate the same way). Hell, that's true of other MS products. I used to use MS Works on my old windows desktop, I had finished...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    For quite a while I've wondered why the worst people all look like real life Spitting Image puppets, namely Trump and Gove, Farage (shame he's not in that picture too), Bitch McConnell*, and throw in Shkreli for extra ick. *Yeah,...

    I missed/forgot the other people involved....

    Via Twitter: Richard Kadrey ‏@Richard_Kadrey A week from Trump taking office & my mood had shifted from freaked out to a quiet sense of surreal foreboding, like we all fell into a Dali. Charlie Stross ‏@cstross Welcome to that Brexit...
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    Apologies for potentially obvious question, or if I missed something. But... Is there any reason you and the CE can't use something other than Word, that you both like (i.e. Scrivener or such), and then convert to .doc and send...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Couldn't find the recent article I saw, but he's been using his own security people all along, and the Secret Service are annoyed with them getting in the way....
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Maybe, but he seems to only value buildings and land, and keeps away from anything the smacks of "Intellectual" property. But then he also doesn't mind torpedoing things he does have an investment in, to protect his fragile ego. Like...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    now you have a serious case of the munchies, preferably brownies? I think* you have that backwards: He may have had some of Alice's brownies, and then gotten the munchies for cheetos or something. *just because I live in Colorado,...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Another thought: It's part of his Cunning Plan to ruin Shkreli for stealing his shtick. Because Donnie the Rump would ruin an entire industry to deal with one man who wasn't worth the bother. (Not that I'm in any way...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    They have and everybody knows it, but I didn't expect him to be the one to say it. He probably doesn't have any investments in the Pharms, so he won't lose anything when their stocks tank after a tweet (or...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Apropos of nothing in particular, well maybe a "Fake News" conference and of other news yesterday. Whenever I see Donnie the Rump's PEOTUS logo*, I think of a Do Not Enter sign. Seems appropriate. *PEONUS? Sorry, hanging head in shame....
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Please explain: Short bus / Lucy bus & "You should have bought a squirrel" Since no one else seems to be answering, here's a partial one: I haven't seen the movie Rat Race, but guessing from the description that Lucy...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    best practice is to paint one side of such an object as far out as possible. Problem is that it's difficult to paint a tumbling object. And even if you could would it make much of a difference? Alternatively, maybe...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Also, it seems to me, that the comet bits will remain grouped together, more or less. In which case it'll impact mostly on one side of the globe, with stragglers pounding down on various other spots. So not really that...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Might as well go for broke. If San Andreas can get triggered, why not the Yellowstone Supervolcano? Once saw a simulation of it that included supersonic pyroclastic flows rushing down the front range of the Rockies. Would reach here in...
