  • Commented on In which I am crabby about viral archery videos.
    You tone strikes me as a bit close to trying to pick a fight with Nojay, so you may want to keep that in mind in the future, please....
  • Commented on Default Option
    Have you looked at the yen lately?...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    I keep considering a Tesla; the long wait period is what mostly keeps me from doing so. My consideration of the Tesla is as a luxury car. From that perspective, it's not horribly out of whack with the competition (which...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    I believe he meant total each year. That is, "Each year, no more than a few hundred people in the lowr 50% of earnings buy a new car of any sort."...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    I don't see why everyone is assuming he doesn't understand what he's asking for -- from what I can tell, the UK is a surveillance state, with an ever-increasing desire to watch everything, not only in real-time, but to store...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    I think this is also a topic that can be dropped now....
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    Any discussion which includes the concept "some people just need killing" will be removed, by me. I'll take getting yelled at by Charlie if necessary later. Sasquatch, I am specifically warning you. I've already unapproved one comment from you and...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    40x energy density sounds like a really good start for a bomb....
  • Commented on A message from our sponsors
    It's not about "the tyranny of shame." It's about the tyranny of death. It's about the tyranny of torture. You are either blessedly naif, or willfully ignorant. One can be fixed, but I suggest you don't try to fix it...
  • Commented on Things I would make if I had a 3D printer ...
    You should be able to do a cheap 3d scanner using two cameras and a rotating stand. (Heck, you could do it with one camera.) Surely someone has made such software for hobbyists, no?...
  • Commented on Ask the Author
    Saturn's Children and Neptune's Brood....
  • Commented on An age-old question
    I happen to like Hamilton's books -- they certainly have problems, but they're Big Fun Space Opera. The societies are no less implausible than the Culture, and Hamilton is less of a travelogue writer than Banks was. But I'm not...
  • Commented on Let's put the future behind us
    Folks, please don't respond to obvious trolls. (Among other things, the comments may mysteriously go away. OooooOOooooOOoooo.)...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    Do I really need to ask people to not engage in personal attacks? Even with Greg, please....
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    The concept of a WalMart GSV hurt my brain. I blame the insomnia mostly....
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    I suspect that the appeal of magic is that it isn't available for sale. That's often not the case. Max Gladstone's setting, for example, everything is based on magic, including the currency ("soulstuff"). Similarly, there's Walter Jon Williams' Metropolitan. (And,...
  • Commented on Cameron v Churchill
    And water is dihydrogen monoxide, and excited molecules are warmer. Your retort is trite, adds nothing to the conversation, and does not, despite what you seem to think, mark you as having deep insight into the political process. Now, please,...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    Stop squabbling. All of you....
  • Commented on The referendum question
    Comments with multiple links are flagged for moderation. Long comments are as well. Certain keywords are as well. Posting the same comment multiple times won't generally help. I do apologise for the delay; I saw your comments had been held,...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    Please stop it, both of you....
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    That's not exactly true, as civil rights are a federal issue, no state border crossing required. It's confusing for Yanks and non-Yanks. eta Also, insurrection is always up to the President to handle, as that is an executive, not legislative,...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    I would like to gently remind people of two things: 1. Long comments get held for moderation. So there is a benefit to keeping your thoughts short, and not quoting large portions of someone else. 2. I, personally, would prefer...
  • Commented on Down tools
    Congratulations! Now go play with the cat....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Y'know, you don't come across as witty, scathing, or fearsome. You just come across as young....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Please do not feed the troll. Charlie can deal with his post later, if he wants. Subsequent discussions that do not include polite mocking of the troll are likely to be unapproved pending Charlie's involvement....
  • Commented on App store annoyances
    First: No, they're not, not at all. To give one very important example: the password file is on a read-only root, and cannot be modified. Second: Given that it was decided to be single-user, and that the user name was...
  • Commented on App store annoyances
    It isn't going to happen due to decreasing how many devices you might buy; it isn't going to happen because the issue of security, access, accounting, and many other issues gets much more difficult. Note that the Apple TV is...
  • Commented on Gods and genre
    They're not "making Thor a girl." They're making some woman be the Thor. (As in, "the captain.") There is a large difference between those two statements....
  • Commented on App store annoyances
    Most app shops are one or two people. Maintaining different versions of servers and protocols is beyond their limited ability to support. It's not rocket science; it is janitorial, and it's a lot of work. Do you work on adding...
  • Commented on App store annoyances
    Er? iBooks on the Mac syncs new books to my iPad, so I'm not sure what you're describing? Note that I don't buy books from the iBook Store; I get them, and add them as ePubs. So I don't have...
