  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    "raghead" is just as offensive a term as "wetback," so stop it, please. I am in particular offended by you trying to justify it....
  • Commented on Inverted realities
    I think I'm very relieved both of you are so busy doing your own works, because a McGuire-Stross collaboration would be ... disturbing. (And throw in Watts in case it was too full of hope and cheer.)...
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    Note that SFWA has not only refused to confirm or deny he was the person expelled, but they also refuse to explain why the expelled member was expelled (although that certainly does follow from the former)....
  • Commented on A different cluetrain
    Please don't insult the other commentators. Or at least be subtle about it....
  • Commented on An exercise in futility
    That's not actually the original reason for copyright laws. But the original copyright laws were very different from what we have now....
  • Commented on An exercise in futility
    My guess is he would feel you should stop trolling, and read the comments to date to answer your questions....
  • Commented on An exercise in futility
    In this case it's not being published differently; it's being displayed differently by the reading app -- that's it....
  • Commented on An exercise in futility
    That's the "moral rights" Charlie referred to -- a very big deal in Europe, pretty much non-existent in the US, and it prevents someone from doing exactly this, making a derivative work without permission. (I mostly disagree with "moral rights,"...
  • Commented on A different cluetrain
    Until Charlie pops up about this, I'm going to say that discussion needs to be stopped. You, David L, are not to blame for it, and I don't disagree with you (and I don't believe Charlie does, either)... but it...
  • Commented on A different cluetrain
    I think that's enough about Israel and anyone else, until Charlie is awake....
  • Commented on Space Robot Sad Trombone
    not a simple shell Dyson's original Sphere wasn't a simple shell, either, remember....
  • Commented on Brontosaurus BDSM, Werewolf Marines, and Serious Social Issues: Self-Publishing in the Wild
    There is nothing preventing an interpreted language on a non-Von Neumann architecture -- why do you think that is? A just-in-time compiled environment would have some problems there, but even that's not even particularly difficult. You are never going back...
  • Commented on Brontosaurus BDSM, Werewolf Marines, and Serious Social Issues: Self-Publishing in the Wild
    If physical access were required, nobody would end up with updated firmware. And yes, end users do update their firmware -- it's especially common for SSDs, these days. You can't, in this case, rely on cryptographic security, because we're talking...
  • Commented on Brontosaurus BDSM, Werewolf Marines, and Serious Social Issues: Self-Publishing in the Wild
    A lot of plots are killed by having mobile phones -- it's interesting to see how they work around them. Well, interesting when they work around them well. The problem with cellphones as spying is that they do transmit, and...
  • Commented on In which I am crabby about viral archery videos.
    Not helpful: using insults. Helpful: explaining why the statement is wrong. (Less insulting, and, of course, I'm also curious why.)...
  • 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....
