  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    The wrong trouser leg of time was somewhat sent up by Richard Herring's As It Occurs To Me audio extra podcast ( number 3 ), where he imagines what would happen in a world where Trump didn't win and listens...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Just finished the first pass read - I tend to devour the overall story very quickly and then go back a couple of weeks later for the juicy morsels left over. This one will definitely take several gnawings. Wow. A...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    Not for a while, but I'd just been to see Hawkwind so https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Lockheed_and_the_Starfighters came to mind ....
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    "Combat Poet" Awesome. Just have an image of Robert Calvert running around in a flying helmet destroying possessed Starfighters ....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Richard Herring (a UK comedian) the other night called Trump "The Furious Orange*". which made me laugh. * From The Curious Orange from his TV show this Morning with Richard Not Judy (TMWRNJ) via I Am Curious Orange - a...
  • Commented on Sometimes I don't know why I bother!
    Was going to mention Brian Blessed and Squanto - glad they get a mention. CB Fry https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._B._Fry certainly had an interesting life - turns down Kingship of Albania, cricketer, diplomat, politician. Tries to get Hitler's Germany to take up Test...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    I've just started reading this, but also have just listened to the first 2 podcasts to help with the book. Found the podcasts rather amusing too. The book is a bit 'bitty' so far, but seeing as I don't really...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Like many others above, have read TNS , Who killed Wherlock Holmes and currently on the Corporation Wars. Have the next Peter Grant lined up when it is finally published. I've also been reading a fair bit of 99p books...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    Bought TNS today , finished about an hour ago . Fab. That is all, will probably have a couple of questions when the spoiler thread opens. Worked better for me than TAS, only due to subject matter , more familiar...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    I do wonder if Her Madge could perhaps abdicate the English throne to Chuck but keep Scotland? There is a whole range of interesting constitutional things that COULD happen if Brenda decided to. She's 90, probably far more fed up...
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    Read that a couple weeks ago, was amused by a certain sailor called Stross....
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    It certainly didn't start that way - the convenience of a laptop was the paramount thing in my experience - Tosh did desktops for about 30 nanoseconds in the late 90's and actually as corporate desktops worked - easy to...
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    Really , I thought the main things TSCOG (The SCO group , not SCO ) sued over was from Dynix (by Sequent) particularly the Read Copy Update parts. Turned out the majority of the 'copied' code was a fresh reimplementation...
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    The SCO of the zombie litigation is not the same SCO of OGH's era. The original SCO had by the time of the first lawsuits morphed into Tarentella and has sold its Unix interests to Caldera (at the time a...
  • Commented on An Apology
    I've got Patrick Malahide (Cheerful Charlie Chisholm from Minder) as Angelton. Think he'd carry off the creepy menace and School master mannerrisms quite well....
  • Commented on Reminders
    Picked up the book this morning . The footnote on p68 and the end of chapter 4 made me laugh out loud . thank you....
  • Commented on Reminders
    My ( UK ) copy has been sitting at my local bookshop since Monday, and since I can't get to the shop during working hours I'm having to wait till Saturday . Ho Hum....
  • Commented on Terry Pratchett
    I started with Eric (the book not comic/graphic novel), a lovely little story. Moved on to Mort I think, then read the rest from the beginning. If I was going back to the beginning , I'd probably read them by...
  • Commented on Competition Redux!
    dammit it won;t compile - missing { at line 1...
  • Commented on Competition Redux!
    if ($Car.size > LookUpType("Smart").size) $AcceptableNumberofBees = true; else $AcceptableNumberofBees = false; }...
  • Commented on Competition Redux!
    Can I ask for a T shirt to be done ? Surely I'm not the only one to want this ? Black t Saying : CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN (in green obv) When The Tentacle Hits The Pentacle on the front...
  • Commented on Competition Redux!
    Congrats to all the winners! I had a lot of fun reading them, and trying to come up with some entries myself. Hope you run something similar in future!...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    I only got that on my third read of TJM , so then it would be TRAVAGLIA rather than Howard ... Just wondered why Howard rather than Hewlett or Herring or anything beginning with H ... thus the doh ,.....
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Doh .......
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Re The Scrum not looking at other vampires It was a 1 week sprint on this spike - not enough time I would suggest for them to work out all the angles - they covered the basics what can they...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    I think we're all having far too much fun coming up with silly responses. I, for one keep coming back and laughing at the replies. Love to see this post keep going ....
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Attn : All Employees Subject : Jokes Can We Remind all staff that "Rick-rolling" each other is a waste of time and resource (and quite frankly rather outdated.) This complaint was raised by an entity known as "PURPLE_HAZE", which made...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Leaving a Pot Noodle in an inactive summoning grid is not a breach of the rules, chucking a chow mein pot noodle at one and shouting "All hail his Noodly appendages! " just before activating a class 4 grid intended...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Well done *applause* - you even redacted the bit about [REDACTED] and the [REDACTED] with the [REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED]....
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Installing Windows 8 onto HR's computers is not "Increasing productivity" especially when installed with the High Enochian language pack. The RHR department have lodged a complaint about the lack of productivity. The RHR's themselves have filed an Employee Tribunal....
