  • Commented on FAQ: The Laundry Files--series timeline
    Is the introduction to the Laundry Files RPG canon?...
  • Commented on Default Option
    On the ground in NYC, the snowfall was much less than was predicted and has essentially stopped by now -- just light flurries. (Boston got hammered, though, apparently.) I suspect transatlantic flights to NYC should be fully operational by Thursday,...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    The Greek wiretapping scandal happened because someone managed to subvert the wiretap capabilities in Vodafone's switches, and used it to listen in on members of the Greek government. A better illustration of "It's either secure against all third-party snoopers, or...
  • Commented on Ask the Author
    If offered Honours (if some fan of yours attained a position of influence on the relevant committee, say) would you accept them? Or are you a committed enough Republican that you'd refuse?...
  • Commented on YAPC::NA 2014 keynote: Programming Perl in 2034

  • Commented on The language of alienation
    By the way, assuming the Cthulhu-esque horror doesn't contain any private information, I suspect you could put it up as a text file somewhere and crowd-sourcing might be able to turn it into something usable....
  • Commented on The language of alienation
    I wanted to rebut one suggestion someone made in the pre-crash thread: "Obama's Arab Spring missteps led to Benghazi". While to be sure this would be opaque to someone in 2003, that's primarily due to the metonymy inherent in headline-ese...
  • Commented on Books I've written
    You mentioned in the "Space Pirates of KPMG" post that your novels tend to have working titles, with the actual final title only decided late in the process. What were your various novels' working titles? And how do you go...
