  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Greg - what's a Pen-7 - I tried gargling but couldn't find anything much. I have an OM-10 that I got for my 18th birthday, with a rather nice tele on the front - it would be cool to think...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Dunno what your AV talking about - I am behind corporate sophos AV, and it let me in sweet as you like. So either mine is crap, or yours is paranoid. Entirely likely for either to be true, sadly....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I'm sorry if I am being a bit dim, here, but what is the "MF" that JLM is referring to in @342 ? Genuine question, I am (more) confused (than usual)....
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    My take: power grab to cement her position in absence of an opposition (I have a pot plant in conservatory that is more likely to win a GE than Labour). Cue 5 more years of misrule, austerity, cuts and bloody...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    Damn, that was a rabbit-hole and a half! Where's the last hour gone! Thanks for the link, absolutely fascinating....
  • Commented on Random excuses
    Also, I did not inherit his furry face characteristics -my granddad on t'other side was ginger, so I am a piebald brown / ginger / grey patchwork, which looks bloody ridiculous. Also $wife hates face fur, and will not tolerate...
  • Commented on Random excuses
    My dad just about to start chemo for prostate cancer. Last time I saw his chin was 1973, when I was 9. Will be weird if his hair falls out and his chin reappears....
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Per R.R.Martin: GOU We do not Sow...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Damn, too quick to submit. House is about 1918, brick (bloody *hard* brick at that). Was a bugger to redecorate other side, she'd been smoking 30-40 a day for 60 years, and had not decorated since c.1970-1980. All white paint...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    And while we're on about houses, I confess to being very lucky - we bought a 3bed semi 18 years ago. A couple of years back the lady next-door pssed away, and we got the opportunity to buy other side,...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Don't get me wrong, I actually really like Grand Designs, and some of the spaces look like they would be lovely to be in. I still shudder at the thought of heating some of those volumes. I also have a...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    I love Grand Designs : "We want something different and challenging and modern" "Here, have 2 offset cubes, that'll be 3/4 million quid please. "...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    I wonder what would happen if some author extrapolated Spam / Ham wars, and wrote a book around it ? I'd read it :^)...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Thanks ever so much - it's WavingDavid. I am sure you will reblock me if I misbehave (I won't, honest)...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Tim, or OGH (if you're not too busy), any pointers to the references on legal action ? Though a constant reader for the last 4-5 years, I seem to have missed this. Also, in other spaces: anyone know why you...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    I tried to follow cstross (I am a *very* light user of twitter), and it told me I was blocked. Shame, it would be noce to follow the ramblings of probably my most favourite author....
  • Commented on Suspense is the key
    Pigeon - sorry to derail - but are you the same Pigeon as on El Reg ?...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    I still fondly remember discovering Ophiuchi Hotline and Steel Beach when they came out, and re-reading them at least twice each....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Oh FFS, I'd read the back of the HP sauce bottle if I thought it had been penned by you....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Really ? I found Seveneves impossible to finish - stopped caring at part III. But I *love* the Systems of the World books, and REAMDE, and Cryptonomicon, and Anathem....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Oooh, I'm really liking twigserial - very nice. Thanks for that....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Just read Mick Herron's Slow Horses set - I'd not come across him before, and I found the dark humour very engaging. Started the Zoe books, but I am finding them a bit gloomy....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Bah. s.Country/County/ Unless we secede also, I guess....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    @746 - I had heard of the Cornish party but didn't recognise their name. Re Yorkshire - ooh, interesting, whereabouts ? (am in God's Own Country too)...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Murid Overlords, surely....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Update, Nominations this week, open Weds eve, close noon thurs, new PM to be in by 2nd Sept. Opinion stated it was to deny May time to rally a campaign together. Bojo, or May, or Gove, or IDS, Jesus wept...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    It's odd, but I am really struggling with immigrate as a verb. You come here from abroad - you are an immigrant. Sure, works fine. You are from here, and you choose to live somewhere abroad, you emigrate. Sure, again,...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Sigh: NZ - I wish I could: I am 51 and meet the key skills shortage creiteria. However, unfortunately I did something stupid just shy of 10 years ago, thich makes the visa process suddenly *much* more complicated and difficult....
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    How many monks are there in here ? (Said as a lurker, not even an acolyte at the SDM)...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Go stand in the corner and have a long hard think about what you just did....
