  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    I believe the Aussies do get latitude. To me the issue appears to be more that the UK residents resist the conclusion "in the long run, you have to abandon the UK"....
  • Commented on Brief commercial interlude
    Fixed it! Following the help section of the Kobo website I was sent to Adobe's website where I learned that I had to de-authorize and re-authorize ADE. That worked....
  • Commented on Brief commercial interlude
    Well, that didn't go as planned. I just downloaded my copy of the UK-version from the German Kobo store and tried to open the "URLLink.acsm" in Adobe Digital Editions as usual. As a result I get an error box: "Download...
  • Commented on Brief commercial interlude
    off-topic note to the admins: The comment thread of the PSA: Publishing supply chain shortages post a while back is still open, while the threads of the following posts are already closed. Maybe that is just an oversight?...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    They probably count on not ending in one of those 'care homes' themselves. And they'll probably be right....
  • Commented on Quantum of Nightmares
    I'm looking forward to buying the book, however, I'll be waiting till Thursday for the Orbit edition, just because so far I've always bought the UK-editions of your books if available. I also like to have a consistent cover design...
  • Commented on Omicron
    To me this article about stupidity seems to be—frankly—BS. Also, just from the links to other articles (and the book adverts) the site it's on seems to be climate change denying and antivax. Doesn't seem like a respectable source to...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Also, what if the two halves clash with each other? Namely, what if POTUS turns out to be a domestic enemy of the Constitution, and gives orders that run contrary to it? (And as we all have become aware at...

  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Judging from the abstract/summary/teaser, that paper doesn't seem to be based much on criticism of any kind, but certainly to be deserving a lot of criticism. And this claims to be an academic paper? Lordy indeed....

    Zane (#954) wrote: An informative wee film on the problem, lovingly prepared with dystopian music worthy of Scarfolk Council, back in the 70's/80's: The Quick Clay Landslide at Rissa - 1978 And a more recent one just last year Wow,...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    How does "ARMBAND technology" limit "the number of craft that can move stuff among timelines?" Because there exists only a limited number of ARMBAND devices, and each one is only good for a limited number of jaunts. They seem to...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    At least the price hike of natural gas isn't confined to the UK only. We have it on the continent as well. Some sort of Covid after-effect? Or an after-effect of the recent shipping backlogs? There are certainly people on...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    perhaps the simplest way to get a non-human world may be to posit that worlds that proximity in paratime has nothing to do with the amount of shared history between timelines …and it has the virtue that it's what the...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    To introduce a topic not yet touched, I'm wondering about Adrian Holmes. Is it only me, or was he making a heel-face-turn in this book? From what I remember from the previous books (which may not be accurate, because I...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    Finished the book last night and enjoyed it! Thanks for a satisfying conclusion to the series. As a point of criticism, the book could have been improved by having someone proof-read the German words and sentences. Many of them contain...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    But around here the buyers already own Teslas and such. I mean it would be a great FEATURE to advertise. But nooooo. This prompts the question: Why aren't the prospective buyers requiring this feature then? I mean, if I had...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    re 3D-printing houses: I don't think it makes a real difference as long as the expensive part of housing isn't construction per se, but the land that the house is standing on....
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    There's also the issue that the mirrors could be pointed (by malicious actors) at places that don't want to bake/fry in too much extra light. Those threats would be interesting, politically. Our Gracious Host sort of has you covered there....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I'd like to add/modify an item to your laundry list: Mass migration from the equatorial regions, Syrians and Guatemalans were just the start - along with the political ramifications born a fear of being swamped by non white people (Trumpism,...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Apropos of nothing, what do all y'all think of the prototype US Space Force Dress Blacks? As a southpaw, I'm partial to the left-handed fencing jacket look, and that Star Wars Imperial Officer thing will attract the right crowd too,...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Based on the first hundred or so comments (plus a terms search), I think we're forgetting another major application of this rocket technology--air transport. These rockets have the capability of transporting people anywhere in the world in about an hour....
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    All that’s necessary to solve the problem […] is regulation. And of course the land of the free can't have that. So it must also be the home of the brave (sewage dippers)....
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    @ Heteromeles and other interested parties, concerning the debates about urban planning, public transportation and adjacent topics in this and the previous post: I've recently stumbled upon the YouTube-channel of a guy who calls himself Adam Something. He has very...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    What about taking the New Deal-projects as an inspiration? Let the crazies work on the big infrastructure repairs (roads, bridges, what-have-you) with shovels. You'd get lots of untrained, overweight people to do manual, unskilled labour in fresh air (with the...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Charlie, the last link in your comment—while covering an interesting story—leads to what looks suspiciously like an anti-vaxxer website. Maybe viewer discretion should be advised....
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Next you'll be telling us the American Mid-West should be abandoned because of the increasing threat of tornadoes, or the South-West (aka the Great American Desert) because of drought. … and California because of lack of water … Well, most...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    While the Iranian leadership is probably as rational than the USA or UK ones I can get behind that, as long as we understand it to mean "not at all". For starters, let's just remember this woman and this woman....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    But for me, the real fun part is that the actual mastermind behind the plot (a chthonian?) was the white Persian cat. AIUI the cat is indeed an avatar for the chthonian entity. I am not sure, however, what this...
