  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    Another one saying: no apology needed. I've had more than my fair share of deaths this year. Even when it's reasonably expected (93 is a damn good innings), it's still a sharp body blow, especially if the family ties are...
  • Commented on Attention Conservation Notice
    Oh, I'm aware of that. Trouble is, I bought the first book shortly after it came out, and then got antsy because the second wasn't available yet. First world problems, and I'm most definitely not bitching about the author -...
  • Commented on Attention Conservation Notice
    You'd think I'd have learnt by now from the likes of Robert Jordan to not buy books until the series in question has been completed. Sigh. Really looking forward to this one - if it keeps going the way the...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Minor typo in that last link, Charlie - you've got the ) outside the quotes. (Still works; Wikipedia has a redirect in place. But it does look a little peculiar.)...
  • Commented on The Day After
    As has already been noted, the no-longer-giving-away-electricity thing applies only to new purchases (cars purchased after January 1 2017, and/or received after April 1 2017.) Existing owners still get free access. I fully expected this day to come, though, as...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    So, like, in the next five weeks? (Hey, a guy can hope, right?)...
  • Commented on Terry Pratchett
    You misunderstand me. My fault; I could have been a bit clearer in what I intended to say. I'm not saying "don't read TCoM or TLF". I'm simply saying "you probably don't want to start there; they aren't his strongest...
  • Commented on Terry Pratchett
    Clicky. Personally, I'd recommend the Death or City Watch streams to start, with the Witches coming in third - but it's up to you. They're all good; the only thing to be aware of is that The Colour of Magic...
  • Commented on A message from our sponsors
    The antipodal point on the planet from where I live is about 500 nautical miles south of the bottom of South Island. It's a long way from home.Oh, I do realise that, most definitely. Anybody in .au who has travelled...
  • Commented on A message from our sponsors
    Awesome! Another Laundry novel to look forward to. Guess I should get around to reading the Rhesus Chart, then... (short version: life has not been Happy Fun Times for me for a little while, and when the starting chapter finished...
  • Commented on A brief, bitter quiz
    A nit: I wouldn't be putting photovoltaic panels in the middle of the Sahara. Not with those lovely, lovely sandstorms that are liable to blow up at the drop of a hat. No, I'd use mirrors to concentrate the sunlight...
