    Any news on your Berlin gig (looks at calendar)?...
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    Charlie, while your scenario for a NDB sounds right (you forgot that NI imports all its electricity from Ireland; London is seriously planning to ship over generators in case of a NDB), I think this will be averted: Soon after...
  • Commented on Holding Pattern
    Work at the pace you can sustain; don't burn out again. And good luck with your mum. Keep us informed about Berlin, please - I'd like to meet you there, if possible at all....
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    The link about petty authoritarians is broken. I still hope that we (the human race) will be lucky, but my believe wanes whenever I think about the climate catastrophe we all choose to ignore. And I'm more and more glad...
  • Commented on New publication dates (and audiobook news)
    The index is available for preorder from Amazon Germany....
  • Commented on New Book Week!
    Will we see any signs of the US presidential elections of 2020 in TL2? Since we are in August 2020, the conventions are over and we are only ca. 10 weeks away from the elections......

    Btw: Dark State is up for preorder on Amazon!...
  • Commented on Bread and Circuses (circumlunar version)
    China already has a heavy launcher (which carries a bit more than the Falcon Heavy), a space station, a lunar exploration program, and is planning an automatic sample return mission for 2019(!). They will not carry a flag of the...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    I suggest to reread The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein - it partly deals with the aftershocks of Kathrina. The same will likely happen here, probably worse. I wonder how FEMA et.al. fits into the "Breitbard/Ayn Rand" mind - isn't...
  • Commented on Attention Conservation Notice
    Why no Kindle editions yet? I'll buy you a pint on Thursday. :-)...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Since these worms are only possible since the NSA bought the exploits and horded them - do we know if the GHCQ also knew about these exploits and didn't inform the parties responsible for fixing them? I.e. are parts of...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    For ones like those used in the NHS, you are talking about a man-year of technical staff effort (which has now been abolished, sorry, outsourced) and between a man-day and man-week for every user of the system. I understand the...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    with a dead cat bounce around the $9.99 mark, before they fall off a cliff. Ack. I'm weary to pay €10 or more for an eBook (but will certainly buy more books at €2,99). TDB sells for €10,99 in...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: Empire Games
    Do notices done on Kindle devices eventually percolate to you?...
  • Commented on Random excuses
    Great! See you in Dortmund - and you won't have to pay your beer. :-)...
  • Commented on Random excuses
    GRRM is still on LJ. Any update on the convention in Germany you mentioned?...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Do you have any idea how much the current cost estimations for decommissioning power reactors are? Let me help you: More than the construction. And nobody has solved the long-term storage of nuclear waste yet....
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    A big point was the demobilization of the Manhattan project was so swift the US had a lot of trouble making new bombs. Required reading: Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety by Eric...
  • Commented on Free ebooks! Get 'em while they're hot!
    I strongly recommend the Tor eBook of the Month Club: They give away free books every month (and started with The Three-Body Problem :). The usual advice: Use a unique e-mail address, if you can....
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    OMG. Small correction: There's no need for MlP to declare a state of emergency, as France is already in one. Oh, and what happens in Turkey and Israel?...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    I'm awaiting your predictions for Germany in 2017. Currently it's possible (though unlikely) that CDUSPD don't get a majority of seats in the next Bundestag (since Gabriel seems to be committed to his Project 18)....
  • Commented on In other news ...
    Thanks. I LOLed. And can't wait till June. Will we ever get to know Bobs "real" (in a non-magical way) name?...
  • Commented on Empire Games sneak peek
    I'm slightly confused by two different listings on Amazon Germany with very different prices, slightly different covers and divergent release dates. I've pre ordered the cheaper one. Is this "just" the usual difference between US and UK editions?...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    Your's is a typical non-Amercian view. An American view would put Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand first. You can not understand the current Republicans without Any Rand....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    As a german I don't believe that the AfD will be a serious problem in this decade (and probably not in the next): The german political system is very resilient against new parties (see e.g. the Pirates) and right-wing parties...
  • Commented on The Day After
    Seriously: I thought of you and "Empire Games". And I wondered if you would change it. :-)...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    An entry of Scotland into the EU will need approval by Spain (it needs approval by all members. This will be difficult if the spanish government doesn't want an independent Catalonia. And France and Spain will think of the Basques....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Angela Merkel is not a good european stateswoman - she played with the idea of a Grexit, after all. And look at her statement from today - totally uninspired....
