  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    There's apparently a user script that does something similar[0], but looks like iOS Safari is reasonably locked down... If you have a jailbroken device you can get something called "Userscript Loader". If you don't have a jailbroken device, some iOS...

    Re: losing comments when page reloads Use the "lazarus form recovery" addon for your browser. It saves the contents of forms in a database and automatically fills fields with the saved responses (deleting after some amount of time, db optionally...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Seems a bit optimistic to think that Scotland can stop the UK leaving the EU. I kinda doubt Sturgeon could get away with anything that undemocratic. Also, as Graydon @22 says, it looks a lot like the EU has made...
  • Commented on What Goes Around...
    Welcome back! Afraid I can't comment usefully on whether it's a sea change or not, but perhaps I can ask a quick question. I've just bought the story bundle and enjoyed the excerpt of Tides of Darkness. Would you recommend...
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    I expect I'm not working from your mindset... :) I certainly wouldn't want you to expose any vulnerable sources, but was hoping for some generalities. Thanks for the posts!...
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    Hadil Benu has boasted a few times about their research prowess. A number of other commenters demonstrate considerable ability on a regular basis too. As well as being an occasional contributor to these comment sections, I'm a researcher looking at...
  • Commented on <i>Hot Earth Dreams</i>
    @Frank Re: Epub production, What format is the manuscript in and how did you make the mobi?...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    "felt/feel like I did" Meant "like you did"....
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    For what it's worth, I have praised your work repeatedly and enthusiastically to friends and family over the last week without mentioning my concerns about copy-editing or editing. I think my first comment here annoyed you, and I think I...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    Unfortunately for proof reading, I really enjoyed your book and raced through it pretty quickly on holiday. I'm afraid I didn't take notes for corrections. The most common issue for me was what I perceived as missing words, rather than...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    Thanks for bringing this bundle to our attention! I've been aware for a little while that I don't read enough women authors, but haven't been exploring new authors recently. As a result of this bundle, I finished reading Forgotten Suns...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    As an addendum, to the elliptic curve one, it's not known if NIST/NSA did this to any of their keys. Now that the attack is known and trust in NIST is low, elliptic curve parameters are under greater scrunity and...
  • Commented on Cloud cuckoo politics
    It's often said that adding backdoors to systems makes it easier for other attackers to get in. This is not necessarily true. A backdoor into a router could be protected by a key (that may also be rotated) controlled by...
