  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Great book. Needs a reread before actual commenting (and a proper blog post where to comment, probably); but: great book. Much more on the (cosmic/social/personal) horror side that humour, though. A sometimes funny but definitely uncomfortable read... which I presume...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Yes Ryan, they were indeed the BOTBP, and Iris is a follower of him. But it was said you couldn't just summon up good old Nyarly, you need to go trough several lower steps before an Outer God could answer...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Ryan, the cultists were not trying to summon the Black Pharaoh; they were trying to summon the Eater of Souls, which is a completely different (and much less powerful) entity; I don't think the Mandate has any relationship with their...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Charlie, there's one things I've been wondering for a while. In TFM, some people who really should know what they're talking about (Angleton, Panin) seem to be convinced that the Eater of Souls can be used to to awake the...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    > It's possible CNG type events are the L-Verse's version of the Great Filter. They are; this is explicitly stated in TNS. Once a civilization reaches a CN* event, it tends to go extinct. See the Alfär world as an...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    About The Mandate, he really is someone we'd like to know more about. My basic issue with him is: given WHO he is supposed to be (an avatar of), shouldn't he be much more inclined to drive people insane and...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    Well, I definitely can't say this publishing reschedule makes me unhappy. While wishing you all of the luck for Ghost Engine (which I'll make sure to have a look at as soon as it comes out), I really want more...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Hi Charlie, what is the current situation for ebooks? Especially re: publishers, sellers, formats, DRM... and in general where is best to buy a copy of this book. Thanks...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Whatever explanation we may came up with for Mo and other people talking like computer geeks, I still think the simplest one is that Charles is just used to write using the POW of someone (Bob) who shares his technical...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    My point is not about people knowing technical things... is about jargon appearing in their writing/talking style, even in casual conversations. I, as an IT guy, am all for using computer-related metaphors; but while some non-IT friends might very well...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    BTW, the same also happens in that very same scene to Stanwick herself, who says "We know about the risks of installing a firmware upgrade in somebody’s brain". An Assistant Commissioner talking about firmware upgrades? That's even weirder than Mo...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    That's a possible reason, yes, but it looks more as a justification than an actual explanation. Computer jargon is very technical by definition, and "rootkit" is not even something so common that it could reasonably creep into mainstream conversation for...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Yes, that, too....
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Hi Charles, great job as usual, and a worthy addition to the series; also, much character development, although I'd have really liked a bit more large-scale plot advancement, because both this book and the previous one seem (at least to...
  • Commented on Second childhood?
    I tend to disagree on Probleam Sleuth being more experimental than Homestuck. Sure, it's a lot more linear (although some puzzles really are insanely weird) and adheres a lot more strongly to the "webcomic as a game" format typical of...
  • Commented on Second childhood?
    While there are lots of great webcomics around, most of which have already been mentioned, I'd like to spend a word in praise of Homestuck, which started as a rather silly parody of text-based adventure games, but then evolved into...
