    Yes I have noticed that before when Bob visits the security service at Thames house it seems to have switched banks of the Thames....
  • Commented on Book day!
    Or possibly the SA suggested it as a base and it appealed to its ego - of course the towers water gate is nice and handy for the Blue Hades to launch a suitable weaponised shogoth at him. I did...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Yes exactly what Iris was doing is interesting and what the SA's plan was he seems too know who Mandate/Fabian is and had some sort of dealings with him. So if Iris was trying to take down the wall of...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Yes I thought Mandate was a serpent man when he first appeared - though I am not sure how OGH thinks about Howards additions to the mythos....
  • Commented on Book day!
    To play devils advocate Bob joined SOE SIS's more violent sibling so I suspect that the laundry might have a much more para milatery bent a bit like the CIA retains its own organic muscle in the form of SAD....

    Lol I raise you the 4 bore stopping rifle ideal for hunting helicopters elephants and shogoths https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/b4/c1/41/b4c141bb0a2479b0edbcfb5a54aca1ef--firearms-shotguns.jpg...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Thinking about it Pauley is a bit to Chaotic/Lawfull Good for Cassie I was thinking of Felicia's later role as Charlie in supernatural and Amys (aka the death princess) as Root in POI as having similarities to Cassie....
  • Commented on Book day!
    I thought the redating of GNG was a fake out to flush out Iris cultists? I must admit seeing a pub (the rocket) mentioned that I have been in a few times was fun...
  • Commented on Book day!
    :-) I am not sure if Felcia Day, Pauley Perrette or possibly Amy Acker should play Cassie in the film version. But that's just me and initially I visualised Mahari as Asian...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Seconded!!! cant wait to discuss the major plot twists and turns...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    Actually at BT they moved our team to the ground floor when we had a plus sized guy join - They also had to buy a special chair to support his weight. Not sure he would managed to squeeze through...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    The crew seat you so that you are away from the exits :-) from experience coming back with a leg in plaster from a ski trip. But you do get better leg room :-)...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    And recalling my CCNA C is fairly similar (cica .5c) for both copper and fibre...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Yeh that worked out real good for the French Napoleonic army...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Well crown servants which I presume the laundry are owe allegiance to Liz II - though I am not sure if the UK has an equivalent of the 25th amendment do deal with a PM going mad whilst in office....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    One of the supplements for the RPG has a scenario where the players go through a gate to a future earth where this is happening very grimdark...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    True but blitzkrieg doctrine ideally you have two parallel roads with rods linking between them. And Arnhem was hampered by bad weather stopping air support and also dropping onto a town where a panzer division was reforming...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    On a vaguely laundry files related note you can now ride the GPO trains from next month, https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/2017/06/07/take-a-ride-in-the-post-office-railway-next-month/...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Deighton in Blitzkrieg quotes 50 tons per day of hay oats etc for a non mechanised division and this is required every day even when not moveing. As they say amateurs talk tactics professionals strategy and real professionals logistics....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Trouble is those "carts" allow you to have a mechanized unit rather than horse drawn - a horse drawn unit requires a massive logistics trail to feed the horses plus blacksmiths and farriers portable forges to re show horses etc....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    One of my mates was in Iraq and loads of the brought back gasmask as souvenirs which the army had to hurriedly had to offer an amnesty as some of the masks where tainted with chemical weapons. Bovingdon tank museum...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    well as cheap 3d printing wont be able to produce the working bits of a gun any time soon and arguably tradition metal working is easier and cheaper to produce guns that 3d printing using meta aka sintering. Producing howbrew...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    Yeh I must admit that crossed my mind too I can by the black chamber being fatally compromised some how and Shiller comes back with some power over the black chamber. But doesn't explain why the other agencies haven't put...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    Well as one form on magic is Kabbalistic tradition which is all about language I suspect that the OCINT section of MOSAD are fairly badass....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    One would hope so I was at my local renal unit doing HD Dialysis on friday and boy am I am every glad the dialysis machines where not network connected :-) Though technically this might cause a delay in me...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I suspect that the budget meetings only have clinicians and mangers with Jen from the it crowd level of knowledge about it security and they saw the $5milion line and deleted it. Presumbaly the NHS version of Bob wasn't invited...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Ah no the Traveller jump system meant that you don't always come out at the same place having better computers/software allowed you to reduce the risk. The risk would be that you end up pointing away from your target and...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Classically in Treveller you used boost mid point turn over decelerate and jumped with 0 Delta V - its the most cost-effective way and safer. Military ships could jump with higher delta v's however managing to jump accurately enough so...

    Designed using book 5, not sure if there are limits to what speed you can engange the J drives at might be tricky jumping at say > .3 C ill have to check my collection of LBB's...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Np wasn't expecting how expensive it would be. Would make a good plot point for a traveller or snapshot adventure board and take over an incoming planetoid and save a world from destruction....
