  • Commented on PSA: Please don't nominate the Laundry Files for a Best Series Hugo Award (this year)
    Requiring two full novels in a year for a series for a nom seems an odd and unfair as put a lot of stress on the author and seems open to gaming where publishers hold back publishing. As a Pro...

    I want to know how the Black Chamber got caught out its implied that there is a secret occult war in the USA maybe there where other players. I could see the founding fathers having some occult mojo what with...
  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    When we had one of the 6 main oils storage facilities in the UK went up in smoke it main explosion measured 2.4 on the reicter scale. I happened t be in the pub after a union committee meeting and...
  • Commented on Excuses
    A kettle is about 3kw for 3 /4 min which is a lot less than charging an eclectic car for several hours. And once electric cars become popular the cheap overnight tariffs will disappear which of course screws poor people...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Well I used to cycle on a MTB 20 plus years ago in London before it became tready so. Part of the problem is that 90% or so of cyclists are killed in London are undertaking HGV's don't undertake traffic...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Yep and think what happens when every one gets home in the evening and hooks up their car assuming bog standard cooker circuit at 415V - its going to knacker the grid and may well case your breakers to trip....

  • 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....
  • Commented on Book day!
    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....
