  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Which is not the point at all. Using the term gets you into the habit of dehumanising and despising people that you are supposed to be working towards benefiting by way of improving the world. The end result being that...
  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    That's an interesting read but it seems to overlook Long COVID. It's just focussed on encouraging vaccination to reduce hospitalisations from an infection....
  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    I think you are missing the point. Charlie's worry is less the Seagull specifically and more another poster of more malicious intent turning up and posting stuff that gets him sanctioned under the proposed legislation. So threatening to dox that...
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    I could, but I would not as rule. Because understanding is not required for acceptance. I am especially disinclined to translate for people that shout at me. Sorry Greg....
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Personally I'm glad to see her back (sorry Seagull haters). My understanding was she was banned from a specific thread, not this board as a whole. I don't understand everything she was to say. I just don't let a lack...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    This is mainly a response to the first part of the post I am replying to. To be clear. Putin is scum, his oligarch enablers are scum and the invasion is a war crime (also a very stupid thing to...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Greg, your knee is jerking hard enough to hit you in the face there. She isn't spreading anti-vax propaganda. She is snarking at the heatless swine that are "and don't care much if a certain percentage die off."...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Yes, I gathered it was not unusual and all in fun. At least your fictional counterpart seems to have good survival sense. I sometimes run the tabletop RPG Cyberpunk (from which the computer game Cyberpunk 2077 is descended). The setting...
  • Commented on Omicron
    On an unrelated note. Lieutenant Stross? https://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20211210#.YbMtqL3P2Cp...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    I liked RAF Luton's take on it myself (This being a satire account, not an actual RAF base). https://twitter.com/RAF_Luton/status/1467447277413453824?s=20...
  • Commented on PSA: Publishing supply chain shortages
    With reference to the comment in there "If you've got a commercial idea, drop me a line and we'll talk business." I am no artist, but evidently at least one person with art skills is pondering the idea of maps....
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    The sequel is just as deranged. It riffs off the whole hollow earth and lizards masquerading as people nonsense. There is also an amusing sub-plot about a cult of apple tech users that, literally, worship Steve Jobs. But I would...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    With all due respect. If you don't like someone's conversation then don't talk to them. Telling other people not to talk, when they are plainly enjoying the exchange, is more than a tad out of line....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Greg, Hindus are not polytheists. As I understand it from conversation with Hindu colleagues the orthodox position is that the various Hindu gods are aspects of one god. It's much the same as the Christian concept of the trinity....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I take your point. But, how much genuine attraction would there be across species lines? As opposed to people of different ethnicity who are, for all of that, the same species....
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    So, I own all of the above currently in print and am looking forward to reading the rest of them. I'm not sure about the end of the Laundry part of the arc because I've grown invested in most of...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    I liked your stuff Graydon for the novelty and the characters you came to care about. Even the nameless grunts who end up in the standard. Even Halt gods help me! I liked the wizard school stuff because they really...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    In a similar context. I play EVE Online. If not using voice comms all inter-player communication is done via text chat. Sometimes you want to speed what you type so that you aren't focussing on that for too long and...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    It is true that David Weber is mostly concerned at the start of the series with concocting a reason to have Napoleonic naval battles in space (and then later carrier battles). However, he did carefully construct his setup of the...
  • Commented on We get reviews (contd.)
    I've just bought the series up to Empire Games on the UK's branch of the Big River. RPG-wise I'd be inclined to see how well the setting matched up with the Luther Arkwright game. Or, for that matter, the Arkwright...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Thing is. The story I have heard is that the Taliban didn't tell the US to "poke off." Rather they asked for a minimal amount of evidence in order to justify extradition. I don't have a source for that however....
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Also, later parts of The Expanse series mention Belter women (who spend large parts of their lives in zero-G) going to the agri-dome settlement on Ganymede or the port city of Ceres when they become pregnant. As far as I...
  • Commented on In other news ...
    Charlie, did you and Dave ever get anywhere on that Laundry/Broom Cupboard (Hunter's Moon) short story? I'm suspecting not due to general pressure of work for both of you. Which is a pity really....
  • Commented on Suspense is the key
    Well the example that comes to mind here is someone I introduced you to. David Devereux and the opening scene of Hunter's Moon. That said he was going for literary Bond as a model so hardly surprising....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    In other news. Have you seen this Charlie? http://www.goominet.com/unspeakable-vault/vault/540/...
