    Charlie ROFL, not going to happen. I know that, you know that, but ... I suspect that the "readers" of the All-Station-Stopper will believe almost anything... Here is the original bullshitarticle for larffs Your suspicions as posted are very likely....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    David L Correct Even the Hate-Mail & The all-station stopper are backing away. There was an admission, a couple of days ago, that Britain might have to "Invoke Article 16" & try to renegotiate a new Treaty (!) Nothing to...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Talking of IQ 45 ... It would appear .. that civil war has openly erupted inside the Republican party. [ The Shrub is publicly backing Ms Cheney against the Drumpf's candidate, oh dear, how sad. ]...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: signed copies and author events
    Charlie I bought a paperback copy of Singularity Sky ... & haven't looked back since ........
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: signed copies and author events
    The (?) predecessor (?) of Transreal Walking from the Gassmarket along the West Port is how I found Charlie's books in the first place in Edinburgh in 2003 ........
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Big mirrors Not a new idea IIRC ... A C Clarke had a word on the subject ... & much further back, Archimedes did something similar at Syracuse, discombobulating the Romans .......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    "Foundation is out" And how does one watch it, without a subscription to whichever set of thieves are broadcasting it? Oh & no TV .......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    See also # 447 It would appear that there is a serious race on for electric-powered small(ish) aircraft... There is the VA-x4 as mentioned, backed by RR, amongst others, and now Airbus have shown a prototype As I said -...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Martin .... it's also "stop it going bang when you don't want". Something my Father, after time in the experimental & testing sections at Ardeer during WWII was very keen on! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Oh yes Any thoughts on this ... just...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Pigeon I have a relatively new-ish twin-tub - for the reasons you decry The centrifuge ( spinner ) is much faster than "normal" models, & because of its primitive quirks, I can "program" what I want to do with it,...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I was, obviously (?) thinking of the Larffs & the "W. T. F? from the passers-by ......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Kettenkrad ... Made before 1980, right? So it's S Khan's bloody ULEZ-compliant, then? Driving one of those round London could be good for a few laughs ......
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    David L So the PRC is even more hypocritical than BoZo ... They need to stop building coal plants RIGHT NOW...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    David L Probably not. "Box Spanners" are something different again....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    JBS Actually, I've also got the open-ended & ring spanners too .... Plus, of course the effing useless intermediate stuff the auto industry used in the 1970/80's "AF" I find it amusing that, IIRC, "metric" threads are Whit profile, just...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Trudeau appears to have retained power, but without an absolute majority ......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Washing Machines ... There's also the matter of reliable, easy-to-maintain HOT water. We used to have a coke-fired solid-fuel back boiler - it heated the water all right, sometimes to almost-boiling point (!) but it needed constant attention, you had...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    EC But ..it's ELECTRIC & therefore "green" & good ... Oh, wait a minute?...

  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    paws I SPECIFICALLY said "peacetime" in my original post. Also, with what we know now, it seems as though the CR may have known that Tinsley ( Signalman at Quintinshill ) had mild epilepsy & should, therefore have never been...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    280 Deliberate trolling. NOT biting Geoff O'Donoghue You're welcome ... Unfortunately, the original article had a lot more pertinent comments, that got truncated, when the system was moved. There was also a very good book on it from Oakwood Press,...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Paws @ 270 "Triage at major incidents" I strongly suggest you read up on exactly that, as practiced after the most horrible peacetime railway accident in the UK - Harrow. REQUIRED reading...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Which would suggest that Alberta has the same problem as us ... IF you could, even temporarily get the Lem-0-Crts & Labour to.. 1) Combine, via official tactical voting to get the tories OUT & 2) Whilst, in power, actually...

  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    David L IF ANY shop even attempts to do this to me, they will be really snarled at about the International System of Units Followed by a rant on how I've been using "mks" since 1960-61 & what's YOUR problem?...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    And ... just as you think it couldn't get any more bonkers .. This happens I want to know what the scriptwriters are smoking. As long as it's not the effluent from that waste pit in Staffordshire, where nothing is...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    JBS A "stalemate" when one combatant is Viet Nam & the other is the PRC ... that's a Vietnamese victory - again....
