  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    About the candela: I don't know for sure, but I suspect that, at some point in the past, luminances could be compared to one another more accurately than they could converted to Watts, adjusted for frequency and sp on. So...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    The biggest question I'm puzzling over is why the Black Chamber was encouraging Reverend Schiller to release the Sleeper in the Pyramid — especially if the Sleeper in the Pyramid is an elder god that competes with their elder god....

    Persephone's patron???!!!! Have I missed something?...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    There's a very explicit statement in this book that the SA still sees a way through this (or at least told Mhairi so). Obvious interesting question are: is this true (or was he lying to Mhairi or she to us?...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    A network of workstations is not socially very different from a mainframe. They are still owned by the employer and used predominantly for work. On the other hand, replying to a number of other comments as well, the "cloud" is...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Thinking about the original question, classic SF blind spots in the past have been much more about the social impact of technology than the actual technology. In the 60s and 70s we could see that computers were becoming more powerful,...
  • Commented on Book day!
    298: Before this book I had concluded that one of the top priorities in the immediate aftermath of TNS would be to get Alex and Cassie married, so that he would inherit. I think if I'd been the SA I'd...

    291: Mike Armstrong the SA seems much more like Smiley -- self-effacing, not especially personally powerfui (we never see Smiley shoot or the SA cast a fireball), but willing to do whatever they believe it takes to win the game...

    289: Did the BP kill the Sleeper:....: I would say not at all -- it killed a reasonably well powered up slave of the Sleeper, which will have cost the Sleeper a lot of its energy and possibly its current...
  • Commented on Book day!
    At the very end the SA says that ganging up with Nyarlathotep was needed to "create a binding geas" and approved, reluctantly by the Board for that reason. I find this interestingly ambiguous -- who or what is bound by...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Any theories, or even official word on just what the scope of Operation Constituency was? It seems clearly stated that Iris was licensed to establish a chapter of the Cult of the Black Pharoah, and to do some awful things...

    277: 5. How did it take so long for them to figure out Schiller's plan? While they were going “he's spending so much money, what does he hope to gain?” my first thought was “infest every British leader he can...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Let's not forget Angleton calling out Old George by name in The Rhesus Chart. At least one Deeply Scary Sorceror was aware that PHANGS existed. We overhear an audit-committee level discussion in which it's clear that the SA and others...
