  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Ohhh, just wait until you meet our giant hogweed. Grows just fine at 62 degrees northern latitude, survives harsh winters, survives two-three days of snow in the last third of May (last two decades - common occurrence where I live),...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Thank you, Heteromeles! I have to find time and get in touch with people in the local Institute of biology, see if they know about this method. They developed their own approach, but I know too little about it. Might...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    In our case it can grow in almost any kind of clearing or field, or ditch that runs along the road. It might be less toxic than some people fear (myself included), but under its "canopy" literally nothing else grows....
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Yes, it as bad as it is described. I live in one of epicentres of that particular agricultural catastrophe, here they had planted huge fields of this green menace (dibs on a thematically appropriate, invasive-plant-management-failure-photosensibilisation-powered supervillain). Naturally it spreads around....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Charlie, I think you have just won spy thriller, conspiracy thriller, heist fiction and satire genres, all at once. If you'll ever have time and motivation (including financial motivation) to write it - please, please do....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Greg, as other commenters said before - do not try to self-medicate with warfarin. This drug is a vitamin K antagonist and it interferes with synthesis of several coagulation factors in the liver. Therefore its effects are significantly delayed, sometimes...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Stats for Elves as playable race will be modified since the arrival of certain pointy-eared invasion army. Or there will be a new race - Alfar. It is possible that many GMs will forbid playing such characters, because of balance...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Too late to comment on that, but still: if you are taking angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or antagonists of angiotensin II receptors, you might want to substitute those in such occasion (if connection between angiotensin system receptors and virus entering cells...
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    I am sorry for your loss, Charlie. My deepest condolences. Take as much time as you need to recover....
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Charlie, will it be possible (and appropriate) to find you at some pub in Dublin during the Worldcon? I had been at your Kaffeeklatch in Helsinki two years ago, and at your reading, still chant sometimes to myself "strong and...
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    Congratulations on Hugo nomination, Charlie!...
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    My sympathies, Charlie. You have nothing to apologize for, health problems in family, loss of close relatives are hard. Take your time, recharge your batteries - we have patience. I will wait for your next book as long as it...
  • Commented on Upcoming Appearances
    On the one hand his address this year brought us interesting news - someone might actually have working nuclear propulsion rocket. Good news for future of Solar system exploration. On the other hand - he said it is an atmospheric...
  • Commented on The Nakamoto Variations
    I wanted to propose something along these lines, maybe with less obvious connection to the Laundryverse....
