  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Yeah, an MZ250. The very Definition of a two-smoke. Poor handling, dismal brakes, nasty noises, etc ,etc. Although I enjoyed my fast Vs, the 400-4 was possibly the best fun one could have. It wasn’t actually a 400 for one...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I had one of those MZs and the well designed chain case was the *only* thing about it that was good. Horrible, horrible, bike to ride. I replaced it with a very lightly caféd Yam RD200 for a short while...

    There are a number of motorcycles with toothed belt final drive these days including Hardly-AbleTo’s and some small Japanese bikes. Very few big sport bikes though, probably partly fashion and certainly partly potential issues with handling 220+ hp in a...

    #873 - " But expecting your employees to read your mind isn't the mark of a great leader…" On the other hand, being *able* to make your employees read your mind.......

  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Apple have been running OS X on ARM for years - I’m fairly sure since before I moved out of Silicon Valley in 2004. The core of iOS is basically the same code anyway. The fastest ARM cpus are very,...

    " maybe right now we don't really need to manufacture any of them here but we do need to be able to manufacture them if we had to." Well then you'd need to have an educational system that results in...

    Re: raptors - here on Van Isle the raptor population is largely a mix of Turkey Vultures (we have one nesting in our woods right now and rather spooking Lady Bridget when she’s out gardening) and Bald Eagles. Add a...

    Three friends have told me that they feel fairly sure they had COVID before January. Two are GPs. The other is a gliding instructor working over the winter in NZ and got ill in October after taking up a glider...

    @1910 - no, same batshit-insane party, different batshit-insane leader. Harper (spit) was forced out when they lost the last election and replaced by someone so unpleasant that I suspect he doesn’t even like himself. I was chatting a few months...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    @1757 - “we can't design human institutions that are sufficiently incorrupt not to screw with siting and maintenance of them, nor stay on mission long enough to run them safely, because of relentless profit seeking and maintenance deferral.” Aside from...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Yeah - “Hooray, hooray, the first of May, Outdoor wanking begins today!” doesn’t really have the same ring to it....

    Tumbrels? Who cares whether they’re back ordered when The List is getting on for a billion?...

    @1417 - aaaargh. You’re making me flashback to my father rabbiting on about the next book was intended to write about them....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Why have the death cultists gone after the USAF academy so vigorously? Because military aircraft are fast, noisy, scary, armed and in quick reach of most of the US. When you really are aiming to take over a country you...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Smokers lungs? Well I guess they’re already cured. Perhaps the way the lung tissue is pickled to leather-like form prevents the virus from being able to get a good grip? Or perhaps it just that a smoker is so accustomed...

    You surely can’t think that the world of fandom is exempt form stupidity? I mean, how else can we explain that some fen think Star Trek is better than Babylon 5? But I do agree that everything posted by David...

    “Will antibodies be of use? ” If antibodies derived from survivor’s plasma is useful I guarantee that people will start to disappear off the streets. Sure, a willing donor can give enough to help maybe 2-3 people; a drained victim...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    @144 -not so long ago the US airforce was under heavy attack from christianist subversives. The Colorado academy was the poster child for this; an old friend was active in trying to fight back. Obviously the intent was to gain...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Re those battery recycling thoughts - 'Fully Charged' (see youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzz4CoEgSgWNs9ZAvRMhW2A) will have a show about exactly this some time soon. I recommend the show generally; it's not just about EVs but covers wider non-fossil-fool stuff. And it's Kryten (see...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    @1269 - I completely agree with your main point. Luckily, battery recycling isn't urgent as in "we can't make progress until..." which means we *can* sensibly start pushing EVs hard. But yes, it's important to get working on right now...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    @1244 - Whilst being ahead of the need (for battery recycling) is a Good Thing, it isn't very urgent. It seems clear that current packs are likely to have a pretty good lifespan as vehicle power units before another good...

  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Re: hospital ship - Lady Bridget’s immediate response was that they are keeping it ready as an escape vessel for trumps rich buddies. Given that the us navy is now a pirate fleet that seems less implausible than I’d like....

  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    To the best of my knowledge it used to swap over for each election, presumably so as not to permanently connect them. I guess like so many things that might possibly hint of non-partisanship, its time has passed....

    “There are plenty of reasons to dislike Ted Cruz“ - tru dat. If we’re clever enough we might be able to keep him convinced that things are bad and he’ll keep self isolated forever. Meanwhile the orange asshole is trying...
