      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. BITCOIN,,, anyone playing that game?

    I wonder if the asshole that was running around trying to do transactions with my debit card data bought the info with some form of digital currency (bank caught it pretty quick & most were declined).

    Actually the ground effect thingy might have some legs, yeah, we'll call it the Kerosene Cup (for all the jet fuel burned) no more whining about sail this & foil that, however Putinland already has quite a leg up!

    The "Sprawl" trilogy is covered in the 3 novels "Neuromancer", "Count Zero", & "Mona Lisa Overdrive" all by the Vancouver B.C. author William Gibson, Bill had a recent nonfiction release (Distrust That Particular Flavor) in which he looks back on these books & basically states that they are quite derivative of 80s sensibilities & is rather self deprecating about it, something I have always admired when authors are like that. Even before the last book in that series was released he had started another which is generally known as the "Bridge" trilogy which in order of release is covered by "Virtual Light", "The Idoru", & "All Tomorrow's Parties" these books were set in a version of the late 2000s where nano-tech is an emergent force, once again the man states that there is a heavy 90s influence. In some ways the most intriguing trilogy is something that was very much set in the here & now, it would be more accurate to call them spy novels, the 1st one in the cycle which is titled "Pattern Recognition" took a sharp turn from it's original outline after the 9/11 terror attacks, it's also the 1st time I myself became aware of online forums (in spite of the fact I already belonged to one!), it was followed by "Spook Country", & "Zero History", collectively this forms the "Hubertus Bigend" trilogy. The most recent release is titled "The Peripheral" & has a very interesting data transfer thru time angle. BTW the 1st book I mentioned won the trifecta, Hugo, Nebula, & Phillip. K. Dick awards, he also has one short story comp, "Burning Chrome".

    Clearly the Seattle D is not what it once was, nice that it was getting interesting at the end & so damn close to tying it up! Gruden kept harping on the penalties & probably rightly so.

    Enough about noisy stinky old dogs, it's SciFi for this cat person, just decided to re read my entire Bill Gibson collection starting with the "Sprawl" trilogy.
  7. Since almost anything, how about Anime?

    Same here, oddly I have not had a chance to watch the most recent film.
  8. Since almost anything, how about Anime?

    Just re re watched one of the best eps of GITS stand alone complex 2nd gig's productions, the episode that introduces Gouda, Jigabachis gone awol & the total fusion with the major & Saito, the title theme has a line that makes me think of the current situ with the V.O.R, "follow me, fast & free, we are soldiers stand or die, we rise or fall!
  9. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    ^ This would be a great time for more frequent updates, this positioning may determine the finish of the leg.
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Good one, that empty deck pic makes one wonder.
  11. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Agree, according to that snapshot brewskis in a good spot, (I only post in this thread when I'm in my cups).
  12. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    & not the only taker on that action.
  13. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Take their lumps & join the pressure party further south? I dunno either.
  14. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I remember quite well when I learned how true that can be 11/22/1985, Seattle had a very rare early snow event on that day & I was welding (with stick, overhead) on a telephone switching building, fucking hands were FREEZING! Finally set the stinger aside & ran the bolts bare handed, that warmed them up quite nicely.
