Testing Blog Comments Moderation Feature

EDIT: I can't believe that you guys are absolutely no help at all on this! I'm trying an experiment to figure out how something works here. All I need, all I ask, is a comment or two from someone other than myself. Fourteen views to date, and zero comments. It's quick and easy; why not help out?

Until recently I did not know that comments on a CotI Moot Blog could be moderated. Now that I know they can, I'm curious as to how it works. I think I ...More Read More

Proofreading Traveller 5.v10

One of the nice things about the Internet is the variety of distant people that it allows you to meet, converse with, and form friendships with, despite never having seen them face-to-face. One of the first things that I did when I got online in the early 1990s was to become active in Usenet groups and email lists related to my favorite games, Traveller and GURPS (their fusion in the form of GURPS Traveller wouldn't happen until 1998). I even managed to participa ...More Read More

Back in Hospital Again

Back in the Hospital again. My wife is the admitted patient this time and I am the "guest," but I remain disabled and ill myself, and being away from home makes everything less convenient and more difficult, from getting around this place with my crutch or walking stick, to getting clothes clean, to keeping devices and chargers organized (brought my laptop but can't use it bc power cord apparently fell aside somewhere in the last minute packing and loading everything i ...More Read More

Back in the Saddle Again...

Back where a friend is a friend... (or at least a well-motivated NPC!)

Yeah, I followed a whim a couple weeks ago and asked Magnus if I could bring my old PC Frank Masuda (from his previous attempt at a T5 Permatic Imperium PbP game, in 2014) back to life in his new T5 Permatic Imperium PbP game. Mags said Yes, so I'm in a Game! We've been getting off to a bit of a slow start, just trying to get our 3 party members all FTF at the downport, but I think we've fi ...More Read More

New Emoji? Just for Me?

I don't know if this emoji is actually new or not, just that I never saw it before (you can find it by clicking [More] at the bottom of the "Smilies" box).

But it certainly looks like it could have been custom-made for me, copying the art from an old (late 90s? early 00s?) internet video (I forget, how did we exchange such things before YouTube and FaceBook?).

Energy Availability (also H. Beam Piper)

[Ahem. Had a hard time figuring out where to post this. If it reads a little weird in parts, that's because it started out as an email letter to my friend timerover51 and morphed in the course of writing into a forum post in which I'm seeking the ideas of CotI at large.]

[And now it's a blog post as well!]

Glancing back at what I wrote about what [he] wrote about what Piper wrote , I was thinking again about Piper's early-Federation nuclear-electric power units and later-TFH direct conversion of matter to energy. We both had problems thinking how to use those in a roleplaying game such as Traveller.

Now, I think our problem wasn't so much figuring out the mundane effects, as not =wanting= some of those effects and their natural consequences. ...More Read More

Over the Moon, Back in the Moot!

I am just over the moon at having a friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) sponsor me for Moot membership! Among other things, that means I have this Blog back (can write new entries again) and have a decent sized PM mailbox again so I don't have to manage it every couple days (download and delete) to make room for incoming PMs!

Aside from the member benefits, I urge all CotI regulars to join the Moot at whatever Rank you can afford, just to support th ...More Read More

Sick of Being Sick

Had trigeminal neuralgia since Dec 2012. Finally got my surgery for that about three weeks ago, felt worse than I did before the surgery. Came back to doctors this week for some follow-ups, got violently ill, back to the ER to get admitted w diagnosis of meningitis - still trying to figure out what kind of meningitis exactly, so not sure how long I'll be in here on super-duper-antibiotics. Looking forward to some TL advances in medicine while I am still around to benefit.

In Moot Member Blogs Still Crazy After All These Years... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #58 New January 19th, 2015 12:17 AM
SpaceBadger Status Update: So, I lived through the brain surgery (either that or Iím a ghost with great telekinesis skills for computer operation). Still not ready to resume as player; havenít yet gotten over the ďhumpĒ of actually feeling better than I did before the surgery, although I do feel Iíll be getting past that soon. Also, hand-eye coordination seems to be lagging, so I make more typing errors and then it takes me longer to spot and fix them. Hoping that too shall pass before long.
