In Moot Member Blogs Tech and Law Levels Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #96 New February 18th, 2019 01:45 AM
Well, I did some checking and determined that some Guests can view member blogs. I am not sure if they account for all of the added views, as there are a couple of hundred in the past two days. Still, it is a bit disconcerting that I cannot be sure who is reading this. Such is life, I guess.

Still working on historical Tech Levels, and hopefully will be done and have them posted tomorrow. I am going to top out at Tech Level 8 for the present time, and probably make some changes to the hi ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Cepheus Engine Tech Levels Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #95 New February 12th, 2019 10:47 AM
I am going to have to tackle the Cepheus Engine Tech Levels pretty soon. They are a bit too amorphous for my taste, although they do have a couple of good points. Putting fusion guns at Tech Level 14 is not a bad idea, although that will get the combat crowd a bit ticked off. The idea of my sector is exploration, not blasting everything in sight while encased in combat armor. Besides that, on some planets, blasting away could have quite unintended side effects. More ideas to follow.

In Moot Member Blogs Rat-sitting Et Al Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #94 New February 12th, 2019 03:12 AM
Well, we are rat-sitting my daughter two rats while she and her husband head off to visit my brother-in-law and his wife in Florida. Somehow, rats just do not strike the same feelings as a cat. Once the rat-sitting is over, we will be looking for a kitten or cat to adopt.

More snow tonight, and it looks like into later today. We already are over the average for a winter when it comes to snow, so it will be interesting to see how much we get by the end of March. We still have more than ha ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Wet Navy Design Rules 2 Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #93 New February 11th, 2019 03:45 PM
I keep debating about posting at least corrections to the Wet Navy Design Rules that exist, starting with the Power section and then moving on. The Hull section needs a lot of work as well. It is like he has researched some of the mechanics without ever looking at the whole or actually looking at some ship cross-sections or layouts. A Brassey's Naval Annual of around 1900 would seriously disabuse him of his ideas for steam ship propulsion, while one of several different books would educate hi ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Wet Navy Design Rules Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #92 New February 11th, 2019 05:21 AM
I just downloaded and ran quickly through Terry McInnes Wet Navy rules for Traveller: The New Era, probably my most disliked edition of the Traveller Rules that have appeared. That says a lot considering how much I dislike MegaTraveller. What bothers me the most is that people are going to download these and think that they actually have some validity, as after all, they are on the Internet.

I read his Power section, and think that he has no understanding or concept of propulsion systems f ...More Read More

One problem with bringing home an empty pet carrier is that it brings back memories of making a similar decision, but not for a pet. In the early morning hours, around 2 AM, on May 10, 1985, I approved the discontinuance of life support measures for our first-born son, Brent David. He was born 3 months premature in 1984, under circumstances that nearly cost me my wife and him due to a very severe case of toxemia for my wife. He lived for 5 months and those 5 months were a massive struggle. ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Empty Pet Carrier Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #90 New February 5th, 2019 09:33 PM
Well, I brought the pet carrier home from the vet empty today. Our cat, Tinkerbelle, had a tumor in her abdomen which was why she was not eating, so she was put to sleep. That is the fourth time I have been the one to bring the carrier home empty. It also means that for the first time since December of 1975 we do not have a cat in residence. I will talk with my wife tonight as to what we are going to do. I like having a cat in the house, and she grew up with one. We will see. I told the ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Religion in Traveller 2 Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #89 New February 5th, 2019 04:21 PM
Whereas religion plays a fairly large role in Real World life, it is essentially ignored in Traveller, aside from a few mentions in Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society articles, the longest of which is the K'kree article by by J. Andrew Keith. The general view of religion in Traveller tends to the negative, which is especially true when it comes to government types, with Religious Dictatorship and Religious Autocracy being portrayed as two of the more extreme government types, with Religiou ...More Read More

It appears to a degree that discussion of religion on a blog might be a bit iffy. Mentioning being at church appears to be acceptable, but I suspect any mention of the Men's Bible Study in Hebrews, as to what we are covering, might get a lot more iffy from the standpoint of whoever besides Magnus Von Thornwood is looking over my shoulder. The most recent post, which I posted about 2AM this morning, after dozing off a couple of times, already had three views, one of which was the said Magnus. ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Eurorail Game At Church Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #87 New February 5th, 2019 04:35 AM
While at church tonight, my partner in monitoring the main entrance and I had a very good game of Eurorails. We have played Australian Rails twice, and he has caught on to the game mechanics very quickly. He is an ex-Naval officer who recently retired, and we have a good time together. The game tonight was nip-and-tuck, and when we had to end, I was ahead by 226 million Euros to 202 millions Euros. That is the first time I managed to win a game. If you have not played one of Mayfair Games ...More Read More
