What it says in the Title, various rambling, musings and such of one Magnus von Thornwood, Baron Regina and his alter ego (or is the other way around, I get confused about it sometimes), basic boring blog stuff, really are you still reading this? Good for you.

In Moot Member Blogs My second hand life. Entry Tools Rating: 5 Stars!
  #7 New May 12th, 2010 05:47 AM
So here I am working on the newest and best computer I have yet to purchase (having found out that the "keyboard" on the iPad bites rocks for those of us old enough to have been trained to keep our fingers resting on the home row, do that on the iPad and well, you get a nice long line of gibberish) when I realize most of the awesome things in my life are second hand (which since Victoria is a refurbish, she counts too. Yeah, I don't have a car, so as Ambassador to the Machines and a mild transh ...More Read More

So being of the Tribe of Science Fiction, I think we need to start a new set of laws for cybernetics. The go something like this...

We of the Tribe of Science Fiction, the Prophets of the Future, having given ample warnings which you heed not, shall be reminded once again of the Most Holy Words:
One. Thou shall not make a machine mind that is capable of controlling every other computer on the planet.

Two. If you do violate the First Law, then thou shall surely not then give it the Unho

Yet another entry in Steve Jobs' Maybe I Shouldn't Have Fired Them and Killed Their Newton Project (I wonder if he thinks that about eMate too)...List.

This thing is like a straight up TL 8.5+ pocket computer. Quite cute, although I do wonder if there is a Model with out a camera?

So, being that I love Traveller and signed up for a pre-order of T5, I waited for my disc to come, which it did, lucky me!

Now, having pre-ordered, (ok, they let me before that on my word that I would, which I did) I got into the infamous T5 Private Forum. Had a boat load of fun checking out the new version of my all time favorite game, actually still having a boat load of fun.

So there we are down in the forum when some smart ass (no, not me, some other smart ass, there are more than jus ...More Read More

...or not, but, people might want to think about mouthing off and more importantly, bring the themselves (in sort of bad way) to the Captain's Attention, we are after all Citizens, Travelling on the Ancient One's Personal Yacht for free (most, though some of us chose to take a Middle or High Passage).

So here I am back and finally online for what I hope is a good long time.

I do wonder sometimes what on God's green Earth I should put in here.

I suppose I could bitch about why I both love and hate 'Heroes', or why I lately feel as if I am an enemy of the state, how much I love my cat (whole huge bunches ) or something...

So, here what's up in Magnusland these days, I found out (well I pretty much guessed) that I have crappy credit and in order to secure (now that's a laugh, but mo ...More Read More

So, here is my first blog and in the Tradition of the Weird, I felt I had to make note of this occasion.

I got hit by the weirdest of burglars today...well last night...actually I don't know. One of the creepy parts of burgs.

I as you might know recently moved. Cool, so far. Well, since I am now closer to my RL work, today I decide to come home and sleep in my own bed with my beloved cat. Oh I am so clever....

Well, I get home to find that someone has been in my apartment with a key, s ...More Read More
