Re: Well, hell.

Lightning does strange things. Twenty or so years ago, I had lightning come in through the phone line. Blew the chips apart in the computer, took out tv, refrigerator and several other things. But the strangest I didn’t find until winter. It took out one of the four wires running from my thermostat ...

Re: Advice from techs

Connections are often the problem as machines age. If your getting power to the fan connection, check both volts and amps, then check if the connections are tight. With the six months run time and then failing you may have a weakened connecter, or oxidation at the connections. Use cleaning solution....

Re: Revolution Chapter 10 (Spoilers)

I also wonder what effect being a Generation has on former enemies? It seems all Generations have a special affinity with other Generations and possibly genetically dislikes bringing harm to other Generations. It’s true there is no alteration in how they treat other non Generations. But they don’t s...

Re: Revolution Chapter 10 (Spoilers)

I seem to recall Jason had to go through a genetic alteration after visiting Moridon and catching the virus that was designed to kill any Kimdori that went there. How will the new Generations react the the atmosphere of Moridon being toxic to generations and will anyone come up with a new virus to w...

Re: Revolution Ch 7 - (SPOILERS)

Jason is currently being held back by the denmother. The fact the medical services are almost considered godlike in Fey society adds to that. However if Denmother reports back she is unable to penetrate their security Jason will act with force that will announce to the universe at large... Don’t mes...

Re: Revolution Chapter 2 (Spoilers)

They would not have to hold the systems. Just sell them at a greatly reduced price. The threat that the Confederation posses would make even the largest of the mega corps think twice about open warfare. The Confederation has already proven they can traverse between galaxies and appear in any star sy...

Re: Revolution Chapter 2 (Spoilers)

I sometimes mix up to two Andromeda groups. That said, the group taking over the galaxy, hasn’t done so yet, and they just got into a major fight with the Confederation and lost. Since the Confederation is actively helping to evacuate the other group, they likely will not want to go all out war unti...

Re: Revolution Chapter 2 (Spoilers)

If the Syndicate is pulling out of Andromeda wouldn’t they essentially be giving their star systems to the confederation? The Confederation would then give over their holdings to the only corporation in Andromeda that assisted the Confederation. Thus Jason’s new corporation now has many star systems...

Re: Interdictor maths

I believe Fel went over the interdictor math in a post years ago when he first incorporated them into his story. He discribed the large numbers that would be require for a true three layer system, and explained how he was going to use a two layer system to protect Earth. It might have been modified ...

Re: Updatish.

Fel, just read your tweet. OMG, it could be a chapter all on it's own. Epic battle, that doesn't include Jason and his super brain. BTW, I read tweets but never respond to them, but had to comment.. For everyone else go read them.

Re: Updatish.

Fel. I was getting dizzy but didn't pass out. I was always fine when the docs checked, even ekgs and echocardiogram. I finally decided to try my old Fitbit and found my heart rate dropping to 43bpm. Long story short I now have a pacemaker. It may have been a fluke but better safe. Find an old fitnes...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 10 [Spoilers]

I agree with the Kimdori warpath if something actually happens to Jason. Personally, I think he should expand his prosthesis idea to include both legs above the knee and both arms above the elbow as well as eyes and hearing. This gives him the advantage of over riding standard usage abilities if he ...

Re: A galaxy full of generations

When the new generations where transformed, it was only because of the Kimdori advanced medical that they survived. As for the other generations they tend to die very young due to cancer. Most don't even have children. How many have gone to the demon bank home world to set up accounts and died myste...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

What I find strange is, they find the super ship with that massive hole and a few months later they are putting those kinds of holes in super ships. The first super ships where destroyed a long time ago. It's hard to fathom two species on the same technological path. Could there be a strange version...
