Re: Inception, chapter 12.

You rotten so-and-so! I was just ready to head for bed! Now I have to stay up!

Thanks, Fel!

Re: Paypal Freak-out!

Was actually going to donate some money in the next couple of weeks. Will be going from a poor student to a well paying job next month. Your books have been a nice and welcome distraction on many many occasions. I could send you a postcard from London if post up your address! Thanks Ze Just go here...

Re: Possibilities?

Could a Generation use a medical sleep inducer to jump hyperspace? Apparently, it will put anyone to sleep in a minute or less, and it will let them awaken with the same speed.

This would be a way for a Generation to make a long jump, at least in theory.

Re: Paypal Freak-out!

Fel, if I were to use PayPal to send you the money I feel I owe for what you've given me (us), that balance would more than double. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately from your point of view, I don't have the money to send, nor am I ever likely to. You have no idea how much your writing has meant...

Re: This is not my month.

You could also look at LibreOffice. It is available in 64 bit, it's free, and it does everything MS Office does and works on Office formats transparently. I've been using it since it was StarOffice, which has been a while.

I highly recommend it.

Re: Inception, chapter 11 [Spoilers]

Kumi having her daughter made me think. Is she going to copy Myleena and have Jason father her second child?

And Rahne ... is she going to have a child by Jason? It would make sense to me.

Re: Serious update.

If the bent conduit is kinked, I wouldn't even try, the risk is much too high. That sharp edge in the kink can easily cut through the insulation and short out your service. If the bend is an arc, then it might be possible to bend it back. Just use extreme caution, that is 220V AC, and short circuit ...

Re: "About the Author."

I have 'proofed' versions of nearly everything Fel has done. Being a proofer, those little errors tend to make my teeth grind, so I usually fix them. I tend to focus on spelling, punctuation, word choice (i.e. there/their/they're) and continuity. I rarely edit. The simplest would probably be to use ...

Re: A new plane for Kit?

GBLW - that's a rough combination. Best wishes on that. I haven't flown commercial myself in at least that long; I object to being treated like a criminal just for wanting to travel on a plane. Wolfee - There are a lot of differences between the two. A Starship may have been one of the inspirations ...

Re: Possibilities?

Something that occurred to me ... Generations may want to be jacked, too. Some of them, at least. Mainly, obviously, to deal with hyperspace, especially if they're jumping with a jacked crew. Admitted, it won't happen often, but it is possible. There may be other benefits, too. Jason, and Rann as he...

Yes! I thought this would come out this weekend. Fel, you are awesome! And about +5 for the youtube video. That was excellent.

Re: Possibilities?

Let me guess ... about 7 or 8 books from now?

I have no doubt that the Parri know a lot more than anyone suspects. It takes incredible knowledge and discipline to astral travel over interstellar distances.

You are truly a diabolically evil author. :evil: :twisted:

Re: A new plane for Kit?

Yes, it's expensive, at $7.2M. On the other hand, a new C90 King Air is over $3.6M. So twice the price. Not too outrageous considering what you get. The price is similar to a CJ3 ($7.5M). Parts? Might be a problem, but the kind of folks who can afford one of these aren't known for patience, so the c...
