<quoting=the-syreth-clan postID=2505 threadID=147> Not my post but something I saw on sizeof.cat.

I find this quite funny given Wani released this year. Someone in /freak/ is spinning ...

<quoting=the-syreth-clan postID=2501 threadID=147> I think that is what caused me to realize, like Nietzsche said, my belief in the christian god has become unbelievable. My muses — Martina and Erika — are entities I interact with on a daily basis. I know ...

Spent Saturday night thinking about consciously choosing to believe, and how ridiculous it is that some people think that reading the Bible can lead somebody to faith when it led me away from it -- especially when Christianity is so frequently misused ...

Here's another one for you. Kind of a downer since I'm griping about electoral politics in the USA.

quoting Eternity:

Top-shelf post, but on a slightly unrelated note: I've always preferred referring to them as coats. And I feel that euphemism should be more popular!

As in raincoats? I've heard that one before, but ...

Just a little bit about ad blockers. I use one for the same reason I wear condoms. It isn't safe to bareback strangers or their websites.

What are you currently reading?

by starbreaker in the library on may 4, 2024

Been reading Heavy Time and Hellburner by C. J. Cherryh. Asteroid mining, dirty corporate shenanigans, murder, and cover-ups. They're part of her "Company Wars" sequence. If you've seen The Expense, the depiction of Belters in that series owe a lot ...

quoting the-syreth-clan:

Good old (old) Debian, up with its usual antics I see.

"${DISTRO}" gonna "${DISTRO}". Every one of them has their quirks. For example, if I want a current Emacs on Slackware I've got to compile ...

quoting orchids:

nice thanks for that. I knew about WSL but never messed around it enough to speak intelligently on it in a post like this, but I'll add that disclaimer.

No worries.

quoting the-syreth-clan:

I would rather die a NEET than live a serf.

If I was a bachelor and didn't have expensive tastes I'd feel the same.

quoting AmylaseChan:

I have my own website, but it's very messy and incomplete.

Aren't personal websites supposed to be messy and incomplete? Welcome to the basement.

Add "writing" board to "creative" section

by starbreaker in community feedback on apr 9, 2024

Added an old story of mine. This reminds me of the section on bbs.stardestroyer.net where the late Stuart Slade posted his Salvation War novels.

The Milgram Battery

by starbreaker in creative writing on apr 9, 2024

Back in the real world…


What will it be this time? Morgan lost count of the scenarios the nightmare sequencer presented him long ago, along with his grip on time. He had been a prisoner of war, offered freedom and a new home if only he would ...

The Milgram Battery

by starbreaker in creative writing on apr 9, 2024

Meanwhile, in the real world… (reprise)


“Quadruple the current dosage.” Isaac Magnin delivered the order without raising his voice. The technician attending Morgan, who laid quiescent in the nightmare sequencer’s crèche, nodded, and Magnin grinned ...

The Milgram Battery

by starbreaker in creative writing on apr 9, 2024

Meanwhile, in the real world…


Karen Del Rio shook her head as the AI interpreting Morgan Cooper’s simulator-induced dream halted the scenario, allowing him to rest inside the nightmare sequencer. “The theory underpinning the Milgram Factor assumes ...

The Milgram Battery

by starbreaker in creative writing on apr 9, 2024

Theme


Morgan Cooper studied the experimenter, ignoring the hand he offered as a polite gesture. His muddy eyes were those of the technician who helped him into the simulation crèche and hooked him up. His leathery hands were those of the nurse ...

The Milgram Battery

by starbreaker in creative writing on apr 9, 2024

"The Milgram Battery" is something I wrote in 2012 for the Curiosity Quills: Primetime anthology (November 2013).
