Surprising no one.

Finally finished the patch to InvTrend I wanted to make today. Running off this morning to the bank, while necessary, delayed things.

Mom doesn't like my new desktop background. I think I shall be keeping it. :)

And now, going to try and make those cookies. You've missed out on the chance for the spankings.

Of course she doesn't. Women in underwear are involved. Your mom doesn't strike me as the kind of mother who'd be open to her son browsing pictures of half-naked women.

And don't generalize. I nearly smacked you a couple times already. Cookies are important.

Ok, a) that picture is FAR more benign than Ral's old full-frontal-nudity male [shudder]. and b) thats a good picture, and oddly enough its in the ProjectT reference photo directory as I just had to download it when it appeared in a google image search for images of 'eclipse'. Small world! Or, I guess, small virtual-world!

c) InvTrend patch = t3h l33tn3ss. Thx; I'll get the proportions and the manual finished tomorow, I'll also let you know if we're presenting this friday or next.

d) Cookies rule!

Speaking as a girl, there should be more full-frontal male nudity! Enough tits onscreen, bring on the penises! Yay for penises!

What was Ral's picture?

I know it was a pic of some fairly buff male rapper, but I honestly didn't notice it was full frontal. Sadly, I don't see it lying around anywhere, either. If I find it, I'll put it up for you. :P

"one of these is not like the others..."
Crusader Kings, Dawn of War, Neverwinter Nights...NOLF2? :p

Also, to give this late night post some meet, C, I require sci-fi recommendations from your cavernous mental archives of the genre. I was at a used bookshop the today and picked up The Voices of Heaven and am totally digging it. Any further recommendations? I know I've read a few others a million years ago so, really, any suggestions are fair game. Please and thanks.

Re: "one of these is not like the others..."
Hey, NOLF2 is fun! You should try it. :P

And, really, my cavernous mental archives are more in the fantasy genre, but for SF...I shall assume you're already familiar with Frank Herbert, Issac Asimov, Roger Zelazny (read Amber. Now. NOW!), or similarly famous older authors.

I can recommend anything by Lois McMaster Bujold, nearly anything by David Weber, especially the Honor Harrington books. Also, Iain Banks' Culture novels, Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars novels (really, _really_ hard SF here, a trilogy telling the tale of terraforming Mars).

Eric Flint and L.E. Modesitt are all right, and so is Elizabeth Moon.

Anyone else feel like offering suggestions?

Huge fan of Weber's work myself; you'll never look at something like 'star wars', or even Dune [which was quite good, but inconsistent for the majority of the series] the same.

Re: "one of these is not like the others..."
Actually, hah, I meant specifically if you've read any of Pohl's specifically that you wanted to recommend :D

Re: "one of these is not like the others..."
Oh. Well, then no. I've actually never read Pohl.

Silly boy. Be more specific!

Artistically it's irritating that the picture cuts off in the middle of one of their hands...

And you should move some of those icons off to the right-hand side, of course...
