Comments: Spoiled by Power

At least it wasn't 20 degrees out. I hate it when that happens, but opening the fridge isn't a problem.

And what's even WORSE than no microwave?? NO INTERNET!!! Good thing you guarded the fridge; I usually have to duct tape at least three wraps around the handles when the power goes out here just to keep the ice cream solid!

See, here's the really sad thing: I can't get on-line at home anyway. shameful for a blogger, I know, but I'm still not connected. :-P

(That is why you don't hear a lot out of me on the weekends. ...unless of course I'm stuck working on the weekends.)

Err... Just do us all a favor and warn us in advance if you start on the first series by the same author, OK? :-)

[Yes, I know, it was just a power outage, but I don't even want to have to deal with a minor approximation of man-eating yellow centaurs, OK?]

I'll have to keep that in mind.

Actually, this is not typical reading for me. John is a friend, and he was kind enough to give me a copy of his book. I figured that if I read it, maybe a percentage of his sci-fi/military tangents (to otherwise normal conversations) would begin making some sense. ; )

(So, other than man-eating centaurs, how was the first series?)

The first series was very good! For further understanding of some references in both, go to, and start at the beginning. It'll make a sentient AI that looks like a rabbit make more sense.
