The Cannoscan series is good, inexpensive, and works.

Provided you update EVERY SCRAP OF DRIVERS YOU CAN FIND.

Fail this, and it does horrible things to contrast. Horrible I say.

Dear Saundra ( since Dr. Lee scares me for some reason) you have pioneered so much for the same reason that i have embraced extra-dimensional travel it seems but tell me (keeping in mind that unlike most of you Volinar seems to be a dimensional constant. grounded in space time as it were) have you ...

Re: The nature of evil

To Drs Lyse, Sappho, Miller; and any other that's gone 'white hat' since Evil-Con 2021. I've been considering the nature of Evil in your world, and find that for a planet as full of supervillians as yours is, suprizingly little real evil is done. My questions: what's the most evil thing you've done...

Actually I've been really really BAD about getting the webftp thingy updated along with the LJ feed because the webftp is made of epic fail.

And the regular FTP stopped working for some reason a while back :P

Eliza is actually quite well protected even without her armor, but her statements express how much LESS well protected she is without it. She can fly, but not glide. As we saw in the nulling field, this is potentially significant. She could survive some pretty violent explosions but her "soft, human...

Re: A few questions...

Dear Saundra Have you ever figured out what makes the time-space continuum lime-flavoured? Well, technically it isn't exactly *lime* flavored, more of a vaguely citrus flavor caused by the ionizing effect portals have on air. Essentially, the "sour" receptors of the tongue are being directly stimul...

Re: A few questions...

To Allen: Do you have any plans on ever going into detail about the Change Plague? (Either in UH2 or just here in the forums?) No. The Change Plague is, if anything, a placeholder and a touchstone to remind myself which figures in history should be thought of as "people" or "animal-people". Aww, I ...

Quite the cliffhanger we have now. I hope a master's in gravitics doesn't require much knowledge of aerodynamics.

The nulling field prevents gravity-based technology from functioning. Naturally occurring gravity is either unaffected or being allowed to function by whatever technology creates the field. Thus, Sissy's eye-fi can translate glyphs, Eliza's implants (except her lifters) remain fully functional, and ...

Aheh. The Dragon's design is, uh, fairly heavily influenced by the Raven from Princess Tutu. As such he does look a bit avian. However birds don't usually come with teeth like that.

It's actually quite straightforward, because AutoGenesis lets you treat text files as legitimate parts of your update. I'll occasionally put text into a file marked 20060503B.htm along with a comic called 20060503A.png and AutoGenesis will put the text file after the comic, (alpha order) and integra...

Quite right. Another example (although it didn't end up being as demonstrative as it might have been) is Volair's telling Saundra that he might not end up marrying her after all, since they only have limited observations and not the whole picture. In a universe where one's measurements can be truste...

I prefer the story ones that aren't trying to dictate time travel. Of course if I ever wrote a universe that allowed time travel. Time Travel would be the same as going to Las Vegas choosing the game with the worst odds and then putting all your money on it. But back to Sissy and the other girl it'...
