#6308: I just realized this book will never be published.

AV has a female focus character who:
1) Is not instantly good at everything she tries
2) can not beat up a man who is similarly skilled in martial arts
3) won't cut her hair solely so she can wear a space suit
4) likes being a woman and would never change that
5) when abruptly thrust into a command situation, fails.
This book is doomed.

So, the airplanes were flying below a hundred feet?

Here's a hint: the only time you fly below a hundred feet is when you're landing. No one was landing in the middle of the friggin' ocean.

John C. Wright continues to fisk The Last Jedi. There's a reason the movie felt so lackluster: it was.

This chart is an excellent piece of evidence for the claim that we fell into a depression in 2000. Summary: "...China has been strip-mining the U.S. economy of high value-added industries and high-wage jobs...."

That's why I'm not worried about a "trade war" with China. They need us a lot more than we need them.

Yesterday I tried an experiment.

You see, I realized that if I were to borrow the 120 GB SSD from the laptop Seiren I could put it into my desktop computer, copy WoW to it, and see how much faster it was.

It took me an inordinate amount of time to find a frigging SATA cable, but then it was a matter of minutes to plug it in and check it out. Took a while to copy WoW over (it's a mere 55 GIGABYTES WTF) but once it was there, it was fast.

A loading screen that takes 2-3 minutes with the spinning metal drive takes about ten seconds with the SSD.

So--tomorrow we're going to Best Buy to pick up a couple 120 GB drives. I'll install them in our computers and we'll use them for WoW. Just in time for the new expansion pack!

Well, that's about all I've got. Today was a Friday, as usual, and nothing special about it. Whee!
