Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671

The LEGO Iron Giant - http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/407406

Okay even if you're not a LEGO fan this one ought to impress you.

Benjamin Kobold has built this incredible scale model of the Iron Giant and Hogarth out of LEGO. It stands 4'7" in height and weighs 60 lbs. He doesn't say how many pieces of LEGO were used, but I'm going with a lot.

Munchkin Adventure Time - http://amzn.to/1GvRZqh

There are a lot of versions of Munchkin out there these days, probably more than I could list, but this one does stand out rather. As the name suggests it's themed after the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time and it's very thoroughly themed too, right down to the custom die that comes with the set.

It follows the same basic rules as Munchkin of course, but with brand new cards and artwork.

The destruction of the Death Star caused widespread cuts in Imperial spending. As a result it was mandated that all levels of government utilize public transportation whenever possible.

So I'm thinking...

I want to start providing unique (or at least early access to) content for mailing list subscribers and I'm considering what I could offer.

Right now I'm committed to the weekly serial here and on my blog so that will stay public. Similarly the book and tv reviews I do are intended for everyone.

Some possibilities that have occurred to me so far:

- A second weekly serial that is published to the mailing list first and won't appear elsewhere in any form for a specified amount of time (weeks)

- Exclusive stand alone scenes (like the one I've just written and will be sending to the list next week (all going to plan) that aren't posted anywhere else.

- Perhaps some background information about a character/organization from one of my stories?

- Outlines of future plans, with the opportunity for mailing list subscribers to offer feedback?

The tradeoff here is that if I do those things on the mailinglist I would have to not do them (or at least do them much less) on here or elsewhere.

I'm specifically not going the offer a free book/short story route because (a) I don't have one to offer, (b) even if I did there's nothing to upsell people to right now as far as finished material is concerned and (c) people might only subscribe for the freebie.

Thoughts anyone?___

Meeting the PMSA

So I'm working on the short scene that I'm going to give exclusively to my mailing list.  It introduces the Paranormal, Mystical and Spiritual Association (or PMSA) a group that I plan to use in future Douglas Brodie stories.

I don't expect this precise scene to appear in the stories, it's more of a lightly humorous interlude.

In telling the bearded and bespectacled man, whose name now escapes me, that he shouldn't continue his experiments with pentagonal summoning matrixes my aim was to keep him alive. I also hoped to avoid unleashing the hoards of a demon plane on our world, but that was more of a secondary goal.

Your Daily Dose of Fiction: Twilight on Olympus by Eric Leif Davin - http://www.galaxysedge.com/n6.htm
Genre: Science Fiction

Ares fell in flames across the Martian sky. The spacecraft’s braking aeroshell heated to a glowing white hot from atmospheric friction and began to melt like an ice cube left too long in the summer sun. Molten globs splattered and streaked the sides of the landing module as the vehicle plunged steeply into the thin air of Mars. Phoenix Castillo fired the braking jets, trying desperately to bring the craft up into a more horizontal descent. It wasn’t working. They knew insertion into elliptical orbit would be a dicey maneuver. Come in too high and the Ares would have ricocheted off the Martian atmosphere into deep space like a stone skipped across a pond; too low and gravity’s unforgiving embrace would bring the craft down too fast, ending Ares’ sixmonth jo... more »

Come in too high and the Ares would have ricocheted off the Martian atmosphere into deep space like a stone skipped across a pond; too low and gravity’s unforgiving embrace would bring the craft down too fast, ending Ares’ six month journey from Earth in fiery death. They came in too low.

Beyond the flaming port Phoenix could see the red Tharsis uplands mushrooming across the horizon, closer all the time. She burned the last of the craft’s precious fuel, hoping to at least hit the surface like she’d tried to hit the atmosphere, a glancing blow at an oblique angle. She heard her second in command yell in her helmet radio. She glanced left to where he was strapped in next to her. Frightened eyes behind his faceplate was the last thing she saw as the Ares slammed into the Martian surface and oblivion engulfed her.

Dune Fan Art: Leto II, the Tyrant by AndrewRyanArt -  http://andrewryanart.deviantart.com/art/Dune-Leto-II-the-tyrant-328098474

Here's an imposing scene inspired by Frank Herbert's Dune. It shows Lyto II in his pre-sandworm state. As the artist notes, Lyto here is older than he was in the books, but it makes for a strong image.

So I've actually achieved all but one of my writing goals already this week. The only one left is the thorny issue of Beta Readers.

I have posted ZombieMart in its second draft from on Amazon's WriteOn platform and am getting some valuable feedback there but it's not quite the same as a full read through.

The problem is I'm mostly interested in story/character feedback rather than copy editing (useful as that can be with all the typos I make) and what I'm offering in return for that is.... absolutely nothing.

Finding people willing to take that deal who also are a good match is... challenging.

Since this one's a short story I could probably skip a step, but I'd just end up with the same problem for Dragon Hoard

I mentioned earlier that I'm overcommitted because of the time I'm spending writing currently.

This is not such a bad problem to have, but it does mean I'm not able to do some things I would like to do. Specifically I'm not reading, and thus not commenting on, nearly as much fiction here in #SaturdayScenes, on WattPad or WriteOn as I would like to.

Pretty much my one post to #DailyFiction  is the sum total I can do currently, because reading just takes a lot of time, particularly if you have to read several stories to find one to recommend.

Your Daily Dose of Fiction: Ithaka Rising by +Lisa Cohen

It's time for some #DailyFiction  again and today I'm resharing this excerpt from +Lisa Cohen's sequel to Derelict, called Ithaka Rising.

A half-remembered melody drifted through Jem's mind. It was something Barre had written years ago. Years before the drugs and the arguments with their parents that had spilled over and poisoned the brothers' relationship. It was a song Barre had written just for him - a lullabye that had filled the emptiness and chased away the fear Jem had felt strapped in the small jump chamber on their parents' ship.

The sound faded as Jem woke to darkness.

"Barre?" His own voice sounded small and thin. He took a deep breath and the stale smell of the jump chamber brought him back to the present. This was Charon's ship. Jem tugged on the restraints, but they didn't retract. "Hey! Get me out of here!"

Jem squirmed. The old compression foam bottomed out and his spine pressed against the hard frame of the acceleration couch. He rotated his arm and groped for any kind of release mechanism. The cuff Charon had given him clanked against the metal straps.

Charon had drugged him. Jem didn't know whether to be furious or grateful. His head didn't ache and he didn't desperately need to vomit, so maybe the gratitude just edged out the anger. At least for now.   

"Hello?" Whatever Charon had given him had knocked him out hard, but now that he was conscious, his body was making its needs known. He had to pee. And he was hungry. "Look. I'm awake. If this ship is going to make any more jumps, you're going to have to sterilize the bay."

The ship had to have an AI to calculate the jumps. And most AIs were programmed with emergency overrides. Medical overrides. Jem smiled in the darkness. His parents made sure he knew the codes as well as the consequences of using them inappropriately. Releasing jump restraints mid-jump had messy and often lethal outcomes.

Ignoring the pressure in his bladder, Jem focused on the ship. There was no sound other than the humming of the air handlers. Since he didn't feel as if his body was being pulled inside out in the human equivalent of a mobius strip, Jem knew they weren't mid-jump. But they weren't under normal propulsion either. Even the quietest of interstitial drives made a ship vibrate. And a ship this old would definitely have a shimmy.

So they were either landed, docked, or adrift.

In any case, Jem wanted out. He channeled his best Dr. Leta Durbin. It was a brook-no-nonsense attitude coupled with an absolute certainty of being obeyed that made her brutally efficient in a crisis. "Emergency medical override alpha alpha alpha. Disengage jump restraints." This might not count in his mother's world as a crisis, but Jem wasn't above using any advantage he could.

The restraints clicked opened. Jem blinked his tearing eyes as light flooded the compartment. Wriggling out a little at a time, he was able to reach the grab bar, slide free the rest of the way, and land on his feet in the corridor.

"You're more resourceful than you look."

Jem jumped at the sound of Charon's voice right behind him. The man leaned against the only intact bulkhead panel, spinning the metal cuff on his wrist.

 Whatever Charon had injected him with was nearly out of Jem's system and the nausea had returned. It wasn't so bad yet that he had to hold onto the wall, but it would get there. He needed to find the head before that. "I get that a lot." Jem shrugged. "You should block all the primary overrides. Everyone forgets the medical ones."

"And where would that have left you?" The woman whose voice filled the narrow corridor wasn't much taller than Jem. She limped closer, favoring her left leg. As far as he knew, she hadn't been aboard on Gal 3. So unless they stopped to take on a passenger while Jem was in dreamland, they had landed. Or docked. And she came from whatever they had parked.

"Not too far from where I am now. Only still horizontal. Is there a head on this boat?"

Charon snapped to rigid attention as she stopped beside him. "Major Doc, sir!" he shouted, saluting.

"At ease, ferryman. I'll take it from here."

"You sure, Doc?" Charon asked, ignoring Jem.

"Aren't I always?"

Jem studied her short white hair and the deep creases that created short parallel lines that carved a path from between thin eyebrows up across her forehead. She wore a stained engineer's coverall. Its pockets were filled with delicate tools, but her hands were clean. Her blue-eyed gaze took him in and seemed to judge him by standards Jem couldn't hope to match. She reminded him of a future version of Ro.

As Charon squeezed past, the old soldier grabbed Jem's wrist just above the cuff. Jem winced, but gritted his teeth to avoid crying out. "Welcome to The Underworld," Charon said. "Don't do anything stupid or I'll ferry you out into interstitial space myself." He nodded to the old woman. "I'll be monitoring."

"Of course you will," she answered, smiling, before turning to Jem. "You need to use the head, then I think some food is in order, and after that, answers."

"Yes." The pressure in his bladder was becoming painful.

"Well, follow me." She would have stumbled if not for the intact grab rail along the one remaining sealed bulkhead.

Jem glanced down at her feet. The heel and sole of her left shoe was a good two centimeters thicker than the right and still it wasn't enough to erase the limp.

"Souvenir. A gift from the Commonwealth." She glanced at where Charon had disappeared. "One of many."  

So many questions filled his mind. The most pressing one was if he had made the right choice. No one knew where he was. Hell, he didn't know where he was. He swallowed down bitter saliva and lurched after her.

Book Review: Fated by Benedict Jacka - http://www.eoghann.com/book-review-fated-by-benedict-jacka

It's fair to say that Fated, the first book in Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus series had a lot in common with a certain Chicago based mage.  It's a similarity that Jacka even acknowledges with an in story reference.  I'm sure there are people who will dismiss the series as a cheap copy based just on a handful of familiar elements.

And that would be a shame because while it is hard not to make comparisons early on (raised by a dark mage... check!) Alex Verus is not Harry Dresden. Both his powers and his character are different. This is something that becomes increasingly obvious as the book progresses.

All right then. Today's writing goal was an easy one. I've written the Douglas Brodie scene that I'm going to share only to my mailing list subscribers.

It's just a short thing (700 or so words) and not plot critical, but it does introduce an organization (PMSA) and at least one character that will feature in a future story.

Now I just have to figure out what the best formats will be for doing the sharing.

Over on Medium.com, Matter has been doing some really good journalism about Mars One.

When Mars One originally announced their plans the internet reaction was fairly positive. Finally someone was going to get humans on Mars. That enthusiasm effectively overwhelmed the serious questions that were being raised about how exactly this would work.

At this point it's hard to see Mars One as much more than an attempt to scam money.

So I have this little habit of working up covers for the stories I plan even before I've finished writing them (or in some cases started).

Partly it's procrastination I'm sure, but it also helps me get into the right headspace for the story. Also, fun.

This is what I have so far for Vilde and the Sword of Ice which I have now also outlined into three parts, thus completing the first of my writing goals for the week.

The cover isn't going to set the world on fire, but this is just a short story (probably 3,000 - 5,000 words) and it does give the feel of the story I think.

Middle-Earth Artwork: Glaurung's Gaze - http://www.deviantart.com/art/Glaurung-s-Gaze-492777365

Since I completed my writing goal, it's time to share another geeky reward with my followers. This time up it's Glaurung's Gaze a rather excellent illustration of a scene from the Silmarillion by  ebe-kastein.

Glaurung was of course the first of the non-winged Dragons that Morgoth loosed on Beleriand.

And while he [Tứrin] was yet held by the eyes of Glaurung in torment of mind, and could not stir, at a sign from the Dragon the Orcs drove away the herded captives and they passed nigh to Tứrin and went over the bridge. And among them was Finduilas, and she held out her hands to Tứrin, and called him by name.

And it's done. All of my writing goals for the week achieved.

ZombieMart has now completed its second draft. Part 5 went from 1,400 words to 2,400 which is pretty extreme, but I did say when I posted it that I felt it was too fast in places. So I filled in some gaps.

Now I guess I have to find some people to do a beta read or something. Because I'm willing to bet that in that 8,800 word story there's about 1,000 typos!

Just finished watching Men in Black for the first time in several years. Still a fun movie and it even won over my son Jamie who generally hates anything he hasn't seen before.

Since I've seen it a few times I was watching it on a slightly different level. It's interesting to see many common elements of blockbuster story structure implemented effectively. The ones that stuck out to me most were the mirroring (with the reference to the stars at the beginning at the end of the movie) and of course Chekov's Gun with the reference to not pressing the red button early on which is nicely paid off near the end.

Fringe: The Complete Series 55% Off - http://amzn.to/1DIy8Xl

While it started off with a very monster of the week feel, Fringe developed into one of my favorite science fiction shows. Arguably the final season goes a bit too far out there but the core trio and their relationships made it work anyway.

Right now Amazon is offering 55% off the boxed set of all five seasons of Fringe on DVD (4552 minutes, 28 discs). That's a pretty solid deal.

Strange things are afoot at the Casino where Douglas Brodie, reluctant wizard, is currently working. Not only are people behaving oddly but the owner turns out to be a dragon. If that wasn't enough it seems that a werewolf, who just happens to also work at the casino, has gone missing...

Part 6: Food Fight

Depending on when you get to the casino the atmosphere can vary from one of excitement to a general sense of desperation, all covered by lots of loud noise. That evening it was different, there was tension in the air.

The smiles on the waitresses face looked a little more fixed than usual, the patrons seemed even more obsessed with their slot machines than ever. On my initial wander round for the evening I noticed several incidents of shoving and raised voices. These were people who really needed to let off steam, which is ironic considering where they were don't you think?

Wayne seemed more than usually nervous too. His hands wouldn't stay still, tugging at his ear or smoothing down what little hair he had left. Not that I could blame him, what with the Casino owner being on site. Even on a good day that could make you nervous, and this was clearly not a good day even to someone without a wizard's perceptions.

"Hey Wayne." I greeted him. "Have you seen Rick?"

"No." He practically spat the words at me. "He hasn't shown, and neither has Jim." Which explained the anger, being understaffed was never a good thing.

"I'd better get out there then." I said. Jim wasn't going to be in the mood to speculate about Rick or much of anything else right now.

"Keep an eye on things Doug." Jim said. I suppressed a wince and forced myself to nod. My name's Douglas, not Doug.

Back out on the floor, the tension in the air had an almost physical presence. The noise can get to you any day, but I had just got here and already I could feel a headache building. It felt unnaturally hot and the air seemed to close in around me, making my skin itch. I strongly suspected something mystical at play, but as short staffed as we were though I couldn't just go wandering off to investigate.

Instead I did what I was supposed to do, wandering the floor, greeting the guests and offering help where I could. Normally I could expect to receive some thanks, or maybe a smile, this evening I was lucky if I didn't get knocked out of the way.

I figured I'd go and check in on Lee Anne, see what she could tell me about the strange behavior. Sure enough, she was sitting in her usual spot, playing the slots.

"How's it going?" I greeted her, but she didn't even look up from her game. "So, what's the scoop." I tried again, reaching out to rest a hand on her shoulder.

Now strictly speaking we're really not supposed to lay our hands on the guests, unless they get physical themselves, but it was Lee Anne. I certainly wasn't expecting the response I got. She turned her to look at me, her expression one of irritation bordering on outright anger. With a hiss she batted my hand away and turned right back to the slot machine, completely dismissing me.

That's not exactly normal behavior for anyone, but for Lee Anne, it was unthinkable. If I'd needed more proof that someone or something was manipulating the casino guests, I had it. But who, or what and why?

I left Lee Anne to her machine and headed for the back office area. I needed somewhere quiet in order to investigate what was going on here. Magic requires concentration and that is not something you can achieve while standing on the floor of a casino with bells ringing and music playing and people talking. Actually when you put it like that, it's a miracle I can even walk and talk while out there.

As usual though my plans were thwarted by  a strange compulsion to keep my job. The radio squawked a Code Chartreuse. I have no idea who picked the color codes or why they thought chartreuse would be a good fit, but in short it means "Everybody hurry up and get here the guests are fighting!". So I went running for the food court!

The excitement was mostly over by the time I got there. There was still some shouting going on and a couple of people were being bodily removed from the scene, but mostly what was left to do was clean up.

I mean that literally because the gentleman in question had apparently been grabbing food off the plates of the other guests, knocking most of it to the floor in the process. The place was a mess and it was full of highly disgruntled guests. Wayne was wandering round frantically offering free food vouchers to everyone within eyeshot of the events.

I watched him for a moment, wondering how much worse his day could possibly get, when I caught sight of Sante Drago and his entourage. The whole group of them had emerged from whatever private room he was occupying and were observing the scene. That couldn't be good.

I took the opportunity to study Mr. Drago from a distance. I could sense the mystical power within him, concealed by that human form.  He was a formidable presence. Instinctively I tried to make myself smaller and less obtrusive. But the expression on his face disturbed me. If Drago had been a regular human being I would have sworn he was worried.

Could he sense what I was sensing in the air at his casino? And if so, what did it take to worry a dragon?

It was a good half hour or more before I was able to extract myself from the food court disaster and return to Lee Anne and the sight of her shocked me. She was still sitting in front of the slot machine, but must have left it at some point because next to her were piles of food and a giant sized drink.

She still had one hand on the slot machine handle, but the other was cramming an entire burger into her face, heedless of the dripping sauce going all down her front. As soon as her hand was free she reached for the soda and gulped on it, while still chewing.

Her body seemed strangely altered, bulging and misshapen so that her clothes didn't fit properly any more. As I got closer I detected a faint odor of corruption and rot about her. Paying no attention to me she shoved a handful of fries into her already full mouth,  most of them falling onto the seat and floor around her.

Before she could reach for yet more food, the machine lit up like a jukebox and tokens clattered out of the bottom. With a cry of glee she grabbed for them and shoveled them greedily into her large cup, her face contorted into a look of painful ecstasy.

Something had possessed Lee Anne.

Next: Part 7 - Gluttony

When he reached the room, he secured her chain to one end of the bed, and sat gingerly at the other end. The waxing moonlight flooded the bed, giving a silver sheen to her red and snowy fur.

"When you are a woman, I can remove the chain," he told the fox.

I'm toying with the idea of writing a short Douglas Brodie scene (it may not qualify as a story exactly) and making it available only for mailing list subscribers.

It wouldn't be plot critical and would be primarily humorous  but it might be a nice bonus for people who bothered to sign up.

Why do people make the text on their websites/blogs etc. so small?

Something like 80% of users have screen resolutions exceeding 1280 in width which means text looks tiny and that hard to read (insert joke about how old I am here)

Do you not want me to read your content? 

Yes, this applies to G+ too.

Yes I know I can manualyl adjust, but you're making me work and I'm lazy.

Book Review: Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds - http://www.eoghann.com/book-review-revelation-space-by-alastair-reynolds

GoodReads recommendation engine has been suggesting Alastair Reynold's Revelation Space to me for a couple of years now and it's not hard to see why, after all it's epic scaled science fiction written by a British author, and that is kind of my thing.

Book Review: Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds - http://www.eoghann.com/book-review-revelation-space-by-alastair-reynolds

GoodReads recommendation engine has been suggesting Alastair Reynold's Revelation Space to me for a couple of years now and it's not hard to see why, after all it's epic scaled science fiction written by a British author, and that is kind of my thing. Well it finally made it to the top of my to read pile and I'm glad it did. While it starts slow by the end it's gripping stuff.

So What's It All About?

Nine hundred thousand years ago, something annihilated the Amarantin civilization just as it was on the verge of discovering space flight. Now one scientist, Dan Sylveste, will stop at nothing to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself. With no other resources at his disposal, Sylveste forges a dangerous alliance with the cyborg crew of the starship Nostalgia for Infinity. But as he closes in on the secret, a killer closes in on him. Because the Amarantin were destroyed for a reason — and if that reason is uncovered, the universe—and reality itself — could be irrecoverably altered…

Did You Like It?

Yes I really enjoyed it once the scope narrowed down to the ship and its small crew. From about half way on the tension just kept ratcheting up.

Buy, Borrow or Skip?

This one gets a buy from me.

So I was planning on watching the first episode of Powers (since it's free even if you don't have a Playstation) but I'm only 5 minutes in and already it's painful to watch.

Your Daily Dose of Fiction: My Super Midlife Crisis by Steeven R. Orr - http://www.steevenorrelse.com/p/my-super-midlife-crisis.html

Today's #DailyFiction  was suggested by +R.J. Blain. Most guys buy a car when they hit their midlife crisis, Oliver Jordan gets superpowers!

My Super Midlife Crisis by Steeven R. Orr
Genre: Superhero

GARRISON CITY - 1991

THE OLD MAN CLUNG precariously to the side of the Kent Building. His fingers ached and had begun to go numb. Sharp bursts of pain stabbed at each knuckle as he struggled to find purchase among the brick and mortar. He looked down through the night to the street below and gazed solemnly at the traffic that passed beneath him. He sighed. He’d only made it five floors and had two more to go to get to the roof. He’d been at this for fifteen minutes, that’s three minutes per floor. It justwasn’t ... more »

He’d been at this for fifteen minutes, that’s three minutes per floor. It just wasn’t good enough.

Twenty years ago he could have climbed all seven stories in less than five minutes with nary an effort.

But now? Well, now his body didn’t quite work the way it used to.

Munchkin Adventure Time - http://amzn.to/1GvRZqh

There are a lot of versions of Munchkin out there these days, probably more than I could list, but this one does stand out rather. As the name suggests it's themed after the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time and it's very thoroughly themed too, right down to the custom die that comes with the set.

It follows the same basic rules as Munchkin of course, but with brand new cards and artwork.

Some interesting and balanced thoughts here on the subject of Grimdark.

I think that like most things that happen in publishing it's seemingly everywhere because it's popular, but that very popularity leads to an inevitable backlash.

Personally I am ready for more aspirational fantasy, while still appreciating the skill of some of the "Grimdark" proponents.

The LEGO Iron Giant - http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/407406

Okay even if you're not a LEGO fan this one ought to impress you.

Benjamin Kobold has built this incredible scale model of the Iron Giant and Hogarth out of LEGO. It stands 4'7" in height and weighs 60 lbs. He doesn't say how many pieces of LEGO were used, but I'm going with a lot.

Okay then, Dragon Hoard Part 7 is finished and I'm titling it Gluttony.

And since I've completed the third of my writing goals for the week (in three days no less) it's time I reward you all with something cool and geeky.

Let's see what I can find!

Your Daily Dose of Fiction: The Three Brother Cities by Deborah Walker - http://www.sockdolager.net/spring-2015/three-brother-cities

Another short story courtesy of Sockdolager Magazine. What does a sentient city do when no one wants to live in it?

The Three Brother Cities by Deborah Walker
Genre: Science Fiction

The creators, when they finally arrived, proved to be a disappointment.

“I’m not sure that I understand,” said Kernish, the eldest of the three brother cities. “Have you evolved beyond the need of habitation?”

Seven creators had decanted from the ship. They stood in Kernish’s reception hall; Kernish anthems swirled around them.

Logitech Harmony 650 Universal Remote 35% Off - http://amzn.to/18ISQsr

So I'm looking at replacing my current Harmony 550 remote (which, to be fair, is most of a decade old) and right now the best replacement looks to be.... the Logitech Harmony 650.

Essentially it's Logitech's new baseline model. This time out though it can control up to 8 devices and has a color screen (mine is just black and white).

I've yet to find anything (remotely affordable) that matches the activity based switching of the Harmony line.
