Re: Nerferwerfer 2020-01-27

I'd swear that the gryphon on the wall behind them is either shaking its fists, or giving someone the finger, but I can't tell for certain whom is being so blessed. Possibly the Gods themselves.

"Carved Stone Esty Store" -- First good giggle I've had in a while!

Now this is a good hobby for young Pickle to learn both patience and precision while making tiny carved statuary instead of carving canyons in plutonic bedrock or something. Good for her!

Re: In That Department 2020-01-13

Miriam is right to be concerned, of course. An exploding blouse could end up firing one or more buttons around the school at high velocity, possibly causing an "active shooter" incident. The last thing Gryphon needs is an accidental confrontation between a faculty quick-response team (orc-and-mage)...

Let me go the long way around the pole on this one... The shorthand claim for Evolution is "Survival of the Fittest" (coined by 1800s economist Herbert Spencer , not Darwin), or more simply "Natural Selection." The reality of it is having nothing to do with "fitness" it's about Reproduction of the S...

Re: More stuff to not work with...

All righty then, try this one for size. I forget the Sci Fi story name, but basically the good guys (Earthlings) were launching orbital bombs at a planet in the 300 megaton range to cripple the economy. Devastating and enough to bury the factories, mines, etc, under a few hundred meters of dust and ...

Yep yep.

I did run them through Word's spell checker... it doesn't like Euryale's accent.
I just had a night(day)mare that her sister Stheno had a Zsa Zsa Gabor accent, dahlink.

Re: Random Web Browser TAB Sample...

I tend to stop around 6-8 tabs just to focus on reading whatever I had open for reasons, clean up, then carry on with the main project/reading tab. On the other hand, I have 16 Themes in Win10 rotating rough many hundreds (Cartoons) to thousands (Nature) of pictures including a very broad art morgue...

Now what the %&$* is a Yokai? In Japanese tradition, things and places and plants and whatnot would have kami spirits associated with them. Basically, sometimes the kami got a bit weird and manifested as yokai, which could take all sorts of different forms and personalities. Ruri is a tsukumogami y...

She will be missed. Nothing can ruin SciFi or any other story with depth like poor continuity and sloppy world building.

Re: Older Pictures Encore - help? please?

Do you need mine back up? Not difficult to do.

P.S. - External Terabyte hard drives for rolling backups are really cheap now! Everything I want to keep is in a /Data/ directory that I can drag and drop onto the HD with a month/year label. Easy Peasy.
