    SEP: 4-year postmortem.

    Hi folks. It's been four years since some amazing things happened in my life. Four years since characters such as Brian Adkinson, Greg Williams, Jamie Cunningham, Svetlana Zaytseva (and even that marshmallow Anthony Downs who essentially Garned his way to the moon and back on SEP-010). Four...

    Getting my feet wet . . . again.

    Today was a good day -- after years of wrangling back and forth I finally found the wherewithal and time to go ahead and take my first .7 hrs of flight instruction. First impressions: :woohoo: Once I stopped convincing myself (and trying to prove to myself) I knew what I was doing, I was able...

    SEP: Interlude Pt. 4

    And once more without further ado: SEP: Interlude Pt. 4 League City, Texas. Monday, 25 July 2022. The sharp report of a knock at her apartment door woke Jamie Cunningham up. She rolled over, opening her eyes briefly . . . long enough to check the time. "Eleven fifteen," She said sourly to...

    A rant.

    Recently, I did something unusual. During a routine shopping trip, I came away with a new PC game. It's been years since I delved into the PC gaming market, and I felt it was time to do something for myself for a change. That was the high point. Installation process was as defined: * Click...

    Question WLAN issues and checklist.

    Hi guys, I should already know this. I really should. I went to school for exactly this sort of felgercarb. The problem is (and there's no guarantee this laundry list is set up in any particular logical order): * Canon MG2500 is setup with a static IP on the wifi network. Is talking...

    News 'Finding Pericynthion' launched: THANK YOU! :)

'Finding Pericynthion' -- Formally fleshed out, prettied up, and part of...

    SEP-010, Chapter 20.

    An edit . . . because I wasn't ultimately happy with what I posted earlier. This should be an improvement even with my own standards of writing! :P I give you once again: SEP-010, Chapter 20. Constitution, Flight Deck. Sienna Morrison made an odd noise. Both Jamie Cunningham and Greg...
