Re: Dear You 2.0

Also, would it be possible to make it so Pwebbers can post over there using their forum accounts? I don't want to use Facebook or any of the other random options and it seems a bit silly to make us post as "guests" on our sister site. My confidence that I'm able to hack in that support would have b...

I love that I have a hair appointment tomorrow morning. I love getting my hair cut!
I loathe getting my haircut. I've come out the other side of a hair appointment with a cut I like all of twice.

Mass Effect 3 SPOILERS ahead. All I got out of the ending of Mass Effect 3 is that the catalyst is very, very stupid. Millions of years spent 'saving' organic life, and it couldn't come up with a more elegant solution than, Step 1) Use mind control and robot zombies to terrify and distract organic l...

I believe most of the hystia comes from sites like Lifehacker fearmongering to drive new readership, and naive users who just didn't understand that Google uses all that data they give it to tailor their ads.

Re: Timeline

It's interesting to look at the different speeds at which the characters move through time. Ender and Valentine's flight from Eros to Shakespeare lasts 41 years objectively, two years subjectively. So, they're traveling at an average rate of 20.5 objective years/subjective year. Ender | Eros - Shake...

Re: Timeline

Well, the SftD timeline puts the formation of Starways Congress in 3381 CE. I'm choosing to interpret "400 some odd years" as a generous, "earlier than 2640 CE" as the latest Investment Counciler could have taken place. Which gives us at least a 741 year gap, likely larger. So, either you have Ender...

Re: Timeline

Derp. Jane says Ender is Objectively 3081 years old when he's called to Lusitania. Adding the years since Starways Congress--1948--to the years since Ender's victory until Starways Congress--1180--plus Ender's age when he was victorious--11--puts him at 3139 years old.

I've got the Formic homeworld being destroyed in 2201 CE based on Bean being seven years old at the time. I've based the dates for events SftD on that date + 1180 years to the original founding date of Starways Congress + years since that date. I think those dates should continue to use this math to...
