    No it's a known fact that any writer worth her salt is self-critical to an absolute fault. That's why they generally need some input from trusted (but honest) people in order to improve and keep reaching for the Big Time (e.g., getting a small token payment from a 'zine, or making a few cents through self-publishing. Alas, I am not yet at either of those places.)

    Where are you? I uploaded an inspirational picture to my album: http://www.revleft.com/vb/album.php?...ictureid=11748 (he actually said the quote in caption in some video interview, and I thought, "Well that's obvious." But it made me feel not so bad about writing irregularity.)

    That happens to me, too. Frequent mood-swings and distractions. Still, I should write more than I do considering I don't have school or any prole job.

    Did the writing thing not go well? It often doesn't for me (or I wouldn't have made that thread whining). I posted some embarrassing excerpts of a new project (different thread in the group) but perhaps you already saw those. It currently stands at 1,434 words, there having been slow progress. I keep thinking I should just give up but then realise I don't really have anything else, which holds me back from the edge of the precipice.

    It was some lolertarian...ish thing which proposed fixing capitalism by fully automating labor, reducing government down to next to nothing, instead using the tax money to give everyone free money, getting rid of banks, replacing fait/gold/etc money with digital money (in other words, bitcoin before bitcoin ever became a thing.) while LITERALLY SAYING that its not backed by anything and can just be poofed out of the air, making business more transparent by making all information on them readily available (though who's enforcing that they dont' say), all followed up by some bullshit pyramid scheme promising you money if you refered people but had some fine print bullshit tacked onto it.
    I made a rebuttal way back in the day on it (back when I was still a newb to marxism. Well, more of one than I am now. lol).

    You know, I think Demand The Good Life has bit the dust, actually.

    I'd say that's a good thing, but I'm starting to see more people start to peddle that same bullshit line as they did though.

So I wanted to take up miniature-based wargaming as a hobby again, but what with having next to no disposable income, what was I to do?

I don't exactly remember where I got the idea from, but I was recently struck with the notion of using those little plastic toy soldiers, you know the ones I mean, the guys that come in tubs or bags of 100-200 individuals.

So I today I went down to the high street and bought two different tubs of cut-price commandos, as well two plastic...

INTRODUCTION

The state of the art in agriculture in the 22nd century is bound up in the hurricane of innovation that characterised late 21st-century technological and industrial development, which depending on who you ask is variously known as the Industrial Revolution 2.0, the First Singularity, the End of the Old World, the Great Market Shrink or the Big Mistake. Rapidly increasing...

The Core Worlds

Since the 22nd century, Terran civilisation has spread out from Earth in the Solar system to inhabit worlds around other stars, in some cases transforming them into places more hospitable to humanoid life. The motivations for doing so have varied - the propaganda value of making the first successful attempt, a realisation that keeping all one's eggs in one basket is a bad move in an indifferent universe, the opening up of new markets and products for dwindling capitalist...

The natives of Ghellhonus

"Dear citizens of the world and the wider solar system,

I would like to address you on the magnificent and amazing discovery in the Alpha Centauri A system. Ever since our ancestors first looked up to the skies and gazed upon the cosmos, we have always wondered what lay beyond our own world. The discovery of extraterrestrial life on the planet of Ghellhonus is a significant discovery and it constitutes the most important scientific milestone

Introduction

What is a mech? For the purposes of these notes I'm defining "mech" as an armoured fighting vehicle that has robotic legs for locomotion. The image below can be considered a typical mech:



As you may have gathered, my conception of mechs in Nova Mundi isn't like those Japanese super robot shows where the vehicles concerned are a brazillion feet tall, run around at the speed of light and...
