Throne of Jade (Temeraire Book 2) by Naomi Novik.

The Chinese are pissed that the Brits ended up with the dragon they sent to Napoleon.  Off to China to attempt to resolve things.

Honestly, I can't afford to start over at entry level salary at this point, and I still need to learn Java for my current job.  I got a late start with my first big boy job in a real city at 31, and the debt load that came from eight years of not working with my degree will haunt me until I die under a mountain of debt.  smile

The wife is off today, so we will be spending time together.  She went from the year end holidays right into having to prep for store inventory.

Saturday will be spent boardgaming, then going to the hockey game.

Sunday will likely be spent oot and aboot with the wife, either looking at houses, archery, or some other stuff.

I knew all the parts, but wanted to confirm and make sure I had it straight.  I still want to be an aerospace engineer when I grow up, but seeing as I'm 38, the time for that may have passed.  smile

biggrin I was working on it as the first reply.  Then I got "Warning - a new reply has been added...", etc.  I had to go gather and review sources.

Planes are stress tested well beyond the specs that are recommended or set as max operating specs.  Just look at the wing deflection test.

With a tail wind, the plane may be moving faster than the standard speed of sound, but the air that they're moving through, in a relative manner, is slower than the point at which a sonic boom shockwave will form.  You have the speed of sound that changes based on altitude and atmospheric pressure.  You also have measurements of indicated air speed versus true air speed.  

There's a reason that aerospace engineering is usually a masters-level program.

If you believe Tom Chick's statement that no game worth playing is set on a globe map, absolutely nothing.

Especially when you can have Dennis Thurman lately of the Jets.   24th in points against, 27th in yards against, 14th in passing defense, 6th in rushing defense...
91  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [NFL 2014] [Playoffs] Divisional Round on: January 13, 2015, 04:49:37 PM
Why the hell would you want a D coordinator that placed 4th in points against, 3rd in yards against, 3rd in passing defense, 11th in run defense?  The mind boggles.
92  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Relationship Help on: January 13, 2015, 03:49:05 PM
Yeah, given that the religious differences are as bad as they are, plus the breach of your privacy in snooping into your private communications, compounded with talking to others about something that resulted in a foreseeable outcome of shunning, there's not much there to try to rebuild on, I fear.

Obviously, the kid is going to be a major sticking point.  You're going to be tied to her forever through that connection.  But if you decided to punch out, fight for shared custody and make sure you keep the lawyers on a short leash for any breaches of custody arrangements.  You can serve as a counterpoint for your kid to a certain extent, and make sure that there's more than one point of view being demonstrated.

She's made a decision, if even by default, that her religion and that community are worth more to her than you are.  You have to put you and your kid in the first two slots, in whatever order.  While she may put the child first, there's going to be a lot of conflict in what that means to each of you.

Nada.  I did add War, the Game to my wishlist for when it's $2.50 in a couple years.

His Majesty's Dragon: A Novel of Temeraire

It's 1804, Napoleon is trying to invade England, and Dragons are real, intelligent enough to speak, and are used as sky ships manned with riflemen and flagmen.

A light, entertaining read, it's the first of at least nine books in the series. The second one's on e-book from the library, so I guess I'm in for at least one more.

Oh, and I got a new 24" tv for my office, and moved the XBox 360 in there.  I'm spending the occasional evening trying to get called up again from the Manchester Monarchs to the big show in LA.

Strider is on my wishlist, but I'm content to let the price come down further.

Tonight's a trip to the bar.  I've been playing ARMA: Cold War Assault (formerly Operation Flashpoint) in an attempt to start working on my backlog.  It sure ain't no Call of Duty.

It's been a while since it's been on sale at Steam, but last time I could find, it was $2.49 on a flash sale.

I also see the potential to make very smart "green" appliances that could regulate their power consumption based on certain conditions. Maybe your washer can sense the load and use the precise amount of water and power to use to wash it, then communicate that information to the dryer.

My newish washer already does this.  And my oldish dryer already has an auto-dry setting that monitors the humidity.  Although, this doesn't work well for things like blankets and synthetics.

It's six months until release.  I'm sure we'll be getting more whiz-bang when the release date gets closer.

It's the new year!

After paying the bills, I'll be perusing my 400+ game collection and attempting to find something that's story-driven and short so I can feel like I've accomplished something.  Playing a 4X, a sports game, or some F2P game just isn't going to cut it this weekend.

Cobra II: The Inside Story of the Invasion and Occupation of Iraq

Published in 2006, this gives a very good (imo) look at the prewar planning and the military operations up through the occupation of Baghdad.  It certainly digs deep and shows the failings in planning and inability to listen to skilled military minds regarding combat and postwar administration needs.

The "12-hour" sales are actually good for 24.  It's just that we get a new set every 12.

The national flag space needs more red, white and blue flags.
114  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What Color Suits these Arctic Countries: USA, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Russia? on: December 22, 2014, 04:40:43 PM
Yeah, it's an issue with everyone claiming red, white and even blue.  Heck, the Greenland flag is red and white. 
115  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What Color Suits these Arctic Countries: USA, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Russia? on: December 22, 2014, 04:22:43 PM
Make sure you include Polar bear attacks.

Since they're a kingdom, Gold could stand for Norway.

That's quite the optimism you have, seeing as Philly is either going to tie or lead in about two minutes.
