      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

  1. The I-Can't-Remember-Which-Thread Thread

    We had a bad case of glaciers. What's your excuse?
  2. The I-Can't-Remember-Which-Thread Thread

    And Marijuana, don't forget the marijuana. That is silly, everyone knows the mountains are in the northern part, like Mount Prospect. (For those of you who don't live here, "Mount" Prospect is just barely out of the swamp.)
  3. The I-Can't-Remember-Which-Thread Thread

    Exacerbated by the constant need to "feed the beast." The 24-hour news cycle creates a demand for something, anything to write or broadcast that never ends, while allowing less and less time for stories to properly gel. Also (this may be a function of my own age), it seems to me that today's journalists know less about the wide world than they used to. The jokes about east and west coast reporters being ignorant of "Flyover Country" (that portion of the United States the plane flies over between New York or DC and LA) have some real truth behind them.
  4. The Weather.

    "Bomb" seems, sadly, topical. My digital thermometer is reading "0oF" (more or less), which is how I feel about heading over to the gym right now.

    Until Monday, at least, I'm going to pretend that the BOOM is Susan's Stun Hammer hitting Scarfy before he can pull the trigger. .50 caliber. Overkill much?

    Yeah, me too, the problem is being certain. Jamie (the hero of the Outlander books, has good reasons for his extra-legal killings, and while I'm listening to the books (we've been doing a lot of long-distance driving, lately) it doesn't bother me. It's only afterwards, when I'm thinking about it, that the mass of corpses (to be fair, most of them were trying to commit murder or worse just before they assumed room temp.) seems oppressive.

    Point , but we're the good guys.
  8. Story, Friday December 8, 2017

    Mrs. Dorsai and I have been listening to the Outlander series of books as read by Davina Porter. Right now, a very young character is bragging about how his granda has killed two dozen redcoats., pretty that won't be the final accounting. Nevertheless, his granda is a good guy, and one of the major characters in the series. Susan's body count is two, with more likely coming. It's funny what we'll accept in fiction.

    And then there were five. 16.7% down on the Aberration side, for those of you keeping stats.
  10. Story Wednesday December 6, 2017

    Hi Folks, long time no see. Been too busy to keep up with either the forum or the comic for quite a while. Just got caught up with the comic, haven't had time for the forums. Forgive me if I've been anticipated by others. It looks like there are going to be more players on the board than either Sirleck or Magus anticipates--Sirleck's got six Aberrations coming, but Susan the Vampire Hunter can't be part of his calculations. Where is Voltaire? Will Terra make a belated reappearance? If she's an AU Tedd, she's probably been looking for Magus for the last three years. And there are tantalizing hints that Sirleck might not be entirely in control of Ellen. It seems I'm back just in time. Pass the popcorn.
  11. What Are You Ingesting?

    Just polished off an elk burger. The restaurant in the parking lot of this con hotel has some interesting menu choices. Shame I've sworn off bourbon for the time being.
  12. What Are You Watching?

    Old episodes of What's My Line? a 1950s-early sixties game show. Example here. I find this glimpse into the era when I was born soothing and charming, if slightly alien. The world has changed in so many ways. Do Mrs. Dorsai and I know how to party on a Saturday night or what?
  13. What are you reading right now?

    Blogs, way too many blogs. Here's the only one worth sharing. Pretty short, very funny.
  14. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    That fact gives me some small hope that the Republican-controlled Congress won't simply roll over for him. I also hope that he fulfills his campaign promise and appoints a new Justice as much like Scalia as possible--those "checks and balances" are about to get a serious workout, and a principled originalist might be just what we need to salvage the Bill of Rights. It would also be nice if the new Justice had enough respect for stare decicis to uphold Obergefell v. Hodges. And I want a pony.
  15. The Grammar Thread

    Back some time in the Jurassic, I wrote a few Harry Potter fanfics. Most of the comments I got were from people who could communicate in written English. Some were not. The latter category often provided interesting puzzles. I never did figure out a few of them.
