Editorial – Nov 2021:   Resources Are Sources.

Hello everyone When I was a youngster, I came across a visual list showing what coal could be used for and, oddly, burning it as a fuel was actually pretty low on the list so I doubt if burning it made as much money. I suspect this is also true today. Do a google search […]

Governing Creative Time  :  an article on controlling deadlines by: GF Willmetts

The professional attitude towards the arts is making money as it is a job and you can’t live on nothing, although artists like Van Gogh undoubtedly did compared to the value of his work after his death. Knowing your material’s value also determines how much you charge for your time. Alas, it also makes it […]

Editorial – Nov 2021: Being an organised geek.

Hello everyone Being an organised geek and commenting in the past that we have different grades of geek, it does raise an interesting question whether it is possible to train a geek or at least improve your status if you think you have something lacking? I mean, we do mostly show common attributes of bloody-mindedness, […]

Editorial – Oct 2021:   Are upgrades important?

Hello everyone If you think coming up with editorials looks easy coming from me, I’ve been through at least four good ideas this month, mostly with a desire not to be funny as this world slowly winds up again into another covid disaster even before we get another variant. However, next to the covid-virus, the […]

Editorial – Aug 2021:  Is ‘average’ to wide or too narrow a definition?

Hello everyone What is ‘identity’ in the modern world? Having had a problem of proof of identity for something I didn’t really regard as pointy, wax carving tools, bought for shaping model filler, compared to other things I’ve bought with the long river website where I have neither a driving licence – don’t drive, not […]

Editorial – July 2021: Everyone likes a mystery.

Everyone likes a mystery. Seeing solution is even more satisfying. Hello everyone When I was young and I suspect the same was true for many of you, too, you read books about the Loch Ness’ creature, yeti and UFOs. There was a hope to join the dots and one day see them resolved with real […]

Who’s the daddy?

So, another Father’s Day dawns. My own dad passed away a couple of years ago now, so when now posed with the metaphysical question, ‘Who’s the Daddy?’, you can imagine my surprise to find out the answer is, ‘I am!’ I was hoping for a model railway layout for Father’s Day. But I seem to […]

Editorial – June 2021: Boredom And Indifference.

Hello everyone I should stay from the start that as geeks we don’t necessarily suffer from boredom. Well, not for long. If we’re idle, then we find something to do, even staring into space, our minds are imagining something. Depending on what you read, some level of boredom is either good for you or might […]

Editorial – Mar 2021:  Read The Word.

Hello everyone, With all this apparent time to think in even deeper isolation, I’ve been contemplating about the state of our Science Fiction genre again. For many years now, we have been coasting along, with more emphasis on film and TV than the written word. If you favour one or the other, try the one […]

Buck Rogers is back (news).

Nobody go bidi-bidi-bidi, but the Buck Rogers franchise is back for another go at TV and movies thanks to the studio Legendary who seems to have picked up the rights to continue the adventures of the old-school comics/pulp serials and of course the Armageddon 2419 A.D book by Philip Francis Nowlan upon which it all […]
