I will share, for your pleasure and amusement, a blog that I recently found providing a “play-by-play” of a theoretical World War 3, the classic fiction and wargaming topic.
This is Third World War 1987. By my incredibly low standards (read: I’ve seen so many downright awful World War III stories on the internet that anything exceeding them is at least good in perspective) it’s good, and certainly readable. Not the best, but far, far, from the worst either.
I posted on Baloogan Campaign well before I started my own blog, and still regularly post there.
Yesterday I made a new post there. The Broken Staff-The (In)Effectiveness of Militia,
I have never posted two blog posts in one day in the years I’ve been blogging. It’s become a sort of weird tradition. Part of it is that I like to take my time and get more involved with writing and/or thinking of posts, but the habit of “don’t post more than once a day” has become a kind of informal rule.
Well, now I’ve broken that rule. Hope this helps me blog better, and not just more.
In lieu of a proper Command Fiction, I will link to my latest post on Baloogan Campaign talking about one of my “worst” scenarios-the infamous Myanmar Defense.
And of course, I leave the reader to ponder what “WE HAVE OVERFLOWN MYANMAR AS A SIGNAL” actually means.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all readers.
I was suffering from writer’s block, looked at the stats, and realized that the next post I’d make would be the 100th I’d made this year. So, I’m impressed by how much writing I’ve done so far.
100 posts in a year. Incredible.
I’ve now been blogging for over a year now. Kind of hard to believe that I’ve made so many posts, but I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time.
This is the 100th post I’ve made since starting this blog. It’s been in many ways an incredible experience for me.
I hope the readers have had as much fun reading the 100 posts as I’ve had writing them.
I’ve wanted to start a Patreon for some time now. Now I’ve finally pushed the button and set up the Patreon.
The Patreon can be seen here.
I now have a new gaming PC. It’s been a long time coming, and it’s been a mixed blessing.
See, I’ve had nothing but econo-computers (by the standards of the Moore’s Law cycle at the time) for literally my entire life. Getting a luxury computer is new to me, and I have to admit that going from undemanding plodders to a finicky high-performance beast is something that, in hindsight, got me in deeper than I expected.
But, from what has worked, the SSD-fueled tower is displaying great performance. It’s helping me learn about how to handle computers, and I still do not regret the purchase at all. (The musicians in my family have had issues with new electronic instruments that are very similar).
