A request from #2 son Answered

#2 son has just seen =SMART='s Paper Robot, and, of course, he's making one.

Now, though, he wants to see another version.

He wants somebody to make a knitting pattern for Robot, then he could persuade Kitewife to make him one.

(And, personally, if anybody has a copy of the infamous Adipose pattern?)

My mom bought the huge box from Cosco, and I am actually drinking the Fruit Punch one, even when I commented Kiteman. I can get a starberry kiwi or whatever, but nahhhhh.

You don't have to worry if you drink from a cup: it is those that do not use a cup that we have to worry about ;-)

If he made his tea in a clean cup, there will be no backwash in it, as per the conversation further up :-) Someone that drinks from a pot or jug, without a cup, is the worry.

I've been thinking for a while how I could make a knitted instructables robot. I think I have it mostly figured out but I'd have to actually knit it and that would take a while...

I LOVE DOCTOR WHO... However, Tom Baker was the only REAL doctor. He made the series what it is today.

btw: the end of "Forest of the Dead" was as bad as the end of "Family of Blood", I'm annoyed with the Stephen Moffat episodes... they show a lot of promise, but he kills the endings (except "Blink" - awesome). I am worried about the 2010 series...however, "The Doctor's Daughter" could be an awesome precedent for future story arcs.

I think he's a better than the other... Russel Davies?

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

gschoppe (author)ll.132008-06-20

I don't think Davies is very good, but he's gotten good people to help him out. when he works on his own (love and monsters... etc) he's terrible. However, I just don't like this "narrated legend" manner of ending episodes. The doctor needs to remain accessible and sympathetic, despite his amazing record. I also was quite put off by the "everybody lives" ending, when people die, they need to really die. Otherwise, the Doctor isn't playing for serious stakes, and it belittles his accomplishments.

Ah, but they are "expendable" people, people who come, die, in one episode. =)

If you can find a UK proxy you should be able to watch the latest episodes on BBC iPlayer. ;-)

Question: If Donna could be brought back from the hard drive, why can't River Song, Et al, be brought back too?? Why do they have to live on the hard drive for all eternity? I don't get it.

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

gschoppe (author)Lithium Rain2008-06-29

Donna, et al, was brought in through a transmat (teleport). The buffer stored her whole body, on an atomic level. On the reconstitution side of things, the machine only had to complete the teleport and map new neural connections corresponding to her memories. River, et al, was only stored at an eidetic level, so any body she had in the simulation was a simulation that only had to pass visual inspection and allow for physical interaction... basically, she wass only a 3D wireframe with a high poly-count and a good texture layed over it... hence, no resurrection possible. yay for amazing amounts of nerdy deduction!

Oh, wait...just saw forest of the dead. Never mind. I personally like how people come back-I'm sick of people dying. Even on tv, it's slightly traumatic. I enjoy a show that resurrects people for a change. Just my two cents worth.
