As usual, I suck at blogging. I keep not finding time to do it. I dunno, I just don't do it. And I really should. I tried to encourage it last time I updated this one, and you can see how well that worked!

Anyway, my announced topic was space travel. And it's starting to become a big thing once more, now that so much is starting to come together, and so many new discoveries popping up.

Our big mistake came in the early 70s, when we threw away all of the Apollo know-how, and retreated. Even Skylab was one last gasp to get rid of some of the left-overs from the Apollo series. All Skylab really was was a left-over third stage, that they converted.

We had a space station - true, it was a crude one - but we had one. We could have added on to it. We could have started projects of actually growing algae in space, and other recycling projects to learn what worked, and what didn't. Instead, we flew to it three times after it was launched. The first manned mission (the launch mission was unmanned) was mostly spent repairing things that went wrong during launch, which to my way of thinking was a perfectly wonderful job, since it showed that even if things went wrong, we could repair them in orbit!

Instead, we quickly dropped the Skylab missions, and went forward to the Space Shuttle concept. And if any project ever developed a nasty case of feature creep, it was the Space Shuttle. It quickly became a case of things being added - first it was supposed to be strictly an experimental airframe for testing, then it was supposed to ferry satellites to orbit, and then the idea of repairing satellites in orbit came, then ferrying parts and supplies for a space station got added.

This ignored that there were really two different modes of flight needed. Cargo flights could go up with much lower reliability requirements, and with higher thrust profiles that humans can't really withstand. Human flights need lower g-forces, but at the same time, you want them blowing up much less often.

And really, we did get a fairly modular system. We have the Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs), which are fairly easily recovered and reused. We have the External Tanks (ETs), which for some odd reason we decided to throw away, instead of boosting into orbit and storing - something that didn't actually need any extra fuel. And with the current costs of launching material to orbit, those tanks would have been valuable sources of raw materials to be put to use as shielding for a space station, or even storage space. Left over hydrogen and oxygen could have been recovered, and used for breathing, or for burning in fuel cells to provide power and drinking water.

But even without the Space Shuttle, we could have done so much in space just using the Apollo systems. Costs would have come down with the ordering of more vehicles - anyone in manufacturing can tell you that on a per-item basis, it's generally cheaper to make a hundred of an item, than a one-off. There were three fully functional Skylab modules built - one which was launched, and two that are now at space museums in Washington DC and Johnson Space Center in Houston. If the second had just been launched, using the lessons from the first one's launch, there'd have been a nice-sized base to use to build onto.

Still, we have hope today, in the growing private sector development of space travel. We have Dick Ruttan, Scaled Composites, Richard Branson, and Virgin Galactic developing the infrastructure to move people up and down to orbit. We have Robert Bigalow of Bigalow Aerospace developing space habitation modules, using a program of requiring second and third sources for all parts and materials being used. We have SpaceX building the Falcon series of reuseable cargo lifters, aiming for a per-pound launch price less than a tenth of current prices. All of this is a good start.

But eventually, we need more. Every remaining Space Shuttle launch should be loaded as heavily as consistent with its mission, parking extra supplies - even if it's just large rocks that can be slowly shifted to match orbits with the Space Station for making a bow shield against orbiting debris. I'm sure more useful things could be easily found to fill the cargo bay with.

The Space Station also needs a "janitor". Admitted, this would have to be a janitor with degrees in mechanical engineering, and a thorough understanding of the systems of the Space Station, but he would free up the scientists from having to take care of things around the station they're trained in from an emergency care point of view. He could also prepare meals for them. In general, with one janitor, the station could then handle having 6-8 other crew members with ease.

We also need a station around the Moon, probably attached to a space elevator-type construction, which due to the Moon's lower gravity, would be much shorter, and much easier to build - probably not even requiring particularly exotic materials, as the Earth Space Elevator would require. Then it might be convenient to have a Station that orbited in a figure-8 fashion between the Earth and the Moon, to act as a ferry, with ships carrying crews to Earth orbit, a quick hop to the ferry as it flies by, dropping off the Moon crew coming back from their tour.

That's another thing those external tanks might come in useful for - providing a framework for building lunar settlements. Drop an ET on the lunar surface, cover with dirt, and start inflating an airtight inner liner, and you have somewhere to live! Of course, we don't really know what we'd be doing there on the Moon. It's really senseless to try to guess. We've barely been there. But if there's one thing history tends to show, it's that we always seem to find something to do when we get anywhere new.

Oh, well. We'll get there, sooner or later. There's too many people like me who will, once we get there, find something to do! Me, I can see trying beds of plants to find which ones best grow in the lunar soil, and exchange oxygen most efficiently. I'd also be working on ways to store light from the day phase on the Moon to light my plots during the night phase (though, if the lunar colony is planted near the poles, might not really need to! Just arrange light-pipes to gather from whichever way is lit!)

And I think that's enough rambling for now. Wonder when I'll come up with more. Still, space travel is something I feel pretty strongly about. It seems a crying shame to me to look up at the full moon rising, and to know that we've been there, and just gave it up.

Looking at the way this is going, I think I'm really going to have to think about the organization of this page!

2005-11-22 22:40

Well, my first blog entry. Been thinking about doing it for several days, but now I'm finally getting around to it. Nothing too important at this point, really - just a curious thought that runs through my mind.

I've got this picture, a really nice one, that I printed off from some website somewhere - I don't really remember where. It's a really nice picture, of a fairy sitting with one knee drawn up to her chest. She's wearing grey sweats, and a long-sleeved top.

The other day, I was looking at it, and something odd struck me. How does she get that top on? The way the picture is drawn, neither of the normal ways of putting on apparel - either through the top, or the bottom, would work, because the wings would get in the way. The only thing I can really figure is a cut-out in the back, that she could step into, then put her head through. It's not obvious in this picture, though, perhaps there's some elastic to pull the hole to a minimal size - just enough for the wings to get through.

Still, I think it'd be interesting to see a fairy from the back, a clothed one. I've seen a fair number of naked ones - though the wing attachment points always seem to get kind of glossed over. Interesting, though. I would love to have the talent to draw these kinds of pictures. I really would. There's so many things I imagine in my head, that I can't get my hands to cooperate in putting on paper.

Anyway, I think that's enough for now. Maybe tomorrow or whenever, I'll rant about the space program.

Free E-Books

Most free E-Books online are either samples given out by publishers, often hidden behind shopping carts where you end up still having to give a credit-card number to "check out", or they're nothing much more than the Project Gutenburg collection of public domain material, converted into whatever format they're pushing.

But there are actual, full novels and books, easily downloaded, that are freely available. A lot of them are works relating to computer geek culture, and the changes it is impressing on the more general populace, but over and above even that are actual books, science fiction and fantasy are the most popular, that have been published in traditional paperback, even hard-back, that are also published on the web, with full legal rights to download. One of the big names that tried this, and did it with much fanfare, was Stephen King, but I don't believe his project went over that well. Publishers have also been doing this - Baen being probably the most prolific. Another approach is one taken by Lawrence Watt-Evans, where he posts chapters at a time, and as long as enough people send in donations (he's got a specific amount, any extra counts towards the next period, and it's a reasonable amount, he posts all of the story - and in fact, he did get enough, and he did post the whole thing. I'll list it below. There's also random authors who actually retain the rights and publish their entire work on the web, usually under some form of Creative Commons license. So, read, pay attention to the rules for distribution, and enjoy!

  • The Spriggan Mirror by Lawrence Watt-Evans
  • Star Dragon by Mike Brotherton
  • The Baen Free Library - A collection of free books, many of them very popular titles for Baen Publishing
  • The Baen CDs - Baen also included, either in it's books, or in promotional material to booksellers, a number of CDs containing free e-books, some already in the Baen Free Library, others not. The 10 CDs to date contain more than 110 different books, although most books appear on more than one of the CDs.

Harry Potter Fanfic info:

    A good site, with a few selected authors that update regularly. The emphasis seems to be on quality over quantity. The site design is very clean and usable. All types of stories, including non-Harry Potter fanfics and crossovers are here, but the primary focus is Harry Potter fanfics. Stories range from K to the lower levels of X.
    A nice site so far, that focuses primarily on sexually-oriented stories. Free registration is required.
    A general fanfic website, not one specifically for Harry Potter stories. It allows sexually-oriented material, although requiring free registration to access it. There's a collaborative rating system to help find stories you might like.
    Another general fanfic website, but possibly the largest out there. Author's profiles include listings by them of their favorite authors and stories from the site, as an aid to finding more good reading material.
    A very emphatically Harry Potter only fanfic site, with Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, and Remus/Tonks pairings, or pairings of minor characters that don't contradict the above, being the only ones acceptable (other than transitory pairs for story purposes). Sexually-oriented stories are not accepted.
    Harry Potter fanfics, with a strong emphasis on thorough proofing to try to raise the quality. Generally no adult material, though. Strong emphasis on being in canon - and the movies are definitely not canon. Many very good stories here.
    A relatively small collection, but well split up by pairings. Some stories are very mature, though.
  • MuggleNet
    MuggleNet is primarily a Harry Potter news site, but it also has a fairly good sized collection of fanfics.
  • Eros & Sapphos
    If you are easily offended, stay away from this website - this site is entirely "slash" - that is, male/male or female/female romances. If this is not your thing - there's a whole bunch of other sites listed above.
  • Lumos
    A general Harry Potter fanfic site with a good number of stories. Feel free to stop in and visit!
  • Sink Into Your Eyes
    Often referred to on other websites as SIYE, this site focuses on Harry/Ginny fanfics. Primarily organized by where in the timeline the stories fall (pre-Order of the Phoenix, Post-Order of the Phoenix, Post-Half Blood Prince, or Alternate Universe).
    A somewhat odd site, in that it's divided into several subsections, but those subsections are also treated as separate sites, even to having their own domain names (,,, and Lots of very unusual stories here, too. Seems to be one of the sources for a lot of the "ship" names describing the various pairings.
    Strictly a Ron & Hermione site, this one doesn't seem to actually host much, rather selecting stories from other sites and linking to them.
  • Flourish and Blotts
    A small little site, dedicated to the Draco/Hermione pairing. It takes all kinds, I guess.
  • The Ruby Quill
    While saying it takes all kinds of stories, a quick survey of this relatively small site finds most of the stories are male slash, especially Harry/Draco and Harry/Lucius. However, it does seem to be a well-done site, so if that's your kind of story, take a look!
  • Simply Undeniable
    Dedicated to Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione fics. Others are allowed as long as they don't contradict the two canon romances. Really nice graphics, too. Not a large site, but a smooth browsing experience.
  • The Hidden Tower
    Another small site, with a few selected authors. Very nicely done, easy on the eyes.
    A very large site, which claims to be the oldest site dedicated specificaly to Harry Potter fanfics. Allows banner images on stories, which can sometimes get distracting, but over all, a good place to look for something to read.
    A fairly large store of fanfiction, with very colorful text. Primarily focused on Harry/Hermione, Lily/James, Draco/Ginny, and Ron/Luna stories.
  • The Unknowable Room
    Another small archive, this one set up after a break caused by certain policy changes at, and the subsequent deletion by them of a number of fanfics.
    While not huge, there's a good selection of stories available, all categorized quite nicely. The layout of the site is pretty straight-forward as well.
  • HP Romance
    A Place For All Shippers - site is on hiatus, but has some nice artwork. Doesn't seem to host much content directly, instead re-organizing and linking to other sites - much like my site.
  • Harry Potter All Grown Up
    I'm not real sure about this site, but they've got several stories, so I went ahead & listed them. They're in the process though of moving off of a geocities-based site, so that probably accounts for a lot of the issues.
    No relation that I can see to, but basically the same kind of site, except that it focuses on adult fanfics. Categorization is primarily by the pairing in the story, but the list of pairings shows a certain lack of imagination, having a section for Harry/Other Male Character, but none for Harry/Other Female Character, nor a section for multiples. Still, some good stories, as usual.
  • Checkmated
    A medium-sized collection, the site bills itself as a Ron/Hermione site, but there certainly are other pairings represented.
