it's a very good idea, especially when you consider the 8 minutes it takes for light to get from the Sun's surface to the earth, presumably a similar short notice time might be required for this ruse.

Although, looking (as I do) at Spaceweather.com, some forecasting efforts are made that depict a warning window of hours not minutes.

Is it just me or is there a Tempest Class battleship in the last panel...

Chapter 11 pg 15... I don't want to nitpick, because the artwork and storyline have been consistently engaging and high-quality. As a result, this tiny error was actually somewhat jarring to me - but the correct spelling is "Personnel."

I'm very curious to see how this episode plays out!

Oh, against regulations? Perhaps monitored by this Big Brother of a computer system? That would be an interesting turn.

Meh... I'm sure the arts of frequency-hopping and encryption has not been lost. Though I wonder how long the keys have to be?

You could tape the cricket...

I don't know, Christmas has become a great time of year again (or still, more so) since I had kids. I get to be a kid all over again and enjoy seeing them have fun over the holidays. Join in the waterfights, waterslides, pool trips, whatever... while I'm not such a fan of the really hot weather, the balmy mild climate is really lovely.

Alternately, it could be said that most bears have the right execution, just the wrong hemisphere.

Christmas down under must be a very different experience. I'm fond of Christmastime waterfights too, as long as the H2O is in a slightly cooler physical state.

Pfft, where's the fun in that? Part of the joy is listening to the live commentary on ABC radio while working on CD.

Well I am happily childless and hope to remain so. The activities you describe sound less like fun and more like my own personal nightmare :shock:

Christmas in Sydney is generally defined by stinking hot weather, cold beers (for those who are so inclined), people in Santa suits sweating heavily and nearly passing out from heat stroke, and air choked by smoke from bushfires. Yet for some reason, shops still decorate their windows with snowflakes and reindeer. I blame American television.

:shakes fist:

Christmas in Brisbane is a bit more balmy and tropical island-ish. A bit more chilled out (who the heck is going to move fast and act stressed in this heat?) though it is 1000 km closer to the equator (think Orlando, Florida), it doesn't get the extremes of Sydney (generally) and is more moderate, with lovely breezes. Though I do pity the santas, most stay in air-con shopping centres, and seem to survive, even if they do lose significant amounts of weight. Bushfires are a problem, but summer storms are a bigger one for us northerners, and cyclone season becomes a problem too.
