          Help us find middle names for our twins.      Cache   Translate Page      
Mr. Millipede and I are expecting boy-girl twins in February. We've got first names. We've got a last name. We are having an extraordinarily difficult time with middle names, and a long series of caveats/needs/preferences for said names. Up for the challenge? Please help.

Here are the facts.

1) Superstition is going to have me playing charades to tell you their first names.

-Her first name will begin with S: two syllables, with the accent on the second syllable, which features a long 'o' vowel. She will share her first name with a well-known female existentialist philosopher, and a current American gymnast, but she is named after her father's maternal grandfather.

-His first name will begin with B: three syllables, with the accent on the first syllable. He will share his first name with the inventor of the lightning rod, and Biblical Jacob's youngest son, but he is named after his mother's paternal grandfather.

First names are non-negotiable, will not be turned into middle names instead, and I'm not asking for critiques of them.


2) Now that that's out of the way, here are some stylistic rules.

-Their last name will begin with D. Thus, neither middle name can start with A, to preclude "BAD" and "SAD" acronyms.

-His middle name cannot start with J.

-I strongly dislike 'very common middle name' style middle names--for example, Marie, or Anne (which is my own middle name), and whatever the male equivalent of these names are.

-I strongly dislike trendy names. We are willing to go a little weird for middle names, but not weird in the direction of trendy.


3) And here, at last, is the insane wish list of what we want.

-We'd like them to be thematically matched somehow, but not be male/female versions of the exact same name.

-We'd like them to have meanings we like, and not just be names that sound nice. Our initial idea was to find words in languages culturally relevant to us, with meanings of concepts we like. Concepts we like include: justice/fairness, love, truth, light, intelligence, kindness/gentleness. Languages relevant to us, aside from English (and I don't care for 'virtue' names like Faith, Prudence, Charity, etc), are Russian (which Mr. Millipede speaks fluently, so this would be the preferred source), Hebrew, and Danish. Oof. I also have some French-Belgian ancestry so maybe French? Anyway, these proved to be hard, and Hebrew wound up a no because we don't want to give them Biblical names for both their first and middle names.

-We like math/chemistry/physics/astronomy and think it would be neat to have names from one of these fields. Mr. Millipede had the idea of binary star systems; from there we thought of twin planets. These did not give us any names we liked, but maybe we didn't look hard enough.

-So, we LIKE math/chemistry/physics/astronomy and DO think it would be neat to have names from one of these fields, but I DON'T want to name them after other PEOPLE. We fell down a famous mathematician wormhole and then I realized that--they're already named after people and I don't want to name them after more people.

-I feel the "no naming them after more people" rule has a loophole when said people are characters in literature, or mythological, and maybe maybe maybe also if they've been dead for over a thousand years.

-I really do want them to match thematically somehow. This is harder than it seems.

-My first name starts with L and Mr. Millipede's first name starts with V and for awhile we were thinking it would be nice if one kid's middle name started with an L and the other started with a V. We are not tied to this, though, and it proved very difficult especially for male names. Just tossing it out there in case it helps spark ideas.

-I think that is all.

-Thank you.

-This is difficult. I'm sorry!

The Freeze-Frame Revolution   
by Peter Watts (2018)

read: 6 November 2018
rating: [+]

Watts swears this is a novella but it’s got enough going on in it to really seem like a full on book. In fact I sort of wanted more of this weird story about a long term (think millennia) space voyage to install wormholes where the human crew is regularly put into and out of suspended animation by the not-that-bright AI. And maybe something is wrong? And given that, how do you plan to shake things up? I liked Watts' attention to this especially because a lot of the time I find his stories a little on the dark side for me but I love his plots and so I pick up his books hoping I’ll find a thing that I can dig into. This was that thing.

It's a ho-ho-humongous collection of Disney Yuletide tales! Mickey and Donald meet up one winter day to find that Christmas suddenly doesn't exist... and hasn't been celebrated for 60 years! It's the start of a time-travel saga full of wacky wormholes, kleptomaniac robot Santas--and a perilous Phantom Blot plot in "'Tis No Season!" Then Daisy, Donald, and Gladstone have a not-so-jolly holiday in "Christmas Clubbing." Plus, this collection also includes the stories "The Sinister Space Santa," "Th

          0020754: Instigator Variety      Cache   Translate Page      
I've noticed that, when it comes to the Instigator bases that spawn extra units, they only ever create one singular type of unit.<br /> <br /> <br /> The only unit they create is the AI Concussion Guardian, of varying mark levels the longer the game goes on and the higher the AIP gets. Not a huge issue by itself, but it gets really boring having to fight the same unit over and over and over....<br /> <br /> <br /> I'm not sure if the Instigator units are supposed to adhere to any sort of tactical logic or anything, but at the moment all these Instigator-spawned Guardians do is kamikaze charge in a neat little line right to your Homeworld as soon as they spawn. You can literally just cap a wormhole with some ambush turrets and a shield generator for a hard counter, and its a bit dull after a while.

Wormholes are usually illustrated as gaping gravity wells linked by a narrow tunnel, but their precise shape has been unknown — until now.
