The home laptop might be developing power drawing issues again. Hivemind, what’s a good, cheap Windows-using Surface/Surface Pro knockoff?

Tonight's Hero of Three Faces archive retcon project is to replace Red Nose Day Doctor Nine with Red Nose Day Doctor Thirteen, for two reasons, which range from obvious to matters to no one but me.

The obvious reason is to bring into my cartoons the only existing female screen Doctor. I'm ashamed not to have done it before now. I plead assumptions I'd failed to notice are no longer valid, which brings me to the other reason.

The reason which matters to no one but me is that the face I've always used for Red Nose Day Alternate Doctor is the one that the Doctor stops using in The Curse of the Fatal Death, the air date of which is in my chronology when Red Nose Day Doctor starts appearing. In the continuity of my fanfiction of 1999 that made sense, because I'd consigned the events of Fatal to a dream, in order to convert the girl companion from someone called Emma into the third incarnation of the Doctor's half Romulan half sister Saavik of Vulcan, whom I'd already used in one prose story but had no screen or cartoon face for. But since I rebooted the Three Faces continuity last summer and the Fatal companion has reverted to being someone called Emma (even though Saavik is still half Time Lord), there is no need to unhappen Fatal, so the Red Nose Day Doctor's face needs to be the one that Fatal ended with.

There's only one cartoon in the active archive that this affects, but I've already scripted another for her for the new season in the fall. First: triangle character design.

You can't have too much diversity. There's centuries to make up for.

Today I miss AKOTAS enough to wonder how the spreadsheet formulas would have to be updated.
There are all those years I skipped over.
The trick may be to get enough distance from AKOTAS so that writing it feels like writing fanfiction.
In the 90s I did that with Dailies characters from the 80s.

Reviving AKOTAS as daily gags again is an attractive prospect (assuming any revival), but today I'm thinking no, better some new format.
On the other hand, tryna do AKOTAS as a novel only reminded me that gag panels are my best thing. Hmm.

Man, I knew the holiday season would be a solid month of grief trigger, but the onset of spring?

My computer repair guy tried replacing a blown component on the board of my wife’s exterior drive that she knocked off the couch, and he powered it up, and another component blew. He says the problem’s damage to the motor, and the data recovery would require transferring the plates to another drive in a professional clean room the like of which service starts at about a thousand bucks. Up till then, since he’d opened it up last week, he’d been confident he’d be able to not just recover the data but probably repair the drive, so this news is very disappointing. I don’t even really know what she had on the drive; mostly photos and videos of David Tennant, probably, but it might also be where she had some of the ones from our cameras, among similar things I’d like to have if I knew they existed. I was looking forward to finding out, and to transferring there all the files from her last laptop and from all her flashdrives so I could have the files all in one place to go through (and the flashdrives freed up for my use). I can get another exterior drive for the files from other places but for a few days I thought I’d have it all. Not that I’m going to throw this drive out.

Everything I know about the shootout at the OK Corral comes from Star Trek, Doctor Who, and M*A*S*H.

Rioting has been the American way since Boston Harbor. Independence, labor reform, sports championships. You don’t hate rioting, you resent being rioted against. You don’t want to admit you’re the bad guy this time.

Subject:recently posted to alt.tv.mash
Time:07:33 pm
Years ago and for years, when I could connect to Usenet by telnet or when the Google UI and search function was usable, I was a regular reader and poster at alt.tv.mash here. I once got into a big argument with a couple of people, a regular and someone who was new, over Henry Blake’s children. I maintained that there were two boys and a girl, and the other guys maintained there were two girls and a boy.

I maintained that there were two boys and a girl because at least two episodes feature Henry on the phone with a son Andrew and because the child born in the first season finale was a boy. Yes, that means the single daughter was called by two different names in different seasons of the show, but so was his wife and no one was arguing on that basis that Henry had two wives.

The new person left the group because I could quote dialog to support my position and he couldn’t similarly cite specific sources, and he wasn’t prepared for that to fail to persuade me.

Both of them argued that Henry had two daughters out of three kids on the basis of the family photos on Henry’s desk. The contention was that the triptych photo frame contained one photo of a daughter, one photo of the wife and a different daughter, and one photo of a son. Now, the basis of my expertise in M*A*S*H trivia was and is the audio recordings I made on my cassette recorder of the original airings of the first six years in the 70s. I didn’t and don’t own the episodes on DVD. So I was as unable to refute an argument based on visual evidence as the newbie was unable to rebut me.

But this month [February] the first five season of M*A*S*H showed up on Netflix.

As I write, there is a freeze frame from Henry In Love (season two, episode sixteen) on my tv screen. It’s from the moment when Hawkeye says, “Secure in the knowledge that very few Japanese correspond with your wife,” at timestamp 17:44 [EDIT since writing this, I’ve become more familiar with the Netflix display and realized that that figure was time remaining, not time elapsed]. Hawkeye is holding up the photo triptych to display it to Henry. If memory serves (cuz Google Search sure doesn’t) this is the episode, if not the single shot, that was being cited as the basis for the existence of photos of two Blake daughters.

The shot frozen on my tv at this moment clearly shows that the people pictured in the photos in the triptych frame are, left to right, first a daughter, second the wife with a son and the same daughter again, and third the same son again.

Perhaps it is small of me, after all this time, but I am unable to spot that and subsequently refrain from posting here that the primary premise in the argument against mine on this subject was false.
