Sorry for the radio silence, awfully busy at the moment:

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/2015/05/awfully-busy/
Sorry for the radio silence the last few days – I've just been swamped with offline stuff. Nothing interesting, I'm afraid. But hi, all you new visitors from Tumblr! I see the John Barrowman/Gatekeeping and Recourse post is making another around. Good to see you! Oh, what's going on…

sad puppy brad torgersen lies like crazy and juliette wade calls him on it:

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/?p=7184
[Juliette]: Brad, I am sorry, but if you will be labeling me as a sad puppy I will have to ask you to withdraw me from your list. Brad [Torgersen]: You've not been labeled a sad puppy. This is the :fight puppy-related sadness list” I contacted you about earlier. You said you were OK with it.

On the woman left out by space.com in their article on the propellentless space drive - she is Professor Juan Yang, and she's from China.

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/2015/05/professor-juan-yang-from-china/
The propellentless electric drive may actually work, says latest NASA test. That's super cool. Seriously, I am crazy excited about that. I'm still holding off on going WOOHOO MOON EXPRESS because this is very much in that category of “extraordinary claims” and “extraordinary evidence,” but wow, ...

Leannan Sidhe are in for a recording session today, for the first time in a while:

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/2015/04/recording-session-today/
Roses and Ruin is a Leannan Sidhe album project. It's akin to Cracksman Betty in that it's single-day efforts, with only light production. Unlike Cracksman Betty, it wasn't ever wrapped up. And Leannan Sidhe is coming over today to record the first new track for the project since…

Edmund Schubert bows out of the #hugoawards, but I have more to say about his commentary that his publisher Orson Scott Card's politics shouldn't matter. A lot more.

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/2015/04/edmund-schubert-bows-out/
John Scalzi has posted that Edmund Schubert, editor of Intergalactic Medicine Show, has pulled his name from Hugo consideration in response to the Puppies slates – most particularly, the Rabid Puppies version. I have one thing I must, again, call out. Mr. Schubert predictably defends Orson Scott ...

With a new Raptor-class shuttle comes new landing tolerances. I didn't have the traditional tennis ball, so I just used a bit of old muppet pelt.

With a new Raptor-class shuttle comes new landing tolerances. I didn't have the traditional tennis ball, so I just used a bit of old muppet pelt. I sure could use some help counting to four! And if you're in the Seattle area, the surplus one's up for sale. Logging In... Profile cancel ...

I just discovered a possible vulnerability in a Wordpress plugin, but other than patching it on my own site... what now?

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/2015/05/discovered-possible-vulnerability/
I just discovered a possible vulnerability in a WordPress plugin that supports OpenID authentication for comments. The developer's website is down and the plugin hasn't been updated in two years. What's protocol for this these days? I've trivially patched my own install, but (particularly ...

You know you've run ‪#‎nwcmusic‬ too long when...

You know you've been running a festival too long when you find you're reflexively doing crowd-counts at somebody's wedding. It probably didn't help that they had The Heather Dale Band in for the show nuptials, but still. XD. (Hi Ben! Hi Heather! And congratulations to Naomi and Glenn!) ...

Oh, Puppies, when will you learn how the Internet works? John Ringo's deleted essay, "Understanding SJW Logic and why it is destroying science fiction."

"Some things which leapt out at me," or, thoughts on unconscious erasure, at the most minor levels:
