Angel of the Revolution

FF X title

I think I've finally come up with a useful title for Forgotten Futures X, the Thorne Smith RPG

It is...

roll drums...

clash symbols...

High Spirits

Don't all cheer at once...

Possibly subtitled "Martinis and Magic" or some equivalent, if I can find something alliterative and appropriate to the 1920s / 30s.

Let me know if someone else has already used it for an RPG!

I may be off-line for a few days - haven't decided yet if I'm going to pay my hotel's ludicrous fee for WiFi access. If I'm not on-line I'll be back Tuesday.

New toy

Thanks to autopope I now have my shiny new toy - a slightly used iBook G4, with which, so far, I am pretty pleased, and once I can teach myself not to hit caps lock instead of "a" I will be ecstatic. To celebrate I've splurged on WiFi access for the weekend (I'm at the UK national SF convention) so I'm not going to be quite as silent as expected.

I'd love to know why Apple made a couple of decisions; the one that particularly bugs me is that every other pad-mouse thing I've used has had a "tap it to enter a mouse click" option, this doesn't seem to do that unless it's deep in the setup menu, and I'm still no used to hitting the button below the pad. And WTF isn't there a "del" key as well as backspace? I daresay all will become clear in time. Got a bluetooth keyboard and mouse with it, but haven't used them in anger yet. Currently using Safari and encountering no problems, though I still haven't figured out how to make it full screen - no doubt it's blindingly obvious once you know how.

Anyway, here I am, assimilated by the Apple collective. Expect me to be asking a LOT of questions over the next few months...
