Does anyone else using Nativespace for their web hosting currently have problems with their site? Can't seem to access mine at present, and can't get into my nativespace account without a password which is on another computer and I don't have time to get into right now, since I have to leave for work.
What makes me worry is that I've requested they send me a password reminder by email and got no reply. Really isn't like them at all.
I finally finished off Mars for the Weinbaum RPG - did so by ditching a couple of thousand words which let me tie it off more effectively and will hopefully make it a more interesting read.
I need to write something about the asteriods in the Weinbaum universe, which is a little tricky since none of the stories go there and they are only mentioned twice, both times VERY briefly.
Since this is a fairly hard science universe I can't really justify breathable atmospheres etc. so descriptions will have a certain sameness -I think I'm going to confine myself to a list of a few that are interesting for one reason or another. Say the the first four discovered and a couple of the really eccentric ones such as Eros and possible one of the Earth-grazers. Preferably ones that were known in the 1930s, or could easily be discovered then. Any nominations?
The Wikipedia article on Ceres makes it sound like there's quite a lot of water there. Given that in the Weinbaum universe Jupiter is fairly hot, could I conceivably get away with there being a frigid sea under the ice, kept molten by tidal forces and Jupiter's heat whenever they're close to each other?
In other news, I think that it was a good idea to offer the FF CD-ROM as a download. Sales seem to have picked up a little, though it's too early to tell if this is additional to sales of a physical CD or is taking the place of CD sales. I should know more when I check over the next few weeks.
