Starting Out Hopeful

I got up and into working condition really early today. I managed to write the letter we'll be sending to our condo unit owners, announcing a 3 percent assessment fee increase, and I'm actually posting this before I start to work on my business laptop. In my books, that counts as getting out of the starting blocks rather well.

And to keep this post from being completely self-referential, is anyone out there on my f'list watching The Expanse? If so, do you want to geek out about it? I"m finding it to be destination viewing, and some of the best science fiction I've seen on television since Battlestar Galactica.

I hope your letter achieves what you want it to.

Haven't heard of 'The Expanse', but I'm rubbish on new telly!

Well, it will tell the unit owners they can get ready for a 3 percent increase. It's not much, and we'll probably have to levy another special assessment, but for now, it's just 3 percent. It won't stop some people from moaning, but there's always some people who moan.

"The Expanse" is a SyFy (I really hate that name) Channel original series, based on a series of books. I haven't read the books, but I'm really impressed with the quality of the story, the attempt to make some of it at least try to fit the real laws of physics, and the acting. It's got some neat political and social concepts, mixed up with all sorts of other things.

Real laws of physics? I haven't seen that for a while;) Not quite sure where Syfy programmes end up on British TV.

If you ever got the rebooted Battlestar Galactica, there's a good chance that one of your channels would eventually pick this one up.

And yes, most live SF doesn't obey the laws of physics at all. This one makes a stab at it, by refering what acceleration can do to the body; how super-far distances would affect the timelines of communications, the fact that on most space ships, you wouldn't have gravity; you'd have magnetic books, or something else to help keep you attached, etc. etc.

I've seen 'Battlestar Galactica' bouncing around the minor digital channels, so 'The Expanse' could well turn up:)

It really is worth at least one shot, says the stone-cold fan. Heh.
