Q: Public domain images of Little Fuzzy?

Jeff DegeI've been rereading H. Beam Piper's "Little Fuzzy", and I had a thought for a t-shirt I might have made to wear to my next Con. But it requires an image of Little Fuzzy. Any ideas where I might find one?

Q: Live action movie, space station/colony destroyed by drones at end

Nu'DaqThis was a sci-fi film that I saw the end of on TV either late 80's/early 90's. Unfortunately I only remember the end where the space station (I think) the main characters live and work on is under attack by robot fighter-drones. The station's crew rally to defend the station, but it seems to be ...

Q: In what short story did the protagonist have to convince a relativistic ship/cycler to not destroy life in his system as a precautionary measure?

Mark CThe setting is on a remote station or outpost on a planet I believe. The character whom the narration follows (1st or 3rd POV) has only objects like a telescope and a radio transceiver to communicate. The exact means the plot precipitates is not important, but I believe a coordinated war breaks o...

Royal ViperI was reading a manga where the MC was reincarnated into another world after receiving two XP related skills/blessings from two goddesses as they had a mix-up and both gave him a skill/blessing when he should only have one, I believe they were something like 20 times growth and 1/20 XP needed, or...

Q: What are the bosses references to in Violent Storm?

BuzzThe 1993 Konami video game "Violent Storm" features a lot of allusions to earlier works in various media. The whole game is patterned after Capcom's "Final Fight"—itself a game with characters named after Andre the Giant and Axl Rose—and other homages to Capcom include martial artists enemies na...

Q: Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee for the Emperor and his family only

AlfredI'd like to find a SF novel, "space opera" type, of which I remember just one scene. There is apparently an Emperor, either for the whole known Universe, or just some part of it. But this Emperor is probably just like the one of Japan now, he does not appear in the story except for this one refer...

Q: Have the Little Fuzzy sequels been published as ebooks?

Jeff DegeI've been rereading H. Beam Piper's "Little Fuzzy" novels. He wrote three: Little Fuzzy Fuzzy Sapiens Fuzzies and Other People (which was lost and published posthumously) And then there were two unauthorized sequels, written before the third book was found: Fuzzy Bones, by William Tuning Golde...

@AncientSwordRage I grant you it's only the preamble to the "how," which goes off into traditional labour practices (craftsmen, as compared to factory workers), union and political action; too much even to really summarize. Hence the previous statement ending with an ellipsis. :)
@DavidW ok, but this weekend specifically...
Unrelated: how is your weekend going?

Q: How big exactly is the Millennium Falcon?

Louis HolmesThe Millennium Falcon is a pretty big ship. But what are its exact dimensions and mass?

Is there a way to hide Marvin and other feeds temporarily?
You can ignore him like you do with normal users.
"hide posts" does the same thing, but is temporary, unlike an ignore
(i.e. click on the user icon and then "ignore this user".)
Is that timed?
4:33 PM
Oh, so you mean just for the current session? Didn't even know about this feature.
It's odd seeing all of the "3 hours later" notifications stacked up.
With nothing in between, I mean.
I left and came back in, and now Marvin's back. Exactly as advertised.

Q: Looking for a children's book about math, numbers, and puzzles

MatthiasI remember when I was a child or young teen (~late 90s / 2000s) I had two books that were illustrated in a cartoon style. One covered math topics like the Fibonacci sequence, the golden ratio, googol. The other wasn't math related, but I remember reading about Zen, specifically that money rolls o...

@NapoleonWilson very nice!
How did you do the light?
7:04 PM
@SQB Radium? :D
7:24 PM
@SQB Thanks.
@SQB LEDs, specifically ones intended for use with LEGO. You can see the cable going behind the figure (and then outside under the wall).
Otherwise the light in the hallway comes from the photo box and the room is mostly light by daylight.
@NapoleonWilson Seriously, that is an excellent build. I love the details, like above the ceiling.
Thanks. Yes, I tried to capture one of these infamous air ducts from the game that the alien likes to pop out of. ;-)
7:50 PM
@NapoleonWilson that's awesome
That too, though! ;-)
@NapoleonWilson have you down anybody over on Arqade or the Lego stack?
Nah, I just dropped it here because it's scifi (and off-topic in the Screening Room). ;-)

Q: Writer tries to discredit exorcism, gets haunted by demons

FuzzyBootsI think I read this between 3 and 5 years ago, so around the year 2018 give or take a year. The central plot was that the narrator is a writer, a so much notorious one, who has decided to write a book, or perhaps a series of articles, disproving the supernatural. Near the beginning of the book, h...
