Just trying to be on the safe side and let's face it, I'm not getting any younger. It does reduce the number of things I do regularly, ay least a little. Which means I can spend more time writing, or in my case; looking at the screen, trying to remember where I was going with a scene, and why.

Admiral's Throne is it? I suspect you'll make it more of a hot seat. 
 

I just put Admiral's Fall up for beta on pacific crest yesterday.  And yeah Admiral's Throne should be interesting. I'm not 100% married to the name but I think its a good one!

I'm really sorry to hear that things keep sliding downhill pain/concentration wise.  I hope you can finish your books soon.

Me too, but like I said we don't take chances. There is 7 people in the house and everyone has at least two systems with two monitors per system. I personally have 3 systems and 6 monitors. Way too much money and data to be taking chances with. I do have offline backup drives but they shouldn't be an excuse to get careless.  Right now I'm writing a couple programs to automate a couple of things I do often. it will not only free up time but I'm also finding it more difficult to do the. It takes concentration I'm begining to be in short supply of, so I'm trying to set things up while I can.

I am getting a little writing done each day, at least when there are not any thunderstorms rolling through. Can't wait to finish the story so I can go back and start puting some real meat on it.

Got a little more writing done today. I do feel I'm making a little progress since a little tension is starting to build. We'll see how it goes from here. We've had thunder storms nearly everyday this week. Pain in the ass. Despite having circuit protectors, we still turn every thing off when they roll through, just to be safe. Had one hit in the field in back night before last. Lot's of fun.

He was always good at coming up with gags like that. He and his friends in high school would make horror movies that weren't too bad. They made a pretty realistic skeletal corpse with rotting flesh and maggots. Used to freak people out when we'd drive around with it sitting in the passenger seat. But he was never a good story teller.

Very cool.

22k - Admiral 14 and still up in the air on the name ideas.  Admiral's Endgame, Admiral and King, Admiral Monarch, Admiral and Monarch?

Anyway yeah but I'll figure it out.  Also it sounds like you're closing in on the end of your story.  I hope you're able to finish it up and polish it off in time to publish it at some point, SP.

I should be able to finish it soon. I got the font size jacked up and using the magnifier windows provides, which helps to see the screen better. The biggest problem is still being able to hold the story in my head so I know what direction the scenes are supposed to go. Not being able to hold all the names and places in my head means I have to keep looking it up anew every day. I used to be able hold a dozen different things in my head at a time but with the constant pain and drugs It takes every effort to focus on just what's in front of me.

My brother thought it cool to be on the set a couple times while they filmed the movie. He got me a crew sweatshirt. His friend was David Loughery. The Movie was Star Trek V. One of the gags my brother wrote was Scotty saying he knew the ship like the back of his hand, just before he hit his head on a bulkhead. Unfortunately, they had a falling out shortly after the movie was finished.
