gridlore: Doug looking off camera with a grin (Distracted)

  • My day in a nutshell.

  • What really sucks is I went to Lodi for nothing. A poorly-written Return order meant that I went after something another office was retrieving already.

  • At least I got to drive through Lodi's wine country. Very pretty this time of year.

  • Which reminds me, I need to grab a bottle of Earthquake.. something

  • Been rewatching the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Helm's Deep always makes me scream. You do not build a long, straight ramp up to your gate! You put a 90° turn or two in there to prevent the enemy from bringing up a battering ram. You also build a section that you can raise.

  • And what idiot built a drain that large when you have freaking caves you could run the drain water into?

  • I do like the orc Olympic torch bearer.

  • Of course, the Rohirrim generally fail as warriors. You have an army marching towards you, largely foot mobile. Send out cavalry raids to harass them. Ride to within bowshot, loose a flight, ride away. Do this multiple times over the course of a couple of days. You won't cause many casualties, but you will degrade efficiency and slow their march.

  • But then Théoden King seems to be a bit of a prat in all things.

  • Maybe it's time to reread the books again. It's been 20 years.

  • Wow, Wikisurfing is addictive. Look away from the LotR pages, Doug.

  • Let's go Giants!
