munchkin wrangler writing music
For background music while writing, I like movie soundtracks, because they don’t distract me with lyrics. When you think about it, they’re pretty much designed to evoke a mood without pulling your attention away from what you’re seeing/doing.
hunting in africa with .50 beowulf
The .50 Beowulf is a low-pressure round utilizing a heavy bullet, 300 to 400 grains. It’s designed for stopping power and barrier penetration at relatively short ranges, and the ballistics are comparable to a standard pressure .45-70. It’s not a terrible round for big game, but I can think of many better ones, and I sure wouldn’t try to use it on dangerous game. The whole point of the .50 Beowulf is to squeeze a big pill into the magazine well of an AR-15, and launch it at a safe pressure for the AR’s gas system…and an AR has no place in the gun case if you’re packing for an African safari.

i leave my beretta jetfire uncocked
That’s the way it’s meant to be carried: hammer down on a loaded chamber. (That’s why the hammer spur has the thumb-friendly shape.) The safety on a Jetfire only blocks the trigger, not the sear, and I wouldn’t rely on it for cocked-and-locked carry.

nvidia ion without fan
The ION has no fan. The ION needs no fan. The heat sink for the chipset can get a little warm to the touch, but the whole thing draws less than 30 watts under full load, and 3-4W when idling. My ION rig is pulling home server and HTPC duties behind the TV, and it’s always on. Despite the lack of a fan, there aren’t any heat issues, even when playing 1080p content.
how to write a good military novel
Same way you write any other kind of good novel: come up with interesting characters, and put them in interesting situations.
We’re light on content and low on snark for today’s MSTS, so I’ll throw in a completely unrelated bonus picture of two randomly selected neighborhood kids:
